Elephant Birthday

Hi there. There is anew challenge beginning at The Alphabet Challenge. This time I am the host and have chosen the theme for the letter ‘E’ as being ‘Earthbound Animals’. Here is my card:

I use the ‘Color Layering Elephant’ stamp set from Hero Arts to produce this quite CAS card – the splash of rainbow colour as a layer making it quite playful I think.

The sentiments are both from the same stamp set, and I like the scripty look to these.

I hope you can come and join us for this challenge – there is some fabulous inspiration makes from the Design Team and you have until the 18th June to share your creations.

I look forward to seeing you in our gallery. xx

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Birthday card for dad

Hello everyone. It’s been a week since I last posted, as I have been busy, busy, busy. You know I went to the Altenew day in Daventry last Saturday, especially if you follow me on Instagram – I sent a couple of photos of that day. Absolutely brilliant, and great meeting at the team and fellow enthusiasts.

When I arrived home, I still had my Ikea purchases to put together, and then sort out my craft room – I’m nearly there – but then I was at work the rest of the week. As most of the stuff I had to sort out was on my craft table, it wasn’t until today that I had even a little smidgen of space to be able to create…….that table is still a work in progress – but I had to put this card together for my dad.

He is 80 tomorrow……80……which means I am getting older too……time flies…..! He had some health issues this year, but he is brilliant at the moment.

I thought I would add a little quirkiness with the elephant, and a little glitter with the embossing powder, just because I can.

I followed the current sketch challenge from CAS Colours and Sketches for the layout, though I did flip and rotate the sketch.

The little red balloon was attached to the elephant with a drawn blue string. The word ‘dad’ is die cut several times using the Altenew bold alphabet die (my capitals set is with my sister in Canada until she arrives here with them……goodness knows when!!!), then¬† stacked together for some dimension, with the top letters embossed with glittery white from WOW!.

Hopefully, I can continue to sort out my craft room, and craft at the same time, as there is a lot of inspiration out there I am wanting to use for cards.
