Sunday Sketches

Sunday Sketches SS003 Foxy Friends Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

As I sit in my stamping room, occasionally I will see a little red fox running up our driveway.  We have had the fortune of having the entire family play in our backyard.  Sometimes we are awoken in the wee hours of the night by little pups yelping they can make quite a rack. 

Sunday Sketches SS003 Just for You Card using Foxy Friends stamp set & Fox Builder Punch by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com


Today's card was inspired by the hopes that someday one will sit under our pine tree just like the card.  The Foxy Friends Stamp Set &  Fox Builder Punch makes it so easy to create so my critters beyond the fox.   You can create cats, skunks, squirrels, raccoons, pandas, reindeer and the list goes on and on.

I had so much fun creating the first round of Sunday Sketches and even more fun seeing how different the two cards are using the same sketch. 

Click Here to see the other card made using the SS003 card sketch.

While both cards use the same sketch the cards have a totally different look.  You can use the same sketch over and over with different stamps sets, paper and ink colors to create totally different cards.

Sunday Sketches SS002 - Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper

Sunday Sketches is making the second round.  A year ago I started the sketches and decided that it would be fun this year to recreate a new card using the original sketches.  

Sunday Sketches SS002  by Stamp to Die For-horz

This week is SS002 and I choose to use the Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper and coordinating Birthday Friends Framelits Dies.  The dies are designed to cut out some of the images in the designer series paper.  On this card, I cut out the little girl from the paper and also the flag.  The "It's your big day!" sentiment from the Birthday Delivery stamp set was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad and then cut out using the coordinating framelit. 

Sunday Sketches SS002 card sketch template using Birthday Deliavery stamp set & Brithday Friends Framelits by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

The base of the card made using Pacific Point cardstock which is part of the Stampin' Up! Brights Framily.  The Brights are part of the Stampin' Up! core colors and each year they add some amazing In-Colors that are good for 2 entire years of creative fun.

The oval was cut out of Whisper White cardstock using the Layering Ovals Dies and Big Shot.  The little girl was placed on the ovals using Stampin' Dimensionals to give it some great depth. 

The strip of Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper is 1-1/2" x 5-1/2" and adhere to the card front 1/4" from the bottom. 

This is a very quick and easy card also known as clean and simple in the stamping world.  I love simplicity for most of my card making. 

Be sure and check out the original post and see the difference.   Have you created any cards using my Sunday Sketches? It's never too late to give it a try.

Here we go again - Sunday Sketches SS001

Sunday Sketches SS001 Colorful Seasons Stamp Set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2
For the past year, I have done a new card sketch each Sunday and created a hand stamped card using the sketch.  Today I am going to start over and create another card using the original SS001 card sketch.  


Sunday Sketches SS001 card sketch template Colorful Seasons stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com
I really do love how this card turned out.  It was a work in progress.  Usually, I can see a card in my head but not today.  I just started with the Pool Party Cardstock base (4-1/4" x 11") and added the piece  (3-1/4" x 5-1/2") of Whole Lot Of Lovely Designer Series Paper (DSP) to the center of the card base. 

And it just grew from there using the Colorful Seasons Stamp Set and Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and Big Shot.

The branches, flower center and sentiment are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink,  The flowers on the branches are stamped with Tangerine Tango Classic Ink and the single flower on the circle is stamped in Pool Party Classic Ink.  

Be sure and click here to check out the original card I stamped.   See how using the same sketch and changing up the stamp set and colors can make it look totally different.   What do you think?

I am SO in love with this paper I can't even begin to tell you how much.  Most of you know Calypso Coral is my favorite Stampin' Up! color - yes I do have one favorite color and love all the rest of course LOL.   Rich Razzleberry hasn't been top of my list but the combination of Calypso Coral and Rich Razzleberry well who knew.   What a marvelous combination.

