Ok so another Monday is here - and another sketch! For todays sketch I used some of the leftover pieces from my Simply Savvy Schemes Page Kit - and my album project. It is so SMART to use up you scraps when you are scrapbooking to make cards! If you have not checked out the SSS blog you should - it is a great system to take the anxiety of getting caught up on your scrapbooking - and help to put the JOY back in it!
And here is the card I made with this sketch - Any Red Hat ladies out there?
Stamps: Hats Off stamp set from The Angel Company
Ink: Noir Palettet Ink Pad
Papers: White Cardstock and Cha Cha SWIC pattern papers and Cardstock
Accessories: Edge Distressor, Red Scrappers Floss, Prisma Colored pencils
I was surprised at how well the Cha Cha Papers work for "Red Hat" colors. Fun huh! The glitter on the flower really does not look THAT yellow - Stickles are hard to catch in photos. The Scrappers floss is so fun and mimics the twirls on her hat - I hear so often "How do I use Scrappers Floss?" Just wrap it around and tie in a knot. Then I used the tip of my piercing tool to make the end curly by just winding it around and voila! That strip of flowers - is the color swatch on the cut off strip! I love to use those little precious scraps!
Here is a detatil shot:
I got me a brand spanking NEW 120 Prisma Color pencils! Yeah me! I cannot resist reaching for those every time i want to color. And I did not use anything but pencil - no blender or anything is needed to achieve this look. (Practice maybe - but not blender!)
SO take a shot on the sketch and leave a comment so we can all check out your creation.
Anyone up for a Card Camp? I have been hearing that every one misses my card stamp camps - so lets have one! I will have 4 designs for you to make and you can make multiples of each design to create your stack! The cost will be just $4 per set OR Make a FREE set with every $30 purchase! AND to sweeten it even more it will also be a MYSTERY Hostess party! Every $10 in order will put your name in the pot to earn the hostess benefits! I hope to be able to give away LOTS of goodies - since the hostess sets and half price items are all doubles - PLUS the Limited edition sets too! This may be a great time to get those Level C and D sets you can't earn on your own.
Bring a friend and get an extra entry for both of you.
Get an extra entry when you RSVP by WEDNESDAY with how many sets you want to make.
Details: We will be at BG in Manhattan. Doors will open at 10AM Saturday morning. I will have 2 tables reserved for the Card Camp - and the rest will be available for OPEN CROP time. SO come and make a few cards - and stay to work on your own things.
I will also have available the Monthly Optional Book kit - the Purse-onality mini book! Reserve your kit in either Uptown Girl or A Little Whimsy papers for just $12.
