Sweet Sunday Sunshine

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC215.

I created a cheery card to match the sunny weather we've been having this weekend…finally!


I completely flipped the sketch upside down to work with the image from Sunflower Sweetheart, so she'd be looking into the card. She became the rectangle element on the card and the star accent is the talk bubble sentiment.

There are lots of possibilities with this sketch. I hope you'll play along and link your card on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.

Sweet Sunday Season's Greetings

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC213.
This week's sketch has a little bit of a twist to it. Your card is supposed to be a skinny card, not a regular 4.25 x 5.5 size, and mine is 3.5 x 5.5 so it fits the bill perfectly. You know when you make a card and you absolutely adore it? Well that's how I feel about today's card. It makes me SMILE! And guess what? It's card #3 for Project Christmas 2014.

I used the circle element as a frame for my cute little snowman from Swanky Snowdudes by Paper Smooches. I cut a circle right through the front of the card and placed my snowman on the inside.
I used the same "faux epoxy" technique as last week's card to create the sparkly, shiny frame around the opening.
I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.

Sweet Sunday Thank You

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC212.
This is a perfect clean and simple layout for a nice big sentiment, like the Thank You Die-namics from My Favorite Things. I decided to completely flip the sketch upside down once I had my sentiment in place because there's more space below the words than above, which works better with the flower embellishment.

I used the "inlay" technique (which I first saw on Jennifer McGuire's blog) and cut the sentiment from patterned paper from the Basic Grey Kneehighs collection. Then I cut the sentiment out of the white piece and inlayed the patterned 'thank you'. The big thing to remember with the inlay technique is to keep all the tiny middle pieces because you need to re-insert them for it to look authentic.
I love the pop of yellow from the flower. I embellished the center of the flower by first coating it with Star Dust Stickles, then once that was dry I gave it a thick coating of Glossy Accents, so it looks like faux epoxy.
I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers created.
