CTS #70 + Merry Monday #101 & Craft Hoarders Anonymous #4 + Card Concept #6 & FMS #129

I have a trio of cards to share today. This first one was inspired by the CAS(E) this Sketch! #70 and I think you can see I took Sam Simpson's sketch very literally.




I used Distress Inks to color the background sky panel and the border die cut foreground. After inking, I spritzed water to mottle the colors a bit.




The foreground panel is popped up with a very thin foam adhesive and then the whole panel is adhered to the card base with a thicker foam square.




For this next card I took inspiration from The Card Concept #6 and Freshly Made Sketches #129.





My card follows Clean & Layering style, with the embossed panel inspired by the white cake & the double scalloped senitment panel by the cake plate.



This final card is for the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #4 and Merry Monday #101: Grey, Red  & White challenge.

Sparkle, Glitz & Glam



The wreath image is stamped and embossed with silver embossing powder and a few of the berry dots are touched with red stickles. 




The white panel is attached to the card base with the white glitter tape, so it has a swing and movement to it that I really like.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie

  2. Well, Jacquie--you were busy today. I love all three, but have to say that my favorite is the first. I adore that die and all cards made with it. I love your literal approach, and your inking takes it over the top.
