Saturday Makes

Happy weekend everyone. Looks like here in Melbourne, we’re in for another scorcher so getting my crafting in before the day heats up.

First up is a card for the Library Challenge. I was inspired by the cover layout and colour.

I used Stampin Up products for my card. The stamp set is ‘So Hoppy Together’, I love these cheeky frogs and added some googly eyes for extra character. He’s coloured in with my Stampin Blends and popped up on some die cut circles and leaves from the ‘Botanical Blooms’ bundle.

Next up is a card for the Snarky Stampers challenge which is all about D for diet!

Now it was difficult to choose a card for this challenge as I was having so much fun playing with a new stamp set I got with a magazine called ‘New Year, New You’. In the end, I settled on the cake. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut the cake and strawberries and mounted them onto a card base where I’d ink smooshed some blue ink. Mounted them all on a bit of black and white striped cardstock and then a white card base. I think I’m feeling hungry now!

Next is a card for 2 challenges – AAA Cards and Addicted to CAS.

I water coloured the little pig from the ‘Birthday Farm Animals'” by Simon Says Stamp and added him to a card base with a stencil from MFT ‘Checkerboard’ that looked like a grid. I used some modelling paste with a little bit of Stampin Up ‘Soft Sky’ ink mixed into it for some colour. The sentiment is from Stampin Up ‘Itty Bitty Birthdays’.

Lastly is a card for the CAS Colours & Sketches and Male Room challenges.

I love this sketch and thought it might go well with my Stampin Up ‘Geared Up Garage’ bundle. I kept it pretty simple with the gears die cut from silver cardstock and the sentiment heat embossed in silver on a black base and then mounted on white.

Well, that’s it for today. I need to get ready for Miss K’s netball. Thanks for looking and have a great day.
