AHSC # 479 - Happy 4th of July!


 

4th of July in the US will be upon us soon & now that we live in Nevada I send cards to a few friends and family we used to spend the holiday with.

This week Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge is again partnering with the Double Trouble blog challenge to create a card with the AHSC sketch and the "create your own background " challenge from Double Trouble. My card base has been sanded on the edge to add a little texture and the white background was dry embossed with a heart embossing folder. I wanted to use 3 fun pieces for the circle elements, so I cut a heart from glitter paper, cut a circle from a heart pattern paper and stamped the 4th of July image and trimmed it out. I thought these layered together well.

I hope you’ll be inspired to create something with this week’s sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and share it on their blog. Details for the Double Trouble challenge are in this link too.

 Here’s the AHSC sketch…..

AHSC # 478


 For the next 2 weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge is teaming up with the Double Trouble blog challenge for some added fun. To create this card, I have used the Atlantic Hearts sketch and added the "create your own background" element from the Double Trouble challenge. Before I embossed the white background, I painted some gold shimmer brush on the embossing folder. It didn't photograph well but it's there!

I hope you'll be inspired to create something with this weeks sketch and share it on the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog and the Double Trouble blog too!

Here's the sketch to get you started....

AHSC # 477 - Kind Words

 




This week's sketch is so fun! The secret is finding a texture and creating some layers. The stripe paper I used with the honeycomb die cut made this easy. I used gold shimmer brush on the bumble bee for just a little more texture. I also decided to use the square format from the sketch. I'm not concerned about not having a square envelope for this card because it will be tied on a gift bag.

AHSC # 476 - Let Freedom Ring

 


4th of July in the US celebrates so many things, our history, victories throughout the years that have preserved our freedoms and of course the beginning of summer! I love making classic red, white, blue cards and mixing up my stamp sets to create something every year so I can send cards to family and friends. And since I believe the 4th of July should have some sparkle, I used glitter paper hearts and stars!

AHSC # 475 - Love Story Series - Mink

 

Don't let the busy background of this week's sketch discourage you from creating something. Instead let your imagination take over! The CTMH Mink Love Story papers included the pretty zip strip I mounted for the band under the flowers on this card. I inked the edges of the flower blooms and the leaves with a dark green ink and finished the card by brushing just a bit of clear sparkle on the blooms.

AHSC # 474 - Classic Guy


 The sketch this week is one that has so many possibilities! I really love how this card came out. The backside of this woodgrain paper is what I used to stamp the truck image and I think it came out perfect for that vintage look.

AHSC # 473 - Rose Gold Foil


 Pretty papers and imagination seemed to have taken over when I created this card! I truly was inspired by the sketch but a little stumped too! I actually think the sketch is perfect for a square photo scrapbook layout but I didn't have a square photo handy.
