Ahoy there!

Helloooooo!  It’s been a while since I was active on here and I’ve missed it.  I need to go and catch up on comments and see what blog posts I’ve missed so apologies if there is a flurry of commenting in the next wee while!  Life has been a bit hectic recently but I’m so pleased to be back on the blog.  I thought I would start back with a couple of challenges:

Tuesday Morning Sketch #517

TMS #517

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #476

I decided to use some of my (extensive!) patterned papers and these were from a pad I got in Lidl (I think) at least a year ago!  For glitter I added some blue glitter paper but also fussy cut out some starfish and a shell from the paper which had a glittery finish.

This was a nice quick card to make and I thought it was perfect for the summer.  I hope you have all been doing really well?  We have been keeping busy!  Mr Darcy is finally back to his usual healthy self after nearly a month of recovering from his bladder stones.  I’ve had lots of orders to make up and last weekend I had a stall at a local dogs event which was lots of fun.  I was super busy before making lots of doggy designs in the run up and I’ll be adding them to my Etsy shop over the next week or so.

Thank you so much for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog.  I ‘ll be back again very soon.

Owl I want for Christmas is you!

Happy Monday crafty people!  How was your weekend?  We had a really nice weekend although I didn’t really get much on the to do list done!

Today I’m sharing my entry for Freshly Made Sketches Challenge (367) and the sketch for this challenge is …FMS367

I opted to use the Lawn Fawn Winter Owl stamp set and some papers from my pile I’m trying to use up.  I used a snowy paper for the background and then this textured white cardstock for the front panel.  I can’t remember where I got it but I thought it could almost pass for swirls of snow!

I coloured the owl with alcohol pens and added glossy accents to the eyes.

I hope you like my wee festive owl.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.

Fusion card challenge – galaxy challenge

Hi crafty people!  I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend.  I’ve had a weekend full of cake, catching up with friends and a last outing to the Edinburgh Fringe for another year.  Today I’m sharing a card for the Fusion card challenge (http://fusioncardchallenge.blogspot.com/2018/08/fusion-galaxy.html ) which has the theme of “galaxy”.

I used the Starry sky stamp set from For the Love of Stamps by Hunkydory and a star embossing folder.  The inky background was made by blending distress inks before heat embossing the stars in silver.

Bee Happy – Freshly Made Sketches Challenge

Happy Monday crafty people!  I hope you all had a good weekend and this week has a productive start.  Today I’m sharing my entry for the 349th Freshly Made Challenge.  The sketch is as follows….

FMS349

Initially I was hesitant to take part as I was a bit intimidated by all that white space but I decided to interpret the sketch with a bit more colour and have a go anyway!  I used a die and stamp from this Meadow Flowers set free with the current issue of Papercraft Essentials magazine.

I also used a honeycomb stencil and two of the Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders (Rich Gold and Scarlet Mist) to create the panel.  I used a black sharpie to outline the edges of the panel and mat layered it on some sunny yellow card.

I used the “Bee happy” sentiment from the stamp set and cut the bee from yellow and black card and vellum.  I cut and paper pieced these three layers to give the bee it’s stripey body and soft vellum wings.  To finish off the card I added a few sequence for a bit of bling.

I’d love to hear what you think of my card and if you are entering this challenge too.  Thanks again for stopping by the blog and I hope to see you again soon.
