May Card Sketch

Hi paper crafters!! Today I am sharing the May Card Sketch I created for cards and some examples by the craft girls.

May Card Sketch by Pam Callaghan

First up is Kathy, who is sharing how she used this sketch as is.

"Hello! Kathy here to share the greeting I created with the Date Night and Twirly Girly collections and this month's card sketch. This is the third sketch of Pam's that I've worked with and I must say she makes it so easy to create gorgeous cards just by following them as is.

Can you tell which papers and accents are from which collection? If I hadn't made the card myself, I wouldn't be able to tell...everything works together seamlessly."
Our next craft girl, Leigh shows us how she tweaked the sketch a bit for her card.


"I have a card to share today that I made using this month's card sketch & the wonderful  Twirly Girly & Date Night collections.

I decided to tweak the sketch by changing up the bottom edge of the banner and by having the banner as a layer over all of the patterned paper strips.

Here's my card:

Supplies: Twirly Girly Paper (TG140S05; TG140S06, TG140S08, TG140S11, TG140S12) ; Twirly Girly Alpha Stickers (TG14EB01) Twirly Girly Mini Sticker Tags (TG14EB04); Date Night Clear Stamps (DN14ST01)

I cut some strips of patterned paper for my background and adhered them to a 4.25x5.5 panel of solid pink patterned paper.
Then, I stitched these in place with some zigzag stitching.
I diecut my cardstock panel and added some letter stickers and a trimmed sentiment sticker.
I stamped the flowers & leaves from the Date Night stamp set onto the same solid pink patterned paper and cut them out by hand.
I stamped the leaves in a lighter grey onto my cardstock diecut and then adhered the stamped flowers & leaves in place.

Tip: Create some dimension with your stamps by stamping some of them on the background and fussy cutting others."

Last but not least, Savannah is sharing her version of the sketch where she changes the design.

"Hello, friends:)
Savannah O'Gwynn here today! I'm joining in the fun with the Chickaniddy sketch challenge.  

If you follow me-- then you know that my favorite thing to do for "sketch challenges" is to CHANGE IT! And that's what I've done for my card today. I think I followed the sketch about 50%!! Here's a photo of how I changed the sketch.

I really love this card! And I LOVE that silver embossing as the "stamp" on the postcard paper! I also love all the stickers and embellishments with the stitched banners! LOVE x10000!
