Card Sketch #9

Hello everyone!
Welcome to Sketches: Creatively Yours!
Today we have a new Card Sketch for you from Ann, our Senior Designer.
The sketch boasts space for blocks of patterned paper with a central embellie- a graceful oval shape is suggested.

As you will see, our Design Team had many different interpretations and came up with some beautiful cards using this Sketch. Let's have a look!

Card Sketch #9 created by
 S:CY Senior Designer Ann Seleshanko 
First, we have the pleasure of sharing an interpretation of this card sketch from our November Guest Designer, Carla Robinson.

"Holiday Greetings" card created by
S: CY November Guest Designer,
Carla Robinson

 [Notes: Carla told me that she received the darling snowman
 image that she used on her card from a stamped image swap. She added that "t
he paper is Bo Bunny 'Winter Joy.'  I inked all the papers with Pinecone  

(brown) ink. Sentiment is by Stampin' Up."]

Design Team Member Lindy Rabenstine
"Thankful for You" card created by
 S: CY Card Crew
 Design Team Member Michelle Hodges
[Notes: For this festive Thanksgiving card, Michelle told me that she used the colourful Bella Blvd. "One Fall Day" collection. She said: "I fussy cut the pumpkin and leaf. I added some black and blue bling to the flowers and a orange bling to the title strip. Very fun sketch!!"]
"It's Been Forever" card created by
 S: CY Design Team Member Renee Hagler
[Notes: Renee used Tinkering Ink patterned paper, a digital stamp by Mo's Digital pencil, markers by Copic, cardstock by Recollections and Prism, and a rubber stamp by Michael's for her card creation.]

"Merry & Bright" Christmas Card created by
 S: CY Senior Designer
Ann Seleshanko 

[Notes: Ann used Bazill cardstock, Imaginisce paper, a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp, her Copic markers, Baker's twine and Tim Holtz Distress ink to create this card.]
"Happy Birthday" card created by
S: CY Team Leader Ali MacDonald
 [Notes: I used the "Curio" collection by BasicGrey for this card. The card's base is Close To My Heart cardstock in "Terracotta." The ink used on CS and pp edges is CTMH's "Chocolate" and the greeting is stamped in CTMH's "Desert Sand."]
