Aud Sentiments #247 – Spring/Easter

Hi crafty people!  How are you all doing?  I hope you are all safe and keeping your spirits up as much as possible in these challenging times.  We are doing well, my husband is lucky to be able to work from home so we are staying home as much as possible and keeping in regular contact with my Mum who is socially distancing due to her age. I’m so grateful for my craft stash to keep me sane!

If you are looking for some crafty inspiration and community then the new challenge over at The Aud Sentiments Challenge might be a good starting place!  The new challenge is all about Spring or Easter and you can enter up to five times with any crafty projects that fit in with the theme and include a sentiment!

This challenge is sponsored by the lovely people over at Polkadoodles.

As design team members we were lucky to be gifted a digi stamp to use.  I was delighted to be given Bunnita Carrot a super cute bunny holding a carrot cake!  I coloured Bunnita with coloured pencils and fussy cut her out.  I had some easter egg dies in my stash so I cut a few of those and a Happy Easter sentiment and searched in my stash of paper scraps and this is my result…..

I hope Bunnita makes you smile today.  I’m going to be posting more often on my blog to try and stay connected in non physical ways with people!  If you are coping with social distancing with crafty projects too leave me a link to your blog in the comments so I can check out what you are up to and leave you a comment.  Stay strong everyone.

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 chose Benson Bear – Just for You which is super cute and perfect for the challenge theme of creating a card for a child.  I decided to make an easel card for Benson to feature on.

I coloured him in with alcohol inks and fussy cut him out before arranging the card using some patterned paper, ribbon, embossed cardstock and kraft card.
