SSSC42 Thankful Thoughts

It is Sunday Peeps, which means it is time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch.

The card that I have for today using the SSSC#42 was created using the stamp sets Autumn Harvest and the sentiment is from the new set Grateful Greetings.

Here is the sketch we are using this week:

My card base is taken with teal and the DS paper comes from the Autumn Meadows pack. I also used some whisper white and chocolate chip cardstock. I paper pieced the pumpkin with ore of the DS paper from that same pack.The pumpkin and the sentiment panel are both mounted using dimensionals. I added some piercing and finally some wide chocolate chip striped grosgrain ribbon.

I was really having fun with this sketch and so I made another card with it and then couldn't decide which I liked best to use for today's sketch, so how about both:

This one uses the A Cardinal Christmas Set. The base and DS paper is old olive, I used real red and whisper white cardstock too. I added some white satin ribbon and some dazzling diamonds to the berries, very pretty IRL.

So why not join in on the fun and create a card using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch, then link your card over at Karen's blog for all of us to see.

I found your blog via the Daily Dare and Sweet Sunday stampers, I'm so glad I did - I love these cards. I think it is great to demonstrate the versatility of the sketch to accommodate two different types of cards. Can't pick a favorite, I love them both!

I don't know which one I like best either because they are both amazing! Fabulous job on the sketch and I really like how you used 2 different card sizes to show off the versatility of the layout. Awesome!

Stef Perry said...

Yup, love them both. Each one has it's own beautiful elements and both are equally yummy (that's the technical term, right?).
