Aud Sentiments Challenge 241

Hi crafty people!  How are you today?  I’m still busy making stock for a weekemd of two craft fairs (not sure why that seemed like a good idea!!) but I’m sneaking in with a blog post for the new Aud Sentiments Challenge which has the theme of a Christmas or winter sentiment.

The new challenge is sponsored by Polkadoodles who very kindly gifted the design team an image to use for this challenge.

SAL Sunday 15

Happy Sunday crafty people! I’m back with another stitch along (SAL) post.  This SAL is organised by the lovely Avis.  The idea is to finish off a UFO (or Unfinished Object!) and let me tell you I have lots of those!  If you fancy joining in then contact Avis and she will give you all the information you need.

It’s been a hectic few weeks and I’ve hardly posted to my blog.  I’ve been busy making orders for my Etsy shop and building up stock for some Christmas craft fairs.  I had my first one last weekend and it was a fab day with lots of people visiting us.  Here I am in all ready for the shoppers to arrive.

Three weeks ago I was working on this mystery square….

20191101_105928.jpg

 

There were various guesses for the flower in this square and a Avis and Sunny got it right…..

20191124_092846.jpg

Well done ladies!  I’m not sure that it looks that much like blue bells but it’s quite pretty!  I also managed to complete this square since the last SAL post….

20191124_092916.jpg

I also made a start on this one….

20191124_092950.jpg

So in the tradition of my SAL posts any guesses on what the flower is (remember I’m not working in alphabetical order, I just pick based on my preference!).  I hope that in three weeks time I will have this one finished off so I can reveal the completed square and see if anyone guessed right!

I’m looking forward to catching up with all the other blogs in this SAL group, please give them a visit too, I’ve linked them here so you can easily find them.

Aud Sentiment Challenge 240 – Thank You

Hi crafty people!  How are you all doing?  I’ve been super busy getting organised for my first festive craft fair for this year.  I never know how much stock to take but I’d prefer to have too much rather than too little so I’m up to my eyes in Santa hats, glitter and card blanks!  Anyway I found a little time to make a card for the new Aud Sentiments Challenge which starts today with the theme “thank you”.  Challenge #240 is sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps which is very exciting as they have some of my favourite digi stamps!  As a design team member for the challenge I was lucky to be gifted the Beautiful Blocks Thank You Digi Stamp  to create a project.

I simply coloured in the flowers and butterflies with alcohol pens and used some distress ink in faded jeans with a brush to add some subtle blue to the sky.  I mounted the panel on some black card and added it to a card blank.  I trimmed a strip from the front panel to reveal the inside.  I printed the panel in a smaller size too and coloured the flower before fussy cutting it out to add to the inside so it is just peeking out.

I hope you will join in the challenge, you have until the 25th of November!  Thanks so much for visiting the blog, I hope to see you again soon!

Happy Beer Day!

Happy Monday crafty people!  I can’t believe we are starting another week.  How was your weekend?  We had a lovely weekend away in Pitlochry.  Here are a few pictures from our travels.  We went up to visit the Enchanted Forest for the 6th year in a row.  It was amazing as ever and the theme this time was Cosmos.  We also enjoyed watching South Africa win the Rugby World Cup and enjoying some beautiful autumnal scenery, good food and some whisky tasting!

Today I am sharing my entry for the Cardz 4 Guyz  challenge 231, with the theme of food or drink.  I made this card last week for my husband.  The patterned paper and sentiment came from Doctor Digi’s House of Stamps.  I added a pint of frothy beer which I die cut and added some detail with alcohol ink.

I hope that you like my card and that you have a great start to your week.  I would also like to enter my card in the following challenges:

Crafty Hazelnut’s Patterned Paper Challenge

Penny’s Paper Craft Challenge #454 Anything Goes

Many thanks for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog, I hope to see you again soon!

