We are hosting another Designer Drafts Challenge over on the Paper Smooches Challenge Blog!! =) I just LOVE the sketch and have actually created a couple different designs to share some different ways that you could use the Sketch!! =) I started my Design after being INSPIRED by a Picture from a Magazine that I cut out about a Year Ago!! =)
I keep a Design/Sketch Idea Book and I cut Pictures out of Magazines for Inspiration or Draw Sketches!! I try to get to everything, but find I have WAY more Ideas in my Book than I have time to make/create them all!! I used the New Paper Smooches Frame Die 2 and created the Fin Frame/Sardine Can!! I decided to turn it into a Shaker Card!! I Stamped and Embossed the Fish Image from the Paper Smooches Briny Blue Paper Smooches Stamps Set and then used the coordinating Paper Smooches Briny Blue 1 Die Set to cut it out!! I then used the New Paper Smooches Wave Dies to make the Ocean Tide and I layered both Vellum and Cardstock for a FUN dimensional look!! I created a personalized sentiment using Sentiments from both the Paper Smooches Briny Blue Stamp Set and the We Adore You Stamp Set!! A few Sequins from Neat & Tangled finishes off my First Card!!
Paper Smooches Flap Happy Stamp Set onto some Patterned Paper!! I then Fussy Cut it out and used the Paper Smooches Butterfly Duets Die Set to Die Cut a Patterned Paper Butterfly and then traced around the Butterfly Die to create a Vellum Layer that was just alittle bigger for another Layer!! I decided to Cut just the Body of the Butterfly from some Black Cardstock and I layered it over all the Layers to Finish it off!! Then I used the Paper Smooches Scalloped Circle Die Set to create a FUN Layer for the Butterfly to rest on!! I Dry Embossed the Largest Scalloped Circle onto the Card Front and then Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment and my Card was done!!
Paper Smooches Flap Happy Stamp Set and then I also created a Similar Scalloped Circle Background except I used the Larger Dies!! I stamped a couple of the Heart Trail Images also from the same Stamp Set in the Top corners of the card and then I Die Cut one of the Flags from the Paper Smooches Flag Tags Die Set!! I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment from the same Stamp Set after Masking part of it to fit onto my Banner!! I just LOVE the way it turned out!! =)
