#15 Beach


This weeks theme is Beach.  

Revising with slight changes of an old favourite of mine for this theme.  I made this for a class I was having and I had 4 examples to sell in my stall.  As it is very them neutral for a male card it sold out very quickly.  If the man in your life does not have a hobby other than campning and fishing, then this card would be perfect.  A classic keep it simple card, the often do make for the best cards.
All the items used here are Stampin' Up.  
Even the background has the pebble/sandy feel to it.  I had to put a white background behind the watermark as it  just got lost in those little stones.  
Just looking at this fellow, I can almost hear those waves crashing.

Today's sketch is
Now I did a little something different with mine.  I omitted the smaller circle for a sentiment instead. 

And the flourish is 2 light sabers instead.  The random dots I would class the galaxy behind them as that.  
The stamp set used is Galactic Fighters from Kindred Stamps March release.  There were 2 sets released in this them that month.  The other is Galactic Sidekicks
This month they released another 2
Over the next week or so (definitely the or so going by my work load) I will be doing the colour combo's for this set.  I am aiming to do one or two sets every week after that.  Fingers crossed!
Happy crafting!

Koopa and Troopa

Back again for another guest DT appearance with

Digi Doodle Studios

My choice of image this month is this gorgeous little duo

 Koopa and Troopa Sea Turtles

Again keeping it clean and simple.  I coloured this cuties in tropical colours.  The background is a designer paper from Stampin Up's Sale A Bration.  I usded a water stencil at the top in a lighter shade of ink and stamped the seaweed in the true colour of the background to darken the picture to give it depth.  
Threw on a couple of hearts and a sentiment that matched the picture and voila!  You have a cute project to give someone to let them know you care.

Our theme this month was Sparkly/shine.  The with branch is out of diamond glimmer paper.  I have such trouble taking photo's of glitter, so I do apologize.

We are back this week with a new challenge.  

What a mixed bag right?  So I have probably got more than this on mine but I definitely hit the brief.  

3 x Embellishments.  

The big floral heart

  The flowers on said heart

A glimmer border on each panel (a little hard to see in photo)

2 x Die cuts

The wedding couple

The "Wedding Day" sentiment

1 x stamped image

The flowers are stamped and layered. 

Each panel has a background stamp on it but we can pretend that is is patterned paper....hehe.

This was a customer request.  But I loved it so much I am using it for the challenge.

We are back with Fred She Said as our sponsors this month.  
And I got to play with come really cute hummingbirds this month.  

I even googled hummingbirds for a colour reference.  I found a beautiful canvas that had some bright colours, so I used that to base my birds on. 

I think I have found my new favourite bird.  They are so cute!  I honestly didn't use any certain flower for my colour choice.  I just went bright.  So I apologies to my little birds if this is not their food choice....hehe.

Happy crafthing.

is one of our great sponsors this month.  I was lucky enough to work with this quirky image

This is such a cool image.  How many ladies out there wouldn't love to use this for a "knitting" friend?  A few I bet.  And really there is not much else you need for this one. The laughing ladies are the focus so I kept the background as simple as possible.
