Atlantic Hearts Sketch #265

Welcome back to this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  I'm glad you made it back!  This weeks challenge was super fun!  I decided to use pattern paper, which I never do!  Then I added some Altenew flowers and the 'Just Because' sentiment.  I love the contrast of the pattern paper... I just never use it!  I can't wait to see your creativity!  Happy crafting!

Creative Knockouts - Furry Friends

Mice are by far my favorite critter and I was so excited exploring our sponsor's site Di's Digi Stamps!  I selected Poppy Mouse to use for this weeks challenge.  I printed the image out on my laser printer and colored in using my spectrum noir markers and glitter markers.  I finished off the flowers with some glossy accents.  The 'smile' die cut sentiment is from Lawn Fawn.  I cut out three and stacked them together to add a little dimension to the card!  I can't wait to see what Furry Friends creations you come up with!  Happy Crafting!

Aud Sentiments - Summer!

  Summer is almost here!  I can't believe Memorial Day (United States) is this upcoming weekend!  I cannot wait for a 4 day weekend!  I just love this little critter from our host, Bugaboo - Mouse Big Flower.  I printed him out on my laser printer and colored him in with my Spectrum Noir markers and added a little glitter!  The sentiment is from Crafters Companion - a stamp set I got years ago on HSN.  Thank you so much for joining us at Aud Sentiments this week!  I can't wait to see your Summer Craftiness!

If you Give a Crafter a Cookie Challenge #94

  I've never tried to use an image and create an edge with it - it was a little more tricky than previously expected!  Thank goodness for my Brother Scanncut!  I printed the image on my laser jet printer, added a wee bit of color to his nose, and then cut and cut and cut.... and layer some paper, washi tape, and rainbow tape, till I thought the card was all set!  The sentiment is from a stamp set I got years ago!  I can't even figure out the manufacturer!  Thank you for stopping by If you Give a Crafter a Cookie this week!  The above image is this week's inspiration!  Thank you so much to our host Becky's Place.  The image used is out of her Cattitude Digital Stamps.

Creative Knockouts - Humorous

Go Wild!!!  Humorous is the theme for this week's Creative Knockouts Card Challenge!  We are sponsored by Fabrika Fantasy.  This zebra is just too cute.  I used a sheet of vellum that I had colored with alcohol inks and ran that through my laser jet printer.  I cut just the pool out and then covered it with glossy accents.  The zebra is colored in with Spectrum Noir markers and the sentiment is from Sweet Stamp Shop.  Thank you for stopping by!  Happy Crafting!

Aud Sentiments Challenge! CUTE!

Welcome to another Aud Sentiments Challenge - "Cute & a Sentiment".  This week is hosted by Drawn by Krista.  I just love this little squirrel critter.  The background was made with various alcohol inks, vellum paper, and a hair dryer!  I just love this technique.  I colored in the squirrel with my Spectrum Noir markers and finished off the card with a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.
Thank you for joining us this week!  I can't wait to see your creations!

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #263

It's Mother's Day!  Luna needed to create a special card for a special lady and this was a great sketch to use for our challenge this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch!   The background embossing die cut is from Lawn Fawn and I absolutely love it.  The sentiment is also from Lawn Fawn.  I colored Newton in with spectrum noir markers and added glossy accents to the water in the bird bath.  The died background paper was made with alcohol inks and vellum.  I hope you'll join us for this sketch!  Happy crafting!

If you Give a Crafter a Cookie - Challenge #93

Oh happy day!  It's time for another challenge at If you Give a Crafter a Cookie!  I sure could use a cookie today!  :)  I had so much fun making this card.  The image, Fairy Kitty, is from A Day for Daisies, the sponsor for this week's challenge.  The background was made playing with alcohol inks on vellum and a hair dryer.  I can't tell you how much fun this is. I will definitely have to make this a Technique Tuesday video when I get back up and running with videos!  The wings are also made from playing with alcohol inks on acetate paper.  The Thanks and sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.  Thank you so much for stopping by this week!  Happy Crafting!
