Alana Flower Birthday

Hello everyone. I had the opportunity to play with some new purchases from Paper Rose Studios. I was able to buy some flower and foliage dies as part of my birthday present and today I was able to get in my craft space and play with them and I constructed this card.

06 21 SS665

But this make was inspired by a sketch.

It was so good to by creating with these new products to my space and to be able to make another card for a stall that I will be having soon. This card uses one of the very few full sheets of paper left in the paper pad that I have been working my way through. The colour choices for the Alana Flower Die and Foliage Dies came from the patterned paper.

Thanks for stopping in and having a look at my card make today. I hope that you will find yourself having a little down time and doing something that you love.

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

Sketch Saturday no.619

Hello everyone, I am running it close for uploading this card but I had such fun making the card that I wanted to share it with you all.

07 20 Sk Sat 619

Isn’t this sheep adorable 🙂 This is a digi image from a company that is no longer around but it was perfect for the wonderful lady that I was asked to make if for. This card started with a sketch from Sketch Saturday #619.

This time around I followed the sketch quite closely except for the dots – I did 3 instead of 2 but I didn’t have the sketch with me when I was finishing off the card and 3 are what I usually use.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. Before you leave my blog I would love to leave you with this last thought for this post.

For my southern crafter who are in Winter and for my northern crafter who are dreaming of cooler weather.

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

Sketch Saturday #610

Hello everyone, how is your day going? Mine is going quite well – I am having a good pain day so I am getting a few things ticked off of my to-do list. So I am getting a few posts uploaded some going live now and some in the future for my Design Team commitments.

But any who onto the reason you stopped on by – my card project. Well I must admit that this sketch stumped me when I first saw it pop up but I figured it out and the sentiment was unfortunately needed.

And this is the sketch #610 from Sketch Saturday that gave me so much trouble.

I didn’t add any embellishments to this card once I knew that I needed to make this card into a sympathy card. I didn’t think that it suited. But I did want it to have a little bit of difference so I stamped the gum leaves and Protea flowers around the sympathy sentiment just to give it something.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card project. Before you depart my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until my next post,
🙂 Tracy

Scraps Birthday

Hello Everyone,
Yes, another card made from my scraps drawer. I am so happy to be working through this drawer. I thought that I would never find ways to use this and stuff from my stash. As with most of my cards, this one started out with this inspiration from a sketch. This time around it is Sketch Saturday #574.

And this is the card that I made using this as my starting point.

07 29 Butterfly Wishes

I need to admit that I almost threw this card in the bin several times – me and my cutter were not on the same page! I cut things wrong and those pieces are now in the bin. But I finally got it all together even though I didn’t follow my own measurements exactly I still thought that it followed the sketch.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my creation. I appreciate all the likes and comments on my posts. Before you leave I would like to leave you with this final thought.

Sketch Saturday #554

Hello Everyone,
Today I am bringing you a simpler card it just turned out that way as I was crafting it. It came out different to what I had planned but sometimes this happens while I am creating a project.

03-13-with-sympathy.jpg

I am lucky that I was not needing to make this card for any particular occasion. I try to get ahead and make sympathy cards when I am not needing them. So when I found this image in my stash I thought that it would be suitable to make one. Then I found this sketch from Sketch Saturday and everything just came together

Sketch Saturday 554

I think that this sketch could be used in either orientation and I will probably use this sketch again but the other way around. The papers that I used are from an older Kasiercraft paper pack called Tiny Woods. Because of the theme of the card I wanted to keep things simpler so I didn’t add the bow because I didn’t think that it suited.

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

and this Sketch Saturday sketch
Sketch Saturday 550Well with this combination this is the card that I came up with.

02-12-doggone.jpg

I had already coloured in this adorable puppy “Scruffy Puppy” by Bugaboo Digi Stamps with my Copic markers. I just added the hearts above his head and added the grass and clouds once I knew what I wanted to do with the image. I printed the sentiment on my computer because I couldn’t find something that I liked.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. Before you go I want to leave you with this thought
