Weekend Crafting

Can’t believe that we’re nearing the end of July – where has the year gone? With the resurgence of COVID-19 we’re back in ISO so nothing better to do than craft.

First up is a card for The Flower Challenge #46 – Summer/Winter.

I decided to follow the winter aspect and went with a sponged panel in SU Pool Party ink which feels cool and wintery to me. I added a SU stamp ‘Beautifully braided’ over the panel then did a little bit of thin mounting and my card was done.

Next is a card for Less is More #424 – Christmas in July.

I stamped my image along the edge, coloured with my Stampin Blends, then fussy cut around the image and mounted it over a bit of glittery white cardstock. I decided not to include a sentiment so that the focus remains on the characters.

Next is a card for TGIF Challenges #274 – Paper Scraps.

I love using paper scraps and cut up some SU DSP from the Prized Peony suite. I also used the die set to make the flower from a water coloured piece of card in Petal Pink ink.

Next is a card for:

My favourite food during summer is an ice-cream. I used the SU ‘Cool treats’ stamp set and coloured in the cute cone images and added them to a popped up sentiment banner with a little bit of gold thread behind.

Next is a card for Freshly Made Sketches #445 and Dies R Us #149 – Christmas in July.

I created an alcohol ink background with some gold flakes which I placed behind a circle die cut and added my sentiment over the top with a few die cut leaves from SU Forever Fern.

Well that’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
