Aud Sentiments Challenge #256

Hi crafty people, how are you today? I hope you are all keeping safe and well. The Aud Sentiment blog has a new challenge today and this time the theme is Things with Wings (and a sentiment….. of course!)

The current challenge is sponsored by the lovely Crafty Sentiments Designs.

I was very lucky to be gifted Toby in a Pot to use for this blog. This image is so adorable with the little bunny popping out of the pot! I coloured the scene in with a selection of alcohol pens and used some salty ocean distress oxide to add a little blue to the sky. I cut the scene using a circle die and added a scalloped circle mat in pale blue.

The sentiment comes from a Clearly Besotted stamp set and I added some mini butterflies cut from scraps of glitter card and pixie powder paper. Obviously I had to add some nuvo drops because I am incapable of making a project without these!

I hope you will pop over to the Aud Sentiments Challenge to see all the fab projects made by the design team and we’d love to see all your projects with anything with wings!

Aud Sentiments #248 – Anything Goes

Happy Thursday!  I hope you are keeping well.  I saw a post on facebook that we are safe at home not stuck at home and I thought that was a helpful way to think about it.  Especially when we have so many crafty projects to keep us busy!  If you are looking for a crafty challenge to join in with then there is a new one today at the Aud Sentiments Challenge and it’s theme is anything goes so you can join in as long as you include a sentiment!

The current challenge is sponsored by Crafty Sentiments Designs and we were very kindly gifted an image to use.  I was given A Gentle Touch which is super cute and immediately made me think of twins!  I printed off the image and coloured it in with coloured pencils before fussy cutting.

I also used these items ……

I cut the largest circle I had a die for and folded it in half to make a rocker card.  Then I found some pastel patterned card and cut the next size down and glued it to the rocker.  Then I layered up the bears with the stamped sentiments from Altenew and some die cuts from the First Edition set.

Here it is standing up, I haven’t made a rocker card for ages but they are so cute, I’ve made another couple which I share on my new youtube video at Jenny Ginger Ninja Crafts Channel.

I had spares of the rattle from paper piecing the stripes so I decided instead of wasting them to make some simple gift tags and I also cut and paper pieced some bottles and added them to tags too.  I should be set for the predicted baby boom in 9 months time for baby gifts!!

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.
