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.

and Winter Wonderland's Anything Christmas Goes.

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.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow...

Had so much fun creating this card, using Heidi Swapp butterfly mask on Tim Holtz tissue paper, overlaid with Distress Oxides in a rainbow of colour. Freehand outlined around the butterflies after the mask was removed and added this gorgeous rub on from my stash.

Joined in a little late for FUSION, but this is where I had my inspiration.

Paris FUSION with Oxide Inks and MFT



Can't believe it has been a whole month since I posted! It's not that I haven't been busy crafting, just not busy posting my crafting efforts!

Had a great excuse to pop back in today though, back to join in the fun @ this fortnights FUSION. It's almost a year since we headed off to Paris in the Spring, so this fabulous FUSION inspiration was making me feel particularly nostalgic! Thought I'd do a Paris sunset rather than rain, so broke out my Tim Holtz Oxide Inks and this gorgeous MFT Paris Skyline and frame die cuts to play along this fortnight.
