OWH MWT: Thank You!

 Some quick cards I recently made using some more odds and ends. 

The middle card was inspired by by a tutorial that can be found here:  It kinda reminds me of the sunburst card fronts.  I took some liberties with the paper widths partly to add some extra interest but also save a little time.

OWH Sketch #123 and Bonus

 Just a quick post of the two cards I made for yesterday's challenges.  I still have not made it through the hop; way too many other things to do.  Still whittling down the scrap pile a little.  I did buy some uber yummy patriotic papers that I cannot wait to cut into; maybe next weekend?

OWH Memorial Day Sketch Bloghop

I actually made two Any Hero cards for the hop, both using only paper from my scrap pile.  I really wanted to pick a sketch that I have not made yet, as I would like to try them all this year so I picked #45.  I used the new Paper Smooches set.  I colored my twine on both using a technique that can be found on Nancy's blog here:  The second card is not a sketch card, but I wanted to show you the twine in white.  I love that you can create your own "baker's twine" using any color(s) so cheaply.  I have blog candy, see the blog candy post if you are interested.  Happy hopping!!!

OWH MWT: I Love You

I was lucky enough to have a card already made that met the challenge and I wanted to share.  The typewriter image had been in my "get it used" pile.  Cannot wait to hop this weekend!

Blog Hop Sneak Peek

OWH Sketch #122

Good Morning!  I took a peek at Barb's card...she had a hard time finding a small stamp.  I had a hard time with how to fill it since I wanted to use that fat old "grumpy" owl and sentiment.  I did only use paper scraps...are you tired of me saying that?  It is inspiring to me especially since I am not adding to it.  Anyway I am taking my DH out for breakfast so I gotta run!

OWH Sketch #121

I looove this sketch!  However, after seeing some other cards with great diecut shapes, I decided that I would like this card better with a different shape with the sentiment.  Only scraps were used to make the front...and this is a great sketch for I am going to try to make a few more cards using it.

OWH MWT: Patriotic

Still on my scrap wrangling kick!  Stamps used Hero Arts and Paper Smooches.  I did curve the banners so it would be kinda like the flag stripes waving in the wind.  I may try this card again with a mat behind the base.  Have a GREAT day!

#6:  Use a Diecut
Still using only scrap paper to make cards!  Finally finished the last VCMP card this evening.  The "sister cards" were made using sketches 22 & 23, so I can check them off my list.   I did treat myself to the new Paper Smooches OWH stamp set.  Ordered it Friday and got it today...what service!!!

#9:  Patrotic "Sister Cards"

#10:  Owls

Be A Rebel VCMP Day 1...

#1:  A card for a child using paper piecing!

 All cards were made with scrap paper...even the Garfield paper (which I really was hoarding).  The cookie card turned out pretty darn good.  I have the best darn Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and the card would go perfect with them.  On to the rest of the challenges!

#2:  "Use Something You've Been Hoarding."

#3: Food as your focal image.

#4:  Use bright colors.

#5:  ODBD Use 5 elements.

OWH Sketch #120

Yesterday was the kickoff (for me) of garage sales in our I am a little behind on the Be A Rebel VCMP.  I did mange to find a house mouse stamp so I will be inking that up sometime in the future.

This weekend is devoted to making cards out of only scraps!  So I dug into my pile and came up with this card.  The bird in a cage was an afterthought because I thought the card needed something else.  Nice sketch.  On to the challenges and the wrangling!!!

OWH MWT: Flowers!

The first card is my homework for my Copics Class.  We colored the image in class and the teacher challenged us to use it in a project.  I fussycut it out at home (ended up cutting off the feet so I get in between the legs) and made this card.  I cannot wait to share with the class.

The second card I made for today's challenge and was inspired by my niece and Sugarland; I was going for countrified summer floral. 

The third card is a scrap card that I made recently after the Scrap Wrangler video.  No, I still have not wrangled any scraps because I have a few other stuff to wrangle first!
