Kazan's Sketch #24

My sweet and talented friend Kay Sibley wrote in this post that she was not happy with how one of her cards turned out and asked "do you ever have cards like that?". Well....I sure have. My take on Kazan's Sketch #24 over at 2 Sketches 4 You is one of those cards. And so is the card I will post tomorrow. Kazan's sketch is wonderful and so are the Jillibean Soup papers. I just wish I could say the same about my card. Masculine cards are not the easiest ones, and I had a hard time with this one. I made this card for my uncle who celebrated his birthday yesterday. It was a very last minute project and I didn't have much inspiration or time to make a new one, and I guess it shows.....



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper, journaling sprout: Jillibean Soup Tools: Sizzix Big Shot, Sizzix Stars die, Fiskars Upper Crest border punch, Crop-a-Dile Rub-ons: Melissa Frances Ink: VersaColor Pinecone Other: eyelets, twine

Did you already check out the post on the 2 Sketches 4 You Summer DT call? You should really give it a try. It is an awesome experience to be part of the 2 Sketches 4 You DT. Kazan and Laura are amazingly talented, and the way they run their 2 Sketches 4 You business is very professional. So....why wait....GO FOR IT!

Tomorrow Fleur, Sanne and I are going to see the Dutch girl band KUS. We went to see them before, and the girls really enjoyed themselves. I am sure they will do so tomorrow too.

Enjoy your weekend!

Nou... het zal wel aan mij liggen dan maar ik vind hem juist weer mooi. Vooral omdat het een "mannenkaart" is, een rustige kaart is ook wel eens mooi. En leuke details zoals dat touwtje erdoorheen, heel apart.
Liefs,
Marga

I don't see anything that is not nice on this card Ingrid! I think the sketch is simple and perfect and so does your card.
But ditto on the feeling that there are cards that you feel that don't quite fit, so as my card for tomorrow! Hahaha.

Snap niet wat je bedoeld Ingrid ik vind je kaart prachtig maar je gevoel herken ik wel heb het ook vaker bij m'n kaarten dat ik denk na ja en anderen vinden ze dan wel mooi of zijn ze niet eerlijk???? Heel veel plezier met de meiden bij KUS en ben benieuwd naar je andere (niet) mooie kaart.
Enne ik heb een gokje gewaagd.

I know what you mean, because I have those days too when I look at some fo my carsd and think "I could've done better here"
But I cannot say the same for your card - I love this one. It is perfect and the masculine colours are so up my alley

Hoi Ingrid,

Dat heb ik nou ook altijd bij mannenkaarten... dan denk ik dat het saai/niet af is, maar het is gewoon goed genoeg! Want als je er nog meer bij doet, (bij mij worden dat meestal bloemen) dan wordt het weer een vrouwenkaart of te druk...

Soms ben je gewoon klaar met een kaart, ik vind hem erg mooi in ieder geval!

This is totally awesome! Love it!

Heidi Van Laar said...

I laughed when I read your post because there are so many cards that I have created that I feel the same way about! We are our own worst critics you know.
Before I even read your post I thought "Wow, what a lively and fabulous masculine card!" I really love it Ingrid!

Leontine said...

Ik ben het met Marga eens, ik vind hem ook gaaf. Maar ja, simpel is wat ik mooi vind. En het idee van de eyelets vind ik ook super. Ik heb er nog zoveel liggen en ik weet niet wat ik ermee moet. Je hebt me zomaar een idee gegeten voor de Card Patterns kaart, hahaha.
Liefs,
Leontine

Kay Sibley said...

Oh girlfriend! Isn't it nice to know we are in good company together! :o) You inspire me with EVERY thing you make! And, I truly mean that! I agree that masculine cards are harder to create. I LOVE what you did with the jute (twine). What a great idea to thread it through those eyelets!! He will be thrilled to get this card!! ♥♥ Kay
