This time around I am here to share a card that is based on a sketch from CASe this Sketch and a Color Throwdown challenge. The challenge details look like this …
I dove into my 6X6 paper packs and found Bluebell by Kasiercraft this had a mix of Red, Orange and Blue which suited the colour challenge. I stamped the Butterfly image onto some card stock and sponged Salty Ocean, Spiced Marmalade and Fired Brick Distress Inks over it. Then I stamped the sentiment onto the Red paper.
This card came together a lot quicker than usual I think that this is because I drew out the sketch first and figured out the sizes. Next time this sketch is used I think the 2 smaller elements should be a little smaller – I noted this on the drawing I made.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project today. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought:
Oh you should see mine at the moment. It looks like a bomb hit it! I do need to get into sorting through what is on there though. But I did have fun while making the mess so that is something I suppose!
Have a Happy Crafty Cluttered Kind of Day,
Hello everyone, Yes I am back again. Once I started creating with my stencils I couldn’t stop. I am really happy with how this card turned out. Another type of card that I have a hard time creating – masculine themed cards. But I think that they do lean towards a more subtle type of card.
To remind you this is the AAA card challenge #122
I hope that it was OK to use 2 different stencils for this challenge. This card came to mind while I was making my previous card. I knew the image I wanted to use and then I found the Rays Stencil by Kasiercraft and a Homemade Cloud stencil. I used Wild Honey, Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans Distress Inks for the sponging.
I am really happy with the results and I hope that you like my project as well. I want to thank you for stopping by my blog today. And as always before you leave I want to leave you with this thought:
This is so good. I live to Love, Laugh and Crochet (well Craft)!
Today may you Love, Laugh and Craft your life!
The card that I am sharing with everyone today is for a very special lady, my Mother-In-Law Alison, and I wanted to try my had at clean and simple. I find clean and simple hard to achieve – Do you think I achieved this?
I was inspired by AAA card challenge #122
I love stencils! I have a folder full of them but sometimes I forget that they are there But I got out a favourite stencil – Crafters Workshop Open Flowers and since my MIL loves aqua I chose to use Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and a sponge dauber.
For the sentiment I used a Happy Birthday Die that I got from a magazine – isn’t it pretty. I cut this out using my Cuttlebug and some aqua card stock and some black card stock. Before cutting these out I put some double sided adhesive paper on the back of each to make attaching these to the card a lot easier.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project today. And as always I would like to leave you with this thought:
Oh this is so true. I was questioning trying this style of card but I ended up having so much fun. Because I was sitting at my craft desk and I appreciate any time I get to spend here.
Have a Happy Crafty Soul Growing Kind of Day,
