Sketch For You to Try!! I hope you all had a chance to play along with us last month - Lots of exciting things in store for participants of the monthly SFYTT this year, including a chance to win another fabulous huge prize package at the end of the year!! All of the details can be found on today's post over on Jen's blog, with some of the details outlined in the "In a Nutshell" graphic at the end of this post. We have another amazing sponsor this month - Kraftin' Kimmie!
First, here's a look at this month's fun sketch:
I had fun with the sketch this month, but needed to rotate it 90 degrees for what I had in mind. I also pulled out some of my new Verve stamps and some fun neutral papers and got to work on another card for my son Dean:
I'm really happy with the way this card turned out - fun with a little sparkle, yet still masculine enough. Patterned papers are from the Classic Calico Paper Pack from Studio Calico, and the White Woodgrain Cardstock is also from Studio Calico - I've been hoarding that for quite some time and am glad I finally cut into it! Yes, I used my all-time favorite Classy Label stamp from the Love Notes set (Verve) along with the coordinating Classy Label Die and I was super excited to finally get one of the fun sentiments from Brighter Days inky! Sometimes it's hard to find the right embellishments for boy cards and a lot of people shy away from glitter, but not me! - Mostly because my son still loves all things sparkly and glittery, so I'm not afraid to add a little bling! I added some Martha Stewart silver glitter around the edge of the classy label mat. I also used some more Mister Huey's Color Mister in Inky Black to add some ink splatters. Then there's the wood veneer stars, washi tape and little tiny staples for finishing touches. I think it all came together pretty good and didn't lose it's masculine feel.
Be sure to stop by the rest of the SFYTT Sisters' blogs to see what they've done with this month's sketch! And a very warm welcome to our Designer of the Month, Leslie Good! Don't forget to stop by her blog to see what she's created as well.