SAL Sunday 14

Happy Sunday crafty people! I’m back with another stitch along (SAL) post.  I was away on holiday for the last one so it’s been 6 weeks since I shared an update.  This SAL is organised by the lovely Avis.  The idea is to finish off a UFO (or Unfinished Object!) and let me tell you I have lots of those!  If you fancy joining in then contact Avis and she will give you all the information you need.

Three weeks ago I was working on my sweet pea square from my floral alphabet.  I haven’t been doing these in any order, just hopping around depending on my mood to pick the next one.

So last time I checked in I was here, (close to finishing):

This time I have finished off the sweet peas….

…and made a start on the next square….. anyone like to make a guess which flower I’m currently stitching?

20191101_105928.jpg

 

I hope that in three weeks time I will have this one finished off so I can reveal the completed square and see if anyone guessed right!

I’m looking forward to catching up with all the other blogs in this SAL group, please give them a visit too, I’ve linked them here so you can easily find them, we’ve had a couple of stitchers step out this time (sorry to see you go Helen and Clare) and we are welcoming back Connie who has been on a little stitch-along break.

I also used these Arabian Nights Papers which were a free download from Papercrafter Magazine.  How perfect are these for this digi stamp?

I used some patterned papers for different layers and I also fussy cut elements to create a scene and for the sentiment, “make a wish”.  I hope my card brings a smile today and that you make a wish or three today…. you never know !

Being good is overrated!!

Happy Monday!  How are you all doing?  I hope you had a fab weekend.  I was in Glasgow yesterday at the craft fair at the SECC and I picked up a few new crafty items to play with!  We also were celebrating the Springboks win and looking forward to the Rugby World Cup final next weekend!

I had such fun playing along with the Cat Lover’s Blog Hop last week so it’s feeling a little strange to be sharing a project that doesn’t have a single cat on it!  I was inspired by the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge #146 for this project.

I decided to use the Good to be Bad stamp set from Clearly Besotted.  I used some pink glitter card and made an inky background for my witch by smooshing distress oxides in abandoned coral and picked raspberry as well as the milled lavender distress ink.  I added some little star stamps and the sentiment heat embossed in white.

I used the spectrum noir sparkle pen in crystal clear over the witches outfit to make it a little more bling!

20191028_170308.jpg

I’d also like to enter this project into the Cardz 4 Gals challenge which is to use something beginning with S.  I’m counting the sparkly elements and the stars!  I’m also including this card in theLeigh SB Designs 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop (I’m a little late to the game but better late than never!)

Day 6 of the Cat Lovers Hop

Happy Saturday! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.  It’s the last day of the Cat Lovers Hop today and I’m sad to see it finish but I’ve really enjoyed hopping around the different blogs and seeing such a great variety of cat themed crafts.

2019 CLH Badge1

My last project is a Christmas card using the beautiful cat die set from Marianne Designs and also the collectables outfit die set for the hat and scarf.  I used grey cards to make a silver tabby and then dressed him in a cosy red scarf and hat.  I thought the scarf looked a bit plain so I used a white gel pen to add some spots.

20191021_160801

I added some starry paper with some red and navy card and used a festive sentiment from the Hobby Art stamp set Santa Paws.

Thanks so much for everyone who has visited the blog and left a comment, especially my fellow hoppers!

Day 5 Cat Lovers Hop

Happy Friday!  But in the mean time I’m back with another cat project for the Cat Lovers Hop.  If you are looking for more information on this fun blog hop check out Janis at Her Peaceful Garden, she has put in so much work to make this such a great week.

2019 CLH Badge1

Today’s card uses the Feline Fine stamp set from Clearly Besotted Stamps .  I used the current sketch from the Fusion Card Challenge for the layout.  I coloured my images using alcohol inks and fussy cut them out.

20191023_120243.jpg

The patterned papers were in my scrap pile and I used a strip of gray card and stamped the sentiment onto this.

20191023_120240.jpg

I hope you like this little card, it’s always good to have a few get well cards in my stash so I can send it out when a friend is under the weather.  Thanks so much for visiting the blog.
