Freshly Made Sketches 141 challenge was the inspiration behind this card. I had paper from Kaisercraft that I wanted to use so that's where I started. Instead of cutting small pieces and placing them on the card, I cut one large background piece and layered black strips for the cross-sections.
I really liked this card when I finished it today. I'm always being asked for birthday cards for boys so I used the sketch from Retro Sketches as my starting point for this one. The skateboarder has been in my collection for quite a while and I knew that it would be perfect. I paired the stamp with paper from the Echo Park Scoot 6x6 paper pad and created this fun card.
Cardstock - MFT (Nightshift Blue, Blu Raspberry, Gumdrop Green, Orange Fizz)
Patterned Paper - Echo Park (Scoot paper pad)

Today's card is based on this sketch by CAS(E) this Sketch and features stars for the Merry Monday Challenge. I wanted a card that was bright and colorful so I started with the paper from Recollections that I've been holding in my stash. The sentiment stamp is from Inkadinkado set called Warm Holiday Wishes and it has stars mixed throughout the lettering. The red and green stars in the lower corner are affixed with foam adhesive to give some dimension.
Stamp - Inkadinkado (Warm Holiday Wishes)
Ink - ColorBox (Cranberry)
Paper - Recollections
Dies - MFT (Layered Label Die)
Kraftin' Kimmie's Anything Goes was the inspiration for these two cards. Using the August sketch and the KKS stamp Birthday Lulu for the first card I created a cute birthday card. The second card was made with the Zinnia Bouquet stamp from Taylored Expressions. Turning the sketch and using different colors made them completely unique. Also entering the second card into the Paper Players challenge 358 for emphasis on coloring. By using monochromatic colors the focus is on the colored image.
