Tuesday Morning Sketches #480

Thank you so much for stopping by.  The latest sketch is up at Tuesday Morning Sketches and it's a great one by Debbie.  And although Debbie created the sketch my sister Karin certainly inspired this card.

Karin has been attending card club with one of her local CTMH demonstrators lately.  She was there a couple of weeks ago and made some pretty cute cards.  One of them I thought was great but she hated it.  She said it was messed up.  And yes, it had a little mistake but it wasn't horrible.  Anyway, the card was similar to our sketch this week so I went about making it.

My card features stamps, stickers and papers from the July Simon Says Stamp kit.  At least I think it was July.  The dies I used are from CC Designs.

The kit also came with 3 gray card bases so I finally used one.  I started with cutting the strips of paper at 1 1/2 inches wide and then adhered to thin white card stock (Recollections).  I then lightly tacked that to the base and then ran it through my die cut machine with the circle die.  This cut through the first layer just fine.  It didn't cut the base but it made enough of an indentation that I could easily put the die back in place and have it match up.

I then put the die on the turquoise card stock and lined up a larger die and cut it out.  I made 2 frames.  Before adhering the decorative paper piece down I put a square of vellum.

I stamped the sentiment on the inside with VersaFine Onyx black and heat embossed with clear embossing ink.

I finished off the card using up as many of the stickers that came in the kit.  I still have some left over.

I hope this provides you some inspiration.  By the way, my sister loved my card.  We'll see you over at the TMS blog.
