Around The World On Wednesday May Blog Hop Sketch 101

Welcome to the Around The World On Wednesday May Blog Hop and this month we have a Sketch Challenge. Our Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas using the sketch below to help inspire you. Sketches are a wonderful way to spark creativity and help you step outside your comfort zone.  
For my card design, I chose to use products from the Heart & Home Suite in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog. For the overlapping layers, I chose to use the scalloped rectangle die from the Scalloped Contours Dies and the designer series paper layer was die cut with the Stitched Rectangles Dies. Both of these dies are almost the same size, which made them perfect to replicate the sketch design. The floral stamp image is from the Blessings of Home stamp set and coordinates with the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper layer I chose for this card. I love how this card turned out using this sketch to create this clean and simple design.

This pretty card design had me stepping outside my comfort zone using colors and a layout I had not tried before. I chose the colors from the designer series paper and I will admit, it is not a color combination I have used before. I heat embossed the floral image with White embossing powder to decorate the Pale Papaya layer and I created the sentiment label with one of the dies from the Stylish Shapes Dies and heat embossed the image with White embossing powder to coordinate. I used White Baker's Twine to embellish the Pale Papaya layer and then added the layer to the designer series paper layer with adhesive. I stamped the floral image with Smoky Slate Classic ink on the top right and bottom left corners of the Smoky Slate card base and then added the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. To add a touch of bling, I added Champagne Rhinestones to the centers of the embossed flowers and the sentiment label to finish up the design.

  1. Beautiful! I love these colours together.

  2. What a lovely colour pairing - I wouldn't have thought of that but it works beautifully. The details really make this card, like the scallop edge, layered sentiment and tone-on-tone stamping on the base. Gorgeous!
