7 Days 7 Sketches Day 2 and 3

Hi Everyone,

playing with 7 Days 7 Sketches - onto day 2 and 3:

 First DAY 2, of course....I had a LOT of trouble with that sketch. My first try was so bad, it was unsalvageable - almost unheard for me. I threw it out. My second try is okay. I should have probably been not so focused on Father's Day, but whatever....

I think the sketch is easier for a layout than a card - but that is probably just a meager excuse.....

Materials: stamps: Hero Arts - Shoot for the Moon (Cl773), Papertrey - ancient Fathers Day set, Neat&Tangled - big splatter
Simon Says square stitched die
Dylusion ink spray splatters
doodled frame-not a supply, just hand drawn

Now DAY 3:

A much easier sketch for me :)))

Papertrey - ancient Fathers Day set - cut away that frame that you see in the above card, should have cut if off for that one, but still was to intimidated to touch the Holy Grail of my Papertrey stamps....
Hero Arts - Shoot for the Moon (Cl773)
 QuicKutz dies - made the star stencil with it and cut out a smaller one
MME patterned paper
silver beads and embroidery thread

Happy Stamping!

Das lese ich mit sehr viel Beruhigung, das auch Du Dich mal mit einem Sketch schwer tust ..*grins*, da ich ja sonst immer staunend vor Deinem Blog sitze und mich frage, wo nimmt sie die Ideen her? Aber am Ende wieder eine Punktlandung, tolle Karten, tolle Umsetzungen ... perfekt!!
LG GUndi

Hallo Cornelia,
du hast wenigstens auf der ersten Karte an die Spritzer gedacht!!!
Bei mir sind sie in Vergessenheit geraten :-(((
Die zweite Karte mit den verschiedenfarbigen Sternen gefällt mir seeeeehr gut.
Klasse Farbabstufungen hast du gestempelt.
Eigentlich ist alles toll, man kann nicht nur das eine oder andere rauspicken.
Genieß den Sonntag,

Very nice! I love this idea of using the ombre effect on multiple stamped images. Great job! Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.

Cynthia said...

Job well done with the challenge this week. These cards are super cute! Thanks for playing along with us at The Friday Mashup!

I don't know how you come up with these amazing cards, but keep it up. You inspire me all the time. And you've just done it again. Woot!

Mel said...

BEIDE Karten sind toll <3

cm said...

From where I'm sitting, a whole lot of 'amazing' is before me! Both are fabulous (somehow I can't picture you creating any 'duds'). Love the 'space' theme that runs through both. The stripe of triangle border...what impact it adds!

Taunya Butler said...

Impressive cards - love the second one - the cool colors and that star just make it so fun and interesting to look at!! Love the awesome details and just WOW - what a great job!! So glad you joined us over at DoubleClick Skittles for the Father's Day/Man card challenge!!
