So today I was in charge of the sketch over at Paper Craft Planet and it is a fun one. I actually saw it from PageMaps Card Maps by Becky Fleck. You should sign up for the emails from there, she has some great ideas.
Make sure you make a card using this sketch and upload it over at the Planet. Please remember to tag your card exactly like this: sk011009 and then I will snag the cards or projects throughout the week and add them to the album, that way you can see what everyone came up with. I hope we do Becky's original sketch proud.
Here is my card. Now I will admit, I showed this card a month or so ago, but it so cute.
Stamp Set: Riley Couch
Paper: Basic Black, Real Red, Brocade Blue, Neenah White, Ski Slope Designer Series paper
Ink: Palette Hybrid Noir pad, Copic markers
Misc: Metallic eyelets, black hemp, word window punch, chit chat rub-ons, swiss dot cuttlebug folder.
Paper: Very Vanilla, Pacific Point, Basic Black, Watercolor Paper, Muirfield DSP (I am gonna miss this paper)
Ink: Jet Black Stazon, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, White Craft
Misc: Vanilla Hodgepodge (another New Years Resolution – same as a lot of you that answered my question for the blog candy) I will not horde anymore!, embossing folder, Kiwi Kiss/Vanilla Satin ribbon, Trio Flower punch, Designer Label punch
I just changed the colors and turned it upside down.
I did not intend to turn it upside down, but I did not know how to do my greeting on the stripes without it getting lost, since the paper has the dark stripes, and I was not liking the satin ribbon on the vanilla, and vanilla taffeta was not making me happy either, so then I thought to turn it upside down and I liked the satin ribbon on the stripes. Then I pulled out my vanilla hodgepodge and thought that would work and voila'! Looks nice eh? Just goes to show you I do not always know what I am doing when I start out, and sometimes I will finish a card, add my embellishments, and then post it and someone will say, "I love how the brads have the dots that goes with the embossing folder and the paper" and I will look at it and go ' oh yeah!" I know not what I do most of the time. Maybe I am channeling someone when I stamp…..ohmmmmm……ohmmmmm……..
I so love the embossing folders on the white and the vanilla (well I like them in general on all colors), in fact it makes it looks richer when it is embossed. The vanilla looks like milk…maybe like curdles of milk floating in a glass. Eric just brought out the brand new un-opened jug of milk and it says best by TODAY!!! What!!! I always check the date, how did that happen? I don't want to throw it out, I am sure it is ok…where the heck is a skunk sprayed dog when you need 'em? Oh wait…that's tomato juice.
I hope you have a great Saturday, and thanks for stopping in!
