PPA 52-Sketch Challenge

Today, I have another card for you inspired by this week's sketch challenge at Pal's Paper Arts.  Sketches are a great way to get inspiration for a design of your own.  They provide a great starting point for a card.  After I get my sketch, I like to select my color scheme, often inspired by one of our designer series paper lines.  Finally, I select the stamp set that I would like to work with.  This is a great way to give yourself guidelines when you just can't think of what you want to do.  You can also select a theme as well to help narrow all the choices that you need to make when designing a card.  Hope these tips help!

Here are the ingredients for this card:

Stamps: Just Believe
Paper: Pacific Point, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Blueberry Crisp DSP
Ink: Crumb Cake, Pacific Point
Accessories: 5/8" Basic Black Grosgrain, Staple

PPA 51-Wedding Card Challenge

Today, I decided to take a break from my intensive scrapbooking to make some cards. I got my two new catalog shipments this week and decided to take some time to play with some of my new goodies. I got some new scrapbooking materials too which I hope to try out this week.

So, my inspiration for this card came from the Pals Paper Arts Challenge. This week's challenge was to create a wedding theme card. This gave me an opportunity to use one of my new sentiment sets. Here are the details:

Stamps: Word Play
Paper: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Greenhouse Gala DSP
Ink: Crumb Cake
Accessories: Daffodil Delight 5/8" Grosgrain, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter

Some New Goodies

I have been really getting into scrapbooking this week with the class I am taking. I am currently at 5 pages which is amazing for me. Between playing with the kids, going to kid activities, work, and housework, I am lucky if I get one page done a month. This class is really motivating me and getting me to make time! For some reason, I really love to scrapbook in the summer, so that helps too. I finally really got a chance to dig into my new supplies. For these pages, I used one of our new Designer Series papers and its coordinating stamp set. All of the buttons used on the pages are retired. I am waiting for my next order to update my button supply.

Here are the ingredients:

Stamps: Friends Never Fade
Paper: Greenhouse Gala DSP, Not Quite Navy, Baja Breeze, Sahara Sand, Travel Journal DSP
Ink: Baja Breeze
Accessories: Not Quite Navy Brads, Boho Blossoms Punch, 2-3/8 Scallop Circle Punch, 1-3/4 Circle Punch, Assorted Buttons, Whisper White 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, Staples, Naturally Serif Sizzix Die
