Hello note card

Hi everyone! Happy Monday to you! Our new sketch challenges this month are live over at Stick It Down and I’m proud to be one of the Featured Designers! I’ve popped in this morning to share my Card Team inspiration project! Spiegelmom Scraps is our sponsor this month so come on over and play for a 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:

April 2019

I created a pretty note card using the gorgeous African Violet image and paper from Fred, She Said Designs. The images and papers in this set go together beautifully – I used the red version. I added a pretty script sentiment die cut.

Mandi created an awesome sketch, and this card would be really easy to mass produce to create a set to give as a gift. I turned the landscape element in the center to a portrait orientation, and added a scrap of white crochet lace for a little texture and interest.

Since this is a note card, I left the inside blank to write a custom note to the recipient.

March2019 card

I created my first-ever pet sympathy card, and although it’s not something anyone wants to ever go through, I really love how it turned out and would be proud to give it away. Thank you, Laura, for another fantastic sketch!

2018_12230005a

I used two Paper Smooches stamp sets to create the background following the sketch, stamping in neutral colors with just a pop of red. I layered the panel on red cardstock and added a few sequins in keeping with the sketch. I left the inside blank to write a custom sentiment.

TRULY Grateful

Hi everyone! A very happy Monday to you! I’ve popped in this morning to share my first project as a card team member for Stick It Down! I’m absolutely thrilled! Cheeky 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:

Jan 2019 card

I created a pretty thank you card – I don’t ever seem to have enough of those in my stash. This is a simple design that could be easily be reproduced to create a set to give as a gift. Mandi did a great job designing this sketch!

2018_1222001a

I created a top fold card base using my curved matting basics die set. I stamped the woodgrain background and added randomly-placed wood planks and acorns for a little interest. I cut the dark layering panel and the background panel with graduating sizes of dies from the set, then stamped the wheat and cut it with a smaller die, and adhered it to the front. I stamped the sentiment on dark cardstock, heat embossed it and trimmed it down. I cut a slightly wider strip which I layered underneath and adhered them across the center of the card front. To finish the design, I added three metal studs on the bottom right.

2018_1222002a

I cut panels for the inside using the same curved matting basics die set. I stamped the woodgrain, acorns and wood planks randomly down the left side of the panel and then stamped the sentiment.

And here’s one more look… really loving how this turned out!
