The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge May 20

Morning Peeps.  Wednesday means sketch challenge at The Outlawz.  I love to use sketches in making my cards.  I don't always stick to the sketch, but I start with it as my inspiration.  The sponsor this month is Deedee's Digis.  I have used an image from the Oh Hoppy Day collection for my card.  It includes sentiments for new baby, birthday, Christmas and everything.  Check out the store if you haven't already.

As you can see, I flipped the sketch horizontally.  I wanted Momma Kangaroo looking into the card, not out of it.   I used Bazzill textured cardstock for the base and the square behind the image. The designer paper is Echo Park 6x6 Bundle of Joy.  The buttons are from American Crafts and the ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I cut the shape behind the Kangaroo with my Cameo.  I also used the Cameo to print and cut the pre-colored image.

Deedee's Digis May Progressive Challenge

It's May and time for the progressive challenge at Deedee's Digis.  The digi set she provided for this challenge is called "Dad Get a Day Off."  I'm getting a jump on Father's Day, but this could even be a birthday card for a guy.  I used the pre-colored images and printed them and cut them with my Cameo.  I popped the dog and slipper with foam tape.  The bling is from Want2Scrap and I colored it with Copics to make it look more masculine.  The cardstock is from Recollections.

The Outlawz Wednesday Sketch Challenge May 6

Hi Peeps!  It's the beginning of May and time for a new sketch challenge at The Outlawz.  It's also the month when Trina's baby boy is due.  This month, the DT cards will be in keeping with a new baby.  Our gracious sponsor is Deedee's Digis who has supplied us with the cutest baby images.  I've said it before and I'll say it again - I love Deedee's Digis."  For my card this week, I'm using "Chance of Showers."

I used Echo Park Bundle of Joy cardstock for my card and added a little Stampin' Up, American Crafts  and Recollections cardstock.  As usual, I printed and cut the images and sentiment with my Cameo.  The image was already precolored, so I didn't have to do it.  I cut the edging for the gold strips with a Fiskars punch.
