Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great weekend and that your Monday is going well. Today I’m back on the card challenge train and I’m sharing my card for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge, FMS 341 ( http://freshlymadesketches.blogspot.com/ )
I went with a get well soon theme and this is my card for the challenge…..
I used stamps from two Lawn Fawn sets (Get Well Soon and On the Mend) and coloured the images with alcohol pens.
I embossed a white card background and then used a chevron embossing folder to make an embossed resist background with distress inks (cracked pistachio, squeezed lemondae and twisted citron). Then I die cut two different size of circles and punched some smaller circles.
What do you think? I really liked chevron paper I made and love the cute lawn fawn images. Happy Monday everyone!
Hi everyone, can’t believe it’s been 10 days since I last posted, I’m sure time is speeding up at the moment…. maybe I’m just getting old! Anyway I’m back with another card for a challenge. This time it’s the Male Room Challenge blog.( https://themaleroomchallengeblog.blogspot.com/2018/06/challenge-87-little-boys-dt-call.html )
The theme for challenge 87 is “little boys” and I went with a space theme using die cuts and a pixie powder night sky for this easel card.
I bought my first pixie powders earlier this year and I’ve loved playing with them and seeing the different effects. This was the first time I tried them on dark card and I was really pleased with the night sky I created.
I scattered some of the three colours onto navy card stock and then sprayed with water, and used a paint brush to add water to any larger clumps of powder to make sure they had all reacted.
I then added a dovecraft die cut rocket and some tiny silver stars and stamped a happy birthday sentiment.
To keep the card sitting up I raised the circle panel on the card base with some sticky pads and added an age for the birthday boy.
I hope you like my card and I’d love it if you left me a comment!
Today I thought I would share a pocket letter I made a few weeks ago for a crafty swap via a Facebook group. I used a combination of printed papers as well as some I decorated myself using heat embossed stamps, distress inks, stencils and inked embossing folders. I decorated the pockets with some butterfly die cuts, sentiments and coloured stamped butterflies.
And on the reverse some goodies for my swap partner. This time I included some paper ephemera, die cuts, stickers, papers, embellishments, washi samples and a mini notebook I made as well as a short letter.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my pocket letter and I’d love to hear about your crafty swaps. Thanks for stopping by.
Just a quick post today to share another card challenge post. This time for the MFT sketch challenge. I decided to use the MFT Magical Dragons and made some panels with distress inks for the dragon, knight and damsel in distress. I hope you like the card.
Happy Friday everyone! I hope you have had a great day, we have had a stormy afternoon which is perfect crafting weather although the cats were all a bit spooked by the rumbling thunder.
I’m back with another card challenge (I did warn you I’ve been a bit addicted!) and this time it’s the Freshly Made Sketches challenge 339. I’ve also decided to try the 30 day colouring challenge over on instagram organised by @Kathyrac starting today. So this card is killing 2 birds with one stone (don’t worry, no flamingos were harmed in the making of this card!)
I love the sketch this week and had fun playing with different papers etc.
I eventually decided on a flamingo theme and used a mixture of two stamp sets. The sentiment came from a Crafter’s Companion set that was a gift with Crafter’s Inspiration magazine and the rest was a For the Love of Stamps by Hunkydory tropical set.
I stamped the small flamingos and heat embossed them in pink. The other corner I used the hibiscus flowers as a resist and then used distress oxide inks in seedless preserves and picked raspberry with a light spritz of water to give a light spotty effect.
Finally I coloured and fussy cut a flamingo for the top of the card and stamped the sentiment directly onto the card.
I hope you like it and manage some crafty time over the weekend. Are you participating in any card challenges or the 30 day marker challenge?
