Hey Friends!!

Just popping in with some cards I created for some challenges. I went back to work this week so I do not have a ton of crafting time but I was able to create a few during some down time.

My first card I created for this month's Altenew's August 2023 Inspiration Challenge. I am always wanting to do this monthly challenge but somehow I never get around to it!!

I created this card with the Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Always Sunshine and a sentiment from the Altenew Ornamental Bliss Stamp Set. I decided that a sympathy card would suit this challenge perfectly!!!

I really tried to get the colors right but when the inks dried, the inks became more aqua then I intended.

The middle color looked more orange to me when I was creating this card too. If I don't have the light on in my craft room sometimes the colors show up different in the light. I am going to include it anyway into this challenge. 

My second card I am entering into this week's Time Out Challenges #245. Below is the badge and I interpreted this challenge a bit differently than I usually do.

Once again, I used the Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Always Sunshine and a sentiment from the Altenew Ornamental Bliss Stamp Set. When I think of colorful, the first thing that comes into my mind is flowers.

I used pinks, blues, greens and yellows on this card. Instead of shading the embossed images in the background, I chose to leave them completely white.

I love how this came out and cannot wait to have a chunk of time to be able to create with this set again.

My last card I am entering in to Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. The theme this week is DELICIOUS DRINKS.

I chose to pull out my NEW Waffle Flower Postage Collage Dies, the Postage Collage Stamps and the Coloring Postage Collage Stencils  as the jump off for my card.

I then used Pretty Pink Posh's Summer Drinks Stamps and Dies. 

I loved how this came out so much that I created a second card!!!

Aren't these so cute????

I didn't use any foam tape on these but used the dies to cut out white backgrounds to give the stamps some dimension.

I colored all the images in using Copic Markers and added a Mama Elephant Happy Birthday. I have a bunch of "little" sentiments from a bunch of companies and they match PERFECTLY with this Postage set!!!

Well, that is all from me today. I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by. Have a FABULOUS Saturday!!
