Hello crafty friends! If you follow me on Instagram, you will be aware of the fact that I was away on holiday over the last few days. We had a lovely time by the pool, building sand castles and watching the kids get tanned by the sea. We are one lucky family to have had such a chance, I know!
Since my baby girl still naps in the daytime, I was also able to fit in a bit of colouring whist we were away. Before we left home, I stamped a bunch of my favourite images and packed them into our hand luggage along with my small collection of Copic markers. I treated myself to about an hour of colouring every afternoon, so hopefully I’ll be able to put a few cards together and share them with you over the next few days, so stay tuned!
The first of them is this birthday card, for which I was inspired by the layout of the current challenge over at the Your Next Stamp blog.
I particularly love this card design because it works beautifully as a masculine card too (which is great, since I’m planning on giving it to my brother-in-law when we next see him in a few days).
I hope you like today’s project and that in inspires you to play along in one of Your Next Stamps’ Sketch and Colour Challenges. They are a great way to discover new and talented crafters out there, and the Design Team always provide us with awesome inspiration for us to use the YNS stamps and dies we might already own in new and fun ways. Until next time!
