Hugs and Happiness

Hi crafty people, I hope you are doing well. It’s been a misty and wet weekend in Scotland which is perfect crafting weather! Today I am sharing a card I made for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge (number 439).

I decided to use another die cut from a recent swap I took part in, a square with circles around the edge. I layered it with a square of lilac patterned card from my stash of left over bits and pieces! I stamped and coloured one of my favourite cuties from the Rhino Rascals stamp set by Tracey Hey. The sentiment I’m using comes from a Marianne Design set.

I added some tattered rose distress ink to the centre of the white panel and die cut a little scribble circle die in a pale lilac vellum.

I added the cute rhino and sentiment and a few nuvo jewel drops (pale periwinkle and steel blue) to complete the card.

I think my favourite thing is those little mouse slippers, every rhino needs some spotty mouse slippers I think! I hope you are all safe and well.

I was delighted to be gifted the fabulous Captain Thunderpants !  I coloured him in using watercolour pencils and a gold gel pen before fussy cutting him out.

I also used the Blam Backing Papers   and the Comic Sentiments Sheet also from Dr Digi.  I coloured one of the Happy Birthday sentiments and layered it up on blue, yellow and red card.  Then I added a stamped sentiment from Clearly Besotted’s Happy Birthday LOL stamp set.  I heat embossed it in gold before adding to the card front.  I added the Happy Birthday and Captain Thunderpants by using 3d pads to add some dimension.

Happy 10th Birthday Aud Sentiments Challenge!

Hi crafty people!  How are you doing today?

There’s a new challenge over at the Aud Sentiments Challenge and it’s a super special one as the challenge is 10 years old!

10thbirthdayaud

We have two lovely sponsors for this special challenge ( Fabrika Fantasy and Leann’s World 101 )

I am very grateful to have received  Dancing Squirrel from Fabrika Fantasy for this project and this is such a cute image to work with.  I printed my image out and coloured it with alcohol pens (I’ve got a mix of different brands to work with!) and then I fussy cut the image.

 

I decided to make a gatefold card so I cut a scalloped circle and a embossed a mat for it with a leaf embossing folder.  I added some patterned paper to the front to make it a bit more festive and then a couple of die cut balloons and the sentiment.

I wanted to make the inside a bit more interesting too so I can added some patterned paper with a white square and then a little bunch of balloons .

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.

Happy Beer Day!

Happy Monday crafty people!  I can’t believe we are starting another week.  How was your weekend?  We had a lovely weekend away in Pitlochry.  Here are a few pictures from our travels.  We went up to visit the Enchanted Forest for the 6th year in a row.  It was amazing as ever and the theme this time was Cosmos.  We also enjoyed watching South Africa win the Rugby World Cup and enjoying some beautiful autumnal scenery, good food and some whisky tasting!

Today I am sharing my entry for the Cardz 4 Guyz  challenge 231, with the theme of food or drink.  I made this card last week for my husband.  The patterned paper and sentiment came from Doctor Digi’s House of Stamps.  I added a pint of frothy beer which I die cut and added some detail with alcohol ink.

Today’s card uses the Feline Fine stamp set from Clearly Besotted Stamps .  I used the current sketch from the Fusion Card Challenge for the layout.  I coloured my images using alcohol inks and fussy cut them out.

The patterned papers were in my scrap pile and I used a strip of gray card and stamped the sentiment onto this.

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.

Aud Sentiments Challenge #235

Hi crafty people!  I hope you are having a wonderful week?  Today there is a new challenge kicking off at the Aud Sentiments Challenge.  The theme is autumn or fall and of course to include a sentiment!  The challenge finishes up on the 16th of September so you have plenty of time to get crafty!

TPS_TemplateLayout3

This time we have been sponsored by The Paper Shelter and as a design team member I was so lucky to be gifted a beautiful image to work with.  The digi stamp I used is Autumn Enchantment  and it’s a beauty!  I absolutely love autumn as a theme for crafting so this was a treat to make.

I used a Sue Wilson Creative Expressions die to cut the frame to go behind this pretty autumn fairy.  I cut some leaves from card that I had inked up in some autumn colours with distress oxide inks.  The quote was part of a magazine gift stamp set last year.  I coloured my image with alcohol inks and then fussy cut her out before adding her to the card.

I hope you will join us for the challenge, there are some beautiful projects over on the blog from my fellow design team members to give you some inspiration.  Thanks so much for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog.  Have a fab day.
