Give Thanks At Incy Wincy

 Good morning time for a new challenge at Incy Wincy and this weeks challenge is Give Thanks and we are sponsored by Delicious Doodles.
I have used this fab frame image from our sponsor this one is called Butterfly Border. I have added a simple thank you sentiment to the middle of the frame and coloured the butterflies and the frame with my promarkers. I printed an extra set of butterflies and flowers so I could give my card some depth. I have kept my card really simple this week just layering the image onto some purple card. I added some stickles to the butterflies and flowers and dotted a few gems around.

Male birthday cards


Morning I've got some more catch up cards for you today, these are some male birthday cards I made for the residents at a local home who order birthday cards from me. The top one is from a Kanban stamp that I have used before with my distress inks this time I decides to go for a monochrome look and stamped it in black ink onto cream, the anchor and the sea gull are more stamps from the same set. The paper is from MME oliver pad I think.

Another simple card this time I have used a digi stamp from Delisious Doodles called Coming Home I have very lightly added some colour to the image with my promarkers and then simply mounted the image on to Kraft card and patterned and added some card candy and a sentiment.

Sketch time at Incy Wincy


Good morning time for another challenge at Incy Wincy. This weeks challenge is a sketch
 
and we are sponsored by Kenny K. I have used this fab stamp called Dirt Bike Mike, which I coloured with my pro markers. The papers are some left over bits of an Echo Park pad, the sheets that I didn't really like lol but I think they look fab put together on this card. The border is cut with my Martha Stewart zig zag punch and I used my spiky circle die to cut the mat around the image. The sentiment I made in Microsoft word and cut out.

This morning todays post is for a series which started last month over on the S J Crafts Blog called Six on the Sixth the idea is to encourage ourselves, and you, to get those pesky Christmas cards made in advance. Each month from now until December, on the 6th of the month, there will be a post filled with Christmas card inspiration for you! You will be able to link up your own cards at the end of the post, you can do this anytime throughout the month, and we'll come and take a look to get more inspiration from you! My teamie Jennifer suggests putting a kit together to make it quicker to make your cards here's my attempt at putting a kit together ( not something I would normally do as I craft with all my stuff around me) my kit consisted of MME 6x6 Mistletoe Magic, some sheets of cardstock and some Christmas stamps. To this I then added as I was going along Diamond, Gold & Silver Stickles, scalloped lace border punch, zig zag border punch, tag punch, gems, ribbon, Memento black ink pad , promarkers , various spellbinder dies and six scalloped 6 x 6 square card blanks.


Here's the six cards I made.

Playing with my distress inks


Here's a quick card I made a while ago using my distress inks I used Dusty Concord. I stamped the image 3 times without re inking the stamp. I did the centre swirl first and then the two out swirls to give a subtle effect. Then I simply added some gems and some punched butterflies to it. The sentiment is from Craftwork cards coloured with the distress ink and the ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.
