Star Of Wonder

Hello everyone, today I am sharing with you a very simple Christmas card. I thought that this style would suit the card sketch that I was working with. So this is the card that I made

10 10 Star of Wonder

And this is the sketch from the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #337 that I followed along with.

As you can see I didn’t follow along with the sketch exactly as I was letting the supplies dictate how things could be used. If I did this again I would probably put the sentiment above the line so that I could do a thinner line … but of course, this is hindsight.

I hope that you still love my take on the sketch this week. Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I appreciate all of the likes and comments that are being left on my posts. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

Until next time, find your happy and do plenty of it!
❤ Tracy

Fluttering Butterflies

Hello everyone, today I had some fun and pulled out my watercolour paints. I have just gotten into using these again after not using this type of medium since High School. But I used a digital image from Bugaboo Digital Images. And this is the card that I made.

10 06 Butterfly

Unfortunately, this image is no longer available but I love using it. The image only comes with 1 butterfly in the middle to get the other 2 I cropped the image and printed them at the same time on another piece of watercolour paper. This whole design was started by this sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #336.

I will also be entering this card into the Anything Goes Challenge over at the Catch The Bug Challenge site.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. I really appreciate the likes and comments that I get on my posts. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought to ponder on.

Until next time, have fun doing what you love,

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

Until Next Time,
Tracy B

Hello Everyone,

Here is my first card project as a Design Team member for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I am so excited to be a part of this team and to share my creations with you. And here is sketch #303

1 AHSC 303

this is what I did with this sketch

AHSC DT Sketch 303

It was an interesting sketch to work with I had fun playing with it. To get the look of the multi circle element I used my Cuttlebug with 2 circle dies together to make loops I cut this 3 times and then cut 1 apart to get a little more movement in the design.

The papers I used are from an old card making magazine extra that I found in my stash during my move into the area where I now work. Thanks for stopping by and looking at my Design Team project. I hope that you will consider joining in on the fun over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought

step out 1

I was sure that my work wasn’t good enough to be suitable for being on a design team. I climbed over my wall that told me my work wasn’t good enough … and look where I am now! A question for you – What walls have you built that you could scale today? Even if you aren’t successful this time having the confidence to try something new can work you towards your goal.

Until Next Time,
Tracy B
