…and for something totally different, but you will have to scroll down to the end to see that…….

Today I have sat myself down & created a coupl eof cards for different things…..  I will post them over the next couple of days, so be sure to return to check them out.

This card was for the sketch over on Mary-Jo’s blog.  In fact a really easy sketch, but I will admit I did have a hard time with the 3 little boxes on the top of the sketch, so in the end I switched them to suit my card.  I hope she doesn’t mind, but one good thing about sketches is you can play with them to suit yourself, while at the same time not go too far outside the square, so to speak.

This was not the stamp set I had intended on using, but am happy with the result.  I will put a senitment on when I go to use the card.

Measurements –
Base Card – Lucky Limeade – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 21cm x 10.5cm – Scored in the middle & folded in half
Layer 1 – Whisper White – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 10cm
Layer 2 – Calyspo Coral – 5 1/4″ x  3 5/8″ or 13.35cm x 9cm
Layer 1 – Whisper White – 5 1/8″ x 3 1/2″ or 13cm x 8.5cm


Inside Card & Envelope…


I started my card by stamping random images onto the saller piece of Whisper White using Versamark Ink, poured Clear Embossing Powder over the whole lot, tapped off & Heat Embossed it.  Once it was cool, I then grabbed some of the new “IN Colours” Inks of Lucky Limeade, Calyspo Coral & Pool Party, a sponge & sponged the inks randomly around the card until I thought it looked ok.  I lightly wiped the excess ink off with a tissue. 

This piece was layerd onto Calyspo Coral & a Ribbon tied across the centre, tucked the ends under, adhered to the 2nd piece of Whisper White & then finally to the Base Card – Lucky Limeade.  I tied a bow which was adhered to the card with Mini Glue Dots.

Close Up of Embossed Leaves & Background…

?? For my 3 leaves up the top of the card, I stamped Versamark onto Calypso Coral & Lucky Limeade Cardstock, Heat Embossed using Clear Embossing Powder, cut around images & adhered to the card using Snail Adhesive & Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Gosh, when I read the above, this card should of took me all of about 5 minutes, but in fact it took me about 2 hours, as I kept chopping & changing my mind.

Now for that something different – THE MESS………………………..  I don’t know about anyone esle, but for some reason I always find myself with this…..  I suppose it would help to put things away after each card, but hey, that is way tooooooooooo easy!!!!  Mind you, this is only AFTER 2 cards!!!!

Can you see the card I posted sitting on top, with another just poking out ????


 Unti next time, Enjoy!

  1. Love the background on your card. How beautiful. The whole card is fabulous. And yes you can make the sketch work to your needs! As for the mess–you aint seen nothing till you've seen mine! I can't clean in the middle of stamping cuz it takes away from the creative flow–that's my story and I am sticking to it! Thanks so much for playing along with my sketch challenge this week!

  2. What a cool card Vicky. I would never have thought to think “outside the box” like you did for this one. I had to have a laugh at your work space as mine also looks like that after I have been “creating”.
