For Robyn

Hello Everyone,
I made this card for the wonderful Robyn from the Spinners and Weavers group it is her Birthday tomorrow and I am going to get the other members to sign it for her.

This card started with a sketch that I have already used but I loved it so much that I wanted to re-use it and here it is

Stella Says 705

To make this card I searched through my stamp set because I wanted to make a card with a baking theme because Robyn besides loving fibre she likes baking. And sometimes we are lucky and she brings in her creations for us to enjoy.

This stamp came from a stamp set that came with an older Creative Stamping Magazine. I had actually forgotten that I had this stamp set so I have left it on my desk to see if it can spark more card making. The papers that I have used are from an older Kasiercraft paper pack called Nan’s Favourites Collection.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I really appreciate all of the likes, comments and visits to my blog. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought

AHSC Sketch 305

Hello Everyone,
Today I am bringing you a card as part of the Design Team for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (AHSC). And this is the sketch that we got to play with this time around.

AHSC 305 Feb 25th DT

This is such a fun sketch to play with. When I originally saw this sketch I was going to use a doily for the scalloped element but I search my stash and I didn’t have one :O I thought that my stash had everything 😉 But anyway this is the card that I made with this sketch


This image is from a card making magazine and I stamped the bird, eggs, and flower image once and then I stamped the flower part of the image twice more. By doing this I was able to layer up the flowers to give a fuller look. I coloured in everything with my Faber-Castell Polychromos Pencils, I have a love hate relationship with this colouring medium but I think that I just need to spend more time working with them.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team project. I hope that you will come on over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog and join with us in using this sketch. Before you go I would like to leave you with this thought

Don’t wait

Until Next Time,
Tracy B
