OWH Sunday Sketch

After Stamp-a-faire on Saturday I didn't think I'd have any creativity left. But I was inspired by the DIY embellishment challenge and used some of my homemade washi tape to to make a card for this week's Sunday Sketch

 I used my Adorning Accents edgelits to cut the wavy edge..  I originally had the wavy layer the polka dots, but then I saw my stash of homemade washi and had used the same paper to make a run of tape so I swapped a solid wavy layer for the dots and added the dotted washi to the edge.  I used scarlet jewel bitty dot satin ribbon threaded through scarlet jewel vintage buttons to finished the left side.

I stamped BB:Text Style about half way up the card base.  For the focal layer I die cut 2 of the Apothecary Accents layers, one in the dotted paper and one solid.  I stamped the companion stamp on the solid layer.  There is a sentiment in the middle that did not go with my card so I created the Happy Birthday banner using Itty Bitty Banner dies and stamps and layered it over the other die cuts.

Thanks for stopping!!


  1. I love the colors you used on your card...very pretty! You've been busy making beautiful things and blogging I see...wonderful work!

  2. This is beautiful, Maureen! Great use of that edge die - I have the same one and haven't even used it yet, lol! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

  3. Great interpretation of the sketch. I love the color choices. You must have a fancy die cutter. I have to admire anyone who can get there pieces to adhere straight. I'm usually a little crooked (so sometimes I purposely put things on an angle)

  4. Maureen, Wonderful card. Love that tape and also those edgelits. The buttons are a terrific addition.

  5. Uber the colors and details!
