STRAWBERRY SKETCHES - SARAH BERRY - #SS009

Image
Hello Everyone, It is that time of the Week again. For another Strawberry Sketch. The Weeks are rolling around fast now. Here in Australia, we are in our second week of spring. 
The weather has been iffy this week, threatening rain during the day but thank goodness there is a little wind to keep it away;  great for doing the washing though the clothes and especially the bedding smells so lovely after being out in the breeze and the sun to dry.
I love springtime, as Birds of all different species are back again making homes in the trees and all the flowers are blooming with beautiful colours.

The Strawberry Sketches sketch this week is a beauty, definitely fits Spring here in Australia, as there are lots of Butterflies, fluttering from one blossom to another.
Isn't Life Grand?

Sarah Designed the card below using the  Strawberry Sketches Sketch




So here below is my Inspiration from the Sketch this week;  Of course, I was not going to miss making a card with a Butterfly. I adore …

HAPPY FRIDAY - CRAZY CRAFTERS BLOG HOP - TEAM PROJECT HIGHTLIGHTS

Image
Hello and Happy Friday to you all. Gee this week has come to an end so quickly. Maybe it is because being a team member of Crazy Crafters and Nicole's Infinity Stampers there is always something to do, learn, create or be inspired by the wonderful talent we have in our ever growing team.


For the next few weeks the cards I will enter into Blog Hops for the Team Projects, and Blog Hops that are CASEing International Stampin' Up! Demonstrators will be the designs for cards I am making for Commissioned Order. 
There will be a total of 6 Box Sets made consisting 10 Assorted Genres. One order is for Five Boxes to be gifting to Work Colleagues, and a Single order for an elderly lady, who always likes to have cards on hand.





   This is card suitable for the Male - Thinking of You Card
I have decided to make all the Boxed Sets the same so then there will be no animosity among the work colleagues lol.  

This is my List for the Assorted Boxed Sets of Cards.

Hello Everyone, It is that time of the Week again. For another Strawberry Sketch.
The Weeks are rolling around fast now. Here in Australia we are in our first week of spring. Thank goodness as it has been a super cold winter this year.  I love springtime, as it means very soon it will be our beautiful hot summer.

This is the sketch for me to CASe - Copy and Selectively edit or Copy and Share everything. Or just go with where my creative mind took me.

I decided to do the latter, so here is my inspiration from the above Strawberry Sketch.

FRIDAY'S INTERNATIONAL - CRAZY CRAFTERS BLOG HOP - 2 SEPTEMBER 2016

Hello and Happy Friday Everyone.
Tonights, Blog Hop is with my Crazy Crafter Team Members. Highlighting their talent in presenting a Card or Project and Sometimes it can be more of what they have made this week.

I was asked to make Thank you Cards for a Lady to she send them to people who had attended her beloved husband of 60 years funeral.

The order consisted of 20 A6 Cards and Envelopes.  For you who have visited my Blog before, you have come to realise I like to decorate my Envelopes to match the Cards I make.

Now I know it is not the norm to add work to Blog Highlights that has Retired Stamp Sets used for the work. BUT I have not been well, this past week. Unfortunately, I have a very bad Chest Infection and I have not had the energy to sit and make Cards this week.

I also decided to make boxes and place the Thank you Cards and Envelopes inside for Presentation.

Whether the Stamp Set was a Retired One or From the Current Catalogues, you can see the stamps are from Stampin' Up!®, as…

FEMALE BIRTHDAY CARD - 21ST - A5 SIZE - SPECIAL ORDER

Image
Hello and Welcome once again to my Blog.
I was asked to make a Special A5 Size 21st Birthday Card. the person ordering left it entirely up to me for the whole design. This was a wonderful honour for me to think that I was able to design the card with my own ideas.
Not knowing what the recipient of the card liked I decided that Whisper White will be the Card with accents of Gold Glitter Card. Hoping all the time the 21st Birthday Girl will love the Gold and not shout out, ' but I only like Silver'. 
Gold is a more precious metal. So I decided Gold it is!

 Using the Big Shot along with the Botanical Builders Framelits and the Large Number Framelits and the Layering Oval Framelits the Card front was ready to assemble.  I soon realised that the card front needed my signature 
BLING!
So this I decided the beautiful shimmer on the Stampin' Up! Basic Pearls were what I needed to use. The Shimmer of the Pearls with the Glitter of the Gold Paper give the perfect balance for the card.

CRAZY CRAFTERS BLOG HOP - SPECIAL GUEST - WENDY CRANFORD

Welcome to another Crazy Crafters Blog Hop, this is #4 for this month August 2016, and today we are honoured to have a lovely lady called Wendy Cranford all the way from the USA blogging along the side of us.

Wendy Cranford

There were so many different choices to be had while looking at Wendy's creations. Trying to decide was like being a child again in a Candy Store saying "Oooh I like that one"and so on. 
I finally decided on a card that Wendy created over 4 years ago, this coming Halloween. 
As I do not celebrate Halloween myself , I CASEd the card to almost identical with the way Wendy designed the pattern and the sizes of card and paper that were to be cut. 
The reason why I chose this card and made it almost identical is that I have not made this type -A Patchwork - Card before. I really enjoyed doing this, and I will definitely look for Wendy's other card she has tutorials on for me to have a go too.








Above is the Video of Wendy Cranford's Tutorial of the Card I …

This is Sarah's Card
Now it’s over to Me! I can interpret this sketch how I wish, it can all be the same or they can all be different. It’s really up to Me.   Sarah wrote: - Please use my sketch as a starting point and see where it takes you. As she is excited to see what I create!


This morning when I awoke from my slumber, I did not feel like sticking a huge Flower on a card, I had the urge to make Owls!!! Brightly coloured Owls, with hearts, and I knew …
