Okieladybug's sketches

Okieladybug is doing a weekly card sketch on the cricut MB if anyone is interested in getting some inspiration &/or ideas, click HERE to see the thread.

Here is a few that I have started from her sketches, I noted down all the sketches from the first week Jan 4th up until recently, so I have a few to catch up on...

Jan 4th

Okie's sketch



My cards



I just used white CS with lavendar handmade paper for the bg, lace ribbon stuck on the sides of the PP, a tag which was a rectangle cut from George Cricut cart & I put a hole in the top for the ribbon, a purple flower on the tag & finished it off with a couple of purple mini brads & a Fiskars Thank you stamp.

***********************************************************************************




I used tan CS & a cool stripy pp for the bg, cut out the ice-cream from Doodlecharms cart & used a real ice-cream stick cut in half & attached the ice-cream heads to them, used a funky border piece I had in my stash, have no idea where I got it from, I think I have had it forever, I also cut COOL from Mini Monograms cricut cart & used a See-D's stamp for Have a Happy Birthday.

I love this one, I think its all the flowers, they are soooo pretty!! I used a light grey CS with a Rebekka Erickson PP - Jason & another PP that I have lots of as I love it, but it doesnt have a company name on it, anyway I attached lace ribbon to it, stuck all the flowers on it & buttons, cut out the sqaure tag with Mini Monograms Cricut cart, used a rub on for Cherish & finished it off with a couple of pretty little hot pink pearls.

*************************************************************************************



I used blue CS with a couple of PP's that I alternated for this sketch, stuck it onto a light green CS for a border, stuck the wavy border on it, cut out a party hat from Doodlecharms Cricut cart added some KindyGlitz for decoration & used a See D's stamp for the sentiment, placed on the light green & blue CS.

I made this card for our son's birthday coming up in a few days, his football team is yellow & green, hence the colour scheme I have chosen. I used Green CS with a kids grass PP, green corrugated CS, coloured the stamped image (that I received in a card swap) with watercoloured pencils & a water blender cut a H & a B from Mini Monograms Cricut Cart stamped the rest of the sentiment & finished it off with some yellow marble embellies & pierced holes around 2 sides of the card.

I saw this sketch & though of a baby card straight away, I have no idea why, but I went with it... firstly I turned the sketch on it's side & used White CS, Cuttlebug embossed BG, attached pink spotty PP, some flowers with KindyGlitz & cut the baby bottle from New Arrivals Cricut Cart. I finished it with a Deep pink pearl & stamped Just arrived.

My sister got this cute stamp set from Stampin' Up, so I had to have a play

I was so busy having fun playing with the stamps that I looked at it & thought there is something missing... then I realised I didn't have any cricut on it, so I puzzled for a minute & thought oh an X, thats what's missing ...der.... so I cut one from Mini Monograms. I used Bazzill Basics CS, I made the BG paper by stamping on the orange paper, placed each stamp on it's on mat, coloured them in with watercolour pencils & a water blender & stuck the X on to mark the spot.




Well this card actually covers 3 different challenges I was doing, firstly Okies second sketch from Mar 11, Day 17 from 365 Cards & Splitcoaststampers LSC211.

Okies sketch you can see above, 365 cards was Buttons & Bows - use 3 buttons & 3 bows, no more, no less & LSC211 was to make a card with a bug on it, using no more than 4 layers & no patterned paper.

So keeping in with Okies sketch, I then used red & black CS, cut a 3 1/2" ladybug from Doodlecharms Cricut Cart, layered some red & black ribbon, attached the bows & buttons, then stamped Happy Birthday on red CS, matting it onto black CS. Oh I stuck so googley eyes on the ladybug for a bit of fun. To finish it off I used black gel pen & dotted around the red border & over the top of the stamp so it stood out more.
(I will repost this card so the other challenges can find it, but had to add it here to all of my Okies cards.)

I used Stampin' Up! PP on a white cs base, attached flowers & buttons, stamped It's your day & finished it off with some rhinestones



For this one I used a white card base with a black CS mat & stamped flourishes on a white CS mat placed some flowers with black flat rhinestones & layered a hot pink one with a black & white one ontop. Placed some hot pink lace ribbon across the bottom & stamped Congratulations on white CS then onto a black CS mat, finished it off with piercing around the edging. I love the black, white & hot pink combo, I think it looks very smart.
