Have a Sunny Day!

A very belated Happy New Year to you all!

If you are still here, thanks for sticking with me! I have been in a major crafty funk and decided to take an extended blogging break. I’m not sure how often I will post but since I did recently make a card, I thought I would share it.

One of my card groups does a brand swap each month. It’s one of my favorites to participate in! This month the chosen company is Taylored Expressions, a long time favorite.

 

Taylored Expressions Wildflower Bouquet

 

I used copics to color in this Wildflower Bouquet image and the paper is from Authentique. I kept the layout pretty simple to focus on the beautiful flower arrangement.

 

Have a great night!

Autumn Wreath

Hi again!

 

Here is another card I made yesterday. This one is a fall card using Taylored Expressions Autumn Wreath stamp set and Sketch #466 from Mojo Monday.

I stamped the wreath and squirrel on Taylored Expressions Choice Buttercream cardstock and colored them with Prismacolor pencils.  I then blended the images with Gamsol and fussy cut them.  All the cardstock and patterned papers (Crate Paper Farmhouse) are from an old TE Key Ingredients kit (October 2011!). Here’s to using older stash!

 

Here is the sketch~

Batty and Catty

 

Hi!

 

Tonight I have a Halloween card to share using Kraftin Kimmie’s Batty and Catty!  I used their September sketch and the new Clean & Simple Challenge.

 

2016 Card 89 - KKS Batty and Catty

 

The papers are from Photoplay’s Bootiful collection.  Lots of fun Halloween prints in this one!

 

I also decorated the inside! I added the sentiment that came with the image and a cat from Taylored Expressions’ Gothic Window Accessories.  The bats on the front are from the same set.

Just Because for Share Joy Challenge

Hello!

 

I made this card on Friday and mailed it out to a friend to say hello today.  I used the sketch and tic tac toe challenge at the Share Joy Challenge.

 

I used one of my favorite summer sets from Taylored Expressions, A Day in Paradise, for the main image and sentiment. The splatters were created using a stamp from SU Gorgeous Grunge and Marina Mist ink stamped off once.

 

I chose the first line for the tic tac toe portion of the challenge – wood veneer, stitching and ink splatter.
