Have You Tried A New Card Sketch Lately?

The Paper Craft Crew has a great card sketch this week.  This sketch really sparked my creativity!

have you tried a card sketch lately

Bearing Gifts


This is a single stamp set called “Bearing Gifts”.  I really love this one.  It gives you the chance to play with one of your coloring techniques.  I used my Blendabilities on this one.  These are just fun to play with and I’m loving the color varieties that we have to offer.

By the way…the Blendabilities are on sale on December 1!!!  The December 1st Doorbuster Special includes a HUGE SAVINGS on the Blendabilities set.

I’ve used a couple of fun trends on this card…can you see the staple in the upper right?  Stampin’ Up! has a nice little craft stapler in the Holiday Catalog.  It’s a great new trend that I’m having fun experimenting with.  The stapler is designed to fit nicely in your hand and it’s really comfortable to use.  If you order it, make sure you order a package of staples to go with it.

Another trend…can you see the Dazzling Diamonds that I’ve added to the snow the bear is walking on?  (Sorry…my photo watermark covers this up a bit, but I believe you can see the sparkle under the bear.)  Winter scenes just scream for sparkle!

I’ve added the Dazzling Diamonds using the two-way glue.  It’s just so simple to add the Dazzling Diamonds this way and what a sparkle you get!

I’ve also used the Star Border Punch.  I love this new toy also!  It took a bit of practice to use and I will definitely be making a two minute quick tip video to share with you about how to use this.  A bit of trial and error on scrap paper and you’ve got a really fun touch on your card that is quite unique!

Here is the sketch that I started with:
