Aud Sentiments Challenge #290 – Anything Goes

Hi crafty friends! I hope you are all having a great week. It’s time for our first Aud Sentiments Challenge of 2022 and it’s an Anything Goes prompt so everyone can join in really easily!

Our challenge is now just once a month but we have two sponsors for our challenge this month, Stamper’s Delights and Di’s Digi Delights. I was very kindly gifted a digi stamp to use for this month from Stamper’s Delights.

I printed my stamp (Chibi My Kind of Crazy) which comes with a sentiment too and coloured it with my alcohol markers before fussy cutting her out. I added some patterned papers to a card base and played around with the arrangement of Chibi and the sentiment until I was happy. After gluing the elements down I added a little shading behind Chibi to make her look like she isn’t just floating around in mid air!

I hope you will share your makes with us, remember the only rule is really that you include a sentiment on your project! Crafty hugs

Aud Sentiments #288 – Anything Goes and a Sentiment

Hi there crafty friends, I hope you are all having a lovely week. It’s time for another challenge over at the Aud Sentiments blog and we have an “Anything Goes” prompt this time (as long as the project includes a sentiment!) so it’s super easy for everyone to join in.

I am totally in the festive card making zone at the moment so I kept on that theme and made a card for my Christmas stash! I used an Altenew stamp set which I think came with a magazine last year and a Tonic Studios Jingle Bells sentiment die. I stamped the bells using two shades of yellow ink and cut them out with the coordinating die. I used the foliage stamp to create some leaves for the bells to hang from and added some bows cut from mirror card. I hope you like this clean and simple (well it is for me!) card.

I can’t wait to see everyone’s cards for this challenge. Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!

Aud Sentiment #287 – Christmas and a Sentiment

Hi there crafty friends, how are you all this week? My hubby and I are full of the cold at the moment. We’ve had negative covid tests so it seems to just be the seasonal bug that is doing the rounds but we are both feeling pretty rubbish so it’s been a quiet week keeping cosy and trying to recover! It’s time for a new challenge over at the Aud Sentiment blog and seeing as it is now November we have a Christmas theme!

We have the lovely Hetty Clare sponsoring this blog and I was gifted the beautiful Pony Christmas image to use for my design team card. I coloured the digi stamp with my alcohol markers and then added a little colour to the background and trimmed the image before adding a black mat. I used a piece of snowflake paper and a few nuvo drops and of course a sentiment!

I love this cute pony trotting along with his parcel, just so cute! I hope that you are all keeping well and having a crafty week. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Aud Sentiments Challenge #286 Halloween

Hi crafty friends, how are you doing today? It’s time for a new challenge over at the Aud Sentiments blog and this week is one of my favourites….. Halloween!

Challenge number 286 is sponsored by the lovely Paper Shelter and they very kindly gifted the design team members the Spoooky digital stamp which comes with a pre coloured version, a background and the line drawing that you can colour as you like.

I coloured in the figure using alcohol markers and fussy cut the image out. I then created two backgrounds with the Trick or Treat stamp set from Clearly Besotted. The first I made with heat embossed resist and distress ink smooshing.

The other was just a simple stamping of little spider webs. I added a die cut sentiment and some card mats in black and purple. I felt like the little ghost on the sentiment needed a little bling so I added stickles in crystal ice. To make the Spoooky figure stand out I added a little shadow with a grey watercolour pencil and a water brush.

I hope that you have fun making a Halloween themed project to join in this challenge. Remember the only rule is that you need to include a sentiment on your project. Thanks for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog.

Aud Sentiments Challenge #284 – Friendship and a sentiment

Hi crafty friends! How has your week been? I’m hopping on today with a new prompt for the Aud Sentiments Challenge. This time we are being tasked with making a friendship themed project (and please remember to include that important sentiment!)

We are very kindly sponsored by Polkadoodles who were generous in gifting the design team an image to use for this challenge. I was delighted to receive “Let’s Go Winnie“, a super cute digi stamp.

I am still on a mission to finish off some of my paper pad stash so the papers in this are all from one collection, including the die cut flowers and the little yellow “Hello”. I used a stamp from my stash to add the word friend to finish off the card.

