Giving Up Makes It Permanent

Tomorrow I am going to a craft show and doing a couple of classes.  To get in the groove for it, I created this card:


I would like to enter:
Feeling Sketchy - Sketch
http://feeling-sketchy.blogspot.com/2019/10/sketch-227.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Rosie's Studio.  I added two pieces of green grosgrain ribbon.  The image is from A Day For Daisies and the sentiment is from Décosse's Dynamite Doodles.   I added a die-cut leaf tendril cut with a die from Memory Box and then added a flower embellishment to it.  Colouring is with copic markers.

Snow Much Fun

I thought that I was quick off the mark but I'm only the third entry for the Month Of Holiday Cards.  Those other two before me must have been really quick!


I usually repeat the outside paper on the inside but covering the whole of the inside was not going to work with this style of card so I just included a strip that is hidden from the outside:


I would like to enter:
Beccy's Place - Month Of Holiday Cards - A is for
https://beccysplace.blogspot.com/2019/11/day-1-a.html


My A is for are:
Aperture 1 Card - Beccy's Place tutorial
Angel image - Snow Angels set
Aqua colour - paper, scarf and some of the gemstones
Antique White colour (snow angel)
American Rose colour (nose)
Alice Blue (halo, wing contrast, and under snow angel)

The paper that I used comes from a paper pad by Bo Bunny.  Colouring is with copic markers and Wink Of Stella with some inking around edges using Distress Ink - Mermaid Lagoon.  I also added a sentiment (which I think comes from a retired set as I couldn't find it in the store) and some gemstones.

I just found the origin of the sentiment - It came from a set called Finn In The Snow Set.

Just Keep Swimming

As we near the end of the year, I have a few swimmers who won't be swimming with me next year as they are going  out of the area for secondary or tertiary education.  I like to give them a little something to encourage them to continue swimming in their new location.



I would like to enter:
QKR Stampede - Anything Goes
http://qkrstampede.blogspot.com/2019/10/qkr-stampede-challenge-369.html

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft called Coastal Escape.  The image is from QKR Stampede and the sentiment is a digital sentiment.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I also added some water splashes die-cut using a die from Sissix.

Bounty Of The Season

I should be in bed by now, but I want to get all my October cards uploaded before I do. 



I would like to enter:
Patties's Creations - Autumn

Hello

This is the second last minute card.  I really need to make sure that it makes it in today as next month's challenge is the annual Holiday card challenge and it won't fit that theme!

Happy Birthday

My hayfever is still troubling me most days.  It isn't so bad if I don't go outside - but I can't stay inside all the time!  It isn't as bad this morning as I stayed in most of yesterday so I have had the energy to create this morning:



I would like to enter:
The Outlawz Wednesday Challenge - Sketch

Halloween

Inspired by the digital paper, I created a little Halloween scene:

Everyday Moments

I think that I have used all the elements on this card - I just have some doubts over the newsprint.  I have used a patterned paper that was set out as a newspaper page.  I'm hoping that counts!

This post is a little photo heavy as there are four different views of the card:





I would like to enter:
The Butterfly Challenge - N is for...
https://butterflyspotchallenge.blogspot.com/2019/10/130-spin-butterfly-wheel-with-n-for.html



I have followed the tutorial for a Never Ending Card from The Butterfly Challenge.  The paper I used for the rectangular pieces is from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  I die-cut butterflies using several dies from Memory Box.  For the little squares, I added some stickers as well as the die-cut butterflies.

I have used a pink digital paper from Lozzy.  I die-cut the die from Creative Expressions using black cardstock.  The image is from Digi Doodles Studios and has been coloured using copic markers and Wink Of Stella.  The sentiment is from a christmas paper pad by Kaisercraft.  I added some buttons as a finishing touch.

Witching Hour

I really wanted to make this card but I haven't had much opportunity to craft over the past couple of days.  With my hayfever relatively under control this morning, I was able to finish the card:

I followed the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

October

I wanted a balance of the four colours in this card - not sure that I have enough purple as it is hard to pick up the purple on the bats' wings.  I added a sentiment that had purple in it to help balance the colours.

Trick Or Treat

Here is my third card for the October BINGO Challenge at Catch The Bug.


I would like to enter:
Catch The Bug - October BINGO (Bottom Row = 3 Layers + Orange + Ribbon)
http://catchthebugblog.blogspot.com/2019/10/october-bingo-challenge.html

I have used a paper from a Halloween paper pad by DCWV.  The image is from Bugaboo Stamps and the sentiment from Scribbled Kidz.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I used the three colours from the image for the layers behind both the image and sentiment.  I added an orange polka dot ribbon and some candy corn stickers.

Happy Birthday

We are starting look more springlike in our weather.  The sun is shining again today so that is two mornings in a row.  Sadly, yesterday it didn't last for long before it got cloudy and windy.  I'm hoping it will hang around for longer today.

At least with it being unpleasant outside, it gave me more time to craft.

http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/saturday-paper-a-la-mode/forum/topics/saturday-paper-a-la-mode-challenge-october-12th-thru-october-25th

I have used a paper, border and sentiment from a paper pad by Kaisercraft.  The image is from Oddball Art Company.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I also added some Glossy Accents to the heart, her lips (looks like lip gloss now) and her eyes.  I added some gorgeous pink ribbon that I had in my stash along with some pink flower shaped buttons.