Sunday Sketches SS050 - Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies

Today I paired up the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Seasonal Layers Thinlit Dies.  I have always loved Adirondack chairs so when I saw the framelits with an Adirondack chair I just knew it had to be mine. 

SS050 Sunday Sketches card sketch and template Colorful Seasons stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

Adirondack chairs seem to represent peace, tranquility and restfulness.   We all live such busy lives and it really is hard to feel caught up sometimes let alone have extra time just to relax and enjoy. 

 

Sunday Sketches SS050 Colorful Seasons stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

We are on week 50 of the Sunday Sketches so just two more weeks to complete our one year series.  So in a couple of weeks I thought it would be fun to start over again with SS001 sketch and create a new card using the same sketch. 

 

Sunday Sketches SS050

I challenge you to create a card using today's sketch and share it on my Facebook Page.

Remember you can replace squares with circles, make the card horizontal instead of portrait the sketch is just a starting point. 

 

SS050 Sunday Sketches card sketch and template Colorful Seasons stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2

As I mentioned before the pattern paper is from the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper collection. 

For the card base I used Very Vanilla.  The mats are Early Espresso and Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  The Adirondack chair is cut out of Early Espresso cardstock. 

The little tag was created using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and Early Espresso Classic Ink and the coordinating Classic Label Punch.

The ribbon is 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon and the final touch I added were the two little Glitter Enamel Dots in Old Olive.  These have been a huge seller this season and have been on a back order but are back in stock now.

Have a wonderful week and see you back here on Tuesday.

Card Directions:

  1. The card base is a piece of 4 -1/4" x 11" piece of Crumb Cake Cardstock folder in half.

Sunday Sketches SS048 Badges and Banners

Sunday Sketches SS048 Badges and Banners stamp set and Punch by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com

Each Sunday I post a card sketch along with a card I created using the sketch. Sketches often help get my creativity fired up.

 

Sunday Sketches SS048

Sketches are open to interpretation. You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout, using a square where there is a square, or you can change it to a be a circle, or oval or flower etc. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal.

 

Bird Cage - Whole lot of Lovely Paper and Ribbon of Courage Stamp Set by Stampin Up and Support Ribbon Framelits www.stampstodiefor.com 4

Let the cage bird sing is what comes to mind when I saw this stamp. We had a parakeet when we were small.  It would often come and sit on the edge of our cereal bowels or our shoulders and peck at our ears.  That may be the reason I am not so fond of birds. 


Mallard uninvited for Dinner
And don't you know it seems like they are attracted to me.  A few weeks ago we were sitting outside at a restaurant and a mallard duck proceed to join us.  I will admit it wasn't a relaxing meal.  That is my knee and he is sitting at my feet!  We both survived the meal but I wish he would have gone someplace else.  I can easily get off task...

Back to this weeks card...

Sunday Sketches SS046 Bike Rde stamp set and Build a Bike Framelits by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor-horz

Today's card sketch markes 46 weeks of Sunday Sketches.  It is fun to create a card and sketch to share with you each week.  Have you found the sketches helpful to get your creativity going?

Bike Ride Stamp Set and Build a Bike Framelits by Stampin' Up!


The Bike Ride stamp set with it's coordinating framelits was top on my list of have to haves this year,  I "needed it", okay wanted it.  Do you ever try to justify why you need a stamp set?  

You would think after almost 19+ years of stamping I would have everything I "needed" LOL.  But every year Stampin' Up! comes up with more amazing stamp sets with coordinating framelits.  I love when I don't have to fussy cut!

Pick a Pattern Paper and Bike Ride stamp set by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2
I saw on Pinterest a card made with the bike partly cut off and thought it was a neat concept so recreated it on my card.  The bike basket I cut out with one of the framelits from the Build a Bike set using silver foil paper so it almost looks like a real metal basket.

Pick a Pattern Paper by Stampin' Up! www.stampstodiefor.com 2

The patterned paper is from the Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper package.  It has a great variety of designs, color and can be used for some many of your upcoming stamping projects.
