Yep – you read right – I’m starting a new job on Monday 11th December. After 7 years at Suncorp I’m moving on to develop my career. I’m off to Australia Post as a Capability consultant looking after their on-boarding and induction programs. I’m super excited but I also know that I’m going to be super busy so am making the most of my weekend to get my craft on!
My friend Michelle from Seashell Creations popped over yesterday and I borrowed a few of her gorgeous floral stamps, one of which I used on this first card.
The flower is from SSS called Floral Bliss which I have coloured with my Stampin Up Blends. I’m entering this card over on the MUSE #245 challenge. The card inspiration is from Anita Bowden. I loved the flower on the edge fussy cut out to show the underlying card base.
The next card is using a super cute set by Apple Blossom called Christmas Gnomes. The background and sentiment for the gnomes were free digi images from Whimsy Stamps. I think the snowy scene qualifies as rather stormy – don’t you?
I’m entering this card for the current CASology #278 challenge – Stormy.
My next card is a card I’ve made for a friend I haven’t seen in a while and I just wanted to say ‘hey’
I used a stamp set from Unity Stamps May 2014 KOTM called Hey Girl. I stamped and embossed her then water-colour her and fussy cut her out and popped her and the sentiment up on a left over bot of misc. DSP.
I’m entering her in over on the current Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #248 – Heidi’s Feminine “Anything Goes”.
My final card for today is another Christmas card. I used my alcohol inks in Citrus and Clover for the background piece and then I stamped in Stazon the globe and sentiment from Unity Stamps KOTM October 2016 Holiday Hugs and KOTM September 2015 Our Heart To Yours. I added a bit of left over solver glimmer paper for the finishing touch.
I’m pretty please with how this came out and think it fits the current challenge over at Less Is More #358 Candles or something depicting light which I think a globe does.
Well thanks for looking and have a great rest of your weekend.
