Sketch N Scrap DT Card Sketch #67

This months first card sketch is #67 by the very talented Mandy Reedyk. The first thing that caught my eye was the vertical design of this sketch. I was also really drawn to the cluster of circles vertically lined up on one side of the card. This design is very pleasing to the eye. I was very excited to create my card.

This sketch was perfect for a Valentines Day Card. For this card I wanted to create a fun, non traditional Valentines Day Card. I began with black recollections cardstock as my base. I used a Momenta Chevron embossing folder to create some texture on the front layer of my card. I then took a scallop circle punch and punched out two circles which I made into shaker pockets. I then filled those pockets with fuchsia and gold sequins. I added a few additional circles that I punched out of black cardstock as well as velum. I brought in some more gold with the Studio Calico Gold Doilies and the chevron circles I punched out of a sheet from a DCVW Gold Foiled Velum 6×6 Pad. I stamped a few hearts in different sizes on the velum paper using Memento Dew Drop Ink pad in Lilac Posies.  I used the same ink and a wooden block stamp to stamp my sentiment. I them fussy cut the bigger hearts and my sentiment. For the smaller hearts I used a small heart punch. As a finishing touch I took a white gelly roll pen and a black thin point sharpie pen and created faux stitching lines around the hearts and one of the circles.

I am very happy with how my card turned out. I’m pretty sure that this is the card I will give to my boyfriend this Valentines Day.

Sketch N Scrap DT Card#65

IMG_3658

Hello friends, I am very excited to announce that in 2016 I will continue  as a part of the Sketch N Scrap Blog Design Team. Sketch N Scrap is a Sketch Blog that provides monthly card and layout sketches free of charge. They even host a monthly challenge, any one that plays along with our sketches and links their project to the blog is entered to win a fun prize. There is one winner per month. My first project for this term is Card Sketch# 65 by Kelly Holifield. This sketch is absolutely adorable. Being from Florida I don’t get to use my Winter themed stickers all that often so this card was perfect to use up an adorable Snowman and Snowflakes from a Sticko Christmas Sticker pack and pretty silver Snowflake Paper which I’ve had in my stash for quite some time. I stamped the Believe Sentiment on two layers of velum which I then snipped the edges of and made into a banner. This card was a lot of fun to make. I hope you will all join us and play along with this months sketches. Be sure to also visit & follow the Sketch N Scrap Facebook Group for up to date information, inspiration and fun sketches. Thanks for stopping by. XOXO -Katty
