A Simple Sketch at Less is More

Good morning lovelies

There is a new challenge just starting at Less is More and this week we have something for you that we haven't seen for a while....

A Sketch!

All we need you to do is create a project using this sketch as your inspiration...

I have two cards to share with you today using the sketch as my starting point...

I die cut a curved rectangle from the top panel which was popped up on 3D foam strips after adhering some hot pink cardstock to the card base to show through the aperture.  I die cut the flower from white cardstock, adhered this over the aperture and accented with some clear Wink of Stella.  I then used the 'Thanks' word die to cut the sentiment from the same hot pink cardstock.

Materials used:
  • Dies: MFT Dienamics - Stitched Rounded Rectangles (negative); Poppy Stamps - Small Posh Outline; Paper Smooches - Thanks Word Die
  • Cardstock: Anna Marie Designs (white); Bazzill Card Shoppe (pink)
  • Accents: Wink of Stella - clear

Creative Card Crew - Challenge #90 - Clean and Simple

My second card didn't translate exactly how I envisioned it would but I'm fairly pleased with it...

I cut two small rectangular masks from a post-it note.  Once placed on the card base I stamped a brush stroke image in rainbow colours over the top.  I then removed the masks and stamped the sentiments in black where the masks had been.  I finished by accenting with co-ordinating Doodle Sprinkles.

Materials used:
  • Die: Clearly Besotted - Geometric Style
  • Stamps: Inkylicious - Brush Strokes; Woodware - Salutations
  • Ink: Versa Color - Scarlet, Orange, Marigold, Fresh Green, Cyan, Heliotrope, Pink; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Accents: Doodlebug Sprinkles

We'd love to see how you interpret our sketch this week and hope to see you in the gallery.  My fellow teamies have some great projects to share so I'd love for you to pop by their personal blogs and leave some love.

I hope to seen you again soon.
