Freshly Made Sketches 333

This is the sketch for Freshly Made Sketches 333: Here is my take on it: I also used the Pinkfresh Studio’s Little Love stamp set for this as well. The ink for the sentiment is Distress Oxide in Cracked Pistachio. Thanks for stopping by!   This card is available here. You can support A Bit…

CAS(E) This Sketch #218

There is so much potential for CAS(E) This Sketch #218: Here is what I came up with: I stamped a Jillibean Soup sentiment on some ribbon with StazOn and it worked like a charm. I love that ink! I felt like making that middle bar with something other than some paper and thought that the…

Freshly Made Sketches #282

I absolutely love Cecile’s sketch for Freshly Made Sketches #282: How adorable is that!? Once again, I used the opportunity to make a Mother’s Day card: I know it’s a holiday of flowers, but moms are made of all sorts of women and not all women like flowers or pink. Here I went with stars,…

Stamp Ink Paper #90 – shakers

What a neat challenge for Stamp Ink Paper 90: The DT cards are fantastic and I am sure the other cards made will be fantastic too. Here is mine: I inked the card stock with some Hampton Art inks (grey and purple). The planet and rocket ship are coloured with Copics. I used a Jillibean…

Color Throwdown #432

It’s a bright and bold combination for Color Throwdown #432: Here is my card:   The background is stenciled with ink and the stars are JilliBean Soup stamps. My favourite thing about this card is the offset HOORAY 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! (this card is available here)

CAS(E) This Sketch #209

Hi there! It’s a sketch with tons of options for CAS(E) This Sketch #209. It is almost abstract in its simplicity. But one should never let simplicity deceive them… Here is my card: It’s another masculine card with some bright highlights brought in by the die cut pennant the sentiment is stamped on. I used…

S.I.P. #86 – yellow, peach & teal

It’s a colour challenge over at Stamp Ink Paper. For SIP #86, the colours are: It’s a lovely combination evokes a warm spring scene, perhaps a bright Easter morning out in the yard for an egg hunt. Alas it was not to be for this card… I just got a new Jillibean Soup stamp set…

C.T.S. 207

I am trying out a couple new card challenge sites, and first up is CAS(E) This Sketch: I am getting my card in just under the wire: I spray painted some plastic stars, and because it is so cold and wet here they didn’t set 100%. This didn’t ruin them though, instead it gave them…

Halloween craft – notebooks

Hello! I hope September is treating you well so far. Here is another Halloween craft to get you in the autumn mood! I decorated some notebooks I had stashed away so that they had a much more Halloween feel:   With just some stencils, acrylic paint and stamps I made these notebooks way less boring….

CASology 206 – art

I read this week (regarding writing) that one word prompts were ineffective and not challenging. Be it writing or paper crafting, I beg to differ. The cue card this week at CASology is art: Here is my interpretation: I was happy to use one of my newly acquired Darice embossing folders! The stars are Heidi…

C.Y.C.I. 125 – red, grey, white, black

It’s my favourite colour combination for the challenge at Can You Case It this week! I got some new dies and was happy to use a We R Memory Keepers Cut Outs for the chevrons on this card. I like all the sharp angles and the way the colours go so well together. I added…

A.P.W.P. #67 sketch challenge

The challenge over at Always Playing With Paper this week is a sketch challenge: I needed to make a special birthday card and this is the sketch I chose to use for it. I used pink and gold Gelatos for the background, using a dauber and stencil for the stars. I used Fiskars birthday bash clear…
