Hang In There Friend...Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

It's time to play along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge - > HERE




 I am late but finally was able to play with the Growing Through It special stamp set. I paired it with the True Love paper pack.
 I used the Fancy Tags and Stitched Square thin cuts. I colored the image using ShinHan markers. The sentiment was stamped in Eggplant. I used a white gel pen to add accent to the flower pot and the sticker bow from the True Love complements.

Birthday Balloon Fun...Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

It's Atlantic Hearts Sketch time. Check out the sketch below and click HERE to join in on the fun!!


I decide to use the Party Balloons stamp and thin cuts to create this card. I had fun masking the balloons after I stamped them and adding clouds to the background. 

 The paper collection is True Love. I went with colors in the collection Sugarplum, Eggplant and Sapphire. I also addd black stars to go along with the black ribbons on the balloons. 

To add a little flair I used my white gel pen to accent the balloons. I really like how this card turned out.

Here is my take on the sketch. I stamped and colored three flowers from the Escape to Paradise stamp set. The sentiment is from the God is Good stamp set. 

 I added a few accent lines to the flowers with a white gel pen. 

I like how everything came together using the Craft On paper pack and the stitched rectangle thin cut.

Love You To Pieces...Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

If you are ready to be challenged head on over to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and play along. You can find the challenge HERE.

I tend to focus too much on the design shapes and I was fixated on the shape in the sketch and then figured I would go with placing an object where the image is.

 I played with two new CTMH products - Crafting Shapes thin cuts and the Made for Each Other stamp set.

I love how the scissors look so real by cutting the base using silver foil paper. I then cut the handles out using card stock. Super cute!! Just think of all the colored scissors you can make lol
 
The puzzle pieces are sooo cute! Figured they would be nice to add to mesh well with the sentiment.

Proud Of You....Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

How cute is this sketch?! Play along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge HERE.





I wanted to use the paper from the new Craft On paper collection so I went with a bright color pallet.

I used the CTMH Art Philosophy cricut cart to cut out the oval shapes. The sentiment is from the Word Search Highlights stamp set. 
 
I stayed with the sketch and added two butterflies. The butterflies are from the Dreamin Big stamp and thin cut bundle. I used a combination of Lilac/Thistle and Raspberry/Pixie inks for the butterflies.  I added a few enamel dots in pink and purple to finish off the card.

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?!
