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

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!
