Global Design Project 042 - Sketch Challenge

Welcome to another Global Design Project amazing week! I am excited about it being a sketch challenge this week because I know everyone is going to come up with some amazing things. Today I struggled getting a card to happen. I think that I am suffering with - "too much new stuff to play with and i'm overwhelmed" syndrome. I just want to play with all the new stuff all in one card! I just about did with this one today. 

Here is the lovely sketch from Teneale - 

Here is my card and interpretation of the sketch - 

I went very literally with my card and sketch today. I think it is all my little brain could handle. I used my favourite colour combo - even though I started with completely different colours.. lol! I used the new layering Circles, and popped up my smoky slate cardstock on dimensionals.

I stamped the smoky slate with smoky slate with the small flowers found in the Falling Flowers stamp set. They are just so sweet and just what I needed to fill in the blank space.

The heart was cut using the Sweet & Sassy thinlits and I decorated it with one of the flowers from the Flourish Thinlits dies as well as added the trim from that set. I love that trim!

The sentiment is from the Fresh Fruit and I cut that out using the cool new label thinlit found in the popcorn box thinlits! Didn't I warn you that I used just about all I could! lol.

Thanks so much for coming by today - make sure you head over to the Global Design Project to see what the other designers have come up with as well as all the wonderful projects that are added. Hope you get to play along too!

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Special Guest France Martin

Welcome to June and another amazing blog hop with my team - The Crazy Crafters. Today we get to have a special guest - Frenchie Martin!! Right now you are visiting Kylie Bertucci and there is a blog hop list at the end of the page that you can use to hop around each persons blog in my team. You may be starting here or have come from the person previous to me - that is fine! Just use the list to hop around to all the blogs so you don't miss a thing.

We are so excited to have Frenchie with us as a guest. I was so excited to have a photo with her on the Mediterranean Cruise but unfortunately her daughter had a serious fall that required surgery right away and they had to leave!! I was so sad for Frenchie and her family.

I found this great picture of Frenchie though -

Here is her gorgeous card that I got my inspiration from -

Here is my take on her card -

The things that I loved about Frenchies card was the layered border and the gorgeous happy flowers! I replicated that using the framelits instead of a stamp set. The Flourish Thinlit die is so intricate and stunning I love it. I used the Floral Phrases for the sentiment using the decorative label punch. The designer series paper I used was the affectionately Yours specialty paper. It gave me my colour inspiration.

Thank you so much for joining us today for this amazing blog hop we love having you come along and be inspired by our guest and how we interpret her cards. CASING is so much fun - Copy and Selectively Edit. We can all have fun doing this with each others work and inspire each other to make amazing things!
