Cardmaking

Back in the craft room!

Happy Monday crafty people!  How was your weekend?  We had a busy and productive weekend building out greenhouse, it was a long job but we are so happy with it and I can’t wait to fill it up with plants.  Here are a few pictures of the process and end result just in case you fancy a sneak peak!

I am happy to be back in my cosy craft room making things from paper again!  Today I have a card which I made to enter the MFT Sketch Challenge (see the sketch below) and the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge which asks us to use lilac, sky blue and white.

My starting point was that I wanted to use up some of my extensive washi tape collection!  I started by using some scrap card and covering it with a few selections of washi tape.  I forgot to take a picture of the colours I used for the card before I cut it up but here are the others to give you an idea of what I did!

Then I simply cut out triangle shapes and arranged as per the sketch.  I added a few pearls in lilac and pale blue and a Happy Birthday stamp from a MFT set.

I hope that you like this simple card.  I think I will have a go with some other shapes and patterns too as it was such a nice way of using those washi tapes, I’m so good at buying them and they are not appreciated if they sit in a box on my shelf!

Thanks so much for visiting Ginger Ninja Crafts blog, I hope you will pop back soon!

Gin o’clock! (or is dry January over yet?!)

Hi crafty people, I hope you are doing really well.  It’s been another cold day here with a clear blue sky and a beautiful view of the snowy hills from my desk.

Today I am sharing a card I made for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge which has this sketch to inspire creations…

I really love the diagonal stripes and I dug out my box of washi tapes to see if anything jumped out as inspiration.  I really loved the spotty circles (the top stripe on my card) and it made me think of limes and then I remembered that this stamp had just arrived this week and I knew what I was going to do!

I had the green gingham and glitter paper near at hand from another make and I thought they matched in perfectly.  The lemon and lime came from a die-namics set.