Get Better Soon

The line of BINGO that I used for this card had the option "Players Choice"  I have chosen that to be "Follow a sketch".

I have used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft on the right side of the card.  The left side is pieces from my offcuts box.  The image and sentiment are both from Bugaboo Stamps.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I die-cut some borders and then inked the edges with two of the colours used on the card.  To finish following the sketch, I have added three half-pearls.

Spring Has Sprung

Well, Spring has meant to have sprung.  Many of the days lately feel more like winter than spring.  The sun was out for a while this morning so today wasn't as cold as it has been but it definitely doesn't feel like spring weather at the moment.  So I created a spring card to remind myself that it is meant to be spring! 



I would like to enter:
Catch The Bug - October BINGO (top row - flower and ticket and gems)

Halloween

The sun is shining today.  Considering that we are nearing the end of winter and that the temperature recently feels like it is still the middle of winter it is good to see the sun.  Maybe summer is finally on it's way.

I have used a paper from a paper pad by DCWV.  The image is from QKR Stampede.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I added some Halloween stickers.  I have had a real struggle finding Halloween embellishments as this country doesn't really celebrate Halloween in a big way.  I did find three sticker sheets so I bought those.

Halloween

For a change, I am not last minute for the progressive challenge at The Outlawz.  I am having a bad time with hayfever at the moment so I'm trying to complete things on my good days.  If I stay inside, it does abate somewhat but I can't stay inside all the time!

I have used a paper from a Halloween themed paper pad.  The black bat paper is the reverse of the orange paper.  The image is from Polka Doodles and is called Winnie Wednesday.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I die-cut the sentiment using a die from Sissix.  The die is actually a negative space die so you end up with all the letters as well.   I found a few Halloween stickers a week ago and I have added some of those too.

Dream or Nightmare?

When I look at this image I have to wonder if she is snoring her way through a dream - or is she screaming during a nightmare?

Happy Birthday to one of my coolest friends

After over a week of being under the weather and consequently barely touching my cardmaking supplies, I felt a bit more energised today and have created a couple of cards.  I haven't entered the Crafty Sentiments Challenge for a couple of weeks.  I printed out an image at the beginning of the last challenge and then had no energy to get it any further than that!

Happy Birthday

The Crash Your Stash Challenge at The Outlawz Challenge encourages participants to use up items that they have in their stash.  This month was a good one for me as I have had this vellum set that I got in a magazine from Papercraft Inspirations for some time.



I would like to enter:
The Outlawz Crash Your Stash Challenge - Vellum
http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/crash-your-stash/forum/topics/crash-your-stash-september-october-vellum

The background paper is a pink one from the vellum set.  I cut the image so that a border of the pink shows under the vellum.  The image is from We Are 3 Digital Shop and has been coloured with copic markers.  The vellum and the sentiment are also from the vellum set.

Merry Christmas

This week's optional twist at CHNC is "Include A Stocking".


I have kept the background white and just added the Santa holding the stocking and a candy cane along with a sentiment on a strip of ribbon.

I followed the sketch at Stella Says Sketch.

Hey!

The Butterfly Challenge is up to the  letter M with the prompts of Mandarin, Magnolia, Mint, Metal Charm, Marker Pens, Magic Card and of course the butterfly.

I have used all seven elements.

This is the front where you can see all three colours alongwith the metal charm and the butterfly.

 
And this is the inside with the marker pens and the magic card.

Penny's Paper Crafty- Anything Goes
http://pennyschallenges.blogspot.com/2019/10/welcome-to-pennys-challenge-451.html

I have used a textured paper for the front of the card.  I had been saving this for the right project and it was just perfect for this one.  The butterfly is a Memory Box die which I cut in Magnolia and Mandarin and pieced together.  The sentiment in the magic window is from Beyond The Fringe.  I couldn't find a cardstock that I wanted to use for the sentiment so I used Distress Inks to ink over the sentiment piece.  I added stitching using a mint coloured copic marker as well as a Mandarin coloured copic marker.  The charm on the front of the card is one of a set of butterflies that I bought a couple of years ago - I now wish that I bought more of them as I have used most of the ones that I had.

Merry Christmas

And this is the second card that I made using the sketch at CRAFT Challenge as inspiration (the first one was posted earlier today).

This is a bit more like Christmas usually is in New Zealand.  We are in the middle of summer for Christmas so Santa would be much more comfortable in shorts and jandals instead of sweltering in his suit!

I followed the sketch at CRAFT Challenge.

Peace and Joy To All

My favourite type of challenge is a sketch challenge.  CRAFT Challenge have a sketch this week so I will be participating with two cards.  This is the first of them:

Guest Designer for Cheerful Sketches

This month I am a guest designer for Cheerful Sketches.  This month there is a sketch to follow which can be found here.  Sponsors for the challenge are A Day For Daisies, Bugaboo Stamps and Besties. 

It is now time for the 1st reminder - and that is where my card appears.

I have used an image from Bugaboo Stamps called Autumn Jar:



I have used autumn colours to match the theme of the image.  I used a paper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft along with some offcut pieces for the squares.  Matting is orange cardstock.  I also added some washi tape.  Colouring is with copic markers.
