ICS #16

Oooh, I had fun making this card. I like fussy cutting a lot, and I LOVE BG's Marrakech line. And I can never go wrong with Dawn's sketches over at Inspirational Card Sketches. Here's my take on this week's sketch #16.

Funky Flowers

Back in April I took a couple classes with Wendy Vecchi, an AWESOME artist. She has her own line of stamps, Studio 490, and designs for Maya Road, Tim Holtz and is a Ranger certified educator! I love her work and since I took the classes, I have tried to practice what I learned. I'm no where near the creative goddess Wendy is, but I'm sure having fun exploring the techniques I learned from her.

My first projects that I did on my own and not at her class was to make 5 ATC's using the funky flower techniques I learned from Wendy. Of course, I did not yet own any Studio490 stamps and I had to use the scraps of grungeboard and grungepaper left over from her class, but I still did them! I also used Tim Holtz Fragments, which Wendy also taught us about. These ATC cards were made for a swap over at Scrapbook Dreamer.

Just tonight I made a birthday card for a DT Call over at Inspirational Card Sketches. I love the flowers I made but I'm still not sure about the card as a whole, but hey, it's all about the journey of learning right? :) Anyway, someone is getting a big fat birthday card in the mail sometime soon. LOL

I have more projects in mind! So I hope to be posting them soon.

ICS #15 and a Mom layout

Well here's my sketch for Dawn's Inspirational Card Sketches, #15. AWESOME sketch, loved working with it.

I love making cards with scraps.

And since I am the Guest Design Team member over at Scrapbook Dreamer, I needed to do a layout for my challenge over there. I'd challenged everyone to do a heritage layout, and this is my example. Prior to this challenge, I'd never scrapped pictures older than myself. and actually this photo was scanned and printed off for this LO as I wanted a bigger photo than the original. Papers are DCWV, pearl bling is Prima, ribbon flowers are Maya Road. My mom wasn't too keen on the photo when I asked her to date it for me. haha! I hope she likes what I did with it!
