OWH sketch #183

I made a couple of versions of this card using the same papers. I think the chipboard flowers are K&Co. I removed the pop up dots from them so they would be flat.

Harvest corn

I used OWH sketch #37 for these cards. I made 4 of each. The digital image is from Create With TLC. On the first card the long strip is a designer paper insert from a Stampington magazine. The back is dated 2005. Just a little old. The long strip on the bottom card is from one of those big pads of thin papers I bought years ago. Magnolia and Wild Asparagus I think. Half I either gave away or tossed. Some of it was pretty ugly. This sheet I liked and I used the last of it for these cards. Over the years I have learned to stay away from most of those pads of thin paper.

Horses and birds

These two cards I used the Split Coast Stampers 403 sketch. The papers on all of  the cards are older than the hills. I was able to make 2 of the bird cards. The red dots was the reverse side of the birds. I am thinking this is SEI paper. The pink cards are from Moxie paper that my daughter gave me. I wanted to use all of this cute horse paper. I made 5 of the first one and used a leftover piece for the last card. I accidently got brown ink on the striped piece so I added some more!

Too Late!

I should have picked out the background paper before I colored the images. If I had I would have done a blue cup instead of purple. Too late! The background paper is a 2009 Basic Grey paper. I bought it on clearance for $.22 in July of 2010. I think it was time for me to use it. The image is a Bugaboo digital image colored with Copics.

I have been trying to use my Copics. I am not so hot at the shading and blending.

I love you a ton!

I love this sketch. It has been a long time since I did a card with color blocking. I wouldn't make duplicates because it is time consuming but I certainly enjoyed spending several hours on just one card. Here is what I came up with. 

I used papers from a 6" pad of Authentique "Remembrance". The elephant is just a little $1 stamp. I stamped it twice and cut the gray image out and placed on top of the image with the tail. I added a little pink chalk to the ears. The flower was colored with a Glaze pen. I stamped the heart separate. Actually, the heart was part of the elephant stamp but I cut it off and stamped with colored ink. I am not adverse to whacking on my stamps especially when it is a cheap stamp. It is the first card I have made with this image. The size was perfect for this square. I have a snowman stamp also that is the perfect size so I may make a card with it.

Color me up some birds

The birds are digis from Bugaboo. I decided it was time to do some coloring with my Copics. I made 4 of the fall card and 10 of the green bird. I did some other coloring so I guess I better turn those images into cards.

A million hugs

Group pictures

Trying to use up scraps. The problem with that is you cut into more paper to go with the scraps. I made multiples of the cards in the top group. I ended with 16 cards so I decided it was time to move onto another design.
