Freshly made sketches #354

Hi there!

It's time for my second post as guest designer at Freshly made sketches !

So many ways to interpret this sketch... all depending on which shapes or elements you decide on!

I rotated the sketch to landscape orientation and this is what I came up with :

I used:

  • Design ID #203104, Design ID #203107, Design ID #203110 from the Silhouette store
  • Mask cut with my Silhouette cameo
  • Distress Oxide inks 
  • Black rhinestones
  • Foam tape for dimension

I love the fact that cutting files for the cameo can double up as digital stamps ! Some of the cutting files available are designed with too much detail to cut in proportions suitable for greeting cards. No problem at all... just use the color fill option ( I used black ) , create a small offset and only cut the outline... and there you have a digital stamp!

I am so exited to see what you create with Linda's sketch this week!

I love how you've used the sketch to make the strips appear to be shelves with cute succulent plants. And I love the pops of bright colors against the white base. Beautifully done!

Linda Callahan said...

So clever how you rotated the sketch and made bright shelves! Sweet as can be!

I LOVE how you took the sketch and made this lovely, graphic card. Perhaps its due to being an expat living outside your home country, but you have such a gift for creating the most amazing cards with "basic" supplies. It always seems that after I stop by your lovely block, I find myself looking at my own stash with new eyes. If I ran the crafting world, I would hire you to teach an online class titled something like: "Designing Elegant Cards with Everyday Supplies". Your just know how to create magic! :D

So cute! I'm intrigued by the sketch and I love what you've done with it. You and the team certainly have some inspiring samples!

It's such a good idea to use the Silhouette to create digital stamps and then cut them out on the offset. They look fantastic on your card!

This is such a great card! I love how you've rotated the sketch and I love those cacti! So cute!

I love how you combined colorful shelves for your black and white cacti. That's a great look and a great card!
