Hello 301

Happy Friday everyone! Heres my take on this weeks sketch!

With this card I did also did heat embossing over the word die like Natasha! Such a fun way to add a little bit more texture to your card! I love the shimmer it gives! Also did some layered stamping getting some extra colours then the inks I used!! 

Hope you all have a great week! I look forward to seeing your creations!


Happy Friday everyone!

Here's this week's sketch!

Here's a photo with slightly more accurate colours!

It's here! Sketch #300!

It's quite a simple sketch. I hope you'll use your large alphabet stamps, word stamps or dies on the card.

Here's my card:

And since 300 seems like a big deal, I had to do something a bit different. I've made a video showing the process. It's only the second time I've made a video (and the first one I made was 4 years ago), so please be kind :)

Stamps: Wet Paint, Polka Dot Basics II
Ink: Summer Sunrise, Lemon Tart, Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Tuxedo Black

FTL299 - Happy Birthday

Hi, everyone! Just popping in to share the card I created using the FTL299 sketch... 

To create my card today, I started by stamping three balloon images from Whimsy Stamps' Happy Everything set, then cutting them out with the coordinating die from the Party Time Balloon Die set.  I then stamped three balloon tails in light gray ink onto a white card base.

Next, I stamped three teal confetti burst images from the Happy Everything set, as well as the birthday sentiment in a darker gray.  The balloons were then attached to the card front using pop dots.  I die cut the happy from lime polka dot patterned paper using the Happy Large Word Die, then adhered it to the card base with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with clear gems.

Have a great one!
