CP Sketch # 1, and ShortCuts Card

Today the first sketch over at the new card sketch blog Card Patterns is posted, so I can share my first DT card. You can find sketch # 1 and the cards by the DT here. I hope you will play along with us. If you do, you have a chance to become our guest designer for sketch # 3. So....grab your scrap goodies, create a card and leave a link to your card here.

Here is my card based on the sketch.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: October Afternoon Rub-ons: Melissa Frances Buttons: Rusty Pickle Tools: Sizzix Big Shot, Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels One, EK Success Retro Flower Punch Large and Small Ink: VersaColor Pinecone Other: cord

I also made another ShortCuts card. This card is for my grandma to thank her for a gift she gave me. I love square cards, so I used a clear full sheet (8.5x11") to make a 4.5x4.5" card.

Supplies: ShortCuts Clear Full Sheet Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: Making Memories Paperie Greenhouse Tools: Martha Stewart Scalloped Dot Edge Punch, EK Success Retro Flower Large Punch, QuicKutz Alphabet Studio Skinni Mini, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Sizzix Big Shot Buttons: Rusty Pickle Ink: VersaColor Pinecone Other: twine

I also made myself a new banner. I was sick today, and didn't feel like doing anything or going anywhere. Eric ran the errands, so I could stay home. I played with one of my digital kits, and came up with this banner.

Enjoy your weekend!
