I am using all papers from the Dear Lizzy Documentary 6×6 Paper Pad. I love these soft colors. I matted all of the pieces with black cardstock to really make them pop. I even added a matching arrow ribbon from my stash on the sides. For my sentiment I used a Hero Arts Sentiment set with my black Stazon Ink. I stamped on a white lined piece of velum and backed it with a coral piece of paper from the same paper pad.

As a finishing touch I added some beautiful sequins from Spiegelmom Scraps.

I love the this card sketch. I love how there’s room for a longer Sentiment. I decided to use paper from the Crate Paper Hello Love paper pad to create my layers. I backed all my layers with dark grey Recollections cardstock from Michaels. I also used a white doily from my stash.

For my sentiment I used a Hero Arts Stamp set # CL810 called Chalkboard Style Messages.

I stamped one part of the sentiment directly on the patterned paper and the other part on a piece of velum paper. I then finished it of with some black Basic Grey Enamel Dots in various sizes. This card was a lot of fun to put together.

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.
