FTL9- Take Two

Happy Friday! 

By this time, I should be almost at my destination in Barcelona. It's been planned for months, and it's finally here! I've always wanted to see Europe and my husband and I decided to book a Mediterranean Cruise for our honeymoon! 

But enough about that, onto this week's sketch!

This card is meant to not be the standard 4.25x5.5 size. I made mine 3.75x6. I've still been on a bit of a patterned paper kick. I went through my Doodlebug Designs stash and found this adorable cherry paper. I selected coordinating colours and stamps and got to work!

Stamps: Scent-imentals
Ink: Pure Poppy, New Leaf, Black
Paper: Doodlebug Designs Fruit Stand, Pool Party, Pure poppy, White
Accessories, etc.: Limitless Layers-Circle, Ribbon

Stamps: Life is Beautiful, Inside & Out: Birthday
Paper: Soft Stone, White, Classic Kraft, Stampin' Up! Paper
Accessories, etc: Circle nestablities, grosgrain ribbon, scalloped edge punch

FTL6- Take Two

Hello! Here's the 6th sketch! I like this one because you can use basic paper, patterned paper, or stamp your own patterned paper.

Here's my take on the sketch!
I was in the mood for something cheerful. I decided to go through my stash and saw that I had so many different yellow papers, so I thought it'd be nice to use them all together.

I stamped the two sized leafy sprigs in Versamark on each square and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I attached the yellow squares onto some brown card stock and then placed that onto a cream card base.

Stamps: Spring Blooms, Fresh Baked
Ink: Versamark, Dark Chocolate
Paper: More Mustard, Summer Sun, Crushed Curry, Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold, Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate
Accessories, etc.: Corner Rounder

FTL5- Take Two!

Happy Friday!

Back with another look back at sketch #5.

I still think this is one of my favorites! There's something I find so visually satisfying about using images that push outside a box image.

Anyway, here's my take on it! Pulled out WPlus9's Whole Lotta Happy and made a fun balloon bouquet atop a happy background!

I truly love this stamp set from Wplus9! 
Stamps: Whole Lotta Happy
Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, Rich Razzleberry, Limeade Ice, Black
Paper: White, Aqua Mist, Black
Other: Pop dots, black sharpie

On a few other notes- I am so looking forward to returning to taking pics outside on my balcony! The days are finally long enough to start doing that, and the weather is being mostly agreeable. We had some snow the last few days, but I think we're almost out of that winter stretch!!

Also, I know this and this have been out for a while, but I just love them! Unfortunately they aren't in my stash yet- on a bit of a spending freeze. But how fun would this sketch be with the sun peaking over the stitched frame and a few clouds!

As always, if you play along, please leave a link in the comments!
