Yesterday I got got crafty with some of my favourite challenges and a couple that are new to me too.
Today I’m going to virtually craft with my friend Michelle. Pre-COVID we used to craft together monthly in person but with COVID we’ve not been able to; so we’ve decided to give it a go virtually. Usually when we get together it’s more talking than crafty so we shall see what gets made!
First up is a pair of cards for the Twofer Card Challenge #29 – Butterfly.
Twofer requires you make 2 cards with different designs for different occasions using the same stamps. I have a cool butterfly and text stamp in my stash that I inked up twice and did some ink smooshed on 1 image and marker colouring on the other. I then cut a circle from the 2nd to fit the different design requirement. Sentiments are from the Ton and are for a thinking of you and birthday themes.
Next is a card for Just Add Ink #514, which is a colour challenge.
I love these colours together and knew it would look fabulous with the new Stampin Up Many Layered Blossoms Dies. I die cut the base flowers from the Pretty Peacock cardstock, then the top flowers from the Pool Party cardstock, then I sponged behind with the Smoky Slate ink to fill in some of the flowers.
Next is a pair of cards for 2 challenges with similar themes with stripes:
I used a die from Neat & Tangled ‘stripes coverplate’ for both cards to look like zebra stripes and the tee-shirt. I then added the zebra from Katzelkraft ‘les jungles’ on one card and a vellum peony from Stampin Up ‘Prized peony’ on the other. Sentiments are from Create a Smile ‘Shit happens’ and the Ton ‘Birthday strips’.
My last card is for 6 challenges:
- TGIF Challenges #273
- Color My Heart – Colour Dare #402
- CAS Mix Up – July – Stencil Tracing
- Time Out Challenge #166 – Peaceful
- As You Like It – Summer or Autumn and Why
- Paper Fun Challenges #19 – Anything Goes With a Twist – Great Outdoors
I don’t usually combine that many challenges, but in this case they just fitted together!
I ink smooshed a background with my Kaleidacolor ‘Denim’ ink pad and created a stencil with a fishing die and sponged that stencil with my black ink. Who doesn’t find fishing peaceful and a great activity to do during my favourite season of Summer. I love getting into the outdoors and fishing at either sunrise or dusk is such a peaceful experience.
Thanks for stopping by and looking. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
