Playing with new stuff!

Hi everyone!

Happy Sunday morning to you all! I hope you’re having a great weekend.

It’s been ages since I touched my craft supplies! I’ve been travelling like never before in my life. Major changes lie ahead of me and it’s going to be very stressful. Oh no, I’m not pregnant!! 😀 Major relocation  to a different city happening.

So, I hadn’t had time to play with my new goodies for a while but I couldn’t let this go any longer. So I sat down yesterday and made four cards to submit in various challenges. YAY!!

I am submitting all the four cards to four different challenges hosted by Winnie and Walter as a part of World Card Making Day. How could I miss the fun?! There is just over an hour to submit but I’ll make it this time!

The first card is for Kelly’s ‘Unexpected stamping’ challenge. We are required to use a stamp in an unexpected way. Wondering what I used in an unexpected way??  Let me show you…. The stamps are from Mama Elephant- Carnival Cupcakes and In my heart.


So the cupcake doesn’t have to be eaten! It can make a pretty li’l girl’s dress! 🙂 I just love how this card turned out! I used Femme Frames die  and Pretty Pink Posh Stitched duo 2 die.

The circle images are from Winnie and Walter’s Big Bang Confetti stamp set. LOVE that set!

Also submitting this to Mama Elephant’s October challenge that is ‘Anything goes’ and Virginia’s View Challenge.

For the next card, I used Winnie and Walter’s ‘The write stuff- Picture Perfect’ stamp set. I stamped the ‘happy’ sentiment from the ‘Big, Bold and Happy’ stamp set in Memento ink in the back ground. I then stamped the small images from ‘Big Bang confetti’ stamp set to fill in the white space beteen the sentiments.

The camera image was stamped on a piece of card stock and paper pierced. Added washi tape on the card base and adhered the image to the base. Finished the card with some pretty enamel dots and the ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment.

Entering this to Lea’s ‘On trend’ challenge and Virginia’s View Challenge. Virginia’s card and the happy colors inspired me. 🙂

The next card uses Pretty Pink Posh’s Stitched duo 2 die. I LOVE this die set! SO many possibilities with it. I must confess that I’m not happy with this card. Too many colors and not my type.

To make this one I started out by stamping the images from Big Bang Confetti stamp set randomly on card base in different colors. I then die cut the panel and added to the base. Fussy cut the bold ‘happy’ sentiment and stuck on the die cut panel.

Entering this to Shay’s Patterned Play challenge.

For the last card, I used Altenew ‘Persian Motifs’ stamp set and and colored the images with prima colored pencils. The flowers were colored in Blush Pink and Peach. The leaves with gold pencil. Added gold enamel dots. Stamped the bol ‘Love’ sentiment from Winnie and Walter’s Big, Bold Confetti stamp set.

Submitting this to Gayatri’s color combo challenge.

I hope you like the cards. See you peeps!
