Kazan used the Wally and sentiment on her CardWe are so excited about welcoming Sherry on board as our Guest Designer in the very near future! Sherry won Card of the Week with Laura's sketch last week and you all will have an opportunity to see Sherry's take on a sketch using a sponsor's product soon so stay turned. This week we bring you the first Bonus Sketch from our new team members. As designers on 2 Sketches 4 you, the ladies will design their own sketch and create a card based on that sketch. They will use the Sponsor of the Week's product for their own creations so you will have an opportunity to see cool cardmaking products used on two different sketches! The Bonus Sketch is for your enjoyment and creative inspiration. You are not required to make a card based on the Bonus Sketch to be eligible to win COTW, however we would love to see your card so please upload them in the gallery :)
This week the design team all got to play with the super adorable rubber stamps from Paper Makeup Stamps:
Angie used the darling sentiment God made Rainy Days on her card.
Kelly Marie used the sentiment I sustain myself on her card
On this clever card Regina used the To the World sentiment stamp
Stacey used the darling little Cottage stamp on her card
Bonus Sketch & Card
For her interpretation of the Bonus Sketch Courtney used the Teddy Fairy stamp
Courtney Baker designed this week's Bonus Sketch and Card. I love how strikingly simple this sketch is with the large solid panel across the middle. I will give this one a try for sure :) Courtney is a very talented card maker and carries her own line of stamps under the label Practicing Creativity Designs. Her blog, Practicing Creativity, is filled with a ton of creative ideas and video tutorials - I am sure you will enjoy her work and bubbling personality as much as we do! Thanks Ms. Court :)
