Click Collection



Last night I got on a roll creating some cards using my new sets from Mama Elephant and For the Record 2 papers from Echo Park.  Bear with me as this will be a heavy post full of cards.  Come back tomorrow as I'll share with you how I packaged up this set.

The first one uses a new sketch challenge- CAS(E) this sketch!  The sketch was very clean and simple-loved how quick this card came together although for the life of me I can't find my 1" circle die and my punch is kaput.


Don't you love that little washi tape stamp under the sentiment??

***************************************************
For this card I stamped two of the balloons on patterned paper and fussy cut them and the polka dot one is a stamp from the Good Times set.  Loving this new Lawn Fawn trimmings twine I got, nice and thick and ties easily as well.

***************************************************
Getting in right in the knick of time with the current Retro Sketches challenge.  My cameras ended up being a little off kilter on this one, not so much centered...but I'm ok with that (this time anyway).  This was a fun sketch to do.

My card uses a different set this time from Mama Elephant called We Click. I think I was sold on this set from the sentiment alone.

Ardyth's challenge over at Hope You can Cling to today is to be inspired by one (or more) of the vital signs (heart beat/pulse, temperature, blood pressure or breathing).  My card uses blue for cold (temperature) and hearts in the cameras (for heart beat/pulse)


 *************************************************** 
The sentiment in this set really cracks me up!  I wanted to keep with the same theme as my other cards so I cut the scallop part  out of the paper itself and think it turned out perfectly.  The Hope You Can Cling to Challenge for yesterday was from Lynn to use a decorative edge on your card.

The sketch is from Skipping Stones Designs and I put to use some of this gorgeous May Arts Crochet White ribbon.

 ***************************************************
This was probably the most difficult sketch for me to work with.  It's the current Fall-to-Layout and the while the design was so cool, I had the hardest time figuring out how to make it work.  I think I accomplished it.  I cut two strips of my yellow and cut them at the same angle, then flipped one so they were the opposite of one another on the card.  The little patterned strip was a left over piece of patterned paper. Another sentiment that just cracks me up.  This is the perfect set for teenagers.




 ***************************************************
Hope you enjoyed my card parade today, was fun to create some cards using the same papers, size, and stamps.
