The first sketch is from the My Mind's Eye blog, for their February Sketch Challenge.
I diecut a PTI mat stack 4 die for the top left hand corner, on which I layered a Notched Flower diecut that I stamped with a Funky Florals stamp and heat embossed them with some Zing embossing powder. I repeated these diecut flowers two more times around my photo and topped them with some buttons and twine.
For my title, I used my PTI Counting my Blessings stamp set and coordinating die, which I diecut from some more MME patterned paper. I stamped the sentiment with Scarlet Jewel ink. Under the photo, I stamped a couple of sentiments from PTI's fabulous frames set.
And this next sketch was posted at the Love is in the Details for their recent online crop.
And here's the layout I made for it, using some more My Mind's Eye patterned paper (gold hexagon, grey polka dot) and decorative brads. The cream background patterned paper is Crate Paper.
For my title, I diecut my Headline Alphabet dies out of rustic white cardstock and then stamped them with Headline Alphabet stamps & A Muse Studio Slate ink. I layered them on a Tag Sale #5 diecut. The chipboard arrows are Pink Paislee mistable ones, which I chose to keep white. I backed the largest one with some grey cardstock.
Thanks for looking!
