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

Until Next Time,

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

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

Elf Wishes

Hello Everyone,
I am here today to share a simple card that I made following a sketch. It is another one for my Christmas collection.

03-21-elf-wishes.jpg

I found these cute images in a lift out from a magazine that I bought just this past Christmas and I hadn’t done anything with it. I am trying to work through my stash of papers so that I can feel like I can get some new supplies this coming Christmas. To make this card I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday

Sketch Saturday 555.jpg

So I had a lot of fun playing with this sketch. The background snowflake paper came from another magazine download but I thought it went well with the elf and gingerbread cookie. I decided to leave things quite simple this time because the sketch included banners and such. I hope you like my interpretation of the sketch.

Celebrate 3 Times

Hello Everyone,
Here I am with the 3rd card from this set. I had so much fun using one of my colouring in pages that I am definitely going to do this again in the future. And just to remind you again here is the photo of the 3 cards together

03 17 Colour Time Dream 1

This 3rd card uses the last piece of the page which was along the bottom of the page It also suited to used in a portrait orientation for this card and this is the card up close

I decided to sink the colouring in section to the base of the card and have mounted the green side panels on foam to give it a little dimension. Then came the problem of adding the sentiment; I didn’t want to add a solid shape because I didn’t want to cover up my colouring so I used some clear acetate and added this across the 2 panels and added silver holographic circle stickers around the sentiment to hold it onto the card and around the card to tie it all in.

I decided to add this one to the Cute Card Thursday Challenge of celebrating as well

Celebrate Again

Hello Everyone,
I am back again to share my 2nd card from my 3 card colouring in page set which I started to blog about in my previous blog post. Here is the picture of the set of cards together

03 17 Colour Time Dream 1

This time I am using the right side of the page to make this card and this is the card

03-17-colour-time-dream-1c.jpg

The backing paper I decided to make myself because I couldn’t find anything that I liked. So I found some grey paper and edged it with some Distress Inks just to give it a bit more interest to it. Then I used my Darkroom Door Stamp ‘Torn Text’ stamp but something went wrong with the stamping but I still liked it because it looked like aged. And I made this card for the Time Out Challenge

Handmade Cards, Love

Celebrate

Hello Everyone,
I know that a lot of people out there love colouring pages for fun and relaxation. I know that I do; it’s an easy craft to take with you almost anywhere. I decided to get two enjoyments from my colouring in activities by using what I had done and using them to make cards with. Today’s card shows this with a set of 3 cards.

03 17 Colour Time Dream 1.JPG

and here is the first card up close

03-17-colour-time-dream-1b.jpg

I cut this panel 1st from the colouring page because I knew the exact card that I was going to make with this image. I thought that this pair of birds would make a lovely anniversary card. I didn’t matt this image as I would have had to cut too much of my colouring away to make it fit in. I had this small heart background in my stash and thought that this would help set the anniversary theme. Then in my ribbon box I found this ribbon which I thought suited as well and this is where I left the decorations except to add the Happy Anniversary Sticker onto the ribbon.

When I went to upload this card I found that Cute Card Thursday had uploaded their latest challenge

And they have asked us to Celebrate with them as it is their 11th Birthday. But you can interpenetrate this theme any way that you would like to. So I am celebrating the love of two people. Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. I really appreciate the likes and comments on my blog. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought

If you are still having doubts of traveling together with your partner, then perhaps these travel quotes should keep you both on the road.

Birthday, Handmade Cards

Motorbike Wishes

Hello Everyone,
Another birthday card made and this time I went with a male themed card. I made this specifically for someone in my family who loves bikes and has just gotten himself a new ride. So I thought he would like this card

 

03 17 Motorbike

The motorbike and track stamps are from a Creative Stamping Magazine issue from quite a while ago but I love using it for both Male and Female themed cards. It all just has to do with which papers you use together.

This card was inspired though by the Time Out Challenge celebrating their 5th Birthday! So we are asked to help them celebrate with this challenge

The paper pad that I used for this card comes from Authentique Papers. This paper pack is from an older collection called ‘Free Bird’. I also have the 2nd paper pack from this collection and I have to admit to hoarding these – I love the designs in both of these packs. But I wanted something that was a little different for this card and these papers were the perfect thing. The 3 stripes are made out of some ribbon sticky tape and to grunge up the paper a little I used my Black Soot Distress Ink around the edge of both the main and image panels.
