2 Cards 1 Sketch Pt2

Hello everyone, today I am here to share with you a sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge in which I turned into 2 Cards. To see my other card please go here.

01 30 Mum

And here is the fun sketch that started this creative process, Atlantic Hearts Sketch #353

This sketch can be used in a different orientation as my first card showed but also for so many different occasions as well. Time to dive into our stash and find those wanted to use or forgotten stamps that are in our stashes 😉 I know you have them like me.

And if you are wondering, if you’ve seen my first card as well; yes I used the top and bottom of the cuts I did with the die. I thought why not? Didn’t want to waste either my white paper or the blue paper 🙂 Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card projects today. Before you depart my blog today I would like to leave you with this last thought for this post.

2 Cards 1 Sketch

Hello everyone, today I am here to share with you a sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge in which I turned into 2 Cards.

01 30 Fab Bday

 

And here is the fun sketch that started this creative process, Atlantic Hearts Sketch #353

This sketch can be used for so many different occasions and as you can see with my first card I actually turned this sketch on its side. I mainly did this because of the image that I wanted to use. It wouldn’t fit in the portrait orientation unless I moved the line almost to the bottom and then the sketch just didn’t look right.

And if you are wondering yes I used the top and bottom of the cuts I did with the die. I thought why not? Didn’t want to waste either my white paper or the blue paper 🙂 Thanks for stopping in and looking at my card projects today.

Welcome February Quotes

Some Bunny Loves Mum

Hello everyone, yes another card made for Mum and also more of my stash used up.

01 29 Mum2

But if you looked at my stash you wouldn’t think that I had made a dent in it. The box is still looking quite full. This card started with the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches #539.

As I was uploading the photo I noticed that I got the striped paper a little crooked oh well not much I can do about that now. But aren’t these bunnies adorable! I found them in my stash as I was searching for images to use for this card. These 2 are coloured in with my Copic Markers and cut out by hand. My Gemini Jnr took care of cutting out the 2 circles.

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

Frozen Shoulder is no fun. Having steroid injection tomorrow so there is hope for improvement.

Until my next post,
Look after yourself.

Sketch for Mum

Hello everyone, another card completed for Mothers Day.

01 29 Mum

This time I used the sketch from Julie at Mojo Monday #529.

To make this card I got to use up some of the papers that have been sitting around in my stash since last Mothers Day. I had also printed this greeting last year but didn’t get around to using it but it suited this sketch perfectly. It is so nice to be using up stuff that has been hanging around my craft space for so long.

Not so much with card crafting but definitely other projects.

Until my next post,
Work on some of those – UCPs>

Birthday BINGO

Hello everyone,
Yes, another post for the Birthday bash over at Bugaboo. And this is Day 4 Birthday Bingo.

01 15 Bug Birthday Day4

Can you tell which line in the Bingo I used?
It’s the 3rd column: straight up and down – the only change I made was the gems – I didn’t have so I used pearls instead. (Hope this was OK) The image that I used this time around is Circle Sentiments – Birthday Ewe. I have coloured this image in with my Copic markers and I am using more of the Birthday paper pack that I found in my stash. And to cut out the image and my layering circle with my thin dies I was able to use my new Gemini Jnr Machine. I treated myself to this machine after all the problems I have been having with my shoulders. It was expensive (especially in OZ) but I looked at it as a long term investment in my crafting future – just using it on this card I am sooooo happy that I made this purchase. I can use my dies again ((HAPPY dance))

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

Maybe laughing stock isn't such an insult? :)  #funny #cows #farms
Such a better way to look at this saying!

Until my next post,
Find your sense of humor.

Friends Gods Gift

Hello everyone, I have made some cards over the past couple of days. As I said in my last post I have had to make some adjustments to how I do things because of my limited abilities at the moment. But I think that I have worked out the best adjustment for me. But anywho onto the main reason that you stopped on by today … my card

01 15 Friend

This card started with a sketch and this time around it is the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #351. I use to be on their design team but due to my health I had to step down but I still love playing along with the sketches when I can.

Isn’t this a great sketch! As you can see I have turned this onto its side the main reason for doing this is that I wanted to use this long sentiment and it fitted best this way. This is more of the same paper pack from the last card; this sketch was perfect for me getting towards the bottom of the pack because I mainly have strips from cutting bases for other cards.

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

Until my next post,
Do something creative every day.

Candle Trio

Hello everyone, another Christmas card for my growing collection. It feels weird working on next years collection when we haven’t finished this one but I’m not complaining. This card is actually the combination of 2 challenges.

12-06-peace-on-earth.jpg

This is the card that came from the combination of
Daring Cardmakers Shining Lights

and then the sketch #345 from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

The candle stickers have been sitting in my box for a number of years; wonderful to see them being used at last. I am really happy with how these two challenges came together. Found the Peace on Earth chipboard piece in my stash as well and coloured it in with some gold ink. It is so good to be using my stash for my crafting.

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

Until my next post,
Have fun reading a book.
