Long Weekend Crafting

We have a 3 day long weekend this week for the Queen’s Birthday so I’m getting in some craft while the hubs and daughter do some geocaching.

First up is a card for The Male Room challenge #112.

I’m not sure where this stamp set is from, I found it at my local Savers store. I inked up one of the a spinner images (this counts as gaming right?!) and coloured it and the sentiment with some rainbow Stampin Blends. I did some shadow stamping and then die cut a rounded edge on the panel and mounted them both on a white card base.

A fun kid card.

Next up is a card for the Fusion Challenge – rainbow birds.

I used the ‘Free as a bird’ from Stampin Up as it has super cute birds in it. I heat embossed it to set the image before using my Altenew water colours pallet to colour them in. Each bird is just that little bit different in colour. I then fussy cut them out and mounted them to my card front. I then used the stitched dies to die cut a window from another piece and attached that over the top with a sentiment from the SU set ‘Itty bitty birthdays’.

I’m loving this stamp set atm.

Next is a card for the Library Challenge #34 – The Art of Stripes.

I was inspired by the ‘stripes’ in the title and decided to make another card for my masculine card stash. I used a stamp set from SU called ‘Sailing home’ with the matching DSP ‘Come sail away’ inked up in Night of Navy. I used the matching dies to cut the lighthouse, boat and sentiment out and layered them up on the DSP panels and the card was done. Using the co-ordinating products made this card a breeze!

I’m really happy with how this card worked out.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
