Monday Mindfulness

Today I decided to do a bit of crafting before work and during my lunch break to make sure I switch off from the many Zoom meetings that I have to attend.

First up is a card for:

I used a floral embossing folder and decided to colour a few of the flowers with my navy alcohol markers. I stamped a sentiment from the Ton and added some pearls to fill some of the gaps.

I love the look of the navy flowers on the cream vellum.

Next is a card for:

I have a new die that that opens in a hexagon pattern to reveal the centre. I die cut some navy cardstock; then some DSP with the reveal die (this gave me my layers); than added a watercoloured unicorn behind it and a birthday sentiment and my card was done.

Lastly is a card for a new to me challenge – Send a Smile 4 Kids – Cards 4 Teen and Tweens OR Anything Goes 4 Kids.

I created an ink smooshed background using my Kaleidacolor ‘Denim’ ink pad and added a die cut of a mountain climber with a sentiment from Avery Elle ‘Dude’ and Stampin Up ‘Pedal to the Metal’.

I really love how this card turned out.

Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of your day.

  2. I am impressed at how creative you can be after Zooming! All three cards are great, and I’m with you on how well that last one turned out. But officially, I’m here to thank you for joining us at Happy Little Stampers for the Watercolour Challenge! That reveal die is so fun! And reveals the cutest little unicorn.

  5. Beautiful card, Im glad I came to have a look as you added the wrong image at our blog for the challenge and I wondered why a unicorn when it was a flower challenge. The navy flowers on the cream vellum look stunning. Thank you so much for joining us at The Flower Challenge and we hope to see you there again soon. Aileen DesignTeam

  7. Good idea to relax by card-making – those online meetings can be so draining! – and what a great lot of cards you’ve made. I love the way your card for the ‘Layered’ challenge folds out – cute cow, great card. Thanks for joining The Library.
