STAR FRAMELITS WINDOW CARD

HEY BLOGGIES,

Today I have a card that I made using my SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY sketch. I created the sketch before I realized that 3 of the framelits cannot make it all the way down the card diagonally. So of course I had to change it up a bit.

Here is my sketch for this week:


And here is my card.

 I used cherry cobbler and daffodil delight cvard stock.  Then I used cajun craze, pumpkin pie and cherry cobbler inks to both sponge and stamp the layer behind the stars, as well as the front of the card.

 I used a bitty star punch for the two little stars of daffodil delight,  The red button is from the brights collection of buttons.
I created the banner myself by scoring two places on each end of the strip of paper and then cutting a flag on both ends.

Hope you enjoyed my card and my sketch this week.  Won't you create a card and share it with us on SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY CHALLENGE?

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY TO ALL!!

HEY BLOGGIES,

I hope you are planning some fun family time on this long holiday weekend.  Using the Sketch Frenzy Friday Sketch below, I made a card with a 4th of July feel.  Here is this weeks sketch:


And here is my card:

 I used a red, white and blue color theme to go along with the stars I featured on my card.  The wonderful new Star Framelits enabled me to cut out the largest star from my red cardstock, and also to cut that into a smaller star to add back in.

 I created my background "designer paper" by using the middle of a flower stamp and repeatedly stamping it in red and blue all over the background to look like fireworks exploding.

Here you can see more of the background paper I created as it peeks out from the die cut star in the middle of my card.  I added some sequins and some printed vellum for accents and as one of the layers on my middle star.  I also used the small star punch from the punch pack to create the smallest star.

I hope you enjoyed my patriotic thank you card.  I used the French "thank you" for my sentiment just for a bit of whimsy.  I have made several of these cards to give to my customers this month as my thank you for selecting me as their demonstrator.

Place an order with me and I will be happy to send a thank you card to you, too.

Thank you for stopping by.  Won't you stop at our Sketch Frenzy Friday blog and see what the other design team members have created for you?  And we would LOVE to see YOUR creation also.

Happy 4th!!

LAND THAT I LOVE .... INDEPENDENCE DAY CARDS

HEY BLOGGIES,

Are you getting ready for some baseball, picnics, fireworks and fun with friends and family??  So am I!!

I wanted to share a card I made with my friend and downline, Tammy M.  We used WORK OF ART stamp set and a few special surprises as well:

 We used real red and Night of Navy card stock, also whisper white.  We did something a little bit lagnappe or "unexpected" - we used a star stencil and some moon pearl embossing powder BEFORE we stamped with the navy ink for the star part of the flag.  Isn't it awesome??!!  I LOVE how it turned out.

 If you decide to make one of these cards, make sure you make both a stencil and a mask for the blue part because first you use the stencil part so you just emboss that area, then you stamp it with the navy inked stamp.  then you use the mask part to cover up the navy part so the red won't get there when you stamp the stripes.  I hope I have said that clearly so you can make one of these FUN cards too!!


See anything else that fits LAGNAPPE or "unexpected"?  YES, that is a silver eagle head charm on the sentiment.  AND YES those are mini star sequins on the left of the sentiment.  Just too little special somethings to make you do a double take.  Speaking of a double take, see the boo-boo I did right below the blue stars field?  I tapped my stripe stamp a second time into the wrong ink pad.  I thought I thumped it into the real red but NOOOO, it was the navy pad by mistake.

Well, things happen and life goes on.  But this wonderful country is LAND OF THE FREE AND HOME OF THE BRAVE.  Thanks to all those who serve us by helping to keep our beautiful America FOREVER FREE.

Stamp set:  Work of Art, alphabet set
Ink:  Real Red, Night of Navy
Card stock:  Real Red, Night of Navy
Other:  mini star sequins, silver eagle charm

I would love to hear your comments on our fun and patriotic card.  Won't you take just a moment and leave a comment for me?

Have a wonderful holiday weekend.
