Try Stamping on Tuesday Sketches

 I'm still playing with Daily Grind papers from Catherine Pooler and I decided to use them on current sketches from Try Stampin' On Tuesday. For both cards I used the same stamp set and similar color palette. Mugs are colored with alcohol markers.

Catherine Pooler Daily Grind - playing with sketches

I got a new 6x6 paper pad to play with - it's called Daily Grind by Catherine Pooler. I also got a matching stamp set and I'm having a lot of fun with it. The papers are fun and I LOVE the sentiments.
So I made a couple cards using different sketches. Cup images are colored with alcohol markers. You can expect more on the same theme in few days :)

40 cards using CTMH Chelsea Garden Paper Pack

 Couple years ago I bought Chelsea Garden 12x12 paper pack from Close To My Heart together with matching cardstock. I used some of it during the previous years, but I still had a lot of it left and I managed to make 40 cards. Papers were mostly light blue, light green and gray so perfect for spring cards
My previous 2 posts showed some cards I made and here are details from some more:

Here is a bunch of Easter cards I made with digi from Lili of the Valley

Several more Easter ones with sparkly die cuts
Cuttlebug Mania - Use a Bunny

than I got tired of Easter cards so I made a few flowery ones with Altenew's Positive Vibes
Fab 'n' Funky -Flowers

and some more fairy ones - digi from LOTV

Fairy and The Unicorn - Anything Fantasy

Violets are from Flourishes, middle image is a 3D decoupage image and the last one is another pre-colored digi from LOTV

Sentiment Cards for Try It On Tuesday

 Still working on Chelsea Garden paper pack from CTMH and here are some cards I made for the current Try It On Tuesday challenge.


Challenge was to use the sketch and/or use large sentiments. I did both. The little butterflies are made with an old Stampin Up die.

LOTV Easter Bunny Cards

 I need to make a bunch of Easter cards to mail ASAP so I used precolored LOTV digi stamps. I'm also working on using up an older paper collection from CTMH called Chelsea Garden



So with the same image I used different sketches and sentiments. I kept them pretty flat and mailable, no extra embellishments.

Friends are Like Seashells

I'm still working on Monterey Bay paper pack from PaperPlay and I decided to make some gender neutral cards with the new Friends are like Seashells stamp set from Stampin Up. I love the sentiments from this set and since I didn't want the cards to be too feminine I restrained from sparkly embellishments and only used some clear Nuvo drops.
First one is using the current sketch from The Paper Players

 I'm also entering it in Beyond The Blue - Rustic Wood background and

25 cards from a 6x6 paper pack

First 6x6 paper pack of 2021 used up - yay! I'm on the right track. This one was called Rurality and I got it from Aliexpress. The quality was pretty good, only downside was that I.m more used to double sided paper and this one was single sided. But I liked the colors so I thought it would be a nice change after all the Christmas cards I made in December. It had no cut aparts so I used a variety of images and stamps.

And here are some detailed views - all images were colored with alcohol markers and  sentiments used are from my stash.
