October Inspiration

I can't believe that October is nearly over and Christmas is almost here! I have a card to share for the Altenew October inspiration challenge. I don't really make a lot of orange cards and decided to challenge myself after seeing the colour palette. I picked 2 shades of yellow, one orange and one brown to make the following card. Thanks for dropping in!

Stamp - Altenew Bride to Be and Sentiment

Washi Fun Cards

I had so much fun with new washi tapes from Altenew and ended up making quite a few cards. The ones below are made from Painted Fantasy and Pastel Strokes. The first one is for the current Fusion Card Challenge - Pastel Holloween. Thank you for the Honourable Mention in the last challenge! Thank you for dropping by!

Christmas Card 2018 - 1

My first Christmas card for 2018! 

I made this card at a recent craft retreat and I used borrowed supplies to make this card. I experimented with alcohol inks during this retreat and created the background for these cards. I just loved the die cut windows which made this shaker card easy to create! Thanks for dropping by!

WCMD Challenge 2018-1

I had a busy weekend for World Card Making Day. I managed to squeeze in a couple of cards. This one is for a 60th Wedding celebration. I decided to use my newly acquired Simon Says Stamp October kit stamp for the background image of an A5 sized card. I then stamped the sentiment and die cut out the numbers. I used several coats of clear embossing powder to create a lovely finish on the numbers. I'd also layered the numbers on a stack of gold cardstock. Happy WCMD!!

Rose Filament Birthday

I have another card to share. I used the Altenew Rose Filament dies and traced the outlines onto watercolour card stock. I loosely coloured them with the Altenew Pan set and then diecut the shapes. Then the fun part, arranging them in the background of the card and then die cutting the rectangle shape. Some sentiments added and it was done! I'm adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes.

Kaisercraft Baby Love

I have a couple of baby cards to share. Two of my friends had baby girls within two weeks of each other. Since trying to organise my Craft Room on the weekend, I came to the realisation that I am hoarding too much patterned paper pads. I love going to the local Kaisercraft store and buying discounted paper pads and Collectables! So I thought I better start using them! The first card below is for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes and the second card is based on the current Fusion Card Challenge Baby Shower sketch. Oh, guess what? No stamps were harmed during the making of these cards! Thanks for dropping by!
