Ya know, my son is just learning about superstitions and I almost didn't have a sketch 13 -- I was gonna skip since it is supposed to be unlucky -- but then I thought about my Christian beliefs and what I am trying to teach my son and we are not to believe in superstitions but only in our Lord and Savior so here is sketch number 13!
As I mentioned in my last post this sketch is an easy one -- but for some reason it gave me difficulty! I did come up with two card although I am not SUPER happy with either -- I am not SUPER unhappy either, lol.
My first card is a bit different and I probably would have liked it more in different colors but I was trying to use up paper scraps and I was determined to make these papers work!
I think the part that is really throwing me off is the ugly green stems -- but as I said I really wanted to use that brown scrap and could not stamp or draw stems that would show up on there besides I wanted them 3d to go along with the flowers. This next picture shows the flowers a bit closer.
I will definitely be making these again! They were so easy and they really are adorable in real life. They are made from the big flower in the Doodle This set. Stamp the flower on your desired paper and cut out. Next I added a large circle foam adhesive dot to the back center. I took the paper of both sides of the dimensional -- one side stuck to the middle of the back of the flower and the other side was used to hold the tips of the flower when I folded them back. I used the Three for you punch to add the mini brown flower to the top. Bend in the petals a bit to give them the shape you want. I finished mine off with the white faux brads in the center. Very cute and very easy! The stems of the flowers are pipe cleaners that I stole form my son's craft stuff.
Paper: Chocolate Chip and Whisper White card stock. Cute Pie and Fall Flowers (I think) dp.
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Doodle This and Just Like You
Other: ugly green pipe cleaners, large and small oval punch, faux brads, Three For You punch.
The next card was a quick one! I wanted to use my new cuttlebug folder so this was the perfect layout and stamps set to use with it.
Stamps: Spring Solitude bundle
Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard and Very Vanilla card stock
Ink: More Mustard, Old Olive and Blue Bayou
Other: old olive twill, cuttlebug embossing folder, markers
