New sketches to start January 2017

Postby LisaW » Mon Jan 02, 2017 5:53 pm

Hi ladies

I would like to start January 2017 with four sketches to start the year and hopefully we can get some new members to join us. As always, just a place to get our creative juices going or in my case give my creativity a much needed jump start.

Just to keep it simple I will not add any extra credits unless they are requested :-D

Happy New Year!

Here is my sketch #4.
I used Unity stamps for the image and sentiment and colored
it with my Copics. Cut out the image with a Gina Marie die
then made shadow layers with my Explore.Image

Bingo miss seeing your cards but I know you are having
trouble with your new printer. Hope you get it sorted out soon

Well, I got it working. But I have been in bed for a couple of days with a bad cold. I even lost my voice.
My honey was very glad :) cause I could not tell him to do the house work. :mad:
I hope to get at least one card done.
Mrs. Whiz thanks for hosting last month, and Merrie thanks for hosting this month.

Binglady...I hope your are feeling tip-top soon.

NanaDonna...Beautiful card. The colors go great together and the embossing enhances the pink panel very nicely.

Great card, love the paper and embossing.
Not sure how to adjust the size. I think it is a Photobucket
setting

Bingolady...what a nice and bright Valentines card. I really liked the paper and the embossing that you used.

NanaDonna...Very nice #1 card.

Are either of you having a problem with Photobucket? I couldn't use it at all for several days and then it was OK....now I'm having trouble again. It's probably just a computer problem as I think we had a power surge and it might have thrown off my settings. Either that or the computer just likes to change the settings on its own. :laughing-lettersrofl: :teasing-tease:

Good morning everyone. I was finally able to get this card through Photobucket, so I am now able to post it here and on my Blog. It is my card #2.

The digi image is by Bloobel, and one which I've had for several months. He's so cute that I can see where he could be often used in the upcoming warmer weather. I've colored him with my Copic Markers and a few touches of a white ink pen and Prisma Pencils.

I've used two OLD punches to make the circles on the bottom part of the card, but I didn't see a name on either of the punches. The Stitched Sun is a Die by Die-namics as is the Scalloped Stitched Rectangle. Both are by My Favorite Things.

The white ribbon and the yellow paper was from my scraps, but the rest of the paper is from a small stack by American Crafts called "Marine." I love this shade of blue.

Thanks for stopping by. Dee
