365 Cards: Day 53 - Super Sketchy Sunday (Sketch by Pam Maas)

It's Sunday! Not just any Sunday, but a Super Sketchy Sunday brought to you by the 365 Cards girls! :)

Are you ready to play along and create with another of Pam's wonderful handmade sketches? Okay, enough talk, here's the sketch.

And of course, my personal take on the sketch is again a bit "out of the box".  I hope you get some inspiration out of it though.

I went CAS this time, with some distressing.  The ribbon and the sweet spot with the butterfly are some pretty stuff from Precocious Paper.  The sentiment is a Hero Arts clear stamp stamped in with Ranger Sepia ink.

Pop over the other Sunday girls' posts for a little more inspiration.  And then it's your turn to play!

Challenge Entry: Amelia Gift Tag

Here's another one for Top Tip Tuesday's Spotty, Dotty challenge.

It is a gift tag featuring Amelia from The Greeting Farm OA-Surprise set.  Isn't she just adorable.
Everything else on the card are bits of scrap I had lying around.  The gift tag only measures 3" by 4 1/2" so those tiny bits just fit perfectly.

I coloured Amelia with my copics and fussy cut her.  I adhered her on the card with some foam dots for that extra pop.  The sentiment is also from the same OA-Surprise set.

Have a great week ahead everybody! :)

Challenge Entry: FFF Challenge - Classic Patterns

I was chosen winner of the last FFF Challenge: Good Things Come in Small Packages over at The Greeting Farms blog. Woohoo!!!

And this week, I am back with a new card this time for their FFF Challenge: Classic Patterns.

This week, we'd like to see you use a classic pattern on your project!  Any classic pattern will do: houndstooth, stripes, polka-dots, herringbone, chevrons, etc.

I used Amelia from the OA - Surprise rubber stamp set.  And I went for spots and stripes! :)

My project is a gift card holder for my friend's little girl who turned 2 years old a few days ago.  Yeah, I am sending it as a belated present.  I personalised it by using glitter foam letters fro American Crafts Thickets and mini alpha stickers from KaiserCraft.  The pink paper and ribbon are scraps.

Here's another angle to show off the pretty image of Amelia.

I hope you like what I showed you today.

Here are some more challenges for my little project -
1. Top Tip Tuesday - Spotty Dotty
2. Anything Goes @ Anything Goes

Challenge Entry: Mojo Monday 235

It's been a while since I last played along with a Mojo Monday Challenge.  And so, this is me joining in on the fun! :)

Here is my card.

And here is the sketch.

I used DP from a Heidi Grace Designs paper pack. The blue cardstock matting, I ran through my Cuttlebug with a swiss dot embossing folder. The butterfly is punched out of a Martha Stewart puncher.  The pearls on the butterfly is by KaiserCraft. The focal point is an MFT Die-namincs die cut.  And I used the negative, too! :)  The ribbon is American Crafts.  The sentiment is from a Hero Arts clear stamp. 

I am also submitting my card project to these challenges -

The sentiment is from American Crafts stamped in with a Memento Brilliance ink.  Some pink rhinestones for accent.  And a pop of pink on Anya's cheeks with my Copics.

Happy Easter to all! While there are Easter and Spring challenges left and right, we at CCCC decided to do something else this fortnight.

My card for you this time showcases the Victorian Beauty digi.  Isn't she pretty? :)

And here is my card.

Challenge Entry: Priceless Card

I've been in some sort of hiatus for a while. And it's a bit difficult to get the mojo flowing back.  So here's a warm up card.  It's a CAS card and I made it under 30 minutes.

I used a (modified) sketch from Card Patterns.

And I was inspired by these suggested techniques from -

1 - Paper Play Challenges - Shaped Card
2 - Kaboodle Doodles - Anything But a Rectangle
3 - Truly Scrumptious - Use Lace on Your Card
4 - Moxie Fab World - Practical Solutions: The DIY Embellies Challenge
The focal point of my card is the "tag" on the centre.  The oval doily is a die cut I cut out of my Cuttlebug with a MFT Die-namics die.  I punched vertical slots on the short sides of it with my EK Success puncher.  I stamped an image from an Inkadinkado clear stamp set.  Then a slipped a Really Reasonable Ribbon lace through the vertical slots.  I liked how it turned out. :)

Thanks for dropping by today.
