Arctic Friends

My mojo is still AWOL, but after suffering with a chest and inner ear infection, I've tried to get back into the crafting saddle with this card for my brother in law's birthday next week

I stamped the bear and penguins (my 3 animals) with black Archival, and coloured them with markers (in 3 colours). I sponged blue over some torn paper for the snow under the bear and cut him out with a Nestie and laid that on two more (3 circles in all). It was finished off with a sentiment.

I will be entering it into three challenges:-

Less is More with this sketch

Dynamic Duos with these colours

and CAS-ual Fridays who want things in "THREES"


Card = Pool Party, Whisper White, Yellow and white base FMS
Stamps = Zoo Review
Inks = Black Archival, So Saffron, Pool Party, and Smoky Slate
Tools = Big Shot and Nestabilities
Extras = 3D Pads and computer generated sentiment

Hope to be back soon

Lion in the Grass!

My card today has a masculine feel to it

The Lion was stamped and masked with a Post it so that extra grasses could be stamped to the rear and sides of him. I then used my Aqua Painter to colour the background and lions body.The sassy sentiment adds a bit of fun ( I hope!)

I'm entering my card into 3 challenges

Clean and Simple with this sketch.

Fab Friday have these colours,

and Make My Monday want

"One for the Boys!"

Card = Whisper White, Pistachio Pudding and White base FMS
Stamps = Zoo Review, Wetlands and Sassy Salutations
Inks = Black Archival, Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar, and Sahara Sand
Tools = Big Shot, Framelets, Aqua Painter, and Post It
Extras = 3D Pads

During half term I did some crafting with my niece and least they had their mojo's and this is what they came up with

They designed their own Mother's Day cards, even decorating the insides

Next time I'll show you the present they made

Trio Of Roses

Today, as I'm still struggling to find my mojo, I went to my friends for coffee and crafting, and here is what I made

I'm entering it into three challenges:

CAS Colours and Sketches have this sketch,

Dynamic Duos have green plus a choice,

and Less is More want to see 

My roses were stamped in pink and then with green to add the detail, fussy cut, and placed with leaves on 3D pads for dimension. I hope the round shape of the roses fits the LIM theme?.

Card = Whisper White and White base FMS
Stamps = Stippled Blossoms, Papillon Potpourri, and Apothecary Art
Inks = Gumball Green, Strawberry Slush, Crumb Cake, and Black
Tools = Stamp-a-ma-jig, Elegant and Bitty Butterfly Punches
