Butterfly Wishes

09 Butterfly Wishes.JPGHello everyone,

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:

I like Einstein quotes so much. #INTP He always says what I would like to say myself, only the rest of the world wouldn't listen to me. It will listen to Einstein though!

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,
❤ Tracy

Sailing Birthday

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!

Aqua Birthday

Hello Everyone,
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:

Vonnegut

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,
❤ Tracy
