2 Sketches 4 You ~ Week of 1/26/09

This is the last week for the current design team for 2 Sketches 4 You ~ soon there will be a new one. Rae got to do the bonus sketch and it was very cool! She consistently posted comments to everyone's cards all during her term on the design team. I'm going to miss her! I'll start off with showing you my card for her sketch!

I used the Making Memories Sabrina papers. I had seen someone else use them in a sketch and when I saw them at Michael's I had to have them (with a 50% off coupon they were even sweeter!). The stamp in the middle is a Teresa Collins stamp that I got at Scrapbook.com. The little cupid is a quickutz cookie cutter. The black rhinestones are Kaiser. There is a black mesh flower underneath the primas. Scrapperlicious.blogspot has some tips about mesh and I tried it on a card last weekend (see the post underneath this one) and it turned out very cool!

Here is Rae's Sketch!

It was Laura's turn to do the regular sketch and I chose to use Making Memories Sabrina again! I had gotten the cute little journaling cards that went with it and this one was shaped round so it worked very well for the sketch. The B and mine are technique tuesday stamps. The hat pin is also Making Memories but from the valentine paper. I've been wanting to try putting one in a card for awhile. Don't know if it is exactly how it is supposed to be! The heart is cut with the sizzix tipsy heart die and it is on pop dots so it stands out a bit. And here is Laura's Sketch 18:

Hopefully I will have more time to create this week, so stop by again!

Beautiful cards, as usual! The colors for Rae's sketch are very striking!

I've never known what to do with hat pins but I've always thought they were cool -- now I have inspiration to try it out!

Fabulous cards!
