Welcome to sketch week at Create with Connie and Mary! I have to admit, I was stumped at first. I like stamped images and this sketch seemed to be asking for DSP. I prefer to use stamps…you spend all that money on them…you need to use them! I wanted to figure out how to incorporate them both (stamps and paper). We ride motorcycle with a group of people. And, these people have birthdays…yes, it’s true! Us motorcycle folks are regular people…not the scary people some think we are! I am always needing a good motorcycle birthday card. When I saw the One Wild Ride stamp set in the catalog, it was at the top of my list of things to get! Here’s this week’s creation:
Stamp Set: One wild Ride
Ink: Smoky Slate, Basic Black, Real Red
Paper: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White, Silver Foil, Real Red pattern
Accessories: Layering Circles framelits, Best Badge punch, Sparkle embossing folder
You might be asking how I got the starburst shaped circle framelits. I did not cheat and use the old Starburst framelits…although that did come to mind! I used the Layering Circles. You have to make two cuts…the second one off-set from the first and you get a starburst! Not perfect, but it works! And I’m not using contraband! LOL! I used red as my accent color because that’s what color my husband’s bike is (black/red) and this will be his birthday card in January of 2017! Can’t wait to give it to him! Now you head over to Create with Connie and Mary and try your luck with the sketch!
