International Women’s Day Crafting

We happen to have a long weekend for Labour Day coinciding with International Women’s Day, so I had some extra time to craft as there is no netball this weekend.

First up is a card for Seize the Birthday #184 – sentiment as focal image.

I made an AI background with some pinks, purples and a blue then added a die cut sentiment from Kaisercraft.

Next is a card for the Global Design Project #230.

This card was quick to create. I die cut a floral image and mounted it behind a circle and added a sentiment from the Ton and my card was done!

Next up is a card for Freshly Made Sketches #425.

I used the Stampin Up ‘Poppy Moments’ dies with some felt and a sentiment from the Ton. The felt is very delicate so I used some double sided tape before I cut it.

Next is a card for Just Add Ink #495 – Just add a rainbow.

I used the Flowering Foils DSP from Stampin Up and sponged a rainbow of Altenew colours over it. I then added a die cut silver foil shape and sentiment from MFT ‘Birthday Greetings’ was silver heat embossed onto black card stock for that pop and the card was done.

Lastly is a card for the Alphabet Challenge – X for x-tra embellishment.

I kept this card fairly muted and used Stampin up Sahara Sand and Pink Pirouette papers, inks and ribbon. I embossed a card panel and then lightly sponged the raised images for depth. I punched a variety of flowers and added them randomly over the sentiment panel with some pearls for their centers and a bit of ribbon to ground these elements and I was done.

Well that’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by for a look and I really appreciate any comments you leave me. Have a great day.
