LeighSB's Spring Blog Hop 2021- Day 25 - March 31st

  This is my final post for

 LeighSB Designs spring-blog-hop-2021


This is my Day 25 on March 31st!

Once again I am using

You have already seen these two:


I am using it again today on an ATC.


Recipe:
  1. Dark red rectangle 2.5 by 3.5 inches.
  2. Background - see below.
  3. Image printed ATC size this time, coloured with markers and cut out.
  4. Sentiment stamped in Archival using a stamp from Joy Clair's Easter Set.


This week I decorated a large background to go in a star shaped frame.
 (This was leading from a Tracy Scott workshop some while ago).
I cut the star shape from this leaving some pieces that I thought would make good ATC backgrounds. I thought the shapes were a bit Easter eggy!


It will link this ATC to LeighSB's Linky



What's on your workdesk #617

                WOYWW           

Wednesday again so I am linking to the Stamping Ground today.

Here's my desk picture for WOYWW 617!


My messy area in the utility room...
I was having great fun having a go at part one of Wanderlust Week 13 - and playing with the technique...
The left hand side happened as I went along...


The right hand side uses more of the steps. You may be able to see all the foil that ended up on my desk...


It is based on using a Gelli plate and a photo. This one is of My Mum many years ago... 
I am now on Technique Two but I will show you that next week all being well...

I finished off Week 11 and Week 12's Wanderlust:



I have been making various cards and ATCs over the week but they are all on my blog if you would like to scroll down.



Other than that a couple of pictures from the Australian Botanic Garden near Cranbourne.


Can you see the bandicoot?


Hoping you are all keeping well... 
Happy WOYWW !!

 

Addicted to Stamps and more - Christmas Challenge #402

Here's my Christmas project...for the Challenge #402 at Addicted to Stamps and More

This is a slimline card, used landscape.
Working directly onto the card blank and using Stampin Up's Tree Angle Set, masking and Versafine Clair Verdant, I stamped the tree collection. 
Versafine Clair - is very juicy - you may notice that I managed to get ink everywhere!


I added the sentiment - a stamp from Happy Little stampers and some penwork using a Micron pen.


 Hope you will enter the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge! Do hop over to see the fabulous inspiration from my team-mates!

Almost forgot - this is my entry for Rudolph Days!!!

Happy Crafting!

Butterfly Challenge - K is for Kite Fold Version 11


This is a Kite fold card - the current theme for Mrs A's Butterfly Challenge  and I will link the card there. I have used Kite fold, Kombu Green and butterflies and hope this counts...

 Mrs A gives instructions for Kite fold cards here and the challenge has the following associated wheel. 

This is variation 11. 




The wooden butterflies were part of a prize from Mrs A!

Open the kite and there is space for a message message.


The patterned paper I used was a double sided one from Stampin Up. I couldn't decide which to use so I made my card 'ambidextrous'!


The sentiment is a stamp from a set by Joy Clair, Happy Easter, stamped in black on some of the yellow card and trimmed.
I added faux stitching with a Micron pen around everything!

I always think of March having windy weather - kite flying weather - and so I am also linking this to

 Mrs A gives instructions for Kite fold cards here with the challenge has the following associated wheel.
