FTL1- Take Two!

Hello all!

After a bit of an unplanned hiatus, we are back!

Just a bit of background information before we get on to the sketch- I started the blog back in May 2008. I had quite a different vision for it, I was hoping to cycle between clean and simple sketches, techniques, tips, and products. However, the blog quickly turned into a sketch blog. We've completed over 300 sketches over 7 years! Since the blog started, we as stampers have evolved and so has this industry. So with that in mind, we are going to start back at the beginning!

Here is the very first sketch! Fall-to Layout #1, the one that started it all!


Here's my card! I decided to use a fun summery colour combination. I always find myself drifting towards these types of colour combinations at this point in winter!


Supplies:
Stamps: Beautiful Blooms II, Up Up & Away
Ink: Hawaiian Shores, Limeade Ice, Harvest Gold, Berry Sorbet, Fresh Snow
Paper: White, Smokey Shadow
Accessories, etc.: Swiss Dot Black Organdy Ribbon

If you play along, please leave a link in a comment!

You're back! Yay! I love your sketches and I think a refresh with new products is a brilliant idea. I hope to enter some challenges sometimes, but I do use your sketches all the time.

Well, I'm late to the party, but so happy to hear that you are back and starting up again! I had you in my challenges tab on my blog and just took you off finally, but something made me come and double-check. Now I will happily go put you back on and I'll play just as soon as I can!! Thank you for all the cool sketches!! Hugs, Darnell

Lovely CAS card. I like the bold blossoms mixed with the geometrical layout and grey and white.

I love your sketches :) I've been meaning to go back and make cards for them as you've been revisiting the older sketches and I finally got to one today:
