5 Sketches - Same Paper

I had 5 card sketches that I was working on for four different challenges.  I challenged myself to use the same patterned paper and coordinating cardstock to complete all 5.  I began by choosing  two pieces of patterned paper from the Carol Wilson Fine Arts paper pack.


Then I added coordinating cardstock from my stash.  I added some possible embellishments and tools. I decided to also use round and scalloped punches.

This first card is Raq's sketch #2.  I decided to enter it in the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog - embossing challenge.  I inked my Cuttlebug folder and then embossed the flower.  I love the way the flower came through the ink.

This next card is Raq's sketch #1. 

This is Raq's sketch #3.  The sentiment is cut from Sentimentals and embossed with Swiss Dots.  The shaped frames - cut with the Gypsy using some welding of shapes from George - are embossed with Divine Swirls.  The flowers are punched then Stickles were added to the centers.

This sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

And, finally, Tuesday Takes sketch #14.

So, there you are,  five cards using two sheets of patterned paper and two coordinating cardstock pieces.  When I find papers that I love, I want to use them as many ways as I can.

Hugs and Happy Crafting,
