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