Weekend Makes

I’ve had a busy start to the weekend – Miss K had 2 netball games (lost 1, won 1), lots of cooking to get ready for the next week, laundry, watching the World Cup Netball and some crafting – I think I need to go back to work for a rest!

My first card is for the following challenges:

I went to my alcohol inks for my card and created a rainbow panel that I then lifted the ink with my sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays ‘Whole Shebang’.

I love how bright this card is.

Next up is a card for The Flower Challenge #34.

Pastels are not my usual style but when using stamps from Altenew, they work beautifully. I used ‘Garden Treasures’ and some SU inks. I fussy cut the flowers and leaves and then layered them along the edge with a bit of an overlap.

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

This next card suits the sketch challenge over at The Global Design Project #198.

I used some SU DSP – Magnolia Lane and Perenial Essence – I fussy cut a few of the magnolias and layered them behind the sentiment panel. The sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays ‘Breathe’. I added a few pearls to match the ribbon element in the sketch.

My next card is for the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #139 – J is for Joke.

I know I don’t actually have a joke on my card, but I am being a bit tongue in cheek! I printed the sentiment and knickers on my PC and then coloured using my Stampin Blends; fussy cut them out and added some pearls.

I have a friend that I love dearly that inspired this card sentiment!

Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  1. I love all the art in this post – for different reasons. The flowers look wonderful down the side of the card (great idea) and they’re beautifully coloured and I love the bold ‘Breathe’ card. Your ‘snarky’ knickers card is just brilliant, too. The card you made for our Colours of the Rainbow challenge is excellent. I’ve done the same technique with Versamark, using stamps or handwriting with a Versamark pen, but never with alcohol inks…I’d like to try that…;-)
    You’ve also taken me back to my schooldays with talk of netball, something I used to love playing when at senior school… I did notice the TV coverage of the World Cup, but not sure I could watch it now…
    Thank you so much for playing with us at Try it on Tuesday and enjoy ‘resting’ at work, lol.
    (Hope this posts this time – I’ve had to rewrite this once…)
