Hello - AHSC # 226



I love the new CTMH You Are Here Circuit cartridge because it appears to be designed for scrapbooking vacation travels but it has so many images that can be used in different ways. I also wanted to use this sticker for the sentiment on my card. So I opened up Design Space and started choosing images to cut. Here is how I laid them out on my screen...
The circle was a little larger than the sketch intended but I really didn't want my smallest flower to be much smaller. I've learned that the thin overlays are best adhered to the base image with a glue pen. The white space in the corners was a little too plain so I stamped some flourishes with Linen ink to finish my card.

Here is this weeks sketch. I hope you'll decide to create something and share on the Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge.


Hugs,

Patty

Created to Create


It's so fun to make a card that I get to deliver in person because I can decorate the envelope too!
The roses you see here are from the Beautiful You stamp set. Each flower is a layer of 3 stamps and they come in 3 sizes. The stamp set comes with a set of thin cut dies and there are also 3 different leaf stamps.
My final touch was to use the shimmer brush on each rose.
The Created to Create stamp is new too. I plan on experimenting with this as a background stamp in my next project.
The colors I used for the roses are Bashful, Pixie and Raspberry
The colors I used for the leaves are Fern and New England Ivy

AHSC #224 Hello Darling


Hello Everyone, this is the card I made for this week's AHCS using one of my favorite old stamps. I've paired the stamp with the new Bashful cardstock and used the new Espresso ink to stamp.
I hope you'll be inspired to create something for this week's challenge.
Here's the sketch we are using...
