Card Week, Part 5

Card Sketch #16

"I Mustache You a Question..." by Megan Bickers
Supplies Used - Cardstock: Georgia Pacific (White), Bazzill (Red); Patterned Paper: Making Memories (Kraft: White Mini Dot); Inks: Ranger Distress Inkpads (Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Pumice Stone), Tsukineko (Versamark: Clear); Stamps: Inkadinkado (Mustaches); Tools: Ranger (Foam Blending Tool), Fiskars (Real Estate Punch), WeR Memory Keepers (Sew Easy: Straight Stitch), Close To My Heart (Heat Tool); Markers: EK Success (Zig Black Writer: Brown and Black), Beifa (Calligraphy Marker: Black); Adhesive: Ranger (Glossy Accents), Recollections (Foam Squares); Other: Studio G (Fun Flock: Brown, Grey, Black), Stampin' Up (Heat and Stick Powder), White Crochet Thread, Ruler.

Variation #1: I used one row of images instead of a grid of images. I sewed down the row of mustaches with a single piece of string.

Variation #2: Instead of including my message directly on the card, I wrote the words on a punch shape and matted it with some red cardstock. Part of the saying is on the front of the card and the rest is on the inside.

Other things to note: I stamped the mustaches and used flock to make them more realistic. My saying was partially found on Pinterest, but I also added to it so that it would fit my Valentine's theme.

'Cootie Catcher messages' by Virginia Nebel
Supplies List - Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye; Embellishments: Kaiser Kraft rhinestone; Diecuts: Lifestyle Crafts

Variation #1: I took inspiration from the square pattern by creating an inter-active project that starts with a square piece of paper. I kept the stitching and heart theme on the outside.

Variation #2: Instead of the message(s) placed on the front of the project, all of them are hidden inside waiting to be revealed.

"I Love You" by Christy Arthur
Supply List - Patterned Paper: Lily Bee Design (Head over Heels Crush), October Afternoon (Sidewalks Marbles and Ring Around the Rosie); Embellishments: Crate Paper (Random Phrase Stickers), Hambly (Washi Tape); Stamps: My Minds Eye (Stella and Rose Hattie Remember), Lawn Fawn (Say Cheese); Ink: Jenni Bowlin (Weather Vane); Tools: Martha Stewart (Classic Butterfly Punch), Bazzill In Stitch Floss; Mist: Studio Calico (Mister Huey Piglet)

Variation #1: I made a diagonal row of hearts and only made one row.

Variation #2: I stitched a line through each of the hearts on the outside of the card. But, for the inside, I stitched around the heart to accent it.

Variation #3: I moved the message to the left side and added a butterfly embellishment.

Variation #4: I lined the top with washi tape.

Variation #5: For the outside hearts, I used the negative image and outlined it with mist to help it stand out. Then I added a smaller heart in the center.

"Snowflake" by Shari Thurman
Supplies - Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned paper and Sticker: Echo Park; Adhesive: ATG by Scotch; Ink: VersaColor; Thread: DMC; Tools: We R Memory Keepers Paper Piercer and Piercing Mat; Rhinestones: Kaiser Craft

Variation #1: I flipped the card sideways and used pattern paper as my background and inked around it with smoke blue ink.

Variation #2: Instead of stitching a grid with nine hearts, I started with a single snowflake and created diagonal lines from each of its points.

Variation #3: I embellished the snowflake with rhinestones.

Variation#4: I omitted the sentiment.
