Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #456

 Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #456

Hello friends! Today at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog, we have another wonderful sketch to share with you. We hope that you can play along with us. I am still working on Valentine's Day cards for my family and to donate as well as to use some patterned paper and other items in my crafty stash as well.

Supplies used:


Card #1

To start this card, I looked through my patterned paper leftovers and found quite a few that I wanted to use. I used a wide sentiment strip die to cut out some papers in a variety of colors. Then I stamped the sentiment from Altenew's Love Letters stamp set in both Glamorous (red) and Warm Breeze (blue) VersaFine Clair ink and heat embossed it with Holographic embossing powder. I then stamped several of the hearts from same stamp set a few times with Catherine Pooler's Pixie Dust ink and heat embossed them again with the Holographic embossing powder. I then second generation stamped the hearts one final time as well. Then I die cut the sentiment using a rectangular die in my stash, splattered some of the Pixie Dust ink mixed with water over the rectangle and used the splatters to heat emboss more Holographic embossing powder. Finally, I die cut a leftover piece of white cardstock that had been sprayed through a stencil with the largest die from Gina K's Master Layout 2 die set.

To assemble the card, I used some washi tape to keep all of the strips of paper together. I added some Instant Dimension foam tape behind the sentiment and placed the sentiment over the sentiment strips. I glued the strips onto the white background panel and then glued the whole thing onto a white A2-sized card base. I finished the card by adding sequins from Catherine Pooler's Soda Springs sequin mix.

Card #2

This card started out with an ink smooshed piece of watercolor paper that I die cut with the largest die of the Master Layout 2 die set. I splattered water across the panel and used it to heat emboss gold embossing powder from Ranger. I stamped the sentiment again, this time heat embossing it in gold embossing powder.  I ran some Perfect Plumeria VersaMagic Chalk ink around the edges of the rectangle and heat embossed again with more Holographic powder. I splattered more of the Pixie Dust ink across the sentiment panel, but did not heat emboss. This time, the strips behind the sentiment were made up of a variety of pink, black, and gold washi tapes in my stash. The sequins came from a Neat and Tangled sequin mix. The panel was glued onto a red A2-sized card base.

Card #3

The background panel started out as patterned paper on this card, but I decided later that I wanted to heat emboss some Cactus Flower embossing powder over it instead. The edges of the sentiment panel were again splattered with Pixie Dust ink mixed with water and heat embossed with Holographic embossing powder again. The strips were again made with washi tape. A white A2-sized card base was used again for this card.

I hope this sketch and my different takes on the sketch may have encouraged you to play along with us this week. Thanks for reading!
