Well that was a very nice Friday! Work was quiet and the day went quick. Dinner was very tasty. I had the Blue Cheese Stacked Burger and endless Sweet Potato fries (4 servings to be exact!) and we even had some Brownie Obsession for dessert, you have to mix it up sometimes! Today will be a get some stuff done sort of day. I’m going to watch the wee ones for a bit this morning and then a haircut (finally!) at 1:45. After that who knows!
My card for today is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Resident artist Jen T. has given us this great sketch to work with…
I needed a collage card and for some reason when I looked at the sketch I saw tickets! My card base is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set and some Night of Navy and Encore Gold Metallic Ink to randomly stamp one of the images a few times. My tickets are a piece of Crumb Cake that I sponged with Night of Navy and and some paper from the Etcetera Designer Series Paper Pack, the corners are punched with the Ticket Corner Punch and they are adhered at angle to each other and to the card base. There is also a small piece of Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape on the right. The greeting is stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla that I sponged with some Pool Party. The stamped images are from the Countless Sayings 2 Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Night of Navy. My ampersand is a piece of adhesive cork sheet that I cut out with the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Dies. The heart was in the scrap pile and just wanted to put on there! A piece of crumb cake is stamped with the Hardwood Background Stamp in Crumb Cake and the Small Heart Punch and 1″ Circle Punch punch it out. A piece of Gold Foil Sheet is cut out with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and the heart/circle and butterfly are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A few random sequins complete the card. Collage style is definitely my favorite and you can keep it pretty clean for a collage. I really hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Jen T. Thanks a lot for visiting and enjoy your Saturday! 🙂
