Daylight Savings Crafting

Well daylight savings has started – yay – so I can pretend that I slept in today! Nah, I love daylight savings, I enjoy getting home from work and it’s still light and I can sit outside and enjoy the smell of the jasmine on the fence.

Miss K is away camping with a friend so I can craft without feeling guilty about not spending time with her!

Today as per usual I’m playing along with a few challenges. First up is The Sisterhood of Crafters – Friend(ship).

I created a sunny looking alcohol ink background, I used a sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays ‘Sassy Smiles’ and added a few flower sequins.

I know exactly which friend this is going to!

Next up is a card for a new to me challenge – Always Fun Challenge #130 – Anything Goes.

I made a card for a guy with a stenciled background in SU grey granite, a digital SU motorcross image and a sentiment from Stampers Anonymous ‘Handwritten Thoughts’ that seemed fitting.

Next is a card for The Card Concept #120.

I was inspired by the blue and white striped jug and flowers. I used an old SU stripe background stamp inked up in CP Juniper Mist and the flower is from Altenew ‘Wallpaper Art’ coloured with my Stampin Blends.

Next is a card for the current Alphabet Challenge Blog – N is for Naughty.

I used a stamp set from The Ton called ‘Born Classy’ and a Unity Stamps sentiment that seemed a perfect match.

Next card is for 2 challenges: Just Add Ink #477 and Cardz for Galz #106 – Pretty bows.

I loved this sketch and decided to make a Christmas card with a bow die, some SU DSP and a bit of Wink of Stella for that shimmer. How simple is that?

My last card is for the Just Us Girls #508 – DSP challenge.

I used some SU Magnolia Lane DSP and coloured the flowers red to make them look like poinsettias. The sentiment is a digital one from The Ton.

well that’s it for now. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

  1. Amazing Tristan. Despite losing an hour, you have been busy. I too, love Daylight Saving time. A bit darker for a few weeks in the mornings but loving the longer daylight in the evenings. All you cards today are so beautiful.
