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

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.

For Robyn

Hello Everyone,
I made this card for the wonderful Robyn from the Spinners and Weavers group it is her Birthday tomorrow and I am going to get the other members to sign it for her.

03 13 Extra Icing

This card started with a sketch that I have already used but I loved it so much that I wanted to re-use it and here it is

Stella Says 705

To make this card I searched through my stamp set because I wanted to make a card with a baking theme because Robyn besides loving fibre she likes baking. And sometimes we are lucky and she brings in her creations for us to enjoy.

This stamp came from a stamp set that came with an older Creative Stamping Magazine. I had actually forgotten that I had this stamp set so I have left it on my desk to see if it can spark more card making. The papers that I have used are from an older Kasiercraft paper pack called Nan’s Favourites Collection.

Purple Birthday Greetings

Hello Everyone,
I was able to make a 2nd card for the Stella Says Sketch Challenge but it is also suitable for the Shopping Our Stash Challenge – Fabulous February celebrating everything about February which includes it having Violets and Amethyst all Purple things 🙂

If you have been a visitor of my blog for a while you will know that I love working with sketches. But you may not also realise that I also love Purple as well so this challenge came in perfectly. So this is the card I came up with when I combined the challenges.

Another image that I have had sitting in my container waiting for a card to be right for it. The colouring of the image drove the colour choice that I went with. I had this pack of 1 colour plus white details sitting in my paper pad stash. And this is the sketch from Stella

Stella Says 704

This time the whole card has gone portrait instead of landscape but everything was driven by the digi image from Bugaboo Digital Stamps. I used a birthday embossing folder for the top part of the sketch just to give a little interest to this area.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card project. I really appreciate the visits, likes and comments that I receive on my blog posts. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought

So true

AHSC Sketch 305

Hello Everyone,
Today I am bringing you a card as part of the Design Team for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (AHSC). And this is the sketch that we got to play with this time around.

AHSC 305 Feb 25th DT

This is such a fun sketch to play with. When I originally saw this sketch I was going to use a doily for the scalloped element but I search my stash and I didn’t have one :O I thought that my stash had everything 😉 But anyway this is the card that I made with this sketch

ahsc-305.jpg

This image is from a card making magazine and I stamped the bird, eggs, and flower image once and then I stamped the flower part of the image twice more. By doing this I was able to layer up the flowers to give a fuller look. I coloured in everything with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils, I have a love hate relationship with this colouring medium but I think that I just need to spend more time working with them.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team project. I hope that you will come on over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog and join with us in using this sketch. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought

Don’t wait

Until Next Time,

Retro Birthday

Hello Everyone,
A birthday card that I think would be suitable for almost anyone. It is so good digging into my image collection and using those that haven’t been out in a while. And this is the card that I made

02 23 Camera Birthday

The making of this card was inspired by 2 challenges – a theme and a sketch. The theme comes from Time Out Challenges

and the sketch is from Stella @ Bugaboo Challenges

Stella Says 704

With my card I did change the orientation of the image but this was only because of the image that I decided to use with these papers. These papers are from an older Kasiercraft Paper Pad called Happy Snaps. I knew that I had this paper pad in my stash when I decided to used this camera image for the “Retro” theme. I am unsure where this image came from as I have lost the packaging that it came with. I coloured in the elements with my Copic markers.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. I appreciate all of the visits, likes and comments on my projects. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought
