4 cards 11 challenges – what?

Sometimes the stars align and when I’m creating my cards they fit a number of challenges – well this weekend, I made 4 cards that fit 11 challenges!

First up, is a card for :

I’ve had my alcohol lift ink for a while but haven’t really been successful when using it. This time I watched a few of the videos on the CAS Mix Up blog and will be using this technique more often.

Next is a card for:

Anyone who’s followed past posts will know I love a bit of sass on my cards, so I couldn’t resist making fun of this little birdie! This sure makes me smile.

Next up is a card for:

I went with the theme of 3. I used 3 birds, 3 big flowers and 3 leaf additions coloured up in petal pink, soft sea foam and flirty flamingo Stampin Blends.

My last card is for:

I was on a roll with my AIs and tried the lift technique again but with a stencil rather than a stamp this time. The lift pad wasn’t working so well, so I used the lift re-inker and dabbed drops onto the panel in the stencil gaps and then lifted the ink off. I added a bit of gold thread for that party glitz feel. Thanks for the layout inspiration Kreative Kristie.

Well that’s it for today – thanks for looking and have a great day.

  1. OMG – that’s awesome to get so many challenges from just the 4 cards. And what stunners too! Love your bird and both the AI ink lift cards are incredible. It really does work well with the darker colours. Your bird card is simply so pretty in the pastel colours. Well done Tristan on a good days work!

  9. Four awesome cards Tristan! Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up with your amazing lifted stamp image with your first card. The design is so pretty in the circle aperture. The black sentiment banner adds lots of contrast. Great work! Your second lift through the stencil turned out AMAZING. The colours are so deep and saturated. Your stencil lift really shows up beautifully. LOVE the layout and design of this card! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Stencil!
