weekend sketches

Thank you so much for all your support for our new PTI blog - so glad you all like it!

Here are three cards I made based on sketches over the weekend using the Tart and Tangy set and Summer Picnic papers.

First up - apples! This is my take on Beate's sketch, this was more challenging than the others but I love doing it. I pierced around each of the horizontal panels with the paper piercing tool and mat from the crafter's tool kit. The edges of the vertical panel were punched with the scallop edge punch. The sentiment is from the One of a Kind set, positioned with my old friend the stamp-a-ma-jig.

Recipe: Stamps - Tart and Tangy/One of a Kind
Ink - Real Red/Old Olive markers

Card/Papers - Whisper White/Real Red/Bashful Blue/Old Olive/Summer Picnic DSP

Other - Crafter's Tool Kit/Real Red grosgrain ribbon/button
/red floss/Scallop Edge punch

This is for Amy's sketch challenge - I coloured the strawberries with my SU markers and again used the stamp-a-ma-jig for placement. Sentiment is from the Circle of Friendship set, pierced around the edges as on the image and Old Olive panel. The long white vertical panel is embossing with my (much-loved!) Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Stamps - Tart and Tangy/Circle of Friendship
Ink - Real Red/Old Olive markers
Card/Papers - Whisper White/Real Red/Bashful Blue/Old Olive/Summer Picnic DSP
Other - Crafter's Tool Kit/Real Red Grosgrain ribbon/ circle punches - 1 inch, 1 1/4 inch, 1 3/8 inch/Swiss Dots Embossing folder/Cuttlebug

And finally, Taylor's sketch. You can't see from the picture but the cherries are coated with Glossy Accents so they're very shiny! I love this matching cherry paper from the Summer Picnic Paper Pack. The ribbon is threaded through holes created with a Making Memories slot punch.

Stamps - Tart and Tangy
Ink - Real Red/Old Olive markers
Card/Papers - Whisper White/Old Olive/Bashful Blue/Summer Picnic DSP
Other - Crafter's Tool Kit/Real Red Grosgrain ribbon/ corner rounder punch/petite oval nestabilites/scallop edge punch/Bashful Blue ribbon/slot punch

Thanks so much for visiting - I haven't forgotten about a blog candy so will get that sorted very soon!
