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!

Aud Sentiments Challenge #268 – Anything Goes + a sentiment!

Happy Thursday crafty friends! It’s tome for another Aud Sentiments challenge and it’s an Anything Goes challenge so it’s super easy for everyone to enter! (Please remember you need to have a sentiment on your project for this challenge!)

The fabulous sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art by Lizzy Love and they have very kindly given us a gift certificate for the winner!

I was delighted to be given the Kawaii Seals and Sentiments set to work with and let me tell you they are adorable and fabulous value for money with 4 different seal images and a selection of fun sentiments.

I coloured two of the seals with my triblend markers from Spectrum Noir and fussy cut them out. I then made a little snowy background with some pale blue and white card. I used watercolour to create some shading to the sky and then with a white gel pen I added some snowflakes. I added the seals, with one glued straight to the scene and one popped up on 3d pads. I then added some shadows around them again with the watercolour. I arranged some corrugated card and the scene on the card base and then added the sentiment to finish it off.

I hope that these two cute seals bring a smile to you today. I can’t wait to see the entries for this challenge, it’s always such a wide selection for an Anything Goes theme! I hope to see you over on the Aud Sentiments Challenge!

Aud Sentiments Challenge #261 – Autumn/Halloween

Hi crafty people! How are you today? I hope you’ve had a good week so far. We had a chilly start when our boiler stopped working! Thankfully we took out a boiler maintenance policy at the start of the year so we were able to get an engineer out to fix it and we have hot water and heat again! Phew, we were so grateful for that hot water! Anyway it’s time for a new Aud Sentiments challenge today so I am delighted to let you all know what we are looking for this time!

As it’s the 1st of October the theme is autumn or Halloween! I love both of these themes, and I’m so excited for it to be October! The sponsor for this challenge is Digi Doodle Studios, who have been really kind in gifting the design team members an image to use.

I got the witchy shoes digi stamp which is so cute! Who doesn’t love a cute pair of shoes…. and even better I don’t have to break my ankle trying to walk in these!!

I printed out the image and coloured it with polychromo pencils and added details with stickles and my spectrum noir glitter pen.

As it’s the Aud Sentiments challenge we always need to include a sentiment! I didn’t have a suitable one in my stash so I had a little browse on pinterest to find some inspiration, then I typed one out and printed it, added some black card and popped it on the card.

If you are like me and love autumn and Halloween crafting then I hope you will share your projects on the Aud Sentiments challenge. This one runs until the 12th of October.

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

Aud Sentiments Challenge #258 – Anything Goes

Hi crafty people! It’s Thursday and time for a new Aud Sentiments Challenge and for challenge #258 is Anything Goes, as long as you have a sentiment! I couldn’t resist using the Stella Glue Stick digi from Bugaboo Stamps. I coloured her with alcohol markers and fussy cut her out and mounted the accompanying sentiment on a some coloured card.

I used the sketch from the current Catch the Bug Stella Says Sketch Challenge for the card.

I stamped a side panel using a lip stamp…

I also inked around the edge of a panel for Stella to sit on.

The finished card with a few sparkly gems in matching shades of blue.

I hope you will share your projects with us in the challenge, remember all you need is a sentiment and apart from that anything goes!
