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.
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)
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)
Ink - Versafine(Onyx Black)
Stamp - Stampendous ( Skateboard Kiddo)
Dies - MFT (Mix & Match Banners)
Inside Sentiment - Sweet N Sassy (Birthday Innies)
Seize the Birthday Challenge's Topping Option this week was to use white on white for a birthday card. I chose to emboss a white panel with a Darice folder and then add butterflies punched from vellum on top of the raised ones. A simple sentiment was added to the upper corner in black to finish this elegant birthday greeting. Thanks for visiting.
Stamp: Stampin' Up
Embossing Folder: Darice (butterflies in corner)
Pears: Hero Arts
Ink: Versafine (onyx black)
