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.
