Sketch Frenzy Friday--What WAS I thinking?!?

Hi Stampers:

It's Friday, Friday, FRIDAY!!! Time for another Sketch Frenzy Friday! Here's our sketch from Angela Walters:

Here's my card:

You know, there's a reason why Stampin' Up! pairs Designer Series Paper, punches, and stamp sets together in product suites, so WHAT WAS I THINKING to use the Charming stamp set with the pennant punch and Just Add Cake DSP? Don't know--but it kinda works I think. At least the colors do!

  • Baja Breeze card base

  • Layer of Early Espresso

  • Layer of skinny striped Just Add Cake DSP

  • Scalloped pennants punched out of Peach Parfait dotted side of Just Add Cake DSP

  • Three images from Charming stamped with Early Espresso

And there it is! Another SFF card from me!

Sketch Frenzy Friday-A Simple MDS Card

Hi Stampers:

It's Friday--YAY!! I love Friday's and I love doing the Sketch Frenzy Friday challenges! Today we have a simple but wonderful sketch from Tina Munzke:

And here's my MDS card:

I used the following in My Digital Studio:

  • Daffodil Delight base

  • Layer of Early Espresso in an elongated 1-1/14" square punch

  • Layer of Beyond the Garden Designer Series Paper in an elongated 1-1/4" square punch

  • Modern Label Punch in Early Espresso

  • Modern Label Punch in Whisper White

  • 1-1/4" striped Daffodil Delight ribbon

  • the sentiment is from the Fabulous Phrases stamp brush set

  • And I used the drop shadow feature on all elements, which I think makes the design look more like a REAL card!

Now it's time to check out all the other samples on our mini tour. Click MARIA'S BLOG to go to the next stop on the tour OR click SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY to go to the beginning of the tour, or to add YOUR sample. We would love to see what you create!

Hi Stampers:

  • Beyond the Garden DSP

  • Flower Garden textured expressions folder

  • Water color paper, blender pens, Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Marker

Sketch Frenzy Friday--A Quick Card!!

Hi Stampers:

I DO mean a quick card! Jennifer Weide provided the sketch this week, and as soon as I saw it, I had an idea of what I wanted to create, so it came together rather quickly. Here is Jennifer's sketch:

Here's my card:

As you can see, I deviated from the sketch a little bit. The center section is a strip of Beyond the Garden DSP, with Wild Wasabi punched with the Lace Ribbon Border Punch. I also wove a length of 1/8" Daffodil Delight taffeta ribbon thru the strip. The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White in Soft Suede ink and is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and mounted on a large scallop circle punched out of Daffodil Delight card stock. I also included a water colored blossom from the Fabulous Florets set. The blossom was stamped on our watercolor paper and painted with Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango.
