Happy Friday!

Here's this week's sketch! It's meant to be a shape card, preferably circular.

Here's my take. I just got these balloon dies from Simon Says Stamps and wanted to use them. I ended up deviating from the sketch just a bit.  I tried adding the two-tone, but it just didn't work.

Stamps: Birthday Balloons
Paper: Raspberry Fizz, Doodlebug Designs- Fruit Stand, Take Note
Accessories, etc: Balloons dies
Ink: Black

FTL285 - Thanks So Very Much

Hello! Hope your week has been going well... We've had some crazy weather this week, yesterday it was snowing, and today it's sunny! :) I'm popping in to share a card I created using this week's Clean & Simple Stamping FTL285 sketch.

I started by stamping a mint CS panel with one of the border strips from Peacock Pretties in versamark ink, then heat embossing with white powder.  I then adhered the mint layer to light gray CS.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from Lots to Say in gray ink, then once it dried, I adhered the CS to the card base with pop dots.

Have a great one! :)

Supply List:
Stamps - Peacock Pretties & Lots to Say (Reverse Confetti)
Paper - Soft Stone, Smokey Shadow (PTI); Tide (Hero Arts)
Ink - Versamark, Flannel Gray Memento Luxe (Tsukineko)
Miscellaneous - White Embossing Powder (Hero Arts)

FTL283 - Sweet Birthday Wishes

Hi, everyone! Heather P. here, just popping in to share a card I created using Natasha's fabulous FTL283 sketch. :) 

To create my card today, I started with a coral card base, which I stamped with the large "sweet" sentiment in versamark ink before heat embossing with white power.  Next, I cut a mat from gray striped CS, and used a circle die to create a window before adhering it to the card base with pop dots.  To finish up, I stamped a smaller sentiment onto a strip of light pink CS, attached it to the card front, then embellished with white enamel dots.

Have a great one!

FTL283 Summer Rain

This is my take on FTL283.  I took a little liberty with the leaf placement instead of a sentiment.  The embossed top panel is adhered with foam tape over the card front.  I used the Bokeh technique on the card front with Distress Inks and some stamps and pencil erasers.  I was inspired by a photo on Pinterest as part of the SCS Inspiration challenge.

Supplies: Stamps - Sweet 'N Sassy Seasons of Change, Winnie & Walter Big Bang Confetti; Ink - Disrtess Inks; Paper - PaperTrey; Misc - Tim Holtz embossing folder, Sweet 'N Sassy Leaf Die, WPlus9 Rain Drop die, Foam Tape, Foam Squares

Happy Friday!

At this point, truth be told, it is Wednesday evening. I am doing some cat-sitting/house-sitting and did not bring any supplies with me, so I'm doubtful that I will get to making my sketch card before this post goes live.

However, that should not prevent you from seeing the sketch and having a chance to participate!
