Hi everyone, Shari here…I’ve got more sneaks to share with you plus some fun sketches to play with. This week I’ll be working with one sketch per day, using NEW stamps from our daily sneak previews plus introduce some digital ideas for your cardmaking.
Let’s take a quick peek at Sneak #6…yummy!
Today’s sketch is a square card with rounded corners. The star represents a shape (any shape) and a strip for a message, ribbon or lace. You can interpret the sketches loosely, add to them as you desire.
To see all four sketches for the week, just click HERE to download the PDF.
Here’s a couple cards I made using today’s Sketch and the sneak stamps. If you notice, I played with the sketch a bit so my cocoa mug is on the right because it just looked better to me. Use the sketches as a base for your cards and pages, refit the elements as you need to suit your stamps and accessories.
And a close-up of the window detail…
