Creating Pretty Cards Sketch Challenge

SketchEach month in addition to the great 3D projects at Craft Project Central, they also host a monthly card challenge – Creating Pretty Cards!! 

This is the sketch for January.  It’s easy to play along.  Just create a card using the sketch idea.  It doesn’t have to be exactly like the sketch.  You can turn it, make it bigger, smaller, use different embellishments, colors – whatever you want.  The sketch is just an “inspiration starter” for you.

Here are two of the cards I made.  CPC31, Craft Project Central, Stampin' Up!The Valentine was created using the Hearts Collection framelits and the new spiral flower die from the Occasions catalog.  I also used Gorgeous Grunge for the splattered background and the Little Leaves sizzlit.  And, of course, I used Gingham Garden washi tape.

I made the Thank You card tonight.  For this one, I used several new products from the Stampin’ up! Occasions catalog – Watercolor Wonder Designer Note Cards and Envelopes, Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape (it’s gold!!), Watercolor Wonder designer series paper and the new Happy Watercolor stamp set.  (Do you see a theme here?)  These products, the spiral flower die and lots, lots more will be available for purchase Friday, Jan 3.

I also used a vintage designer button with gold foil underneath.  It looks so pretty in person.  The facets on the button catch the light and that gold foil really sparkles.  I added a little Island Indigo candy dot in the corner.

So head over to Craft Project Central to see the guidelines for posting.  It’s easy – and you might just win a month’s subscription to CPC!  My dear friend Susan Horr won in December with her beautiful winter card.  (Congratulations, Susan!!)

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!
