2 Birthday Cards for 2 Bo Bunny card sketch challenges

I’m still trying to learn how to make cards. There. I said it. lol So the way I see it, the only way for me to learn is by making more cards, right? From now on, you’ll be seeing a lot more cards from me. Some will be decent. Others will be…eh…and others, will be down right embarassing, but I have to at least try. LOL Lucky for me, Bo Bunny has Tuesday card challenges on their blog. The posts are filled with gorgeous inspiration that is totally lost on me still…but I’m trying! This post has my entry for both the January sketch which is due Feb 13 and also the Feb sketch which is due Feb 20th.

Here’s my take on the sketch that was posted on February 7th:

Genuine Beauty – dt layout for LCTS sketch #117

This week at Let’s Capture These Sketches, we got to work with JJ’s first sketch for the site and I had a lot of fun with it! I used Pink Paislee’s Vintage Vogue papers and let Madison pick out the bg paper she wanted. 😀 The pp, chipboard stickers, diecuts, spool tops are all from the Vintage Vogue collection. The only item I added was a few bits of twine from the Twinery. Here’s my example for the sketch:

This is the fantastic sketch JJ came up with for this week’s challenge (sketch #117):

Layout and a Card – Bo Bunny Barefoot and Bliss

About a month ago or so I won some of Bo Bunny’s new Barefoot and Bliss papers and their layered chipboard embellies. We’ve never taken the kids to the beach and I don’t have a single beach photo. However on the day we gave Christian his first sponge bath at home, he happened to be wearing a little romper that said “Beach Bum” on it and the colors seemed fairly appropriate, so I decided to use the BB for this layout. There was even a page that reminded me of bubbles, so I fussy cut and punched out some of the circles.

This layout is an example for the Paper Secrets July Sketch challenge. I rotated the sketch to better suit what I had in mind and here’s what I came up with:

Materials:

Bo Bunny Barefoot and Bliss 12×12 cardstock papers
BB Barefoot and Bliss layered chipboard stickers
Pink Paislee alpha stickers

Adhesives:

Helmar adhesive runner
Helmar ZapDots

Then I used the scraps to create a card for my example for the PS July Card Sketch with a twist (the twist is that you must use a border punch). Here’s my take on the sketch:

Materials:

BB Barefoot and Bliss 12×12 cardstock papers
Twine from the Twinery

Adhesives:

Helmar adhesive runner
Helmar 450 Quick Dry

Tool:

Martha Stewart doily lace punch
