JULY SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY

* * *PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR TODAY’S ‘FETTI FIND POST* * *

. . . . .

Howdy and Happy Monday!  Before I get to the newest SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY, I just wanted to remind everyone that we are just a week away from our next release.  Stay tuned this week for sneak peeks and a chance to win!

It’s July 1st and it’s time for this month’s SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY!  We’re keepin’ it pretty simple again this month and there are a lot of chances for you to make it your own.  Be sure to link up your creations to the link list at the bottom of this post.

I had so many ideas for this sketch!  At first I was going to switch the circle out with a label shape, but then I came across something that was ombre and decided that was the direction that I wanted to take.  I stuck with the circle, like shown on the sketch, and used my Silhouette to cut a variety of different size hearts.  The size of the hearts, as well as the intensity of the aqua increased as they got lower on the circle…

As you can see, there are a few other creative liberties taken with this sketch, but “the bones” are still there.  I really encourage you to let your creativity help you make this your own!  My liberties were a bit accidental, as the circle/heart panel came out a wee bit bigger than I anticipated.  Short on time, and figuring that everything happens for a reason, I just went with it.

I took some pics along the way so that you can see how I created the ombre heart panel.

First, I cut the circle panel with the hearts from my Silhouette and punched out some circles in the 3 colors I used to create the ombre effect.  The punched circles are attached to the reverse side…

TIP: To avoid a gooey glue-y mess, use a little glue around the hearts and then put the circles on top of it.

JulySFYTT1_glue

I’m a glue person, but I understand you may be using a tape runner.  If so, just apply the adhesive to the heart panel instead of the punched circles so that you will avoid any adhesive showing through on the other side.

Here’s the completed reverse side…

This panel is attached to a large white cardstock mat with dimensional adhesive and then added to the card, also with dimensional adhesive.

TIME FOR A (SFYTT) CARD TUESDAY + WINNER ANNOUNCED…

Howdy, friends!

It’s TIME FOR A CARD TUESDAY, but before we get to that I get to announce the winner of the $15 Reverse Confetti gift certificate from this weekend’s blog hop.  Thanks to all that hopped along with us!

Winner

Congratulations, Samantha.  Please email me.

. . . . .

As you know, SKETCH FOR YOU TO TRY (SFYTT) is back!  In December, after several years of hosting SFYTT on my iheart2stamp blog, I retired it.  As the plans for Reverse Confetti  started to fall into place earlier in this year, I realized that I really wanted it to be part of what I do here, too…and I’m glad I did!  On June 1st, SFYTT’s inaugural sketch as part of Reverse Confetti went live and I just LOVE what y’all are doing with it!  It’s a pretty basic sketch and lends itself to just about any style.

RC_SFYTT1

I got out of my comfort zone just a little on this card, by using a black base.  I love how it makes the white and colors POP…

ILY_SFYTT

As you can see, I took a few creative liberties with the sketch on this card, and I invite you to do the same with your creations.

Detail shot…

ILY_SFYTT_detail

For this card, I used the base sentiment from the set, I LIKE YOU.  I had originally thought to add a die cut image in the center of the picture frame and tie in the “&…” sentiment, but decided to keep it sweet, simple and a bit scrappy.  The stamped heart and diagonal stripes on the bright pink panel are also part of this set.
