Hello everyone! It’s March madness around here this week with the kids being off school. What to do to keep them busy (and give me a bit of crafting time!). Today we invited some friends over and baked chocolate chip cookies so they have full tummies and are playing together nicely. Time for a quick post.
My first of two cards is for the Out of a Hat Challenge this week. The theme is friendship. We all need them and I feel so blessed to have such great ones – crafty blog friends included! Here’s to you…
I just received a new CTMH stamp set entitled Country-Born. The sunflowers in the milk can came from that set and I coloured it in with alcohol ink markers. I then cut it out and popped it up on a background cut from Buzz and Bumble paper. The side of the card is stamped with hexagons in Bamboo ink from the Honeycomb stamp set. I ran a paper border down the edge of the hexagons and added a faux stitch with a brown maker. No honeycomb is complete without a bumblebee, so I added my favourite bee stamp from the Jardin stamp set. To finish it off I added the sentiment flag in the bottom corner.
My second card is for last week’s Heart2Heart challenge. The theme was spring so I thought rays of sunshine for this one.I used the burlap pennant from Patterned Pennants for the sun’s rays. The sun and air balloons were cut out with the Artiste cartridge and stamped with images from the April stamp of the month – My Sunshine. I stamped the large air balloon in several different colours cut out the strips and popped them up for dimension.
