Freshly Made Sketches #110

Hey Everyone

The lovely Rita has designed a fabulous sketch for us at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  This sketch has so many possibilities and I can’t wait to see what you do with it.

Freshly Made Sketches #42

Hey Everyone

I love sketch challenges – I’ve probably said that heaps of times – but I thought I’d say it again just in case you’re new to my blog.  I try and enter as many challenges as I can squeeze in, in my limited crafting time.

Freshly Made Sketches is one of my favourite sketch challenges as it makes me try a more “cleaner” style of card than I normally create.  Here’s this weeks sketch:

I’ve used this weeks sketch to make my monthly “man card” and tried my hand at making clouds for the first time (I think I’m technique challenged, so I’m making myself learn new things). I got so carried away with the clouds, I tried them out on my tag too! Here’s my card:

Thanks for taking a look.

Products Used:
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Night of Navy, Night of Navy DSP, Always Artichoke
Ink: Night of Navy, Always Artichoke
Stamp Sets: Up, Up & Away, Lovely as a Tree
Other Products: Scallop Circle Punch, Hemp Twine, Button, Tag Punches, Crop-A-Dile

21st Birthday Card

Hey Everyone

I’m going to surprise you all with another post tonight and this time unbelievably it’s not for a challenge!  Shocking, I know.  It’s been ages since I’ve posted anything other than a card for a challenge.

My niece is turning 21 (don’t know where those years have gone!) so I’ve made her a card that hopefully matches the theme colours from her party – Black & Pink.

Here’s my card:

I’ve used Melon Mambo and Basic Black for her card – which is a slightly brighter combo than I would normally use! So I’ve gone with lots of layering, the balloons from Up, Up & Away and I found some white wire that I’ve curled and tied into the bow – along with a key, of course.  I’ve also added some bling because I know she loves everything bright and sparkly. Hope she likes it!

Thanks for stopping by.

Cheers

CASE Study Challenge #72

Hey Everyone

Here’s my 3rd and final post for today.  My card tonight is for the challenge at CASE Study Challenges – click here to take you to their blog and check out the creativity going on there.  I pulled out an old favourite tonight – Favourite Teddy.  When I first heard about Stampin’ Up! I was shown this set and I HAD to have it.   It was retired by this time, so my SIL Jules found it on ebay in America for me. I can’t quite remember how much I paid for it, but it didn’t matter and I think I paid as much for postage as I did for the stamp set!

CASE Study Challenges muse this month is Jen Rzasa and this is her card that we used for inspiration:

Here’s my take on her card:
