CAS Colours & Sketches #430

 Hi there Crafty Friends! It's time for another challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches and we have Holly as our host this month. She has given us a fun sketch to play with this week. 


I stamped the leaves with Zig Markers and coloured with Altenew Metallic Paint. I used an embossing folder on white card, trimming it down to fit the sketch and adhered the fussy-cut leaves and sentiment.
Stamps: Kaisercraft

Dragonfly Garden

 Hi there. I have been very busy making cards for DTs, but today I made a card for fun:) It was inspired by the pretty colours for this weeks Global Design Project Challenge.


I stamped the foliage with Altenew Ink and added more depth of colour to the centre image with a Zig Marker. The card was sponged with Distress and Altenew Inks.  The Dragonfly was stamped and shaded with Zig Markers and shimmer added with Nuvo Glitter Gloss Marker.

52 CHRISTMAS CARD THROWDOWN (july Stash)

   The fourth Saturday of each month at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is either a Stash or Technique challenge.

AndrejaM, our host decided to go for Stash this month and she wants to see 'Vellum on a Window Card'. 

                                  

I made a Shaker card, although it's a lot more subtle than a shaker with acetate.

I die-cut the Christmas Tree panel and adhered to the Vellum, added the sequins and
adhered on a sponged background. I used the co-ordinating die to emboss the middle white panel and matted with black card, then adhering to the white card base. 
To finish I added the die-cut birds and sentiment.
Dies: Delicate Pine Frame
Stamp: SSS Chunky Christmas


I hope you'll visit the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown blog to see what the rest of the team created with this theme and then be inspired to join in the challenge!

CAS Christmas Card, Colourful Butterflies and Sushi

 I have a few cards to share today. We are back in Lockdown, so crafting is the best way to spend my time. 


I'm getting in to the spirit of Christmas in July with this card. I stamped, coloured and fussy-cut  the snowman. Next I stamped all the other images and sentiments, colouring with Zig Markers.
Stamps: Hello Bluebird Frosty Friends, Colorado Craft Company Christmas Presents

I made a wash with Karin Markers and Cosmic Shimmer Powder. The Eucalyptus Wreaths were die-cut from a smooshed background. Next I stamped the butterfly, coloured with Karin markers and fussy-cut.  I added some glitter to the butterfly with a Nuvo Glitter Gloss Pen. To finish I stamped the sentiment.
Stamps: Stampin Up Butterfly Brilliance
Die: Alexandra Renke Eucalyptus Wreath

I have missed making butterfly cards, so I decided to make another one and revisited one of my fave Penny Black stamps. The image was stamped and coloured with Karin Markers and blended loosely with water.
