Sending Sunshine with Jessica!

Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current sketch challenge! I decided to be a little more abstract with the challenge this time…here’s what I created! 😉

To start I die-cut the Stitched Trails hearts onto a piece of Moonstone cardstock to represent the hearts in the sketch. Then I die-cut the sun from Spring Showers with Sunflower cardstock and blended a little Spiced Marmalade Distress oxide ink onto the edges for the large circle of the sketch. I also die-cut the Puffy Cloud Border and Stitched Hillside Border from white cardstock.

Next I die-cut the Forest Border from white cardstock and blended Cracked Pistachio and Evergreen Bough Distress oxide ink over it. Then I die-cut the Little Town Border from Raspberry cardstock and adhered tiny squares of Fog cardstock behind the houses for the windows and doors. The hills, houses, forest, and clouds represent the lines of the sketch. Next I stamped the sentiment from Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters onto black cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered the layers together and tucked the sun behind the forest. Finally I adhered the sentiment with foam mounting tape to finish the card.

And that’s it! You have two more weeks to get crafty and I can’t wait to see how the sketch inspires you! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous week!


An Interactive Be Hap-pea Card with Grace!

Grace created a clever interactive pop-up based on the Card Sketch for Challenge 51! Her Be Hap-pea design will inspire you to think outside the box!

Grace made a pull tab card using the Let’s Toast Pull Tab Add-On! The Be Hap-pea peas and pea pod along with the birthday balloons from Bicycle Built for You pop up into the puffy cloud-filled sky!

Grace added acetate strips behind the balloons to give them more stability.
