Creating with Happy Little Stampers challenges

Today I’m playing along with a few challenges from Happy Little Stampers.

First up is a card for HLS CAS Challenge – Pink & Grey.

I CASEd a card by my good friend Michelle but changed up the stencil, the colour, the sentiment and the positioning of my little bird. I used the MFT “Tweet friends’ stamp set and a digital sentiment from The Ton ‘Birthday Strips’.

Next is a card for HLS – Christmas Challenge – optional elf.

I used Stampin Up “Signs of Santa’ stamp set coloured with my Stampin Blends and with a bit of puffy paint for the fluff and snow.

Next is a card for HLS Anything Goes with Dies.

For this card I made an ink smooshed background panel with my Kaleidacolor ink in ‘Desert Heat’ which I then die cut with a Catherine Pooler Designs ‘Stained glass coverplate’ die and a sentiment from The Ton digital ‘Birthday Strips’.

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

WWC #240 – Kath’s ‘All About Occasions’ Challenge

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Kath is our host with an All About Occasions challenge this week!

For my card, I created an water coloured ink blended panel using my Kaleidacolor ‘melon melody’ ink pad and then used a floral die. I laid the die over a black card panel, then white card panel then onto an orange card. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions.

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.

WWC #239 – Helen’s ‘Masculine Anything Goes’ Challenge

Hello there, it’s time for another Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and Helen is our host with a Masculine Anything Goes challenge this week!

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.

Well, this month we have another challenge over at Sweet Stampin’ Christmas challenge blog with an optional twist to use Christmas decorations on your project.
