Sketch Challenge

 I recently joined a new Facebook group started by one of my design team sisters where she has posted a sketch challenge. Since I took yesterday off work on a vacay day, I decided to create the below card to meet the challenge:

Love that beautiful paper from the Mystical Winter collection and, of course, the pretty flowers (that are colored with a combination of two distress inks - Weathered Wood and Faded Jeans. The blooming branches leaves is colored with Hickory Smoke, and I added some White Craft Drops. I also added some Faded Jeans Distress Oxide to the stitched circle that also has a bit of gesso through one of the ECD stencils that was part of the Summer Journal Special.  All of the ECD supplies are linked up below. Thanks for checking out my card :)

Craftily yours, Karen

Alcohol Ink Cards

 Today, I'm highlighting some cards I made using alcohol inks over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog

Eek, so fun and I love how these cards turned out. The supplies are listed below and more pics can be found on the ECD blog. The flower one is being used as inspiration for the Crazy4Challenges post this week which is all about florals.

Slimline Fun

 Created two slimline cards recently with supplies from Elizabeth Craft Designs

First, this adorable card using the Monkey die.  How cute!  It follows a sketch over at Crazy4Challenges this week.  Join us!

And then this tri-fold slimline card created using the Parrot die!

Who says parrots can't be pink and orange?!! All of the patterned paper used in these creations is from Dare 2B Artzy. The rest of details are available on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog.

Woof You!

 I love dogs more than humans!  Anyone else with me?  Today, at Elizabeth Craft Designs, my design team friends and I are creating Valentine's cards, and I figured this doggie one would be good to enter into the mix!

The paper is from an older ModaScrap paper; sorry it doesn't look like it's available anymore. The rest of my supplies from ECD are linked up below.

Craftily yours,  Karen

Princess and Fairy

 Just before the holidays, Joset released the Once Upon a Time Collection. Today, I decided to use these dies again and created these two cards using the Princess and Fairy 1 dies.

Aren't they fun?!  Full details can be found today over on the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog!  Thanks for stopping by! I also submitted the Fairy 1 card to the Crazy4Challenges as inspiration. This week's challenge is to use a weather element in the card.

Craftily yours, Karen
