Oh Happy Day

Hello again! I have a super quick post tonight – already 9:30pm and I’m pretty exhausted! I made a quick card for the Avery Elle Guest Designer Search. I mixed a few of my favorite floral Avery Elle sets for this quick one layer card (promise I’ll do something with more than 1 layer soon!).

The sketch was based on the current challenge over at Case this Sketch. 
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great night!

More Faux Watercoloring

Hey friends. Hope you had a great weekend. It was starting to look like spring here in Zurich and we got dumped with rain & snow just in time to enjoy the weekend. Now looking out my window onto a snow storm instead of sunshine – I think the snow is a little more unbearable once you’ve already had a taste of spring!

So, in the hopes of spring weather returning soon, I have another sherbet-colored faux watercolor card today. Same idea as this card here, just used watercolor paper for the image, which I preferred to regular cardstock.

A side note on this card – I was totally stumped for inspiration in terms of the actual layout – I often use the same sketches/designs over & over. I happened to look up from my craft desk & noticed my calendar – I used the design for March as my inspiration – everything from the layout of the flowers to the font. Amazing how these little things go un-noticed, when in actuality they can be such a big help when you’re stuck.

That is all for me today. I’ll be back tomorrow sharing some cards from the February Simon Says Stamp kit – and a little challenge I set for myself!

More one layer cards

Hello again!

Happy weekend to all of you. I’m happy its the weekend, but as luck would have it the gorgeous weather has turned dreary & wet – not sure why that always happens in time for the weekend.

Anyway, onto today’s card. This is another one for the latest Online Card Class – 1 layer cards. To see my first Copic one layer card, go here.  I watched Dawn Woleslagle’s video with amazement as she did faux watercoloring with Hero Arts ink & the Copic colorless blender – her results were stunning. Mine, not so much! But, I’m still sharing them here. It was an interesting process & I think the stamp I chose wasn’t great for the technique. Curious to try some larger stamps for this again soon.

That is all for me today. I’ll be back tomorrow with a new Paper Smooches Sparks challenge, so be sure to stop by!

Stenciled Day 1

Ok, it is already 9:30pm & I’m just now eating dinner and about to catch up on some Dowtown Abbey, so needless to say, I’m exhausted! I’m on my own this weekend with my little guy – weeknights are fine, weekends kinda suck. Ah well, did manage to squeeze in a VERY short crafty session during nap time today.

StenciledDay1

I’m participating in the Stenciled class & I only managed to watch Julie’s video as I had about 5 minutes to spare, but excited to catch up on the rest – all the projects look amazing! Anyway, this came together in a snap, which was a good thing as I needed it for a birthday party this afternoon ;-)

Alright, thats all for me – time to sit on the couch with my big bowl of zuchinni noodles & Downtown Abbey.
