Fusion Card Challenge - Cheese & Wine...

Hey,

Welcome to another fantastic Fusion Card Challenge.

This time we have 'Cheese & Wine for you! As always both the sketch and the inspiration image are awesome.

Which will you try?

I loved both, so I fused them!

I was inspired by the wine bottles. I have this amazing set of stamps by Creative Expressions that my bestie gave me. They are all sentiments and they are hilarious. I thought the one I chose to use paired really well with the lady by Unity Stamp Co.

The paper is another digital paper by Little Butterfly Wings and I printed it off and cut it down to suit the sketch.

This is going to make a hilarious birthday card for a friend!

Make sure you check out all the rest of the inspiration by the DT over at the Fusion challenge blog, and play along with your own creation! When playing along you may use the sketch OR the photo to inspire your makes. OR, if you are feeling adventurous, you can fuse them together (see what I did there!).

Can't wait to see your makes. 

Challenge ends on August 16th.

Retro Rubber Blog Challenge #188 - Anything Goes..



Hey,

Welcome to another fun Retro Rubber challenge.

This time it's everyone's fave 'Anything Goes'.


The amazing animal print die on my card, is new and I found it in a local Tuesday Morning for $2! It is by Momenta. The minute I saw it, I knew it would play nicely with one of my fave stamps by Ellen Hutson 'Brave Hearted' that I have had since 2020.

Super easy card to make, just die cut the background, stamp, colour and cut the lion and his crown. And then I stamped and fussy cut the sentiment, so it looks like it is coming out of his mouth.


What golden oldies will you use for your Anything goes? Be sure to pop over to Retro Rubber and get inspired by the things the DT have made.

Challenge ends August 12th.

Don't forget to tell us the age of your stamp, that is part of the fun of our challenge and please only enter 10 challenges including Retro Rubber.

Catherine Pooler - Mug Shots...


Hello!

I cannot resist a mug stamp, because IRL I LOVE mugs and it's a good job I have hubby to rein me in, otherwise we would have a bejillion of them.

This great set by Catherine Pooler 'Mug Shots' has gotten so much use since I got it last year. I love pairing it The Rabbit Hole designs Caffeinated sentiments set.

These cards are pretty similar, just a bit of ink blending to anchor the mugs, because they are so pretty they need to shine!




I think the Corgi mug above is actually my fave!


Hope you enjoyed these simple, elegant beauties.

Colorado Craft Co - Happy New Year Mice...


Hello!

I love Colorado Craft Co stamps. I am not a big fan of mice IRL, but they make them SO cute.

This set is called 'Happy New Year' and what I really love about it, is that it is one long stamp that comes with x2 dies, so you get 2 cards in one

I kept these super simple, as I really wanted the mice to shine. They were both coloured with distress inks and a paintbrush (I don't like aquabrushes).

And I added the cheeky Tim Holtz snarky stickers for a bit of fun.

Fusion Card Challenge - Beach Tiers..


Hey,

Welcome to another fun Fusion Card Challenge.

This time we have 'Beach Tiers' for you! As always both the sketch and the inspiration image are awesome.

Which will you try?

I loved both, so I loosely fused them!

I started by rotating the sketch, as I thought it would work with my image better. The pretty beachy paper is digital and by Allison Pennington, I LOVE her digital kits, I use them a lot in my digital scrapping. I didn't want to hide too much of the paper, so I used a piece of vellum for the other strip.

The cute girl is one of my fave from My Favourite Things 'Beach Cutie', the sentiment in the photo made me smile and this set came with that sentiment, so I got to use it here!

The card has left for my bestie, as we are beach girls..

Make sure you check out all the rest of the inspiration by the DT over at the Fusion challenge blog, and play along with your own creation! When playing along you may use the sketch OR the photo to inspire your makes. OR, if you are feeling adventurous, you can fuse them together (see what I did there!).

Can't wait to see your makes. 

Challenge ends on August 2nd.
