CREATIVE JUICE – Week #36
Creative Juice-Week #36! Can we talk about how stinkin’ cute these cards are? If you know someone who has recently adopted a new puppy or kitten, you will bless their socks off with this card. I was just so tickled with how this “new arrival” card turned out.
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 circle could be any shape you wish
- The banner could be a stamped border, Designer Paper, or how about embossed 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 used the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends combo to color in my puppy and kitten. I simply dotted on some Dark Crumb Cake around the “fluffy” parts of the animals and then blended with the Light Crumb Cake.
That ruffled ribbon was a sweet little accent!
- Very Vanilla Thick – 8 ½” x 5 ½”, score and fold at 4 ¼”
- Very Vanilla – 1″ x 4 ¼” and 2 ½” x 2 ½”
- Subtles Designer Series Paper (Petal Pink) – 4″ x 5 ¼” plus a 2 ¼” circle

Can you tell I was just so tickled with today’s card? It’s not what I set out to create but that is what I love most about Creative Juice. I set out with one idea in my head and land on another.
I hope you can spend some time creating this weekend. Creativity — It’s good for the soul!
