FUSION - Gratitude

Have you seen a missing week - I hope you have because I lost one! Sat down to do this fortnights FUSION card and realised that somewhere between last fortnight and this, I lost a week! May have something to do with hubby's new job, daughters final exams at highschool and sons birthday perhaps! Regardless, here is my card for this fortnight's FUSION. I do hope you can play along!

Taking inspiration from this super versatile sketch and gorgeous inspiration photo this week, I re-purposed some background paper I had originally created for my last FUSION card to cut out some more gorgeous Autumn leaves from Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves set to create an Autumn wreath. This is paried with a gorgeous Sweet Stamp Shop stamped greeting and Winnie and Walter diecut Thanks atop some super cute patterned paper from my stash. 

Hop along to the FUSION site to play along, and while you are there make sure you check out some more fabulous inspiration from the FUSION Design Team...


Hope you can join in the fun this fortnight @ FUSION.

Can't wait to see what you create!

Fusion Falling Leaves...

Joining in a little late this fortnight, but still plenty of time to join in the fun @ FUSION. FABulous photo and sketch this fortnight!

I used a combination of Dylusions and Perfect Pearl Copper sprays to create the background sheet I then diecut with Neat and Tangled Autumn Leaves and paired with this just perfect Basic Grey background paper, Lil Inkers photo frame diecut and Stampendous sentiment.

Hop along by the fabulous FUSION blog and the gorgeous DT Gals blogs for some more amazing inspiration...

Winnie & Walter Rainbows for World Card Making Week...

 



Had such fun inking up and making rainbows for the WInnie and Walter World Card Making Day challenges. Created one for the Winnie and Walter Rainbow Challenge with Lea, then couldn't help myself but use the reverse scraps to make a second card to also play along with Winnie and Walter Variations with Shay.

Created using Winnie and Walter's The Party stamp set, In a Word: Happy Cutaway and Essentials: Audrey Cutaways. The rainbow background was created using Tim Holtz Distressed Inks in Festive Berries, Spiced Marmalade, Squeezed Lemonade, Shabby Shutters, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Dusty Concord. 

Also playing along with Seize the Birthday and CASology Odd Challenge (odd number of words, letters in "happy", balloon and colours too!).

FUSION Striped Wreath

Super fun FUSION this fortnight! As we do not traditionally celebrate Halloween here in Australia, I decided to create a Christmas card, (especially as it is only 10 weeks til Christmas - eek!). I combined the fabulously versatile FUSION sketch and the lime green and striped wreath inspiration, using Winnie and Walters Seasons Tweetings stamps and Heidi Swapp patterned papers. Pop dotted to emphasise the layers.

Fusion - Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

A little late but a very apt theme from FUSION for me this fortnight! This Lil Inkers sentiment is super special with more than a few ups and downs - especially hubby coming off his bike and fracturing his femur. I have been on carers leave looking after him managing to stuff my back in the process, before I start my brand new job next week. But I know that together we CAN weather any storm :)

Die-cut layers of cloud created using Mama Elephant stitched cloud die and Lily Bee patterned papers, together with this super cute Neat and Tangled rays stamped in Momento Luxe Dandelion then overstamped with a light layer of Momento Luxe Morocco, and finished with a button from my stash.

Fusion Falling Flowers...

Inspired by the gorgeous combo of flowers and teacup in this fortnights FUSION inspiration photo. Wanted to play along with the fabulous Coffee Loving Cardmakers Fall Card Hop, so kept the card colours in Autumn tones. Created by combining My Minds Eye "Notable" patterned papers together with this cute Prima "Coffee Break" Journaling notecard, and double diecut Mama Elephants "Cup of Wishes" in burnt orange then pop dotted the top floral layer.
