Rainy Saturday Crafting

Well it’s been raining here – second day actually – but the gardens are really appreciative and so am I as I can get my craft on. Hold on as this is going to be a loooooong post!

First card is for Let’s Squash It #4 – Use an embossing folder & an animal.

I used a small rectable frame and the Hey Chick stamp set from Stampin Up on my card. Quick and simple.

Next is a card for:

I used the adorable Hello Bluebird ‘Joyful Mouse’ for my card. I coloured and fussy cut out the mouse in the stocking and then hung him from the sentiment.

My next card is for:

I loved the sketch and decided to keep my card monochrome. I die cut the sleigh bells from silver foil cardstock and added the setiment from Stampin Up ‘Curvy Christmas.

Next is a card for:

I used a stencil from Tim Holtz ‘Stripes, an image from ‘Crazy Cats’ and sentiment from Simon Says Stamp ‘Celebrate You’.

Next is a card for:

For my card I used the adorable pair of bunnies from Picket Fences ‘Peach & Pipper’ with a sentiment from CAS-ual Fridays ‘Cupid’s Arrow’.

Next is a card for Festive Friday #76 – Chinese New Year.

I included the dragon, red and gold from the list and used the dragon and sentiment from Uniquely Creative ‘Lucky you’ stamp set.

Next is a card for Shopping our Stash #437 – I Need a Cup of Coffee.

I used a digi stamp set printed on 3 types of DSP and paper pieced my coffee cup together. I added them to an ink smooshed background.

Next is a card for:

I recently bought the Stampin Up ‘Sweet Ice Cream’ stamp set and matching DSP; and thought it would be a good match for the colours and sketch.

Lastly is a card for:

I used the Stampin Up ‘Celebrate Sunflowers’ stamp set and matching dies for my card. I followed the right hand vertical of white-stitching-die cut.

Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for perservering with this extra long post. Seems like I’ve got by grooze back!
