Here’s my take on Unscripted Sketches #45. What a fun sketch! With its metal accents and strong color, my card has a bolder look than what I had envisioned. Even though the stamped image includes flowers, I am not so sure I wouldn’t give this one to a man, although I suppose the “with love” sentiment limits it to only a few candidates. LOL.
Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Cocoa cardstock; Perfect Day paper packet; Cocoa, Juniper, and Bamboo ink pads; Aspiration and Say it in Style stamp sets; Stampin’ Up Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon; Chocolate Waxy Flax; Antiqued Copper mini brads and Mini Medley Accents; Sponge dauber; Sanding block.
Here’s an Easter card I put together last night – my take on Mojo Monday 128. I colored the bunny with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I was thinking about how some stitching around the outside would added a little flair. Oh, to figure out how to incorporate a sewing machine into my tight, little corner. A small sewing machine, maybe? I actually dreamt about the Janome Mini last night. It must have been a sign. LOL.
Materials & Tools: White Daisy, Sweet Leaf, and Sorbet cardstock; Caboodle paper packet; Black and Crystal Blue ink pads; Bunny Love and Say it in Style stamp sets; White Daisy Mini Medley Accents; Sweet Leaf Designer Ribbon Rounds; Prismacolor colored pencils; Gamsol odorless mineral spirits; Blending stumps; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Circles set; Piercing tool; 3M foam mounting tape.
Before I forget, there was a question about the Sizzix embossing folder I used for my Simple Saturday card. Yes, Sizzix’s embossing folders are compatible with the Cuttlebug. They look just like a Cuttlebug folder, and the only difference I noticed was their size. They will emboss a full 4-1/4 by 5-1/2 piece of piece of paper – a feature I appreciated.
I woke up this morning feeling pretty lousy – sore throat, icky headache, the start of a cold – not down-and-out sick but close. Shoot. Little Bjorn has had a cold and cough all week, and while it might have been wiser to have kept my distance, I couldn’t do it.
I guess I will rest today and see what transpires. For now, I’m off to the medicine cabinet to see if I can find something to take care of the headache.
Thank you for all of your sweet comments on my Simple Saturday posts. The encouragement is always appreciated. Have a wonderful day! Later …
