Inside Sketch and a Freebie

There is a new challenge today at Stamp Fairy Challenge Blog, and the theme to play along with this week is a sketch, but with a twist, you also have to decorate the inside of your card too.    Also don't forget you have to use a StampFairy digi to be able to win.

This card is for my hubby whose birthday is on Thursday.  I tried to keep it really simple and uncluttered.  I didn't want to add lots of embellies on a man's card as it would be too fussy.  I'm really bad at cards for men, so I really hope he likes this one.  I've used Lenny Bubbles and made a "V" shaped front so that the top of the inside is partially visible when the card is closed.  I had to ensure that I lined up the inside sentiment panel perfectly so that it doesn't show when the card is closed.





Here's the sketch:

    Trees Galore & a DT Call

    There is a new challenge today at Incy Wincy, and the theme to play along with this week is Trees.  We're sponsored by Limited Runs who have kindly supplied some digi images for the design team to showcase.  I chose 'Single Pine', although I then used it 3 times (so maybe not so single any more!).  I love combining images, and not only used the tree 3 times, including flipping the image horizontally before I used it on the right hand side of the card, but I also added a Magnolia image to create more of a scene.

    This is my final week as a DT member with the One Stop Craft Challenge.  I'm so sad to say goodbye to the lovely ladies on the team, but I know that the new teamies will be joining soon and will have lovely creative projects for us all to enjoy.  Thanks to everyone who has joining in the challenges while I've been on the team, and I've loved seeing all your fab creations every week.

    Molly Winter Drawer Box

    It is Friday so there is a new release and freebie today at Stamp Fairy.  Today's set is  Molly Winter 2.

    Here is a project that I've made using one of the digis from the newly released set.  I made the drawers from scratch (yes they took a while to make, but I think they were worth it).  And once they were made, it was fun to decorate the box and make the easel for the top.  I used pale blue beads for the little handles, held on with blue wire, twisted at the back and pushed through the drawer fronts. I rubbed all the edges with brown ink to make them stand out a bit.

LOL

    J-Fold Molly Birthday Card

    It is the second week of our Glitter challenge at Stamp Fairy Challenge Blog, and the StampFairies have created some more fab inspiration for you to view.  Here's mine, using Molly Peekers.

    This card is a J-fold card, something I've not tried before, but it is kind of cute, and soooo easy to do.  I really love this strawberry and chocolate colour theme too.  It is lovely and girlie.  I've decorated the inside too with complementary papers, and kept the embellies to a minimum to make the image stand out.  Also there is quite a lot of shape on the card with the folds, so I didn't want to overload it with accessories.  My clean and simple look, huh !!!

    I used orange and brown papers, and added some yellow in the form of pearls. I also used my Sakura stardust pens to add some sparkle, and some Stickles around the edge of the card base.

    Make it Sparkle

    There is a new challenge today at 2 Sisters Challenges, and the theme to play along with this week is Make it Sparkle.  We're sponsored by The Crafty Pad and Glitterbabes who have both kindly supplied some digi images for the design team to showcase.  I've chosen to showcase Glitterbabes' Holiday Presents. I love combining images to make more of a scene and therefore I've printed and cut out the presents and popped them at the feet of my Tilda image.  It makes more of a scene rather just one single image.  I've glittered the balloon, Tilda's bow, and the ribbons on the presents for my sparkle.

    Sketchy Inspiration with Barry Bear

    I've used my new Barry Birthday image - isn't he a CUTIE !!!  I know most of us are well into the Christmas spirit, but I thought I'd throw a cupcake into the mix and take a break from Christmas cards for this card !!!

    Get ready for some SERIOUS purple-fest !!!  The pretty butterfly ribbon matches the paper perfectly, don't you think?


    Here's the sketch too, in case you've forgotten !!!

    Barry Angel

    It is Friday so there is a new release and freebie today at Stamp Fairy.  Today's set is Barry Angel.
    Here is a card I've made using one of the digis from the newly released set.  He is such a cutie, and could be used for any occasion, but I've used snowflake papers so put a Chrismassy sentiment on the inside.  I also used one of the freebies from a previous Friday release on the inside.  Finally, I used my new Sakura stardust pens to highlight the outside edge of the image panel in pink.


    and the inside :
