Fusion – Galaxy Challenge

Hey Everyone

I challenged myself this weekend to clean my craft room so I would have some idea of just how much craft stuff I have in my room.  I’ve lost a stamp set, and quite possibly my dog, so it’s essential I get it in to order.  I failed my clean up challenge as I made this card instead.  I will try and clean my room tomorrow…..

The card I made is for a cool challenge at Fusion Card Challenge .

I’ve chosen to use both the sketch and the inspiration pic for my card.

We dream at night, right? This starry themed DSP from Twinkle Twinkle DSP made me think of dreams. So I figured Follow Your Dreams Bundle was the perfect choice for my card.  Also, I have no alien/space type stamp sets, so a dreamcatcher was all I had to go with…..

The dreamcatcher in the background is stamped with Smoky Slate Ink. I ran the image and my framelit through the bigshot to cut the image out.  I then took some Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock and cut out the smaller dreamcatcher. I layered this diecut over the stamped image and stuck them together. For the centre of the catcher, I added a tiny Artisan Pearl.  I stamped three feathers in Pool Party, Night of Navy and Lemon Lime Twist Inks and adhered them to the side of the catcher with some Pool Party Bakers Twine.

The intricate circle to the side of my dreamcatcher is also cut with framelits from Chase Your Dreams Framelits Dies.  For this, I used Pool Party Cardstock.  I then stamped the row of flowers and gave them a very light watercolour with Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party Inks – to keep with the same colour theme.

I added some strips of Whisper White and Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock under my sentiment.  I keep all my cut offs for occasions just like this. It always feels good when you can use them up instead of throwing them away.

Oh and don’t worry about the dog.  She appeared from my messy space once she got hungry! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by.

Freshly Made Sketches #348

Hey Everyone

I am always thrilled when it’s Wednesday. Mainly because we get to play along with a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, but also because I’m closer to the weekend and that means craft room time!

Our sketch hostess this week is Jennifer Brum.  If you haven’t been over to her blog, you need to so you can see her gorgeous cards.  But first, take a look at her wonderful sketch:

In my last Stampin’ Up! order I received Follow Your Dreams Bundle.  The dream catcher is cut with my Chase Your Dreams Framelits Dies and has two layers – one in Whisper White and one in Silver Foil.  The feathers are also cut from the dies in this Framelit set.  I initially cut and stuck down a Silver Foil sentiment, but felt it didn’t stand out enough from the background, so I then cut one in Basic Black Cardstock and offset it slightly from the Silver Foil to create a silver shadow.  I like how the sentiment stands out more now and ties in with the black feather.

The designer series paper squares are from a pack that I just cracked open and am already loving called Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper.   The papers in this pack are sooooooo pretty and I can’t wait to create a baby card using some of these papers.

Here’s my card:

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created gorgeous cards that will definitely inspire you. Pop over to the challenge and take a look.

Thanks for stopping by.
