Hi all. I have a quick little project for you today. It is the first Wednesday of the month which means it is Sketch Time over at the InStyle Stamps blog. This month we not only needed to follow the sketch, but we also had to make our card an easel card. I was a little scared at first, but really these are easy cards to make. You can check out the tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers for details.
I used cute little Ellie for my card today. I love those big eyes. This could be a great card for “I’m Sorry” or for a kids birthday. I just had to paint Ellie’s nails, it was only fair, I have done all 3 of my kids toes last week, I got a pedi last night, so Ellie certainly needed to join in the fun.
In addition to using the sketch from InStyle Stamps I have also made this card for
I frayed my ribbon a bit to add to the distressing. Tell me what you think? I used the new Olivia paper from BasicGrey which went perfectly with this image and also worked great with The Crazy Challenge this week. I followed the lines of the paper and hand cut my own scallop for the panel on the left edge.
Ellie and some of her friends will be available for purchase at the InStyle Stamps Store on August 20th…..and the best part is that she is a digi image so you can start playing with her right away.
