Just cricket

A quick card for the Totally Papercrafts 'one for the boys' challenge.

Background and topper are Kanban, not sure about the sentiment. Matted on to black mirror card.

I've taken the colour scheme from Birthday sundaes 19: photo inspiration:

Photo taken at an angle because of super reflection on the sentiment mirror card (if I'd taken it head on you'd have seen me with the camera!).

Wish you were here

Nearly a couple of years ago (gosh, how time flies) I made some ATCs for a swap on BF forum and made one or two extras - you can see the original post here. I used two rubbadubbadoo stamps, masking one behind the other and coloured with copics, with just a few squiggles of Sakura pen on the sand:

So I've used one of these on my card, with flittered DCWV papers.

This is for:

Daring cardmakers: wish you were here
Paper sundaes 79: beachy or summer
Craft room: summer holidays
Divas by design 7: summer is here
For fun: ah the sun of it all - sand/beach

Baking gingerbread cookies

For this card I've used the sketch for Card Patterns 125:

I've used a Marjorie Ramsay digital image of a girl baker. I used a gingerbread cookie image from Microsoft publisher, copying it a few times to join up and make a line of them. Scalloped edges were done on my rotatrim, edged with copic pale blue and a piece of sticky ribbon added. The bright yellow card blank is 7 x 5.

Always and forever yellow roses

The title comes from the Kanban supplies I've used for the card, adding a piece of Craftworks vintage rose spotted paper across the bottom. The card blank is actually lemon irl - not sure why it looks green on the photo - I took the photo outside - oh well!

AiFactory GD made by me embellishments

This is my last card as Guest Designer on AiFactory - I've really enjoyed the privilege of joining the team for the month of July. Today's challenge 'hand made by me' is to make your own embellishments, so I cut varying sizes of scalloped circles on my cricut, inked them with Victorian velvet DI and scrunched before putting together and popping a button each of them. The main background paper is My Mind's Eye, the paper with roses and the one the flowers were cut from are Pink Petticoat vintage rose and the pink and white flower strip is from Pink Petticoat wild blossoms. The lovely ballerina digi was supplied by AiFactory - I coloured her with copics. 'Home made flowers' is also the challenge today for Cynthia's Rainbow Lady 163.

For this card I used the sketch for Inkspirations 79:

Colours are for City crafter 67: vintage garden:
