Sketch Sunday: February 19, 2012

We hope you will enjoy the card sketch this week.

Some of our design team took the sketch challenge and want to share their cards with you.

First up we have a card from Jennifer Willis using the Frantic Stamper Cling-Mounted Rubber Stamp - Large Rose.

For her take on the sketch, Sharon Jeffs decided to create a rustic card with a country type feel. She used a soot stamping technique to stamp Frantic Stamper's Cling-Mounted Rubber Stamp - Pine #1, then also colored the patterned paper (Kaisercraft Vintage Timeless) using Distress inks and a soft dry brush technique.

Next we have a card from Kathy Berger. She used the Go Kreate! Sitting Boo die to create a bear and added a Go Kreate die cut frame to create the focal point of her card. (Kathy and Jane Larsson will have more to say about these dies in a product review this coming Thursday.) But what we think really made the card is the beautiful lace background, created by heat embossing detailed white embossing powder on an image stamped with the Frantic Stamper Cling-Mounted Rubber Stamp - Lace Background! It really looks like lace and gives a perfect soft touch to this baby card.

Next, Linda Phinney used the elements of the layout in a portrait orientation instead of a landscape to make her lovely stamp-free card. Using Hot Off the Press Floral Boutique 3-D paper tole foil die cuts and foam tape, she created a wonderful dimensional focal point for her card. With just the right touch of bling this card really stands out, don't you agree?

And lastly, we have a beautiful card from Jane Larsson. She used the gorgeous Frantic Stamper Cling-Mounted Rubber Stamp - Peacock Pair, colored with Copic Sketch markers for the focus of her card.

We hope you have enjoyed this sketch and our DT interpretations of it. We hope you will be inspired to create something of your own with our sketch. If you do, please share it with us! Just email your photo to and we'll add it to this blog entry.
