Scraps Birthday

Hello Everyone,
Yes, another card made from my scraps drawer. I am so happy to be working through this drawer. I thought that I would never find ways to use this and stuff from my stash. As with most of my cards, this one started out with this inspiration from a sketch. This time around it is Sketch Saturday #574.

And this is the card that I made using this as my starting point.

I need to admit that I almost threw this card in the bin several times – me and my cutter were not on the same page! I cut things wrong and those pieces are now in the bin. But I finally got it all together even though I didn’t follow my own measurements exactly I still thought that it followed the sketch.

Cupcake Celebrations

Hello Everyone,
I just love the sketch from Mojo Monday so much that I had to make another card. And this time everything on this card comes from my long lost bottom of the pile stash. You know that place where stuff goes and you don’t see it so you don’t use it. Well, I got sick of having all of this stuff that I had purchased but haven’t used yet. And this is the card that I made using the sketch.

Here is also the Mojo Monday #519 for you to look at.

This sketch is so much fun to play along with. I know that it won’t be the last time that I use this one. I didn’t do anything this time with the stars because I just couldn’t find anything suitable in my stash – yes I know I was shocked as well.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my creation. I hope that you will stop by another time; please consider leaving a like or/and a comment I really appreciate those. Before you leave my blog I would like to leave you with this final thought.

Moon Monsters?

Hello Everyone,
The card today is inspired by a card challenge and a world event. When I saw this sketch from Mojo Monday #519

I was watching a TV Documentary called “Chasing The Moon” about the 50th Anniversary of the moon landing. The round element and the stars started the creation of this card.

07 21 Moon Monsters

The wonderful cute monsters are from the set “Out of this World” by Uniquely Creative. I had them already sitting in my coloured image pile and knew that they were what this card needed to finish it off. These images were coloured in with my Prismacolour Pencils and I embossed the background with a star folder from Craft Concepts. The papers used are from a paper pack by Kasiercraft called “Stargazer”, I think that I will be getting a 2nd pack of this paper pack I love using it.

I want to thank you for stopping in and looking at my project. Please consider leaving a comment or a like before you go. I hope you will stop by again sometime. Now before you depart I would like to leave you with this last thought.

Birthday Wishes

Hello Everyone,
I am back in my craft space creating on and off again. Lately I am having to be more careful with what I do because of health restrictions this is a learning curve and I think that I am slowly getting used to my new restrictions.

But any who onto this card … I have always loved the fun sketches from Stella Says Sketch so I looked up their latest which is this one.
Stella Says 712

I can see that I will use this sketch many times because it suits the use of an image. And this is the card that I have made with the sketch.
07 18 Edward Wishes

I must admit that this is one of my favourite Bugaboo Digital Images. Well actually any of the images featuring Edward the Elephant I really love and this image is Edward Elephant – Flower. I have coloured him and the chick in with my Copic Markers then cut him out with my Scan N Cut. The papers are from Kasiercraft and the paper pack is called Hippy Chick which has been sitting in my stash of paper packs.

I want to thank you for stopping in and looking at my project. I hope you will stop by again sometime. Before you depart I would like to leave you with this last thought.

Inspired Me

Hello Everyone,
Yes, I got to have some more time in my craft space this afternoon. So I decided to make the most of it and create another card this time with some images that I have coloured previously and they have been waiting for me to use them.

What inspired me to use some of my coloured images was this challenge from Power Poppy

So I went blog hopping and found that Carly had used an image like I had. This is her card

Can you see that she has cropped her image in close? Carly used a physical stamp set but I did the same thing with a digital stamp and this is the card that I came up with

07 14 Birthday Lillies

The digital stamp is Tulips in Hobnail Pitcher Digital Stamp from Power Poppy. I also followed along with a card sketch this time I used a new sketch from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
AHSC 324 July 08
This time around my main image is a rectangle instead of a square. But everything else I followed pretty closely the papers that I have used is from Kasiercraft, “Happy Snaps” paper pack which has been sitting in my stash for ages.

Thanks for stopping in and seeing my creation. Please consider liking or leaving me a comment on my creation. Before you depart I would like to leave you with this last thought

Special Wishes

Hello Everyone,
I am back with a new project. I actually had time to get back into my craft space. Unfortunately, some things have gotten in my path to my craft space. But I am going to be happy that I have had some time. To celebrate being able to get in my space again I decided that I would play along with a couple of card challenges.

For this card creation, I have followed along with 2 challenges.  This time it started with a colour challenge and then a sketch. This sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches
TMS 511
I went to their site earlier in the week and intended on using it but as I said things got in the way. And I checked earlier and found that I still had time to play along. Then the other challenge came from Cute Card Thursday and this time it’s a colour challenge and they have chosen Pink! I must admit that I don’t create a lot with pink. This is what I created joining these together.

07 14 Sew Sue

This image is SewSun from Bugaboo Stamps, unfortunately, this digital stamp is retired. But there are still fabulous stamps available in their shop. I coloured her in with my Prismacolour Pencils and used the Woven Stencil by Tim Holtz to put the pattern into the background.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my creation today. Please consider leaving a like or a comment I really appreciate these. Before you depart I would like to leave you with this thought for today.

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

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

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
