Tea Party Hello - Sketch Challenge



Happy Monday! It's time for another Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge! Here is my sample for this week:


Here is this week's sketch:


What a fun sketch! I created a color combination that I would have never thought about:





I knew that I wanted to color my stamp image with markers and that I wanted to use Strawberry Slush for my flowers. I can never find a marker from the 2013-2015 In-Color collection in my marker stash when I want one and then I think to myself "did I really not purchase the marker set"? So I resorted to the next closest color...Rose Red! 

Have you tried the new Venetian Crochet Trim? I am IN LOVE!!! I was sad when the 5/8" inch crochet trim retired from the last catalog. It was my go to ribbon for that certain delicate or classic look. I'm not much for vintage but this new crochet trim is GORGEOUS!!! It is even more delicate and I love the detail in the trim. I can see myself using this ribbon in many more projects!

Here are some card details:
  • card base is Baked Brown Sugar (standard A2 size 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" scored in the middle at 4-1/4")
  • Patterned DSP is from All Abloom Paper Stack and is cut 1-3/4" x 5-1/2". I applied Tombow Glue to the back of DSP and applied to card base, but tucked 6" of the Venetian Crochet Trim under the DSP before fulling adhering and trimmed the edges of 3/8" ribbon (trim) with my favorite ribbon scissors (aka Craft Scissors)!
  • Very Vanilla (4" x 2-3/4") and Rose Red (3-3/4" x 2-1/2") with Perfect Polka Dots embossing.
  • I colored the image from Tea Party with Rose Red, Garden Green, and Smoky Slate markers. I huffed on the rubber before stamping to remoisten the ink then cut with the Chalk Talk Framelit Dies.
  • Greeting is from Perfect Pennants inked in Garden Green and cut with Banners Framelits as well as an extra pennant in Garden Green to shadow behind the greeting. I adhered the image and pennants with dimensionals (leftover from a Paper Pumpkin kit!!)

Wetlands Sketch Challenge

Happy Monday! It's time for another Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge! Here is my sample for this week:



Check out this week's sketch:



I was trying to create a birthday card that could be created for a woman or a man. Unfortunately, the picture looks to be more pink/blue - actually it's Crisp Cantaloupe and Lost Lagoon/Night of Navy - which look better together in real life than I imagined!

Flower Pot Designer Series Paper


Card details:

  • Base of card is Crisp cantaloupe
  • Layer of Flower Pot DSP 
  • Color the goose with a Soft Suede marker and the grass with an Old Olive marker
  • Use Circle Framelit Dies to cut out image from Whisper White and Crisp Cantaloupe card stock
  • The greeting is stamped with the Silver Metallic Encore Ink onto Night of Navy card stock and punched out with a 1-3/8" punch
  • Cut a strip of ribbon a little longer than the length of the card and adhere with glue dots
    • One trick that I like to use when making a faux bow: Tie a piece of twine around a section of the ribbon where the bow is going to be adhered. Trim loose ends. When bow is attached it looks like you actually tied it on!
  • Tie a bow and adhere to top of ribbon with glue dots or Tombow Multipurpose Glue

Your Turn!

Something for Baby Sketch Challenge




Happy Monday! It's time for another Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge! Here is my sample for this week:


Here is the sketch:


What a sweet sketch - right? So different from last week!! I have been patiently waiting to use my Something for Baby stamp set that I purchased 2 months ago and finally decided to give it a try this week!



I tried to create a rainbow-type effect.....can you spot my errors? I stamped the onesie in Pool Party and cut it out with the coordinating framelits dies! 



I started with my green hearts and worked to the left and then stamped my purple hearts and moved to the right keeping in mind where I was placing my onesie. My hearts were more crooked than I planned so I popped up the onesie and tilted it to the side to offset some of the crookedness!

I also took my small heart punch from the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack and punched out one of the hearts from the Gold Fancy Designer Vellum Foil and adhered it to the front of the onesie for a cute embellishment! The sentiment is from the Baby, We've Grown stamp set. I popped the entire whisper white panel on top of the Pool Party card stock base.


I even did a little to the inside of the card!
