ANZAC Day crafting

Today is Anzac Day – a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations and the contribution and suffering of all those who have served. Lest we forget.

I was at a dawn service today, so have been up for quite some time and have decided to put this extra time to good use and get crafty – considering I’ll have no time this weekend as it’s all about Miss K and netball with games, tournaments and watching the Melbourne Vixens and Magpies play.

I’m finally working my way through some pre-stamped, coloured and cut out pieces I’ve had in my stash for a while.

Card #1 is for AAA Cards #138 Along the edge.

I chose along the bottom and left edge for my card layout (no sewing though!). The floral set is probably from Altenew which I borrowed from my friend Michelle and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp ‘Amazing’. I water coloured the flowers then added some twine and sequins for the finishing effect.

Card #2 is for Freshly Made Sketches #386.

I stamped and die cut the butterfly with Stampin Up ‘Watercolor wings’, used some black and white polka dot DSP from Catherine Pooler Designs and a sentiment from Stampin Up ‘Butterfly gala’ for this super quick and CAS card. Don’t you love the gold on the wings?

Card #3 is for a new to me challenge, Tuesday Morning Sketches #500.

I flipped the sketch on it’s side, masked of the centre panel then stamped one of the leaves from the Kaisercraft ‘Whisper’ stamp set in Catherine Pooler Designs eucalypus ink – I did some double stamping without reinking to give some depth. I then stamped the butterfly and sentiment in black ink; added a couple of sequins and this OLC was done.

Card #4 is for CASology #340 – Africa.

My card uses an image from Katzelkraft ‘Les jungles’. I adore this flat elephant and made a sentiment on my PC to match how he looked.

Lastly, card #5 is for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #138 – N is for nerd!

I created a card for my ‘nerdy gamer’ hubby. I used a stamp set from Pretty Cute Stamps called ‘Game on’ (this set has some great snarky sentiments in it) and the Altenew cube stencil. I added a few ink splatters to finish of this card. This will go into my stash for next Valentines Day!

Well, I’d better get making my DT cards which are due in May. Thanks for looking and have a great day.
