Sunday Funday

Well, winter has truly come here to Melbourne. It’s cold, dark and rainy – perfect conditions for crafting!

T0day I’m being inspired by the challenge blogs I follow.

First up: AAA Cards #141 and Seize the Birthday #166.

I was inspired to make a bit of a rainbow look on my card using the same Happy die cut out from 5 different colours (for the happy 5th birthday) and layered slightly off kilter. I added the word to a stitched card panel and then the base and I was done.

Next up is a card for Just Add Ink #459 and the Sisterhood of Crafters – Wedding/Anniversary.

I loved the colour scheme from JAI and thought is was perfect to use with my Stamping Up Free as a Bird stamp set. I did a bit of colouring with my Stampin Blends, some fussy cutting and added some colour to the back of a piece of vellum to ground the main image. I’ve got a wedding on the 1st of July so this challenge was perfect timing.

Next up is a card for Less is More #396.

I kept this card super CAS using a frame embossing folder from Stampun Up and some die cut leaves and hibiscus I had in my stash. I decided not to add a sentiment so this card could be used for any event.

My next card is another embossed one this time for the Alphabet Challenge – E is for Embossing.

I used a 3D embossing folder by Tim Holtz. I embossed my paper piece and then decided to add some sponged colour (SU petal pink and soft sea foam) to highlight the raised parts and added a sentiment from Altenew ‘label love’.

Next up is a card for Inkspirational Challenge #188 which is a photo challenge.

I love the colours in the dress, so used them to water colour my floral image from Simon Says Stamp ‘Beautiful flowers’ with my Altenew water colours. The sentiment is from Altenew ‘Label love’.

Well, that’s probably it for me today – thanks for looking an have a great day.
