TMS #681

We’re back with a new sketch on the TMS blog today! Check out the new one…..

Here’s mine!

I found this embossed panel first and I’ve had it for so long in my stash that I wanted to use it. I then went with some border stickers from Crate Paper’s Farm House collection. The sentiment is from a fun autumn sticker book by Carta Bella and the little owl is from Carta Bella as well. A simple but fun card.

Head on over to our blog and see the really great bird cards our team has for you this week and feel free to play along with us. What birds do you have to share???

See you on the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog!

Here we go folks! The first sketch of October over at Tuesday Morning Sketches!

It’s a pretty one!

I have another fun fall card with this one.

The DP is from my stash. The die cuts I used are the swirly scribbles from Stampin Up. I added some sequins from my stash and a sentiment from Our cute little owl there is from Michaels. I have a big pack of them so he may show up on another project!

Head on over to the blog to see what the rest of the team has created and to play along, we can’t wait to see what you create.

Owl Card

Yay! It’s Friday!  That doesn’t really mean that much to me, since I work weekends and shift work so I don’t have a weekend in the traditional sense, but hey! I’m excited for you if that’s how you roll 🙂

It’s a brand new challenge for you at Creative Corner Challenges this week.  Let’s think outside the box and come up with some unusually shaped cards..anything but square or the traditional rectangle.  The DT has some great inspiration for you on the blog this week.

Here’s mine!


I decided to break out my Wild Card Cartridge and one of my favorite ones on it is the Owl.  So I cut it out usual some Basic Grey Nook and Pantry paper.  I’ve had it forever in my stash!  I then added just some stickles for definition because that paper is pretty loud…LOL

It’s just a simple card because I am sending it out in the mail for an RAK so it can’t have a lot of embellishments on it.  I hope you like it.

Stay tuned because we’ve got some changes coming up in May on the blog.  Fun Fun Changes. 🙂

Who’s the Cutie

So on the CanadianScrapSwapChat board, Rachel has started a new monthly challenge.  It’s called the Use Your Stash Kit Challenge.  The object is to make a kit using product you already have on hand and use it to create a variety of different projects.  So this is my part #1 the Layout!

I decided to crack open my Crate Paper Little Sprout set.  I have had this before Riley was born and he’s almost 3 now.  It was always my intention to use it to make layouts for his pictures I’ve just never gotten around to it…so this was the perfect time.  This was our sketch

And here is the layout I created from the kit that I put together

These are pics that were taken of Riley on his first trip to Cuba.  He is about 6 months old here.  I can’t help it..I think I have the cutest kid!.  I hope you enjoy this and if you want to, come join us on CanadianScrapSwapChat.  We are always looking for new members (free to sign up).  We have lots of challenges and prizes and lots of fun scrappy chat.  The board is open to Canadian residents only.  Let me know if you are interested and I’ll make sure you get in quickly 😉

New Cards

I had to make some cards for a swap in my Just Cards and my Crazy Card Makers groups on Yahoo. 

The theme for the first one was fantasy, so some kind of fantasy creature..I chose a dragon digital that I had found and colored it with my copics.  I also used some of my older K & Company paper that I have had forever (I’m trying to use up old stock)


Next theme was just a spring card, remember, I’m still learning how to use my Copics.  I didn’t at the time have the right color for faces but I tried the best I could.


and finally the theme was  an ‘X’ I chose ‘xoxoxo’


Christmas with a twist

That’s the theme for the challenge on Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.  A Christmas card with no red or green.  It’s actually not as hard as you would think and it makes a nice change from all the traditional color.  I used some light blue and cream cardstock from my stash as well as a sheet of christmas paper from a stack pack I picked up at Michael’s last year.  The images were stamped for me by my friend Lisa so I’m not sure which stamp set they are from.  I colored them with my Copics (E55, E35, B00), and inked the edges with Tim Holtz’s distress ink in Vintage Photo.  The snowflakes are from Making Memories Winter Blossom set and it’s a MM snowflake brad in the centre.  The ribbon is just some that I picked up at the dollar store.
