Can you believe it is already March? Well, that means it is time for a new Sketch Challenge at the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog. I really like sketch challenges because I love to see all the fantastic ideas everyone comes up with! They are always sooo amazing!! I can’t wait to see what you do with this:
It is a fun, easy sketch so I hope everyone will pull out their papers and stamps (SNS only) and get creative. Don’t forget to go to the Sparkle N Sprinkle Blog to get all the details and requirements and leave a direct link to your card with Mr. Linky.
Now for a little inspiration. I really wanted to use this image, Palm Hammock, which is included in SNS’ new Surfin’ Woody set. I was digging through my massive amount of papers and found these two fun designer papers that I have had for a long time. Perfect!! To create the two sides, I have found it easier to cut both sheets at the same time so they line up better. First I cut a rectangle the size I wanted for my card front and then I cut the diagonal on both, at the same time, too. This provides me with perfectly matched triangles from each paper, plus an extra set for a 2nd card.
I stamped and heat embossed the image, using VersaMark ink and Cerulean Embossing Powder, on Clear Embossable Acetate. I colored from the back and added Hit the Beach Embossing Powder. This is layered on a slightly larger piece of Sticker Paper, the edges covered with Blue Lightning Glitter, and then popped up in the center of the card with squares of foam tape. See – fun and easy!! For more details on this card, visit Sparkle N Sprinkle here. For more inspiration from some of my fellow designers, head over to the SNS blog.
Ok, I do have a little tip for everyone. Do NOT leave your embossing powders open next to an open glitter that is similar color. After adding the embossing powder behind my image I accidently poured my Hit the Beach embossing powder into my lovely Florida Beach Glitter. Grrrr! I tried to pour it back off and saved everything in a little bag to play with later but alas I think I just made it worse. Guess I will be getting some new glitter.
Have a sparkling day!
