I love sketches and have enjoyed the Sheetload of Cards by Crafty Al each month. I used this month’s sketch to create several cards.
I used Lawn Fawn stamps for these cards: Sweetest Flavor and Wavy Sayings. The cardstock is all Hobby Lobby as well as the patterned paper. The patterned paper has been in my stash for a few years and was thrilled to be reminded that I had it with CS to match. I added texture with the Subtle Embossing Folder, recently retired, from Stampin’Up. That layer was not in the sketch but I really like the added texture. In total I made 10 cards as I made two of each color. There are more colors in the patterned paper and a lot more sheets, so hopefully I will be inspired soon to use more.
Some of Day Two was dedicated to color layering stamps. I own one color layering stamp, HA Color Layering Ice Cream, with ink pads that match.
Ink details: Cone — HA Soft Brown, Cup O’ Joe; Ice Cream Yellow — Lawn Fawn Butter, Lemonade, HA Cantaloupe; Ice Cream Pink — Lawn Fawn Guava, Wild Rose, and HA Red Royal; Ice Cream Green — HA Mint Julep, Gina K Designs Sea Glass, HA Cup O’ Joe.
The sentiment is stamped in Cup O’ Joe. The gems are retired Hero Arts.
One sample in the class, the demonstrator layered a heart behind their stamped images. I chose a circle. I cut the circle from masking paper and used the negative portion to place on the top layer. I sponged the area with HA Tide Pool ink, using a blender brush.
