Hello there, it’s time for another Fusion Challenge and do we have a great sketch and inspirational photo for you!
I loved the sketch and the colours in the photo. I used a stamp from Picket Fences called ‘Aeonium African Succulent’ roughly water coloured with my distress markers in wilted violet and twisted citron. The sentiment is from the Ton ‘Easy Expressions: Birthday’.

I used a dog from the Tim Holtz ‘Crazy Dogs’ stamp set coloured with my Stampin Blends and added over a rainbow strip angled panel to match the beach towels and hammock. How cool does this little guy look?
Well, that’s it for today. I’ve got a Zoom catch up with some friends to get ready for. Thanks for looking and enjoy your day.
I played with a new die set from Stampin Up ‘Many Layered Blossoms’. I die cut the 2 large floral dies from heavy white cardstock. With the thinnest die cut I sponged a selection of rainbow inks over the die cut on a white card base. I then layered the larger die cut over that and sponged some Illuminate ink which gives it a really pretty shimmer. When I removed the die cut you can see the beautiful image.
I was able to make a 2nd card with the thin die cut which I mounted over the white die cut onto some black cardstock.
I love getting a 2 for 1 when I create.

Well, this month we have another challenge over at Christmas Craft Creations challenge blog with an optional twist to add animals
I used a reindeer stamp from Kanban ‘Reindeer and Snowflakes’. I love this set as it has 4 different reindeer images and look fabulous gold embossed. I added some green ink smooshing to my corner and mounted the panel and sentiment on some gold glitter paper.
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 8th September (Melbourne time) or 6pm 8th September (UK time).
I used a stamp set from Art Impressions called ‘Doggy Kisses’ that I’ve had in my stash but never inked up – shock horror! I inked up the sausage dog and coloured him with my Stampin Blends. I then stamped the paw print to make my background panel.
For my card, I chose the top left diagonal of birds, flowers, stencil. I used my Stampin Up ‘Free as a Bird’ stamp set which I coloured with my Stampin Blends and fussy cut out. I popped it up on a stencilled background, some ribbon and a sentiment banner.
I saw a super cool card by Marlene McDeavitt where she masked off portions of her large stamp and used the gaps for her sentiment. I loved this idea and decided to give it a go for this challenge. I used a background stamp from Catherine Pooler Designs ‘Cottage Garden’ and the sentiment is from CAS-ual Fridays ‘Shenanigans’. I added a few white dots to the flower in the bottom corner so that it didn’t look too boring!
Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for looking and have a great day.
It was my birthday on the 5th and I received a package of crafty goodness from my friend Michelle. It was her birthday back in May and I sent her a crafty package too. I challenged her for us both to use our new goodies this weekend.
First up is a super cute stamp set from PaperArtsy called ‘Eclectica3’. I love the really cute girl and boy images in this set and coloured them both with my AIs. For the girl I added a background with some Lindys Stamp Gang ink sprays over the heart embossed image from the same set.
Next is a stamp set from Uniquely Creative called ‘My Platypus’. This set has the most adorable platypus images and cute sentiments to match. I created an ink smooshed sky, coloured the platypus with my AIs and added some die cut reeds along with the sentiment and a few bees.
Next is a stamp set from Picket Fence Studios called ‘Peach & Piper’. I just love these bunny images. I stamped one pair and coloured them with my AIs. I added a bit of puffy paint to the tails for the finishing touch.
Thanks for these wonderful goodies Michelle and for being my friend.
Well it’s finally the weekend – first full week of being restriced to 5km from home, 1 visit of 1hr duration per household per day to supermarket and 1hr exercise within the 5km radius per day. Oh and compulsory mask wearing when outside. It’s frustrating but this is what we have to do to stem this second wave that Melbourne is facing. Here’s hoping that everyone follows the rules for the greater good.
Enough of my soapbox, onto the cards and challenges!
I used my Stamopin Up ‘Blossoms in Bloom’ dies for my card. I love how the layers fill in the floral images and makes for such a simple card. I cut the die cut image to fit along the card edges to match the sketch.
I used my Stampin Up ‘Timeless Trpic’ stamp set to make this card. I watercoloured the ocean and sky; then stamped the palm trees and added the die cut sentiment, some twine and a metal button that sort of looks like a shell.
I’m cat person through and through; have been since I got my first cat when I was just 2 years old who was a ginger persian called Marmalade! This cat from Katzelkraft reminds me so much of him with his sassy attitude. I made the little face mask to match the sentiment rfom Stampin Up and to mee this signifies that there will be happier days ahead if we all follow the rules!
That’s it for today, thanks for stopping by and looking.
