Happy Friday everyone. I’ve had the best week, making a stack of cards for our upcoming Annual Extravaganza event but I am delighted that I was able to also take part in the TGIF Sketch Challenge #342.
When I saw this sketch come up, it jumped out at me. I love to incorporate circles into my cards.
A sketch is a great place to start if you are short on time. I can spend FAR too long on Pinterest deciding on how I’m going to use a stamp set so this sure cuts down the decision making process. It’s a fabulous time saver and it really helps to get the creative juices flowing.
So this week is a sketch challenge but I love that with TGIF there is a different kinds of challenges each week. It might be Sketch, Colour, Technique, Theme or Mash Up
Anyone can join in the fun and you don’t have to have a blog. Just click on the link to check out TGIF and all the entries in this week’s challenge with this sketch.
I chose the Merriest Moments Stamp Set and Dies bundle for my card. This set is one of 3 kits that we chose for our Awesome Stampers Extravangaza this year.
If you haven’t seen if before WOW is it amazing. Not only has it got some fabulous word stamps with beautiful fonts it comes with a hybrid embossing folder and coordination dies as a combo with the stamp when purchased as a bundle.
Here is a close up of the window I cut for the front of the card using the layering circles dies. I used one of the scallop circles and a straight edge circle to create the frame for the window.
For the stamping I inked up the leaf image with Pear Pizazz Ink and then sponged a little Evening Evergreen ink over the top to create the variegated greenery look.
For the focal circle I chose the Emboss Resist technique, embossing with clear embossing powder and sponging Evening Evergreen Ink over the top with a blender brush so that the embossed words emerge. Simply wipe off any excess ink until the white pops.
