Blue Birthday

Hello everyone, today I am uploading a card that I made last night with a sketch from the Design Team at Sketch Saturday. Because if any of you have been around my blog before you know that I love crafting with sketches.

This is the sketch #593 from Sketch Saturday that I got to create with

This card is actually using up some of the last papers from a paper pack that has been sitting in my stash for ages because I didn’t really like the colours. But when I was looking for some papers to create with these ones grabbed me so I didn’t argue with them. Then I stamped the flower image on some mottled light brown paper and coloured it in with my Copic markers. I used some Nuvo Antique Gold Crystal Drops just to add a little something to a plainer card.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project. I am happy to be creating again even if it is sporatically. I am making the most of my good days so that I can rest on my not so good days and know that I will craft again in the future. Before you depart from my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Looking Back

Hello everyone, this card that I am bringing you was started by the Sketch Saturday crew who this week have asked us to look back in their archives. Then choose a sketch to have fun with.

And this is the card that I made for Challenge #592 from Sketch Saturday. The sketch that I chose was this one

This sketch was from July 27th. I did actually make a card for this challenge originally and I have used this sketch since; it has become one of my favourites to use. This time around I decided to monotone with my colours and this is going to be an anniversary card for some friends of mine. The image is called “Love Blocks – Love Conquers All” from Bugaboo Digital Stamps and I thought it would go wonderfully with my black and white monotone colour scheme.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card for this challenge. Before you go from my blog I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Hobnail Tulips

Hello everyone, as I mentioned in my last post I made 2 cards with the same image from Power Poppy. Well here is the other card from that pair.

09 25 Vase Tulips 2

As I also mentioned in the last post this card started with a sketch from Sketch Saturday #582. And here it is again for your reference.

I have used the same die that I used on the previous card to make the swirl but I have only adjusted it a little to fit on the card. This time around I have used a Get Well Soon sticker from my stash. The paper that I have used on both cards comes from that large stash of Recollections Black and White Paper Pad it gives a little bit of pattern without overwhelming my watercolour panels which I wanted to be the focal point.

Thanks for stopping into my blog and having a look at my card project. I want to also say thanks for all the comments and likes on my blog I really appreciate it. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on for this post.

Until we meet again, always remember that you matter,

With Love Bunny

Hello Everyone,
Yes, I got to spend some time in my craft space this afternoon. I can share some of my work with you but not all as some were made for upcoming design team challenges, trying to keep in front of commitments. But anywho onto the creation that I can share now … This card started with my favourite place … a sketch and an adorable Bunny image but more on that later. To start with here is my card.

08 04 Bunny Love

Isn’t this image just adorable it is called Kawaii Bunny … I think that this image could be used for several occasions so I am going to stick this card in my any occasion stash. The image was coloured in with my Prismacolour Pencils and I used purple stickles on the heart on the belly. This card started out with a sketch from Sketch Saturday #575 and this is it

This sketch will become one of my favourites I think; it will be easy to use with any of my paper packs and also leaves space for me to have fun with colouring images as well.

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

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.

Doggone Special

Hello Everyone,

I am combining 2 challenges this time around.
Catch the Bugs

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

Flowers for You

Hello Everyone,
A second card for today. It’s so good to be in my craft space more often at the moment. So while this is the way of things I am making the most of it. And here is the 2nd creation for tonight.

01 06 brat boy mums day

I had coloured in this image ‘Kidz Rose Boy‘ by Bugaboo Digi Stamps with my Copic Markers then I thought that I would suit the sketch from Sketch Saturday if I orientated it differently.

sketch saturday545

The papers this time around is from my stash and I am unsure where I got it from. But again I used some Washi Tape which I adhered to white paper first for the banners. And once I adhered the image to the main panel I used my stamp platform to make sure that I didn’t miss stamp the sentiment at this point in the project. I wrapped a strip of silver around the top but didn’t realise that it wasn’t straight until after I adhered it to the card so I had to leave it as is.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my project. Please consider liking my post or even leaving a comment I like receiving feedback on my projects. And as always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought.
