PARTY PUFFINS FOR FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES #493

I had a little play yesterday just because. 🙂

I pulled out the Party Puffin stamp set and created a card for the Freshly Made Sketches #493 challenge this week. It’s been a while since I have played.

This is the sketch to play along with.

Here is my card.

I coloured the puffins with the Stampin’ Blends. They were a lot of fun to colour.

The background piece is using the Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate.

Why not join in with the sketch yourself. Even if you don’t add it to the challenge it’s a great sketch to have a go at.

Head to the Freshly Made Sketches blog -> HERE.

If you need any of your stamping supplies and you are in Australia then I would love to assist you if you don’t have a demonstrator yourself. Drop me an email at jghayward@yahoo.com or phone 0439 844574.

Have a great day,

COLOUR INKSPIRATIONS #34 AND FRESHLY MADE SKETCHES #340

It’s a rainy cold day here today and what better way to spend it than stamping.  I thought I would indulge in a little challenge time.  For this card I combined 2 challenges; Colour Inkspirations #34 which I haven’t played along with for weeks, and Freshly Made Sketches #340 which I often follow their sketches but never actually enter it at the time.  So here is a double whammy. 🙂

                         

So here is my card I created.  The colours turned out a little softer than in the inspiration image.

On Shimmery White card I watercoloured 3 of the colours Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Pool Party.  The Basic Gray was the strips down the sides of the panel.  As I have been using some of the gorgeous Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Designer Series Paper and had it out I thought I would add that to the panel.  It is so delicate.  The sentiment is from Petal Palette.  I added a little copper dragonfly from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits. Also added some Copper Thread under the sentiment.

You can check out the other entries and why not play along too.

DRAGONFLY DREAMS FOR A SKETCH AND COLOUR CHALLENGE!

Two posts in one day! How about that.  I hadn’t intended to post again today but this afternoon I had a little play time and made a card for 2 challenges and need to post them before it is too late.  So here you go.

This card is for a Facebook colour challenge group I have just joined.  This is the Colour INKspirations.  The colour challenge this week is Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Daffodil Delight.  For this card I also played along with the Freshly Made Sketches #269 Challenge. Check the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches -> HERE. I have to say once you have colours to use and the sketch it doesn’t take that long to put a card together.

This was the final result.

The card is fairly straight forward.  To incorporate the Daffodil Delight I stamped the “spots” down the left hand side.  I find Daffodil Delight a hard colour to work with but managed to use this here.  I have used the set Dragonfly Dreams and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.

To create the Dragonfly:  The dragonfly was made in 2 steps so I thought I would tell you about it.  Firstly, stamp the dragonfly wings stamp onto Mint Macaron card with Mint Macaron ink then cut it out with the Dragonfly outline Thinlits.  Then cut a detailed dragonfly out from Bermuda Bay card.  Adhere these both together by sticking just the body part together so you can raise the wings up.

To add a little sparkle I went over the Mint Macaron wings with the Wink of Stella pen and I added some Bermuda Bay sequins to finish the card off.

Here is a close up of the Dragonfly wings so you can see the sparkle.
