CASe a Sentiment Sketch


I used to think I would never use dies...now I love using them, and wish large ones were more available.  For this Cas(e) this Sketch challenge, I used a piece of designer black and white paper and three layers of the Happy diecut and a tiny decorative brad.

One Layer Dots



A metal stencil and Distress Oxide inks created the "dotty" one layer card for #420 Less is More.  The sentiment is from Dyan Reavely.

Color Throwdown for a Special Birthday


When this popped up in my e-mail, I was immediately in love with the colors!  And I just happened to need to make a birthday card for my youngest sister today.   I started with the colors, of course.  Although I was in love with stripes, my black and white paper pads don't include stripes.  Polka dots, yes!  Choosing a sentiment was next; I don't have many beyond the "Happy Birthday" ones.  The Emerson quote on a Wordsworth stamp seemed fitting.  To make the card decidedly feminine, I added the butterfly for the Color Throwdown challenge.

Fusion Card


I loved the colors in the inspiration piece of the Fusion Card Challenge, so I pulled out brushes, water and some watercolors. The sentiment is from Wordsworth.

Freshly Made Hugs


I'm trying to get back to some card challenges after my 50-day-cardmaking for Covid 19. I'm getting in just under the wire, too!   Freshly Made Sketch 434.

Tired of Covid 19

Every day for 50 days, I made a card with some kind of sentiment appropriate for the "lockdown."  Finally, I essentially ran out of ideas, so I'm trying card challenges again.  My first non-Covid card is for Case This Sketch 371.  




During this lockdown, I've been buying pads of patterned papers....several pads of paper.  The front layer of this card is a sheet from Adalelne Craft Papers (PolkaDoodles) purchased from Simon Says. 
The DaVinci die is a new one from Simon Says (Memory Box). "Joy" is an old SU! stamp.

Covid Cards....more

I deleted the previous post after realizing that I had posted duplicate cards.  I think I can catch up now.
