FFFCardmaking – Paint chips

A fun new challenge started over on Instagram last week using the hashtag #fffcardmaking. It seems this is a challenge running throughout February for a small group of friends who have invited anyone who wants to to join in too.

The first challenge this last week was to make a card using paint chips. After a trip to my local Bunnings hardware store I came home with a pile of samples, and a few ideas – they didn’t all pan out, but a couple of them worked out OK … I’m also going to enter them in a couple more challenges too:

The first card is the one I entered for the challenge. In hindsight I think I’ll add a fun ‘like Netflix’ or other non-traditional sentiment underneath.

The second card I completed is one for a craft group friend who recently lost her Mum, and I added the names inside of everyone that contributed to a floral tribute we gave her on Saturday at our group. It was my first time using the pansy dies, and I definitely see more of these in my future!

Supplies used:

Love you card:

  • Heart Grid cover die by Mama Elephant
  • Refracted embossing folder by Simon Says Stamp
  • Love You die by Simon Says Stamp / CZ Design

Pansy sympathy card:

  • Refracted embossing folder by Simon Says Stamp
  • Pansy dies by Stampin’ Up!
  • Hugs die by Paper Rose (I think … I’ve just mislaid the packet after using it oops)
  • Clear quartz sold sequins by Gina K Designs
