Sketch 325 AHSC


I liked this sketch. I liked it so much I made multiple versions!


Exhibit a. I forgot how much this folder shrinks paper vertically.

Exhibit b. I stamped the white piece before embossing it and assembling. Check out the "potting mix" pieces!

Exhibit c. I decided to try stamping a version I had in my head.

To make these cards, I used my basic toolkit plus a variety of materials.

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment below and pin my project before you pop over to the sketch here and share your creations!

Bear Hugs CTMH Australasian Blog Hop

If you arrived here from Dannii, welcome! Read on and hop around for heaps of inspiration.

There's 17 different bits in this stampset that you can mix and match to create heaps of cards and layouts. Here's what I've made!

The doily thin cut provided just enough oomph to this card as an accent behind the bear. The bear was also a pretty easy fussy cut!

Basic Toolkit: (Versamat, Trimmer, Scissors, Ruler, Adhesive Runner, Foam Dots, Stamping Starter Kit), White Card Value Pack, Into the Wild Paper Packet, Sapphire Kraft and White Daisy Cardstocks, LePen, S1907 Bear Hugs - July SoTM and Angel Policy Stampsets, 5" x 6" My Acrylix® Block, New England Ivy and Espresso Exclusive Inks, and Doily Thin Cut. *Retired/discounted/WSL items
