What I did with my September Sketch

As promised here I am to share what I created with my September Sketch which you can find here, along with all the details on how you can win some fab prizes too.

Before I share my layout and card I just wanted to wish all of the Fathers out there (including the honorary ones), a Happy Fathers Day.  I want to send a special message of best wishes and love to my Uncle Neville (who has been a wonderful part of our lives since my Fathers passing in 1999) and my brother, Lane (who is a fantastic Father to his two boys).

Now onto my layout and card, both using my sketch signature colour this month “Red”.

The photograph on this layout was taken a couple of days before Noah turned three and was scratched at Daycare by another little boy.  I do have more to say about this, however I don’t think it is either appropriate or necessary as the past is the past.

As always I have stitched the buttons on, misted through a mask (London Blue), misted randomly on the background (Turquoise) and added some of my signature partial stamping.  The secret to getting this stamping to look natural is to get rid of the stamp block (yes, just use the stamp in your hand not mounted to anything), lightly rub a little of the ink in random spots on the stamp (not all over or patting either) and stamp small sections at a time here and there.

Supplies used:
Patterned paper – Crate Paper Little Boy Blue
Mask – Crafters Workshop (TCW227)
Mist – Dylusions (London Blue), Perfect Pearls (Turquoise)
Ink – Versacolor (Pinecone), Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Salty Ocean)
Stamp – Darkroom Door (Dots Background), Colop (Date)
Pen – Tim Holtz Distress Marker (Faded Jeans)
Ribbons – Vandoros
Twine – unknown
Buttons – Basic Grey
Thread – DMC
Lettering – American Crafts Thickers for Crate Paper Little Boy Blue (red), Jillbean Soup (yellow)

I enjoy creating cards, however I don’t seem to do it as much as I should.  I don’t always remember to give cards either, as life seems to pass me by at a flying pace most of the time.  This card uses some of my favourite products and went together very quickly and easily.

I have used Rock Candy Distress Stickles on the tips of the flower petals to give some shimmer and shine without changing the beautiful vibrant red colour.

Supplies used:
Patterned paper – Graphic 45 Kraft Reflections, My Minds Eye Lost & Found 6×6 Sunshine paper pad
Cardstock – Bazzill (French Vanilla)
Dies – Spellbinders (Ovals, Scalloped Ovals)
Bling – Kaiser (swirls), Me & My Big Ideas (dots)
Word sticker – Authentique
Glitter – Tim Holtz Distress Stickles (Rock Candy)
Flowers – Kaiser
Ink – Versacolor (Pinecone)
Lace – Teresa Collins
Trim – Green Tara
