Good morning all 🙂 We are already past the half way point of November…and into another brand new ATG challenge at Creative Fingers! Our sponsor this time is one of my favorites for adorable animal images….Wink Wink Ink
I was given the image Night Owl, to use on my project. An owl and coffee…..how much more ME can you get 😉 I colored him up with my Prismacolor pencils, then fussy cut him out. I had purchased coffee DP paper on a recent girls weekend I had with a friend, and this card was perfect to use it on 🙂 The coffee cup background, the flower background that I die cut with a stitched die, and the sparkly border piece were all from different sheets of the same set 🙂 I used this sketch, from Feeling Sketchy as inspiration for the layout.
The sentiment was stamped with a LDRS stamp, then die cut out. I die cut a flourish, to mimic a bit more steam, and the card was done 🙂 I hope that you can join us with any of your creations at the challenge, we’d love to see your work!!
Hello! It’s time for another ATG challenge over at Creative Fingers 🙂 This time, we have 2 fabulous sponsors,
I was given the gorgeous image Holly Christmas from Elvenstar Art to use on my project. I first merged her into a holly frame clipart that I had in my files, then colored everything with my SN and Copic markers. I used this sketch:
from Tuesday Morning Sketches as my inspiration for the layout. I kept it very simple color wise, using my favorite color combo 🙂 I added an embossed piece for the top element, using a wonderful magazine freebie that I got a few years ago. I hope you can join us by sharing a project over at our challenge 🙂
As You Like It Challenge – Christmas or Non-Christmas….Christmas!! Why? Love the colors and the festive feel of Christmas cards. Also, these are the cards that I seem to give out most, so it’s fun to keep making them throughout the year :_
Hi there!! Hope that you are enjoying the fall weather, and are getting all your Halloween preparations done!! It has been an absolutely gorgeous October here in Saskatchewan, Canada, with no snow yet. Although I love the look of snow, I cannot stand how stupid drivers get when it comes!! It’s as if they’ve never seen it before, and every time you get behind the wheel, you take your life into your hands 🙁 Anyway…lol…it’s time for a brand new ATG challenge over at Creative Fingers! We have two sponsors this time:
We would love to see your creations….remember, it’s ATG!!
I have been given Maria Medel’s Cute Frankie to use for my card. Love the expression on this goof’s face 🙂 I colored him up with my SN and Copic markers, then fussy cut him out. I used 2 different prints from a pad of DP for the background, then separated the 2 pieces with a strip of dark grey CS. I added some screw head brads to “join” everything together. The sentiment was printed on my computer, with the letters being emphasized with just a touch of silver colored pencil.
For my card, I used the Coffee Word Art image. After printing it out on some tan CS, I cut it out, then adhered it to a coffee bean print DP. The other side of the coffee bean print was a coffee word print, so I used that as my background. Everything was matted with black CS, and I added a tag with a cute coffee sentiment stamped on it (can’t remember the maker of this particular set). A few adhesive embellishments in the corners provided a bit of balance to the card design.
Good morning 🙂 It’s the first day of fall here, and also the first day of a new ATG challenge at Creative Fingers. We have the fabulous Lemon Shortbread as a sponsor this time 🙂
There are so many adorable images in the shop, but I decided to go seasonal, and use an image that I’d won a while back, called Hedgehog Leaves. I colored this cutie up with my SN and Copic markers. I forgot how much fun fall leaves are to color!! After cutting the image out, I began assembling the card, following this sketch, from Creative Sketchy Girls:
What a fabulous sketch, with so many possibilities!! My leaf print background paper is a scrap that I’ve had for a very long time, and was just the right size for this card, I dug in the scrap bin for a dark brown piece, and inked the edges with some Walnut Stain Distress Ink. A small piece of burlap finished off the layers. I cut the “thanks” with an unbranded die, from another scrap of brown paper. A few leaf brads were added, just because they looked good, and were feeling neglected lol.
I’d also like to enter this into the following challenges:
