I was inspired by the APPLE in the inspiration photo.  With it approaching Back to School soon I thought it was a perfect time to start on some Teacher cards.  You can never have too many of these on hand. 

For this card I created an Apple shaped card using the Red Delicious Die-Namics die from My Favorite Things and a sentiment from the Class Act stamp set from Reverse Confetti.

Retro Sketches | RS#174

Happy Saturday Everyone!!
 
It's time for a NEW sketch over at Retro Sketches!!
 
This week I created a card featuring Lawn Fawn's recently released Color My World stamp set.  As soon as I saw this weeks sketch it immediately made me think of the fun crayons in the set.  I used copic markers to color the crayons and scrap pieces of cardstock to create the background panel.  This sketch is a perfect way to use up those scraps we all have.

 Supplies:
Paper: White CS (Recollections), Pure Poppy CS(Papertrey Ink), Orange Zest (Papertrey Ink), Spring Moss (Papertrey Ink), Summer Sunrise (Papertrey Ink), Spring Rain (Papertrey Ink); Stamps: Color My World (Lawn Fawn); Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento); Coloring Medium: Copic Markers; Tools: Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables (Lawn Fawn), Scor-buddy, Paper Trimmer (Fiskars), Big Shot (Sizzix); Other: Twine, Glossy Accents (Ranger), ATG Tape, Foam Tape

Retro Sketches | RS #172

 
Happy Saturday Everyone!!
 
It's time for a NEW sketch over at Retro Sketches!!

This weeks sketch is based off a card I created when I was guest designing over at The Greeting Farm.  You can find the original card HERE.  I decided to change things up a bit and created a pretty friendship card using one of my favorite butterfly dies from Memory Box.  The papers are from the Now And Then 6x6 pad by My Minds Eye that I scored 50% off at Michaels last week.  Gotta love finding some clearance goodies!  The stamps are from the Salutations set from Paper Smooches.  I will also be entering my card in the Anything Goes Challenge over at Paper Smooches Sparks.

Supplies:
Paper: White CS (Recollections), Night Of Navy CS (SU!), Velum, Now and Then 6x6 Pad (My Minds Eye); Stamps: Salutations (Paper Smooches); Ink: Black (Simon Says Stamps); Tools: Pierced Circle Stax (Die-Namics), Fishtail Flags Stax (Die-Namics), Darla Butterfly (Memory Box); Other: Button, Twine (Hemptique), Rhinestones, ATG Tape, Glue Dots, Foam Tape
