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.
