Just wanted to share a card I made today since I had some free time. I used a image I haven't inked up yet by 'There she goes'. I love using animal images...they are all so cute! I used a simple sketch from The Sweet Stop. The strips is a great way to use scraps! :) I can never seem to make a dent in my scrapbox...I always want to use new paper! :( I made an attempt again to distress the edges...still gotta practice!
Now time to enjoy the rest of the 3 day weekend! :)
Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
Made a quick masculine (I tried) birthday card just for fun. I know it would look better colored but to save time, I paperpieced the bears' bodies. I think this is the first time I used so many bright colors at once! Fun! I used a stamp from Ellzybells, I'm sad that the company had to shut down...I loved the bears especially!
Decided to make a couple more Christmas cards for Operation Write Home. Used a sketch from Clean & Simple. I love using their sketches when I'm making more than one of the same card. Went with traditional colors this time. Stamp by Two Scoops Rice Designs.
Also wanted to share this super cute easel card I made at the make n take at Taj Clubhouse!
I love their characters and stencils! But a lot of work! :)
Can't believe it's almost June! Hope you all had a great weekend!
I love this cat from Stamping Bella! Mavis is the cat's name...sounds like a boy's name but yet it dresses like a girl? Oh well...still like him/her! :) Had some time today to do another sketch challenge...went to Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Paper pieced the dress and used My Mind's Eye DP.
Also wanted to share what I received from my CATS partner for May, Denise.
Here's the extra she included! So pretty and it's purple!
Thank you so much Denise!
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend!
Live life in the present...you really never know!
Lately there's been so many accidents and what not!
Life really is too short...cherish those who are dear to you!
I was really at a loss for a title for this post! Finally got to do a challenge at My Favorite Things. Decided to do paper piecing again and use DP from My Mind's Eye. I'm totally not used to using these colors but it was fun and something different!
Hope everyone's having a great week so far...so glad it's almost the weekend!
Went to All That Scraps for their Weekly Wednesday Challenge. The theme this week is paper piecing. I decided to make a post-it note holder for my May Secret Sister. I used a PI image and paper pieced her dress. Sorry the picture looks off because I just finished it didn't get a chance to flatten it yet so the cover kept popping up. Can't tell in the pic, but I added glossy accents and stickles.
I know...starting early and making a gift bag for Christmas! Plan to make more! Gift bags are easier and fun to decorate! Had this Ellybells image already colored and liked this non-traditional color combo.
Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far! It always goes by way too fast! :( Finally got to do a challenge and this week at Flutter By Wednesday's is "Anything But a Card" and of course include a butterfly, fairy or angel. I decided to make a chipboard coaster calendar for my May Secret Sister. Hope she will like it!
A really quick post...I'm at work now, was trying to post last night but the site was down! :( Colored my 1st black and white image. Still working on my shading though but I still like how it came out. Tried to distress the edges.
Christmas will be here before you know it...literally! I love everyone's creations on their blogs lately! Wish I had more time and mojo! Made 3 more simple Christmas cards for Operation Write Home! My goal is to make 50 Christmas cards...more if possible.
Glad preparing for the craft fair at work is all over! Luckily, I sold some stuff already since my co-workers got bought before I dropped it off! yay. It makes me happy knowing people like what I make. Got to make another mother's day card. Used a cute Penny Black stamp but I'm not too sure what her name is...I only know Mimi. :)
Just wanted to share the final batch of Post-it note holders for the craft fair this week! Finally don't have to worry about it and do things at my own pace. :) I made these a smaller size, 3.5 x 5 frame and used the smaller size Post-it pad.
We'll see how it turns out...
Happy May Day!
Can't believe April is gone already!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Back to work again tomorrow!
I've always loved crafts since I was a kid. Got into cardmaking/papercrafts since 2009 and loving it! I love meeting new people and getting more inspiration to continue this crazy addiction! :) I would also like to share other crafts I make along the way as well!
