New Sketch Blog


DSCN5870 I found a new card sketch blog called Card Patterns and I made this card using their very first sketch.  I have another to share with you tomorrow.  It was a fun sketch to work with and I look forward to playing along in more sketches of theirs in the future!!  You can see the card that I made to apply to their Design Team here (and I made it!!!! Woo hoo!!!!).

You can't really see it - even in the close-up it's hard to spot, but there's a tiny little clear crystal in the center of the flower.  Also, let me tell you, I LOVE how the "LOVE" looks cut out, but it was VERY tedious - especially doing the heart and leaves - but the result was so worth it!!!

All Supplies SU! Unless Otherwise Noted

Stamps:  Love You Much
Paper:  Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip and Kraft CS, Candy Lane DSP
Ink:  Chocolate Chip
Accessories:  Paper Piercing Tool and Template, Clear adhesive-backed Crystal (?? from Michael's), Hobby Blade and cutting mat, Stampin' Sponges, Stampin' Dimensionals

Have YOU signed up for Stamps in the Mail?!?!? 


  1. ok, so did you use the white gel pen to color the word love?
    I love it. I may have to case this one from you. The only thing that will hold me back is no time!!!!

  2. I Love this card! I nominated you for the I Love Your Blog award and the Kreativ Blogger award on my blog today. Feel free to pass on the love - or not.

  3. I am impressed!! I don't think I have the patience to cut that out! I really like the riding hood red & kraft together.

  4. OMG! I just love this card. It's amazing how different it looks with the letters cut out. I may have to try this for myself. TFS

  5. Love this sketch and love your card! I can't believe you took the time to cut out those letters! I would have never thought of that! I did this sketch too, and I even cut out my cupcakes! Yay me! Go lookie, if you like!
