CAS(E) This Sketch #268

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #268 designed by Chrissy Larson:


I used the sketch to make some tags.
Here they are:


I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp/Wplus9's Many Thanks stamp set
in versafine onyx black and heat embossed it in clear.


I masked off the one half and used some Altenew inks to blend in the one side 
(I used Mango Smoothie & Pinkalicious and blended them together in the middle.)


Here I did the same thing with Mango Smoothie & Volcano Lake.

Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop

I'm sneaking in at the last minute today to share a card 
that I made for today's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
 

 This month's challenge was to use this photo as inspiration:


Isn't it pretty? 
It's so perfect for spring and for Easter.
I loved the pretty flowers on the background of the grey wall.
Here's my card:


I stamped the main lined image from Fresh Bouquet in versamark and heat embossed it 
in white on bristol board.
I coloured them in using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolours.
I diecut them using its coordinating die and adhered it to a grey cardstock panel.



I stamped my sentiment (from Stamp Market) onto my background in versamark,
which I heat embossed in white.

Inspired By All the Little Things #81

Today, I have a card to share for 
Inspired By All the Little Things #81:

I was inspired by the white flowers with green stems in glass bottles,
as well as the old script lettering on the bottles.
I decided to use my Essentials by Ellen Mondo Hydrangea stamp set to make my card:


I stamped my flowers and leaf onto their coordinating diecuts in Altenew
Evergreen and Moon Rock inks and stamped them a second time in versamark, so I could
heat emboss them in clear.
I repeated this process with the glass jar from Lawn Fawn's Summertime Charm.
I coloured them in using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolours.



 I stamped my sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp's Big Scripty Sentiments) in Altenew Evergreen ink and added a strip of patterned paper, onto which I blended some lime green ink.

Pin-Sights, Colour Throwdown and Freshly Made Sketches

It's the long weekend here and I've had some time to spend in my craft area,
which has been really nice!

I've decided that one way I can make the most of my time would be to
make a few cards using the same stamp set, while I have it out.

So, I decided to use my Ellen Hutson Mondo Hydrangea stamp set
to make two cards.

The first one is for the February Pin-Sights Challenge:




Here's my card:


I stamped the image in Altenew Turquoise ink and then a second time, using
my MISTI in versamark, so I could heat emboss it in clear.
I coloured it in using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolours.


I adhered it over two strips of cardstock using dimensional adhesive and 
stamped my sentiment (from PTI's Songbirds) in Altenew Evening Grey.

And I made my second card using Colour Throwdown #480:


Here's my card:


With some masking, I stamped the leaves in Papertrey Ink New Leaf ink and 
then a second time, using my MISTI in versamark, so I could heat emboss it in clear.
I repeated these steps with the flowers, using Altenew Deep Iris.
I coloured everything in using my Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolours.


I stamped my Concord & 9th Barnboard Background on a strip of watercolour paper
in Altenew Evening Grey and stamped my sentiment (from PTI's KIS: Sympathy)
on a strip of grey cardstock and heat embossed it in white.

MFT 2018 Creative Olympics

I had some time to craft this afternoon and was looking
for some challenges by which to be inspired.
I found the MFT Creative Olympics and decided to play
along with two of their challenges.

I made this first card for the first event: Stamping Slalom,
where we needed to use three different stamp sets on one card.


I also used the current MFT Wednesday Sketch 372:


and the current MFT Colour Challenge 87:


Here's my card:


I used MFT's Beautiful Butterflies, the accompanying sentiment set
and the leaves from the Grateful set.


I also played along with the fourth event: Speed Cardmaking:




I used the same sets and made this card in 13:29 seconds.
