Working Class Bot

Here is another card I have made using the sketch challenge from Inkspirations. It is the same as the Mono Clyde card sketch. I will enter this one in the Inkspiration Challenge, although I am not sure how many cards you are allowed to enter. The colours consist of Old Olive, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Real Red. The card is a 5 x 5 card size made from Whisper White. This little image came from tiddlyinks. I have been looking at this little fellow for quite some time now, and finally decided that I would add him to my collection of digital stamps.

Mono Clyde

Here is the card I have made for the Bugaboo Challenge this week. It is making a card using only one colour. (Monochromatic). I usually don't make green cards, but it seemed to really suit this digital stamp. I love these challenges. The sketch for this card came from the Inkspirations Sketch Challenge for this week. I am doing two challenges in one here.

Another Bunny

This little fellow is from Dustin. I used my copic markers for the colouring and stampin up papers for the card and embellishments.

More Bently

I liked the other Bently card so much, I just had to make another one with the scraps I had left over. All paper is from Stampin up and the image of Bently is from the talented bugaboo stamps.

Check this out

I opened my emails this morning and look what I found. Thank you so much Bugaboo and Bently of course. I came first in the Bugaboo Challenge. Awesome. Time to go shopping for some more Digital Images.

Bugaboo Bently

This little fellow here is called Bently. I have used the same colour scheme as the post below, and I am going to enter him into the Bugaboo Challenge this week. The theme is Baby or Child. There is a link to Bugaboo on the left hand side of my blog posted under blogs if you are new to my site and want to play along. I really like the way this card turned out and is going to be one of my favorites for sure.

Monday's Class Preview

Here is one of the cards we will be making on Monday for class. I thought I would give you a little preview to see what we get up to. Easter is just around the corner, so it was only fitting that I combine a digi stamp with a Stampin Up stamp to create this cute little card. The colours, well maybe they are not really Easter related, but I'm not a very conventional person when it comes to specific colours for specific occasions. The second card we will be making is from the Creative Combination, that is definitely different. I will post this one after class finishes.

Second card for Sneak Peak

This is the second card I have made using the above colour combination. You know, using the colour coach is really not quite as simple as it looks. It actually makes you think about the card and colour placement before you try and create the card. Not sure whether or not that makes any sense at all, but I know what I am trying to say. PS I created a watermark for my cards, tell me what you think about it. 

Sneak Peak

Here is a little sneak peak at a new stamp that is released on 1st April 2011. I love this stamp. The colours for this card came from the Colour Coach, I'm sure you all know by now that i love this tool as well. I have used the sketch from inkspirations sketch challenge. Not sure whether you noticed, but it's the same layout as the turtle card.

Colour Coach - More Mustard

Well I guess there is not a real lot I can say about this post, other that, love the colours. The digital stamp is from bugaboo, everything else is from Stampin Up. Enjoy. Well, here I am saying that there is not much to write about this little card. I forgot to mention that I have used the sketch from Inkspirations as it was a sketch challenge. Sorry about that. Must have been a seniors moment.

Colour Coach - More Mustard

Blog holiday

Okay, so I can't send my blog on a holiday, but I have been making a few minor adjustments as you can see. Each time I teach myself how to add another element, you will notice my blog changing. Hopefully for the better.

Back to Mojo 180

Here is the latest sketch from Mojo Monday. Actually I think there will be another one tomorrow. Time difference is really annoying. lol I am going to post my card when I am finished. Firstly I have to work out whether my large format printer will print on water colour paper, and whether the ink is actually waterproof. I am hoping that the salesman was not just being a salesman....... It would be totally awesome if works.
