Your wings already exist.

Hi friends! 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! Corbett Creations 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 yours truly:


I’ve created sketches for the first six card challenges this year at Stick It Down. I’m a novice, never having created any sketches before, and I’ve had a great time! Using this month’s sketch, I created an inspirational card featuring another one of Lozzy’s digital papers, along with wings and sentiments from Paper Wings Productions.


I once again dug into my digital papers from Lozzy that I won a while back (I just LOVE them) and came up with a teal pattern that worked really well with my card design. I heat embossed the wings and watercolored them, then fussy cut them and added a little sparkle overlay marker. I added the vertical sentiment and several tiny black gemstones on the left side.


I embellished the inside panel with leftover strips of paper and cardstock used on the front. I used a vertical sentiment on the inside as well. I’ve always loved vertical sentiments, as they add interest to a card, but this is the first time I’ve ever used one on the inside and I think I like it! ;)


One more look… really loving how this turned out! It’s so amazing how something so simple can pack such a big punch!

Cardstock/Paper: Cardstock Warehouse pure white cardstock, Marco’s Kachina Grass Cloth cardstock, Stampin’ Up Soft Sky cardstock, Lozzy Star Splash Mixed Media digital paper

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
