Hi everyone, Diane here! I thought it would be fun to host a week full of cards with multiple themes all created with a single sketch. I enlisted the help of the other creative members to make some cards using the sketch I provided. I hope you'll join in to make a card or two yourself. In my opinion, you can never have too many in your stash...nothing worse than needing a last minute card and no time to make one.
Here is the sketch I provided for the inspiration for all cards that you will see this week. The theme today is Thinking of You / Get Well.
Amy Sorensen used the sketch to create this gorgeous card in soft muted colors to let someone know she is thinking of them with this great quote of words of encouragement.
I like how the key was used as the horizontal strip across the bottom of the card and the large quote in place of the butterfly.
Jennie sent me this great bold and graphic card.
The bright colors paired with black is very striking.
Laura sent me two cards that followed the sketch closely. This first one features some beautiful flowers to cheer someone who has been sick.
This next card from Laura, features butterflies as seen in the sketch.
I love how the butterfly is extending past the edge of the paper.
This next card is from Amy Coose.
Amy mixed some bold prints and used buttons and stars in place of butterflies.
I thought I would throw in a handful of "hello" cards too. They fit in with the general "thinking of you" theme.
This first one is from Laura, and features butterflies in a variety of sizes.
I made the remaining hello cards. On this one, I followed the sketch closely, changing out the butterflies for some sentiments and telephone image.
On this next card, I flipped the sketch and placed the horizontal strip across the top.
Here is another one, where I flipped the orientation and rotated the design elements from horizontal to vertical.
On this last one, I followed the sketch closely using a butterfly and flowers for my embellishments.
I think it is easy to see how versatile a sketch can be. It can be used as is or rotated. Sometimes a sketch will inspire design elemements while straying from the layout of the design. The important thing is to let it inspire you in some way that is uniquely you!
Thank you so much for visiting today. I hope you will come back tomorrow to see how the sketch inspires another theme.
