My Card Patterns Sketch Samples

The sketch posted at Card Patterns for their summer Design Team call turned into a bit of a challenge for me! So instead of creating one card, I went for two - and how different they are!

The first features a new stamp I just received of Foxy - one of the Gorjuss girls stamps (from Sugar Nellie):



Isn't she precious?? I wish you could see this in person - so many cool textures going on!

The kraft cardstock base has a Cuttlebugged top section followed by a band of wide sheer organza ribbon that has a satin edging, then a strip of fabric (that's the printed piece) followed by a lace band and finally a row of tiny pom-poms. Sorry the organza ribbon didn't photograph very well - it looks crinkly but it really isn't.

The beautiful image was colored with Copics and a little pom-pom was added to the hat as well as a little pearl in the center of her flower. The additional flowers on the card were all colored to match with Copics and also have a little pearl in the center. I think she (and her little foxy) are just adorable!

I also used the sketch to create this card:



Totally different, right? This card is much more pastel and bling-y! The image is a new stamp from Impression Obsession, colored with Copics and highlighted with sparkles, Diamond Stickles and the shiny, clear Spica pen from Copic. As you can see, I also rotated the sketch for a different look. The beautiful DP is from basic Grey (Wisteria) and the silver paper is from a holiday paper pack from Target. I added the sparkles on the silver paper for added interest and a piece of twisted silver metallic ribbon is behind the pop-dotted image on the right side.

If you want to try your hand at this sketch, be sure to scroll down to the next post.

Have a creative week!

I do love the Gorjuss girls, but I have to say the second card is my favorite. I love the colors, the stamp and the bling - it's truly Gorjuss!!

These are both terrific cards! My fav is the second one with the perfume bottles. You don't see images like that much done on a card.
