Today we have a public holiday so we can get ready for the AFL Grand Final; I’m not sure a day off is warranted for a football game but I’ll take it – LOL!
I used stamp sets from Altenew ‘Birthday Greetings’, Paper Smooches ‘Chubby Chums’ and DSP from Catherine Pooler Designs ‘Black Tie Gala’. I stamped the chick (tweet) for my main image and water coloured her in. Then I stamped the sentiment along the edge of the DSP to match the sketch. Nice and CAS don’t you think?
Another sketch inspired card. This time from Freshly Made Sketches.
I loved this sketch and it lends itself to another Christmas card for my stash. I used a retired stamp set from Clearly Besotted ‘Modern Christmas’ and stamped 3 of the trees across the centre of my card in Catherine Pooler Designs ink Lime Rickey. I then stamped the sentiment in Memento black ink across the centre of the panel to match the sketch and I was done.
I loved her layout and colour scheme, that pink really makes that flower pop off the card. I’m on a roll with making Christmas cards, so used Michelle’s layout and colour scheme for my card. I used the tree from the Altenew set ‘Sketched Evergreen’ inked up with Stampin Up Pink Pirouette, Lovely Lipstick and Basic Black. I added a little strip of black and white DSP on the base and a bit of black and white twine on the top for balance.
My last card for the day is another sketch based card this time from CAS Colours & Sketches.
I was inspired to make another Christmas card for my stash using a set from Simon Says Stamp called ‘Christmas Squad’. I stamped the Santa and hearts then coloured them with my alcohol markers. Fussy cut them out, added some puffy paint for the fur on Santa’s suit and some diamond glaze to the hearts. Popped them up with dimensionals and added the sentiment and my card was done.
Thanks for looking and have a great day.
