Sunday Crafting

Hello!

I hope that you have been enjoying the easter weekend....the weather in the UK has been glorious :)  Even though I have been trying to tidy up in the garden, I have spent a bit of time in my craft room to keep cool and these are the cards that I have made:


I used my new Leafy Mandala stencil with some Nuvo glitter texture paste in peridot green and added a sentiment from MFT.  I shall link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where we have a spring mood board to inspire us.  I will also join in for a second time at CAS Stencil challenge where we are using embossing paste and at The Male Room Challenge where Anything Goes.

On my second card I used my new Confetti Sprinkles stencil to create a background for this Altenew cupcake.  The sentiment is from Reverse Confetti.


I shall link this card up at Seize the Birthday where Anything Goes.

I hope you like these cards - here are the stencils that I used:

Fancy Trellis Stencil

Hello!

Are you getting ready for the easter weekend?  It should be nice and warm here in the UK (for a change) so I can't wait to have a break and enjoy some sunshine :)  Today I have a couple of cards to share with you which feature a new stencil - Fancy Trellis.

I have been quite soft and delicate on my first card to play along at Less is More where the theme is to use subtle colours:


I inked the stencil up with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide and used it behind a circle aperture.  The die cut butterfly is from Concord and 9th and the sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  I shall also link up at Happy Little Stamper's die challenge where anything goes.

On my second card I inked the stencil through a circle aperture with Crushed Olive distress oxide and added a touch of shading around the edges of the circle.  I used my Boho Blooms stamp for the little cluster of flowers and a sentiment from Catherine Pooler.



I shall link up at Simon's Monday Challenge where the theme is Beautiful Blooms and at Inkspirational where the current challenge is to pop it up.  The cluster of flowers is popped up on foam pads to provide a bit of contrast to the trellis background.

The stencil and stamps are available in my store - www.funkyfossil.co.uk

Bright and Bold Birthday

Hello!

I hope that you have had a good weekend!  I am just popping in with a bright and happy birthday card using a new stencil that is in my store - Striped Fragments:



I simply masked off sections of the stencil and coloured them with different colour distress oxides.  The die cut sentiment is from My Favourite Things.

I shall link up at Seize the Birthday where Anything Goes and at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where we are making our own backgrounds rather than using designer papers.

This is the stencil that I used:


It is available to buy in my online shop - www.funkyfossil.co.uk

Honeycomb and Cogs

Hello,

Just stopping by with a few cards made using some of my stencils for a couple of fab challenges.  First up, I made this card for the CAS Stencil Challenge where we are using embossing pastes this month:



I simply masked of a stripe on the front of the card and inked it with Fossilised Amber distress oxide before using a gold embossing paste through my honeycomb stencil.  I combined the stencil with Reverse Confetti's sweet bee stamp and sentiment to complete this CAS design.




On this card I used gilding flakes with my Circuit Board stencil on grey cardstock.  I like the variegated effect of the flakes!  The sentiment is from MFT and I then painted and heat embossed some of my cog mdf embellishments to create a distressed look.  I shall link this card up at Time Out where we are using at least 2 embellishments on our designs and at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where we are creating our own backgrounds.  I shall also link up at Inkspirational where the challenge is to pop it up - the mdf embellishments add that extra dimension.

The products that I have used today are available to buy in my store - www.funkyfossil.co.uk:

Foxy Antics

Hello!

I am stopping by with a quick post to share a card that I have made with my Quick Brown Fox stamps and a few stencils:


I smooshed cardstock in to some distress inks to create a watercolour effect background and stencilled my Leafy Tree in the corners. I used the Round in Flowers stencil very lightly along the bottom of the panel to create a bit of visual texture.  I coloured the fox in with pencils and popped him on the card front running through the woods.

I shall link up at The Male Room Challenge where the theme is Spring and at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Animal Antics.  I shall also play along at Happy Little Stampers Watercolour Challenge where Anything Goes with the optional twist of Bright and at Seize the Birthday where the theme is Spring as well.

I hope you like this card.  Here are the products that I used to make it:


   

They are all available to buy in my store: www.funkyfossil.co.uk

Sunshine and clouds

Hello!

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend and, if in the UK, had a lovely Mothers Day!  I have spent the day with my sweet mum...it has been a wet day but we have crafted and laughed all day :) 

I have made a card inspired by both Inkspirational where the cue is Clouds and at Less is More where the challenge theme is Shine a Light.  This is made with 2 stencils:


I will link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge as well where Anything Goes.

I simply inked through clouds to create a cloudy sky and cut round the edge.  I popped the cloudy panel up over the stencilled sunrays to add some dimension.

I used a couple of stencils to create this card and they are both available to buy at www.funkyfossil.co.uk.  There is currently 15% off everything in store until midday on 1 April when you use the code MUM15.
