FTL9- Take Two

Happy Friday! 

By this time, I should be almost at my destination in Barcelona. It's been planned for months, and it's finally here! I've always wanted to see Europe and my husband and I decided to book a Mediterranean Cruise for our honeymoon! 

But enough about that, onto this week's sketch!

This card is meant to not be the standard 4.25x5.5 size. I made mine 3.75x6. I've still been on a bit of a patterned paper kick. I went through my Doodlebug Designs stash and found this adorable cherry paper. I selected coordinating colours and stamps and got to work!

Stamps: Scent-imentals
Ink: Pure Poppy, New Leaf, Black
Paper: Doodlebug Designs Fruit Stand, Pool Party, Pure poppy, White
Accessories, etc.: Limitless Layers-Circle, Ribbon

Stamps: Life is Beautiful, Inside & Out: Birthday
Paper: Soft Stone, White, Classic Kraft, Stampin' Up! Paper
Accessories, etc: Circle nestablities, grosgrain ribbon, scalloped edge punch

FTL6- Take Two

Hello! Here's the 6th sketch! I like this one because you can use basic paper, patterned paper, or stamp your own patterned paper.

Here's my take on the sketch!
I was in the mood for something cheerful. I decided to go through my stash and saw that I had so many different yellow papers, so I thought it'd be nice to use them all together.

I stamped the two sized leafy sprigs in Versamark on each square and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I attached the yellow squares onto some brown card stock and then placed that onto a cream card base.

Stamps: Spring Blooms, Fresh Baked
Ink: Versamark, Dark Chocolate
Paper: More Mustard, Summer Sun, Crushed Curry, Lemon Tart, Harvest Gold, Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate
Accessories, etc.: Corner Rounder
