You Are So Loved....Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

It's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge time! Play along by clicking HERE.


Super cute sketch that I decided to turn into a love them. I used patterned paper and a zip strip from the CTMH Craft On paper collection. (The outer heart outline is from a CTMH paper collection but not sure which one. Looks like I left the outer part in the thin cut and since it was black and white I used it 😂)

 I used the stitched square and hearts thin cuts. The hearts thin cut allows you to use the outer and inner pieces so I did both. I love how the outline of the heart looks. 

The "You Are So Loved" sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Simple Strips stamp and die. 
I added some bitty sparkles for flair.

Smile...Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

I am loving this weeks sketch. I love bows and while I normally stick to bows this time I decided to try something a little different and go outside the box. You can play along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge -> HERE.





Here is my interpretation of this sketch. Instead of using the bow I decided to add this cute baby alligator from the Little Aussies stamp set. I colored him using Shin Han markers and added a white accent line using a gel pen.

I decided to add balloons from the To My Bestie stamp of the month. It was missing something and adding this image worked well. Since I added a heart next to the sentiment I also added the three hearts to the top left corner to to keep inline with the sketch. 

I paper pieced the balloons using patterned paper from the Magical paper collection.

Florals...Heart 2 Heart Challenge

Oh what fun I had playing along with the Heart 2 Heart "Floral" themed challenge. You can check out the challenges by clicking -> HERE.

I wanted to play with the new May stamp of the month "To My Bestie". While I absolutely love the girlfriends style image I thought this would be a great challenge to hone in on the floral stamp that comes along in this set.

The flower images were colored using Shin Han makers. I decided to leave some of the flowers white instead of coloring them for a different look. The colored flowers are popped up to give them dimension.
I can't get enough of the square thin cuts. I decided to make the card patterned pretty much the same however added a difference with the color of the flowers. 
 
The sentiment is from the Wordfetti stamp set which is an oldie but goodie.

Congratulations....Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Are you ready to have some fun creating with the sketch at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog?! Click here to join in on the fun.

I wanted to use bright colors for this card so I went with the I Heart Us paper pack.


I used the Stitched Rectangle and Scallop Borders thin cuts to build out the sketch. The corner of the frame was empty so I decided to add a butterfly from the Butterfly Friendship stamp and thin cuts. I opted to stamp the inside with Canary ink to pull from the little bit of yellow that was present in the patterned paper. 


The card shows off two sentiments. I die cut the work "Congrats" using a die by Pink & Main and the stamped sentiment is from the "Say It All" CTMH stamp set.

Birthday Wishes...Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

It's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge time!! Check out the card sketch below. Can't wait to see your creations when you play along HERE



 How cute is this birthday card?! I had a blast playing with this sketch. I used CTMH I Heart Us paper collection and the Dandelion Wishes stamp set. I love the rainbow of colors. 

 I decided to stamp the sentiment in black so a small black accent on the end of the banner worked well. I used the Scallop Border thin cuts. I cut out some stars using my SU star dies paired with CTMH pink glitter paper. 

A few lines and dots around the border of your sentiment adds just the right touch.

You're My Favorite...Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Are you ready for this super cool sketch on the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog?! You can play along by clicking --> HERE


I adore how this card turned out. I used the new April SOTM, Love so Sweet. I started off masking the card stock. I stamped the leaves and flowers on the card stock and over the masking tape to leave behind only what I wanted exposed. 

When I removed the mask it provided me with the open white space to stamp the sentiment "You're My Favorite".  I used Willow, Sweet Leaf, Raspberry, Lagoon, Thistle and Black ink. The color combination is bright and cheery. I added a few bitty sparkles to finish off the card.

Hoppy Easter ...Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

It's sketch time!! You can play along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge -> HERE.

Ohhhhh so much you can do with this sketch. I kept it pretty simple allowing the Egg-stra Special stamp and thin cut set to work its magic. 
 
My finished card. I used the Rectangle, Square and Decorative Borders thin cuts.

 I stamped the greenery and masked it stamping the Easter egg to give the appearance the egg was sitting in the grass. I added some cute gems to the center of the die cut flowers and colored the bow using Shinhan Markers.

How cute is this little rabbit?! 

Thank you for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

Stuck On You...Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Have you seen the new Sticky Notes stamp set? Its sooo cute and I thought I would give it a little wear and tear for this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. 

I like how this card turned out. Fun and different. I used All About the Gold Fundamentals pack which is a thick clear acetate with gold foiling. Guess what?!?! You can find it for $3.75!!! on my website. So pretty! I pulled out my thin cuts and used the Stitched Rectangle, Decorative Borders and Oval thin cuts.  The stamp set is Sticky Notes and I colored the image with Shinhan Touch Twin markers.

"Birthday Wishes"....Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

So excited to share my first post as a Design Team Member of Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. If you want to challenge yourself to create and craft outside of your comfort zone this challenge is for you as well as this sketch fits with the Double Trouble Challenge. It's all about having crafty fun!!


 Here is my interpretation of the sketch. I used flowers cut from the Flower Market cricut cartridge. I love the new dies so of course I had to use them. This card features the Stitched Rectangle and Square thin cuts. 

 Heat embossing the sentiment in white really allowed it to stand out on the Desert Sand card stock. The sentiment is from the Dandelion Wishes stamp set. I love the font! 

You have probably noticed I have used the Heart Happy paper collection a lot lately. It's sooo cute and catches the eye. I love the color combinations and patterned paper.

You Mean The World To Me....Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Coming to you with Sketch #301 of the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I encourage you to join along in the challenge!!

I love the bow in this sketch! At one point I believe I put a bow on nearly every card I made 😂
 
 Here is my take on the sketch. I was thinking of my sister as I made this card. She's in California and I in Pennsylvania. I am always missing her. In this very moment this stamp set said exactly what I was thinking. 

 I paired the I Heart Us paper collection with the Wish You Were Here Stamp set. 

I worked in the Decorative Borders, circle and heart thin cuts. If you haven't tried the thin cuts you are missing out!!
