We have a new sketch for Tuesday Morning Sketches,our sponsor this week is SLS Lines. The first thing I did was turn the sketch, I was determined to use this great Masculine set.
I love love this adorable digi set, the images are all pre-coloured which I am developing a fondness for. I also printed off the digital papers that are a part of this set so they were co-ordinating. I used a sentiment for the corner element which I printed off from Word and the layers are popped up with foam tape. I added in a little bit of twine behind the main image.
I think this card was made in record time, I could not resist this adorable wintery scene all laid out on the designer paper just waiting for me to create with it. I pulled out my stitched rectangles (shocker :)) and created a couple of layers, I added some foam tape in between and finished with some white twine.
You have to look close to see the itty bitty tiny heart that the little rabbit is holding :).
Supplies: White card stock, Designer Paper - Lawn Fawn, Papertrey Ink - Signature Christmas, die cutes, twine.

Happy Sunday, I guess I missed posting this card as I found in still hanging about in my drafts :)
With this card I chose a bold DP print and
used a layout of simple design that uses the whole face of the card.
I stamped the
sentiment along a white panel with colours that blend well with the DP and it is
popped up with foam tape. I used double die cuts to make a stitched frame to
put under the top. I finished with some red and yellow gems.

Good Morning all!! I love the soft
colours and fun patterns with this paper. This is the last card in the Live,
Laugh and Love 5 card set.The
sentiments were already on the paper so I just used a stitched rectangle die
cut to frame it and it is popped up with foam tape. I added a number of panels
in behind and finished by adding some twine and sequins.

We have a new sketch for Tuesday Morning Sketches,our sponsor this week is DeeDee Digis. The first thing I did was turn the sketch, I was determined to use this great Masculine set.
Does my little car look to small?....sigh it looked fine when I was making the card but as I eye-ball it in the picture it could have been a bit bigger. I love the little mustached man down in the corner though that is part of the DP I chose to use. The tiny manly print is pretty cool too. The car panel is popped up with foam tape then finished with the sentiment and gears.
to us, the problem though is that I forgot.. worst wife ever. It is a good
thing that my husband and I have plans for the weekend or I might feel even
worse. It is fodder for my sweet husband though, he will relive my forgetfulness
for many many years to torment me J.
I could make all
sorts of excuses, travel, work, general busy. I could tell you I did not see it
on my card calendar but I did but apparently it did not register. I did
scramble to get a card done in record time last night, while hiding the whole
creative process from a husband who seemed to make numerous visits to the craft
room and peeking over my shoulder.
I used a number
of die cuts for the card - thinking that I would do something simple but it never
really turns out that way. I created the background then added the black panel,
the balloons are all popped up with foam tape and I finished with the
and black card stock, Designer Paper – My Mind’s Eye, misc die cuts, twine

I printed off the Designer Paper - Paper Boys and cut it to fit the sketch, for the oval element I switched it up a bit and used the smile die cut three times. I added some texture to the flag and popped the heart up with foam tape and finished with a few pearls.
