Hope you’re not sick of the February kit yet, but here is another card using Sugar Sketch 20 rotated on it’s side. The circle die is My Favorite Things, the heart die is Simon Says Stamp, and the border die is Lawn Fawn. Everything else is from the SSS February Kit.
Happy Saturday! I’m finishing up my February Simon Says Stamp kit because the March kit is on it’s way! This kit has been one of my favorites and for this card I’m using the Operation Write Home Sketch 248. I’ve used several dies from My Favorite Things and Simon Says Stamp. The red heart is a wood veneer element covered in red paint and clear crackle paint in rock candy. I also used the script stamp from My Favorite things and a Cuttlebug texture folder. The background is a mixture of the gold gelato and distress inks.
Happy Saturday! That means it’s time for a new Send a Smile 4 Kids challenge and we are having fun with punches and dies. I can remember a few years ago when it was not common to have a die for almost every stamp made and that you needed an entire wall to store all your punches. Thankfully, dies are thin and I’m not afraid to admit, I have a few!
As usual for we have some really great sponsors this week. You have until Friday, March 6th to enter.
Also, a quick reminder that Send a Smile 4 Kids is growing and has added more hospitals and volunteers to take your donated cards. We hope you’ll consider donating some cards for kids in need. Check out how.
Now, let’s get on to those sponsors:
1) Flat Friends – offering 6 digital images of winners choice
2) Paper Shelter – offering 3 digital images of winners choice
3) Sassy Studios – offering 4 digital images of winners choice
My first card uses Flat Friends “Love Heart”. He’s colored with Copic’s and the paper is Carta Bella “Boy oh Boy” collection. The “bubble die” is My Favorite Things and the curved die he’s sitting on is the “curved edge” die from Simon Says Stamp. The love sentiment is Paper Smooches.
The next card features “Soccer Star” from Paper Shelter. He’s colored with copics and the paper is and oldie but a goodie from Deja Views called “Sports”. The circles dies are from My Favorite Things.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with using your punches and dies.
Happy Saturday friends! Today’s new Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by A Random Fan who is generously offering 3 digis of winners choice. I hope you pop over to their Etsy page as these images are so cute! Get your card in by Friday, February 27th for a chance to win.
Here’s the sketch:
Love this sketch by Deb! The offset paper is such a cool trend these days. For my card I used A Random Fan’s “Swing Into Love” image which I colored with copics. The paper is from Doodlebug called “take note”. The branch with leaves as well as the offset paper are dies from My Favorite Things. The red heart is chipboard and spray painted with Liquitex professional spray in cadmium red medium hue. If you haven’t used these spray paints give them a whirl. They are so vibrant and really cover multiple surfaces in one spray. The sentiment is Simon Says Stamp “Sketch Banner Sayings”.
I can’t wait to see what you come up with using the new Sketch Saturday Sketch!
