This time it’s a sketch challenge. The design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here.

Sketch challenges can be interpreted in so many ways.

This is my project….. And no stamping!

Some black glittered Organdy ribbon was tied in to a bow and added to the middle to hide the join between the papers.

A 2 inch panel of DSP was cut and layered on to Basic Black card stock and added to the card with dimensionals.

A die cut dragonfly and sentiment was then adhered to the card.

Beautiful Birthday

Hello Everyone,

I just love a sketch challenge…. They really help me to think about fresh card designs that I wouldn’t normally use. This one is from my lovely friend Gez.

The circle made want to use a Doily, though rather than using premade embellishments I made my own with the Painted Glass bundle.

I also wanted to use vellum in the design. I cut this down and rounded opposite corners.

I tried lots of different DSP designs to go behind the vellum. I settled on this black & white pattern from the Botanical Butterfly collection available in the Sale-a-bration offer.

I stamped the sentiment and die cut butterflies from the Painted Glass set.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

For His Birthday

Hello Everyone,

Today’s project combines a couple of Facebook challenges, a sketch and and a theme.

I decided to use these grungy papers, couldn’t resist the map!

I used a black card base to let the colours of the design stand out.

Each banner was cut by hand, though the triple banner punch would have done the trick too.

I took the sentiment from the Birthday Cheer set and punched this with a 1-1/2 inch circle.
