Weekend fun

This weekend I didn’t get many cards made but I had lots of fun crafting with my friend Michelle from Seashell Creates. We try t0 catch up once a month and this time I went down to her place and used all her stamps.

Here’s some of the pieces I made, that I’ll have to colour and cut out but I’ll have lots of goodies ready for card making next weekend.

I do have one card to share for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge #351 .

I used the Stampin Up set called “Beautiful Friendship’ stamp inked up in some Autumn colours.

Well, this was a short and sweet post. Thanks for stopping by and looking . Enjoy the rest of your day.

Ink Smooshing

Well hello there and welcome to the new week.

Today I’m playing with the current CAS Mix Up Challenge which is all about creating with ‘inchies’.

I must admit I haven’t played much with this style of crafting but found it to be a fab idea and you can create many varied looks. For my card a created an ink smooshed background with my Kaleidacolour ink pad ‘Melon Melody’ which I then stamped a poppy image and die cut a film strip frame to create the ‘inchies’. I popped up the frame to create dimension and added the sentiment and my card was done.

Next is my card for the current Flower Challenge #36 which is an anything goes theme.

I created another ink smooshed background with my Kaleidacolor ink pad ‘Desert heat’ and then stamped my floral image across the bottom left corner. I added some black and white twine and a few Nuvo droplets and mounted it all on a white card base.

Well, that’s it for today – short and sharp! Thanks for looking and have a great day.

WWC #238 – Tristan’s ‘All About Occasions’ Challenge

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and I’m the host this week with an All About Occasions challenge!

I created a background panel with my Kaleidacolor ‘denim’ ink pad – I smooshed it onto my craft mat and added water before applying my cardstock. I then used an old digital sentiment from Stampin Up and a few sequins and my card was done.

Come join in the fun and make a card for any occasion. Check out the projects that the other artists at Watercooler Wednesday Challenges have created, take the challenge and link your creation to the challenge post. We’d love to have you join us.  You have until Tuesday, 17th September at 10:00 Melbourne Time or Monday 16th September 5pm US Mountain Time to link up your project.

Thanks for looking and have a great day.

Monday Funday

Hello and welcome to my Monday Funday post. If you’ve been following me, you’ll now you know the drill that I love to play with challenges and today is no exception!

First up is a card for 2 challenges:

I used a stamp set from Stampin Up called ‘ Picked for you’ inked up in SU inks Lucky Limeade, Certainly Celery and Lemon Lime Twist.

I think every teacher needs a bit of appreciation for all that they do!

Next is a card for AAA Cards #148.

I turned the sketch on it’s side and created a cloudy background for my Katzelkraft giraffe who has a bit of a boo boo!

The similarity to Ishani’s card is unintended as I don’t look at DT cards till I’m done. All I say is ‘great minds!”

Next is a card for another 2 challenges:

I used an old Stampin Up digital stamp for my focal sentiment and a wine glass and bottle from a set from an old craft magazine. I die cut the sentiment and popped it up to give some dimension to the card.

Lastly is a card for 2 more challenges:

I create an ink smooshed background with my Kaleidacolor ‘Caribbean sea’ ink pad. I then lifted some of the background with a baby wipe through a harlequin stencil. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp ‘Big Birthday Wishes’.

Well, that’s it for today. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

You’re so tweet!

Can you see me happy dancing as netball has been cancelled today, so I can stay home and craft? It’s the small things right?!

First is a card for The Library Challenge #40.

I was inspired by the bird on the cover of this book and had some pre-stamped and cut out images from the last time I visited my friend Michelle, that all I had to do was colour them in and add them to a card base.

Next is a birthday card for a guy who loves beer. I’m entering this over at Cardz4Guyz #227 – Celebrate challenge.

I used a beer stamp from Unity Stamps which I coloured with my Stampin Blends and then added some puffy paint to look like the beer foam.

My third card is for challenges over at Freshly Made Sketches #401 and Seize the Birthday #173 – square card.

I went super CAS with my card, sponging a circle in Stampin Up Smoky Slate ink, a sentiment from MFT popped up over some vellum leaves and a bit of gold thread.

Well that’s it for today, thanks for looking and have a great day.
