TESC102 Cherry Hill Owls

February 26th, 2010

Happy Friday!  Time for another fun sketch from Taylor.  This one is really easy and super versatile so I’m really looking forward to what everyone on the sketch crew has come up with.  When you want to play with a sketch how do you proceed?  With a stamp set or a main image or with colors or papers?  This time my card took a little different turn from my original thought (which is nothing new for me – LOL!)  When I first saw the sketch I could just picture another card for the Dragonfly Card Drive.  Then I got in my stamp room and started to envison Tena from Bakery Business baking up a batch of birthday wishes (in fact I still want to make that card.)  Then I remembered how I’ve been wanting to play more with the TE A la Carte images Animals in Love.  I looked through them and decided the owls would be perfect for this sketch!



Next I rummaged through patterned papers and Key Ingredients and decided this would be a great time to break out the pack of October Afternoon Cherry Hill I’ve been wanting to play with. You know I love to use pops of black in my cards and at the CHA SuperShow one of my favorite samples was a card created by Karen Giron featuring these owls in black rather than the brown I would have always imagined.  Ever since I saw that card I’ve wanted to stamp these cute owls in a black tree.  The image was stamped in Brilliance Black and heat embossed with clear eP.  It was then colored with a combo of Copics and Spica  Glitter pens – it’s really shimmery in person.  Card base is SU Kiwi Kiss as is the ribbon.  I added some red rain dots and black stickles.  Sentiment is retired SU.  Line of hearts is from Animal Love Sentiments.


Now let’s check out what the rest of the Sketch Crew has created this week:

  • Melissa Sauls

  • Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a fantastic weekend.  Make time to stamp!

      Cute! Anytime you want to write out how you do the “process” of designing a card, I’d love it! (Need all the help I can!) LOL!

    7. Melissa Sauls Says:

      I just LOVE this Jami!!! Those owls are just adorable! Isn’t it funny how we go through using so many different sets before we finally settle on something else? LOL!! I was the same way with my card. I think I went through ALL my TE sets though, LOL!! I finally decided on just cutting out already printed butterflies, LOL. AFter I decided on that, I was able to choose the set to go with! Have a great weekend girl!
