4 very different cards

Today, I’m playing with some of my new goodies I bought at the Paperific craft show on Friday.

First up a card for Christmas Kickstart Challenge – canine companions and Little Red Wagon #511 – Tag it!

I used the Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs stamp set for my card – I love these cheeky dogs. I added some puffy paint to the hat and created the sentiment on my laptop.

Next is another Christmas card, this time for ABC Christmas Challenge. I chose R for reindeer. My stamp is from Woodware Craft Collection called ‘reindeer bells’ which I coloured with my Stampin Blends.

Next is a card for The Flower Challenge #35 – favourite flower.

At the moment, I’m loving this multi-layer stencil from Altenew which I sponged with my Catherine Poolers Design inks.

Lastly is a card for Happy Little Stampers – Watercolour Challenge – Ocean and CASology #350- Water.

I created a watercoloured background with my Kaleidacolor ink pad ‘Denim’ and a digital surfer image. I love how this background came out.

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

Just Us Girls – #502 – Photo Inspiration

Well hello and welcome to week 4 0f my Guest Designer roll over at Just Us Girls. This week we have a photo inspiration for you.

Here’s a close up for you. Isn’t this a pretty table setting?

I was inspired by the cup and saucer plus the colours of the flowers for my card. I had a tea cup and saucer already coloured and cut out in my stash (I think this was a stamp set from my friend Jo). I added a sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays set ‘Coffee Talk’ that sums up how I feel once I’ve had my morning cuppa!

Check out the Just Us Girls challenge blog for links to the other fabulous projects from the DT and come join in our fun and share your project by 11am Friday 30th August (Melbourne time) or 9pm Thursday 29th August (US Eastern Standard time) .

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Mid-week crafting

It’s a bit unusual for me to get crafty mid-week but I had some spare time last night.

First up is a card for The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers #141

For this card I used a stamp from Katzelkraft, which I watercoloured in and added to a card front with my PC generated sentiment. I also added a sentiment for the inside of the card (to slightly softed to blow!)

Next up is a card for Happy Little Stampers – Anything Goes with Dies – August

I used the Stampin Up Frosted Frames dies to create this wreath from green glitter paper. Nice and easy with a banner across the middle and a si=oft white bow.

Next is a card for TGIF Challenge #225.

I stamped and embossed my Concord & 9th floral image on black cardstock. I then selectively coloured some of the petals and leaves with white chalk and then used pink, blue and yellow inks over the top for a really subtle look using the inspiration photo colours.

Lastly is a card for CAS Christmas – August – Glitter.

I created an alcohol ink background panel with a bit of gold flakes and a gold embossed sentiment over the circle feature.

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

Just Us Girls – #501 – Colour Week

Well hello and welcome to week 3 0f my Guest Designer roll over at Just Us Girls. This week we have a colour challenge for you – it’s all about hot pink, red and grey.

I’ve been having fun lately with sponging and stencils, so thought this technique was good for this colour challenge. I used my Altenew layered dahlia stencil set with Catherine Pooler Designs ink in Rose Petals and Rouge on a grey card panel. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions ‘Simply Strips’. As you can see, my pink and red are from the darker more muted spectrum, but I do like the look on the grey base.

Check out the Just Us Girls challenge blog for links to the other fabulous projects from the DT and come join in our fun and share your project by 11am Friday 23rd August(Melbourne time) or 9pm Thursday 22nd August (US Eastern Standard time) .

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Cards, cards and more cards!

It’s the weekend again and I’ve got some time to get crafty while Miss K is having a sleep over at a friend’s place.

First up is a card for 2 challenges:

For this card I used Stampin Up products – stamp set ‘Beautiful Friendship’, inks Grapefruit Grove, Coastal Cabana and Basic Black, the Subtle embossing folder and some Coastal Cabana ribbon. I love this EF and will be using it a lot more.

Next up is a card for another 3 challenges:

Again I used Stampin Up products – stamp set ‘Butterfly Wishes’; inks in Fresh Fig, Rioch Razzleberry, Granny Apple Green, Crumb Cake and Basic Black. I added a few diamantes for a little bit of bling. The large butterflies are punched out and popped up for some dimension.

Lastly is a card for 2 challenges:

This time I used a Stampin Up Memories & More kit ‘Come Sail Away’ for this card. I chose a variety of papers, one of the sentiments and added a charm and this card was done!

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