Seize the Sketch

The sketch I’m using today is from Seize the Sketch.

Kelly Janes:

Using a Colonial White Card for the base, next adding a layer of  B&T paper from the Frosted Paper Packet. I then added another layer of B&T paper that was cut from the same sheet. You may remember from a previous post that ALL of Close To My Heart’s B&T Duos™ are double sided, so you get two patterns on a single sheet of paper. I then added 2 small strips cut from the Black & Grey Glitter Paper (but a nice substitute for this would be the Silver Shimmer Trim).

Kelly Janes:

I love rosettes!! I especially love the look of this rosette which was cut from the Artiste Cricut® Cartridge on Colonial White Cardstock. It reminds me so much of a snowflake which fits my theme perfectly! I used Liquid Glass to adhere the rosette together, and also to secure my Clear Sparkle to the center.

The sentiment is from a stamp set that is included in the Art Philosophy Cricut® Cartridge Bundle and is stamped in Whisper Exclusive Ink®.

This sketch is fantastic and can be used for a variety of occasions! I will definitely be using it for future cards!!


Atlantic Hearts & Dynamic Duos

I love when you see a sketch and you immediately have a clear vision in your head on what the finished card is going to look like. That is exactly what happened when I saw the sketch from the  Atlantic Hearts Challenge!!

Using the color combination from the Dynamic Duos challenge I knew exactly what I was going to create!

Starting with a Colonial White Cardstock Base, I added a layer of Slate Cardstock followed by another layer of Colonial White Cardstock. The doilies and the sentiment, from the Love Doily Stamp Set, are stamped in Black Exclusive Ink®. For the final touch, I placed two strips of Slate Ribbon from the Workshops On The Go® For Always Cardmaking Kit*.

I’m in LOVE with the detail of this doily!!!! There is so much detail there is no need to add any further embellishments. I’m really, really pleased with the finished design of this card!
