Butterfly Birthday

Hello everyone, I loved the look of the sketch that Julie made from Mojo Monday that I decided that I had to attempt to make a card even despite my shoulder restrictions at the moment. And this is the card that I came up with

And this is the sketch #527 from Mojo Monday that started this whole card making session.

MojoSketch527_600

My card ended up being a little bit different but it’s only missing the bow because I used washi tape instead of ribbon as I couldn’t find anything that would suit. I was going for a more masculine type of card – I think that I succeeded but I’m not 100% sure. What do you think? These papers have been in my stash for such a long time waiting for me to find the right project for them.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card project today. I appreciate all of the comments and likes on my posts. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

Until the next post,
Live Each Day of Your Life.

Hello Happy Birthday

Hello everyone, today I am sharing with you a card that I got to make. I made it using the paper pad that was sitting on my desk from the previous card and a new sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

11 03 Apple Birthday

And here is the sketch that I used #340 from AHSC

As you can see I flipped the sketch – I did this because of the elements that I had. The sentiment flag was a pre-printed one and I couldn’t change the orientation so I went with what I had. The checked element is some washi tape that I have in my stash. Most of my elements have been backed with green lightweight cardstock.

Aussie Birthday

Hello everyone, a birthday card with some Aussie friends on it. I have a wonderful paper pad from Kasiercraft that I am slowly using up because I love it so much and don’t want it to disappear quickly. This is the card I made with it.

10 06 Kooka Birthday

This card was inspired by a card sketch by the Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge. Their sketch TMS#523 started this card off. And this is that sketch

I had a lot of fun creating with this sketch. I think that it will end up in my favourites pile for me to reuse at some stage. The 6X6 paper pad is called Open Road by Kasiercraft it is Australiana themed and I may have more than 1 pad in my stash 😉 It is unusual to find a paper pad for my country.

Until next time, make the most of the life you are living,

Cool Birthday Greetings

Hello Everyone,
This evening I am bringing you a card inspired by a sketch from the crew over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I had a lot of fun creating with this sketch.

TMS 520

When I first saw this sketch the first thing that came to mind was a polaroid picture in the middle so that is the direction that I have gone.

08 29 Polar Greetings

For this card I used a polaroid die that I have in my stash to create this adorable focal piece. The sentiment I made up on my computer and printed it then used the die. Isn’t the polar bear adorable he is “Winter Bear” from Some Odd Girl. Unfortunately, he is a retired image but I still love using him.

The background paper I made with my Distress Inks and a Various Circle Stencil from Scrapmatts. It is very unusual for me not to use a commercial made paper on my cards but it was also nice to get out my stencils and have a play with some inks.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card creation for Tuesday Morning Sketches #518. They are giving away 2 guest designer spots for sketch #520. I also appreciate all of the likes and comments on my posts. As always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until Next Time Stay Crafty,

Birthday Bear

Hello Everyone,
Today I am sharing with you a card that I have gone down the clean and simple route with. This is definitely not my usual style of card. But of course this card started its life with a sketch and it is #578 from Sketch Saturday.

Sketch Saturday 578

And this is the card that I made with this sketch.

08 29 Birthday Bear

Isn’t this dapper bear just adorable! You can see that I have flipped the sketch to suit the orientation of the image. He is coloured in with Copic Markers. And the papers are from a very old My Mind’s Eye Paper pad that has been sitting in my stash part used. I think that I am going to try using up this paper pad by searching through my sketch archive.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my creation for Sketch Saturday. I appreciate all of the likes and comments. Before you go I would like to leave you with this final thought.

Until Next Time,

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.

07 29 Cupcake Birthday

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

MojoSketch519_450

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.

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
