Getting ready for the work week

Well it’s Sunday here in Melbourne, the day is grey and uninviting; my friend who was visiting has gone home so I’m having a bit of a play in my craft room. It’s been super busy these past few weeks at work, so I’m getting ready for the new work week by resetting my mind with a bit of craft time.

I’ve made 3 cards today; the first one for:

I clear heart embossed the ‘Faithful letter’ background stamp from Unity Stamp co and then added Stampin Up inks in Tempting Turquoise, Berry Burst (I didn’t have a purple to match the CTD image) and Granny Apple Green over the Altenew ‘Layered dahlia’ stencil. I die cut the panel out with my stitched rectangle die (I’m not a sewer so this is my favourite way to add subtle stitching to a card).

Next is a card for AAA Cards #193 – Sketch opt twist critters.

I created a textured brick wall panel with some paste coloured with SU Old Olive ink, then added a watercoloured and fussy cut bird from the Stamping Bella ‘Oddball birds’ and a sentiment from Uniquely Creative.

Lastly is a card for:

I used the tree from the Catherine Pooler Designs ‘Festive Trimmings’ stamp set. I coloured it in with my Stampin Markers using my MISTI and then made a stencil using some alphabet dies to make the MC monogram which I traced over my tree.

That’s about for today; thanks for stopping by for a look. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  2. Beautifully made cards Tristan. Crafting on a grey day is the perfect thing to do and yes, Sunday crafting does set you up for the work week. I love the gorgeous texture on your bird card. The colouring of the paste is just perfect. Your other two are just as awesome too.
