Fusion: Thank You

Hello there, it’s time for another Fusion Challenge and do we have a great sketch and inspirational photo for you!

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

I think I might mail this to my daughter, to remind her that she’s beautiful – inside and out.

Sunday Funday

Another weekend in ISO means another weekend of crafting and playing with some challenges.

First up is a card for Cardz 4 Guys #242 – On, in or by the sea.

I decided to use a Stampin Up set called ‘Sailing Home’ and a world embossing folder. I inked up the inside of my embossing folder and then ran it through my Big Shot to impress the ink on my paper. I love this effect. I then stamped and cut out a few of my sailing images and mounted over some blue and white twine.

Next is a card for 3 challenges:

For my card I die cut 3 squares from the bottom of a white card panel and mounted it over a green base, then added a sentiment and a water coloured parrot that I had pre-coloured and cutout in my stash.

Next is a card for CASology #366 which is all about zodiacs.

Again I went to my stash as I know I had a cute little lion thanks to my last crafty session with my friend Michelle. I coloured him in and cut him out and popped him inside a sentiment circle and Altenew die and I was done!

Lastly a card for CAS Christmas – April – Christmas Song.

I used a super cute stamp set from Hello Bluebird ‘Joyful mouse’, my Stampin Blends and some puffy paint.

Well that’s it for today. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers – U is for Upcycle

Today, I’m over on the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers blog as their guest designer as I was crowned Queen of their B is for Booze challenge, so I get to play along this week with their U is for Upcycle challenge.

When Chelle first told me the theme, I must admit I had a bit of a freak out about what I could make, so I did a bit of googling of the word and came away with a few ideas for inspiration.

I decided to poke some fun at my hubby using a Unity Stamp Co stamp called ‘Sawyer Guy’ which I water coloured and then added a sentiment I created on my PC.

Going cheap – LOL!

I’m pretty pleased with how this card worked out. Why don’t you come join in the fun; check out the blog for all the other amazing creations from the SOSS designers.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Fusion: Let us remember

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 both the sketch and photo for my card. I used a stamp set from Unity Stamp Co called ‘Donna poppies’. I stamped the small outline flower over the card base and then stamped one with red, fussy cut it out and popped it up on the sentiment.

Come join in the fun and make a card based on the sketch, inspiration photo or both!

WWC#267 – Karen’s Challenge: Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Karen is our host with masculine challenge this week!

I created a rather simple card using Stampin Up ‘All Geared Up’ stamps and dies. I coloured the car with my Stampin Blends and added a bit of crystal effects for the windscreen, die cut the gears from silver cardstock and popped it all onto a DSP panel and black card base.
