The Deconstructed Sketch No. 147

Hello there!

Welcome to another awesome edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

I have been so excited about this sketch for weeks now and I can't wait to give this card to it's recipient!

This card is for my sweet little niece who is turning ten years old this week. She saw this sketch on my desk a couple of weeks ago when she was visiting and thought it was super cool, so I have been thinking about how I could turn it into a birthday card for her. When My Favorite Things released the You're Super stamp set, I knew it was a match made in card making heaven!

Since I am not much of a colorist, my roommate was kind enough to color the image for me... just so you all know that my coloring skills have not vastly improved in the last while! =)



Here is the list of the other DT members so you can see the amazing creations they have come up with using this week's fantastic sketch:
I hope you are inspired to give this fabulous sketch a try. If you want to play along with us at The Deconstructed Sketch this week, the linky tool and details are over on Jen's blog! 

Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your day!

Little Tangles Challenge #34 - Masking

Hello there!

I have been wanting to try my hand at the masking technique for some time now, especially after seeing the amazing creations that Laura Bassen keeps turning out, so the Little Tangles Challenge #34 is the perfect reason to just do it! :)

I stamped the solid heart from Neat & Tangled's  You + Me set, then carefully cut it out, and used that as a mask, then masked off a strip for my sentiment, and also masked off to create "rays" of color... it only took me 3 failed attempts to create a card that I was happy with. I know there are still some flaws, but for my first try at masking, I'll let 'em go...

 

I love the Little Tangles Challenges... even if I don't always get my card posted, I play along and learn a fun new technique!

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your day!

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 146

Hello there!

Welcome to another Deconstructed Sketch!



I am still loving the Papertrey Ink Wet Paint stamp set, so I used that again, along with some papers from the MME Record It! Charmed 6 x 6 paper pad. Some chipboard hearts from Studio Calico and some sequins from Hazel and Ruby finish things off.

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 145

Hello there!

Welcome to this week's edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

It's another good one!

I used Teresa Collins Daily Stories paper, the fabulous Maggie Holmes Doilies Embossing Folder by American Crafts, and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Inside & Out: Well Wishes stamp set. The super cute bow is made with the Dainty Bows Die-namics by My Favorite Things.

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 144

Hello there!

Welcome to this week's edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

This week, I got the new Papertrey Ink Wet Paint stamp set in the mail. It is so fabulous! There are so many beautiful sentiment combinations to work with, so I had to create more than one card!

I decided to make a little set of notecards using Basic Grey's Fresh Cut papers:

Oh Happy Day!

Hello there and Happy Wednesday!

Do you ever find products that just make you happy?

I saw these new Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine and Let's Polka papers at my LSS the other day and right away had an idea for a card. Don't you love it when that happens? As I walked along, I found this uber-cute stamp set and die set to match and the result is this card, which literally created itself! :)


The sentiment at the bottom is from Lawn Fawn's Plus One stamp set.

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 143

Hello there!

Welcome to another AWESOME Deconstructed Sketch!

I know I say it every week, but only because it's true! Jen creates the coolest and best sketches around! This week is really fun! I couldn't stop using it... I will only show you 2 of the cards I made, though! ;) But there are more! You will see what I mean... Once you get started, you will have so much fun!

Ok, here is my first card. I just love the new My Mind's Eye Now & Then collection. I paired these beautiful papers with some goodies from my latest Studio Calico card kit (Office Hours). I just love the adorable stamp set that was included this time, along with the matching wood veneers, oh, and that fabulous ribbon!



Well, I was very happy with how this card came out, but I woke up with an idea... 

So, I had to go in right away and see if it would work... and it did! Lo, and behold, the Diagonal Stripes Cover Plate from Papertrey Ink is a match made in heaven for this sketch. 

See what I mean?


The sentiment is from PTI's Building Blocks stamp set. I just love it!
