FTL 234 Happy Mothers day!!

Hey everyone!! This is my first official time being a contributor on the blog!! I am very honored to be here and look forward to many more sketches!!!

So for my card today I also decided to incorporate the ColorQ 182 challenge. Took me a while to find something that worked and when I saw the sketch I knew it was meant to be!!



The color challenge was to use Always Artichoke, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party and Wisteria Wonder from SU!! The stamp I used is from the Wplus9 set mother day bouquet!!

Hope you all have a great Friday and a very happy Easter!!!

FTL234 - Happy Birthday

I wanted to make a birthday card for a friend who loves purple and irises so I used Natasha's sketch and the colors from the Color Queue Challenge (CQC182).  I used Kitchen Sink Stamps to create this 4 step stamped flower.  The butterfly and sentiment are from PaperTrey.

234!

Happy Friday!

I'm sure most people are off today. I managed to get a 4 day weekend! Yippy!

I have a family dinner this afternoon and another one tomorrow. I have to say, for some reason this year, I am missing being a kid and having the easter egg hunt.

I still have a sketch for you though!

Here it is:

Stamps:  Sent with Love bundle, Simply You
Ink: Pool Party, Island Indigo

233!

Happy Friday!!!

So... bad news... it's still been all wintery this past week. Sigh. We got hit with another large batch of snow on Monday, about half a foot. Doesn't sound like much... but add that to the 140cm we've already had this winter and it's getting quite tiresome! I want spring, and flowers, and lots of sunshine... I think you might catch that vibe in this week's card :)

Just an update on the pdf files. They are coming... eventually. The software I use to compile the sketches is on my PC, which I don't have set up. I'll get to these as soon as I can, hold tight!!

Here's the sketch:

Some measurements:
The card itself is approximately 4.25x4.25. The actual card stock is more like 4.25x8.75. There's about a half inch extra in order to make the top tab.
Next layer is 4x4
The image layer is 2.5x2.5, with a 2-5/8 x2-5/8 frame.


Here's my card. I was quite happy with how it turned out!

Supplies:
Stamps: Summer Silhouettes, It's a Jungle Out There (seriously, the happy birthday greeting is the best font and size!!!)
Ink: Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo, Summer Sunrise
Paper: Kraft, White, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party
Accessories, etc.: Edgers #5, Cover Plate: Circles, Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon Pop Dots, Corner Rounder

Some basic measurements -the square focal point is 2-1/4 x2-1/4.

Supplies:
Stamps: Birthday Basics, Flipping Out
Ink: Orange Zest, Harvest Gold, Raspberry Fizz
Paper: Simply Chartreuse, Raspberry Fizz, White, Harvest Gold, Retired Stampin' Up! DSP

FTL231 - Thank You


Hi, everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend. :) I just wanted to pop in and share the card I created using the most recent FTL231 sketch.  I tried so hard to keep this card CAS, but something tells me I failed. LOL! What can I say? I love bling! :) 

Supplies:
Stamps - Fabulous (There She Goes)
Ink - Versamark, Slate (Fresh Ink), Red Currant (Fresh Ink), Fuschia (Fresh Ink)
Paper - Soft Stone and Stamper's Select White (PTI)
Miscellaneous - Clear Gems (Hero Arts), White Embossing Powder (Hero Arts)

231!

Happy Friday!


Here is this week's sketch. I made the sketch rather specific, but you can definitely look beyond the images that I used. The main idea is to have a mostly one layer creation. It should be square and it should have some sort of fun element that extends off of the card front.

Here's my project:


Supplies:
Stamps: Up, Up and Away, Stylish Sentiments: Birthday
Paper: Spring Rain, White
Ink: Tuxedo Black
Accessories, etc: Felt, Cloud Die, Balloon Die, Copic

As always if you play along, feel free to post a link to your project:

Supplies: PaperTrey card stock and patterned paper; Bosskutz flower die, WPlus9 Leaves die, PTI Daisy Die (flower center); Rub-on (sentiment), Memento Tuxedo Black ink (distress on sentiment edge); Copic Micro Multiliner pen; Foam Squares, Glue Dots

FTL230, Thank You From My Garden

Hi friends. I thought that I'd pop in real quick to share with you a card that I made for this challenge. I love the spring colors that I used on this card and am very happy with the way that it turned out and hope that you are too. It was so easy to make just cutting a few layers, two die-cuts and then stamping my leaves and sentiment directly onto the white card stock.

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me today

Happy Friday! Happy March!

I hope you're ready for another sketch.

Here's my card!


Not much to say as far as dimensions go. It's your standard A5 card. The main layer is 3.5x4.75. I wanted some fun texture. I stamped my kraft cardstock, cut out the leaves, then edged the sides with the tea ink. The flowers were stamped, then I over stamped with vintage cream.


Supplies:
Stamps: Beautiful Blooms II, Inside & Out: Birthday, Textstyle II
Ink: Melon Berry, Vintage Cream, Chai Tea Ink, Classic Kraft
Paper: Confetti White, Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Melon Berry
Accessories, etc.: wooden buttons, hemp thread, pop dots
