A Quick Card for Sunday Stamps

 


When I saw the sketch for Sunday Stamps, I had a quick card in mind. As always, I am in love with Craft Papers' Inkdrops (Ocean series).  Also as always, I am limited in narrow horizontal sentiments.  (A search on Ebay didn't turn up anything.)  That means that I use the same sentiment multiple times.

Freshly Made in Kraft


 Kraft seemed to call to me when I looked at this Freshly Made Sketch challenge. I ended up creating a really busy card front,but was rather satisfied with the end result.

Black and White Less is More


I am really attracted to black and white cards, and the Less is More challenge gave me another opportunity to make one. One of the feathers in Gina K's new stamp/die set was just what I needed, too.

Sparkle!


Just add some sparkle to the card! That's the challenge for The Flower Challenge 72. Sparkle comes in various forms, but I really like Stickles...copper here.

Five in a Row


A very old little punch of maple leaves was perfect for the CAS Colours & Sketches challenge this week. I painted blotches of Twinkling H2O's and then punched the leaves from those samples.  (Did I actually make a fall card?)   



 

A Sunday Stamps Bee



Sometimes, I am put off by a variety of shapes in a sketch...at first, I felt that way about this Sunday Stamps sketch.  Then this bee image just popped up on my messy craft desk.  I've never used it before, but I could visualize it in the circle of the sketch.  Then I added some "honeycomb" patterned paper. 
 



 

Obsessed with Feathers

 I have quite a collection of feather images and dies, and I'm always finding more.  My latest acquisition is the "Fancy Feathers" kit from Gina K: a page of feather images and three dies to match.  After watching one of Gina K's videos which involved ink blending stencil images cut from the die outlines, I was really hooked.  These are the three cards I made almost immediately (inspired by Gina's video and Pinterest cards).
