Hello there – I’m back a few cards for some of my favourite challenges.
First up is a card for AAA Cards #142 – OLC optional twist black and white.
I used a stamp set from Mama Elephant called ‘Cat’s Meow’ which I stamped in Catherine Pooler Designs midnight ink. Now I’d usually colour a few of the kitties, but to stay within the challenge I only coloured a few in my lighted black Stampin Blends.
Next up is a card for Freshly Made Sketches #392.
I got a new sentiment set and matching dies from Taylored Expressions called ‘Simple Strips Background’ that stamps 18 sentiments at once and then die cuts them all at the same time too – brilliant! The wine glass is from Tim Holtz ‘Wine Blueprint’ coloured with my cherry cobbler Stampin Blends. I added a touch of crystal effects to the glass to show the light reflection.
Next is a card for Time Out Challenges #137 – Nature.
For this card I used a stamp from Picket Fences called ‘Aoenium African Succulent’ which I roughly watercoloured and added to a white card base with a black and white striped panel. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions ‘Simple Strip Background’. I added a few sequins for some balance.
For this card, I sponged a panel with Stampin Up fresh fig and balmy blue inks and then die cut the floral image from the panel. I then mounted this die cut onto a white card base and added a sentiment from Taylored Expressions ‘Simple Strip Background’.
Lastly is a card for Paper Craft Crew Challenge #340 – Precious Pets.
I love cats so used a stamp from a set I got with a crafting magazine ‘Making Cards & Papercraft’ called ‘Catitude’. This stamp reminds me of my ginger boy Oscar when he stretches.
Well, that’s all for today – thanks for looking and have a great day.
