AHSC # 321 - Birthday Wishes

The sketch this week has lots of possibilities! I love this lace die cut and wanted to make a pretty card but not too fancy so I choose a patterned background. We'd love to see what you create with the sketch this week so please create something to share! Please visit the AHSC blog to see whatever one else creates! Here's the sketch ...

AHSC #319

This was a fun sketch to follow! I wanted to make 4th of July cards with sparkling stars so placing them in a circle around the stamped image and adding the foil cut bow seemed perfect!

I hope you'll be inspired to create something with the sketch this week.....

AHSC # 317 - A Friend Like You

Sometimes you find a paper and stamps that seem perfect for a card sketch! But when that happens you want to be sure your card isn't too plain. The best way to dress up a card is to add a little sparkle!
Shimmer Brush to the rescue! And to add a tiny bit of dimension some silver glitter thread!

I hope you'll decide to give this weeks sketch a try.....

AHSC # 315

Hello Everyone,
I'm back as a designer for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog! This fun sketch can be used to make a whimsical card or one that is just a touch fancy but not fussy. The gold foil stickers I had were exactly right for the sketch elements so I choose a fancy card. To create the gold stamping I actually had to stamp in gold pigment ink first then stamp lightly in a Desert Sand dye based ink. I hope you'll be inspired to give the sketch a try and submit your card to the AHSC blog. Here is this week's sketch...

AHSC #296 Black & White

The perfect storm for card making occurred today! I'm off work, had time to browse Pinterest, got inspired by the AH Sketch and need to have Thank You card ready to send. As I make the transition from the world of wonderful browns to the gray pallet I'm finding I like the black & white look and the silver thread adds a nice sparkle without adding bulk to my cards.
I hope you too will be inspired to join the Atlantic Heart's Sketch Challenge this week....
