Sketch Sunday - March 2013

This is our sketch for the month of March. We hope that you will use it to make a card of your own, and if you do, that you will share it with us by posting a link in the comments. But first we hope you will enjoy the cards our design team members made, inspired by the sketch.

Wishing Well
by Sharon Jeffs

Sharon chose to use her Wishing Well coloring project (March 1, 2013) to make the card for today's sketch. She added a few blossoms to stand in for the scalloped round element, and let the deep embossing of background layer take the place of the corner element.

Best Wishes
by Kathy Berger

Kathy's card uses a background paper by Kaisercraft, from the 6 1/2"x6 1/2" Secret Admirer paper pad, a strip of white card-stock cut with a Spellbinders Classic Scallop Edgeabilities die, a black card-stock butterfly die-cut with a Memory Box Vivienne butterfly die, and a stamp, Pixie, from FranticStamper's own line of cling-mounted rubber stamps. The pixie was colored with Copic Ciao markers, and then cut with the "out of the box" technique, with only the wings fussy-cut. The saying was stamped on a doily fussy-cut from another paper in the Kaisercraft pad that coordinates perfectly with the floral.

Happy St. Patty's Day
by Kathy Berger

Kathy made a second card, this time a rectangular take on the sketch, in celebration of St. Patrick's Day (today!).

This card uses a lace background stamp by FranticStamper, embossed in clear on a white card, and then sponged with Peeled Paint Distress ink. The shamrock was made by putting Washi tape onto a scrap of cardstock to make stripes, and then using a heart punch by Martha Stewart to punch 3 hearts.

The saying (source unknown) is stamped and punched with a 1.25" circle punch. The lacey strip across the bottom of the card is a Martha Stewart border punch and a strip of Washi tape. The upper left corner also sports a strip of Washi tape, plus a simple green bow.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! (By the way, Kathy is half Irish. Her paternal grandmother was Annie O'Brien, and her maternal grandfather was Henry Kirby. Does that only earn her half of a kiss?)

Dazzling Rose
by Lis Whiting

Lis chose to go with a rectangular card for her sketch card. She used a piece of the Hot Off the Press holographic ripple card stock in red and a Dazzles gold borders, both of which are pretty tough to photograph! The rose is from FranticStamper's own line of cling-mounted stamps. The window was cut with a FranticStamper Precision die .

Flower Coat Lady
by Jennifer Willis

Jennifer chose to use the Frantic Stamper - Flower Coat Lady Cling-mounted rubber stamp and Bo Bunny's Serenity paper to make her card. The Lady was colored with Copics and then fussy-cut and layered onto the tan panel.
