TSOT #124 - Baby Fox

Hi, I'm here to share my card for this weeks sketch at Try Stampin' On Tuesday.

Initially, I thought washi tape, but I dont have any (minor detail :) So after rummaging through my stash, I was inspired by the retired nursery nest dsp. I flipped the sketch and kept my card very clean and simple. I free hand cut the tree and used my 1/2" circle punch to create the leaves. If you have any questions, just ask.

Now over to you, its really is great seeing your creations and how you interpret an sketch. If you want to see the other creations from the design team then click here.

PP150 - Field Flowers

Hi, I'm here to share a card I made for this weeks challenge over at The Paper Players.

Here's the challenge:

And my card:

I went very simple and used marina mist, baja breeze and bashful blue to create the gradient in blues. I stamped them with field flowers in stazon and I added the tiniest bit of bling, with silver pearls.

TSOT #123 - Sponged Poppies

Hello! Well here in S.A. it's well and truly in the middle of winter. We have had so much rain and I think I've gotten wet most days I've done the school drop off - I'm already hanging out for summer!

Any ways I'm here to share my card I created with this weeks Try Stampin' On Tuesday,

I have always loved this stamp, but lately this seems to be my go-to. I coloured the flowers with my blender pen and stamped the splodge from french foliage for added texture. I then sponged the edges - I know dont fall off your chair! For thise that follow me, you know the I very rarely pull out my sponges!  But I think It gives a nice warm feel. I've kept the rest of the card simple. I know that I was a bit 'loose' in my interpertation of the sketch, but I think it still works :)

So now over to you, it's fantastic seeing what you come up with and you can check out the other design teams creations here.

Just Add Ink #169

Hi! Thought I'd pop by and share the card I made for this weeks challenge over at Just Add Ink. It's been ages since I have joined in, but I wanted to give this fantastic inspiration photo a try :)

I went rather simple and pulled my inspiration from the colours and the fact that they were at the beach, hence the birds. I paper pieced the birds in melon mambo, elegant eggplant and tempting turquoise. 

Here's the fantastic photo:

Baby Girl

So I'm back to share the two baby girl cards I made.

I must admit, I'm not a fan of this one, but I think it's healthy to share cards, even if they make me cringe :)

I love the simplicity of this one. The felt hearts are from Kaisercraft and I've had them forever! I used perfect polka dots to add texture and overall this was very simple to create.

So do you have a favourite? Any question, just ask.

Oh Boy

Hi there! Just passing to share a few baby cards that I made. These two are both for the little guys.

The elephant on this card, is a sticker from Kaisercraft. I have stuck this onto scrap card, fussy cut it out and mounted with dimensionals. I used the chevron embossing folder from SU to add texture to the background. I LOVE how modern this card feels and one that I will make again.

This card is a bit more traditional to me. I used some blue card from my scraps and the giraffe is a chipboard cut out. I have also used the chevron embossing folder here too, as I love chevrons at the moment!

So which one is your favourite? I'll be back later to share two baby girl cards I made.

TSOT #121 - Happy Birthday

Hello! It's time again for another sketch over at Try Stampin' On Tuesday. This is my kind of sketch! I found my card came together quite easily.

I embossed the background for the swirl on the corner and used some paper from my stash. I punched out a few butterflies and added a pink button. I used my bow maker to make a three looped bow with some crochet twine and added it tho the top of the button. A few pearls to finish and I was done!

Now I'm sure you'll want to check out the other design teams creations, so go here.

Black & Red Engagement

Good morning! I'm trying to publish a few of my cards, which I have had in my 'to blog' folder for way too long, so here is another card for you.

This card went to my Hubby's cousin, who got engaged. They had a black and red theme engagement party, so thought I'd use that colour palette as my inspiration. It was a fairly simple card and came together quite quickly and a design that I have used for may different occasions. Any questions, just ask.

Thanks for looking :)
