Well Made Anniversary

Hello everyone, today I am here to share with you a card that I have made for a wonderful couple that I know. I tried to make a card that would suit both of them because they like different things.

10 13 Well Made Anniversary

Can you tell what they love to do? This card started with a sketch inspiration from Tuesday Morning Sketches #524. It stumped me for a while and the card doesn’t follow this sketch …

… 100% but I am happy with how it turned out. I definitely didn’t get as many strips of patterned paper in the background, my calculations went wrong but I still liked how many I got. And I couldn’t undo because I was sticking as I was cutting so that I didn’t get my strips out of order 🙂

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card project today. I really appreciate you stopping by and all of the comments and likes that my posts have been receiving. And as always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

Aussie Birthday

Hello everyone, a birthday card with some Aussie friends on it. I have a wonderful paper pad from Kasiercraft that I am slowly using up because I love it so much and don’t want it to disappear quickly. This is the card I made with it.

10 06 Kooka Birthday

This card was inspired by a card sketch by the Tuesday Morning Sketches Challenge. Their sketch TMS#523 started this card off. And this is that sketch

I had a lot of fun creating with this sketch. I think that it will end up in my favourites pile for me to reuse at some stage. The 6X6 paper pad is called Open Road by Kasiercraft it is Australiana themed and I may have more than 1 pad in my stash 😉 It is unusual to find a paper pad for my country.

Happy Bird-day

Hello everyone, today I have gone right out of my comfort zone and I have made a one layer card. I definitely don’t do this style I love my layers but I have popped the one layer panel up on some foam for a little dimension.

09 27 Happy Bird

The reason I went down this route is because of the post by Melissa who made the sketch this week at Tuesday Morning Sketch #522. She said that for this sketch she saw it as a one layer card. So I decided to see if I could make this sketch …

… into a one layer card. I am really happy with how this turned out and I actually had a lot of fun conceiving how to make this happen. I used a bird layering stamp outline and made a mask first. I used a Tim Holtz Stencil called ‘Leafy’ with 2 Distress Ink colours called Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn. I applied the ink with my new ink blending brushes, I am loving using these on stencils. After the stenciling was finished I then used the layering stamps to finish up the bird. Then I finished the card off by popping the panel up on foam and layering it on some dark blue cardstock and a card base.

I am happy that you decided to stop by and see my card project. Also, thanks for all of the comments and likes on my projects because I appreciate it. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought to ponder on.

No place like home

Until next time, find your happy and spend some time doing it,

Love Always Wins

Hello everyone, I am bringing you an anniversary card this time around. With anniversary cards I am always looking for a different way to present them. This card was inspired by a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketch #521 and here is the card that came from it.

09 22 Love Always Wins

I think that I was able to present a different anniversary card by the use of this sentiment. It is definitely different from the usual. And this is the sketch that I started with.

It is on the simple side of my usual style but I am really happy with how it turned out and I think this could go to anyone. Another thing that I am aiming for in my card making – cards that are suitable for multiple people.

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

Until next time, do something that makes you smile,
❤ Tracy

Cool Birthday Greetings

Hello Everyone,
This evening I am bringing you a card inspired by a sketch from the crew over at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I had a lot of fun creating with this sketch.

TMS 520

When I first saw this sketch the first thing that came to mind was a polaroid picture in the middle so that is the direction that I have gone.

08 29 Polar Greetings

For this card I used a polaroid die that I have in my stash to create this adorable focal piece. The sentiment I made up on my computer and printed it then used the die. Isn’t the polar bear adorable he is “Winter Bear” from Some Odd Girl. Unfortunately, he is a retired image but I still love using him.

The background paper I made with my Distress Inks and a Various Circle Stencil from Scrapmatts. It is very unusual for me not to use a commercial made paper on my cards but it was also nice to get out my stencils and have a play with some inks.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card creation for Tuesday Morning Sketches #518. They are giving away 2 guest designer spots for sketch #520. I also appreciate all of the likes and comments on my posts. As always before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

Until Next Time Stay Crafty,

Wonderful You

Hello Everyone,
I am here to share with you a card that could be used for multiple occasions. This is because of the image that I chose to use on this card. But this card started with a sketch first and then I found an image that would work with the design and this is the card that I came up with.

08 04 Wonderful You

Because this sentiment is such a general one this card will be able to be used for so many different occasions. And this is the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #514 which started this card making off.

TMS 514

The off the project square threw me at first but then I decided to actually cut the layers instead of laying the items on top. I think that this helped to make this card look quite unique even though it is a simple design.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my card even though I am running close to the shut off for this sketch challenge. I really appreciate all of your comments and likes on my creations. Before you go I would like to leave you with this last thought

Creative and beautiful

Until Next Time,

No Pattern

Hello Everyone,
I am here to share with you a card that I made with a mix of 2 challenges.
The first is one from Cute Card Thursday
NO PATTERNED PAPER!
and a sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #513

TMS 513

When I read the challenge on Cute Card Thursday I was a little thrown because I am so used to using patterned paper on my projects. But then I thought about it a little and this is the card that I came up with.

07 27 Reindeer Christmas

So instead of using patterned paper, I used an embossing folder for the background. The panel on the left was made using bronze washi tape. The reindeer sticker is from my stash and has been sitting at the bottom of it for many a year so I am very happy to see it used. The sentiment circle came on the front of a card making magazine.

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