Wednesday’s Design by Robbie

Monday’s Color Challenge was supposed to be the In Colors that are retiring in August.  Since I was behind and had promised the ATC card I decided to use those colors today.  I also combined it with Julee’s Mojo Monday sketch.  This week’s sketch was so much fun.  If you ever get stuck in designing a card just jump on the internet and check out some of the card sketches you can find.  They really help with the layout which makes the card so much easier to design.

I also decided to use one of the many retiring sets.  There are so many great sets going away.  I am curious to see what they replace them with.  I can’t wait until August to see the new catalog.  How about you?  Don’t forget if you are interested in our catalog dinner you need to get your registration form and fee to Candice or myself.  You will get a delicious dinner, the new catalog, and make 6 cards with some of the new colors and sets.  Hope to see you there it will lots of fun!

Well enough yacking.  Here is the sketch and my card.

Stamps: Bud Basics, So Many Sayings Paper: Blue Bayou, Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi, white Ink: Basic Black, Blue Bayou, Groovy Guava, Wild Wasabi Accessories: Floral Lace Edge Punch (Martha Stewart), Word Window punch, silver cording, Groovy Guava brads, small hole punch, aquapainter, dimensionals

Hope you liked the card.  Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Well yesterday got away from me. I had so much to do and not enough time – you’ve all had those days right? I promise you a card from my Bug ATC. Well here it is. I love the wiggly eyes even if they are crossed! I used some eyelets as I hadn’t used them in a while. I cut a strip of Gable Green and using my scissors made small cuts part of the way down to make my grass.

Stamps: Bugs and Kisses Paper: Basic Black, Gable Green, Green Galore, Only Orange, Pixie Pink, white Ink: Basic Black, Brocade Blue, Green Galore Accessories: Black Fun Flock, black eyelets, wiggly eyes, ribbon (Michael’s), sticky tape, dimensionals, crystal effects, spongeThanks for looking and have a great day!

Worm ATC

I am in a monthly ATC swap and the theme this month we had to use Bold Brights.  I just got some Fun Flock and thought it would be cute to make a fuzzy worm.  While I need to work on getting enough glue down to have the flock stick to it, I think this ATC is really cute.

Stamps: Bugs & Kisses Paper: Basic Black, Green Galore, Only Orange, Pink Passion, white Ink: Brocade Blue, Glue Pad Accessories: Wiggly Eyes, Ribbon (Michael’s), dimensionals

Thanks for looking.  Make sure you check back on Monday to see how I took this ATC and made a card out of it.  Have a great day!

Daffodil Hedgehog ATC

I love participating in swaps.  You get some great ideas.  Since cards take up a lot of space, I will do ATC (Artistic Trading Cards) swaps as you can put 9 in the trading card protectors and store in a notebook.  While looking on Splitcoast I found a Penny Black ATC swap and decided to try and see what I get back.  Here is the one I made.  I love the Penny Black images (especially the hedgehogs) as they are so cute.

Stamps:  Seeing Your Face(Penny Black) Paper: So Saffron, Gable Green, white, yellow check (paper pack from Michael’s) Ink: Basic Black Accessories: Chalk, dew drops, dimensionals

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Wednesday’s Design by Robbie

Well today has been one of those days. I blinked and the day is gone. I had so much to do and I am still not done. I still need to make a birthday card, stamp some images I borrowed, and make 2 ATC cards. I guess I need to quite the chit-chat and get on with it.
You know I love doing Julee’s sketch each week. Well she has another great layout. I decided to combine it with a contest they are having on Splitcoast in the Verve forum. I also needed one more July 4th card so the contest was perfect since you only had to have 1 star on your card somewhere. I used lots of stars as it is not the 4th without lots of fireworks and stars. So here is the sketch and my card. You can’t see it but I traced the fireworks on the background paper with the Spica clear glitter pen.

Stamps: Seeing Stars (Verve), Independence Day Paper: Brocade Blue, Gold Metallic, Real Red, white, DCWV Big Stack (had for several years) Ink: Brocade Blue, Real Red Accessories: Photo Corner – Large Star – Round Tab Punch, gold brads, ribbon (Michael’s), Spica clear glitter pen, sponge, dimensionals, sticky tape

So what do you think? Not a bad card and it was fun to make. Thanks for looking and have a great evening!
