Elephant, Kitty & Flowers


I'm back with a few more cards from my crafting session over the weekend.  First is a card for the Fusion challenge.  I used the sketch but also incorporated the stripes, teal and pink from the inspiration photo.  How sweet is that Whimsy Stamps elephant?  I love his little face!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Textured White) Bazzill, (Bermuda Bay, Pretty in Pink, Daffodil Delight) Stampin' Up
Patterned Paper:  (Grey polka dots) Pebbles, (Black & white stripes) My Favourite Things
Stamps:  (Elephant & sentiment from Sketched Elephants) Whimsy Stamps
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Dies:  (Stitched circle) Lil' Inker Designs
Glitter:  (Yellow Stickles) Ranger
Gems:  Recollections



Next is a card using the sketch at My Favourite Things.  I stuck very close to the design using a Heart Stax die and Copic coloring one of the many cute kitty images that MFT has.  The white panel and the kitty are popped up on foam tape.  I'm also going to enter this in the Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes challenge.

Finally is a card for the latest ColourQ challenge.  I took inspiration from the photo as well as the colours and created a wreath using PTI leaves, Lil' Inker Designs flowers and an Altenew sentiment.  

That's it for today.  I'll see you tomorrow at CASology!

That polka-dotted elephant just warms my heart! LOVE him on his black and teal with the little pink flower. The kitty on a heart is so fun - I'm going to have to steal that one for my cat-loving son! And your wreath is gorgeous. The pop of turquoise in the flowers is perfect.

What great cards, Jen. That elephant is indeed darling and the kitty so nicely colored. I love how you layered the wreath with all the autumn colors.

Polka dot elephant! Perfect on a card, might not want to hallucinate one in real life. :P Your Copic kitty is adorable! Such a pretty wreath with the autumnal colours and the pops of bright blue.
