June 2023 Stick it Down Card Sketch Challenge


 There is my take on this months sketch! Love me some pink fresh and that is what card was made from products from Pink Fresh. Stamp, Stencil and Die "Simplest Gesture". Background inked using Pink Fresh layering stencils "Kaleidoscope".  popped layers up to make this card very dimensional. Added some clear gems and a sentiment stripe for the win.

May 2023 Stick It Down Card Sketch Challenge

Welcome to May's Stick it Down Challenge! I love it when cards come together and what's even more fun is when you spend a crafty day creating all kinds of  jelly prints and you find cool ways to use them! 

Here is this months Sketch


 AND here is my take on it!

As stated above the base was already made from a previous jelly print day but I did add even more layers using a flower boarder stencil and a Leaf Stencil. Colors used were TH distress oxides Rustic Wilderness and Tattered Rose. I then used pencil crayons to enhance the shading of those two colors. I cut stitched squares from black, inked green card stock and another previous jelly print of pinks. The silver letters came from left overs in my stash and the flowers were cut from Vellum and the same pink jelly printed background as the squares. I layered the vellum and pink flowers together and added silver jewels from Pink Fresh. I used a stamp from my stash to stamp out Happy Birthday to you.

April 2023 Stick It Down Card Sketch Challenge

 This months sketch allows for the creator to make a really simple and quick card or you can level it up as I did with lots of extra textures!

 Here's the sketch....

And here is my take on it.

I started with a previously jelly print piece, added even more stenciling using Time Holtz Inks (Rusty Hinge regular and Iced Spruced Oxide) added some copper paints through another stencil as well as modeling paste to the card front. (stencils used were Studio light Aviation MR.12 and Ciao Bella Assisi MSO34); Once the stenciling was dries I cut the piece on a diagonal and added black messy stitching around each piece. The old car was stamped and hand cut (a very old TH stamp); the man was stamped and hand cut (TH Inquisitive Stamp CMS432); the circle was cut and embossed using another of TH products. There is a sentiment stamped inside (not shown here) using TH Bold Saying CMS433)

March 2023 Stick it Down Card Sketch Challenge

 Excited for March sketch reveal and my take on it. Took several days to pull together as I knew I wanted "rainbow" but other then that I wasn't sure. I LOVE how it turned out!

Here's the Sketch AND....



Here is my take!

First I started with a stencil from Pink Fresh Studio's called Geo Arch and using the following colors created a wonderful base directly on the card- Distress Oxides in Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Uncharted Mariner, Seedless Perserves.

I then cut out a panel from Pink Fresh Stitched Scallop Rectangle, backed it with 29lb vellum (as I wanted to still see the design behind) and popped it up on foam tape to create a shaker element.

I used dies from Concord & 9th Oh Hey You stamp and dies set; Hero Arts YAY! Birthday Bundle; Woodware Bog Bubble Craft Die and WR Memory Keepers 1" and 5/8" circle punch for the other elements.

With so much color going on in the backgroun I decided to leave some elements as Black and White which I loved in the end.

Stamped a big "HOORAY"  on the inside with some washi tape and also used the same washi to decorate the envelope a tad.
