Unscripted Sketches #172 – Flying By

  • Stamps – Lawn Fawn, “Flying By”
  • Patterned papers – My Mind’s Eye “Reunion”
  • Cardstock – BoBunny and Bazzill
  • Cardstock trim – Bazzill “Raven Half the Edge”
  • Twine

I went to Unscripted Sketches for inspiration for this card. This is Unscripted Sketches Sketch #172 featuring the Lawn Fawn “Flying By” paper airplane stamp set, which is very fun. I stamped the airplanes on patterned papers and cut them out and mounted them with dimensional adhesive on the card front, also popping up the sentiment. I used the sketch and the Piggyback color challenge also featured for this week’s challenge. Enjoy your day and please stop by again soon.


You are my sunshine – Unscripted Sketches #168

  • Stamps – Darcie’s “Here Comes the Sun” cling set
  • Patterned papers – SEI “Bright Blossom” collection
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

This is a very simple, bright card. The sketch is from Unscripted Sketches #168.  I’ve had very limited creating time, so I had to keep it simple and wanted cheery! This is a nice stamp set for cheery and it will be a nice card to send in my next Operation Write Home box. Well, that’s it for now. Thanks for the visit!


Unscripted Sketch #153 – Dad

  • Patterned papers – Basic Grey “Hello Luscious: Honeyed”
  • Patterned cardstock: BoBunny “DoubleDot: Chiffon Journal and Coffee Journal”
  • Stickers – Pebbles “ABC Stickers”

I used Sketch #153 at Unscripted Sketches as inspiration for this clean and simple card. This sketch is part of the Third Blogiversary celebration at Unscripted Sketches, where there is a different sketch every week. I made a “Dad” card for my shipment to Operation Write Home, since we are trying to make a lot of Father’s Day and Dad cards this month for the troops to use to send home. I added faux stitching to the edges of all the elements to add a little more detail. Thanks for stopping by.


Unscripted Sketch #152 – Father’s Day

  • Image – Lisa Vollrath & Ten Two Studios
  • Patterned paper – KaiserCraft “Hunt and Gather” 6 X 6″ pad
  • Die cut made from Spellbinders Nestabilities “Standard Circles Large”
  • Cardstock – Bazzill
  • Crafter’s Cord – Hemptique “Vintage”

I made this card using the current sketch: #152 at Unscripted Sketches. The colors are quite muted, but kind of pleasant that way. This card will go in my next box for Operation Write Home (OWH), since we are trying to make lots of Father’s Day cards for the heroes to send home. The Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Challenge on OWH Stars and Stamps for April is to feature an animal on a card.  I have a collection of fish images from Lisa Vollrath and Ten Two Studios that I though work well for Father’s Day cards. So that was my animal of choice! The really cool thing about this challenge is that for every 25 cards we make, ODBD pays for the shipping of a box of cards to our deployed troops. We have been making at least 50 every month that ODBD has sponsored this challenge. That is a big help! Thanks for visiting today.


Unscripted Sketch #134

  • Patterned papers – My Mind’s Eye “Lime Twist” collection
  • Stamps – Daisy Bucket Designs “Swirl Heart” and Studio G/Hampton Art Series 62
  • Border punch – Fiskars “Threading Water Punch”

I used the latest script at Unscripted Sketches: Sketch #134 to make this card. This will be another Valentine for my Operation Write Home shipment I need to complete soon. Thanks for stopping by!


Happy Birthday – Flying Bear

  • Image – Digital image by Elephantastic, made available at Crafter’s Digital Art Center (CDAC)
  • Patterned papers – My Mind’s Eye “Lime Twist” collection
  • Die cut – Labels Seventeen
  • Stamp – Cat’s Pajamas “Smells Like Cake” clear set – Happy Birthday

I was inspired by the current sketch at Unscripted Sketches – #132 . I kind of switched it up a little bit, but the concept is definitely there. I used a digital image created by Elephantastic that was provided in the CDAC Freebie Progressive Challenge. Thanks for visiting.


Unscripted Sketches – Sketch #130

  • Patterned papers – BoBunny “Enchanted” collection from their 6″ X 6″ pad
  • Die cuts – Spellbinder’s Nestabilities “Standard Circles” and “Lacey Circles”
  • Stamp – Inky Antics “Thank You”
  • Silver metal stickers – Mark Richards

I was inspired by Unscripted Sketch #130 for this card. I love the paper piecing of this sketch with this BoBunny paper collection. The small print really lends itself to this kind of design. This was another Design Team card for Stampin’ Cat Studio. Thanks for visiting.
