Sunday Challenge Day

Well hello there – it’s another Sunday where I’m getting my craft on and playing along with a stack of challenges – warning – this is a long post!

Challenge Card #1 is for AAA Cards #137.

This card was super easy and quick to make. I used a stencil from Visible Images (borrowed from my friend Michelle) which I sponged in Catherine Pooler Designs inks, stamped a sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays ‘Shenanigans’ then used a stitched rectangle die to cut out the panel and mounted onto a white card base – done!

How pretty are these colours?

Challenge Card #2 is for CAS Colours & Sketches #316.

I stamped some floral images from a new Altenew Stamp set called ‘Ornate foliage’ which hasn’t been released yet, but I was lucky to receive a set when I was at the Melbourne Altenew workshop earlier this month. I coloured one main image in with my Altenew markers. The sentiment is from Stampin Up ‘Part of my story’ which I punched out and popped up on my card base.

I did a flick effect with a gray marker to make the flowers pop

Challenge Card #3 is for Just Us Girls #483.

I used the Visible Images butterfly stencil once again sponged with Catherine Pooler Design inks and another sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays ‘Shenanigans’ stamp set. This time I did a double stitched rectangle die cut and offset the middle panel to be slightly ‘off the edge’.

I love these blues and greens.

Challenge Card #4 is for Less is More #393

I played with a new stencil set from Altenew called ‘Layered Dahlia’ that I sponged in Altenew inks in Rose Quartz and Puffy Heart. I’ve never tried a layered stencil, but was surprised at how easy it was. The sentiment is from Hero Art called ‘Snarky mix and match messages’ inked in Purple Wine. I used my largest stitched rectangle die on the panel and mounted it on a white card base.

Love the soft feel of this card.

Challenge Card #5 is for two challenges: Fusion Card Challenge #Cheery eggs and Just Add Ink #452.

I was inspired by the colours of the eggs in the jar, so used some alcohol inks in the rainbow colours. I then punched out some circles from the AI panel to match the JAI sketch, stamped a sentiment from the Altenew ‘Bad days happen’ set which I popped up with some dimensionals and mounted it all on a white card base.

Don’t the circles look like bubbles?

Well, I think that might be it for today – thanks for looking (bearing with me through this long post) and have a great day.

  1. WOWZER Tristan… you have had fun today! I’ve been crafting but it’s all for future DT work so nothing I can share yet 😦 Still a little bit of the afternoon left while the guys (hubby and son) are watching car racing. You’ve inspired me with some of these challenges. Totally in love with your purple butterfly!
