Atlantic Hearts #368

Hello everyone, I hope that you are finding some time to get into your craft space or to use your craft supplies in some way. I am having to work around the limitations that I have with my frozen shoulder. So when I am able to get into my space I try to make the most of it.

I decided this time around I would play with a sketch and make a card that made me smile. And this is the card that I made.

05 13 Alpaca Cake

So I looked at the half-used paper pad that was sitting on my craft desk and wanted to use more of it up. So these colours led to the colouring of the Alpaca in the image. But of course, all of this started with a sketch. Atlantic Hearts Sketch #368

This was a fun sketch to play around with. I couldn’t find a bird image that I liked to use for this sketch but I still wanted to participate in the sketch challenge. Hope it was okay not to use a bird image. I have always loved this stamp set; it always puts a smile on my face whenever I use it. I love the sentiments that are included.

As I mentioned before I decided on a paper pad to use before I coloured this image so I was able to match some for the blanket and cake. I used a grass die to give the Alpaca something to stand on – when I first put him onto the cake he looked a little weird because he looked like he was floating in the air.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. Before you depart my blog I would like to leave you with this final thought for this post.

When difficult times knock you down, roll over and look up at the stars. It’s okay if you don’t have the strength to stand up right away. Facing unexpected trials can knock over even the most matur...
Make the most of each day, hour, second because the next one isn’t guaranteed.

Atlantic Hearts #365

Hello everyone. I was able to get into my card corner in the past couple of days. It was so nice to be able to get in there and actually be productive. So I took advantage and made a card for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

04 23 Day Bloom

All of the products I used on this card came from my stash and some of it I had forgotten that I had. The papers are from a partly used paper pack and the image is from a stamp set that I got from a magazine ages ago but haven’t used.

This card goes along with Kristie Marcottes Card Challenge of Black and White with a Pop of Colour.

Image may contain: possible text that says 'Join me for a card challenge *Black & White with a Pop of Color* Use hashtag #kristiescardchallenge'

and I used the sketch #365 from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

It was so much fun using up things in my craft corner which is in a bit of shambles at the moment with both my frozen shoulder and I am also on the move with my craft corner again.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. Please let me know that you were here by either leaving a comment or liking my post. But before you depart from my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Have to remember this one and not beat myself up when I can’t do. A big shout out to anyone who is living with this.

Until my next post,

2 Cards 1 Sketch Pt2

Hello everyone, today I am here to share with you a sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge in which I turned into 2 Cards. To see my other card please go here.

And here is the fun sketch that started this creative process, Atlantic Hearts Sketch #353

This sketch can be used in a different orientation as my first card showed but also for so many different occasions as well. Time to dive into our stash and find those wanted to use or forgotten stamps that are in our stashes πŸ˜‰ I know you have them like me.

And if you are wondering, if you’ve seen my first card as well; yes I used the top and bottom of the cuts I did with the die. I thought why not? Didn’t want to waste either my white paper or the blue paper πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card projects today. Before you depart my blog today I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

2 Cards 1 Sketch

Hello everyone, today I am here to share with you a sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge in which I turned into 2 Cards.

01 30 Fab Bday

 

And here is the fun sketch that started this creative process, Atlantic Hearts Sketch #353

This sketch can be used for so many different occasions and as you can see with my first card I actually turned this sketch on its side. I mainly did this because of the image that I wanted to use. It wouldn’t fit in the portrait orientation unless I moved the line almost to the bottom and then the sketch just didn’t look right.

And if you are wondering yes I used the top and bottom of the cuts I did with the die. I thought why not? Didn’t want to waste either my white paper or the blue paper πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card projects today.

Friends Gods Gift

Hello everyone, I have made some cards over the past couple of days. As I said in my last post I have had to make some adjustments to how I do things because of my limited abilities at the moment. But I think that I have worked out the best adjustment for me. But anywho onto the main reason that you stopped on by today … my card

01 15 Friend

This card started with a sketch and this time around it is the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #351. I use to be on their design team but due to my health I had to step down but I still love playing along with the sketches when I can.

Isn’t this a great sketch! As you can see I have turned this onto its side the main reason for doing this is that I wanted to use this long sentiment and it fitted best this way. This is more of the same paper pack from the last card; this sketch was perfect for me getting towards the bottom of the pack because I mainly have strips from cutting bases for other cards.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and looking at my card project. Before you depart from my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Love from Afar

Hello everyone, today this card could be used for Valentine’s Day next year or for an anniversary card. Now that my Christmas cards for this year are complete I can work towards next year’s celebrations πŸ˜€ It’s nice to be ahead for once.

I also think that this card would suit either a guy or a girl because I don’t think that I have gone too far either way. And this card started with a sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #344.

What a fun sketch to play along with and I hope that you like what I have done with this sketch. Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. I really appreciate all of the likes and comments on my posts. Before you go from my blog I would like to leave you with this thought for this post.

Monster Sized Birthday

Hello everyone, it is so good to be in my craft space again and being able to craft. For awhile I thought that I wouldn’t be able to get back here again for quite some time but I have been blessed with a good day so I am taking advantage of it. And so I am here to share another card that I have made and this time around it is a combo of 2 challenges.

11 24 Monster Birthday

What started this card off this time was actually the November Colour Challenge from Catch the Bug. I had to search quite a way through my paper pads to find something that came close (I Hope) to the challenge palette

And then I found this sketch from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #343. I use to be a part of their design team but due to life commitments, I had to step down earlier this year. But I still love playing along with the challenges.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card design. I really appreciate you stopping in and for all of the likes and comments that I get as well. They all help my growth in my card making. Before you depart my blog I would like to leave you with this thought to ponder on.
