Retro Sketches #75

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
 Anything Goes

I made this birthday card keeping in mind a second cousin who just loves the scooters, more Italian Vespa style (Roman Holiday anybody?). I know she will love it! All Paper Smooches stamps here (Spiffy Scooters). A bit of Webster's Pages paper on the bottom, and a balloon die cut from My Favorite Things. The scooter is colored in with Copic markers and cut out.

S'More Love



CAS- ology
Week #55
Camp


For my camp I thought I would cook up some s'mores for a summer love. You can never have enough love. For this OLC card I did a bit a shadowing to add some depth to the marshmallow and chocolate bar with a Copic T1 marker. They are stamped out in PTI Dark Chocolate Ink. All the hearts are stamped in Memento Love Letter Red.

Hopscotch Hi


OWH Sketch 183
Here is todays sketch challenge. I used some Basic Grey Hopscotch Paper. Those tiny triangles caught my eye and decided to play them up. I pulled my triangle die cut and only  used a snippet of it on the side of the card. The small piece of paper does contain all patterns of paper in the larger sections if you looed really close! Have great Sunday.

Christmas Note



CAS- ology
Gold

I made a little Christmas note. What better than to go with gold than Christmas. I pulled the Musical interlude die from Memory Box and was going for a golden waved feel.
This was good reminder that I will need to order more gold and silver product for the holiday card making fun!

Picture Perfect



Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge
Picture Perfect
I saw this picture and at first it was where do go with that? After looking at Jennifer Mullen's card which I thought was terrific, I was so motivated to create (thank you!!). I went with a die cut thanks in black. I started out with a piece of neon yellow paper and used a distress marker (Tim Holtz, Spiced Marmalade) colored it up then blended it with water to give some intense) I put the thanks die inside the circle die taped it securely then taped to the paper. Only then cutting down to the bottom of letters. Carefully remove the pieces and trim as needed. Then for added dimension do another die cut of the sentiment and adhere it the piece. I also added shadowing under the lettering as well.
Then I added some leafy die cuts which one of them has been doubled. Then there is a Winterberry Sprig by Memory Box tucked in there holding a tiny gem. So more ideas came to mind but just so little time!

Lots of fun going on over here ! So I made the background clouds in Memento Summer Sky ink using a Picasso stencil from Dreamweaver. The sweet little kites are  die cut from Memory Box using paper from Basic Grey Knee Highs paper. They just make most mod looking kites!
