Frosted Designs Card Challenge #19

wow two posts in one day.... Today  Frosted Designs have a fabulous sketch designed by Ann and this sketch card challenge is sponsored by Floppy Latte Digital Designs! you could win a $10 gift voucher


 I have embossed the image and I'm not really happy with the photo.  Embossed with a gorgeous silver powder, it looks quite shimmery from another angle.

I am totally loving this Martha Stewart punch......if my family are reading..... I would LOVE this as a present ....hint

Go and see the gorgeous cards the DT have created!!


Heartfelt

Hello and Happy Tuesday Everyone! I have found that I don't make many Sympathy cards to pop in my stash.....not something I would enjoy making.  I do like an elegant, simple card and I found the BG Little Black Dress and the Hero Arts stamps from Scrapbook Boutique a perfect choice for a understated card for this occasion.
Pop in to  Scrapbook boutique to see a tutorial for this card.


I am also joining in at  Paper Crafting Journey Black plus One Challenge this week.  My friend Alethea is on their DT and Victorine Stamps sympathy/thinking of you challenge.

Embossing......My new favourite thing....!!!

I have recently found all my embossing powders and a pack of glossy card stock I'd bought at my first ever craft show!  I spent so much and I don't think I used much of it at all!!! 

Since doing the Jennifer McGuire on line classes, I have fallen back in love with everything I've previously bought but have never used!!
I have been procrastinating about weather I really like the chevron phase, and I have come to the conclusion....I love it! 
I got this FANTASTIC  Hero Arts Cling Chevron from Scrapbook Boutique  and I think I've worn it out!
Love love love it!!!
Scrapbook Boutique have the details on how to make this card.

I am also going to SPARK my creative Spirit and join in the CR84FN color challenge this fortnight. Love the colours for this challenge!!

A little "off the page"

I'm not usually a fan of "OTP" I did have this Printer's Tray from Scrapbook Boutique by 7 Gypsies for a little while before the procrastinator in me finally agreed on 
a) a colour scheme
b) a theme
c) Photos to use
d) Who gets the biggest photo spot 
well as you can see..........Once Christie saw that was a dilemma .....she solved that problem quick smart lol.

I really loved putting this together and once you have your plan, It comes together quickly.  
A tip though, sketch on paper first where you would like things
and 
MEASURE TWICE & CUT ONCE......
