The Deconstructed Sketch No. 204

Hello there!

Welcome to the final edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

For my last card, I wanted to use my favorite papers, stamps, and dies to create something to express my gratitude to Jen for choosing me to be on her team 120+ sketches ago. It has been fun and challenging. I love how her sketches always stretch me to see things differently and try new things.

Thank you Jen, and all of the members of the Design Team for inspiring me to become a better papercrafter. It has been an awesome ride!

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 202

Hello there!

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

I have finally returned home from my awesome adventure. 4000 miles, 3 weeks, 9 National Parks. It was amazing! As soon as I got home, I was hit with a terrible migraine that put me in bed for a couple of days, so I am a little late in creating and posting my card. 

My mom's birthday is coming up in  a few days, so this card is for her. I used Graphic 45's Home Sweet Home paper collection and stamp set. Lots of inking and distressing, a bit of burlap and lace trim and a couple of PTI Enchanted Evening buttons finish it off.

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 201

Hello there!

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

I love this sketch (as I always do, right?). I always love sketches that are super versatile and have banners! 

I am still on my awesome vacation, but I brought along a little travel kit of papercrafting goodies so that I could participate in the weekly sketches. It was fun to challenge myself to use only what I had brought with me, rather than an entire craft store room full of product.

For this week's sketch I used Basic Grey's Vivienne collection and a sentiment stamp by Ali Edwards from Technique Tuesday's So Very Thankful set.

The Best of the First 200 - The Deconstructed Sketch

Hello there!

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

Since we just passed the 200 mark, Jen thought it would be fun to go back and let us choose our favorite sketch from the last 200 (!) sketches to showcase this week.

I chose sketch 66 for my card this week. 

I used one of my all-time favorite (and nearly gone!) paper pads for this week's card --  Simple Stories: Homespun. I also used the sentiment die from the Avery Elle Gift Card Elle-ments. I added a flower cut from the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, topped it with a PTI Pure Poppy button and some Hemptique twine to finish it off.


Here is the list of the other DT members so you can see which sketch inspired each of them this week:

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 200

Hello there!

Welcome to the 200th edition of The Deconstructed Sketch!

200 sketches. Wow. I am amazed every week at the awesome sketches Jen creates. They are so fun to work with. Congratulations on your impressive milestone, Jen! Here's to 200 more!

My card for this week was made to celebrate a 3-week road trip that my bestie and I are embarking upon beginning today. I am super excited!

I used papers, stickers, and chipboard from the Hello World collection by My Mind's Eye along with a fun stamp from Ali Edwards.

The Deconstructed Sketch No. 199

Hello there!

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

Jen has created another great sketch for us to play with this week.

I started with a circle of watercolor paper and added a wash of Worn Lipstick and Abandoned Coral Distress Inks, then added some splatters of the same colors of Distress Spray Stains, along with a spritz of Tarnished Bronze Distress Spray Stain. I then used the wreath image from the Happy Christmas stamp set, along with a couple of small chevrons from V for Chevron, sentiment from Winter Woodland and the 'happy' die from The Big, The Bold and the Happy Cutaways collection from Winnie and Walter. The Memory Box Lunette butterfly was cut from vellum and layered with gold glitter paper.
