Stampin' Up! UK Simply Sketched Challenge Week 2

I REALLY REALLY struggled with this sketch! My brain doesn’t copy well with wonky angles, and the angles on the sketch were too much for my little brain to handle. I actually made two cards this week, I might blog the first card I made later in the week. I changed it on Friday when I started writing this post, because I’m not sure if I like it!

I am much happier with this card. I changed the shapes on the sketch from rectangles to circles (and so got rid of the wonky angles!). The Designer Series Paper is from the English Garden Designer Series Paper Pack, and although there are some lovely floral patterns in this pack, I really wanted to keep the patterns simple on this card.

The card base is in Soft Suede, with the card stock circle in Old Olive. I have to admit this is not a usual colour palate of mine, but I am trying to push myself on a Saturday and make something a little out of my comfort zone. All three pieces (the two DSP, and one card stock) are paper pierced to add some extra detail, along with the trio of Candy Dots in Soft Suede

I needed to introduce a horizontal element onto this card (as suggested by the sketch) but didn’t want to cover the circles too much. I have also recently found a love for vellum, I have always liked putting vellum on cards but at the moment I am having to stop myself from putting Vellum on EVERYTHING! The Vellum is stamped with a sentiment from the Garden In Bloom stamp set – which coordinates with the Designer Series Paper – stamped in Early Espresso.

  1. Cute card Hannah, liking the colour combo. Why didn’t i think of circles would have been less strain on the knogging. Lol

  2. Great take on the sketch Hannah. Who said it has to be straight lines? The sketches definitely encourage us to think outside of the box. Lovely card x
