Get Creative Challenges #113 – Red, White & Blue

Well hello and welcome to today’s post. It’s time for another challenge over at Get Creative Challenges where its Anything Goes with an optional twist to add red, white and blue to your card.

When I think of red, white and blue, I think of flags and sailing so I reached for my Stampin Up ‘Let’s Set Sail’ stamp set and matching punch for my card. I embossed the background panel to look like waves, added some SU DSP from ‘Waves of the Ocean’ then added my stamped and punched out boat with some dimensionals and twine.

Check out the Get Creative Challenge blog for details on the sponsor prizes and links to the other fabulous projects from the DT and come join in our fun and share your anything goes project by 1pm Monday 1st August (Melbourne time) or 11pm Sunday 31st July (US Eastern Standard time)

Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers – Z is for Zombies

Today I had a chance to get crafty with the current Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge – Z is for Zombies.

It feels like ages since I’ve crafted with the Sisters, but I couldn’t resist this theme!

For my card I created a sponged background panel using a variety of green distress inks from Tim Holtz, added some embossed lightning bolts from Altenew ‘Rain or Shine’ and printed a digital image from E9 Designs on Etsy.

I love how this card came out. Thanks for stopping by for a look. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Fusion: Flowers

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

Just Add Ink #609 – Just Add Flowers

Hello there, it’s time for another Just Add Ink Challenge and do we have a great theme for you!

While I was on holidays the other week, I bought a craft magazine that had an amazing stamp set called ‘Japanese Dreams’ and that’s where I got this lovely blossom flower from. I stamped it close to the edge and then coloured it with my Stampin Blends. I then fussy cut along the edge and popped it up on a card base with some gorgeous gold sparkle on it. The sentiment is from Uniquely Creative which I cut apart and individually popped up.

Isn’t she pretty?

Just Add Ink #607 – Just Add 2 – Coffee/Tea/Friend

Hello there, it’s time for another Just Add Ink Challenge and do we have a great challenge for you!

For my two, I chose coffee and friend. I wanted to create texture on my card, so used a coffee cup embossing folder on some black cardstock and then sanded it for the white core to show. I then stamped the coffee cup from Stampin Up ‘Coffee Cafe’ on some SU Crumb Cake cardstock. For more texture, I used my puffy paint to look like the foam on the top of an iced coffee. The coffee beans were stamped on some cork cardstock and then die cut out.
