Unscripted Sketches #139

Happy Saturday and Happy New Year’s Eve! I’d like to share my final card as a member of the Unscripted Sketches design team…I’m transitioning to a new opportunity in 2012!

After being a member of the team for over a year, I thought it was a good time to step aside and create a spot for a new designer to step in and become a part of the team!

Unscripted Sketches was the first design team that I joined, and I’m so honored to have had the opportunity to create with the fabulous ladies on the team! I wish each of them the best, and I plan to play along with Unscripted Sketches again soon, and I hope you’ll find time to play along, too!

Here’s my card! I took the picture when we were traveling for Christmas…since I didn’t have my light box with me, I had to improvise!

Supplies: card base, patterned paper (Basic Grey – Out of Print), image and sentiment stamps (Priscilla – Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps), embossing folder (Sizzix), adhesive gems (aMuse Studio), ink (Tsukineko Brilliance), Copic markers.

Here’s our sketch for this week (I rotated it for my card):

Here’s my card for this week:

Supplies: fox image and sentiment stamp (Lawn Fawn), flower image stamp (aMuse Studio), patterned paper (My Mind’s Eye mini pad – I think it’s the “Be Merry” collection, which is retired, but somehow I found a mega pad at a local craft store.), Copic markers, embossing powder, adhesive gems, card base, deckle scissors.

Unscripted Sketches #137

Happy Saturday and welcome back for another Unscripted Sketches challenge! I changed a few things on this week’s sketch and made this festive card:
Supplies: card base, image and sentiment stamps (Paper Smooches – Santa Paws), ink (Tsukineko Brilliance – Graphite Black), paper (Echo Park – Holly Jolly Christmas), Copic markers, cardstock, twine (Divine Twine).
I love this stamp set! I usually color my dogs grey (black doesn’t show up that well) to match my dog, Midnight, who is a black dachshund mix. I love that the dog in this set is a dachshund!
Here’s our sketch for this week (I rotated it for my card and placed the sentiment in the smaller rectangle):

I hope you’ll find time to play along with us this week! This is a very versatile sketch that can be modified for lots of different creations!

Unscripted Sketches #135

Happy Saturday! It’s time for another Unscripted Sketches challenge!

Just when I thought I was done with my Christmas cards for this year, I’m pretty sure there are a few more left to make! I think the hardest part is figuring out what the design will be! This week’s sketch at Unscripted Sketches would be a very easy one to work with!

Here’s my card (I rotated the sketch):

Supplies: image stamp (Snowbunny Lucy – Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps), sentiment stamp (Imaginisce), snowflake stamp (aMuse Studio), ink (VersaMark, Tsukineko Brilliance – Graphite Black, Stampin’ Up! – Chocolate Chip), embossing powder, gem brad, Copic markers, patterned paper (My Mind’s Eye), card base.
Here’s our sketch for this week! Instead of the four smaller pieces, I substituted one larger accent.

Unscripted Sketches #133

Happy Saturday and welcome back for another Unscripted Sketches challenge! This week, we have an optional piggyback challenge for you…no pre-patterned paper! If you stamp, doodle, or emboss solid cardstock, that will work; just no pre-patterned designer paper.

Keep in mind, the piggyback is optional, and if you use patterned paper, but still use the Unscripted Sketch as your inspiration, it won’t disqualify you from being considered for this week’s Top 3! It’s an additional challenge to stretch your creativity!

My first instinct was to skip the piggyback this week, but I took on the extra challenge and made my own patterned paper and stamped a pattern on different scraps of cardstock for the bottom half of my card. I embossed another piece of cardstock for the top half of my card:

Supplies: card base, cardstock scraps (Stampin’ Up!, shiny cardstock – not sure of the manufacturer, but I bought it at JoAnn), image stamps (Lizzie Anne Designs), sentiment stamps (Paper Smooches), Copic markers, foam tape, glitter gel pen.
…and here’s our sketch for this week! There’s no right or wrong way to play along, as long as you’re using the Unscripted Sketch as the inspiration for your creation!

Happy Saturday and welcome back for another Unscripted Sketches challenge!

If you’re just finding Unscripted Sketches, every Saturday morning we post a sketch for the week. Flip the sketch, rotate it…make a card, a scrapbook page, or anything your imagination comes up with! There’s no right or wrong way, as long as you’re using the Unscripted Sketch as the inspiration and basis of your creation!

Here’s my card! I rotated the sketch to the side. Instead of a large title, I used a strip of navy patterned paper.  I arranged the image of the magical items and the sentiment in the place of the two rectangles on the sketch, and put my main image in the larger open area.

Supplies: image and sentiment stamps (Magical Mathilda, Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps), Copic markers, ink (Tsukineko Brilliance – Graphite Black), patterned papers (Bo Bunny), foam squares, gold gel pen, Star Dust Stickles, card base.
