Welcome to my blog!
Today I’m hopping along with the Let’s Get Hopping team & our theme this month is One Sketch, Two Cards. You would have arrived here from the talented Mikaela Titheridge or starting with me. Either way, be sure to hop all the way around to see the amazing creations from everyone’s sketch choices.
When I have to create multiple projects using one sketch, I like to keep it simple. It was taking me forever to find an existing sketch I liked on Pinterest so I kinda gave up haha 😅
But while I was creating my Thank You notes for my customers this month, I realised that I had the perfect sketch for this blog.
Here’s the sketch I designed…
And here are the cards I created using this sketch…
Images from both cards are from the Daisy Lane stamp set. Shall we take a closer look at the cards? Let’s start with the card that inspired the sketch…
I used Old Olive & stamped off once to create the fern background directly on the note card base. The focal point was stamped in Versamark ink then heat embossed with our silver embossing powder. The sentiment was also heat embossed with the silver embossing powder.
The bow is actually a strand of the flax ribbon. I initially used the Whisper White Baker’s Twine but the texture was too soft & didn’t look quite right. The single strand of flax ribbon gave it a more natural feel & coordinated with the image better 😊
Here’s the second card…
I embossed the Crumb Cake card base with the Basket Weave 3D embossing folder. For the focal piece, I stamped & punched the large daisy image three times. I inked up the stamp with Pineapple Punch then added Old Olive to the centre & Gorgeous Grape highlights using a sponge dauber.
The sentiment was heat embossed in our gold embossing powder & cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangle dies. I like the Terracotta Tile gingham Designer Series Paper with the Linen Thread. It made it have that earthy natural feel which coordinated well with the embossed background & the daisy.
I finished off the card by spritzing some Champagne Shimmer paint mixed with isopropyl alcohol. It’s hard to see in the photo but it’s so shimmery in real life 😍
I hope you enjoyed these two cards using the sketch that I created. I had lots of fun creating them & I hope you give this sketch a try today. Let’s hop over to the talented Eimear Carvill’s blog to check out her sketch & projects.
Until next time, sending you lots of crafty hugs! 😊
