Great sketch!...Yeah, I know I always write that, but I love almost all of them. This is my second card for this sketch. The other card did not really follow the sketch so I decided a do-over was in order. Image and sentiment are from Unity. The striped paper is from Cosmo Cricket. Three posts from me in one day...and it was my Sunday to work.
The current challenge at Cards In Envy is to creat a card using your punches or dies. Now I just love my punches so this card was easy peasy. I used my diamond and snowflake punches to create the poinsettia. A little foam was used to add a little dimension. I need a couple of thank you cards for work so these will be perfect. Most of the papers are DCWV.

Thanks to Penny Ward, there is another great sketch this week on the OWH blog! The Hero Arts stamp was one that I had not yet inked. My next step was to go to the Bo Bunny pack and I decided the paper with stamps would be a good fit. The only glitch was the paper is visually busy which is why I tweaked the measurements.
Two years ago my parent celebrated their 50 years together and I have known several other couples that have reached this amazing milestone since that time. That was my inspiration for this card. I used gold core'dinations paper as the base. The heart stamp maker is unknown. It is heat embossed in gold and then Glossy Accents was added where it was not embossed.
I am also linking this up to this week's OWH MWT: Dry Embossing
Happy First Anniversay Addicted to CAS!!!

This week's challenge is to make an Any Hero Card. I had purchased some buttons from JoAnn's a long time ago and decided this was the perfect opportunity to use one. Since this card will not be put through a postal meter, I don't have to worry anout the Hero popping off. Sentiment is by Paper Smooches. CAS all the way on this one.
I am posting this sketch card a little late because I originally made a nice card but it did not really follow the sketch so back to the drawing board. My week kinda got away from me after that. This card features a K&Co chipboard sticker and papers from The Paper Studio. ps...I thought Dixie's card was uber yummy...gorgeous ribbon and layering!

Cards in Envy has a new challenge for cards that feature a sentiment. Sometime ago I created this little sentiment so I could practice Copic coloring on something simple. I have to admit that the card I ended up with looks nothing like what I planned for when I started. The star paper is Bo Bunny. I am also linking this up to this month's Bootcamp topic of Balance in Design. Most of the cards I create are asymmentrical so it was super fun to create a radial design; I have always wanted to do something like this. My inspiration was a digi designed by Matt Anderson at Paper Crafts Magazine.
Great sketch as always with an awesome group of samples...Way To Go Doodle Pantry! The Paper Studio had this fun "manly" paper pad that I just could not resist even though I own way too much as it is. The typewriter set from Stampin' Up seems like a perfect match so I inked it up. I did a little tweaking to the measurements because of the many layers in the card.

The first card was made for the ODBD. The chalkboard technique was used on the heart (no name stamp) embellie. Paper by Paper Studio and Colorbok. Sentiment is computer generated.
Second card is for the MWT:Stars and uses scraps. Sentiment is Studio G which I colored with Copics. The star is blinged up with Liquid Pearls.
