Good Sunday Morning Ladies,
Welcome to our first Sunday Challenge card Showcase of 2021, this is our favourite Blog day of the week, you all love seeing each others cards for inspiration as well as admiring each others work.
For me it's definitely inspirational, I love seeing how you all make the challenges work for the cards that you need to make. I am also so proud to share your work, a lot of our Challenge cards end up on Pinterest, I will be casually looking for a particular category and up will pop our Challenge cards which really makes me proud. I am so genuinely grateful that you all make that possible 🙏 ❤ XXX
So without further ado here are your amazing first challenge cards of 2021.........
Two amazing cards from Karen for the Sketch Challenge this week, these two cards are completely different to your original designs for this challenge 5 years ago.
Card 1: I made the flower one in late Jan19 so it obviously missed the deadline (I think) It’s a Wish Die with some blended colour in behind image and a totally stamped background
Sentiment is SueW
Card 2: The second I adapted a card I was doing
The image is a stamped DO using elastic bands and a StampinUp splodge stamp
The image and sentiment is SueW
The ribbon is supposed to replicate Chelsea colours It must be really cheap ribbon as it kept fraying that’s why I tucked it underneath and the footballs cut on ScanNCut
Thanks so much Karen for two amazing Challenge cards.
Oh Sonia straight in to 2021 with a fantastic 'Masculine ' Birthday card! Such a cute image, although that bear looks way to cute to be drinking beer! 🤣😉 You have some lovely Sentiment stamps in your collection my lovely.
The digi papers were purchased from The Lovely Studio. I love these as there are so many different colours to choose. James the Bear is also a digi image from LOTV. The stamped sentiment is from LOTV too. The hearts die cut from card in my stash.
Thank you so much for taking part in this weeks Sketch Challenge my lovely XXX
Two beautiful Birthday cards from Janet for our Sketch Challenge this week, both are gorgeous, I am guessing Stamperia papers before I even check Janet's Description because of the incredible detail featured in both designs, so many layers, their papers are stunning and you have bought the best out of them with your designs Janet.
My first card is made using STAMPERIA 'HOUSE OF ROSES' and LABLANCHE.
My second card is made again using STAMPERIA 'HOUSE OF ROSES'.
Thank you so much for taking part XXX
A gorgeous birthday card from Maria for this weeks Sketch Challenge, oh Maria I love that image of a beautiful cottage in the country it's like a jigsaw puzzle photo. I love how you have layered it onto blue background as it looks like a continuation of the clear blue sky in the image. The piece of checked card really works too as a contrast. This card would be great for both men and ladies.
Maria used her 'Bitbox' to create this card, it certainly doesn't look like a card made from leftovers!!
Thank you so much Maria, I love your card XXX
Here is my card for this week, oxide inks, and Lavinia stencil and stamps.
Thank you so much Lilian, I hope you enjoyed getting back to your craft desk, your first card of 2021 is amazing XXX
Sue's first Challenge card of 2021 is a cute/funny birthday card, Llama's are one of those animals that you just can't help smiling at, I love this stamped image and the greeting that goes with the Llama is "Another Birthday, No Prob-llama" 🤣😂
The layers really work to make the Llama stand out, the green layer looks like Distress Oxide with water spritzed over to give texture and interest.
Thank you so much Sue for taking part in our first Challenge XXX
Thank you all ladies, another amazing showcase of cards ❤
I hope that you all have a lovely Sunday, stay safe my dear friends,
Love and hugs to all of you,
