Sketch and Paper Piecing Challange

The Crafty Angels were looking for Paper Piecing and Get Sketchy Card Challange had a fun sketch. I cut the circles and the star on my Cricut and the little flowers I used my new Perfect Pearls on.

This card was made for the blog Stamp, Scrap & Doodle I recieved this image in an image swap and colored her in with my Copic markers.

The colors were chosen by The Play Date Cafechallange blog.

The sketch for this card is from the Critter Sketch Challange blog. It was a quick card and I used the colors White, Black and another color that I got from the Diecut Dreams Challange blog.

Sketch Card

I found this sketch on the Rose Blossom Legacies Blogspot. I had just finished coloring this image from Stampendous and it all just fell together with a flower I made yesterday. The background paper was made by soaking up left over Glimmer Mist and adding some Distress Ink and then embossed with the Cuttlebug.

I was busy today making paper flowers. I tried different ones from different cartridges. This one is from A Walk in my Garden. This time of year it's all about the little potted plants that are just coming out.

Spring & Flowers

I received this image in a recent image swap. I had a lot of fun coloring her with my Copic markers. I added some stickles on the top of the ice cream. I picked up the Paisley Cuttlebug embossing folder on sale yesterday at JoAnn's.

The Play Date Cafe & Magnolia Stamp Lovers

I finally bought a block so that I could use my new Magnolia Stamp, "Tilda Picking Lilacs". I love lilacs and have 4 bushes in my back yard. The Play Date Cafe had a challange with colors and lilac, green and white fit well with this stamp. The Magnolia Stamp Lovers challange was to use die cuts. Tilda fit nicely in my large nestie.

Challange Card

I'm having a lot of fun playing with my House Mouse stamps and my new Copic markers. I searched and found 4 Challanges that I could participate in with this one card. I'm working to clean out some of my older paper and scraps. (make room for new stuff!) I used two punches, 1st is rounded corners and the 2nd is the MS punch on the half circle. "Spring" fit for one other challanges and then a sketch. I added a little home made flower soft to the flower.

Challange Card

Paper Sundaes challange this week is to use the colors Crystal Blue, Hollyhock and Sweet Leaf. I found, in my stash, paper that had all three colors. It is a Basic Grey paper called Peppermint Stick. The Magnolia image is one that I just received in an image swap and colored it with my Copic markers. She needed something to sit on so I made a swing hanging from a tree branch which I let sweep off the card.

All of the above fit in with this weeks sketch from Sketch Saturday.

A new Challange Blog called The Creative Cottage was looking for something "NEW". This Magnolia image is new to me coming from an image swap I was part of. The tree branch at the top of the page is from a new Cricut cartridge I just picked up called Home Decor.3/17

Caardvarks Challange

I made this card for the Caardvarks Challange from the inspiration of the above picture. I scored the card in 1/4" marks to imitate the bird cage. The butterflies are from a stamp that was given to me and had no markings on it. Felt that it really needed a little pop of color so added some puff paint on the wings of the butterflies and a teal ribbon running along the side.3/18

Susie's Sassy Designs and Sketch Saturday

This card was designed with the colors "Lilac and Aqua" for the challange at Susie's Sassy Designs and a sketch from Sketch Saturday. The image is a clear stamp that I picked up on clearance from JoAnn's and the embossing is the Cuttlebug Script.3/11 - 3/13

Diecut Dreams Challenge Blog

This card was made with a sketch theme from Karen at Die-cut Dreams Challenge Blog. It was a real challange with so many layers and I loved making it.

I've also entered into a Challange from Saturday Spotlight Last week they wanted "messy" cards and this week we were to "clean it up" with clean lines.
