Ever since Tami Mayberry was a guest designer for Skipping Stones, I have been hooked on their design sketches. They are just my style...not overly clean and simple, but, not overly frou-frou. Just right.
I needed a birthday card and sketch #64 fit the bill.
Pretty simple and straightforward. Patterned paper from MME, cardstock from my stash. Used distress ink in tea rose and memento potter's clay. PTI sentiment and EK Success border punch. Colored the gemstones from my stash with copics. And that flower? Well, Cosmo Cricket's new Glubers that were announced at CHA have me hook, line and sinker. No, I didn't use a Gluber(a super-sized glue dot!)....but, I kind of made one myself with a punched cardstock circle and some red line tape. Took some ribbon and just started ruffling it from the outer edge of the circle spiraling in towards the center. I used a mini glue dot to finish off the center loop and hide the cut edge. I think it turned out pretty cute for a first try! It was so easy and simple to do....I think I'll make lots more!
As always, thanks for peeking!
