Swap Bot Spring Skinny Cottage Card

Spring Skinny Card for swap bot

Here is my inspiration card for the Crafty Bloggers Network this week, the digital stamp is by our Sponsor Rick St Dennis. The card itself is for a swap over at Swap Bot which called for a spring skinny card, this is a 3″ by 5″ card decorated how you like to fit in with a spring theme.

Bright Owl Zendala Dare 32

It has been a while since I blogged one of my Swap Bot swaps so I thought I would share this Mandala I have created for December’s swap. I found another challenge blog for Zentangle called The Bright Owl Zendala Dare. The mandala template is Number 32 and I had great fun with it, I used some linnen effect paper to add a little interest and texture and I am really pleased with how it turned out.

What a Week!

Zentangle Piano Keys

This week has been one of those hectic weeks where I seem to be running around everywhere and not seeming to get very much done! I did however post a parcel of 10 card samples off on Wednesday (more about those next week ;). I heard that my Piano Keys ATC that I made for a swap has arrived safely so here it is:

ATC Flower Series – Irises

Iris ATC

Here is an ATC I created for the above series over at Swap Bot, the iris came from my Next Big Thing CD and I coloured it with Copics. I cut 2 nestie shapes and stuck the cut out Iris onto the first oval. The backing paper came from a digital collection designed by myself and friends.

Colourful Boofle

Here is the 3rd ATC by Grant for his swap. The image is a free stamp from the Docrafts magazine this month called Boofle which Grant decided to colour with the new paints I had bought him. The sticker came from Hobbycraft – its one of those scratch off ones that reveals the rainbow colours underneath the black. He then finished the whole thing off with some Papermania stars in the corners.

Book Page ATC

Another swap over at Swap Bot, this time for an ATC featuring a book page somewhere on it. I just love this quote by Mark Twain and managed to find it on a tag. A while back someone sent me a couple of snippets from a French-English dictionary so that came in handy.

My first Skinny Card

I had never heard of these before I joined Swap Bot, they are quite fun to do as they give you a little bit more room than an ATC as they are 3″ x 5″

I made mine using the new Memory Box Die I bought recently and some Echo Park paper I had left over from another project.

Coloured Owl Series ATCs

Purple Owl Artist Trading Card

Here we have an ATC for the Coloured Owl Series – Purple over at Swap Bot, the owls were a free digital image from the Lost in Paper Scraps blog which I tangled and coloured. The background was sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer mist (always seem to end up covered in this when I use it!)

ATC Flower Series – Poppies

Flower Series Poppies

Another series of artist trading cards over at Swap Bot is one of flowers, this is a card I have just sent off:

Flower Series Poppies

The poppies were coloured with copic ciao and then cut out and decoupaged. The paper came from a free paper pack I got with a magazine.

International Women’s Day Postcard

March 8 is International Women’s Day, and in many countries it is customary to exchange yellow flowers on that date. So, for this swap, we have to send each of our 3 partners a postcard which somehow incorporates a yellow flower.

I am really pleased with the way my postcard turned out, I have used a digi stamp from Just Inklined and coloured it with copics and it is on a digi background so that it is flat. (apologies for the slightly blurred photo – it’s a bit dull here today)
