S& S Sketch #62 Challenge - Triple Cards


Today there are three different sketches over at OWH Stars and Stamps in honor of Sandy's birthday. Happy Birthday Sandy.

OWH was also asking for more "Mom" cards so I did all of my sketch cards for Moms today. For my first card base I used SU's Rich Razzleberry card stock. I ran that through the Big Shot with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. My image was computer generated and the stampings in the corners are from a SU set titled Priceless. I matted that onto some Basic Grey designer paper. My white strip was run through the Big Shot with SU's square lattice ef. The sentiment on the heart is from SU's Fancy Flexible Phrases which is retired. I added three little gems for some bling.

The card base for my second card is SU's Very Vanilla that has been run through the Big Shot with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dot ef. I also dotted the SU's Mellow Moss horizontal strip with the same ef. The image piece was made up from two stamp SU sets. The wordings are from Well Scripted (retired) and the flowers and leaves are from Vintage Vogue. I added some black gems and used the Mellow Moss marker to add some dots to this layer also.

For my third and final card for today I used SU's Basic Black card stock as my base . The image was stamped with SU's Fast & Fabulous set in Mellow Moss and Pretty In Pink. The heart is punched out of Pretty In Pink card stock and stamped with another Fancy Flexible Phrase. I added some white dots around the edge of the small heart to help it stand out and then I mounted that on Basic Grey dp. The vertical strip of designer paper is also Basic Grey.

Wow - SU, Basic Grey, and Cuttlebug seemed to be my favorites for today. I wish you a great Sunday and I thank you for spending a little time here today.

    I was surfing on Ebay earlier today and spotted the SU! stamp set you used (on your 2nd card) in an auction. There was a bidding frenzy on it, and it sold for a whopping $38.00!!! WOWSAH!!!
