Happy Anniversary

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Our new sketch challenges this month are live over at Stick It Down and I’ve popped in this morning to share my Card Team inspiration project! Scrappin’ Happy Studio is our sponsor this month so come on over and play for the chance to win a prize! The card team is showcasing projects today on the blog and this is our super awesome card sketch this month, created by none other than yours truly! ;)


I challenged myself and created my first-ever card sketches for the first six card challenges this year at Stick It Down, and I’m pretty proud of how they turned out! ;) Using this month’s sketch, I created a pretty anniversary card in a striking silver and blue color combo. The papers are some of Lozzy’s digital papers that I won a while back in one of her challenges. :)


I layered the papers on a lighter blue cardstock and then adhered them to the dark blue card base. I added two layered stitched star die cuts, a stamped sentiment and a few drops of Liquid Mercury Crystal Drops.


I embellished the inside panel with leftover paper and cardstock strips used on the front, and stamped the sentiment in blue ink. I won the sentiments stamp set in another challenge a while back. I don’t win tangible prizes very often but I did have a winning streak a few months ago! ;)


Here’s one more look… I’m really loving how this turned out!


Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Marco’s Persian Blue cardstock, GKD Little Boy Blue cardstock, Marco’s Venicelux Silver Metallic cardstock, Cardstock Warehouse pure white cardstock
Stamps: The Cat’s Pajamas Simply Stacked Sentiments stamp set
Ink: Ranger Blueprint Sketch distress ink
Dies/Punches: Memory Box Stitched Star Layers dies
Accessories:  ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever, MISTI stamp tool, Gemini Junior die cutting machine, Nuvo Liquid Mercury Crystal Drops

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s project and will link up with us! Feel free to play along with the double page or single page sketch if you’re a scrapbook layout designer, or the card sketch if you’re a card maker! You have until the end of the month to play and we’d love to see what you create! Be sure to check out all the fun goodies at Scrappin’ Happy Studio! Thanks so much for stopping by today – we’ll see you next time! ;)

Scrappy hugs,

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. Hi, Leslie. This is a gorgeous card. I am in awe you’ve been doing those sketches, I never snapped to that, but I have been thinking their sketches have been really good! You should be proud, I’ve been reading, just not commenting, I’ll be so happy once dear daughter’s wedding is in rearview! XOX
