Popping in today to share my make for the latest challenge at Unstampabelles here
Challenge #110: Animal Fun!
TWIST: Layer it Up!
Any animal you use – human or non-human – will fit this one
Just Remember please: NO STAMPS!
I’ve opted to make a punch art owl. Check out last weeks post to, owls seem to be a DT favourite!
I have had this punch art “recipe” in my ideas file for a long time, so long I have forgotten where I got it from – it is hand written on a cue card! If it is your idea thank you. Below are a few photos of the basic shapes I used. The small orange heart is used for the beak.
I popped my owl up on a stenciled background with some foam tabs for dimension along with a few die cut leaves.
If you have been following me for a while you know I am not a scrapbooker. However I do dabble in other areas, one of which is sewing and more specfically quilting. So for my take on the challenge I decided to use scraps to create a new journal cover for my quilt journal. I keep notes on the quilts I have made such as where I purchased the fabric, fabric quantities, block design/pattern and a finished pic of the quilt. How does this relate to lockdown? For most of last year I did continue to go to work in the city office upto the point when we were in stage 4 lockdown which was for 6 weeks however that ended up being about 3 months! In that time I spent a great deal of time watching webinars and using my time to create items for charity.
I used scrap pattern paper and stitched triangle dies to create this half squre triangle pattern. I then added the word “quilt” to create a new journal cover.
Here it is on the cover of my journal.
Now a few pics. One of my first journal entries followed by some of the many creations from 2020.
I have found myself with a little extra crafty time this week. That meant I could a) watch a youtube video or 2 b) actually follow through with one of those newly acquired crafty “must try” techniques that I plan to do however rarely complete!
And this month is anything goes! as long as there are no stamps! You can link up here
Here is my card for the challenge
I created a coloured background on watercolour paper as the base for my Stamplorations Clear Sticker. The panel was die cut with stitched dies, mounted on black cardstock and added to my card front with patterned paper, punched banners and sequins.
Today I am back to share some more recent card makes. And I have used loads of NBUS stuff!
I’ll start with this new stencil from Stamplorations. I added punched flowers to her hair and finished with liquid pearls. I remember seeing one of the DT add flowers and loved the result so I’ve CASed it. I used my new SU brushes to – these are huge brushes compared to the ones I have been using!
This next one is a wee 3″x3″ card using Jane’s Doodles Wild. Coloured with alcohol markers. I can see this hippo becoming a fav! Oh and more sponging.
A couple of “Cute Fruit” cards. I used my SU Stamparatus which makes making more than one quick and easy! Again the smaller card is 3″ x 3″.
For these next two cards I have used Stamplorations Bloomfully Sparkle with PTI Tag it #3 followed by Stamplorations Bloombully Thankful with PTI Tag it #12. Both are again 3″ x 3″ coloured with alcohol markers.
And lastly another card using Jane’s Doodles to the moon. The small stars are from WPlus 9 Unforgetable and the tied string is from Uniko Garlands Galore. I CASed this card too from one I saw on pinterest.
