FTL108 I Stink I Love You!

I like making circle cards but found it hard tto get the sentiment cut just right. 
Supplies: Stamps - Mark's Finest Papers; Ink - Versafine Onyx Black; Paper - PaperTrey, Jenny Bowlin, SEI; Misc - Nestabilities


I decided to take a round approach to the sketch this week. It's been a long time since I posted a circle card. Here's my take on the sketch. The largest circle dies I have are about 4 inches and that size seemed perfect for making a baby card. I also wanted to use a larger sentiment, and this one fit the bill! Supplies:
  • Stamps: Bitty Baby Blessings, Baby Button Bits
  • Paper: Harvest Gold, Dark Chocolate, White, Lemon Tart
  • Ink: Rich Cocoa
  • Accessories, etc.: Copics, Swiss Dot embossing folder

My first attempt at this sketch was done from memory, and it didn't come close enough, so it gave me an excuse to try again, lol!  So here's the REAL sample. 

Have a great day!

Good evening! I'm on the early shift this week, so that means another early posting of the sketch! It's funny how I find some sketches more inspiring than others, even if I'm the one that's sketched them! I quite enjoyed this one, and I hope you do too! With all the fun tree images available, I decided to use one from PTI's Father Knows Best. I chose my colour palette, then filled in the leaves with those colours. Supplies:
  • Stamps: Father Knows Best, Autumn Abundance
  • Paper: Kraft, Summer Sunrise Bitty Box Basics, Pumpkin Pie, Terracotta Tile, White
  • Ink: Rich Cocoa
  • Accessories, etc.: Copic markers, Scallop die
  • Kraft card base- 4.25x5.5
  • White Panel: 4.25x3.25
  • Patterned Paper: 3.25x.75
