Christmas Craft Creations – April – Use a stamp (no digis)

Well, this month we have another challenge over at Christmas Craft Creations challenge blog with an optional twist to stamp without any digis.

I used a cute set from Hello Bluebird called ‘Joyful Mouse’. I stamped the 3 mice, some hats, candy canes, holly and the sentiment than coloured them with my Stampin Blends. I fussy cut the mice out and popped them up on a film strip frame.

I think I’ll be using this set a whole lot more.

Come join in our fun and add to your Christmas card stash. Visit the challenge blog to check out the inspiration the other CCCettes have made. Link up your card by 3am 6th May (Melbourne time) or 6pm 5th May (UK time).

I’m also entering this card over at CAS Christmas – April – Christmas Song .

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Monday Makes

So I have started my Easter shutdown leave. Those of us not considered essential at work have been asked to take 2 weeks Easter leave and as we can’t go anywhere, I am having a holiday in my craft room. I plan on making lots of cards and I think I might also learn some new software that might benefit me at work. Now onto the cards!

First up is a card for:

I played around with a funky stamp set from The Workshop of Karine called ‘Urban Jungle Boy’, which has the coolest zoo animals all dressed up. I stamped and coloured the rhino with my Stampin Blends, added a bit of ink smooshing and some geometric shapes along with a cut up sentiment from The Ton and mounted it all on a white card base and the card was done.

Next up is a card for TGIF Challenges #258 – Rainbow colour challenge.

I decided to use some rainbow paper scraps behind a die cut circle with a popped up sentiment for my card. Super simple yet really effective.

Lastly is a card for:

I decided to use a stamp set from PTI called ‘Feather Finery’ white heat embossed and then some ink smooshing using my Kaleidacolour ‘Berry blaze’ ink pad.

Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by; stay safe and healthy.

Fusion: Gnomes

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 the photo. I used a Simon Says Stamp gnome die and some Stampin Up DSP for my card. I kept it pretty simple and just changed up the direction and matching of the DSP.

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