Freshly Made Sketches #54 - A Sketch from Jennifer T.

It has been a while since I have been able to spend much time in my craft studio, so I decided to play a little tonight.  I am planning on being in here most of tomorrow.  I really have missed creating although last weekend was one for getting together with family cousins that I have not seen for quite a while.  Saturday, my sister and I went to a baby shower to see one side of the family cousins and then on Sunday we had a pot luck get together with the other side of the family to see one cousin who was visiting from New York.  Of course we don't even see the ones that live here very often, but that day was filled with lots of talk and laughter visiting with all of the cousins.
So this is my card for FMS #54 which you can access Here
The paper and stamp set are all from PTI in Orange Zest and New Leaf

Make It Monday #84 Reflected Sentiments - 2

This is my second card that I made for MIM #84.  I like how this one turned out much better than the first.  I used Big & Bold Christmas Wishes, sentiment set and Bells & Boughs stamp set in Pure Poppy, and threw in some Aqua Mist to match the Candy Cane Prints patterned paper.  The green was Memento's Bamboo Leaves. 

Make It Monday #84: Reflected Sentiments

This is my first attempt at this weeks MIM, reflected sentiments using All About You stamp set, in Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores and Harvest Gold.   I almost did not post cause I don't think it turned out that well.

Make It Monday #83: Card Aisle Inspiration

We were to use a store bought card for inspiration to design our own on this week's MIM.  The second card was my inpiration.  I liked all the different sized boxes that were used on this card. I actually found it in my cards that I save.  It is hard for me to throw out cards.   I used Text Boxed, Butterfly Dreams, Mega and Gracious Vases, Asian Fusion, Double Ended Banners, and the Heart dies on my card.

CFC69: Create a CAS project using embossing.

I made this card for CAS-ual Fridays challenge using embossing.  I used the Spellbinders oval and embossed the edge which is kind of hard to see.  The flower is from PTI's Natural Beauties stamp set and I heat embossed it with clear emboss and then used a sponge with some Royal Velvet residue on it and then Hibiscus Burst and it gave me this pretty color.  The green is Simply Chartreuse.
