Owl-some Owls


Today is Ink N Splatter time.
I had the privilege of playing with the new release Owl-some Owls stamp set.  I also used the paper pack Blossom Bash.  

Raiding my stash I found an old spellbinders rectangles die fir the main part of the card.  Glued the middle down to the card but popped the border to allow shadows underneath for added dimension.  Used an old Couture Creations gum leaf due for the floral corners and an Heartfelt Creations flower to finish each one off.  
Raided my pre stamped sentiments fir one that suited.  Added some Pinkfresh Studio gems and there you have it.  
I just love their big beautiful eyes.

Sketch Saturday is back with another great sketch.  

Another great geometrical sketch.  A couple of sketches ago I used cats on the card.  This time I have both a cat and dog.  

I have been in the mood to make some fun, bright and cheerful projects lately.  I love the colour scheme on this one too.  
I used a stencil with a yellow ink to make the background.  The balloons are in place of the circles.  I did throw a banner in there with sane colours as I felt that space needed something.  
This stamp set is a My Favorite Things Presents and Pupcakes.  
Thank you for stopping by.

Sketch Saturday is here. 
Can you believe we are bearing the end of April already?  This year really needs to slow down   

So a very geometrical sketch this week.  I had a little fun with this one.  I used a My Favorite Things set Catitude.  So many people love cats (me included)and I don't have enough cat cards, so when I seen this sketch, that is what I wanted to add to this.  

I kept the colour scheme simple.  Different shades of purple with shades of grey.  
I did originally try different coloured cats but I did not like it.  And honestly, the cats are the hero of this project.  Definitely " catitude"

It is Sketch  Saturday time again.  
Here is this week's sketch.

I have been gradually familiarising  myself with some of my older sets.  I found some older background stamps.  This one is a very old SU one.  I needed something to fill the background on this.  Firstly I done it on the Very Vanilla panel.  It was too much.  Then I tried it on the Lost Lagoon with Pretty Peacock ink.  Perfect.  

Added some Pecan Pie circles with stamped leaves from the SU Notes Of Nature set.  Coloured those with copic markers that closely resembled the cardstock colours.  Then to take out some of the colours I added white butterfly skeleton die cuts   added a gem to each one.  

Lastly I added a black bannered sentiment.  Not my normal colour combo but I really the finished product.

Wooly Cute


I seem to have a recurring theme happening here.  Baby cards.  And pink ones at that.  No one I know is expecting but this cute stamp set screams baby cards to me.  

I will endeavour to make more if these and in a few different colours.  You can never have too many.  They always come in handy.  
I used the Waffle Flower Postage Collage stencil and dies.  This was my first time using them.  Cannot wait to do more with them.  
Mothers day is coming up.  I can see some cards being made in these items.
Thank you for popping in.  For more INS inspiration head on over to the Facebook group.  
Happy crafting.

Back with Sketch Saturday.  

Went a little different with this one.  

I only done 3 diagonal strip's.  And you will notice they are branches.  Fits with the theme of birds.  
I used the Stampin' Up sale a bration paper that everyone went nuts for.  The bird is from an older set, Free as a Bird.  The bird matched perfectly with the paper birds do that is how I coloured him.  
Added a few little extras to fill, all in marmtching colours.  Pretty happy with this

Sketch Saturday time again.  
I thought I might do a male card for this sketch.

This is a set I bought but have never used.  My aim this year is to get through as many unused sets as possible. 

It is Stampin" Up"s Legendary Ride.  There is a stamp set with a die.  I used a sentiment stamp from the set but mainly just used the dies to make rhe motorbike from black and silver foil card stock.   I used the matching designer series paper fir the cut out panels fir the pattern to match the sketch.  
Thank you for popping in.
