It is Sketch  Saturday time again.  
Here is this week's sketch.

I have been gradually familiarising  myself with some of my older sets.  I found some older background stamps.  This one is a very old SU one.  I needed something to fill the background on this.  Firstly I done it on the Very Vanilla panel.  It was too much.  Then I tried it on the Lost Lagoon with Pretty Peacock ink.  Perfect.  

Added some Pecan Pie circles with stamped leaves from the SU Notes Of Nature set.  Coloured those with copic markers that closely resembled the cardstock colours.  Then to take out some of the colours I added white butterfly skeleton die cuts   added a gem to each one.  

Lastly I added a black bannered sentiment.  Not my normal colour combo but I really the finished product.

Wooly Cute


I seem to have a recurring theme happening here.  Baby cards.  And pink ones at that.  No one I know is expecting but this cute stamp set screams baby cards to me.  

I will endeavour to make more if these and in a few different colours.  You can never have too many.  They always come in handy.  
I used the Waffle Flower Postage Collage stencil and dies.  This was my first time using them.  Cannot wait to do more with them.  
Mothers day is coming up.  I can see some cards being made in these items.
Thank you for popping in.  For more INS inspiration head on over to the Facebook group.  
Happy crafting.

Back with Sketch Saturday.  

Went a little different with this one.  

I only done 3 diagonal strip's.  And you will notice they are branches.  Fits with the theme of birds.  
I used the Stampin' Up sale a bration paper that everyone went nuts for.  The bird is from an older set, Free as a Bird.  The bird matched perfectly with the paper birds do that is how I coloured him.  
Added a few little extras to fill, all in marmtching colours.  Pretty happy with this

Sketch Saturday time again.  
I thought I might do a male card for this sketch.

This is a set I bought but have never used.  My aim this year is to get through as many unused sets as possible. 

It is Stampin" Up"s Legendary Ride.  There is a stamp set with a die.  I used a sentiment stamp from the set but mainly just used the dies to make rhe motorbike from black and silver foil card stock.   I used the matching designer series paper fir the cut out panels fir the pattern to match the sketch.

time again.  Boy is time flying or what?  
Here is this fortnights sketch. 

And the twist this time around is "Feature green"
And without checking the twist before I started, that is exactly what I did   

I have used all Stampin' Up supplies ( except for my copics)  
Stamp set is "Notes of Nature" and I used the matching dies.  I also used Ornate Frames dies for around the sentiment. 
I stamped the grid stamp on the 2 end rectangles at the bottom and then either side of the sentiment.  Stamped the field notes stamp in the centre bos, then filled the boxes up with the dot stamp.  All this was done in crumb cake ink.  
Black ink was used for the sentiment, leaves and little flowers. 
Leaves G46 G43 G40
Flower YR27 YR23 Y 15
Card base and sentiment frame are Pecan Pie cardstock.  And the front piece is Very Vanilla. 
This card fell nicely into place.  I love symmetry and this card is no different.  
Thank you for popping in and having a look.  
Happy crafting.

Giraffe Road Trip


Hi everyone.  Back with
and their new release
Today I used the cute giraffes image.

I cut out a piece of white cardstock and die cut a decorative die down the side.  Using copic narkers  to add a background behind the image.  Coloured the giraffes to match the 
paper I used on the base.  I die cut some green leaves and placed them under the die cut Happy Birthday with a couple of gems underneath to finish it off.
Hope you like this project.  Don't forget for more inspiration head over to the FB page.
