Bunnies on my Mind...

The last two weeks I've been making Easter cards using a Simon Says Stamp Set called My Kind of Peep. I didn't really get any of the sentiment though...it might be American Slang? but none of the sentiments were appropriate. So...at first I just printed a few sentiments out (I'll share these cards with you soon.) I then realised (lets call it a moment of clarity from a sleep deprived mother of three...) that I have at least TEN alphabet stamps and coordinating dies that allow me to make my own sentiment!

So using the Bunny from the SSS My Kind of Peep set and a few alphabet stamps (WPlus9, Sweet Stamp Shop, Paper Smooches) I made these two baby cards...



I really love the WPlus9 alpha set. I'm still making a few more cards using a combination of these stamps but I thought I'd share and remind you all to use those alphabet stamps!!! (Just in case you were having a sleep deprived - whoopsie kinda moment like me!)

Paper Players Challenge

I've been making Easter cards all week - but I got a little distracted when I saw the current Paper Players Challenge and realised the cute little Easter bunny themed stamp set (from Simon Says Stamp) that I was playing with would also make really cute baby cards...

Top Left Card: Entered into Scrapbook Boutiques Challenge.


I will finish then share my Easter cards now that this distraction is finished...

Hello, Beautiful...

So during the week I made a few cards using Lil' Inker Designs stamps and since I had the stamps and inks out I continued to make a few more over the weekend. 

I normally prefer to colour my images - but I have a rather large collection of 'solid' type stamps that until now I haven't used due to not enough ink colours or I just haven't been happy with the stamped result. I finally invested in a few sets of ink pads (Gina K, Delicata Metals Pack and Altenew). I then bought some Neenah Solar White (Smooth) card (which I noticed had positive reviews on several facebook craft groups) and I've had my MISTI for awhile now and knew that this would eliminate any stamping mistakes I made. I'm super happy with these cards - they're simple. I just wanted to have fun with some different colour combinations and test out my new inks and paper!



 Above card entered into Addicted to CAS - Seaside challenge (Ink Colours: Ocean Mist, Turquoise Sea, and Blue Lagoon)



Did you get much card making done over the weekend?

Reminder that Craftie Cafe are having a design team call - they're pretty much the only online store in Australia (that I am aware of) that stock a good supply of Lil' Inker Design stamps and dies. Details on the call can be found here

Happy Crafting!

New Challenge...

New Challenge up on CAS(E) this sketch!

Here are my two cards based on this weeks sketch. Apologies for the darkness in my photos, if I take the photo too late in the afternoon I can't take advantage of the natural light - and I was too impatient to wait for tomorrow...


Above card entered into CASOLOGY challenge: Foliage




I'm using two Lil' Inker Stamps sets - Hello Beautiful and The Little Things.

Also entered into Simon Says Stamp: Bit O Green challenge, and Simon Says Stamp: Handmade Flowers challenge

Happy Crafting and Enjoy the Weekend!

Make your own background...

This week has been crazy busy! Sunday was Phoebe's baptism, Monday a public holiday...and I feel like I've done nothing all week but clean, cook and clean again! and....and...my house still looks messy! Plus side - we wont go hungry!

This week I did manage to make a few cards. I wanted to give my new Gina K inks a go, so after making a swatch sheet I got out some Lil Inker stamps and got creative. I created these with the intention of entering them in a few challenges (some of which I missed the deadline...ah well...). 

The first card is very feminine, purples, pink, and yellow. The second more masculine - monochromatic using shades of grey and black. The stamp set is Lil' Inkers - Hello Beautiful.






Both cards I managed to stamp off the edge which is CAS-ual Fridays current challenge. P.S They have a design team call which is open internationally. 

Happy Crafting!

Guest Designer for...

Today I am guest designing for CAS(E) this sketch!

I was a little nervous - as I generally don't do many sketch challenges. But when I got the sketch - it was fun and simple and there was so many ways to get inspired by it.

Here is the sketch:



Here are the cards. Yup! I made two cards!




Above card entered into The Flower Challange #6



Hope you can play along!
