Today I am going to reveal one of my Design Secrets by showing you two different cards that I made with one Sketch.
When I get stuck in the creative process, I like to select a Stampin’ Up! stamp set, a package of Designer Series Paper and a Sketch. You can find sketches for cards and scrapbook pages online. I have printed off lots of my favorite ones and keep them in a binder.
The first step that I take is to select the colors of Cardstock that are in the Designer Series Paper. One of the great things about Stampin’ Up! is all of their Cardstock and Designer series papers coordinate with the Stampin’ Up!’s 53 colors. For each color there is ink, cardstock and a marker. Also the ribbons and other embellishments are designed around these colors so it makes coordinating a project very easy!
The first card that I made uses the Country Home Stamp set with the Come to Gather Designer Series paper. The second card uses the set A Good Man with Woven Threads Designer series paper.
Each card has a base that made from an 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of cardstock scored at 4 1/4″ and folded in half to make the card base. The Country Home card uses Mint Macron Cardstock for the base. The Good Man card uses whisper white for the card base.
The second layer is cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″. I used a piece of the Gather Together Designer series paper for the second layer on the Country Home card. The Good Man card uses a piece of Purple Posy cardstock for the second layer.
The next step is the 1 1/2″ x 4″ layer of Designer Series Paper that runs through the middle of the sketch. Notice that I moved this layer up a little rather than having it directly in the middle of the card.
The fourth layer is a piece of Designer Series paper that is cut to 3 1/2″x 4 3/4″. On the Country Home card, the Wood Grain DSP (in the Gather Together DSP set) is layered onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock cut to 3 3/8″ x 4 7/8″.
Finishing the cards:
Country Home card: I stamped the Milk Bucket and fall centerpiece from the Country Home set with Black Momento ink and colored the image with Stampin’ Up! Blends markers. I fussy cut the image out and added it to the center of the card with dimensionals.
Good Man Card: Cut a 3″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. Stamp the image from the Good Man stamp set with Black Momento Ink. Color with Stampin’ Up! Markers and Blends. This piece is layered onto a 3 1/8″ x 4 3/8″ piece of Terracotta Tile cardstock to help the image pop!
The last step is the Embellishments! For the Country Home card I used 2 silver pearls on the bottom right corner of the main piece and two more on the top left above the image. And for the Good Man Card I used 4 of the Gold Designer Elements in the Catalog.
