My Crafty Saturday


It is the week before finals, so that means lots of crafty time for me, as I hang with my daughter, helping her stay on task.  I have one more card for this week's Lil Inkers Sunny Days Challenge, and it is another birthday gift.  Rachel's friend requested card making supplies for her birthday, after playing with me in my craft room last summer.  Well, of course I am always happy to corrupt--I mean provide guidance--to a young crafter.  

I was inspired by the clouds, sunshine and rainbow in the inspirational picture.  I used my new Card Hanger Die to decorate the gift bag, that I filled with some stamping supplies to get this young lady started.  I ordered a few $5 sets and ink cubes from PTI, and supplemented that with some pre-cut folded card bases and stamped die cuts that she can color.  Here is what was in the bag:

My next card is for this week's CAS-ual Fridays CFC103:  Congratulations.  Great timing, since I need to increase my stash of this kind of card.  I used the colors from this week's ColourQ cQc #191 for my card.  I was inspired by this card of Debbie's to make a sequined shaker card.  (My silver sequins are my grey).

JJ Bolton was kind enough to send me a stamp set of my choice for playing in a little contest she was running on her blog.  I picked Bonjour, and this is the first card I made with that set.  I used the colors of this week's Color Throwdown CTD244.  The colors are showing up very dark in the photo--I used SU Tempting Turquoise, PTI Hibiscus Burst and Harvest Gold, and Memento Grey Flannel ink.  I covered all the colored parts with Glossy Accents, and colored the centers with a glitter pen.

My last card for today uses this week's Dynamic Duos DD#55 colors and the sketch at Seize the Birthday STB18

That's it for me today.  Please come back tomorrow--I'm sure I'll have more.
