Hello Foxy for GDP # 029

Robyn and I have a couple of cards we created for The Global Design Project this week.  It is a color challenge with some great options for us.  Here is the design sketch we followed:

Robyn used paper from Stampin’ Up and stamps from Papertrey Ink.  Her sweet embelishments are SU’s candy dots.  My card is a notecard sized base with paper from Bazzil, SU, & Richard Gray.  The sentiment is from Paper Smooches.  There are more great ideas at http://www.globaldesignproject.com so be sure to check them out.

Thanks for stopping by!

Sending Many Thanks for Mojo Monday #441

It was up bright and early this AM for the “Sisters” as we yawned out way through this week’s challenge.  Because we work together across the miles via video chatting some of us are up before the sun while the others are on their second cup of coffee ready to roll.  We have a good time and that’s what it’s all about.  This week’s sketch was fun and seemed to offer a good amount of creative effort.  Here is the sketch:

Karen had her card finished in no time and it’s very fitting for leading off our blog this week.  With great pastel colors she has created a perfect springtime greeting.  So sweet and her simple scored edges complete the fresh look.

How about something foxy?  Robyn has the perfect 4 1/4″ square card for you.  Foxes have long been part of her life and she loves most things with this little creature.  Her colors are chosen for another challenge that we will also be entering this week.  Scoring some of the panels adds interest without being too busy.  Very sweet!

Thank-You for CAS(E) this Sketch #165

Here is a short and sweet post for this week’s challenge over at CAS(E) this Sketch.  The design is simple and allows for some great interpretation.

 

The card is a 4 1/4″ square that will fit into an A2 envelope with ease. I tried creating my own background paper by using a couple of stamps from Stampin’ Up’s Timeless Textures and am pleased with the results.  I hope you are inspired by my card.

Project Materials 

  • Paper:  Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, & Pear Pizzaz–Stampin’ Up
  • Stamps:  Timeless Textures, January ’16 Paper Pumpkin, & Grateful Bunch–SU
  • Die:  Circle Scribbles–Papertrey Ink

Hello for Mojo Monday #440

Today’s Mojo Monday challenge offered some fun ideas as the Snipin’ Sisters gathered to create their cards.  Here is this week’s sketch:

This is the card Sharon created.  It took awhile and I hope you like it.  Sometimes it just takes some time to come up with the color, paper, and message that works even with the design already established.

Project Materials

  • Paper:  Subtles DSP Stack & Whisper White–Stampin’ Up;   Thick & Thin Paper Pack– My Favorite Things 
  • Diecuts:  Stitched Circle & Stitched Scalloped Circle–MFT;    Petite Places:  Home & Garden–Papertrey Ink
  • Stamps:  Petite Places:  Home& Garden–PTI;  ‘Hello’ from February Paper Pumpkin–SU
  • Ink:  Crisp Cantalope, Old Olive, Wisteria Wonder, Basic Black & Soft Suede–SU

Robyn’s  sympathy card is so lovely and dear.  Perfect for the family that is grieving the loss of a family member.  Sympathy cards don’t need to be somber.  The sweet and soft yellow rose is a simple reminder that says you care.

The Paper Players #286

Karen was excited about joining The Paper Players this week for their color challenge.  She also entered two other challenges with her creative card (Mojo Monday & The Global Design Project).   This is the color sketch she followed:

These colors are a bold collection and at first thought might seem more suitable for another season, but Karen’s card is proof that it’s not the case.

Karen used Papertrey Ink’s Swoosh for her sentiment and a 2 1/2″ scalloped circle with some polka-dot paper from her scrap box.  With the challenge colors as accents her card is fun and quick to create.  Please visit http://www.thepaperplayers.blogspot.com for more great ideas.

Mojo Monday # 439

Here we go again with our cards for this weekly challenge.  Here is the design sketch we followed:

The lead off card is one Karen created to be included in other challenges this week.  This fun card with the dots and great color combinations was quick to put together.

Sharon took some creative license with her interpretation of this week’s sketch.  The card is a notecard size (3 1/2”x 5″) requiring some movement of the sketch components.  Having just received  the ‘happy’ in the mail she just had to put into a card.
