289 (for real)

I posted this week's sketch on Friday. Yesterday, I finally had some time to create! Here's what I did:

I was in the mood for some watercolouring fun. I pressed several different ink pads onto a large clear block, spritzed that with a bit of water, then dipped each die-cut feather in it. Afterwards, to add a bit more glitz, I spritzed them with a gold pearl-ex/re-inker/alcohol spray I mixed up.



Happy Friday!

Due to the holiday, I kind of forgot that today was the day for scheduling the sketch. Today was a family packed day, so by the time I got home, I wasn't really up for any creativity. However, I still have the sketch ready!

Happy Friday!

Here is this week's sketch!

If you're wanting a slight guideline for measurements:

For the stamped layer, I cut it to 5x3-3/4. Next I drew a grid, each rectangle was 15/16x1-1/4. I actually ended up using those guidelines to find a stamp set. I came across the Fresh Baked set and thought it would go perfectly! I figured this would make a nice thank you card for a wedding, shower, or housewarming gift.

Stamps: Fresh Baked, Fanciful Feathers
Ink: Terracotta Tile, Blueberry Sky, Smokey Shadow, Harvest Gold, Vintage Cream
Paper: Harvest Gold, Blueberry Sky, Smokey Shadow, Confetti White

FTL287 - Sweet Birthday Wishes

Hello! I'm popping in to share a card I created using this week's FTL287 sketch.  As soon as I saw the inspiration sketch, I knew exactly which stamp sets I wanted to use! :)

To create my card, I started by stamping the strawberry image from Whimsy Stamps' Feeling Fruity, then topping with the greenery.  Next, I adhered the stamped layer to mint CS before adhering to the card base with pop dots.  I cut a strip of green CS, and stamped and heat embossed the sentiment from Sweet as Candy.  I then die cut the large sweet sentiment, and glued it to the green CS banner.  To finish up, I adhered the banner to the card front with pop dots and embellished with clear gems.

Have a great one!
Heather P.
