Sketch Saturday – Week #329

This card inspiration was from a sketch at Sketch Saturday. I used a stamp from Dilly Beans Stamps called “Mummy’s Pumpkin”. I coloured him with Copic markers, added some die cut bats by Memory Box and a few black gems, along with paper from my stash.

Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp Challenge 249 – Another SKETCH!

My card was inspired by a sketch at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamp Challenge 249 – Another SKETCH!  I used Halloween Mummy – Trick or Treat by Bugaboo. I coloured him (isn’t he adorable!) with Copic markers. I added a doily die cut from MFT, and bats from Memory box. The paper is from my stash.

The Kraftyhands Challenge – September Challenge – Autumn Colours

My card design was inspired by the sketch from last month’s challenge at The Kraftyhands August Challenge  but I did it with fall in mind for The Kraftyhands Challenge – September Challenge – Autumn Colours. I made my card on the “rustic” side so it could be used for both a guy or gal. I used the Autumn Jar stamp by Bugaboo and coloured it with Copics. The papers are from my stash. I also entered this card into Frosted Designs – Fall

Push is on for Fall!

I need to make up 140 Fall/Thanksgiving/Halloween card in the next week for the residents at the Belmont Nursing home, so the push is on. This past weekend I coloured more than 70 stamped images, and I used a number of different card “sketch” challenges to get inspiration to complete my cards.

For my first card, I used a sketch from Sketchy Colours #227. I used a digi stamp called Pumpkin Ghost by Bugaboo. I coloured him with Copic markers and used patterned paper from my stash.

I also entered this card into Aud Sentiments Challenge 16 – Halloween

The Glory of Christmas – Challenge 43 Fireplace or Fire

 

Sidebarglorykleiner

The new challenge at The Glory for Christmas asks you to use fire or a fireplace. I checked my stash and didn’t have any appropriate stamps. I went on the search and found one at Tiddly Inks – Fireplace. (There is also have an optional “joy” mantle piece). I printed it twice so I could stack the stockings. I coloured it with Copics, added a little red stickles, let it dry, then fussy cut it. I had some new Christmas paper from Best Creations, and used the glittered design on the paper to accent the fireplace. I made two versions of the card. The first one I stamped “Merry” from Wplus9, and die cut “Christmas” from Dee’s Distinctively Dies. My second card, I used the sentiment that was on the paper.

This challenges run from September 28 until October 4, 2014. I look forward to seeing your creations!
