52CCT September Theme Challenge

Hello Everyone,
It is the 3rd week of September which means it is time for a theme challenge over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown. Myrna has chosen this theme for us to play with

03 Theme

I thought that I had plenty of bear images that would be suitable for use on a Christmas card. I have bear images but not many that would go on Christmas cards. This is the card that I came up with

52CCT 09 2019 wk3 Theme

This bear is quite a large image but I wanted to try using watercolour pencils so having a larger image to work with made this first time a little more workable. I did use too much water but I used my trusty heat tool to dry it out 🙂 It’s definitely not perfect but I liked how it turned out. The Christmas lights stamp came from a Lawn Fawn stamp set called “Baah Humbug” which is still available. The paper behind bear is from my stash and has been sitting in there for years just waiting to be used.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team work for 52CCT. I hope that you will stop in on the blog and maybe even play along with our Theme challenge. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post

Feel Better

Hello everyone, another card for the Stella Says Sketch challenge just because I had time and I had the supplies in front of me 🙂

09 20 Feel Better

Yes, this is the same paper pad from my previous post. The Kasiercraft paper pad was still sitting on my desk so I thought why not make a 2nd card using the same supplies. The sentiment circle is a part of the pad but the sentiment is from the “On the Mend” stamp set from Lawn Fawn, which is available here, so are the 2 cute images. I also did a little bit of paper piecing which I haven’t done in ages.

And just to remind you here is the Stella Says Sketch #715

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

Until next time, do something that you love,

52CCT May Theme

Hello Everyone,
Today is the 3rd week in May and this means it is time for a Theme Challenge with the Design Team from 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. And Rosie has chosen this theme for us to play with

I have to admit that this one stumped me as to what to make for quite awhile. But this is the card that I came up with

52CCT 05 2019 wk3 Theme

I decided to have a play around and just started making something. I knew that I wanted something other than people singing. I knew that I had this “Baaah Humbug” set which I used this sheep image and the song book came from a 2nd Set called “Holiday Party Animal” both stamp sets are by Lawn Fawn. I coloured these sheep in with my Copic Markers. Then I needed to find a background paper suited and I thought I had some sheet music paper but I couldn’t find anything in my stash.

So I used the string of Christmas lights from the Baaah Humbug set and some musical notes from another set. After I stamped this out I thought that the background was a little plain so I decided to do a splatter technique. I got out my spatter cubby and put the background in it then I got 3 Distress Inks, my spray bottle, a small fat brush and a stamp block and had some fun flicking ink. I must admit that I had to trust the process. After setting the panel aside to dry I rubbed the ink pad onto sections of the card base so that the colours would co-ordinate with the panel. Then I assembled everything together gluing the panel directly to the base but popping up the sheep on foam tape.

Amen 🙏🏽
