TCM: April Sketch hop!


Hi there!

Today, the designers from The Craft's Meow are joining together for a sketch blog hop event!  (Sketch provided by Nina Brackett.)

If you've arrived on the hop from Jennifer's blog, you're right on track.  If not check out the full link list over at TCM's store blog.


I made my card today using TCM's Fruity for You and Summertime with Fibi and Lilly stamp sets.  

I stamped the glass of lemonade image in black stazon ink on some vellum cardstock.  Then, using my Stampin Up dye based markers, I colored the image on the backside of the vellum, since the ink will smear a bit with the stazon ink.  I did a bit of 'fussy cutting' around the images, adhered them with some EK success liquid glue pen, and finished it off with some diamond stickles on the ice cubes.


The honeydew twine from The Twinery was a great subtle embellishment to the card since it matched the patterned polka paper so well.  The cloud embossing folder is from Stampin Up.  The pitcher and spoon are from NinaB Designs for Spellbinders called Homespun.


Next up on the hop for today is Lin!

Happy Hopping!
Jessica
