First up, the Unscripted sketch for this week.
I found it pretty fun to interpret this weeks sketch with some of my new Hero Arts stamps.
The background in the squares is a Newsprint Background stamp. I added in some color after stamping on white cardstock. The pink flower and the smaller flower are stamped and cut with a Sizzix die set. I loved using this set.
Next up, The Craft's Meow stamps is having a birthday party and part of the party celebrations is a sketch to use.
When I first saw this set of stamps of snowflakes, I knew I had to have it immediately. It was so fun to use it on my card. The snowflakes were stamped in white on white cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder. Next, I used Broken China Distress stain to color over the stamped snowflakes and to color the background of the card. I spritzed it with water to help the color run together. I then took a brown Distress stamp pad and rubbed over some of the areas, especially the edges. This made the snowflakes stand out even more and it also gave a distressed look.
The ornate frame is cut with my Cricut Expressions and the Martha Stewart Elegant Cake Art cartridge. I placed that over the sentiment that was stamped the same way as the card front.
