My Sketch World - Card 2

I again used the July Card Sketch from My Sketch World for my card today.



I made an oversized tag as I wanted more of my image to show on the tag and used watercolor paper.


After stamping my image in Versa Mark and heating setting the black embossing powder I started coloring my image.  I started with the lightest pink working to the darker pink, then added the lightest purple and darkest purple on the flower.


I did the same thing with the greens, then colored the light glue around the flower. I added the eyelet and bow and made an envelop pocket for my card.


I wrapped some embroidery yarn around my envelope, added the flower and pearl along with the stamped sentiment to finish off the envelope of the card. A few pearls on the top right of the tag to correspond to the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by.

My Sketch World - card sketch

My Sketch World is back making card and scrapbooking sketches.  The July sketch is up on the blog and her facebook group.



I used my July Counterfeit Kit - Mix and Match to make my card. I pulled out the Stampin' Up Papers using the backside. I stamped the feather onto white cardstock that was trimmed down into a tag shape, made an envelope out of gray cardstock to tuck it into.


I added a button in place of the flower and a few enamel dots for the flowers on top.

Stop by Lucy's blog My Sketch World for the full reveal.

Sympathy Card

I need a sympathy card today. So I pulled out my June Counterfeit Kit - It's the Little Things.  I started by looking through the 6x6 paper pad I included in my kit to get some inspiration.

 
I pulled out four different sheets that I thought I might use on the card -

pink variegated paper, multi colored swatch paper, dark blue with light blue plus signs and a white with gold embossed pattern. After cutting into a couple of them I decided I would use the pink variegated paper for my card. I used Bazzill Vanilla cardstock for my base and cut a smaller panel for the embellishment.

 
I added a few of the flowers from the ephemera pack that I included in my kit. Since there was gold in the flowers I pulled out a scrap of gold cardstock and the leaf dies to cut a couple of leaf sets for the front of my card.
 
All of the edges are inked with gathered twigs and the sentiment is black soot.  I stamped a few of the flowers onto the envelope and embossed with gold embossing powder.


For the inside of the card I used a white mat to write on - just because it's easier to read, then added a strip of the pattern paper down the side, a couple of gemz and another flower piece to the bottom of the card.

Alamo

I had cut into a couple of my papers from the June Counterfeit Kit - It's the Little Things so I thought I try to use up some of the bits and pieces on these layouts.


The background paper is  Bo Bunny - Down By the Sea "Lagoon". I used a scratch piece of paper to cut the triangles out then traced them my oldest son's  layout since his is  12x12 also.

For the top cluster I cut a tag down to fit the spot then added my title Alamo San Antonio Texas, a wood veneer camera back with paper, a stamped travel  icon that reads right here, enamel dots and the green ric rac which is actually a paper ribbon .

For the guy's layout I didn't have another sheet of the Bo Bunny - Down By the Sea "Lagoon" so I pulled out this journal paper from We R Memory Keepers - Typecast for their layouts.



I'm using up some really old alphabet stickers and that entails using a different set on each page as I don't have enough letters for all three pages. I used a die on this page using only the lower case letters and the Jillibean Soup mini alphas for the date.
