Sketch Sunday: June 3, 2012

Today we offer a truly simple sketch that elicits clean and simple design, and a return to the basics.

We hope you will enjoy the sketch and give it a try. A few of our design team members did, and here are there offerings.

First we have a lovely card from Linda Phinney. Linda used a piece she made using aluminum cut from a can, a Cuttlebug embossing folder (Floral Fantasy) and Vintaj Ranger Patina in Clay and the Vintaj Patina glaze.

Next we have two cards from Kathy Berger. The first card uses the Frantic Stamper Cling-Mounted Rubber Stamp - Strawberries colored with Copic markers, a small scrap of red patterned paper, and three small pearls to create a clean and simple card.

When Kathy was making the first card, the black strip on the red background reminded her of something else, and so this fun and extremely quick second card was created. Kathy didn't mind that it was a Christmas-themed card in June, since she thought that perhaps some readers might share her habit of making Christmas cards throughout the year to avoid a holiday crunch.

And lastly we have a fabulous masculine card by Jennifer Willis. She used the Frantic Stamper Cling-Mounted Rubber Stamp - Owl Postoid stamp colored with spectrum noir markers, and papers from the Basic Grey (What's Up Collection to create this simple yet incredibly striking card.

If you are inspired to create a card with this sketch, please send a quality photo to and we will add it to this post.
