CPS Challenge - Angel Anya

Every week I take a little time and blog hop, print off challenges I want to take part in, and don’t get the chance. This week, however, I have completed two challenges. I am posting one for the Card Positioning System challenge this post. The other was yesterdays, I (heart) 2 Stamp - Sketch For You To Try.

I stated last time I posted that I need birthday cards for the summer months. Lots of birthdays in my family, and for friends, in the warm months of the year. So, the card I have made for the challenge on CPS is another birthday card. I used Angel Anya, stamps from The Greeting Farm, along with sentiments from a clear Inkadinkado Brenda Walton set of Chelsea Sentiments. Anya is colored using prismacolor watercolor pencils and I have popped her wings & hair bow. The cardstock used for the actual folded card is Raspberry Bazzill. The pale teal is from DCWV, The Glitter Sweet Prints. On the inside of the card, I used just another piece of DCWV paper from The Sweet Prints, and cut around the design on the paper. The circle on the front of the card, behind Anya, is from Lasting Impressions. Fun sketch!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you come back often. Happy Stamping!


I (Heart) 2 Stamp Challenge - Sketch For You to Try

Haven’t posted for a while. May & June seem so busy. I have loved the pretty weather. I’m a summer lover; live for this time of year. Got my garden out - twice. That is a long story. Weather related. Got the pool ready to go - Waiting on warmer water. Flowers planted - Need mulch. I just feel like everything is working out. Keeping busy, which is good for me.

I made this card for the challenge on Jen del Muro’s blog - Sketch For You to Try posted last Saturday, May 30th. This sketch has been fun. I liked the lay out and it was a good sketch for me to get back into cardmaking again with. I have missed crafting, but just had so much to do.
The main image is from Whipper Snapper Designs, Shelly Comisky, Sugar n Spice. Love the characters. The images are so fun to color. This is colored using watercolor pencils. White folded card is Papertrey Ink white cardstock, gray paper from a pack I don’t know the name of, and I used Bazzill purple bling behind the image. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado Brenda Walton set of Chelsea Sentiments. I used little gems or blings on the right lower hand corner and on the white strip of paper on the front of the card. The inside is decorated with a piece of Bazzill cardstock and scrap purple Gingham.

Thank you so much for "hopping" by, and come back often. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Happy Stamping!
