Tuesday morning sketches

It's no secret that I love making cards and love following card sketches.  When I saw this morning's sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches, I wanted to play along.  It didn't take me very long to come up with design paper, sentiment, embellishments and coloured card stock.  It took me all of 15 minutes to make this card and I love how it turned out!

Here is the sketch:

Here is the card I made using the sketch as inspiration:

I started out with a white card stock base and added a layer of green card stock, and a layer of design paper from a 6 x 6 paper pad - Here Comes Santa Clause by Doodlebug Designs.  I then added a layer of red card stock and a layer of white card stock for the sentiment which was stamped with green ink.  The red layer is popped up on 3D foam squares.  All the layers were die cut using stitched rectangle dies by Your Next Stamp.  The three sparkly enamel dots are also by Your Next Stamp and the gold ribbon is from my rather large stash of ribbon.

This is the 3rd Christmas card I've made for my stash so hopefully; I'll have enough Christmas cards made by the time December rolls around.

Thanks for stopping by!

This will be my last post as a member of the AHSC Design Team.  Michelle's sketch this week had me wracking my brains for a bit but I am happy to report that I am very pleased with my card.  Here is this week's sketch:

Here is the card I created following the sketch:

I started out with a white card stock base and then added a layer of rose design paper which is from a 6 x 6 paper pad - Sweet Roses by Marianne Design.  I die cut the white panel using a stitched rectangle die from Your Next Stamp.  I added a strip of pink card stock and cut the roses which I believe is by Tattered Lace dies twice - once in green and then in pink and layered the pink roses on top of the green roses. The sentiment which was also die cut from the pink card stock is by Stamps of Life and the pink rose in the bottom left corner is by Spellbinders.  I added a sparkly yellow enamel dot to the center of the rose.

We would love to see what you create using the sketch and linking up.  You might even be picked as a top three participant.

I have thoroughly enjoyed being a member of the Design Team and will probably play along in the future.  I might also sign up for another 6 month term.

Thanks for stopping by!
