This week at Cupcake Craft Challenges we have a new sketch to follow. It was talented Ceal's turn to decide a challenge and she gave us this lovely sketch. Go and take a look at her blog after reading mine :).. she has some lovely makes.
Now for this card: At first I started to think how I will cut a perfect oval, as I still don't have oval nesties, but then I rememberd that in a Birthday RAK I had received two oval nesties shapes! Yay!! I never cease to thank God for wonderful crafting friends :)
Anyway, I chose some coordinating papers, Tilda images and some other bits and started to work. I layered the oval on cream cardstock, cut around with scalloped scissors and distressed the edges with Distress Ink. Tilda and the chair are coloured in Pencils. I really enjoyed myself colouring her in. I never made her hair black, and I admit I like it this way! :)
Last thing I added was this bracket I doodled myself on Vellum paper with printed hearts (doesn't show at lot) and mounted the small paper roses on the edges. I love the effect this gave IRL.
For this WCMD card (I started celebrating by making this one) I used:
RAK paper (so don't know the name.. sorry) White and cream cardstock DCWV Text Prints Stack Royal & Langnickel Mettalic Foils Rub on Sizzix heart die K & Co Brenda Walton small Love sentiment small wooden peg from stash small paper roses deep red organza ribbon Just for You paper ribbon on top of organza
I ALWAYS said that crafters are very good-at-heart people. And I want to dedicate this card to my lovely friends around the globe that think of me. As I was making the list of stash I used, I realised that other then the cardstock text print and Love sentiment, the rest are all RAKs! These firends of mine, knowing that I can't but that much stash and that I don't find what I wish here.. send me bits and pieces from the "ever growing and more than I can use" stuff.. as they call it! I'M SO GRATEFUL to you all, and I hope that you do come and visit here to see what you're helping me create. Hugs and kisses sent to you.xxx
Enough talk... I hope to see your lovely entries for this week's challenge. Each week the number is increasing, but we would like to see more. Peace and Blessings Rosette.xx
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
