So excited that Can You Case It? are back weekly and with sketch challenges making their long awaited return.
I love sketch challenges and here is our first one for 2017.
Okay, so maybe this one may have been my suggestion. It was probably easy to spot as you may remember I like the alternate angles of layered cardstock.
Here is my design inspiration for you.
I made a simple hello card with lots of bling. I’m so in love with the Glimmer paper stack right now, I used it here for my butterfly in Sweet Sugarplum. As if he wasn’t blingy enough, I had to put a Rhinestone on his back!
The layer beneath the butter is Mint Macaron and here I have embossed it with one of the patterns that come from the Floral Affection set. The folder is a frame, but here I have used just one half. Then I coordinated the next layer with some Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and finished off with a Basic Black flag.
A couple of posts ago I was looking for a little “hello” stamp in my collection. At the time, I couldn’t find the right size I needed so used a marker and part of another stamp to get the right sized sentiment. Well guess what…. I found one that works… There is one hiding in the Banners for You stamp set!
Also, I rotated the sketch 180° so that the elements where in the bottom right corner. It just seemed to work better while I was in design process mode. You can rotate the sketch 90° or 270° if you wish and see what shapes and patterns they create for you.
Now that we are back to weekly challenges, this one closes Midday next Saturday, March 18th (AEDT). Check out all the details here on the Can You Case It? website and while you’re there, don’t forget to check out all the amazing inspiration from the design team too. When you have created your masterpiece, head over to our Facebook Challenge group and load up your image or link to your blog in the comments section of the challenge post.
Looking forward to seeing what you create.
Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
