Twisted Sketches Card #77

This week I had intended to make a very obvious autumn card. The plan called for a word like "autumn" or "blessing" or some other word that means it's my favorite time of year.  I gathered supplies and took a right turn somewhere along the process.  Although the card was not what I had planned, I am pleased with the way it came out as an any season card!

Check out this week's Twisted Sketches card sketch can be found here!  The twist is "plain"   I thought of a play on words and was going to get clever with a (air)plane or a plane used in woodworking but cleverness beyond the thought was beyond me this week.  So I stuck to "plain".  

I used Hero Arts layering paper in Latte for the card base.  I spritzed it with some Perfect Pearls  in Perfect Gold and water to give it a little simmer.  I tore a piece of handmade paper for the strip.  The sentiment is a Making Memories de-fined clear stickers.   I mounted the sticker on a scrap piece of velum envelope. . . the gummed part!  I added a bit of water to activate the stickiness and glued it to the hand made paper and ta da! no telltale glue under the velum!  The twine is from Ace Hardware and the "A" is a brad from my stash!

Hope my card has provided a bit of inspiration!  For more inspiration be sure to check out the Twisted Sketches blog and I hope you play along too!  If you do, be sure to link up your card to the Twisted Sketches blog!

Twisted Sketches Card #75

Wow! Where does time go?   It seems like it just goes by faster and faster! So after being sick for a week and then a week long trip to get my son off to college I am BACK!!!  (I will post my trip soon!  for now I will just say it was AWESOME!)

On to the important stuff of the day. . . Twisted Sketch Card 75!!!  If you haven't already stopped by Twisted Sketches to see the sketch, go take a look, I will wait! lol   The twist this week is "ink".

Here's my card. . .

I used some Bazzill cardstock for the card base and the piece the sentiment is stamped on, the floral background paper is from my scrap pile,  the brads are from my stash.  I used the hello stamp from Hero Arts "Dictionary Greeting" set and Stazon Ultramarine ink.  I lightly inked the edges of both the sentiment and background paper.  The flower "ribbon" is "half the edge" Bazzill paper strip.

Stop back soon as I have a couple more cards to add using this week's sketch. . . they are mostly finished I just need to add a couple finishing touches but first I need to get ready for the grandkids they will be here soon!  And I am VERY excited to see them!  Guess I am excited to see my son-in-law too and then later today or tomorrow my daughter!

Have a fabulous and safe weekend!
