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.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card project. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought

Until Next Time,

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

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

Greeting 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.

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

Birthday, Greeting 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.

Friendship

Hello Everyone,
Today I am bringing you a card that is celebrating friendship. Friends are great to have but for me I only have a couple that I would call actual friends and not just acquaintances. But here is the card that I made for a combination of 2 challenges.

03-17-friendship.jpg

So this card is the result of me combining 2 challenges and they are a sketch and a theme challenge. The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches

TMS 494

and this theme challenge from Shopping Our Stash

The image is from Bugaboo Digi Stamps and unfortunately this image isn’t available in the store but there are some other wonderful friendship plus other images here. The paper pack that I used is from My Minds Eye and is called Gnome Sweet Gnome. This pack has been sitting in my stash for quite awhile. If you saw my paper pad stash you would understand why some pads only see the light of day every now and again. I haven’t actually purchased any new pads for quite a while.

Christmas Time, Design Team, Greeting Cards

52CCT March Theme

Hello Everyone,

Today is week 3 of the month and this is Theme Challenge week over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge. Goga has given this theme to play along with

I search through my entire Christmas stash and I don’t have any Gingerbread in there. So I went looking online for a free image as I couldn’t afford to buy a new digi image at the moment even though they are a great price. But I found an image I was able to work with and this is what I made

To give a little more life to my image I found this piping bag and chef hat that fit my image perfectly. I used a cover up die that I have had for a while to make the background because I couldn’t really find papers that I was 100% happy. I used several brown Distress Inks on the frame because I thought that it looked a little like baked goods.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team project. Hope to see you around the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge some time. And before you go please consider leaving a like or a comment. Also let me leave you with this thought before you go

Until Next Time,
Tracy B
