I’ve been feeling down this past week with everything that is going on with COVID-19 and our lockdown 6.0. The weather is starting to turn to Spring which means more and more people are moving around when they should be staying home following the lockdown rules, possibly jeapordising our way out.
To get me out of my funk, I went through my stash of cards and started writing ‘thinking of you’ cards to my friends and making some care packs.
I also decided to have a go at some challenges to make cards to replenish my stash.
First up is a card for:
- Happy Little Stampers- Stencil Challenge – ATG
- Color Hues #24 – Turquoise and Coral
- CAS Mix Up – August – Stamping through a Stencil
For this card I used a stencil from Studio Katia ‘Birthday Balloons’ and I sponged it with SU Calypso Coral ink. I then stamped the CAS-ual Fridays ‘Flowery’ stamp in black through the stencil and popped the panel onto a piece of SU Tempting Turquiose card stock. I finished it off with a sentiment from Uniquely Creative and a little twine bow.
Next is a card for:
I thought these two sketches were very similar in style and decided to create a card that fitted both. I used a series of retired SU DSPs cut at differing angles and mounted to a black card base. I then added some white twine and a sentiment from Uniquely Creative.
My next card is for:
I stamped and coloured the SU ‘Beautiful Bauble’ with three of my SU red markers and then fussy cut it out and popped up onto my card base. I added a little bit of gold and a black ribbon for my free element.
My last card is for:
- AUD Sentiments #281 – ATG & a Sentiment
- Alphabet Challange – J is for just one word
- Freshly Made Sketches #499
I used the SU stitched triangle dies to die cut some SU True Love DSP which I then coloured with my Stampin Blends in Polished Pink and Granny Apple Green. I then stamped two of the birthday sentiments from the SU ‘Biggest Wishes’ stamp set in Polished Pink and Momento Black.
Well, making these cards has certainly cheered me up. Now to get my other cards into the mail.
Thanks for stopping by for a look. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and stay safe.
