Wahoo! It’s Friday and that means it’s time for my favorite segment here at Simply Simple Stamping – CREATIVE JUICE! Today I will present Week #28 in the series and let me tell you, I had a ball with today’s sketch. This card turned out amazing!
Each week I serve up a big glass of CREATIVE JUICE to get your creative juices flowing. Let me share this week’s card inspiration.
- Get creative with your color combinations.
- The torn edge could be a sponged boarder, torn Designer Paper or cardstock.
You can print out the sketches each week OR you can save them to your computer. By doing this you will have sketch ideas at your fingertips, whenever you need them. Just click the pic to download or print it. Remember, you can always find them here if you go to the ‘Categories’ (located on the right side bar) and click on Creative Juice.
Here is what I came up with for today’s CREATIVE JUICE sketch…
I literally squealed when I finished this card. It was nothing like what I had pictured in my head but it turned out SO much better!
I went off the grid on this sketch. Originally when I created the sketch, I had planned on a torn piece of cardstock adhered onto the card but I chose to tear the card instead. Love the look!
I love how the “hello” turned out. I didn’t color the inside of the words so they kind of POP off the page.
Pardon me while I SCREAM how much I love the Stampin’ Blends! Look at that cool shading! It has given me a LOVE for coloring (which I was never a big fan of). The Blends are just the most amazing coloring tools I have ever used.
Can you see the embossed cardstock? That came from the Serene Garden Bundle. There is a die that leaves that beautiful embossed image.
Here are the measurements for my JUST A FRIENDLY HELLO card but remember, these measurements are not set in stone. Get creative with your measurements!
- Granny Apple Green – 11″ x 4 ¼”, score and fold at 5 ½”
- Whisper White – 4″ x 5 ¼” and 2″ x 3 ½”
- Berry Burst – 2 ⅛” x 4 ¼”
Here are the Stampin’ Up products I used on the JUST A FRIENDLY HELLO card. I am in love with the Serene Garden Bundle! Such amazing framelits! Want to order? Just click a pic!
