Try Stampin' on Tuesday sketch #112

Hi Lovelies,

Today I am back to share with you all the latest cards I have made for Try Stampin' on Tuesday's latest sketch.  I have made two cards & flipped the sketch for one.  I just love how versatile sketches are.



I must admit I did miss part of the sketch when I made the leaf birthday card.  I didn't see the line going down the sketch on the left of the card.  So had to scramble to make the card "right".  Unfortunately it didn't go to plan, I'm thinking I actually like the card before I added the leaves.  Oh well such is life.  I had the large leaf already stamped on some pp & decided it was just right to use for a "Guy" birthday card.  I then found a heap of scraps that I could use behind it.  I love when scraps get used, as I feel like I'm not wasting them & half the time people don't know that is what they are, which is even better.


On my second card I flipped the sketch, just for fun.  I wanted to make a kid's birthday card this time as I still don't have a lot of them at the moment.  I inked up a never before used stamp, coloured it with Copics & tried to match the balls to the colour of the banner pp.  I think that this is colour "neutral" enough that it could be for a little boy or girl.  Once again I mainly used scraps of pp to make this card.  I also added Stickles to the asterisks & balls just for fun.  I really love that sentiment as well - think I will be using it again.

Don't forget to stop by Try Stampin on Tuesday to leave some love for the other DT members.  As they do some amazing work.  Have a wonderful day everyone.
