Sunday Playtime

Hi Everybody,

back again with a couple of more projects, and yes, hooray! I had more playtime today. Thanks again for your lovely comments, hope you’ll like today’s offering …

first up is a Monster Birthday …

Monster Birthday

… on a simply stamped BG combined with a digi sentiment and fuzzy cut digi monster, courtesy of  Create A Smile Stamps. The stamps used to stamp the BG are Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds and PATCHWORK FRENZY Graphic Squares  both by STAMPlorations, inks (Basic Grey and Tangerine Tango) and old olive card are by Stampin’Up!, white card and metal embellies are from my stash.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Cardz4Guyz– no patterned paper, think this would be a great boy’s birthday card

House of Cards – colour palette , hope that this is still ok despite me having used a touch of purple

Happy Little Stampers – Sketch , slightly changed it, but hope it’s still ok

My next card is one I made using the freebie stamps which had landed on my doormat yesterday, when the postman dropped the newest copy of Papercraft Essentials through the door. I thought it was perfect for the following challenges:

– Addicted to CAS – cuddly

Time out – double the joy, use two of something  – my card features two bears

Christmas Bears

I stamped and coloured my image using a mixture of Promarkers and Tinge Alcohol Markers, rounded some corners, layered on Real Red (Stampin’Up!) and then onto my base card, stamped my sentiment, cut it into a banner, attached it using foam dots and finished off by adding a red gem and twine.

They both have been very easy cards to make. Have fun making yours.

Enjoy and Happy Crafting!!! 🙂

 

These are the STAMPlorations stamp sets I used for the background in my first card:

Splashing about with Ink

Hello Everybody,

Just a quick post today. I have been playing about with ink … again!

At the moment I seem to be in a pink & yellow phase, well at least that seems to be true for three of the cards I want to share with you today.

First up a couple of cards I made today …

friends eat cake

This was such a speedy and fun card to make … a bit of stamping, masking, blending and splashing/spraying and you’re done. I thought about adding gems, sequins or pearls, but it somehow seemed to start fighting with the cake hence I decided against it and simply added some glitter instead.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Inkspirational – Splash

Case this sketch  I turned it upside down

Next up is another card I made today …

celebrate you

This time I used a mix of pink and blue, some stenciling, stamping and punching and you’re done.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Addicted to CAS – celebrate

House of Cards – Add a Bow

CASology – Run

Time Out – Photo Inspiration, I went with the chevron/arrow theme and overall graphic feel of the image below

Next up are a couple of projects I made for my STAMPlorations Spotlight Post which went live today …

Shrink Plastic Liliy

There are detailed instructions on how to make this card plus a craft-along video tutorial on here the STAMPlorations Blog.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Inspirational – Splash, there are some very visible splashes in the background

Case this Sketch – same sketch as above for my first card, I have taken some liberties with it, but I hope it will still qualify

… and now to my last card …

hello Lily

Again there is an in depth tutorial plus craft-along video here on the STAMPlorations Blog.

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration.

Back soon … until then

Happy Crafting 🙂
