So I posted the sketch on the Sketch Challenge and Karen posted the color challenge (gray, yellow, white).

Well I happened to have a ton of yellow and gray scraps because I helped a friend last year with wedding signs and she gave me all the scraps. So I decided the sketch and color challenge should go together. Well then I went to Michael’s and guess what they had in their $1.50 bins….yep yellow, white, gray and black flowers. They were PERFECT!! They only had big ones in white…so I took off the center of the white one and put a medium black flower on top of it. So then I went back to the jewel aisle and found the perfect jewel swirls and got them discounted with a coupon!!! SCORE!!! I finally got a “wow” out of my husband when he looked at it….haven’t got one lately so I was excited!! I left the tag blank because it really could be for many different occasions…birthday, wedding, sympathy.

So I was going to go horizontal with the sketch but after seeing Cardiographer use a vellum tag to the side I decided to do that same thing with cardstock. Thanks Cardiographer.

This is my 2nd card with sketch #1 from the August Card Sketch Challenge. I saw this sketch and thought it would be perfect for a friend of mine who just became a grandma for the first time. The colors on the card are the colors of the nursery. I wanted a fun happy card cause that is the type of grandma my friend will be. Now the card didn’t come out as cute as I pictured but she loved it so that is all that matters. And I finally used my Sew Easy that I have had forever!!

So I found a Swap thread called Angel Swap. It’s not a normal swap because you swap names of someone that could use “happy mail/encouragement” in their mailbox (like an elderly friend/relative, or friend/relative going through rough time, someone sick, etc) . Then you get a name and make that person a card. At first I thought “well I should just be making the person a card instead of some stranger” but God prompted me to play this month. This month was a little different as we sent cards to the other “angels” instead of someone we nominated. And it was funny because I got Ro and she got me!! So this card was sent to Ro because she loves daisies! I saw this trim at Hobby Lobby and thought of her and Sketch #1 of the August Card Sketch Challenge and thought they would work well together.

I also made 2 cards for sketch #1 (August Card Sketch Challenge). This was the 2nd ideal that came to me when I saw the trim!!

Anime Birthday Card

Anime Birthday Card.JPG

I needed a birthday card for my 13 yoa niece. She is into Anime and she likes to draw. I found some anime digis I liked but they were only black and white and I needed color since husband was busy and had no time to color one for me. So I found this one and it came b/w and color!! I liked that it had a cutesy aspect to it instead of more grown up. She is growing up fast enough so I will hold onto cutesy as long as I can. Which when she saw the card she said oh she is pretty I like her!! Once I had the image then I went looking for inspiration on the design. August Inspirational Card Challenge – Lift Category – is to lift any of Mendi Yoshikawa’s cards in her gallery. The first card in her gallery I thought was perfect:
http://www.scrapbook.com/galleries/817285/view/5704823/4/0/0.html
The front says “Happy Birthday” in Japanese. On the inside we put “In Japanese that says “You’re a Big Fat Green Booger” and then in very little font under that (…or it means Happy Birthday). She immediately got out her phone to look up what it REALLY meant!!! She doesn’t trust my husband after all the practical jokes he has pulled on her!!

Triple Matte Technique

3 Comments

Manger Scene

I was so excited to see The Paper Studio come out with a Christian Christmas Paper pack. Since I’m not a traditional stamper I’m always on the lookout for Christian Christmas stickers or papers. I wasn’t sure if I could use this piece of the pack because of how big the scene was but I was able to capture enough in a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 card. I then used the triple matte technique…instead of stamping the design I used paper with a design on it. I then cut out the star from the original big piece and place it 3d on here.

CHALLENGES:
1) August Inspirational Card Challenge @ Scrapbook.com – Technique – triple matte technique
2) Christmas in August @ Scrapbook.com – make a Christmas card or layout.
3) ABC Christmas Challenge – Q – Q for a quick layout.
4) Christmas Card Challenge Week 38 – Anything Goes
5) Merry Monday Christmas in Summer Challenge – pick an old challenge. I picked challenge #206 – Nativity Scene.
6) Crimbo Crackers Christmas Challenge #114 – Anything Goes
7) Jingle Belles – about MUSIC … you might incorporate sheet music, musical instruments, music-themed stamps … or even make a card inspired by your favorite Christmas Carol. Just make sure you let us know what your MUSICAL elements are. Mine is based off the song “Away in a manger”

SUPPLIES:
Patterned Paper: The Paper Studio (Away in a Manger)
