My time again with Sketch Saturday.  Our sketch for this week is


Now I did tweak this one a little. I was in a minion mood today and simplified the sketch. 



I replaced the diamond with a circle and the sentiment is just one strip rather than 2.  And I omitted the bow.  The image I used was from a Limited Edition box from

Sparkle Glitter and Joy Snowmen

 

Back again with another project in my Guest Designer spot for


The image I had the pleasure of playing with is

Sparkle Glitter and Joy Snowmen



I chose not to use the traditional red and green colours for this Christmas themed card.  Shades of blue and a pop of purple.  I just love these cutie snowmen.  They are just gorgeous!
The shaker mix is a " real" mix. It has some of Catherine Poolers St Cloud mix, Uniquely Creative's Snowy Sequin mix, and glitter.  I even used a couple of snowflakes in the top right corner with a gem on each one for a little more bling.  
Since the snowmen are so lazily draped over the sentiment, I felt there was no need for anymore words on this card front.  I think having it as a shaker is all this card needed.  The background stamp is an old MFT one (I honestly cannot remember the name) and I am sure it was not meant for Christmas cards.  The swirls in it I took to be chilly winds and thought it would fit perfectly with this theme. 
Thank you for visiting my corner of the web.  Happy crafting!

#506 Penny's Paper Craft Challenge

 



We have another great challenge for you this fortnight.  Our sponsor for this round is

and the image I chose to use is

Owl Whisperer


I decided to with this pre coloured image to make some bookmarks.  Youngest daughter was having a sleepover so I made one each for the girls to use.  The set does give you the uncoloured image as well as the pre coloured one.  
I use some fabulous metallic ribbon from SU. This is my favourite mesh and cherish it, so the girls were lucky to receive it.  We all have something in our stash we don't want to part with.  Also used a metal thread to tie the bow.  Just enhances the beautiful image at the center of the project.

Oh and the die I used to make these bookmarks was a Mama Elephant one.

Sketch Saturday time again! Here is our sketch for this week. 


You will notice in my project I omitted the horizontal piece and the bow.  I just felt they did not go with my project.  

I like the simplicity of this one. It allows the character to really pop.  
I did add another rectangle panel behind the character as I didn't like only 4.  The 5th one finishes it off nicely.  If you are into this kind of theme or any fandom, you can find some awesome products at

We are back for another great month of fantastic projects.  There is no sponsor this month so we are free to use whatever we want.  
The theme is
Anything but Square


Love that spiral stencil.  It just fits this theme perfectly.  The stamp I used, the man, the red banner and the sentiment are from a set called Secret Agent  from Kindred Stamps
Granted the card is rectangle so this card totally meets the brief!  
Don't forget to check out all the other DT projects and you can even play along if you like.  We love seeing what everyone comes up with.

Patch

 

\

My project for Digi Doodle Sturdios as a GDT is here again.  
I chose an a Christmas image to work with, as I am getting ahead for the silly season.  



Not your usual combination of colours for Christmas, but I am having fun doing things a little different of late. I started out with blue and silver then for some unknown reason I added pink.  Having done that the base card needed to be the same to make the blue pop.  The blue background is a mix of Broken China and a Navy Oxide (I cannot remember for the life of me and is hidden under all the rubble of craft supplies on my table...lol). I then spritzed water onto the blue background and used paper towel to remove to leave lighter blue patches. 
I did not use a die for the polaroid picture.  I just eyeballed it and used my trusty metal ruler and pen knife.  Sometimes you don't need the real thing.  
A little hard to see in the picture but I did pop the polaroid and then the baubles in the corners.  Adds some dimension to the card front. 
Thank you so much for popping by.  I hope you like my project.  
Happy crafting!

#129 No Patterned Paper

 

Welcome to another great month of inspiration with the CCC Digi Creations challenge blog. 
This months sponsor is Star Jam Lines
I got the one of the cutest images ever.  





A year or two ago I bought some cute little clay clouds.  I finally found a use for  them other than for shaker cards.  This card is now  one of my favourites.  Baby cards seem to be my latest thing.  But then you can never have enough.  Our theme with this image was no patterned paper.  I love making these cards.  And using a soft blue fro the background was perfect.  
Don't forget to check out all the the other DT projects.  And do yourself a favour and check out Star Jam Lines images.  They are just gorgeous!
Happy crafting!
