Welcome to Week #3 in my new series, CREATIVE JUICE! I’m so glad you are enjoying it. CREATIVE JUICE is a fun and new way that I will be sharing sketch ideas with you but not just one, but four, sketches. The sketches are the same but laid out differently to help you see the sketch at a different angle.
Each week I will be serving 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
- Those dots could be a speckle, rhinestones, sequins, or even a stamped image
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…
This is not anything close to what I pictured in my head when I set out to create. Isn’t it funny how that happens?
I just received my Stampin’ Up order last week and this bundle, the Charming Cafe bundle, was a part of it. Oh my gosh! I love it so much!!!
I didn’t even use the cutest part of this bundle, the sweet little table & chairs or the window! I’m so glad I invested in this one. It’s going to be a favorite for sure!
Do you notice the sentiment and how it’s sponged? This is so cool! This bundle has a die that will perfectly die cut the center of the border. I sponged the edges of it before inlaying it back into the die cut. I love the look!
Here are the measurements for my CHARMING CAFÉ card but remember, these measurements are not set in stone. Get creative with your measurements!
- Blushing Bride – 11″ x 4 ¼”, score and fold at 5 ½”
- Very Vanilla – 4 ¼” x 5 ½” (die cut the floral border and cut the remaining down to 2 ⅛” x 4 ¼”)
- Blushing Bride ribbon – 6″
Here are the Stampin’ Up supplies I used on today’s card. If you would like to add anything to your next order, just click a pic and add it to your Shopping Bag!
- Also available in Wood Mount
That wraps things up for this week! I hope you enjoyed the projects I shared with you throughout the week – two free tutorials featuring the Heartfelt Blooms Sale-a-Bration stamp set, a great tip on storing your framelits & stamp set, a super fun triple fold card, and today’s Creative Juice sketch. If you missed any of the projects this week, take some time this weekend to go back and take a look.
