I discovered 2 Sketches 4 You a couple of weeks ago and I’m hooked! Here’s my take on this sketch:

More fun than a barrel of monkeys!

More fun than a barrel of monkeys!

As a former CTMH consultant, 3/4 of my product at home is all CTMH… this card is no different! The stamps are by CTMH, Chipboard from CTMH, the embossing powder is Crystal Blue by CTMH, the cardstocks are Cocoa, Crystal Blue, Barn Red and Taffy by CTMH. The patterned paper is by Love, Elsie. As for embellies, I love the little Bitty Brads by CTMH; ribbon is from the Dollar Spot at Target and I’ve used a button with Waxy Flax. I colored in my monkey with inexpensive colored pencils — which work great until I can afford those Copics!

Weekend Card Sketch #3 (a little late – sorry)


OK, this sketch has a little “positive-negative” thing going on. I actually heat embossed using red and white embossing powder and Versamark, by trimming 2 half-pieces, matching them up to make a square, stamping in Versamark, separating them and embossing in their respective colors, and then putting them back together again. The stamp set is Homespun Christmas from CTMH and the papers are Evensong and Tulip CS.
