MFT Colour Challenge #170 - Take Two

 Hello again,

Another day, another card for MFT.  This is my second card for their colour challenge, using their latest sketch which I flipped so I could fit in the sentiment:








Lots of MFT products on this one - Stitched Cloud Edges, Circle Celebration Background, Radiating Rays Stencil, Grassy Edges Stencil, Bring Out the Sunshine and Itty Bitty Basics

Enjoy your day!

My Favourite Things - Camp Create 2021 Spectacular Shakers

Hello inkers,

MFT are holding their annual Camp Create  and the first challenge is to create a shaker card:

 












I don't often make shaker cards - I find them a bit fiddly and time consuming but it's a lot easier using a Rectangle Shaker Pouch  and Rectangle Peek a Boo Die.  I made a snowy background and added a couple of Sweet Holiday Penguins which I've coloured using the colours from Colour Challenge #170. Definitely not the first colours I'd think of for a Christmas card but the orange makes a nice change from  the traditional red and green!

Happy stamping!

Lawn Fawn Challenge: Fun With Food

Hello folks,

Lawn Fawn have a food themed challenge happening this month so I pulled out their Sweet Smiles set to create this card:





We've had another extension to our current lockdown in Sydney- in fact I'm beginning to feel like one of these little gumballs cooped up inside my house for weeks on end.

This one's also going over to The Paper Players for Ann's sketch challenge.

Happy stamping!

Clean and Simple Geometrics

Hello again,

Here's a very CAS card for The Paper Players' Clean and Simple challenge featuring bees. Any excuse to ink up Your Next Stamp's Honey Bee:




With its geometric honeycomb in the background I'm popping it over to Addicted to CAS too!

Happy stamping!

MFT Colour Challenge #169

Hello inkers,

I can't let the week go by without joining in with MFT's colour challenge:

 





I just can't get enough of these old folks - maybe it's my age! This fella's from Festive Old Friends set against a background of MFT patterned papers, polaroid shaker frame, die-namics flag dies and a Wood Plank stamped panel.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas in July

 Hello bloggers,

I've never made a 'twinchie' card before so I've had a bash at AAA Cards' latest challenge to create a card where everything has to be contained in a 2 inch area:





I chose to do the optional twist of Christmas in July. The problem wasn't the image but the sentiment and finding one small enough to fit! 

This one's also going over to Less is More's Christmas in July challenge.

Happy stamping!

Time Out Challenge #192 - Guest Designer

Hello again,

I'm thrilled to be Guest Designer over at Time Out this week - they have a great new challenge for you with the inspiration word 'hungry:'






Time to ink up those food inspired stamps of yours and create a card good enough to eat. I used Poppy Stamps' Donut What I'd Do with a simple stencilled background to add some texture. 

This week's challenge is sponsored by Lawn Fawn so with the chance of winning some LF goodies, there's no excuse for not joining in! 

Happy stamping!
