Paper Players Challenge #88

I made this little card last night while watching Criminal Minds on my computer. Although I did colour him in a little while ago, I just never got around to putting him on a card. Oops. I am using this card for the Paper Players Challenge 88 using the sketch. I sort of turned the sketch a little to suit the card, but I think that is allowed for the challenge. Here is a close up of the image. It is a stamp from the Greeting Farm called A Happy Day which I picked up from a craft show in Bendigo a few weeks ago.

It has taken quite a while, but I think I have finally figured out how to colour hair. Now I just have to work out the rest of the colouring.

The colours I used are all Stampin Up, as usual, consisting of Crumb Cake, Whisper White, So Saffron and Peach  Parfait. and the Designer Pack called Just Add Cake. There are a few little punches thrown into the mix as well. Here is the sketch I used.

Stampin Royalty Colour Challenge #115

Here is the card I made for the stampin-royalty-challenge-115.
The card was made using the colours listed below in the challenge and I used a stamp set that I have not used in a very long time. Great Grads from Stampin Up. (Actually I don't think I have never made a card using this stamp set). Very sad really.

Extras include the small star punch and small circle punch
Silver brads and silver clip
Label punch

SUO Challenge #40 It's Fun Being Green

Here is the card I made for the SUO Challenge 40. The heading is It's Fun Being Green. Well, I struggled to produce an all Green card as I have already made one for St. Patricks Day, so I mixed in a little Daffodil Delight, after all I have never seen a green sun. And, it just seemed to go together nicely.

St Patricks Day Owls

I know I said no more owls. but I made this card for the Friday Mash Up Challenge 'Who's Feeling Green, and the details do say make a project for St. Patrick's Day or make a project using 2 punches. So I have made a card for the Mash Up, using both. Actually I thought it said Hoots Feeling Green not Who! No, just kidding. I could also enter this as my second card in the Pals Paper Arts challenge as well as I have certainly used the greens required. Also Do You Stack Up - things with wings.

The Open Sea - All together now

Here are all five cards made with the Open Seas Stamp set. Each of these cards have been posted individually, I just wondered what they would look like all together. So here you go. Cool

The Open Seas Card 5

Yeah! Finally I have completed the Fifth card using the stamp set The Open Seas from Stampin Up.
Again I have used the Deconstructed Sketch for help with the layout. Oh Boy, Do I love Sketches.

The PPA Colour Challenge and DYSU Challenge

Well this card was FUN. Lots of Copic practise with the Digital Stamp from Wee Stamps, lots of flower making with the SU Scallop circle punch and lots of inking (Sponging) around the edges of all the card.

Here is this closer image of the coloured image. She is gorgeous. Beautiful stamp. So I made this card for a few challenges including:

Pals Paper Arts Colour Challenge

Do You Stack Up - Things with Wings

Up Up and Away FMS Challenge # 24

This card I made for the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I have used the same stamp set, coloured card, well the same everything really, except the sketch.

Night of Navy Designer paper, Ink and Card
Whisper White
Cherry Cobbler Ink and Card
Craft ink and Card

Up, Up and Away Deconstructed Sketch

Here is the card I made this afternoon using the Deconstructed Sketch # 41. I chose the colours of this card from one that I had pinned on Pinterest earlier in the month and it just seemed fitting to go with this stamp set. I made the clouds using the top of the cup cake punch. Pretty good for clouds if I do say so myself.

Oh WOW. How is this. Here is the original card that I used for the colours of this sketch.

I was wondering why this card came together so nicely, although I do think that Wendy's card is a lot better visually that mine is. I can't believe how close these cards both are, considering I used a sketch.

SU Birthday Challenge

Here is a female birthday card I made last weekend and finished off this morning. I saw a card on Mary Fish (stampin Pretty) blog with the same fold, so I thought I would give it a go as well.

Supplies Used:
Whisper white and Pretty in Pink card
Pretty in Pink Designer Paper
Pretty in Pink Ribbon (Satin) and buttons
Sizzix top note die and small leaves
Small dots embossing folder
Heat Gun and White Embossing Powder
Pretty in Pink and Rose Red Marker

So a brief run down on how I made this: The little secret I have learned here is to emboss on the vellum, then turn the vellum over and colour on the back side of the rose. Add a few little shadows here and there, and hey presto. Done.

BLOG UPDATE: Check this out. Thank You SUO.

Open Seas Number 4 The Paper Players Challenge #84

This is the fourth card I have made using the Open Seas stamp set from Stampin Up. I have used the sketch below as inspiration from the Paper Players.
The supplies used are as follows:
Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Early Espresso card
Matching Designer paper
The Open Seas stamp set
Random white string
Label and oval punch

Oops, I just noticed that DYSU (Do You Stack Up) has a distressed challenge also. So I will enter this card as my submission here as well AND Stampin Royalty has a challenge called (dressing down) oh crap. No buttons or flowers or brads. I think that this card will qualify for that challenge nicely.
