SFYTT- So Glad We're Friends

These two cards are for Jen's Sketch for You to Try Challenge, each of these cards uses the same sketch and colors but different stamps. For the card above I turned the sketch and used some retired Stampin' Up designer paper along with the stamp sets Trendy Trees and Best Yet. I can't believe I still have some of this paper left, it just goes to show you what a paper hoarder I am, lol.
For this card I used the sketch up right the way Jen has it shown on her blog and used the stamp set Pocket Silhouette along with the Best Yet. Instead of using designer paper as my back ground I embossed the Old Olive card stock piece using my Cuttlebug folder for some texture. It seems very strange not to use ribbon or brads on either of these cards but it just seem to work out that way.


Supplies: Trendy Trees, Pocket Silhouette, Best Yet, Hawaii Papaya DSP, Square punches, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Stamp-a-majig. Colors: Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Really Rust, Certainly Celery, Ruby Red, Whisper White.



Thanks for your visit!

Cool sketch and I like how you were able to incorporate so many of the stamps from each set into one card.

I just found your blog and you have some beautiful cards! In the cards above, which punch did you use for the 6 squares or did you just use a straight edge cutter? They look so exact! Thanks!
