CPS #128

Posted by Jeannette on 13 August 2009

I’m a bit later than usual with this one.  I knew what I wanted to do just didn’t have the time till now.  I must have taken about 30 photos of this card today but just can’t get it to look right, I have a splitting headache which might be contributing to the fact that the colours are out.  I’m not happy with the photo but to save my sanity I have posted it anyway.  I’ll revisit the photography tomorrow.

CPS #127

Posted by Jeannette on 2 August 2009

I really had fun with this one, and sort of did it blind as I had only seen the DT samples and not the actual sketch itself.  Which maybe wasn’t a bad thing because I normally stick to sketches whereas this one is slightly of course.  I used the Masking technique for the flowers and I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out.

CPS #123

Posted by Jeannette on 11 July 2009

Well I’m rather late with this challenge this week.  Normally I get it done on a Sunday as soon as CPS updates their blog, but with having travelled so much last weekend I had a lie in think ing I had most of the day to catch up.  It was OH’s Dads Birthday aswell and we were having a party for him as it was a BIG one.  I thought we had to be there for 6 that evening but OH told me at about 12 that it was at 2pm, so needless to say I didn’t get anything done.   Better late then never as they say.

CPS #123

I know it looks like I’ve used Apricot Appeal CS here, but what I did was take some Barely Banana CS and went around the edges with the Apricot Appeal marker.  I did this because once I had stamped the Petals Wheel onto the Barely Banana the colour of the Apricot CS didn’t quite match anymore, the yellow of the card changed the colour slightly.

Supplies Used:
1. Card – SU! Whisper White, BArely Banana, and Certaily Celery Textured CS
2. Papers -None
3. Stamps – Sugar Nellie’s Daisy, SU! Wow Flowers and SU! Petals Stampin’ Wheel
4. Embellishments – SU! Soft Subtles Brads, and SU! Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals
5. Tools – None
6. Mediums – SU! Classic Stampin’ Pads and Markers

It’s A Girl!

Posted by Jeannette on 24 June 2009

Yes, another Baby Card!  I’m totally loving these Background stamps, they’re perfect for making sure everything matches and you’ve probably noticed I’m into the Piercing Tool too at the moment.  I think it’s just the thing for adding to your card when something is missing but without going over the top.  I do promise to move off the straight lines pretty soon and try something else.   I thought this card was perfect for the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday, it’s “Tag. You’re It!”

CPS #121

Posted by Jeannette on 21 June 2009

I don’t know about anybody else but after last Christmas I had decided to do things a bit different and the idea was to do 5 Christmas cards a month so by the time November came around they would all be done.  To date that means I should have nearly 30 cards, half way there, right?  Wrong, guess how many I have, including this one?  1, One, a single card!  Oh well you have to start somewhere, I doubt I’ll be catching up any time soon, hopefully by Christmas though.  I decided to use my Simply Scrappin’ Kit to see just how easy it is to make cards, and while I did enjoy using it  I’m thinking that I’ll probably keep it for Scrap-booking.  I seem to be struggling with the quality of my photo’s again, and it doesn’t help that it’s overcast at the moment.  I keep meaning to make a Photo Box, perhaps I’ll make a start on that soon.

CPS #121-2

Supplies Used:
SU! I Wish Simply Scrappin’ Kit

A Passion for Papertrey Challenge 8

Posted by Jeannette on 18 June 2009

I’m finding it really hard to sit down and make a card after I’ve been working on a computer for 8 or 9 hours solid.   Can you tell?  I wasn’t too happy with this card, but this morning when I walked into my Craft room and saw it on the bookshelf it looked pretty good!  I may have to have another go at this challenge on Saturday, but if you want to see some fab cards go take a look at what Steph and Kate made.

Kay Miller and Kay Carley on the same card, how fab is that? This is my attempt at the CPS challenge this week. I normally try and get it done on the Sunday but I had another project I was working on so I’ve only just got round to doing it last night. I think the the Backing Paper and the Stamps work so well together.

CPS #118

Posted by Jeannette on 31 May 2009

I really enjoyed this weeks CPS Sketch. I took abit longer than usual on planning this one. I wnated to do something a bit different, I’m getting a bit bored with the normal Square and Rectangular card shapes, although when flat it is rectangular so technically I didn’t stray to far. When I started this I had decided on the papers, matting and layering and the card colours, I had no idea that it would turn into a Baby Card.

Supplies Used:
1. Card – White from Stash, SU! Old Olive, Bashful Blue, and So Saffron
2. Paper – SU! Junior Varsity DSP
3. Stamps – SU! Bundle of Joy
4. Ribbons – SU! Bashful Blue Tafetta Ribbon and SU! Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals
5. Buttons – SU! Soft Subtles
6. Tools – Scallop Circle and Circle Nesties
