Sketch Sunday: March 4, 2012

We hope you will enjoy today's simple sketch and the cards from our design team that it inspired. This week we feature cards from all of the full-time 2012 Design Team members.

Here is Jane's card using Frantic Stampers cling mounted stamp Lady w/ cane, stamped on vellum.

Isabelle chose a Riley image, Snowball Riley, for her card and turned the sketch on its side. Don't you just love the slightly ruched ribbon on the curve?

Kathy chose to do a literal interpretation of the sketch (what else is new?) using the Frantic Stamper Cling-Mounted Stamp Stem Rose (colored with Copic markers) and Frantic Stamper lace background cling stamp. Dimensional rose stickers and a bit of stickles finishes the card.

Kathy also turned the sketch on its side and swapped the proportions to create this "supportive" card. She colored a Penny Black image Uplifting Occasion with Copic markers and matted it on light blue card stock. The image itself had all the elements of the sketch!

Jennifer made a card using the Frantic Stamper Large Rose Cling Mounted Stamp. She stamped it multiple times in sepia ink, and then added sponged-on color to create her own designer paper.

Linda stamped a card using the Kissing Couple cling mounted stamp from Frantic Stamper. The little wire detail on the border between her background colors is fabulous, don't you agree? And we all are impressed with her scissor skills in cutting out the couple!

Sharon's card uses the Vertical Rose cling mounted stamp from Frantic Stamper. We love how the shape of the die she used provided both the curve and the interest points on the curve all at once. Of course the pearl bling really makes it all stand out!

And now, here is a card from one of our readers, Marcelle Roberts.
