I had some floral images ready to colour in my stash from my last visit to my friend Michelle’s house, so this card didn’t take long at all to pull together. I water coloured the flower and leaves and then fussy cut them out, added a sentiment banner and mounted them onto some DSP.
Well, I have another 22 cards to be made, so I’d better get back to it.
Thanks for looking, enjoy the rest of your weekend and stay safe and well.
I finally got to play with my The Ton ‘Transformation’ stamp set. I made an alcohol ink background and then gold embossed the butterfly and fussy cut it out, mounted it on a white card base with a few sequins.

This post is brought to you by my daughter Miss K (with a bit of formatting help by me).
Hi everyone. I’m home from school due to COVID-19 shutdown and am bored – LOL. I asked mum if there were any challenges she had that I could play along with. She gave me a list and I like the Just Us Girls #528 colour challenge the best.
I really liked these colours and thought I’d create a scene with my pencils, some cardstock and a sentiment mum had already printed.
I hope you like by card and I think I’ll be doing more while I can’t go to school.
I finally had a bit of time to myself after all the birthday activities for Miss K , and keeping in mind social distancing. It was such a tough thing for Miss K to have to go through as she enters her teenager hood and I’ve made some pretty big promises to make it up to her when we are all clear in the future.
I was doing some colouring of some images that I stamped ages ago when I last caught up with my friend Michelle and came across these adorable unicorns (sorry can’t remember who makes them) and knew they were perfect for these 2 challenges.
Well, that’s it for today. Off to get ready for school and non-essential services shutdown from Tuesday. It’s just got very real here. Keep safe and healthy. Thanks for looking.
Hello there, it’s time for another Fusion Challenge and do we have a great sketch and inspirational photo for you!
I was inspired by the cake photo and with my daughter’s birthday in 2 days time, it was a perfect reason for me to make a birthday card using a new stamp set from Stampin Up called ‘Birthday Goodness’. I stamped the donut cake image and coloured it with my Stampin Blends and popped it up on an angled panel and hid a few donuts under the edge.
Come join in the fun and make a card based on the sketch, inspiration photo or both! Check out the projects that the other artists at Fusion have created, take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us. You have until Wednesday, 1st April at 7pm Melbourne Time or Tuesday 31st March 12pm US Pacific Time to link up your project.
I decided to use a new stamp set from Stampin Up ‘Pedal to the metal’ for my card. I created a mountain scene and added my coloured and cut out buggy and sentiment on top.
Come join in the fun and make a masculine card. Check out the projects that the other artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges have created, take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us.

I’ve decided to stay in my craft room this weekend and avoid the news and people. I’m finding it stressful hearing constantly about COVID-19, its spread and the panic runs on the supermarkets for everyday pantry items.
It looks like my daughter’s school will close for 4 weeks (2 of them being the usual holiday break) and all events of more than 500 people have been banned. These are wise steps to try to slow the spread of the virus but it certainly is putting pressure on families, medical and essential services. Hopefully sanity will soon start to prevail and people will stop being selfish and start to care for their fellow humans.
One of my favourite techniques is ink smooshing, which I used for the background of this card. I stamped a few of the images from the Stampin Up ‘Gangs all Meer’ set and then coloured them in to look like silhouettes. I was inspired by a card made by my friend Kath, I used the same images but changed up the colour, sentiment and mounting.
I love these 4 challenges have aligned for this card. I created an AI green background which was inspired by the Card Concept green leaves. I then punched 3 butterflies from the panel which meets the 3 things from CTS and LRW and the things that flutter and fly in GDP. I added 3 embossed stripes down the side of the card base for the butterflies to hover over and the sentiment from MFT ‘Butterflies’ and the card was done!
Can I just say that I have so much fun playing with their challenges, as I love a chance to get my snark on. This time I have used stamps from Unity Stamp Co. called ‘Drink & cuss’ and ‘No Regrets’. I stamped the lady onto a die cut card piece, the sentiment onto a cut out banner and added some Stampin Up DSP and sequins for balance and interest and my card was done. I know exactly which friend of mine will be getting this for her birthday!
I created an ink smooshed background in some oranges and reds. I then die cut the woman’s face and sentiment from black cardstock. I attached the die cut panel on top of my ink smooshed panel and mounted both onto a white card base and my card was done.
Well that’s it for this weekend. Thanks for stopping by and looking. Enjoy the rest of your day.
