CAC sketch 7-27



Here's the sketch.
And here's my blurry flash-less photo.
And another photo
(truer colors but I can't seem to get the yellow to show up correctly either way).

I embossed the greenish-gold squares with my cuttlebug, then outlined it with black marker. Next I added glitter to the cupcakes. The other squares were cut from wrapping paper samples that come in my kids school fund-raising catalog. I stamped the birthday sentiment on another piece of the green/gold then matted it on another piece of orange cardstock. I sent this card to my future sister-in-law for her birthday.

Thank you for looking

CAC sketch 7-20




First, sorry for the blurry photo. Here's the original sketch.I rotated the sketch (probably the easiest sketch to rotate ever) and used my Creative Memories smallest circle punch to make the circles. I could have squeezed another row of circles but I didn't have any more brads (I used two packages just to do this card). The colored circles were colored by me with my Tim Holtz Adirondack alcohol inks. I mounted the circles on another peice of alcohol inked paper and then mounted that on my card base. I rubbed the edges with gold paint.

Thanks for looking.