Such a cute image, I’m fairly sure neither of my cats would tolerate any notions of me taking them for a walk! I hope you will hop over to check out the other beautiful cards made by my design team colleagues, they won’t disappoint! Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!

Aud Sentiments Challenge #282

Hi crafty friends, how are you all doing today? I’m here to share the brand new Aud Sentiments Challenge which starts today. Our new theme gives us a choice from Thinking of you, Get well or Sympathy Sentiments. Just remember all entries must include a sentiment!

This challenge is sponsored by Stampers Delights who kindly gifted the design team members an image to use. I was given Kawaii Medical Heroes 2 which is a set with two characters and three different sentiments.

Here is my project using two of the sentiments and one of the characters. I coloured them with a mix of triblend and copic markers, added some patterned papers and a couple of nuvo drops for the finishing touches.

I hope you will join in with our challenge, can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Aud Sentiments #281 – Anything Goes

Hi crafty friends, how are you all doing today? I hope you are having a great week. It’s time for a new Aud Sentiments Challenge and this time anything goes (as long as you include a sentiment of course!).

I used two Tracey Hey stamp sets (Weirdo and Having it All) for this card. I also used an inky background from my stash (made with Catherine Pooler reinkers and water). I added a little stripey strip made with a black sharpy pen.

I hope you like my little weirdo card and snarky sentiment, it made me giggle!

Aud Sentiments #280 – Anything Goes

Hi crafty friends, I hope you are all having a great week. It’s time for a new challenge over at the Aud Sentiments Challenge and our theme is “Anything Goes” so everyone can easily join in this one, all you need to remember is to include a sentiment in your design!

Our lovely sponsor for challenge #280 is Oddball Art by Lizzy Love and we were very kindly gifted an image to use, what a treat, I absolutely love these cute and quirky digi stamps! I was gifted Mr Sweets The Fox to use.

I coloured Mr Sweets in with my triblend markers and cut a little square with rounded corners. I inked around the fox to get rid of the white card. I added a mat and arranged some different patterned papers for Mr Sweets to sit on! The sentiment is from the Fox Tales stamp set by Jen Long for Sizzix. I finished off the card with a few orange nuvo drops.

Thanks so much for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog today, I hope to see you again soon!

Aud Sentiments Challenge #279

Hi crafty friends, I hope you are having a great week? It’s time for a new Aud sentiments challenge and our prompt this time is “The kids of summer”, plus of course a sentiment!

We are very kindly sponsored by Fred She Said and they have gifted the design team images to use for this challenge. I was delighted to receive Emma Blowing Bubbles, an adorable summer image.

I coloured Emma with my trusty tri blend markers from Spectrum Noir and added some shading with polychromos pencils. I created a sky and grass with some watercolour and cut a panel out. The papers and other elements are from a Craft Asylum 12 x 12 paper pad which was a bargain a few years ago (and I’m not sure what I was saving it for!).

I hope you have a wonderful day and that you see some sunshine today!

Fairy Magic! – Aud Sentiments #278

Hi crafty friends, I hope you are all having a great week. It’s time for another challenge over at the Aud Sentiments blog and this is a really fun one! Our theme is “Fairy Magic” and of course, a sentiment!

My husband and I recently spent a week on the Isle of Skye and it was jam packed with fairy related places. We walked up to see the fairy pools, we visit the fairy Glen, a fairy bridge and saw the fairy flag in Dunvegan castle. No actual fairy sightings to report but that is probably a good thing as they are not really the cute friendly creatures of cartoons! Here are a few pictures of some of the fairy attractions of Skye!

The Fairy Flag (or what’s left of it…… it’s very old!)

But back to the challenge! We are lucky to be sponsored by Digi Doodles Studios this time and they kindly gifted the design team members an image to use.

I was delighted to be gifted Adelina Fairy, who I coloured with my triblend markers with a little extra shading from my polychromos pencils. For my magical background I used thee Catherine Pooler reinkers (It’s a Girl, Melon Ice and Sweet Sixteen). I sprayed some 300 gsm card with water and dropped the three colours on before spraying with more water to move the colurs around and create a pattern I liked. Once it was totally dried I cut various sizes of circles. I arranged these on a square card blank and added a sentiment and some magic fairy dust stars before popping Adelina on top with some card under to add dimension.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you again soon!
