Fall to Layout #30 Take Two


Happy Sunday!

Here's this week's sketch. I love how this one really allows for so many different backgrounds.


Dimensions:
A2 Card base: 4.25x5.5
Patterned layer: 4x4.25
Solid layer: 1.5x4.25

I decided to make two cards. I just got some Concord & 9th products and wanted to use those some of the new to me products.


First up the Wildflower set and a sentiment from the Sunshine Turnabout set. I stamped the flowers all over some watercolour paper. Then I painted a different colour over each image. To finish it off, I added some splatters. I paired that with a Bermuda Bay panel. The sentiment was stamped on the scalloped circle of the Sunshine dies.

The next card features some of the other images included in the Sprinkles Turnabout set. One thing I love about this is that the Sunshine circle die works perfectly with the sentiments included in this Turnabout set as well!



Here's Chera's Card:



I know this isn’t the simplest of CAS cards, but I just love making a background out of text words to match the card! For today's sketch I used Wplus9 Sending Sunshine. I used the longest sentiment to stamp on my card base “you make me happy when skies are gray”. Once I had the background all stamped I die cut out the element pieces: sun clouds and the word sunshine from the matching die set (sunshine layers). I placed everything into position, added some glossy accents to the word sunshine, the outer layer of the clouds and the inside of the sun for some added detail!! Sure hope you liked today's card and I look forward to seeing your creations!

Fall to Layout #29- Take Two


Hello!
It's time for another sketch!


Dimensions:
Card Front: 4.25 x 5.5
Patterned Panel: 3.75 x 5
Patterned Panel Frame: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8


Here's my card. I wanted to make my own patterned paper for the main panel. I got out some Harvest Gold card stock and started stamping stars all over in Orange Zest, Bright Buttercup, Harvest Gold, and Summer Sunshine. Next I die cut the "wish" from some Melon Mambo, and added some glossy accents to that. I adhered that to the patterned piece and then added the popped up "make a" portion of the sentiment. For some added interest, I added a few die cut stars, cut from black card stock. I used sheer black polka dot ribbon for my small horizontal element. One thing I really like doing with this sort of layout is adding a black mat. When using black elsewhere on a card, this black mat really ties it all together.


Supplies
Stamps: Count the Stars
Ink: Orange Zest, Bright Buttercup, Harvest Gold, Summer Sunshine, Black
Paper: White, Black, Harvest Gold, Melon Mambo
Dies: Stars & Wishes, Superstar Borders, Small sketched stars
Accessories,etc.: Glossy Accents, Sheer ribbon

Here's Chera's card (this is one of my favorites from her!):


Happy Sunday!! Here's my take on this weeks sketch! Had fun with this one…pulled out another old set from Wplus9 Quilt print. I started off by stamping the card panel with versa mark in and then clear embossing powder over it. Once the while card front was covered I pulled out my distress inks to give this ombre look (seedless preserves, victorian velvet and spun sugar) Added the happy birthday and some sequins for sparkle!!

Fall to Layout #28- Take Two





My dimensions:
Card Front: 4.25 x 5.5
Side Panel: 2.5 x  4.25h
Side Panel Frame: 2-5/8 x 4-3/8


I started with a branch from Spring Woods. I die cut that and used the MISTI for accurate placement. One tip for this set-if you are going to use the dies,  be sure to die cut first and then stamp. After that I  die cut the bird and stamped that. I suppose there aren't that many pink birds out there but I thought it went nicely with the colour scheme.  The greeting comes from the Winter Woods set. 
  
Here's Chera's card:


Happy Sunday everyone!! Here's my take on this week's sketch for you! I’ve been going through my stash of stamps lately and pulling out sets that have been neglected for a while! Todays set is Wplus9 pretty peonies! The Thank you is from Altenews Many Thanks set!  I stamped the leaves image onto a piece of white cardstock I die cut from MFT tag die set. Once that I then die cut the flowers and stamped the images on them and popped up a few just for added dimension! Hope you feel inspired! I look forward to see what you've created!
