2 Cards 4 You

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you have some fun planned for yourself. I will be spending the day going to swimming lessons and playing with my boys. Last night I was so inspired by Kazan's sketch on 2sketches4you that I created two cards with it. If you ever need a good starting point for a card, I would definitely recommend checking out the 2sketches4you site. Every Monday, Kazan or Laura put up a fabulous new sketch and their Design Team creates some beautiful samples too! Here is my first card:

All of the patterned paper is from Scenic Route's Grafton line. I popped the center panel up on 3D foam squares, along with the flowers and leaf flourish. I also bent the petals of the larger flower to give it a little more dimension. Other details: Stamp: Michaels $1 bin, Cardstock: The Paper Company - Textured Mandarin, Making Memories Crystal Brads, A Muse Mini Dot Twinkle Stickers

Next, I made a Halloween card. I love how one sketch can inspire two completely different cards.

All of the paper for this card is from Bo Bunny. I tore around the sentiment and two center panels to give the card a more distressed look. I also popped them up on 3D foam squares. I bent the tree branches, popped the green circle with the cat up on a foam square, and used Doodlebug's black paper frill for some added dimension. The stamp is another great find from Michaels $1 bin! Thanks for visiting today! I will post again soon!

It IS amazing how one sketch can inspire such different cards. These are both fabulous, but I agree with Lorraine...those flowers are out of this world! I love the colors and the plaid and the flowing flourish along the bottom edge. So beautiful!
