Hello and a Happy Easter to you. I’m taking advantage of the 4 day break from work to get my craft on; oh and to eat hot cross buns and easter eggs!
Warning, this is another long post as I’ve played along with a variety of challenges and made 6 cards – I will keep it a bit briefer by not putting my process, just the cards and products used.
Card #1 is for the current CASology challenge #339 – leap.
The stamp is from Stamping Bella called ‘Uptown girl Bentley gets blown away’; not sure where the sentiment is from; I borrwed it from a friend without noting the company. I think this girl leaped to catch these balloons and stop them from flying away!
Card #2 is for Seize the Birthday #163 – birthday anything goes.
The floral stamp was borrowed from a friend (again I failed to note the manufacturer) and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp called ‘Amazing’. Isn’t this what everyone want’s to hear on their birthday?!
Card #3 is for As You Like It which is all about your favourite animal.
I used a Penny Black stamp called ‘Hang on tight’ and the sentiment is from Altenew ‘Bad days happen’. Cats are my fav animal; I’ve grown up with them since I was 18 months old; my life would not be the same without them in it. My current cat is a 13 yr old ginger boy called Oscar, who has nearly lost his eyesight but still gets around as if he can see and he often gets onto things and then looks like he is desperate for help to get down just like this guy!
Card #4 is for Just Add Ink #453 – choose two. I chose bunnies and flowers.
I used a stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays called ‘Somebunny’ and added a bit of movement to the bunny and balloon with a technique I saw Jennifer McGuire demonstrate. The flowers are little punched flowers using a Stampin Up retired trio punch.
Card #5 is for Addicted to CAS #157 – Humour.
I used an Altenew set called Peony Bouquet’ and a sentiment from Hero Arts called ‘Snarky Mix & Match Messages’. I love how you first see the Congrats sentiment, then when you look a bit more closely you see the snark!
Lucky last card #6 is for current Male Room Challenge #109 – anything goes with an optional twist of an OLC. I didn’t do the twist.
I used a stamp set from Katzelkraft called ‘Les Jungles’, a sentiment from Altenew called ‘Bad days happen’ and a stencil from CAS-ual Fridays. I find myself saying this phrase to my hubby often when he gets frustrated with the speed of our internet!
Well, thanks for looking and enjoy your Easter.
