Try Stampin no.560

Hello everyone. I was able to make some more cards and I loved the sketch over at Try Stampin (or not) On Tuesday that I followed the design.

I did follow this sketch almost fully. I did only add 3 circles as I like things in odd numbers as I think it is more pleasing and I also happen to have these 3 circles die cuts sitting on my desk. These are some of the last papers from the patterned paper pad I have been working through. This sketch was the perfect way to finish off some of the strips I had left after cutting card backgrounds. I think that I will keep this sketch in my box for use at both the beginning and end of a paper pad.

Because I was at the end of the patterned paper I used some chocolate brown shimmer lightweight cardstock for the background. I matted the background and flag with black lightweight cardstock and added Love From Lizi Pinstripe Stickers in black along the edge of the larger piece of patterned paper just to help give it some dimension.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card made using the sketch from TSOT. I hope that you will find yourself doing something creative.

Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.

52CCT March 2022 Theme Challenge

Hello everyone. Welcome to the March theme challenge over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge.

This card is on the simpler side for me but putting it together took more time than some of my other cards. To make this card I followed these steps
1. Cut a piece of white cardstock to 8cm square
2. Place this piece of cardstock into my stamp platform on a wreath jig
3. Because of the size of the cardstock and stamp I only stamped this 4 times instead of the 8 times that is possible
4. Stamped and inked the sentiment stamp 3 times in different Memento inks protecting each part with a post-it to prevent cross-contamination of the different colours.
5. Coloured in the holly & berries with my Copic markers
6. Inked the edge of the panel with Faded Denim Distress Ink and a blending brush

After making the image panel I cut some multi-colour gingham paper to fit the front of a card before matting this with red lightweight cardstock; I added 3 blue mirror pinstripe stickers from Love From Lizi to the lower part of the panel. The image panel I matted with the same red cardstock before adding foam squares to add a little depth to the card.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card for the theme challenge over at 52CCT. I hope that you come and create along with us and share your makes over on the challenge site. Before you go I would like to leave you with this final thought for this post.

Birthday Greeting

Hello everyone. This afternoon I have had the opportunity to get into my craft room to do both some crafting and some computer work as well. First onto my card creation and it started with a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Tuesday Morning Sketch #641

I didn’t 100% follow the sketch but the reason for this is that I wanted to make a card with the 2nd half of my image that I used on my “Thinking of You” card that I shared last week. Plus also the paper pad that I had on my desk worked with the colours that I had used in the image. I had coloured this image in with my Copic Markers before cutting the first part of the image. This sketch suited the piece that I had leftover. To give a little definition to the image I used some Love From Lizi Gold Glitter Pin Stripe Peel Offs. And some Gold Star Stickers from my stash; not sure who made these.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card made with the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. Before you depart I want to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until my next post,

52CCT January 2021 Sketch

Hello everyone, welcome to a new year of fun challenges with the Design Team from Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge. We are so happy to be back with you all for another year of fun challenges and maybe some that you haven’t seen before of for a long time. But since it is the first week in January we have a sketch for everyone to play along with.

I didn’t do anything to this sketch I created with it just as it is.

01 2021 Wk1 Sketch

All of the papers I used for this card were from my Christmas paper box. The reindeer and snowflake stickers came from a sheet that has been in my box for years. The Holiday Blessings Chunky Die from Paper Rose is a new addition to my craft arsenal and I am loving using it this time I used some gold cardboard to cut it out of. (Why is taking photos of gold so hard?) I also used some Love from Lizi Gold Pinstripe stickers to give the striped paper a bit of glitz.

Thanks for stopping on in and looking at my design team make for 52CCT. I hope that you will come on over to the blog and join in on the fun with our latest challenge. Before you depart my blog though I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

I walk into 2021 knowing that I have challenges ahead of me but if I walk with God then I will be able to face them.

Until my next post,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others.

52CCT September Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,
It is the 2nd week of September which means over at the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge we are playing with colours. Myrna has actually chosen 2 colours for us to play with and they are

02 Colour

Sometimes being restricted by choice can be a good thing. And sometimes not so much! This is the card that I made using this colour combination.

52CCT 09 2019 wk2 Colour

This colour combo gave me a little trouble and the card that I produced wasn’t what I had intended but I am pleased with the results. The sentiment is printed on my computer using the words from a much smaller stamp – I wanted the sentiment to be the focal point of my card so I had to upsize the font. The papers that I used are from a paper pack by Kasiercraft called “First Noel” which came out last year. And I have used some of my new Love from Lizi stickers that I got in the post not that long ago.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my Design Team make for this weeks challenge over at the 52CCT challenge. I hope that we will see your project over there sometime. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.
