Joy

Hello everyone,
I am back for a second card project for today. It’s so good to be able to have some time in my craft space. But this happens when you don’t have to do school runs and such 😉 And this is my card
12 19 Joy
I really had fun with this one and I think that I may redo this card a couple more times. The image is a digital stamp Christmas Word Joy from Bugaboo stamps. I use this image quite a lot because you can colour it to suit your papers, very handy that! And to start this card off came the sketch
Stella Says 620
And as I have been doing I have included the measurements to make a front for a A6 card. And also any mats are usually 0.5cm bigger.
The image I printed and coloured with my Copic markers and it is backed with a Christmas digital paper. Then I added this to a piece of shimmer Maroon paper and matted this with green paper. The poinsettia is a die cut that I had left over in my Christmas Stash.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. To let me know that you stopped by please consider leaving a comment. And before you go I would like to leave you with this thought
This is something that I hope to be able to do more of while I am not running to different things over this Christmas/New Year break. I want to do more reading next year – that is a goal for me.
Have a Happy Crafty Kind of Day,

Sunbonnet Sue Sews

Hello everyone,
Today the card I am bringing to you is featuring one of my favourite characters -Sunbonnet Sue. I have been in love with her since I was a little girl because she seems to be able to do everything. Today she is doing a little sewing.

To start the card I went looking on my favourite sketch sites and found Sketch #358 from Freshly Made Sketches which looks like this

FMS 358

Once I found this sketch I went through my 6X6 paper pads and found one from Kasiercraft called Needle and Thread. To cut the papers into circles I used my stitched circle dies from Uniquely Creative. The backing paper is a Royal Blue by Quill; I used my scalloped circle die to make the small circle elements seem a little more substantial. My Sunbonnet Sue type image called Sewsun (retired image) from Bugaboo I coloured in with my Faber-Castell Polychromos.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. And as always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought

 

I sitting here typing this and I am listening to rain on a tin roof. It is such a soothing sound – I hope to spend time just sitting reading, possibly crafting, drinking tea and listening to the rain.

Have a Happy Crafty Book Reading Kind of Day,
❤ Tracy
