Simply Sketches #9

Winner of Simply Sketches #8 is Neha! Congratulations Neha! Your glitters will be on the way to you very soon!

Sketch for this week:


Why do simple cards take soooo long?!?!? It took me one ruined card and some more minutes to reach to this card! It looks so much better IRL. I especially like the way “you” came out. I looked for fonts and fonts and more fonts till I was satisfied with this! Since I’d seen the Papertrey dies for Wonderful words I ‘d been planning to try out something similar with my Cricut! Love how it turned out!


I embossed the circle using the Nestabilities Circle die. Masked the circle using a die-cut and stamped the polka dot background (had to use my new stamp Smile!) with versamark. Using the negative mask I stamped the flowers and leaves. Cut out “you” on Cricut. I used the Vladimir font. Stamped the sentiment in black.

  • Stamps: Hero Arts Blossom Art, Hero Arts Frames and messages
  • Paper: Papertrey Spring Moss, Enchanted evening
  • Others': Versacolor inks, Versamark, Cricut, SCAL

If you use the sketch to make a card, please leave me a link and I would love to see your creation!

So sorry girl, couldn't do the last sketch...I got so caught up with the ICR sketch..and now no more glitters?
will surely give this a shot!! Love these sketches...keep them coming...

And every 10 sketches, could you do a combined pdf of all of them? easier for me to keep them in one place!!
