Well Made Anniversary

Hello everyone, today I am here to share with you a card that I have made for a wonderful couple that I know. I tried to make a card that would suit both of them because they like different things.

10 13 Well Made Anniversary

Can you tell what they love to do? This card started with a sketch inspiration from Tuesday Morning Sketches #524. It stumped me for a while and the card doesn’t follow this sketch …

… 100% but I am happy with how it turned out. I definitely didn’t get as many strips of patterned paper in the background, my calculations went wrong but I still liked how many I got. And I couldn’t undo because I was sticking as I was cutting so that I didn’t get my strips out of order 🙂

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. I really appreciate you stopping by and all of the comments and likes that my posts have been receiving. And as always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

Wee One Bug

Hello everyone, another card made from one of my images that I have watercoloured but this time around I have added some details with pens afterwards.

10 06 BugBoy

This cute little image is called Wee Little Bug from Bugaboo Digital Images and is still available. This card started with a sketch from Stella Says Sketch #716 

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

I kept this card on the simple side because I wanted to let the watercolour image to be the main star. I had a lot of fun both colouring in the image and making up the card as well.

Purrrfect Birthday

Hello everyone, trying to make a card with not many colours makes it harder. But having a wonderful silhouette image to work with makes things much easier.

And this cat silhouette image from Bugaboo was just the ticket. This card I will also be entering into 2 different challenges.

This bingo challenge from Bugaboo which I have used the right column and also a sketch challenge #355 from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Love Always Wins

Hello everyone, I am bringing you an anniversary card this time around. With anniversary cards I am always looking for a different way to present them. This card was inspired by a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketch #521 and here is the card that came from it.

09 22 Love Always Wins

I think that I was able to present a different anniversary card by the use of this sentiment. It is definitely different from the usual. And this is the sketch that I started with.

It is on the simple side of my usual style but I am really happy with how it turned out and I think this could go to anyone. Another thing that I am aiming for in my card making – cards that are suitable for multiple people.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I am glad that you decided to drop on by my blog today. Before you depart I would like to leave you with this last thought for you to ponder on.

Until next time, do something that makes you smile,
❤ Tracy

Christmas Crafting Continues

Hello everyone, when the end of September rolls around most card crafters thoughts turn to Christmas Cards and all the ones that they haven’t made yet. I thought that I was going quite well but with life getting in the way I am behind. So I decided to use a new sketch from Poetic Artistry (Mojo Monday #523) to make a Christmas card.

09 20 Christmas Wishes

And this is the sketch that gave the inspiration

I have been making Christmas cards all through the year this has been helped by being part of a design team 😀 But I am still behind especially with donating some of my cards as well. The papers that I used are from Kasiercraft and it actually finished off a paper pad! I am so happy to be finished, now I can start on another one in my stash. My circles are different sizes to those mentioned in the sketch because these are the ones that I had in my stash already cut so I used them up because at least they were circles 🙂

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I am glad that you decided to drop on by my blog today. Before you depart I would like to leave you with this last image to ponder on.

Until next time, do something that you love,

Chase Your Dreams

Hello everyone, what a lot of fun I am having with the sketch from Sketch Saturday. I have actually made a 2nd card using this sketch; this card is more on the simple side but I am really happy with how it turned out. Card crafting at the moment is one thing I can do without my pain levels skyrocketing 🙂

09 19 chase dreams

I also combined this sketch with another challenge from Shopping our Stash – Dog Days of Summer Challenge.

And just to remind you here is sketch #581 by Heather from Sketch Saturday.

581

The dogs come from a stamp set from Uniquely Creative called “Dreams are for Chasing” and it is still available here. The pups in this set are adorable and so much fun to play with and the sentiment comes from there as well. The papers I used are from an old Kasiercraft paper pack called “Blae & Ivy” which has been sitting in my stash and I am trying to use it up.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I appreciate you spending some of your surfing time in my space. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

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,
Tracy B
