2 Sketches 4 You

Okay there is a fun and inspirational blog called 2 Sketches 4 You, every week they do a sketch and inspire bloggers to create cards from their pattern. Here is what I created using this week's sketch and the Magnolia Collection, which will be the new kit coming out July 1 at See this month's feature Collection.

Happiness Card

Here I used the same colours again but substituted the brown dot for the green dot cardstock. I used the plain back side of the green and versamarked the swirl stamp for a subtle background.

Happy Birthday Card

Here we are again with the same colours, this time such a simple card, I used a white gel pen to give a stitched look to a strip of card stock. I've also been adding dots to the flower after it's been stamped.

Thank you card

Here I used the Beachy Keen Collection with the simple addition of "Cameo Coral" Ink from Stampin Up to colour the flower and Thank you, I've given a whole different look to the papers that came in the kit, by just combining them with this pink. I used my 1" circle punch to create the orange scallop below the chocolate dot brown strip, a white gel pen for stitching and foam dots to give the flower some dimension.

Stampin Up! Party

I went to another great Stampin Up party with demonstrator Lynda James, she had us make two wonderful cards so I though I would share. I was also at a Close to My Heart party last week and hopefully I can find what I did with the card we made because I wanted to post it too (I also wanted to use it for Father's Day...).

Card Exchange

Here is the "Warm Wishes" card I made for a local card exchange, the theme was a pocket card. They're not due until the end of June, so if anyone is interested in joining, there is still time. How it works is you make 7 cards that are all the same then you get 7 different cards back!

Sand Castles

Here there were too many mis matched colours in the clothing in the photo so I decided to focus in on the background for the colour pallet for my page. That's one great thing about having a stamp set in the kit, because the blue colour of the water wasn't in the patterned paper of this collection, so I created my own with one of the flowers. I used generation stamping here, started with dark blue and stamped 4 times without reinking in between to get lighter shades of the same colour. I used my stamp spot to dab ink on the chipboard words, I wanted it to be rough looking so I left some white peeking through in spots, it gives the look sand on the beach.

Congratulations Card

Here I took the blue dot cardstock and used my small circle punch to cut out a dozen circles, then I glued them around the circle or boarder edge and punched them with my crop-a-dile to give the unique scallop look you see here. I also used my Bo Bunny flex ruler to cut the striped paper leaving the white background showing, again I followed the curve and punched subtle holes with my crop-a-dile.

All Stuck Up and Beachy Keen

Here I used the flowers and brads from the All Stuck Up tins, it was so great to having matching flowers and brad so the centers of the flowers were all the perfect colours and sizes! Apple Green and Buttercup are the perfect match to this Beachy Keen Collection.

Beachy Keen is Online!

June's Collection is here, and with the promise of warm weather and sun that our summer months will bring, Created With Paper is offering a collection of papers and stamps that will be perfect to scrapbook your warm weather pics!
