I used Kraft colored embroidery floss to create the lines on the card. The images and sentiment were stamped with Momento Rose Bud, Pear Tart, Tangelo and Desert Sand dye inks. The fun sentiment is from Paper Smooches.
The amazingly talented N@ Ali has really opened some graphic doors for us with this sketch! The DT creations and the gallery is absolutely bursting with talent! No shortage of inspiration at this blog!
These colors may look familiar to those of you playing along with this weeks ColorQ challenge. Unfortunately, Mr. Linkey closed his doors while I was uploading my picture! My fault, not his :)
Paper - all SU except CTMH White card stock; SU bigz die; Recollections alphabet (u)
Don't you just lovethe fabulous pop of red lipstick? One wee splash of color made this stunning creation go from Wow to WOW with the stroke of a lip brush! She's also sporting some pretty fine looking shoes too!
I love the simple elegance of black & white. When I saw this challenge at Runway Inspired Challenge, I could not pass it bye! I'm also entering this week's Casology challenge, where the cue word is Word and also challenge #11 at Addicted to CAS where the code word is Flower.
Simple details: Image is a $1 stamp that I found in a wee craft store somewhere in Tulsa, OK about five years ago (Autumn Leaves). The sentiment is from an Inkadinkado set. The paper (of which I am hoarding) is X-press It Blending Card Stock with Stazon Solvent Jet Black ink.
Same post as yesterday, but with a bit of a remake! I just didn't like the bland look of the previous version, so I changed things up with some polka dot paper! Definitely brighter but still fitting for a 10 lb. 9 oz newborn lad !!!
What was I thinking....
I embarked on what was suppose to be a 'quick' paper piecing project last night. One teenie wee piece led to another and 3 1/2 hours later I had the animals done. The Arc was a bit easier, except for the crazy small circles! I'm sure that I broke my eyes, but it was fun!
I struggled a bit with the sketch elements around the image panel, but nothing seemed to work. I settled on a simple zig zag embossing folder (SU) and actually liked it! That doesn't happen often.
Hope you can find time to play along with us this week at Unscripted Sketches. We would love to see your creations :)
Card details: Every bit of paper, with the exception of the white card base, was fished out of my scrap piles; SU embossing folder and stamps, Lil' Inkers Stitched Banner die
My apologies for the late update but yesterday at lunch time, I went downstairs to put in a load of laundry and was greeted by a bit of a lake...the hot water heater decided that after 10 years it was done! Needless to say, we were mopping and slopping for the rest of the day.
On to some fun stuff, I am in love with the Paper Smooches Hexalongs! I taped the smallest one into the next size to cut out the above shapes, punched a circle, added the rub-on and done! The hardest part of this card was deciding where to put the sentiment?
"The day after what was I thinking" occurred and I realized that the hexalongs should have been slanted down to work with the sentiment. If you're 'over the hill' you have already been to the top and are slowly tumbling down!!! Oh well :D
Check out the lovlies that the two amazing DT's have created at (CAS)E This Sketch and at the fun new challenge blog Fusion where you can choose one of two options or both options when making your card!
Paper Smooches Wise Dies - Hexalong; CTMH white card stock, scraps of green & grey
Unscripted Sketches is 4 years young and we're having a party! There might just be some sweet surprises waiting for you over at the blog.
The flower and leaf dies are MFT ( three layers for the flowers), sentiment is SU. There is a scored line above and below the skinny little green strip of paper but dang it all, it doesn't show up in the photo!
We would love to have you join us for the celebration!
Needless to say, I was beyond thrilled, honored...and nervous, when the oh-so-sweet and very-talented Melissa asked me if I would like to be a guest designer for this challenge. It took me all of 2 seconds to say yes, and several days to come up with a card! A 'few' re-makes later, along with 'the odd addition' to the recycle bin, this is the card I settled on.
My inspiration came from a photo that I saw when I googled 'travel'. I really like the movement that the angle of the railing seems to create. Similar to an ocean liner moving off into the big blue sea, carrying the passengers to a beautiful tropical island where they don't have any SNOW! A touchy subject around here these days!
I know that the amazing DT at CASology will have some worldly type creations that will have us heading straight to our craft rooms!. Hope you find time to play along :)
Supplies: CTMH white cardstock; SU Real Red and scrap pile blue
My plans of doing nothing but the 110 wedding invitations got put on the back burner for a bit when I saw this fun sketch by my dear blogging friend Karolyn along with the sweet Chevron sketch from SarahKaye....I just had to play along :)
