Late Sketch Card


Better late than never, right? I loved all of the cards that I'd been seeing that used Beate's WSC33, and right away...I knew the stamps I wanted to use. Of course I didn't get to it soon enough, and I noticed a gorgeous card of Valerie's that had the prettiest color combo. So I'd made up my mind what I was doing. I just didn't get on it right away. I'm late with my card, but here it is anyhow.

Lizzie Anne Designs
had a new release last month, and the "Far East" set was a 'must have' for me. The sentiment is from "Say it in Script", also a new release. I stamped the images with Adirondack Espresso, and colored them with my Copic Sketch markers. They are trimmed and mounted with Dimensionals onto my layers of squares that were die cut with my Nestabilities. The sentiment was punched out with my SU Circle punches. The ribbon is Chocolate Chip Taffeta. I used my Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets and the centers are clear rhinestone brads from my Pretties kit. Okay...are you wondering how my Crop-A-Dile could reach that far into my card to set those eyelets. It was easy, because I used my new Big Bite. That thing rocks!!

Thanks so much for visiting!! I need to get more stamping done...so I best be going. ;)

This is an absolutely gorgeous card! And....I followed your link to the Big Bite. How cool is that! I've never even heard of it before. And it sits on the table. I wouldn't even have to try to manhandle it with my small hands.
