#216 Holidays/Vacations

Julie is hosting today's challenge, Holidays/Vacations

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the HolIdays/Vacations theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT


Dies from Creative Expressions and a dies and a stamp from Die Cutting Essentials magazine were combined to make this card. Someone's off on their holidays!


I have made a simple easel card using a page from the Everyday Card Collection pad of House Mouse Designs and some coordinating cardstock.


I've used Distress Oxides to make the background with Tim Holtz stamps then TH dies for the globes and birds and if that's not enough I finished it off with TH tiny birds and the sentiment. The white brads completed the design.


To create my card I used a rubber stamp from Whimsy Stamps called Beach Scene and a beach frame cutting die by Amy Design. My beach scene was coloured with copics and pencil crayons and I added a couple of finding to complete the card.


The image is a digital stamp from All Dressed Up and coloured with Copics and some Prisma Color markers. The brown leaves are from a die cut titled Sylvan Sprig by Poppystamps and the flowers are from punches.


My card was made using some stamps that came free with a magazine, and some distress inks to make the backgrounds.

Hello, today I want to fly, fly somewhere. I made a shaker box card with rocket and stars.

We look forward to seeing what you can come up with!

This will be our last challenge for a few weeks as we will be taking a Summer break and will not be back until 20th August. The challenge will, however, run for the usual two weeks.
