I Love Math Challenge #17

Hello everyone and welcome to a new I Love Math Challenge!

This is our seventeenth challenge. If you're new to my blog, you can find all about the challenge here.

A theme for this challenge is picked by our dear ŽeljkaNINE.

In this challenge we are creating a Nature themed Card using 9 elements, same or different. Sentiments are counting as one element (words are not counted separately).

A bit about number 9...

Nine (9) is a natural number. It's the highest single-digit number in the decimal system. A group of nine is called an Ennead.

More about number 9: New World Encyclopedia (meaning of number 9), Mystical Numbers (Number 9 - Meaning, Symbolism and Fun Facts).

And now inspiration from the team...

First one is from Željka.

9 = 8 butterflies + 1 sentiment

Beautiful rainbow slimline card. Love the layout and how butterflies overlap. ♥ Jump over to Željka's blog and find more details about her card. :o)

Here is Valentina's take on the challenge.

Here is Kaja's take on the challenge.

9 = 3 clouds + 2 mice + 1 ice cream + 1 basket + 1 ant + 1 sentiment

Super cuteness overload!!! ♥ I LOVE Kaja's take on the challenge, her adorable card and a lovely scene. LOVE it!!  Jump over to Kaja's blog and find more details about her card. :o)

Here is Neha's take on the challenge.

9 elements = water, air, fire, earth, sun, wood, thunder, snow and a sentiment

STUNNING!!! Gorgeous elegant design. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!  Jump over to Neha's blog and find more details about her card. :o)

And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), Rainbow Snails Card. :o)

9 = 8 rainbow snails + sentiment

How I made my card...

To make this card I used an adorable snail stamp from Stacey Yacula Studio (Purple Onion Designs) and a Purple Onion Designs 'Thank You' sentiment stamp.

First I made a tri-fold card base. I used a white cardstock paper.

I stamped snails and the sentiment on a white cardstock panel, same size as the card base. After an ink dried, I colored snails' bodies with colored pencils. 

Then I colored snails' houses with Distress Inks and a Wink of Stella Clear Brush. I pressed each ink pad on an acrylic block, picked up colors, one by one, with the Wink of Stella Brush and colored snails' houses in rainbow colors.

As a finishing touch I drew white highlights with a white pigment ink pen and my card was finished. :o)

Card measurements: 172 mm x 83 mm  (6 3/4" x 3 1/4")

Long Absence

Hi everyone! :o)

I hope you're all enjoying the summer, that you are well and healthy, as well as your loved ones. :o)

It's been quiet for quite a long time here on my blog. I didn't post anything for a month and didn't share any project here for two months.

A lot of is happening in my life and I just didn't find time and strength to write here on my blog.

I did craft through this "quiet" period, but not so much. I made several cards that I shared on my Instagram account and on Design Team blogs that I'm part of. I'll be sharing all of them here on my blog next week, if nothing unexpected comes up (updated, September 9th, 2020) through the next month, when I manage. :o)

New I Love Math Challenge #17 starts tomorrow at 10 PM, CEST (UTC +2). I hope you will be joining us. :o)

And that would be all from me today. Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy and smile!! :o)
