Sketch Sunday - April 2013

This is the sketch for the month of April. The design team members have made some cards using this simple sketch, and would like to share them with you today. We hope that you will be inspired to make a card of your own. If you do, please share by leaving us a link to your card in the comments.


Deco Vases
by Sharon Jeffs

I really wanted to do something a bit different with this sketch so I chose to change it slightly and create it with clear acetate elements.  The base of my card is a sheet of clear acetate that I then layered onto.  The centre has been decorated with a Frantic Stamper rubber stamp called 'Deco Vases'.

What Do You Sea?
by Kathy Berger

This card is a single-single layer card made by reverse-masking a circle (made with a circle Nestabilities die) and stamping the Frantic Stamper Mermaid stamp inside the circle. The image was colored with Inktense watercolor pencils and sponged on ink, and then the whole card front was debossed using the ?? Cuttlebug embossing folder

Three 1/4" circles were punched from a piece of scrap card to which some of the same washi tape was added. They were shaped using a stylus to form faux brad heads, which were then affixed to the card with small dimensional glue dots. And lastly, the faux brad heads were covered with a bit of Glossy Accents, as were the bubbles in the mermaid image to give them added dimension and shine. Without drying time the card could have qualified as a Card, in 10 featured card!

A Rosey Birthday
by Jennifer Willis

For her card, Jennifer chose to use the Frantic Stamper Large Rose stamp and some BoBunny Serenity paper from the 6x6 paper pad. She stamped and colored her image and then fussy-cut it out, and mounted it on her circles. She finished the card off with a birthday greeting sticker.

by Lis Whiting

Lis chose to take a less-literal approach to the sketch. WIth a beautiful image and a bit of bling, we think her card is indeed timeless! She used Graphic 45 Bird Song and Bo Bunny Family Is- In Mischeif papers, Candi embellishments, and some beautiful Prima Crystals to make her creation.
