Happy Anniversary

Hello everyone, today I am here to share with you a card that I made with the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

And this is the card that I made with this sketch

06 20th TMS610

The picture is actually a Winter image but I decided that I wanted to be in more Spring than the Winter weather that I am experiencing at the moment. So while using my Copic markers to colour this image I added leaves to the branches and bushes plus grass to give a more spring feel to it. I did also use my MFT cloud stencil behind everything as well but the colour I used is quite subtle. The anniversary sentiment is from the Phil Martin Essential Sentiments Set.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and looking at my card make for the Tuesday Morning Sketches #610. I hope that today will find you doing something that you truly love.

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

Hello everyone; how is your 2021 starting out? Well as I am typing this Brisbane, Queensland, Australia is in a 3 day lockdown … it finishes tonight but then new restrictions come into place for the next 10 days and then everything will be reviewed again. So this lockdown has given me the opportunity to get into my craft space and have some fun with my supplies.

Any who onto the main reason probably for you to stop on by my blog to see my Design Team make for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

I didn’t have access to the same shape for the sentiment but I did have something that I had coloured in over the new year period.

All of these papers are from a paper pack that I have been working through. I am loving all of the different types of cards that I have been able to make with it so far. It feels good to be using up items from my stash that way I can add new items to it. I used some Black Nuvo drops as well these are new to my supplies but I am really liking them.

The image block is actually made up from 2 different digi images. The Spring Couple is a retired image from CC Designs and the border stamp was a freebie from a card making magazine that I got quite a few years ago but its still a favourite because you can put any sentiment into the banner so its very adaptable.

Thanks for stopping on in and looking at my card design for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. We would love for you to come on over and play along with our sketch. Before you go off to do that I want to leave you with this last thought for this post…

A good way to look at things especially in these uncertain times.

Until my next post,

Stella Says Sketch 811

Hello everyone, another card that I got to finish up today. And I am happy to say that I have almost finished off the paper pack I have been working through.

Another image from Bugaboo Digital Stamps called “Fun Flowers” which I coloured in with my Polychromos Pencils while at a friends place 🙂 But this card started with a sketch from Stella Say Sketch #811.

You will notice that I actually flipped this sketch because of the image that I chose to use and the placement that I had pre-printed it in before I knew of this challenge. But this is one thing that you can do with sketches – you can spin them to suit the supplies that you have.

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,
Be Kind to Yourself and Others,

Hello Everyone,
I actually got to make a card. But mind you now my craft desk looks like cyclone/twister came following behind me.  My mind was just all over the place while I was working on this project.  Usually I am quite clean – maybe its because I have sat down before this to try and craft but my foot has been too sore to continue. So maybe I was panicked thinking I may not be able to finish.

But I was able to finish … and this is the finished card

I am really happy with how this turned out but as always when I am coming back to card making after being away for awhile I start with a card sketch.  So to start this card I went to some of my favourite challenge blogs to see what sketches are around at the moment.  I found this one below from Freshly Made Sketches

When I saw this sketch I knew the image that I could use with this sketch.  The image that I chose was one that I coloured from a Colour to Calm book that I finished while I have been laid up with my broken toes.

It is nice to use the images that I have been colouring in those type of books for another type craft as well.  I coloured in the image with my Faber-Castell Polychromos.  This card I kept quite Clean and Simple but I am really happy with how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping in and looking at my creation. Before you leave I would like to leave you with the following thought:
GarfieldYeah this is my nights at the moment. I can’t get comfortable – my toes don’t like being under or even in any type of sock and some of the nights have been cooler – so I haven’t been able to get comfortable.

Have a Happy Crafty Productive Kind of Day
