Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 86. - Remember anyone can do this, it is an open challenge for anyone and is 

This is an old stamp that was purchased long ago when thinking of wanting to make cards.   Was designing and making collector's bears at the time, and this was a Boyd's Bear stamp.  He is called Manheim the Moose.   So got him out to colour and again the stash of Christmas paper from who knows when. 

He is coloured with copics  E11, E13, E15,  E31, E37, E42, E53, G47

Took the white stock and layered the beautiful pear stock  with the designer paper, added the ribbon trim, (my bulk supplier), then adhered to the white stock.  Next a pair of the many scissors living here was picked to do two ends of the coloured piece, it was popped up and placed on the front.     As usual the inside is the green and white layers again and a verse from the computer printed on and adhered. 


Here is the original sketch for AHSC 86 which anyone can enter and it is here. 

This is the original sketch.    Of course no sentiment on mine as usual. 

This is another card with paper from that box found when going through things to find another home for, so am using up.   It is beautiful red shimmery stripes, more on the burgundy side of the red, and cream/ivory colour.

Took it and paired it with the Colonial White Stock, then added a touch of the Ruby  ink around the edges of the Stock used for the stamp.   Was going to colour the stamp a had for a sample, but loved the look of it like this, so no colour on this one.  This was one purchased a while ago when on a shopping day and it actually is a to and from stamp, for doing tags, but just left that off.   A Penny Black stamp.   And the Merry Christmas is from Impressed by Stamping.    Again wanted a double lined one that size, so thankfully have that one to use.   

For the inside, kept it really simple using a matching piece of the Colonial White stock, but sponged about the edges with the ruby ink again and then using the stamp set from a while back called Merry and Bright from Close To My Heart used one of the sentiments on it stamped in the Ruby.   

I keep the Christmas stamps and sentiment stamps as one never knows when that exact sentiment will suit a card.    Especially at this season.  Depends on whom the card is going to what goes inside for my cards to most people.   

This one says "Let the Spirit of Christmas bring you joy"  and thought it just matched. 

The Ribbon again is from my bulk stash.  
And there it is.  Hope you enjoy the simplicity of it.

This card was done for a class where we were using dies.  

The card was using the Thistle Stock as the base, taking the White Daisy and  sponging with the  Thistle ink.

The die is from Impression Obsession that we were using for Christmas Cards, and have no idea why using this colour came to mind, but liked it when done. 

The Sentiment is one from Impressed by Stamping as the space required that size of stamp in my thinking to offset the design a bit instead of one right across the top.  So that was used instead of one of the many Christmas ones from CTMH here.  

The inside again is layered with the white sponged a bit, as well as the edges to match the front pieces then stamped with a saying from a retired set called Card Chatter, Christmas.   (There are a few of the old sets that are so loved that they are staying here.) 

Thanks for stopping by. 

Challenge    # 84  At Atlantic Hearts  

This is late posting to the group page, but am so happy.  Tried colouring again and am able to do some.   So here is a stocking for you,. 

Took it and then got out my die cuts already done to see what would work, and liked this LR0 116 from Marianne Dies at Cuddly Buddly the best, so ran with it.   Played around with the ribbon as wanted some on it as well, and came up with that part. 

Put it together and tried various tag cutouts for a sentiment and with everything here did not like them.  They took away from Toby, so pulled the extra die cut flourishes, again from LRO116 from Marianne Dies at Cuddly Buddly and they seemed to fit better. 

The paper is from a stash found in a 12 x 12 paper holder of Christmas papers.  Looked like a perfect fit, so used it, but have to admit no idea where from.

This is coloured with :
Touch Twin Markers:  1, 2, 50, 54, 55, 102, 107
Copic Markers:           E31, E25, E50, E51, E53, R46
Promarkers:                Sleigh Bell for the gold, Heat Wave and Red Sweater. 
Spica Glitter pen

Here is the finished front, and inside is the green with a verse from my computer system on top of it.    Enjoy.

Here is the original sketch for this card

Whoo hoo,   Tried colouring again and it is able to be done now.  For how long, not sure, but lovin it.  and went back to the bin with the older second copies for records in it and found this one when putting new ones in there.  Obviously it had to be finished and posted.   So here it is, in a 5.5" square card.
A digital from Cuddly Buddly.  Have used it before on anniversary cards with dies etc, but decided this should be a less fussy and blank so someone can use for wedding, anniversary, engagement or whatever they want.  

The wee bears were done with Copics E50, 51, 53, then went to R 83 and 85 for the flowers.  Love the rose coloursl.  Added a bit of G43 for the wee leaves and done. 

Of course then had to go round with the best colour thought to be the lightest and that was Touch Twin 146 

The wee hearts were cut on the cricut from the Art Philosophy cartridge from CTMH which can be found by clicking on the shop link on the top right on my site.  From the White Daisy, the same as the card stock.

When going through things to pitch here found a 12 x 12 paper holder and this paper was in it, and colours were so close, had to use it.
