Tuesday Trio sketches

Few cards and layouts I did for Tuesday Trio this summer.

This card is based on sketch 82. The challenge for this sketch is to use punches. I used my Fiskars scallop and circle squeeze punches  to punch out the sentiment and the scallop behind it. I also used my favorite Fiskars corner squezee punch to round the corners of the green cardstock piece. For this sketch the DT got to use digital stamps by Crafty Sentiments Designs. I picked this adorable bunny. You can win 4 digital stamps of your choice by participating in the challenge. Link up your layout or card here by Septemeber 10th, 4pm Central Time.

Supplies: patterned paper (My Mind's Eye), digital stamps (Crafty Sentiments Designs), punches (Fiskars), pencils, smooch ink

The next card is based on sketch 81 and the challenge here was to use distressing but not with ink. I chose to distress the edges of the patterned papers that already had a vintage and distressed look.

Supplies: patterned paper (Jenni Bowlin, My Mind's Eye), flowers (Recollection), journaling sticker (Jenni Bowlin), letter stickers (Cosmo Cricket), pearls (Kaiser Craft), twine, rub-on

The next one is based on the sketch 80 and the theme for this challenge was "women". We just came back from our big road trip when I worked on this sketch so I decided to use this sully photo of us, all wet after the hike in the rain.
Supplies: patterned paper, letter stickers, chipboard (Colorbok), journaling tag (Making Memories), flower punch (EK Success)

This layout is based on sketch 79 and the challenge here was "use bright and happy colors". And I did. All papers and embellishments are from Pink Paislee "Hometown Summer" collection. The scallop border is done by adhering punched hearts under the circle.
Supplies: patterned paper, chipboard (Paink Paislee), chipboard letters (My Mind's Eye), letter stickers (Doodlebug, Jenni Bowlin), punch (Fiskars)
Here is another layout using the same paper collection. It is based on sketch 77. The challenge for this sketch was to use acrylic paint. I painted two big chipboard corners that I had forever. Love using older supplies and mixing them with new products.
Supplies: patterned paper (Pink Paislee), chipboard letters (My Mind's Eye), journaling sticker (Basic Grey), die (Lifestyle Crafts), chipboard corners, acrylic paint

The next layout is based on sketch 76. The challenge was to use a text page. I used a page from an old magazine in Hebrew to mat my photo and to punch out two butterflies.
Supplies: cardstock (Core'dinations), patterned paper (S.E.I.), crochet flowers (My Mind's Eye), paper flowers (Petalloo), buttefrly punches (Fiskars, Martha Stewart), jewels, doilly


Phew, that was a long post. I will be back tomorrow with more layouts and card from this summer.

  4. כרטיס הארנב משגע. הארנב הזה חמוווד :-)
    הכרטיס הלבן מ-ע-ל-ף! מאוד אלגנטי
    הדף הנשי אכן רטוב...
    הדף הצבעוני עשה לי חשק לגלידה :-)
    אהבתי את הרעיון שליצור מסגרת סקאלופ מלבבות
    גם הדף של חום אוקטובר יפה וצבעוני. צריך להשתמש בחומרים ישנים כדי לפנות מקום לחדשים :-)
    הדף יומולדת משגע. מאוד אוהבת את הדוילי הסרוגות ואת פרפרי הטקסט.
