Aud Sentiments 242

Hi crafty people!  I hope you are having a great week.  It’s such a hectic time of year that I’ve hardly been on my blog and I’m missing it.  I’m hoping to get a bit of time later today with a cuppa to read through some blog posts and see what everyone has been up to.

I’m here to share my contribution to the new Aud Sentiments Challenge which is to create a winter or Christmas themed project with a sentiment.

The sponsor for this challenge is Digi Doodle Studios who have a gorgeous range of digital stamps and they kindly gifted the DT members a stamp to use for the challenge.

I made an easel card with some starry paper and a few gold gems to add a little extra sparkle.  I hope you will enter the challenge, it’s open for a little longer because of the holidays season so you have until the 6th of January next year!

Have a great day.

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.

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.

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

Happy world card making day!  I hope you find some crafty time to celebrate!  Today I’m sharing a Christmas card I made inspired by the Fusion Card Challenge.  I used the sketch but not the theme for this one.

I bought the recent Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine which came with a cute gift including a cheeky robin and winter foliage dies which I used for this project.

Alphabet Challenge – N for Naughty!

Hi crafty people!  How are you all doing?

There’s a new challenge up today at the Alphabet Challenge and we are now on N for naughty!  This was a fun prompt and it was the perfect excuse to use this bugaboo digital stamp that I purchased recently!

I coloured him with pencils before fussy cutting the image out.  I had some snowy scenes in my paper stash so I used that as a background and added the snowflake trim down the side before adding the image and sentiment.  The finishing touch was some pale blue gems at the bottom corner and one in each of the snowflakes down the side.

Q for Quarters

Hi crafty people!  How are you today? We went into Edinburgh last night to watch the fireworks that mark the end of the festival.  We headed into Inverleith Park with a blanket and cosy jumpers and had a lovely view of the castle.  I tried to take some pics of the fireworks but they were all rubbish but this was our view with the castle all lit up before it got fully dark.

Now that the festival is finished Christmas will be here in no time (eek sorry, but it always feels that way!) so today’s card is for the ABC Christmas Challenge – PQR.  Specifically it’s for the Q for quarters prompts.  I used some papers from a Craftwork Cards Christmas USB, plus some silver glitter paper and navy blue card.  The Let it Snow circle was from a Trimcraft set I believe.

Ho ho ho…. it’s Christmas in July!

Hi crafty people, how are you today?  I hope you are all doing well.  We are a “man” down in the Ginger Ninja household as the Ginger Ninja himself is poorly and has been at the vets since Sunday morning.  He had a blockage in his bladder so he was really distressed and sore but after surgery and lots of TLC from the vets and nurses he is on the mend and I hope we can bring him home really soon because we are all missing him.  Here’s a pic from healthier times!

I have been crafting as a good distraction and I’d like to share a festive make for the following challenges:

Crafty Hazlenuts Christmas Challenge #446

The Male Room Challenge #115  #115

Crafty Calendar Challenge

Here is my card:

20190716_115537.jpg

I used a new Sizzix die and I coloured his face and beard with some alcohol inks.  I paper pieced the hat with some red card and a glitter white for the fur and pom pom.

I thought I would finish off with a few pics from our wander around Edinburgh on Saturday night.  We managed to find 7 of the “Oor Wullie” statues that are dotted around the city.  I used to read the Oor Wullie cartoons in the Sunday post as a kid so it was fun to see a few and I hope to see some more before they get auctioned for children’s charities.

Thanks so much for visiting the blog and I hope to see you again soon!

F for Fabric

Hi crafty people, I hope you all have a fab Monday.  This month the ABC Christmas Challenge has three prompts for E F and G.  I posted the E card last week so today I am sharing my entry for F for Fabric.

The fabric I chose to use in lace.  I layered up the lace with some kraft card and checked paper.  Then I cut some mistletoe  (I think it’s a First Edition die) from green card and used nuvo drops to add the berries.  The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

I hope that you like this simple Christmas Card.  Thanks so much for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog, I hope I will see you again soon.

E is for Embellishments

Happy Friday crafty people!  Hope you are having a great day.

I am really enjoying the ABC Christmas Challenge and I have a nice little stash of Christmas cards for 2019 already!  Today I am sharing my card for the E for Embellishments prompts.

I chose to use some gems as the embellishments.  The christmas pudding die is from Tonic Studios.  I paper pieced some pale gold for the icing and green mirror card for the holly leaves and then added some gems for the berries.  The gems were clear and I coloured them red using an alcohol pen.

20190312_140503

I added some red glitter card and green mirror card mats and used a sentiment stamp from Clearly Besotted.

D for Decorations

Happy hump day crafty people! I’m back today with another entry to the ABC Christmas Challenge , this time for D (Decorations).  I used this bauble die from Sweet Dixie and cut it out several times from silver and three different shades of blue.  I paper pieced the blues into the silver outlines and drew on a string to attach the baubles to their branch.

20190225_152044

I finished the baubles off with some pale blue gems at the centre of the stars and in the corners.  The sentiment is stamped and then popped up on two different layers of blue and then mounted with 3d pads.

It’s never easy to take photos of mirror card but hopefully you can an idea of how it looks from the two different views.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog, I’d love it if you left a comment to say hello!
