Playing with Sketches

Hello everyone~
It was a very busy day plus I had to watch American Idol tonight! After I tacked my kids in the bed, I finally sat down and am typing about the cards I made today.
I used There She Goes stamps and played with 2 sketches I was itching to play. Both sketches were really creative and I used many layers for both of them. They are definitely too heavy to mail with just one stamp, lol.

今日は、この間から使いたかった2つのスケッチと、There She Goesのスタンプを使って、カードを2枚作りました。スケッチは、どちらもとても凝ったものだったので、私も沢山レイヤーを使いました。切手1枚では、絶対に重過ぎて送れません(笑)

The sketch is from Stamps and Smiles Sketch challenge (SASSC5). The stamps I used were from the brand new set, Slow and Steady and the popular set, Special Delivery. I think the cupcakes on the shell added an extra humor for the card :) All the images were colored with Copic markers and the designer papers are the retired SU papers that I found in my stash. The ribbons were tied around the oval clips and I just placed them to the 2 corners.

このスケッチは、Stamp and Smiles スケッチチャレンジ(SASSC5)からので、使用したスタンプは、新しいセットSlow and Steadyと、人気のセットSpecial Deliveryからのです。カップケーキをカタツムリの貝に乗せたことで、もう少し面白さを与えたかな:)イメージは、コピックを使って色を付け、奥の方に眠っていた廃盤になったSUのデザイナーペーパーを使いました。リボンは、オーバルクリップ二結び、それを2つの角に付けました。

Stamps: Slow and Steady, Special Delivery (TSG)
Paper: chocolate brown, rose red, old olive, SU Petals & Paisleys DP, (SU), white cardstock (PTI)
Ink: Palette noir black (Superior), Copic markers, brown marker
Accessories: SU ribbons, MM oval clips, CB embossing folder, SU oval punch

The sketch for this card is from Mojo Monday sketch 77 (Mojo77) and I also used SCS Color Combination challenge 209 (CC209). The beautiful stamps are Flowers of Happiness. The set makes me bring joy everytime I use :) All the image were colored with Copics and the flowers were layered a few times. Yes, it takes time to cut all the pieces but the result is worth it!

このスケッチは、Mojo Monday スケッチ77(Mojo77)を使い、SCSのカラーコンビネーション209(CC209)も組み合わせています。この素敵なスタンプは、Flowers of Happinessのセットからので、いつも使うのがとっても楽しいお気に入りです。イメージは、コピックで色をつけ、花は、何度か重ねました。切り取るのに時間がかかりますが、綺麗なものが結果として出来上がるので、遣り甲斐があります。

Stamps: Flowers of Happiness (TSG)
Paper: rose red, basic black, always artichoke, whiper white (SU) Boxer dp (BG)
Ink: Palette noir black (Superior), whipser white craft (SU), Copic markers
Accessories: Jolee's rhinestones, SU round tab punch, Nestabilities

Thank you for looking~ Have a wonderfu day!
