Less is More #443 - Sketch

 Hello and happy Saturday! It's time for a new challenge over at Less is More and we have a fun sketch for you.



I went quite literal with the sketch. I kept the shapes and layout.


I've used this set by Stampin' Up! called 'Pampered Pets' a few times, unfortunately. I mean, I love the set but it's been used mainly for friends who have lost their fur babies :( 
I coloured this puppy using polychromo pencils and did a 'rough' job to add a bit of texture.

I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges -
Colour Crazy Challenge (Anything Goes), Creative Moments (Anything Goes), A Place to Start (Anything Goes), Make My Monday (Sympathy), Crafty Animals (Anything Goes), Crafty Hazelnut's Challenge (Anything Goes with Patterned Paper)

Thank you for popping by and I hope to see you playing along with our sketch challenge :)

Penny Black Midway Reminder

 Hello! It's our halfway reminder of the current challenge over at the Penny Black Saturday Blog.

Our theme is Anything Goes with the option of Clean and Simple.

For this card I stamped the image from the "Micey Day" set and coloured it with polychromo pencils. I used a stitched tag die and a rectangle die for interest and even added some baker's twine as an embellishment to the tag. I feel I was still able to keep my card within our optional theme of clean and simple.

The prize for this challenge is provided by our generous sponsor:

Prize - $20 voucher!
I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges -
Cute Card Thursday (Embellish), Watercooler Wednesdays (Feminine), Double D Challenges (June = Rose), Try it on Tuesday (Make it Feminine), AAA Birthday (Happy Birthday), Let's Craft and Create (AG + no patterned paper), Creative Knockouts (Flower Power)

    
Thanks for popping in today and I hope to see you over at the PBSC blog.

Less is More # 442 - Sea Creatures

 Hi and Happy Saturday. It's time for a new challenge over at Less is More. We have a fun theme for you to play along with over the next 2 weeks.


Card #1
I created a background using a few different papers. I adhered them onto a piece of card then die cut it down using a stitched rectangle die. This cute whale is from a set by CTMH called Animal Greetings: Operation Smile. The sentiment is from a HLS set.

Card #2
I used distress ink to create my water panels then die cut them using Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders. I stamped, coloured, and die cut the octopus and present and popped them 'into' the water. The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Sentiments set. This card is for my Grandson.

Card #1 - Krafty Chicks (Anything Goes), Simon Says Stamp (Anything Goes), Watercooler Wednesdays (All Occasions), Dragonfly Dream (Feature a Creature)

Thanks Eclipse

 Hello! A quick post from me to share a card that I made at the request of my son. He has been at a new job for a few months now and he wanted a thank you card for his boss. 


I started by stamping my flowers (Merci Beaucoup by Clearly Besotted) and coloured them with polychromo pencils. 
I used a rather large thanks die and cut used it on my coloured panel first. I then cut it again about 4 times using plain card. I adhered the panel to my card base and then started filling in the die cut gaps with glue and the die cut words, layering them up as I went. I finished with the die cut that had the coloured portions on it.

I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges -
Crafter's Cafe (Flowers), Let's Craft and Creation (Anything Goes + Add Flowers), Lost Coast Designs (Sentimentally Yours), Watercooler Wednesdays (All Occasions), A Place to Start (Make it Elegant), Double Trouble (Flowers)
