I have a sick little boy home with me this week and he always wants me to craft while he plays video games or watches TV. It’s a good excuse for me to get some projects done, I need to make some Mother’s Day cards for the upcoming craft fair. 🙂
I can’t believe it’s April already! Where has the time gone? I’m not complaining though, good-bye Winter, hello Spring!
Here is my entry for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.
Here is the sketch:
All of the patterned paper is from the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack. I cut the Old Olive background to 4″ x 5 1/4″. The flowers paper is a 2 3/4″ square with a 1/16″ mat of Basic Black. The Calypso Coral is 1 3/4″ x 3″ with a 1/16″ Basic Black mat. The medium butterflies thinlet and the small butterfly framelit were cut from Very Vanilla. The small butterfly was from Butterfly Basics and stamped with Calypso coral ink before die-cutting. The banner is a 3/4″ x 4″ finished size piece of Basic Black that I punched with the Banner Triple Punch.
I’m playing along with the Mojo Monday blog challenge again.
Here is my card:
It took me a while to decide which papers to combine with this sketch, my craft table is a mess. My first version just didn’t have enough contrast for me so I tried again. For the flower, I stamped off the base flower once before stamping on the piece of Whisper White.
I’m playing along with the Mojo Monday sketch challenge today.
Here’s my take on it:
and here’s the sketch:
I used the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack for the three patterned papers on the card. The Old Olive one is cut at 4″ x 4″, the flowers at 2″ x 2″ and the Calypso Coral pattern is cut at 3 1/2″ x 3/4″. I layered each piece with Basic Black using a 1/16″ border and adhered the panel to a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Very Vanilla. The sentiment comes from Suite Sayings and I used the 1 3/4″ circle punch for both of the circle. I finished it off with the Bitty Butterfly punch and the Rhinestones Basic Jewels.
I’m not quite late with posting for this challenge, I still have a couple of hours left still. The Happy Birthday stamp is from the May 2014 Paper Pumpkin. I couldn’t find my Endless Birthdays stamp set at the time.
