Happy Friday!!

Here is this week's sketch. I'm sure it's similar to something I've sketched in the past. The whole "new" thing on this one was having not just a plain scalloped strip. Add some other sort of embellishment to it. I've punched out holes in mine to make it a bit more interesting!

Here's my take:
Card Base: 4-1/4x5-1/2
Red Layer: 3-5/8x4-7/8
White Layer:3-1/2x4-3/4

Stamps: Stylish Sentiments: Birthday
Ink: Bermuda Bay
Paper: Pure Poppy, White, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay
Accessories, etc.: Aqua Mist Felt, Pure Poppy Felt, Button, Baker's Twine, Scalloped Edge Die, Notched Flowers Dies

FTL 242 Oh Hello

Today I decided to finally use the first photopolymer stamp set from SU. And this is my creation for this weeks sketch!!

Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!!


FTL242 Happy Birthday

Here is my take on FTL242.  I have so many ideas for the vertical elements on the right side....The large circles were stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and colored in with SU! markers, using the colors for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge.  The sentiment was stamped with Night of Navy ink.  All images are from PaperTrey.


Good morning!

Ready for another sketch? This one is super simple. I basically punched out several 1 inch circles from Doodlebug Designs Take Note and arranged them on a plain card base.

Here's my card!
Stamps: Stylish Sentiments
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Doodlebug Designs 6x6 Take Note Paper Pack, Smoky Shadow, White
Accessories, etc.: White embossing powder, pop dots

Lots 'O PDFs!

Good evening!

I've posted a big batch of pdf files. For some reason, only some of the pictures ended up having the corresponding number on them. I figure it's not detrimetnal to doing the sketch, so I am leaving them as they are.

Good morning! I hope you're ready for another sketch. I usually design my sketches in batches. This one was part of the batch I drew up back around April 7th. Why do I talk about this? Well it's just funny how design happens sometimes. I completely forgot what this week's sketch was until I checked it out a few days ago. I laughed, because on Sunday, I made the card you see here. Although it's not exact, it's pretty darn close, so I figured I'd use that. I'll probably still make another version, if I find the time!
Here's my "take" on the sketch. I did very little stamping. The vellum strips were made by colouring with various Copic markers.

Stamps: Stylish Sentiments: Birthday
Ink: Fresh Snow
Paper: Black, White, Smokey Shadow, Vellum
Accessories, etc.: Headline Alphabet dies, Copic markers.

It's been for-ev-er since I made a sample for FTL, and I decided was going to get her done this week. I went with a modern color combo, gray and coral.
Thanks for stopping by!

FTL239 Hi

I did a one layer card for the FTL239 sketch.  The flowers are rub-ons from my stash from years ago!  Even the sentiment is a rub-on.  Enjoy the sketch!



Here is the sketch:

Here is my take on it. I really wanted to use some of the new washi tape I recently acquired. I placed the tape on some scrap white cardstock and then punched out several circles. I was pretty happy with how it turned out. I was also pretty excited to see that the green in the washi tape matched PTI's Limeade Ice colour quite well.

Stamps: Birthday Basics
Ink: Limeade Ice
Paper: Limeade Ice, Enchanted Evening
Accessories, etc.: Washi Tape (My Mind's Eye), Several Circle Punches
