Card Sketch #12

You can download and print this sketch by clicking on the card sketches link found under the "printable sketches" tab on the right sidebar.

"Boo 2 U" card by Melissa Elsner
Supplies - Paper, die cuts, corrugated alpha: Jillibean Soup; Cardstock: Core'dinations; Letter Stickers: Echo Park Paper Co.

Variation #1: Overall, I stayed true to the measurements given for this sketch. For the top square, I cut out one of the frames from the Jillibean paper. It was the perfect size.

Variation #2: The cluster of embellishments on the sketch inspired me to do some fussy cutting. Those monsters were too cute to not include on this card!

Variation #3: I added some stitching to help bring it all together.

"Friendship" card by Amy Roller
Supplies - Cardstock: Stampin Up!; Stamps: Stampin UP!, Close To My Heart; Ink/Markers: Archival, Stampin Up!; Blender pen: Stampin Up!; Patterned paper: unknown; Ribbon: Micheals,; Glitter Accent: Stickles (Patina)

On this card I made everything 1" smaller because of the size of cardstock I was starting with. I layered my cardstock, paper and ribbon as follows: yellow/blue/pattern paper/ribbon/yellow/white and also used a border punch on the pattern paper piece. The ribbon is another variation instead of a striped paper.

I decided to use stamps directly on the layered cardstock rather than add a 3D embellishment and I used flowers and a butterfly instead of stars and swirls. Next I stamped my images and then colored them using five different colors. I then blended them with a blender pen to create a water colored look. I also added in some shading around the bottom of the pot and butterfly.

I stamped the flowers twice and colored the second image as well them cut out just a portion of the flowers and popped them up on top of the first image to add depth and detail.

Next I added Stickles to the center of each flower.

Last, I stamped my sentiment and matted it as well, placing it in the bottom left of the card.

"Happy Birthday" card by Carolyn Wolff

To celebrate National Cardmaking Day I decided to make a card.

Variation #1 – I matted the 4 squares with cardstock to pop them off the base of my card.

Variation #2 – I used a border punch and added ribbon for the striped strip running through the middle of my card.

Variation #3 – I made a 3-dimensional star and accented with smaller die-cut stars.

Variation #4 – I stamped the swirl using Versamark and then added Stickles to accent.

"Hello Friend" card by Christine Chain
Supplies - patterned paper: Echo Park, Jillibean Soup; letter stickers: American Crafts, Jillibean Soup; brads: Doodlebug Designs; rhinestones: Kaiser craft; flowers: Bazzill Basics

This was another fun card sketch from Allison at Sketch Support! I had a bunch of Jillibean and Echo Park scraps in my stash, begging to be put to good use. I picked out a few colors to go together and had some fun. The rhinestones were part of a circle that I cut apart so that I could have some flourishes for the flowers.

Amy your card is beautiful, love the flowers and sentiment.

Carolyn, Christine, Melissa, your cards are bright and fun. I like that your cards showed 4 different PP squares instead of just one.

Great job to all 4 of you!!
