Weekend Makes

I had a chance to play along with some of my favourite challenges this weekend before we head out for our Father’s Day celebrations.

First up – Fusion Challenges – Floral Wall. and Paper Craft Crew Challenges #349.

I loved the sketch and decided to use the butterflies from the Stampin Up ‘Butterfly Wishes’ stamp set. I used some Catherine Pooler Design inks, punched them out and roughly layered on my white card base.

Next, Freshly Made Sketches #400 – what a fabulous milestone.

I used a new die from Paper Roses for the center of my panel (over a sponged background) and a sentiment from Taylored Expressions.

Next up, CAS Colours & Sketches #336 and Global Design Project #204.

I was inspired by the three main flowers on Kerstin’s card and decided to place my flowers in the position of the stars from the sketch. I used a set from Simon Says Stamp called ‘Delicate Flowers’ which I coloured with my Stampin Blends and cut out on my Scan’n’Cut.

Lastly is a card for TGIF Challenges #227.

I created an alcohol ink background on some transparent Yupo which really makes the colours pop when overlaid on a white card base. I used a sentiment form Simon Says Stamp ‘Big Birthday Wishes’ which I heat embossed in silver embossing powder.

Well, that’s it for today – off for Father’s Day lunch. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for stopping by.

  1. A great weekends crafting Tristan. That alcohol background is stunning. Just so incredible. Your other three cards are just as stunning too. Those butterflies are beautiful and as I love purple, that flower is perfect. And your die cut card is inspiring.
