Wednesday Sketch ~ Stampin’ Up! ~ Peaceful Nativity

Hello there friends…

I have a challenging Wednesday Sketch to share with you. i created a square card following the layout of the sketch. Anytime you are using a sketch for inspiration remember you can rotate or substitute anything so just let your mind go and create something beautiful!!!

 

My husband loves nativities as I do so this card he really liked. He has said that he plans on making a card for two sweet friends of ours that have been like mothers to us. I told him I would help if he really wanted to. I will post them if and when it happens. HaHa!

I have colored the nativity scene using my Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. If you enjoy coloring and love the look of nice blends from light to dark then these will be perfect for you. They are great for beginners as well as advanced colors.

I have combined a couple extra die sets along with the Peaceful Nativity stamp set. I added in the Stitched Stars to represent the banner in the sketch. Then I actually stamped the nativity onto a piece of Whisper White card stock die cut from the “Celebration Labels” die set. All items used to create this card are linked below.

Wednesday Sketch ~ Ornate Gardens Suite

Today we are going to focus, not only on a sketch, but also on creating Fall themed cards. The Ornate Garden Suite by Stampin’ Up! was perfect for this theme. I immediately grabbed the Ornate Thanks stamp set because I had not yet used the beautiful bold sentiments from this set so this was perfect for these designs. Lets take a look at the suite.

 

 

I have created two cards using this sketch. Both a horizontal and a vertical design. The papers from the Plaid Tidings 6×6″ pad are really striking with bold colors for both fall and winter and beyond.

 

 

 

For the first card below I have used the Ornate Style Stamp set for the sweet little flower stamp and I have colored them with Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers. The “Thank You” stamp is from the coordinating stamp set titled “Ornate Thanks” in this suite of products. This suite includes BOTH stamp sets along with other coordinating items. CLICK HERE to see the entire suite.

 

Both samples also use the Stitched so Sweetly Die set.  If you have not see the Ornate Layers Dies which are part of the Suite you will want to check those out because they are beautiful and are part of a bundle with the stamp set if your not wanting to get the entire suite. See all the options below.

For the second sample I have added in the Shaded Spruce trees from the In The Pines Stamp set. along with the Stitched Shapes Die set

Wednesday Sketch ~ 4 designs from 1 sketch!!!

 

 

 

Hello Friends!

Welcome back to Wednesday Sketch. I had A LOT of FUN with this clean and simple sketch because I usually do not do “Clean and Simple” but I love how these turned out.

 

This first sample I featured the “Stitched Nested Labels” Dies to create the center focal. The stamp set used for the sentiment came from the “Country Home” stamp set. As always the supply list is below.

 

This second sample is probably my favorite. I am featuring the “Whale Done” stamp set. I just love to color scheme. I think I will saved this one for my grandson’s second birthday. The focal was created using the “Stitched So Sweetly” die set. Are you seeing a theme here???

My Sending Healing Hugs card features the “Layering Ovals” die set…. I have also embellished it using the Bumblebee Gingham ribbon…. SO CUTE!!!

 

Last but not least is this card featuring the “Layering Circles” die set. If you look closely you will also see that this card’s layout is changed around a little from the sketch.

So my 4 projects I have designed all feature the “Playing with Patterns” designer paper and each uses a different layering die set that Stampin’ Up! carry. I use these sets all the time and they are truly staples in my stash. Want them all? Check out the offer below.
