Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Dawn is our host with an all about occasions challenge this week!

I created a card for a friend of Miss K’s who’s having a 13th birthday this weekend. I used a die set from CAS-ual Fridays called ‘Huggable Critters’ and I’ve used no stamps on this card, just card stock with some sponged ink.

Isn’t he a cute kitty holding his gift card?

Get Creative Challenges – August – Anything Goes

Well hello and welcome to today’s post. It’s time for another challenge over at Get Creative Challenges where its Anything Goes with no optional twist this month.

Our sponsors for this challenge are:  

I have used an image from Drawn by Krista called ‘Sea Creatures’ that comes with 4 images; a shark, octupus, seahorse and fish. I decided to use the shark only and coloured him in with my Stampin Blends, cut him out with my Scan’n’Cut and popped him on top of a distress inked background. The sentiment I made on my PC – I recommend you read it as if you’re listening to the movie Jaws!

Challenge fun

Hello there, it’s Sunday here in Melbourne and that means I’m in my craft room while the rest of the house is sleeping in! I love the quiet time to be able to create and get myself ready for the week ahead.

My first card is for the current Freshly Made Sketches #399 challenge.

When I saw this sketch, I knew exactly the stamp set i wanted to use – Your Next Stamp’s ‘Photo Booth’. I die cut some squares from my frint panel and stamped 3 of the images on the background card, then coloured them with my Stampin Blends, added the sentiment to the top panel and mu9nted it with foam tape.

Aren’t these guys cheeky?

Next up is a card for TGIF Challenges #223, which is a beautiful colour challenge.

I used a stamp set from CAS-ual Fridays called ‘Be a Unicorn’ which lends itself beautifully to this colour combination. I stamped the unicron and then ink smooshed the colours over her, added the sentiment, a bit of gold ink to the horn, then mounted the panel on a white card base and the card was done.

Well, seems like the rest of the house is waking up so time to pack up my crafty goodies.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Just Us Girls – #499 – Word Week – Summer

Well hello and welcome to today’s post. For the month of August I am a Guest Designer over at Just Us Girls. I’m so excited as I love their challenges and can’t wait for you to see what I and the other DTs will be creating over the next 5 weeks!

So, let’s get started with this week’s challenge, which is a word challenge – SUMMER!

Now, I wasn’t feeling very summery as we’re in the middle of winter here and everything is grey and cold, but my favourite thing about summer is being able to wear my thongs (or as they’re called in the US flip flops) and walk along the beach.

I stamped the thongs from the Simon Says Stamp set called ‘Flip Flop Season’, coloured them in with my SU Granny Apple Green Stampin Blend and fussy cut them out. I then added some beach with some sand I had in my stash and a sentiment from ‘By the Seaside’ which came with a craft magazine.

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 9th August (Melbourne time) or 9pm Thursday 8th August (US Eastern Standard time) .

I’m going to enter this over at Cardz for Galz #102 – Summer Fun

Thanks for looking and have a great day.
