2 Cards for 1 Sketch
Good Monday Morning Peeps!!! Hope you all had a great weekend! How about that Super Bowl? I was so disappointed that the Cardinals didn't win, but it was a really great game!!!
I made a couple of cards during the pre-game and game to show you today. Both of the cards was made with Jen's Sketch for you to Try..
When I print out a sketch, I always start thinking about what set I would like to use with it. My first thought was the flower from the SU Hostess set, Dream a Little. When I sit down to make it, I totally spaced that out. I pulled out the SU a Happy Heart Set and wanted to try to use the butterfly from it for the circles. I used some Washington Apple DS paper and riding hood red and bashful blue cardstock and altho I like this card the next is my fave.
This is the card I had first thought about when I saw the sketch. I stamped the flower from the SU Dream a Little Hostess set with black stazon on watercolor paper and used my markers and aquapainter to color the flowers. I used rose red and old olive. Every time I sit down to make a card recently I have been trying really hard to make a SU only card and I always fall short. I reach for my cuttlebug embossing folders or a non-SU punch. I am ordering those embossing plates from SU so that will help and my new decorative edge SU punch is on it's way to me now.
Well, that is all I have for you today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
