OWH Sketch BlogHop...


Welcome to the Operation Write Home Sketch Bloghop.

The first card I have to share features HAMBO Stamps: Party Chicks #2701.  I used K&Co Americana Paper stack and solid white and red cardstock.  Ribbon is by Pure Color Essentials.  I added a star brad to the ballon which is cut out and popped up with a dimensional.  The nest has moss adhered with Crystal Effects.  PrismaColor pencils were used to color the image and nestabilites die for the circles. This card uses SKETCH#52.


The next card features an SU! image also colored with PrimsaColor pencils.  Same papers with twine and a silver star charm. This card uses SKETCH#15.


Lastly, is a simple sentiment I received from a friend.  Same papers.  This card uses SKETCH #18 turned upright.


Thanks for stopping by.

Have a wonderful weekend.

LOVE that you used the same paper collection for all 3 cards. The soldier sentiment grabs my heart and the sweet scalloped border on the second reminds me of bunting. TFS and supporting OWH.

What great texture the moss brings to the card. Gotta try that! I really like the soldier card. I'm a big fan of plaids, checks and polka dots. Thanks for your participation in the hop and support of the troops.

It was fun to see the same papers used in different cards. I love the bright birds on the top card. Thanks for supporting OWH.

Valerie said...

gorgeous cards... all of them! Looks like a lot of work went into the first one. Like the nest affect and the scalloped piece on the car with the transparent star ribbon. The second card I really like the image. and the papers you used. The rope & star charm are a nice touch. Card 3 is so elegant! I LOVE the sentiment with the 3 different squares of patterned paper. Nice job!
