Good morning!

Here is this week's sketch.

Some dimensions:
  • Card: 4-1/4x5-1/2
  • Main Image Panel: 3x5-1/2
  • Mat: 3-1/8x5-1/2
  • Accent piece- variable- I used my washi tape as a guide and then kind of centered it on there and trimmed it to wherever looked best.

I went with really bright colours for mine. I wanted to use this Doodlebug Designs rainbow polka-dotted washi tape, so I used that to help pick out my ink and paper colour choices.

I stamped and coloured the cupcakes and then fussy cut them out. I pieced the card together and then the final step was to add the Stickles. I have a bad habit of adding the Stickles to cut out objects before adhering them to a card. I got smart and did it last for once!

Stamps: Sweets & Treats, Sweets & Treats Fillers, Fresh Baked (Wplus9 Designs)
Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Limeade Ice, Tempting Turquoise, Tuxedo Black
Paper: White, Limeade Ice, Raspberry Fizz, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories, etc.: Washi Tape (Doodlebug Designs), Stickles, dimensional tape, Copics

Happy Friday and Happy Summer!!

I hope you're ready for a sketch. This one was inspired from the most recent Stampin' Up! catalog. I liked the simplicity of the one image with the repeated sentiment in the background.

Here's my take on it. I thought some heart shaped flowers would be fun!

Stamps: Heartfelt Mix, (WP9), Beautiful Bloom II, Faux Ribbon (PTI)
Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Simply Chartreuse, Hawaiian Shores
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Raspberry Fizz, White
Accessories, etc.: Hearts & Clouds Die (WP9)

FTL 245 Just Me Thinking of You

This sketch is a great way to use some of that wonderful Washi Tape you have hanging around....  At least that's what I did!
The hardest part of this card was cutting the bottoms of the strips of Washi Tape... but even then....

Paper: Limeade Ice, Harvest Gold,  Lemon Tart, Fruitstand 6x6
