Silhouette, AHSC #18

This card was inspired by the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge # 18.  Here is the sketch:

This card was simple to create and (I think) it carries a sweet message:). I started with Stampin up while cardstock and cut it larger than needed.  I thought when I seen other cards completed in this fashion a Breyer had done the work (plus I couldn't figure out where my giant mess my daubers were). So in the end I inked up my Speedball Brayer with CTMH ink, I started with the blue and worked down to the green grass.  On the grass I rolled the Brayer back and forth to get the hilly effect.  The clouds were accomplished using inkadinkadoo masking paper.

Next I inked up CTMY Childhood Portrait images (tree and children) with black ink and placed on the cardstock.  My next adventure was to size the card and trim it down.  I used CTMH seam binding ribbon.  i MUST say that it is one of the nicest ribbons i have ever used!  love it.  it is soft and silky and ties in a sweet bow like a dream!  it is worth the money and i wish i had more of the stuff.I love the patterned paper in this line.  It is from Simple Stories. I always finish the inside of my cards and the inside of this is strips of patterned paper laying helter skelter.  

Hope you enjoyed another card inspiration from AHSC!  I hope you join us this week and whip up an entry!  We love to see any project that this sketch has inspired you to do:)


Pop by Sometime, AHSC #17

This card was inspired by Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (AHSC).

I love the honeycomb shapes!  It is just a happy way to be!  I used Whimsie Doodles images and sentiment.  Aren't they cute?  I think the sentiment is sweet.  How whimsical to put that sentiment  with a girl holding popcorn! The colouring was all done with copics and recently I seen a neat way to post pictures of the markers used for a project...I think I will try it for the next one.  It's great to learn new ways to show product and projects:)

The paper line used for this project is simple stories.  I love the colors and combination of patterns.  I hope you enjoy.  Have a scrap happy day!

Copper Evergreen

This little dandy just took a few minutes and the effects are worth while!  The cardstock is all Stampin up.  The gold cord I got at a thrift store and the stamp is a Stampin up stamp (from 2006). The tree was completed by stamping with versa mark and then taking the perfect pearls copper dust and their feather light brush and dusting over the top.  When the versa mark dries it is like a glue for the copper powder and it sticks in place.  I chose no sentiment on the inside or outside of the card because it could be used as a notecard close to or after the holidays.  Hope you have had a scrap happy day.  

Cartwheel Posey, AHSC #16

This little cutie came from a Annabelle Stamps. I used My Minds Eye patterned paper with colorbok cardstock.  My image is coloured with copics and I paper pieced her shirt and pants.  The sentiment comes from stampin up and it is embossed and i used a large oval punch from them too.  I used doodlebug twine and the centre of the flower has some red stickles ( I think it is razzleberry). I really must pay closer attention to these wonderful products.  I have to be honest and say when I am crafting I am not thinking about who made what....

This card was designed for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I am proud to say I am part of their design team and am loving the opportunity!  Hop on over to see us at http://atlanticheartschallenge.blogspot.ca/.  We will be happy to see your creations!
