Cherish The Moments

Until today, I hadn't made a nautical card for quite a while.  I had to have quite a hunt for my nautical ephemera which after a long search I did find.

Happiness seems made to be shared

 When I looked at this image of these ladies with 'kerchiefs, I thought that they could be sweaty and wiping their face, crying and wiping away sad or happy tears.  I decided to go with the happy option.

Nevermore Designs - Monthly Gothic Image Challenge
https://nevermoredesigns.blogspot.com/p/monthly-gothic-challenge.html

I have used a digital paper from Gecko Galz.  The image is also from Gecko Galz and the sentiment is from Annie's Little Footprints.  I inked the edges of the image and sentiment as well as adding Wink of Stella to the bird on the background paper.  I added two vellum embellishments and a flower wreath cloth sticker.

The Legacy of the Bright Mind

 Having been raised being told that my sibling has a "Bright Mind" and made to feel that I'm next to useless, I wasn't sure that I wanted to work with this image.  Then I decided that I needed to get over myself and this is what I came up with:

http://abitmoretimetocraft.blogspot.com/2021/06/a-bit-more-time-to-craft-challenge-142.html

I have used a digital paper from Lozzy.  The image is from Gecko Galz.  When I was looking for some embellishments I found these black glitter swirls which match the swirls in the image.  Not often that happens.   I also added some glitter star stickers.

Howdy!

 I'm gradually getting through the posts that I need to do before the end of the month.  I still have at least three more to do.

Hi

This morning's chill seems to have thawed.  After a frosty start to the day, we now have blue skies and sunshine.  I should be trying to do some things outside but the ground is still quite saturated so it will have to dry out first.

Inspired by a week of rain:

I have used the following Memory Box items to construct this card:

Raindrops Stencil 88577

Let's Squash It - Nature embossing + watercolour
https://letssquashit.blogspot.com/2021/06/challenge-9-nature-and-watercolouring.html

I used an embossing folder and the "smoosh" technique from a tutorial.  I added a leaf embellishment which has been sitting in my stash for quite a long time.  I had two left from the ones that I bought several years ago (hate to think how long ago now).  The image and sentiment are from Beccy's Place.  I used water colour paints from the gold set by Gansai Tambi to colour the embossing folder, image and edges of image and sentiment.  I used three colours (Blue Gold, Red Gold and Champagne Gold) on the embossing folder and image and the Red Gold on the edges.

Thinking of You

 Normally when I think of things with wings, I tend toward butterflies.  This time I decided to mix it up a bit and work with a fairy instead.

Clip, Clip, Hooray! It's Your Birthday!

 I have been trying to complete the progressive challenges by the middle of the month.  Up until this month I have succeeded (even if a couple of months one card was cutting it fine).  This month however this one completely missed the middle of the month.  At least it is well before the end of the month though!

Sending Warm Christmas Wishes

I wasn't sure if birds come under the definition of "critter" but there are several cards in the linky using different birds so I'm hopeful that this one will be okay.

Tuesday Morning Sketches - Sketch
http://tuesdaymorningsketches.blogspot.com/2021/06/tuesday-morning-sketches-611.html

I was sure that this paper was a digital one but I can't find it in my Christmas papers folders so it either isn't a digital paper or I completely missed it in my files.  The image and sentiment are from Beccy's Place.  Colouring is with copic markers.  I also used Distress Ink on the edges of the image, Glossy Accents on the berries on the paper and Wink of Stella on the leaves in the background paper.

I followed the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches (although I did stretch it so that it was a vertical sketch):



Just a Note

 I am part of a New Zealand card swap group.  Each month, we take turns at choosing the challenge for the month.  For June, the challenge chosen was to use nesting dies and also the sentiment as a focal point.  I have heard from my recipient that she has received the card, so I can share it here now.


I used a nesting die set from Craft Concepts.  The largest die in the set was too big for the envelope I was using so I used the largest one that would fit in the envelope.  For the other layers I used every second or third die as they were reasonably close in size.

The paper that I used came in a set of loose sheets of papers and the sentiment is a digital stamp from Desert Diva.

Journey

 June 20th - PoP Midway
We are at the midway point of the Try Something New Challenge at Path of Positivity.  This month the challenge is sponsored by Pattie's Creations and Scribbles Designs.



My something new is a fold that I hadn't tried before - Double Fan Fold Card.  I've tried a lot of different folds but this is one that I was yet to attempt.  It was a lot simpler to construct than I thought it was going to be!

I have used an image from Pattie's Creations called Hot Air Balloon Ride.


I also used digital papers from Lozzy.

I followed a tutorial for a Double Fan Fold Card.

I added some red organza ribbon and also tied a bow with the same ribbon.  I had a few issues tying the bow as I hadn't used the bow maker tool for some time and couldn't remember how to make the bow.  After several failed attempts, I eventually trawled through all the tutorials on the internet until I found one using the same tool that I have. I've now bookmarked that tutorial so I don't have as much trouble finding it next time I need it.

Happy Birthday

I did a cardmaking course some years back and one of the cards that we made was this triple split easel card (not actually sure what it is called).  I haven't made one for a while and couldn't actually remember the measurements.  I had the general idea in my head and figured it out from there!
