Ninety Six!

Time for another sketch! I've been apparently on a bit of a vertical orientation rut. I'll try to do something different next week! Here's the sketch. The patterned piece is 4x3.25. I had this stamped lime paper for quite some time. I did some rock'n'roll stamping using Spring Moss and Ripe Avocado, then went around the rind with lime stickles. The finishing touch was to add in some tiny dots in the remaining white space. I struggled with a sentiment for the card. That many limes just didn't say "birthday" to me, so I finally went with a just because. When all else fails, right!

Supplies: Stamps: Fruitful, Round and Round Ink: Black, Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado Paper: Spring Moss, Black, White Accessories, etc.: lime stickles

FTL95 From Me to You

Here is my card for the FTL95.  I designed the card around the 3D daisy stickers that I purchased at Archivers.
Supplies: Stamps - PaperTrey Everyday Button Bits; Ink - Versafine Onyx Black; Paper - DCWV; Misc - K&Co Daisy Sticker, Nestability, KaiserCraft Rhinestones.


Good Morning! I'm back with this week's sketch. If you happened to download the .pdf I put up the other day, you got a sneak peek at the sketch.

Here's my take on it, I really like this group of colours and can't seem to stop making cards with them! The card is quite basic. I die cut the flower, stamped it, then masked it so I could have dots in the center only.

Supplies: Stamps: Beautiful Blooms II, Polka Dot Basics II, Birthday Basics Ink: Hawaiian Shores, Real Red, True Black, Kiwi Kiss Paper: Hawaiian Shores, Kiwi Kiss, True Black, White Accessories, etc.: Ribbon, blooms die, scallop punch
