More Sketches, More Cards

This will be a quick post so up first is the sketch from Skipping Stones Design that is from Dina Kowal.:

I followed the sketch pretty much the way it was.

 Stamps are dollar stamps and I used white embossing powder on the ribbon image. I used Memento ink for the sentiment and three gold gemstone stars. I also did pen stitching with a gold pen.
I inked the edges of the card with Faded Jeans distress ink. All cardstock is Creative Memories as well as the star punch I used on the border.
Next is the sketch from Freshly Made:
It is an easy sketch to use and here is what I came up with:

 Again I used the Star embossing folder from Cuttlebug and sprayed it with Perfect Pearls. I matted it with a light blue and added three small pearls to the center of the stars. (I originally had four and didn't like how it looked so I removed one after I took the photo.)
 I die cut two stars and layered them together and stamped the sentiment with Watermark VersaMark ink and used white embossing powder.
I tried to show the shimmer of the Perfect Pearls but it is so hard to catch with the camera.
Next and final sketch I used is from Unscripted Sketches which is a new blog that I ran across this week:
Another easy and fun sketch. Here is my card:
 Loved this sketch and how card turned out. I used Hero Art stamps. To get the glitter strips I used double sided tape in varying widths and rubbed Martha Stewart glitter over it.
 Love the look of the glitter but hate the mess it makes :) The rest  was simple. Just die cut the white star and stamped the flag and sentiment.
I had stamped the 4th of July on the star but messed up. So instead of cutting and stamping another star I just found a scrap of red cs and stamped the sentiment on that and put it over the mistake. Sometimes mistakes are good.
Gotta run. Have a great day!


  1. I love the clean look of your cards, Teresa. Uncluttered and a pleasure to look at. I haven't quite mastered it yet, until then I'll continue to gawk at your creations. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love how you used the sketches! So patriotic!!

  3. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog. I see you've been real busy with preparations for 4th July. That embossing folder is perfect and you can't beat blue/white or red/white/blue as a colour scheme. Great work :)
