Perfect Pennants Sketch Challenge


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


Another card with a purpose! I love using Mary Jo's sketches to make cards that I will actually be sending to friends and family. This week's card will be going out to a friend who just had surgery last week and is finally home recovering. I hope this card puts a little sunshine in her day!

I started with the Perfect Pennants Stamp Set:


I thought about making a standard A2 card but really liked the design - I think it's because I love symmetry. I opted to make a 4-1/4" square card so that I can still send it in a standard size envelope.

I chose the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack using  Hello Honey, Blue Lagoon, and Blackberry Bliss as the color scheme:


Here are some other card details:

  • card base is Hello Honey - 4-14" square
  • Silver ribbon is glued to card front with Tombow "green" glue
  • Background DSP is cut at 3" square and mounted on 3-1/8" Lost Lagoon
  • Diagonal striped DSP is cut at 1-1/4" x 4-1/4"
  • Greeting is stamped with Lost Lagoon ink pad and then I used a Blackberry Bliss marker to color over the Lost Lagoon ink to make the work "good" stand out from the rest of the sentiment. 
  • I punched out greeting with 2-1/2" circle punch and mounted with dimensionals
  • I made a little bow from the silver ribbon and attached it with mini glue dots - DONE!

We would love to see what you can create using this sketch!

Wetlands Confetti - 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 wanted to step away from the holidays for a moment and make a card for my Aunt Rachel. She has been in and out the hospital and hasn't been doing well. Here are the card details:
  • Colors were taken from my DSP (as always) - Tangelo Twist, Basic Gray, Pistachio Pudding, and Crushed Curry
  • Card base is Tangelo Twist
  • Confetti DSP is matted with Basic Gray card stock as well as the Whisper White panel
  • I stamped the goose with Basic Gray, the plant with Crushed Curry, and the grass with Mossy Meadow
  • The greeting is from the hostess set Hello There. I stamped the greeting with Tangelo Twist and the border was stamped with Basic Gray on Pistachio Pudding card stock. I used 1-3/8" and 1-3/4" circle punches.
  • I added 3 pearls at the top right edge

Ornamental Pine Christmas


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




Here is the sketch:



I finally had a chance to play with this stamp set and I can't wait to make more cards with it. I think the pine cone and branch will be great to use even past Christmas!




I took my color cues from the All Is Calm DSP - Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon, and Pear Pizzazz. I started with a neutral Soft Suede card stock and used a 2-1/2" x 4-1/2" piece of All Is Calm DSP. I realized that out of the entire pack of paper, this is the only pattern of paper I seem to use. It must be my favorite pattern!



I also took a 2-1/2" x 4-1/2" piece of Soft Sky card stock and embossed with Lucky Stars embossing folder and Lost Lagoon ink. I LIGHTLY tapped the ink pad on the inside front flap of the embossing folder with my ink pad. I just wanted to get ink on the design that was protruding from the embossing folder and not ink the entire background. (Between you and me - I did get a little ink in places I didn't want but it's mostly hiding behind the main image.)



For the main image, I inked the pine cone with Pear Pizzazz ink and used an Early Espresso marker to color the stem before stamping. I stamped the greeting with Lost Lagoon ink. I stamped the pine cone with Early Espresso ink onto Soft Suede card stock and cut out the pine cone. The pine cone and branch are adhered with dimensionals. I tied some silver bakers twine around the card stock panel for a little extra accent.
