Check out the cards from yesterday’s post too. I used the same sketch on those cards also.
This card was inspired by a card that I saw a while ago and have been saving to use at some point. I don’t know who the original artist was….but it really caught my eye and I loved the punched out circle idea.
I just shifted the circles to the opposite side of the card. and added some stamped flowers instead of the store bought flowers on the original. I used a Crumb Cake card base and a Whisper White layer on top. I used the 1-3/4″ and 1″ circle punches (p.182). I used the Flowering Flourishes stamp set (p.118) to create the images on the card base. I embossed the White layer with the Polk Dot embossing folder (p.191) and added some rhinestones too. I used the A Round Array stamp set (p.126), Pumpkin Pie ink, the Itty Bitty punch pack (p.180), and rhinestones to create the flower accents on the card. I added a banner with the Teeny Tiny Wishes (p.44) sentiment, as the final element on this card. This is another card that was inspired by a card that I just loved. The original card was made by Melissa Davies, and I really loved how she used the Label Love stamp set (p.33) and punched out the centers for an interesting look.I changed the orientation of the card and went from 4 to 3 labels to follow the card sketch. I used a Smokey Slate card base, as she did, and embossed it with the Fancy Fan embossing folder (p.191). I used the Papillon Potpourri stamp set (p.90) and the Bitty Butterfly Punch (p.183) to make the butterflies. I embossed the butterflies with white embossing powder. I added 3 little flowers with rhinestones in Crisp Cantaloupe and punched with the Itty Bitty punch pack (p.180), and a bow tied with White Baker’s Twine (p.173). Finally, a banner was added with the white embossed Happy Birthday from the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set (p.16). Lovely card….thanks, Melissa, for the great idea!This was my Make-n-Take card at my stamp clubs last weekend. I used a Whisper White card base and layered Island Indigo, Silver Glimmer paper punched with the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch (p.181), Smokey Slate, and a piece of DSP from the Winter Frost paper stack (p.29 in the Holiday catalog). I stamped 3 ornaments from the Christmas Collectables stamp set and punched them out with the coordinating Christmas Ornament punch (p.35 in the Holiday catalog). These two products can be purchased as a bundle too, and you save 15% if you bundle them. Great deal! I added a 1/2″ circle (p.182) of silver Glimmer paper to the center ornament, and a snowflake image punched from the center of one of the ornaments. This really made that ornament have a great dimensional effect AND the glimmer paper added a beautiful shimmer to the card.
So, there you have it….just think in 3’s and create a card using this versatile sketch. I hope you got a little inspiration today, and will get out your stamps and create your own version of this sketch. Thanks for looking!
