Mojo Monday #410 & Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #96

Hey Everyone

I was able to spend a little bit of time in my craft room this afternoon – this doesn’t seem to happen a lot lately but I’m hoping this will change as my son’s footy season finished yesterday! I get my Saturday’s back!!!  The card I’ve made is for two challenge – Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge.

Cardabilities #88 & Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #88

Hey Everyone

Instead of doing a bit of Christmas shopping today – I made a couple of cards….. My excuse for not going shopping is that the shops are too busy at the moment (although how would I know if I haven’t been shopping once yet?).  I will make the effort and go sometime during the week.

This card I’ve made is for two challenges – Cardabilities Sketch Challenge and Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge.  Here are their inspiration pics:

Create with Connie & Mary Challenge #323 & Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #86

Hey Everyone

I hope you’re all having a fabulous weekend.  It’s Sunday evening here in Australia and we have had the most beautiful weather over the weekend.  I almost didn’t to leave the sun to head into my craft room.  The card I’m sharing today is for the sketch challenge at Create with Connie & Mary and the colour challenge at Inspired by Stamping.

These are colours that you probably don’t expect for Christmas, but I thought I’d give them a go. I’ve used Stampin’ Up!s Ornamental Pine and the sentiment is from a retired set called Tiny Tags.  Here’s my card:

The Deconstructed Sketch #164 & Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #85

Hey Everyone

After a bit of a slow start to my Sunday morning I headed out to my craft room to get myself inspired to create a card.  Sometimes cards just come together with ease and this was one of those cards.  The challenges I used to inspire me are The Deconstructed Sketch and Inspired by Stamping

I absolutely love this sketch of Jen’s. The layers are so me! The Stampin’ Up! stamp sets I’ve used are Happy Easter (don’t think I’ve actually used these tulips for an Easter card) and my sentiment is from a retired set called Simply Sketched. Here’s my card:

DS164 & IBSIC85

I got on a bit of a roll and even created a second card (which is a bit unusual for me!).  Must’ve been a bit gee’d up after a chat to a friend on Facebook this morning. ❤  I’ll be back later with that card once I fix it up a bit.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cardabilities #100 & Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #82

Hey Everyone

My mum had a birthday on the weekend so to get me inspired to create her card I used the layout from the sketch at Cardabilities and combined it with the colour challenge at Inspired by Stamping.  Here are their inspiration pics:

The flap at the top of the sketch gave me the idea to create a pocket so I could stash some money in there as part of her present (just in case she wanted to buy some Stampin’ Up! products!). The flowers I’ve used are from Everything Eleanor and the leaves are from Summer Silhouettes.  I’ve added a bit of washi from Stampin’ Up!s Tape It and the sentiment is from Express Yourself.  The honeycomb background is something I learnt how to create at convention.  Something I’ve never done before is ink up an embossing folder and used it as a stamp.  I love this effect so I know I’ll be doing it again.

Hey Everyone

I’m back with another card and this one I’m sharing is for two challenges – the sketch challenge at Mojo Monday and the colour challenge at Inspired by Stamping.  Here are their inspiration pics:

It feels like it’s been ages since I’ve used Early Espresso.  It was once my go-to colour but Sahara Sand has taken over that role now.  I love this new little matching flower stamp set and punch from Stampin’ Up! called Petite Petals – it takes no time at all to whip up a card.

The Card Concept #7, The Deconstructed Sketch #144 & IBSIC #80

Hey Again Everyone

I’m back with my second post tonight and this time it’s for The Card Concept.  Our challenge for you is to create a card with a butterfly theme – easy peasy right?

I found a retired Stampin’ Up! set called Nature Walk that had a butterfly in it that reminded me of the butterfly in the inspiration pic.  The layout for my card is from this weeks Deconstructed Sketch and the colours I’ve used are from the colour challenge at Inspired by Stamping.

Mojo Monday #329 & IBSIC #73

Hey Everyone

The card I’m sharing today is inspired by this gorgeous shabby creation by Julie Gearinger.  I love how Julie has used the vintage sign from Stampin’ Up!s Fan Fair DSP as the main focus on her card so when I saw that the colour challenge at Inspired by Stamping was Pink, Red & Cream – I decided to use the same piece of DSP.  I then unintentionally covered it up with my spray of flowers, but you can see the edges of it 🙂  The second challenge at Inspired by Stamping is to create a project using a tag – so I have created a tag and placed it on my card.

The layout for my card comes from this weeks Mojo Monday sketch.  This is such a versatile sketch that I’ll be using again.

At the start of my holiday I mentioned that I had been asked to create two cards for one of my friends at work – a 30th birthday card for her sister (click here if you’d like to see it) and a 60th birthday card for her mum.  I think I might offer her this one for her mum.  Do you think this card works for a 60th birthday?

Mojo Monday #328 & IBSIC #74

Hey Everyone

I’m really late with my card for Mojo Monday this week – but better late than never.  I’m not sure how this has happened but I am making less cards on holidays than what I make when I work full time.  I can’t even tell you what I’ve been up to – I’m simply enjoying doing bugger all!  I definitely could live this life.

Here’s Mojo Monday’s sketch this week:

Mojo328sketch

I’ve teamed the sketch challenge with the colour challenge over at Inspired by Stamping.  I love this soft colour combo:

You’re probably going to look at this card and say exactly what I did – a fern frond doesn’t go with rolled roses, but hopefully the recipient of this card won’t know the difference.  The Stampin’ Up! colours I’ve used are Very Vanilla, Blushing Bride and Coastal Cabana.  The designer series paper come from a Stampin’ Up! pack called Afternoon Picnic.
