Masculine Birthday ~ Freshly Made Sketch #198

So I missed last weeks Freshly Made Sketch so I was determined to make it work out this week.  I needed to create a birthday card for a friend of ours birthday so this was the perfect opportunity.  Here is my take on the Freshly Made Sketch #198.

Masculine Birthday Card ~ FMS198 ~ catscrapbookingHere is what the inside looks like:

Masculine Birthday Card inside ~ FMS198 ~ catscrapbooking.comI know our friend likes the classic cars so I thought using Maximum Power D1564 would be perfect for this card. I used Outdoor Denim, Slate and White Daisy for the colors.  I used Outdoor Denim Pigment ink.  The happy birthday is from Joyful Birthdays B1419.  I did change the orientation of the sketch but it is still based off this design.

FMS198Now that I have successfully gotten my first sketch linked in time 🙂 I hope to be able to continue to play along.

Pawesome ~ Freshly Made Sketch #197

I have wanted for a long time to participate in the Freshly Made Sketch challenges, but always seemed to be behind on my crafting or just missed the cut off.  Well it has happened again …. I finished this card last night and realized the challenge ended Monday. Oh well….. I still like my card so I am going to share it with you anyway.

Pawesome ~ Boken technique ~ Puppy ~ FMS197 ~

Here is the sketch:

FMS+Final+197-001I am loving the purple, blue and green combination (as you can tell from my post from yesterday).  I used Indian Corn Blue, Pear and Thistle inks to create the background.  I used circles and pawprint stencil from Simon Says Stamp.  I have been wanting to use this Pawesome set from Simon Says Stamp which includes the dies, stencil and stamp set.  I used my water color pencils to color the puppy.   I added a little bling with the purple gems.

Color Dare #129 ~ Heartstrings

Welcome to another week with Color My Heart Color Challenge!!  This week for Color Dare we are featuring the colors of Heartstrings paper pack which are ~ Cranberry, Crystal Blue, Hollyhock, lagoon, Whisper and White Daisy.

Color Dare #129 BadgeI have to admit that I have not been a big Valentine person and never really celebrated it too much as an adult.  However between this paper pack and having a child I have been having fun with Valentines creations. I know this paper pack can be used for more than just Valentines but since we are one day away from Valentines Day, I figured I would design a card which would work for Valentines or anytime you just wanted to say “Love You”.

Color Dare #129~ Heartstrings ~

For this card I used the Heartstrings paper pack with Lagoon, Whisper and White Daisy cardstock.  I used the Hostess Exclusive stamp set Happy Hexagons C1596 with Lagoon and Hollyhock ink.  I used the hearts embossing folder and using a sanding block I exposed the white core of the cardstock.  I also added a few Stuck on you Puffies and some white shimmer trim.

Please join us this week for Color My Heart with this weeks Color Dare.  Just create a project (card, layout or any craft project) using this weeks colors and then link them HERE.

Happy Crafting!
