One Sketch – Three Cards

I was inspired to create some different cards using the basic layout of yesterday’s card.  I realized after I finished that none were birthday cards, but they were cards I’ll need sooner or later!

Get Your Santa On, Stampin' Up!I haven’t had time to play much with my first Holiday catalog order, so I decided to break open a new set – Get Your Santa On.  It has so many stamps and sayings, and it’s another photopolymer set, so it’s a little less expensive (always good when you’re addicted!).  I colored the Santa suit with Blendabilities, and used another new Holiday catalog product – the Lucky Stars embossing folder – on one of the panels.  I added a tiny bit of Encore Silver Metallic ink to the raised stars.  I added ink to the Northern Flurry embossed snowflakes, too.  Sadly, that just made them look like they had fallen through serious smog, so I used the debossed side of the card stock instead.

This one is for when you have “one of those days.”  Life's Adventure, Stampin' Up!

I flipped the orientation for this one, so it’s landscape instead of portrait.  No reason – except I already had some strips of designer series paper cut, and they were only 4-1/2″ long.  This is the little fox from Life’s Adventure.  And I bought “What’s Up” just for the sentiment on this card.  I just had a feeling I’d be using it a lot, especially in a scrapbook.

And, finally – a card for my little Miss Amelia, who will be arriving soon!  I hope you know that almost all of my posts from now until I stop blogging will have something about grandkids.  Well, just Miss A at first – how excited I am, how we can’t wait until we see her, how beautiful she is, bragging about something brilliant she’s done…that kind of thing.

Something for Baby, Baby's First, Stampin' Up!Of course, I used the Lullaby designer series paper, Something for Baby stamp set and Baby’s First framelits.  The sentiment is one of the Teeny Tiny Wishes, but I added the comma, because, well, because I had to.  It’s a sickness.  The circle behind the onesie and booties is one of the Project Life Little Moments card collection.

So – your turn!  What will you design with this sketch?  Feel free to send me pictures of your creations, and I’ll post them on future blogs!

Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.
