Hey blog buddies! I've got a little inspiration for you today. I'm going to keep it simple since I have a sick child and who knows how long of a break he will give me. This first card is for the OWH S&S MWT Any Occasion Challenge.
Just For You
What a cutie! My friend Sparkle let me color a few images from By Lori Designs and I'm loving them! I also got to use my brand new Copic markers! FUN! The paper is from a stack I've been hoarding for probably the last 3 years. The sentiment is a SU Level 1 Hostess set called Afterthoughts.
You Mean The World To Me
This masculine card is for the OWH S&S Sketch Challenge #57. I used some more paper from my stash (Can't buy more until I use up some of what I have) and a lot of Tim Holts... the paper was white. I couldn't find the right color so I made it! =) The sentiment is from SU set Word Play.
Well I hope you have all enjoyed! Have a great day!
I made this card with the intentions of it being a card a Hero could send home to their spouse but just couldn't get it to work. So I made a few changes, dropped a sentiment and this is what it came to. It could be an awesome AnyHero card but it could also work as a thank you or for any patriotic holiday. The quilt design came from Splitcoaststampers and the flower was something I came across a long time ago. The ribbon is my favorite part and it's all thanks to my pal Holley!! I don't know how long I had been trying to get this right until she showed me a better way (the right way!) THANK YOU HOLLEY!!
Hey there! I've been stumped over this weeks S&S MWT "On the Farm" and a little amazed that I had no farm animal stamps!! I dug through every stamp and even took a peak at my dusty Cricut Cartridges. Nothing! I probably spent the entire day Wednesday just looking for ideas online when I came across punched art animals. I didn't have all the punches used for most of the animals so I improvised with the sheep. =) Lots of fun but lots of work when you make 6 of these cards!!
Aren't they cute? I always aim to make simple cards and although it may look so, this one was not!! I hand cut the grass and had a lot of playing around with my punches to get things right. Here's my helpful tip: When doing parts like the front hair on the sheep, punch out a full scallop and attach one of those tiny strips of scraps from trimming paper to the back of it and use it like a handle to position back in your punch. You'll get a perfect punch and not have to stress over wiggling it around. Hope that made sense?! I used a small scallop punch and small circle. The 'ears' are a circle out of my daughters punches cut in half...not quite sure of its size but the brand was EK Success. I used the SU Top Note Die and some gorgeous Twine from the Twinery!! I love it's look and thought it went with the feeling of the card.
