BYSH Cardmakers Sketch #27 Challenge


I can't believe it is October already! But it is, and that means it's time for a new sketch challenge over at BYSH Cardmakers. Here is a peek at the new sketch.

This was a fun sketch to create with. So, this is my first inspiration project for you.

My pattern papers are from the Echo Park Christmas Cheer 6" X 6" paper pad. My images are some chipboard stickers from the same collection along with my sentiment tag. The little Christmas Tree is a sticky brad also from the Christmas Cheer collection.

I hope you will head over to the BYSH Cardmakers blog and check out the inspiration from the other design team members. Then head over to our Facebook Group and share a project using Sketch #27.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see your projects soon. Now that it is October it's time to get serious about your holiday cards.

Morgan's Art World Challenge #10


It's time for a new challenge over at Morgan's Art World. I used this Rooster from the Garden 4 images. My card base is 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" white cardstock.  I cut a piece of pattern paper to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" and adhered it to my card base. I also cut a piece of pattern paper 1 1/2" X 5 1/4". My pattern paper is from a Simple Stories Garden Farmhouse 12" X 12" paper collection.  I adhered my rooster using some foam adhesive. My sentiment is a sentiment strip that I cut from the pattern paper collection. To finish the card, I added some black gems around the sentiment and the rooster.

BYSH CardMakers Sketch #26

 One more project for the BYSH Cardmakers Challenge using Sketch #26. The pattern paper is from my stash. The gifts are cut from some scraps of cardstock and pattern paper. I found the gifts in Cricut Design Space and cut them with my Cricut Maker 3. My sentiments are white heat embossed on some dark teal cardstock. To finish my card I added some teal-colored gems from Honeybee Stamps.

Now I hope you will head over to the BYSH Cardmakers blog to check out more inspiration from our design team. We hope you will play along with us. See you there.

 Today I have a mini slimline card featuring the new Boo die from the Halloween and Thanksgiving release over at Kat Scrappiness. My pattern paper is from the Creepy and Kooky 6" x 6" paper pad. The paper pad is double sided and 80lb cardstock. It's a really nice paper.

For my card I started with some heavyweight white cardstock that I cut and folded to make my card base. I die cut my pattern paper using the Mini Slimline Embossed Edge Dies.  I used the largest die for the black and orange paper and the third die for my star paper.

I added the pattern papers with some liquid adhesive. I die cut my Boo from black cardstock and the shadow from white cardstock. I love that the shadow die is included. I popped up the sentiment using some foam tape. I die cut a couple of ghosts and a spider using dies in my stash. I thought it would be cute to have the spider hanging from the O in the sentiment, so I took a black marker and drew a line from the O to the spider. Finally, I finished my card using some Boo-Who? sequins from Kat Scrappiness.

I hope you will pop over Kat Scrappiness and check out all the products in the new release. Thanks for stopping by.

BYSH Cardmakers Sketch # 26


Here is another one of the projects I made using Sketch #26.  This one is more of a winter themed card. My pattern paper is from an older Bo Bunny 6" X 6" paper pad.

My image was created using a die from Paper Rose. I die cut it out of white cardstock and ink blended on it using some Distress Oxide inks. I used Ice Spruce for the trees, Salvaged Patina for the snow, Chipped Saphire and Black Soot for the night sky. I added splatters to the sky using some plain water, and Confetti White Perfect Pearls.

I then die cut another solid circle from some white cardstock so I could paper piece my scene back together. After I had my scene adhered to the solid circle, I die cut a small circle from more of the white cardstock. I took a light gray copic marker and added some dots to my moon, then adhered it to the sky. Finally, I took a small die from my stash to cut my deer out of black cardstock and added him to my scene. I white heat embossed my sentiment onto some black cardstock. I cut it into a strip and added it to my card.

Now I hope you will hop over to the BYSH Cardmakers blog to see more inspiration from the design team. We would love for you to play along with us. Hope to see you there.

World Wide Open Design Team September Challenge.

  Today starts our new challenge over at World Wide Open Design Team Challenge. The theme is "Always Anything Goes."  Our sponsor is "Julie Spiri". I chose to use the Sweet Love for my project.

My card is a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card made with heavy white cardstock. I added some pattern paper from my stash cut to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". I used an arch die to cut out my image and adhered to my card base with some foam tape. I added a pink heart above the hearts that are part of the image. I stamped my sentiment under the image with black ink.

Now it is your turn. I hope you will come play along with us.

Enter our current challenge.
