I've had a great weekend - got a bit of crafting done after doing all my housework including cleaning and tidying my utensils drawer....
I undertook Ally's challenge at StampNation... she gave each of those taking part the choice of two older challenges to take part in... I got #83 Sponging and Sparkle or #168 Waffle Flower inspiration. I chose to do #83 after watching Catherine's video from 2013.
I used Catherine Pooler Designs Yay Stripes stamped in Altenew Mocha ink and stamped the Penny Black flower with Espresso ink. I coloured it with Touchnew markers and added glue and Diamond Dazzle glitter to the flowers. The sentiment is a NZ stamp company one.. Rubbadubbadoo.
And this morning I got up early at 7.00am to take part in the Hero Arts Flickr group 90 mins scramble. LaVon set us a challenge to use a Diagonal on our card. I decided to use a curvy diagonal using The All Occasions Embossing folder
My second one for the scramble used a more traditional diagonal - masked off part of the card
This one used the Holly Leaves from an older Hero Arts set stamped in Hero Arts Green Fields ink. The red berries were stamped in Altenew ink. A very quick card.
And because I had a piece of the embossing left and my Hero Arts stamps out I made another Christmas card
I added the red panel to the bottom of a white base and then stamped and die cut the sentiments from the Peace cut and die set. I finished with a silver glittered die cut dove. This die was a freebie last Christmas that had never been used.
Thank you for taking the time to visit and for making it to the end of this long post....
