Welcome to this month's Blog Hop. My demonstrator friends and I are featuring another sketch challenge! Sketches help me quickly focus on creating versus designing the layout. Did you know sketch challenges don't have to be followed exactly as shown? They are to inspire you, so going "outside the box" is acceptable and even encouraged.
I am featuring the limited-time products: the Blended Seasons Stamp Set and the Stitched Seasons Framelits. I created four different seasonal cards to share with you. The color scheme I chose was Gray Granite and Whisper White, with a pop of seasonal color for each card.
This autumn/fall card's pop of color is Cajun Craze Cardstock and Ink.
The leaf framelit has two coats of Wink of Stella on it and a piece of the Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon on the stem.
This Christmas card's pop of color is Poppy Parade Cardstock, along with Gray Granite Ink.
The images are colored with the Poppy Parade and Old Olive Stampin' Blends Combo Packs. Wink of Stella is added to the holly leaves. Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added to some holly berries. Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon and leaf framelits from Vellum Cardstock finish off this card.
This spring/floral card's pop of color is Flirty Flamingo Cardstock and Ink, along with Gray Granite Ink.
The images are colored with the Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends Combo Packs. Wink of Stella is added to the flowers. The Share What You Love Artisan Pearls were added to the center of the flowers. Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon and leaf framelits from Vellum Cardstock finish off this card.
This wedding card's pop of color is Highland Heather Cardstock and Marker, along with Gray Granite Ink.
The bell images were colored with the Light Highland Heather Stampin' Blends, with a touch of Wink of Stella to highlight them. Leaf framelits cut from both Vellum and Highland Heather Cardstock (attach together with a Fine-Tip Glue Pen) were added to two corners. Pearl Jewels accent the two bells and the Vellum swirls. Whisper White 1/8" Sheer Ribbon finishes off this card.
It was so enjoyable to create these four cards to share with you. I hope you are inspired by the sketch challenge to create a few projects!
