TSOT Sketch #113

Hi Lovelies,

Today  I have another wonderful sketch from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  I really enjoy sketches as you all know, there are so many different ways to use them don't you think.  I love seeing what my fellow DT members do with these sketches as well as all of you.  Sometimes I think "Darn it - why didn't I think to do that!".

When I saw this sketch I just knew I wanted to do something special with that bottom design on the sketch.  I have been using a duck die (from Cuttlebug kids) to make decorations for an upcoming baby shower for Emsy's teacher.  Which further inspired me to create this cute card. 

It's a very simple card, I used Bazzil & a scrap of white c/s to create this card.  I used my trusty/rusty Cuttlebug to emboss the bottom of the card as well as for the duck & for the sentiment.  I clear embossed the button on the sentiment & because there isn't a lot of stamping on this card I also stamped the white c/s.  I used Diamond Glaze & Blue Ice Glitter on the D'vine Swirls.

This next card I made after I was inspired by the papers.  I found some leftover ribbon that matches the pp behind the stamped image.  I originally stamped the golfer on a square of Copic paper but after I started colouring him in I managed to get some Copic smudges where I didn't want them (so hate that).  But because my colouring was pretty good (for me) I decided to cut him out.  I then used Distress Inks to colour watercolour paper, before putting foam adhesive on the image placing him on the paper.  I also fussy cut out the speech bubble & placed foam adhesive behind it as well.

I really  love how one sketch can inspire two completely different cards.  I can't wait to see what you all create & please don't forget to leave my fellow DT members some love as well.  Happy crafting everyone.

Just gorgeous Paula. The first one is a sweetie and I love the second one. The colouring is awesome.

Both are great Paula. I'm sure that Emsy's techer is going to love her card. Hugs.

Both of your cards are fabulous!! I love the swirl on the bottom of your 1st card and your colouring is really good on your golfer! :)
