MTTC challenge blog Office Supply Theme for 16 April 2021

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart wanted to go crazy with MTTC's new theme! I didn't want to use an office supply like an embellishment but to really build most of the card cover with office/stationery supplies. Creative thoughts were better than the execution, however....see what you all think.

My Time To Craft's # theme challenge will start early on Friday, April 16, 2021 and will last a fortnight. 

 CARD #1: Today's Plan Birthday card=

http://mytimetocraftchallenge.blogspot.com/2021/04/challenge-455-use-stationery.html



Creative design process included these supplies found in or on my desk or table used for crafting=

1. regular and jumbo sized paper clips

2. two types of memo notes--yellow and sage green lined sticky notes and white lined memo page ripped from the memo pad

3. micro-thin washi tapes used as little banner flags on the jumbo clips

4. three colors of highlighters were used to create a border on the white memo paper

5. four colors of ink pens to write the birthday sentiment

6. three colors of permanent markers were used to create a dotted border on the card bases

7. a planner stencil sheet with different words or phrases had the 'today's plan' that I thought went well with the idea of a birthday celebration

Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart is excited this week to be able to showcase 2 digital images made by Createful Heart Designs. Without further ado...

Design Team Inspiration Card #1 with Image #1 Water Lilies with Dragonflies

Zibbet store link= https://marketplace.zibbet.com/createful-heart-design/water-lilies-with-dragonflies-digital-stamp-image


Note: the dot print paper is from The Paper Studio/Hobby Lobby; colored pencils were used for the majority of coloring for the digital image with a teeny bit of black marker dots for the dragonflies' eyes and a bit of yellow for the stamens on the largest waterlily; such a scene of serenity when I look at the image and the colors and prints I added  to surround it!

My Time To Craft Christmas no 7 with Snow People theme Christmas cards

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart decided to add ragged edging to my papers and cardstocks for my creative flair on this Christmas card. At MTTCC challenge blog, Shell (owner) is asking that #7 challenge has a "snow people" theme. This Snowman and/or Snow lady challenge starts early on Friday, April 9, 2021

My "snow people" are glossy enamel kind of stick-ons that have been in my Christmas embellishments container for a couple of years I'm guessing. It has been way past time to use them. The snowflake patterned paper is computer paper stationery so it's been used on several Christmas cards in 2019 and 2020. The package started with 50 sheets and I've only consumed maybe 5...sigh...Another forgotten dusty supply was stencil sheet from a planner pack kit. Size-wise the snowflake, letters, and numbers worked well for a sentiment kind of accent on this Christmas card.
