Sketch Frenzy Friday 07-26-13

Hi Stampers:

It's Friday again!!!  Time for another Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch and creation.  I swear these weeks are flying so fast, I can hardly keep track of them!  Oh well!  Here's our sketch, created by Patrice:
And here is my card:
It is a larger-than-standard card.  As I was working with all the elements, I couldn't fit them on a standard 4-1/4" X 5-1/2" card, so I decided to use a 5-1/2" X 5-1/2" square card.  And, no, Stampin' Up! doesn't sell large square envelopes, BUT, you CAN make one with the Simply Scored tool and the Diagonal Score Plate.  AND soon you'll be able to buy the new Envelope Punch Board to make any size envelopes.  Stay tuned to this blog for more details.  In the meantime, here is what I used for this project:
  • Chalk Talk stamp set  w-130631, c-130634, pg. 12
  • Label Something stamp set  w-130595, c-130598, pg. 42
  • Chalk Talk Framelits  129983, pg. 187
  • Hexagon Punch  130919, pg. 180
  • Very Vanilla cardstock 101650, pg. 145
  • Baked Brown Sugar cardstock  131296, pg. 141
  • Epic Day This and That Designer Series Paper  130814, pg. 154
  • Epic Day This and That Washi Tape  131269, pg. 155
  • Candy Dots (Subtles)  130933. pg. 147
  • In Color Boutique Details  130938, pg. 169
In case you're wondering, I created the Baked Brown Sugar frames for the Chalk Talk labels, by tracing the outer edge of the framelit and cutting it out by hand.

Well, time for me to sign off!  Please go to our SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY BLOG to check out all the designers' creations AND add your own.  We would love to see what YOU create!

Sketch Frenzy Friday--Fourth of July A Day Late

Hi Stampers:

I know, I know--it's July 5th, not July 4th!!!  However, I waited until almost the last minute to create my card for the sketch this week, and, as luck would have it, I was able to CASE a July 4th card that a friend of mine created.  Here is the sketch, created by Jennifer:
And here is my creation:
For this card I used:
  • Whisper White, Real Red, and Midnight Muse card stock
  • Too Kind and Best of Greetings stamp sets
  • Silver Glimmer paper punched with the Scallop Border Punch
  • Basic Rhinestone jewels
  • Hardware Clips Essentials
  • Midnight Must stitched ribbon
  • Midnight Muse and Real Red Stampin' Write Markers
The word CELEBRATE! is an outline type font, and I thought it needed some oomph, so I filled in the outline of each letter with the markers.  I really think the blossoms from too kind look like fireworks, and THAT is the idea I got from Mary Brown.  If you would like to see her card, click HERE.

That's all from me.  If you want to see more, go to our SFF BLOG , and please join us.  We would love to see what you can do with this sketch!
