UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday!  Today is the last of Carol's sketches.  She is stepping down as coordinator.  Don't worry!  She will be joining us as a team member. All the other team members will be taking turns creating sketches each month.  It should be fun!   My month is October.  :)  Thanks, Carol, for 151 great sketches!  Here is the sketch for today.  As you can see, I turned it on its side.  I know you're shocked.  LOL

Here's what I created.  Now I just need to find a little one with a birthday!  :)  

The card base is Real Red followed by a piece of Whisper White.  I ran the Whisper White through the Big Shot in the Stripes embossing folder.  I brayered the folder with Bashful Blue to match the seal.  I used the Clear Circle die to cut the Big Top Birthday DSP and the Scallop Circle die for the Real Red border.  The sentiment is stamped in Tempting Turquoise with Dazzling Details (Holiday Mini) added to the star. It is punched out with the 1 3/4" Circle punch and layered onto a Daffodil Delight 2 3/8" Scallop punch.

Now you need to head on over to Ruthie's to see what she created or you can go back to the UDI blog for links to all the team members.

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Word Play.  Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Bashful Blue.  Paper- Whisper White, Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Big Top Birthday DSP.  Accessories- Big Shot, Stripes embossing folder,  Scallop Circle die, Clear Circle die, 1 3/4" Circle punch, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch, Dazzling Details (Holiday Mini), brayer.

UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday!  It's time for another sketch challenge!   As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew just what I had to do...flip it on its side.  :)  Do you see what I see?   Santa Clause!  

The card base is Real Red.  The belt is Basic Black with a Brushed Silver buckle.  The sentiment is from Word Play, and it's embossed with Silver EP.  I took some creative liberty with the sketch and added the Whisper White coat trim.  That's it.  A simple and easy card, but I love it!  It turned out just like it was in my head!  :)  

Let me know what you think and then head on over to the UDI blog to see what the others created for your viewing pleasure!

UDI Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday!  I finally finished my card for the UDI Sketch Challenge.  Life has been crazy, busy around here.  I really do need to start getting my card done earlier in the week.  ;)  Here is the sketch from Carol.  She said it was an easy one, but I had a really hard time with it.  Maybe because I was using it as a sympathy card.  (A co-worker lost her mom Thursday night.)

Here is the final product.  I'm not sure if I like it.  The picture doesn't help.  LOL  All the layers really are straight.  I don't know why it looks wonky.  

I used Not Quite Navy, Whisper White and Paisley Petals DSP for all the layers.  The card base was runt through the Big Shot in the Stripes embossing folder.  The long strips were adhered together and then run through the Big Shot in the Snowburst embossing folder (Holiday Mini).  The small layers were adhered together and topped with a Beveled Windowpane.  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. 

Head on over to the UDI blog and see what everyone else created for you today.  

Enjoy what's left of your weekend!

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Paper- Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Paisley Petals DSP.  Ink- Not Quite Navy.  Accessories-  Big Shot, Snowburst and Stripes embossing folders,  Word Window and Modern Label punches, Movers & Shapers die, Beveled Windowpane, Whisper White taffeta, mini glue dots.

UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge

Happy Saturday!  It's time for another sketch challenge on the UDI blog!  Here's what Carol gave us to work with today.  I left it just as she drew it.  :)

I needed a birthday card, so I decided to use the sketch for it.  The first thing that popped into my head was color-blocking.  I couldn't settle on colors, so I went in another direction.  ;)  Since it's a birthday card, I pulled out my retired DSP, Newsprint.  I knew the piece with all the numbers would be perfect.  I started with a Very Vanilla card base sponged with Crumb Cake ink.  I sponged the DSP and mounted it to Basic Black card stock.  A small piece of Basic Black 1/4" grosgrain ribbon in the top right corner takes care of that element of the sketch.  I used the Wish Big sentiment from Word Play.  I colored it with markers so I could make the star a nice pop of color.  I punched it out with the 1 3/4" Circle punch and sponged it with Crumb Cake before adhering it to a 2  3/8" Scalloped Circle punch of Basic Black.  I used the Faux Suede technique on the scalloped circle.  You may be able to see it better if you click on the picture.  The sentiment piece is adhered with dimensionals.  That's it.  Easy peasy.

Let me know what you think, and then head on over to the UDI blog to see what the other team members created for you.  

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Word Play.  Ink- Real Red, Basic Black.  Paper- Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Newsprint DSP (retired).  Accessories- 2 3/8" Scalloped Circle punch, 1 3/4" Circle punch, 1/4" Basic Black grosgrain, sponge, dimensionals.
