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

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,

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.

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

Image result for celebrate friendship

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.

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.

Sketch Saturday #554

Hello Everyone,
Today I am bringing you a simpler card it just turned out that way as I was crafting it. It came out different to what I had planned but sometimes this happens while I am creating a project.

03-13-with-sympathy.jpg

I am lucky that I was not needing to make this card for any particular occasion. I try to get ahead and make sympathy cards when I am not needing them. So when I found this image in my stash I thought that it would be suitable to make one. Then I found this sketch from Sketch Saturday and everything just came together

Sketch Saturday 554

I think that this sketch could be used in either orientation and I will probably use this sketch again but the other way around. The papers that I used are from an older Kasiercraft paper pack called Tiny Woods. Because of the theme of the card I wanted to keep things simpler so I didn’t add the bow because I didn’t think that it suited.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I really appreciate all the comments, likes and visits to my blog please consider leaving something. Before you go though I would like to leave you with this though

AHSC 307

Hello Everyone,
Another wonderful sketch from Michelle over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge for us all to play along with.

AHSC 307 March 11th DT

I decided to go down the clean and simple route or at least for me it is! And this is what I came up with

AHSC 307

To create this card I cut the image panel first but instead of cutting individual rectangle like indicated on the sketch I decided to go down another route. I taped the main panel to a board that I keep to do sponging work on and then I created the “window” pattern with more tape. I chose a stencil from my collection and then I used my Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks with sponge daubers. I used the Salty Ocean around the edge of the main panel and Mowed Lawn around the sentiment circle.

When putting the card together I cut some foam and put this under the scalloped circle just to give a little height. To give the sentiment a little more depth I cut it out a 2nd time so that I could stamp it in another colour and use the distress ink for a little bit of difference.

Birthday Critter

Hello Everyone,
I have had this wonderful little critter sitting in my stash for a little while waiting for the perfect project and I decided to use him on this one.

03 10 Birthday Critter

I had coloured in the critter from Bugaboo quite a while ago but I didn’t colour in the balloon. I didn’t know what paper I would be putting him on and I thought that having the balloon co-ordinate with the paper would be a good tie in. And if you have visited my blog before you know that I love starting with a sketch and this is the one that started this card.

Stella Says 705

I saw this sketch come up in the beginning of the week but my plans went one way while my life went another. But I did get to sit down and finish off this card. So once I had settled on the paper pack I was going to work with I finished colouring in the image and put some grass around the little fellas feet with my Copic markers. Then I put the card together and used my shaped scissors for the scalloped border.

A Baby Boy

Hello Everyone,
I am here today to share a card with you that has taken a while to make. Only because life got in on the act this week. I had everything planned out and none of it came off. Well I suppose everything came together in the end! Because I am getting to share my card project with you….

But any who onto the reason for your visit … my card project.

03-10-a-boy.jpg

Oh I love this image from Bugaboo but unfortunately it is a retired image but there are lots of baby images still available here. In the beginning of the week I saw this sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches

TMS 493

and I had started putting this card together but then life got in the way and part way through the week this challenge from Catch the Bug came in so I decided to combine them.

Image result for make a sceneWith the Catch the Bug Challenge Crew.

So to complete this card that I had started I had this image already coloured and it suited the papers that I had started to make the sketch with so I just went with it.
