Wohoo, I am back! Sketch Challenge!


Wohoo!!  I am finally settled into my new craft room, all set and have been crafting so thought I would start back with sketches.  I had sooooo much fun doing this card and with my passion for camping and fishing, this was perfect for me to start with.  I have entered my Card in the Freshly Made Sketches 253 Challenge.  Here is the sketch and below it is my take on the sketch and creation.  OMG I had soooooo much fun!  Eeeeeee




I coloured the image with copic markers, Spica clear pen and Gelly Roll Medium White.  I used the Balloon Talk  stamp set from Close to My Heart for the Senti; which I stamped with tuxedo black Momento ink.  I used craft card stock for the base and built my card using Beach Bliss 8x8 paper pad from Lili of The Valley, Raspberry Road Design paper by Susan Darter.  The Blue Cloth flower is from KinderstampO and the other flower is from Daisy Doodles.  I added the burlap ribbon and paper ribbon from my stash.  The copic marker colours I used are as follows:

FYR1, YR02, YR07, YR27, RO1, R22, R24, W0, W4, W6, W8, BG07, BG57, BG93, BG96, BG99, FBG2, N4, N6, N8, T3, T7, E31 and E000.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  Welcome to 2016 and we have a whole year of crafting ahead of us, giggle!  Part of how I see things anyway, lol.

This month's will be an easy one because we are focusing on Anything Winter!  And if your area is anything like mine, it is a winter wonderland right now.  Sooo beautiful but very cold right now, -24 C.  Burr, anyway here is my creation.



The piece from SRTC is the snowflake and the center of my card.  I added Gold, Inka Gold by Viva to the snowflake and on the clock.  The clock was cut out of a silver sheet from Quick Kutz (old stock I had on hand), which I embossed with a clock folder.  The letters are also from Quick Kutz.  The bow was cut with a Tattered Lace Die and the Snowflake die and I really can not remember where it is from.  I added gems from Close To My Heart.  The image is Destiny Snow Faery from Faery Ink.  I coloured the image with the following copic markers.  W8,W6, W4,W2, W1, W0, N8, N4, N2, R59, R34, R29, R22, R21, BG57, BG49, BG45, B06, B02 R12, RV11, RV13, E000, E00 and E01.  I added Spica-Sky Blue and Baby Blue to the wings.  I added Icicle Stickles by Ranger to the letters for some pop and sparkle!

Last Post of the Year!

That sounds so strange, last post of the year!  Giggle, well not last post ever just on SRTC in 2015.  I will be back in January, on with my card!   Christmas Words is the challenge at SRTC and I chose Jingle All The Way from the SRTC shop!


I used white card stock from Close To My Heart and designer paper from my stash.  I embossed the chipboard with Pearl embossing powder from Close To My Heart and added white flocking to 2 of the snowflakes.  I used white liquid applique on the smallest snowflake, brown for the sleigh and blue, white, green liquid applique for the bell.  I added some gems, pom poms, and bling from my stash.  I used Memory box dies to cut out the pine branches and the dangly boarder.  There you have it.  Merry Christmas.

Christmas Words Challenge!

Wow how time flies, here we are in December already and Christmas is fast approaching!  I chose to do a card using Christmas words as my Focus, Merry Christmas!  I hope you join in on the fun and enter a project to the SRTC Challenge!  Most importantly, have fun!!!!


The Merry Christmas is from Southern Ridge Trading Company and the Snowflakes as well!  I coloured the chipboard with copic markers, G17, G07, Y13, YR23, B18, R89 and E18.  I added stickles, Ruby Slippers, Pewter, Buttercup, Rouge, Diamond and Dark Chocolate and liquid applique for the fluff on the stocking and on the loops around the sentiment.    The paper is Annabelle's Christmas from Wild Rose Studio and the white cardstock is from Close to My Heart.  I used Memory Box Dies for the pine branches and the Corner Flourish Dies are from, I think, either Heartfelt Creations or Memory Box.  I distressed the paper edges with Forest Moss Tim Holtz Distress Ink from Ranger.

Christmas Card Time!

It is that time of year and I have done my first Christmas Card!  Whoot Whoot!  I was at a fundraiser crop and one of the challenges was to to make a card with what we had on hand and all we were given was the card stock strip and a piece of designer paper.  This is what I came up with.  I used the Seasons Greetings sentiment and the snowflakes chipboard from SRTC and added some colour.  The black bazzil card stock was what my chipboard was secured to when I got it., he, he!


I used Dylusions Post Office Red paint by Dian Reaverly by Ranger for the sentiment, coloured the Lily of The Valley image with copic markers and added snowflakes with a white chalk marker.  I used Yellow Gold Viva Decor Inka Gold  for the snowflakes and added bling I had in my bag.  I added white liquid applique on the hat to make it look fuzzy and pop.


I just happened to have some wire and beads in my bag so thought, why not!

Voila!  My card.

Now I hope that inspired you to come play along at the SRTC Challenge, this month the theme is Christmas and if you do a non traditional project you can get an extra chance to win.  If you have SRTC products that is awesome but you do not need to use SRTC products!  If you would like to play along click here to enter your project here
