AHSC 313

Hello Everyone,
Yes I am back with some design team work. This time around it is for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. And this is the sketch that we go to have a play with

AHSC 313 April 22nd DT

And this is the card that I came up with using this sketch.

AHSC 313

As you can see I have actually reversed and inverted the sketch. The reason that I did this was because of the drum image on my base paper. I had found this sentiment and then I found this paper so I went with the elements and they dictated how this card turn out.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my design team work. I hope that you will come over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and join in with the fun. But before you go I would like to leave you with this thought.

52CCT April Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

And today being week 2 of April we have a Colour Challenge brought to us by EK and for her colour choices for us to play along with we have

When this was first announced I must say that it took me a while to decide on the metallic to use and the colour to go along with it. But finally the choice was made for me by the design of the card that I made

This combination of embossing folder, rectangle die and scene die made my choices for me. Because it is such a regal scene I went with a regal combination of colours. Or at least to me they are. But I did notice that once I was putting the whole card together that I didn’t quite centre up the scene in the cut window.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my Design Team creation. I hope that we will see you over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge Blog and come play along with us. Before you go though I would like to leave you with this thought

Be confident God is always with you

Until Next Time,

52 CCT April Sketch

Hello Everyone,

I am here to share with you this months sketch bought to us by hostess Netta and this is the sketch that she has given us to play around with.

52CCT 2019 04 April

Even though it is drawn as one colour I decided to do a ray design with the bottom of the design. So by going down this road I actually made 2 cards at the same time and here they are

and a close up of both

I didn’t follow the sketch exactly as you can see I didn’t use a circle for my image. But I have been trying to use up some images that I found waiting to be put onto cards. But you can see how I was able to make 2 cards at the same time because I used alternate papers across the ray design.

Thanks for looking at my Design Team Project. I hope that you will come on over and play along with us at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge.

Until Next Time,

AHSC 309

Hello Everyone,
I am here with a Design Team assignment that I would love to share with you. This time around its with the team over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and this is the sketch that we got to play with this time

AHSC 309 March 25th DT

I can see myself making quite a bit of use of this sketch. I am not one to do just a sentiment as an element but I went with it this time around. And this is the card that I came up with

03 25 AHSC 309.JPG

I decided to dive into my older stash elements and see what I could use and I found this travel set that I have had in my stash for quite awhile and I have used elements of it on and off but mainly the more neutral papers and such. But I saw this sentiment in the included stamp set and thought that it could suit anyone going on a long trip or even retirement. Then I found 2 Washi Tapes because when I put on the check designed one it looked like it needed something else.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my Design Team assignment. I hope that we will see you around Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and give this sketch a try. I really appreciate all the likes and comments on my posts. And before you go I would like to leave you with this thought

I need one of these

52CCT March Technique

Hello Everyone,
I am here today with our 4th Challenge for March which is a technique challenge. Goga has asked us to do the following

I was pretty sure that I had some folders that would suit this challenge as this is craft item is one of my favourite items to buy. And this is the card that I came up with

52CCT 03 2019 wk4 Stash.JPG

I was first going to go with an embossing folder that had words on it but once I put my Old World Santa image from Bugaboo Digi Images it just didn’t look right. So then I searched through my collection of embossing folders and I found this one by Craft Concepts called Secret Garden which I thought looked like Christmas Berries so I went with it. I decided to keep the card pretty simple this time around because I wanted to keep the focus on the embossing.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team work for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. Please consider coming over and participating in this weeks challenge. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought
