Monster Pink Birthday

Day three of the 30 day challenge and I decided that I needed to colour the final monster from this set. I didn't originally plan to colour this pink but the final background using the faceted stencil was on my desk and it sort of just happened lol.

I used the same layout as on the previous card as it was all on my desk and I kind of like how these cards turned out. I hope as this blogpost is written in April that I have used the stencil a bunch more times lol

Monster Birthday

The second background made with the stencil and the one I thought would be my favourite but isn't lol. I think my favourite is the liac, pink and grey one. Which is weird as they aren't my go to colours.

I have almost used all the monsters in this set now and he was coloured during the last 30 day colouring challenge, this image was day two and i am pleased he has made it onto a card already.  The blueprint die was already out and I was going to do a circle but the sentiment was too big for it and I think I prefer this layout.

Pup Treats

I really wish I had used this stencil before now, it works so amazingly and it was so much fun, in fact I made three backgrounds in one sitting and I have made them all into cards too. I know I am as shocked as you are lol.

Of course this image has been sat and coloured since I bought the set from Stampfest two years ago but I am finally getting around to using it, of course I also bought a few other sets that have yet to see ink so maybe I should use them soon.

Making Cards Lovely Ladies 2

This was the third lady I coloured and I knew exactly who she was going to be for as soon as I saw her.

I was ging to create a scrap background again but whilst looking for something else I found this old stripes background and I thought lets use that instead.

I can see why I was obsessed with this background and used it so much, in fact I used it on the next card as well lol

Making Cards Lovely Ladies 1

I know all I seem to show at the moment is multiples and pretty high multiples at that but during the lockdown/quarantine this is all I feel like making.

As soon as this magazine arrived I stamped all three of the ladies twice and set about colouring them in. So far five have made it onto cards and I will be showing them off over the next few days (one was a few days ago but who is counting lol)

For the background I tried something I have wanted to do for a while and I used scraps of white card to make it. I used distress oxides and went direct to paper and once they dried I cut them into three different widths and started adding them to a piece of copy paper. I am pleased with how this looks and I really want to make more too.

Later Skater

I was challenged by a few of my friends to make a card in an hour and this was the result, to be honest even with finding all the elements it didn't take anywhere near as long as I thought it would.

I kind of followed the last card I made with this set way back in 2016 but I included a different stencil and I was inspired by the orange of the baby cards I recently made and went with a combo that is very unusual for me but I must say I like it a lot.

Dies: basic edges set 1, a2 stitched rectangle and a2 rectangle staxs all MFT
