Always Playing With Paper Card Sketch #29

Here is my card sketch for the sketch of the week for #alwaysplayingwithpaper.  I used a Penny Black stamp, embossed with white embossing powder, added shading and accents with Ranger Distress inks, stencils.  The embellishment fabric ribbon was from Heidi Swapp.  Maybe this submission will be a winner!

Happy Greenery!

Red Gingham and Yellow Daisies!

Lawn Fawn stamps and die cuts work so well together. I used patterned paper for the flowers, leaves and accent paper for the front of the card.  I used three different die cut circles for the background and added a  word banner.  The last touch was a small glossy accent heart.  A simple card sketch layout that can be used for many different cards.

You Go Girl BDay! card

I created a card for the Wednesday challenge at splitcoaststampers.com.  I used the bicycle die cut from Die-versions, made a template for the sloping hill and layered green patterned papers.  I added stenciled accents to the grass and blue background papers. I stamped and printed out word banners. The final touch was sparkly gems for the wheels.  Great inspirational card and ready for a special friend.


Pretty Papers decorated box!

This was my design challenge for a Scrapbook Cove class to use Ranger Distress paints to create a decorated box  After many different ideas, here is my final project.  I created a die cut flower in shades of blue, silver and a scalloped edge  and leaves using the new pistachio color from Ranger.  I only had a few colors to play with.  I covered the box  and cover with patterned paper and added ribbon.  Looking good!
