After my first card this weekend, I went back to work in The Captain's Quarters, hoping to make at least one or two more cards from my neglected sketch collection, when I spied this sketch from Artful Delight:
Warning: The folks at OWH are way ahead of the rest of the world. Kindof like when you make cards to submit for publication and they are 5 holidays ahead of real-time? Yeah, like that. So OWH is collecting Valentine's Day cards now. I chose Sugar Rush because it's pink and cute and lovey-dovey, which is probably why I so rarely use it. I might have touched it LAST Valentine's Day.
So here's one of my cards:
First I rounded the corners and attached the bottom piece to the card base. I lined up my T-square with the left edge of the paper and butted the top piece up against it so they are all actually straight! Well, okay, one or two missed the to right edge a little, but they are all even with the bottom pieces. :)
Here's another one:
After I got all the papers attached to their bases, I went back and stamped the sentiment on all the cards. I used Archival Jet Black ink for great, crisp impressions.
Here's two more:
After I stamped all the sentiments, I used my Martha Stewart Confetti Heart punch to punch hearts from some of the cut-off pieces. You can see each one of these got coordinating hearts - one large and two small.
Here's two more:
There was one near-fatality. See how this one is a little different:
So that's 16 more cards for OWH. Whoot!
Thanks for stopping by!

Oh I love how you created multiple cards and just changed the paper and sentiment. Way to rock the sketch challenge. Thanks for joining us at Artful Delight.ReplyDelete
They are all quite awesome but I like the one that looks like yarn the best. :)ReplyDelete
I love them all, and that is the perfect sentiment. Then they aren't tied to a particular holiday - great idea.ReplyDelete
Fabulous cards! You continually outdo yourself!ReplyDelete
Near-fatality. I know that feel.ReplyDelete
How I love that great sentiment - it IS perfect for any time :)
Great disguising, I would never have known because this is one amazing display of the sketch. I love how the patterned paper sets the stage. Thanks for playing along with Artful Delight!ReplyDelete
Great cards. Love the pattern papers you used. Thank you for playing along with Artful Delight this month!!ReplyDelete
Love that sketch :) I'll be playing with it in the very near future. Love your batch of lovey dovey cards :)ReplyDelete
May I CASE this one? Love itReplyDelete
Ooh, I love the stripy paper! Pink, sure, but a dark pink with plenty of other colors involved... or possibly it's because a lot of the thin stripes look coppery. I'm a sucker for copper; it's a problem.ReplyDelete
Wow, look at all these great cards. Mass production is not my strong suit... many thanks for joining us at Artful Delight.ReplyDelete
