Fusion: Thankful

Hello there, it’s time for another Fusion Challenge and do we have a great sketch and inspirational photo for you!

WWC #297 – Helen’s Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Helen is our host with an all about occasions challenge this week!

Wen I saw Heidi Weaver’s card about 10 challenges ago, I knew I had to buy the ‘Masked Mice’ stamp set from Stampendous. It’s compulsory for us to wear masks here in Victoria Australia and I’m so appreciative of the 99% of people who are doing the right thing to help keep us safe from COVID-19. I also recently bought some slim line dies which I thought they and the sentiment were a perfcet match.

Cup Day Crafting

It’s a public holiday here in Melbourne all for a horse race – it’s Melbourne Cup Day – the race that stops a nation!

For me,it’s an opportunity toget my craft on.

First up is a card for Just Add Ink #529.

I did a bit of masking and sponging with the colours. The Magenta Madness and Misty Moonlight blend so beautifully together. I used a Simon Says Stamp ‘Delicate Flowers’ over the top of the sponged panel and mounted it on top of some shiny silver paper.

Next is a card for the Christmas Card Throwdown #40.

I bought some adorable rectangle tins from Stamp Up and decided to make a folded card to go inside.

The inside.
The folded card.

Lastly is a card for AAA Cards #177.

Imade a very simple card using a snowflake die (they look like stars right?) and some shimmery glitter paper behind it.

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

A pinch and a punch for the 1st of the month

I can’t believe it’s November all ready – this year has flown by. Miss K is in the middle of a reading frenzy which leaves me with time to craft!

First is a card for:

Let’s Squash It is a new challenge all about embossing folders and encouraging us to get them out- I have about 55 in my ‘collection’ so I’m thankful for the inspiration. I used a Stampin Up stamp set ‘Geared Up Garage’ and the metal plate embossing folder. I thought the sketch worked beautifully with this folder.

Next is a card for the Alphabet Challenge – O is for old folk!

I have a girlfriend that I have known for 50 years and interpreted this challenge in a slightly different way (old friendship not old age!) – I decided to make a card for her birthday to recognise this fact. I used the ‘Senior Years’ stamp set from Stampin Up.

Next is a card for:

I created an alcohol ink background and then added a die cut sentiment from Uniquely Creative cut from some gold glitter paper.

Well, that’s it for today, thanks for stopping by. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
