Feline Creative Sketch #5 (FCsketch005)


Hi everyone!  Today I've another card in the new feline card set I'm making for the local humane society.  The little fish bones and cat are from the NINE LIVES clear stamp set by Paper Smooches.


I water colored a piece of watercolor paper then die cut a circle towards the top.  I used the vellum with black words as a back drop.  Below is the sketch I made of this card design.

Family


Hi everyone!  This layout was inspired by the Scrapbook Design & Storytelling class I'm taking online at Craftsy.  It helped me use up some of the scraps of patterned paper I've laying around.  I love this photo of my husband's family.  My husband is the handsome man second from the right side of the photo, he is wearing black pants.

Feline Creative Sketch #4 (FCsketch004)


Hi everyone!  This is the first in a set of feline cards I'm making for the local humane society.  The black cat is from the Nine Lives clear stamp set by Paper Smooches.  The patterned paper is from Close To My Heart.

The white background with black words originated from a sheet of vellum with black words.  Using a standard copy machine I copied the vellum onto white cardstock.  This way I get more miles out of the one sheet of vellum.


This is the sketch I made from the card design.


I'm entering this card in the Paper Smooches SPARKS anything goes challenge.

Food & Drinks


Hi everyone! I'm back with another layout I created of my in-laws 50th anniversary open house. I started with a piece of 8x8 blue cardstock. At the top of the layout I added a piece of red patterned paper layered with a half piece of scalloped edge white cardstock. I used the white cardstock as a base for my title. Next I added two 3x4 photos. 

To give the edges of the photos of finished look I added a strip of blue patterned paper with scalloped edges and at the bottom a premade border piece with strips of patterned paper cut into banners at the bottom. I added a piece of white lace over the banner border. To finish the layout I added a white heart, red flower and gold brad.

Feline Creative Sketch #3 (FCsketch003)


Hi everyone! This is the last card in my puppy dog set I made for the local humane society. The card base is light blue layered with strips of paw print patterned paper distressed around the edges with vintage photo distress ink. At the bottom of the card I added a piece of dark brown cardstock finished on one side using the scallop edge border punch.


On this card I used the original image colored in using copic markers. I then scanned the image and re-printed multiples of the image which were used on the other cards in the set. I wrapped white crochet thread around the image before adhering it to the card base. I finished the card by adding a paw print stamped in vintage photo distress ink and fussy cut using my scissors and bone die cut from blue cardstock.


And here is the sketch I made of the card design.

Cake


Hi everyone! This is a clean and simple layout but looks yummy none the less! I started with an 8x8 piece of light blue cardstock and layered it with a 7x7 piece of yellow patterned paper. After adhering the photos I added some strips of red cardstock and stitched along the edge. The title was die cut from shimmery gold cardstock I used for the invitations. To finish the layout I added a white heart, red flower, gold brad and tiny white dove.

Cute Puppy, Embossing and Distressing


Hi everyone!  This is a clean and simple card I created for the local humane society.  The card base is dark brown cardstock. On it I layered blue cardstock embossed using the Darcie Paw Prints embossing folder then sanded it down to show the white core of the cardstock.  I used vintage photo distress ink on the edges.  I wrapped white crochet thread around the cardstock before adhering it to the card base.


The shadow layer is a light brown cardstock. I punched the corners using a corner punch then distressed the edges. Between the shadow layer and the image I added a strip of dark brown cardstock and using a pair of scissors cut banners at both ends. The image was die cut using one of the labels dies and the edges are distressed with vintage photo distress ink.

Love


Hi everyone! This layout shows the photo boards my sister-in-law created for my in-laws 50th anniversary open house. Not only do the photos show the love they shared but the creation of the photo boards showcases the love the kids feel for their parents.

To create the layout I started with an 8x8 piece of blue cardstock. I added a 1 1/2 strip of yellow patterned paper and added two 3x4 photos overlapping the yellow patterned paper. Below that I added a piece of red patterned paper and several banner strips of coordinating patterned paper. To finish the layout I added a white paper heart, red flower, gold brad and some white enamel dots.

Feline Creative Sketch #2 (FCsketch002)


Hi everyone!  I'm so thankful it's a long holiday weekend.  We are in the process of painting all the walls upstairs inside our house.  Everything is moved around and at present our bedroom is in the living room.  It's like waking up on the wrong side of the house, LOL!


Today I'm sharing another cute card I made for the local humane society.  I loved the design so much I made a sketch of it to use again later on. The card base is dark brown cardstock layered with a thinner light blue cardstock I embossed with the paw prints embossing folder by Darcie.  The strips are dark brown cardstock cut 3/4 inch wide. 


Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
