Gifts, Gators and Kites

Hi there!  I've barely been in the Craft Cave at all in the last week but I found a little bit of time to sneak in there today.  I made 3 cards for 5 challenges.  

First up I combined the Addicted to CAS Gift challenge with the CAS on Sunday sketch challenge and came up with this little number.  The patterned papers are from an old Crate Paper collection.  The gifts and sentiment are Reverse Confetti and the Wonky Stitched Circle die is from My Favourite Things.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper:  (Lillian collection) Crate Paper
Stamps:  (Gifts & sentiment from Monkey Business) Reverse Confetti
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Wonky Stitched Circles Die-namics) My Favourite Things
Gems:  Recollections

Next up is a card for the Stampin' Celebration inspiration challenge.  I was inspired by the blues and greens, the flags in the top right picture and the kraft background in the bottom right picture.  I used my favourite Reverse Confetti alligator and some RC banners along with Newton's Nook sentiments.  I'm also going to enter it in the  Seize the Birthday Anything Goes challenge. 

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White, Kraft) Papertrey Ink, (Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Alligator from Later Gator, Hat from Monkey Business) Reverse Confetti, (Sentiment from Shark Bites) Newton's Nook
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Die:  (Banners) Reverse Confetti
Marker:  (Crumb Cake) Stampin' Up

 Finally a simple card for the Paper Players colour challenge.  The polaroid frame has been in my scrap pile for a while so I was glad to use it.  The Taylored Expressions kite die is NBUS, the cloud is Lil' Inkers and the sentiment is Altenew.  It's perfect for this time of year as Good Friday is kite flying day in Bermuda!  A long weekend with kites, hot cross buns and codfish cakes.  Yummy yummy!  Fingers crossed for sunshine and a good breeze.  

That's all for today.  Have a lovely evening! 

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Textured White) Bazzill, (Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay) Stamping' Up
Stamps:  (Sentiment from Bejeweled) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Superfine) Wow
Dies:  (Kite) Taylored Expressions, (Cloud, polaroid frame) Lil' Inkers Designs.

Fabulous group of cards! That adorable croc and fun bunting are perfect for both Seize the Birthday and Stampin' Celebration! Thanks so much for joining us and hope you'll play again soon!

Lack of time in the Craft Cave and yet you have three cards? You are obviously a much more efficient crafter than I am. Three perfect CAS cards, too!

Bobby said...

Three different but equally wonderful cards, Jen. I'm glad your craft cave visit was so productive.

OH, so fun to see all three of these. Love the all, especially the crocodile one. He's so cute.
