Hello friends! Happy Monday! I’m here with this weeks sketch challenge at From The Heart Stamps. These are great challenges because you can use just the sketch, or if you’d like, add the twist. The only requirement is that you use a From The Heart image and the sketch – the rest is up to you. The twist for this challenge is to finish the inside of the card. Faith provides an inspiration board that you can follow. As a guest designer, I’ve also created some inspiration. Hope I’ll see some of your creations using Sketch #87.
I used only the sketch for my inspiration today with For the Birds digital image colored with Copic markers. The paper is Lawn Fawn “Snow Day”. Circle dies are My Favorite Things and snowflakes are from Simon Says Stamp.
It’s Monday Folks and time for another Cards in Envy Challenge Post. This is one of my personal favorites because it’s about being Thankful. Thanksgiving is a so special to me. A time when family got together and enjoyed some really great times. Now that I’ve moved 3,000 miles away from all my family I sure miss that, but still hold this time very sacred. The “Thankful” challenge will run through Sunday, November 30th. Your card can include anything related to being thankful as long as it fits into a standard A2 card. Winners will be chosen by the Design Team and featured on the Cards in Envy blog.
How about some inspiration? I am using an adorable image by Mo Manning called, “Fall Fairy Jesen”. I colored him with Copic Markers and decided to make a different shape card that would still fit into an A2 envelope. I used several dies on the card including: Large Flower Circle die is: Spellbinders, Flag and circle dies are My Favorite Things, leaves are from Paper Smooches. I rounded the edges using my crop-a-dile and the card base was stamped with a leaf image from my stash. The design paper is Authentique’s from last year that I edged the circle with antique Linen distress ink. I finished the card with both ribbon and hemp and cut a Simon Says Stamp banner to place the sentiment. Hope you like it!
