1 Card 5 Challenges!

Well it’s Mother’s Day here in Melbourne and I ask for some time to get crafty before we went to my MIL’s for lunch.

I have a new stamp set from Colorado Craft Company ‘Snuggles’ that I’ve been wanting to use and was lucky enough to find a number of challenges that I thought the adorable mummy and baby rabbit would fit.

I coloured the mummy and baby rabbit with my Spectrum Noir tri-colour markers and then fussy cut them out. I popped them up on a die cut panel and then added my ribbon behind in a zig zag way (which I love to do as it doesn’t involve tying bows which I’m terrible at!) and I then added them all to a Crumb Cake card base. This sentiment certainly expresses how I’ve always felt about my daughter, Miss K.

Well, thanks for stopping by for a look. Enjoy the rest of the day.

I love how blending 3 colours actuall ends up giving you 6! I used Stampin Up inks in Costal Cabana, Megenta Madness and Bumbleebee along with some True Love DSP fussy cut out. I love spring, all the flowers coming out and trees getting their leaves back – not too hot but the sun is out.

Fusion: Mother’s Day

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

I was inspired by the sketch which I turned on its side. I used 2 Stampin Up sets ‘Dragonfly Garden’ for the dragonfly and ‘Celebrate Sunflowers’ for my sentiment. My hubby will use this for his mother as she should certainly be celebrated with what she had to manage in 2020!

Waterfall Card

I love making interactive cards and this one was no exception.

I was inspired by the following challenge themes:

I used some super cute DSP from Stampin Up called ‘Playful Pets’ and some watercoloured and fussy cut dogs from Katzelkraft.

The card front showing the waterfall element closed.

I loved making this card and can see myself making a lot more of them. Thanks for stopping by for a look. Enjoy the rest of your week.
