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.

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.

  2. Looks like such a fun day creating Tristan. I love how you’ve created a northern lights style background for your big bloom. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.


  3. Your lovely blended panel is a great way to highlight the flowers in your focal image. Looks like a very productive day of stamping. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.
