My Favorite Things–Wednesday Sketch #361!!

Well hello!!


I hope all of my American friends enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving holiday!  Our kids were here until Thursday, and we spent the rest of the weekend enjoying Santa Barbara with friends!  It was super fun!!  I’m popping in today to share a card inspired by this week’s My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge!  Here’s the sketch:


And here’s my interpretation of the sketch!


Isn’t it so fun?!!  I know you all know how much I love Buffalo Plaid.  Buffalo Plaid ALL the things!!  When Torico used the Triple Stripe Background to create this plaid on THIS card, I knew I had to figure out a way to incorporate it into my own project!!  I stamped the background onto a Poppy Card Stock card base, first vertically and then horizontally, and then used a ruler and a white gel pen to place white lines between each set of triple lines.  I trimmed an A2 panel of Smooth White Card Stock and die cut the bottom edge using the Stitched Scallop Basic Edges Die-Namics.  I die cut the Joy Die-Namic from the center of the white panel, and removed the die cut.  I adhered the white panel to the card base using foam squares, and filled the inside of the word die cut letters.  I stamped the sentiment (with a bit of stamp surgery on two different sentiments – one from the Essential Sentiments Stamp Set, and one from the More Essential Sentiments) onto some Black Licorice Card Stock using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, and then heat embossed it using White Embossing Powder.  I used the fishtail flag die from the Blueprints 27 Die-Namics to die cut the sentiment, and adhered it to the white panel using foam squares.  Lastly, I embellished the white panel with some black and red enamel dots from my stash.  One last holiday card for my stash!!  I’ve listed and linked all of the products that I used below.

That’s it for me today, friends!  I’m busting my booty to get caught up on some deadlines before a friend comes to visit this weekend!  Thanks so much for stopping by today!  It means so much to me when you do!

What a wonderful card! Brightened my morning just looking at it and reading the greeting. Love the plaid, also.

Hey, sweetheart. I was looking specifically for a Joy "to the world" stamp. I don't know if one exists out there, but I don't have it. And I NEVER would have had the patience to figure this out. Thank you so much. This is such a beautiful card. xoxo

I ACTUALLY can't thank you enough for this card. I've made about a dozen now. They're just beautiful in all colors. So easy, but just beautiful. Yes, I, too, cut up two stamp sets. Oh the crime!
