Two simple cards, lots of challenges

Written by: iwona    26 Comments

Oh, hi weekend! I hope you’ll treat me well…. been a bit grumpy and tired lately, no wonder: 37-th week of pregnancy is not the brightest highlight of my life, I’m afraid! I feel SO heavy…  The good thing is that crafting is giving me a much needed distraction that I’m happily succumbing to. I’d like to share the two cards today, that I made at various times yesterday, you know… in between… other stuff. lol
First up, I played with my new Mama Elephant So Breezy stamp set. Such a joy. I had this idea of attaching clouds to the rope, instead of the kite. I couldn’t resist adding a few splatters of spray ink to the card, I love the effect. It doesn’t remind me of rain, rather of wee bits of the blue cloud fluff dancing around in the air as the boy shakes them off running. does anyone else see it?  😛

The challenges I combined on this card…. Yeah, guilty of multitasking! Click on the graphics for the direct links.


Aaand another one! I wanted to pull out the new Waltzingmouse stamp sets from the last release, while the new one is just around the corner!! You’ll love the new stuff, btw… can’t wait to share!! In the meantime, this semi-(belated)-Easter card (well, not really Easter as such but it does have a holiday feel to it…) gave me a lot of fun creating 🙂

The challenges I played with for this one:



I’m sorry for the lack of details, it’s Saturday morning and I’m already caught up in the chores! They never ends, people… ugh! lol
I’ll see you around 🙂

  1. Both are gorgeous! Only a few weeks to go, and you won’t feel so heavy… maybe a little more tired, but not so heavy. 😉 Have a great week-end, Iwona!

  2. These are both lovely cards and the top one would be so good for a man too! Good luck with the birth – the last couple of weeks are the hardest, but you’ll soon forget once the little one is here.

  3. Back to comment on your up card – love the collage-y feel with all the beautiful elements – the texture of the felt and the buttons, the air mail strip, the movement in the silhouette! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!

  4. Love the felt clouds attached to the kite string! Such a cool idea! Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!
    Also love the colours on your good egg card. Thanks for playing along with CAs(E) This Sketch this week!

  5. Love both of these but that first one just takes the cake! Such a great idea to be pulling along a cloud, and yes I totally see the blue splatters are little bits of cloud fluff! 😀 But you’re not giving me a shadow of a hope at the Mama Elephant Challenge now! Bad Chupa!!

  6. Hey Chupa! Thanks for linking this up to this week’s Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I’m so glad you joined in on all the fun! 🙂

  7. These are both winners, especially the clouds take on the Trigger. Such a great eye you have to create the whimsical together with the beautiful! Congrats on your win. Much love to the upcoming ‘event’!

  8. Wonderful cards, Iwona! Big congrats on your Tuesday Trigger win! Hopefully the next few weeks will fly by for you. This is the hardest part of a pregnancy but it will be well worth it!

  9. Love these cards! That stamped chicken card is perfect, love the colours 🙂 Thanks for playing this week at CAS(E) this Sketch!
