Making Your Spirits Be Bright Card Sketch!

I always love when it’s time for me to create a card for the Paper Craft Crew.  The sketches created by my friend Pam are fabulous.  I think they just get better every week.  I love how each person on the design team uses the sketch in such very different ways.

This week, I followed the sketch pretty closely.  I added a couple of details, as you will see when  you compare my card to the sketch.

If you have not tried a sketch challenge, you should.  It’s fun and it challenges your card design skills while taking some of the work out of it.  You’re starting with a basic card layout after all!

This All is Calm Designer Series Paper is a stunner.  The colors are so soft and relaxing, while the patterns are easy to add to your projects without overwhelming them.  Hurray to the illustrators and designers of this paper package.  You’ve got a hit with this one!

The Making Spirits Bright stamp set works for several holidays and it’s just downright fun!  The images are easy to add color to and they aren’t so detailed that it takes a long time to do the coloring.  (Great for busy folks like us!)

As you may notice, I love the metal buttons.  The silver ones in the Annual Catalog are nice and that is what I used here to coordinate with the Basic Gray spots in the designer paper.  The gold metal buttons have been one of my favorite touches in my fall and winter paper projects.   LOVE them!

Here is this week’s Paper Craft Crew Sketch:

Cute sketch, right?  What do you have in your stamping stash that you could use with this card sketch?

I had a lot of ideas for this one and I’ve been dying to use the Making Spirits Bright stamp set.  Love the way it turned out.

I colored in my image with my Stampin’ Write Markers, but you could use colored pencils, chalks, Blendabilities or your Aqua Painter.

I challenge you to play with different coloring techniques and see which are your favorites!  Experimenting with techniques and tools leads to some fun projects.  There is nothing wrong with serendipity while you’re crafting!

Thank you so much for stopping by!  I hope that I helped to make your spirits bright with a fun card sketch!
