Merry Monday #49

UPDATE:  Yay, I received another Honorable Mention for this card!  I’m so excited!

Honourable Mention

Thank you all for following my blog!!! 🙂

 

 

It’s still Winter here so making Christmas cards doesn’t even seem strange!  I predicted an early Spring a few weeks ago, so it better hurry up and get here!!!  Of course I will still make Christmas cards every week;)

Here is the latest sketch challenge from Merry Monday:

MM#49Here is my card, I followed the sketch pretty closely:

Half-fold Card2I don’t know why this image looks blurry:(   Emma must have moved when I took the photo! lol  Honestly, I don’t know why it looks blurry here:(  But if you click on it, it looks fine:)

I used all Stampin’ Up! products except, the little “let it snow” stamp, and of course, the wonderful, pre-colored digital image from Fred She Said called Emma the Snow Angel.  Oh wait, I did use an embossing folder, but I’m not sure where I got it, sorry:(

I used digital plaid paper from My Digital Studio (Stampin’ Up!) called Frostwood Lodge.  I do love digital! 🙂  I love to be able to size things the way I like them to fit any project;)

Fred She Said will be having a Spring Term DT (Design Team) PARADE  Friday Feb.28th.  You’ll be able to pop over to the Fred She Said blog and see cards by all the DT members, new and continuing:)  If you go over there right now, you can see new images that Tracey just put up in the store:)  I imagine at least several members will make cards showcasing those images  on the 28th;)

I’m also going to submit this card to the World of Crafter site for their February General cards challenge, which is Plaid.  You do need to be a member, but it’s free to join!  Lots of fun things going on there!! General cards, Iris Folding, Tea Bag folding, just to name a few.  Lots of friendly people and lots to do! 🙂  Click here to visit their page:)

Thanks for coming by today:)  I hope you might take a few minutes and visit all the links I’ve provided:)  I know, I’m a busy, busy girl! 😉  See you soon! 🙂

Friday Mashup Challenge #71

Some weeks are more stressful than others:(  I actually tend to make more cards when I’m stressed.  I can’t sleep, so  I’m up making cards;)  Last night, very late, it occurred to me that I could combine the World of Crafters sketch challenge and the Friday Mashup Challenge.  I started it last night and finished today:)  Hope you like it:)

Here’s the Friday Mashup info:

So here is the “Mashup” Challenge:
  1. Make a project using ” Black N’ White Only .”
  2. Or Make a project with ” Some Bling “.
  3. Or “Mash it Up” and create a ” Black N’ White Project with some Bling! “

I decided to “Mash it Up”, my card is B&W plus Bling.  Here’s the sketch I used:

I flipped it up and down and came out with this card.  You can click on it to make it larger, hopefully then you can see the subtle embossing:

Wow, what didn’t I use for this card?  First off, I used a digital image from Fred She Said called Christmas Ornaments.  It’s actually a B&W Digi.  Something I didn’t need to color;) lol  Of course, you could color it if you wanted to:)  The white background is embossed with a Spellbinders Impressabilities plate.  First time I’ve used it.  The embossing is very subtle, it’s snowflakes.

Here are two links I found with instructions:  here  and here.

I used Stampin’ Up! papers that I will have in my supply list, as well as other misc. supplies.

Thank you for visiting, I know I’ve had a lot of posts this week!  See you soon:)

World of Crafters sketch challenge August 2012

OMGoodness, I struggled with this sketch too!  I don’t like these little stripes of paper:(  They seem to be very popular right now!

World of Crafters is a craft site that you need a membership for, but it’s free:)  The members there are very friendly and helpful!  There are tons of things to do there besides general cards.  If you’ve ever wanted to try Iris Folding or Tea Bag Folding, this is the place to go! There is a room for ATCs, Scrapbooking and General crafts!  Too much to post here, feel free to go have a look at World of Crafters:) !

Now for that troubling sketch;)

I didn’t add my sentiment yet.  I did NOT color this image myself!  I used a pre colored digital image from Fred She Said. Here’s my card, you can click on it to make it larger:

This FSS set is called COLOURED PANSIES SETS.  There are two different sets, a blue one and a purple one.  Included in the set are  some digital papers and some beautiful pansies in a tea cup!  All my colored papers are from Stampin’ Up!  I’ll have all my colors in the supply list below.

Oooops, almost forgot, here are the un-colored images, in case you like to color your own.  FSS un-colored Pansies.

I’m glad you could stop by today:)  Have a great weekend!

World of Crafters May Sketch Challenge

I am a member over at World of Crafters🙂  They just decided to start a sketch challenge.  It’s a site where you need to be a member, but it’s free:)   Here is the sketch they put up:

Here is my card, featuring an image by Fred She Said, which I did NOT color myself. You can click on it to make it larger:

I used all Stampin’ Up! papers, except the white, which is a special paper I buy at Target.  The white paper is called “photo project paper-matte”.  It prints beautiful images!  I set my printer for flyers or brochures-matte.  I don’t know about your printer, but when I tell mine to print, it will give me an option to change the properties.  That’s where I make my changes, I always reset them when printing a new project.  The options will also reset when you close your program, I use Print Shop.

The printed background paper is also Stampin’ Up! It’s digital paper called Well Worn.  The three dots on the lower right, were cut using a plain old paper hole punch.  I used SU mini glue dots to attach them.

This card has quite a few elements, but it was really simple:)  You could do it, really:)  All you really need is paper and a paper cutter.  You could make all the shapes into squares or rectangles:)

As always, feel free to leave questions if you have them.  I’m happy to share:)  Thanks for stopping by today to have a look:)  I hope you’re having a great weekend!
