Wedding Bell Blues

I needed a quick wedding card and I just couldn't believe how quick this one was. You see, I caught a little "bug." NO, I didn't buy a Cuddlebug. I wanted to but was talked out of it by an employee at the stamping store. I have a Sizzix and the attachment and that was all I needed other than the die cuts and folders. Well, the folders were on sale. Need I say more? I bought a few and am having some fun with them. For this card I inked up my brayer and then rolled the ink on my blotter paper. I wanted a very light touch of blue. I tried it with the brayer fully inked and OH MY, it was SO dark! I did have to repeat the light process a few times to get the color I wanted but it's always best to go light and add dark than to just start out dark. I'm sure I'll be able to use the dark piece for another card later on. My card making career isn't over yet! I used Ballet Blue for my color on this card. No ribbons, no bows but I did sponge!!! You know how much I LOVE to sponge. I'm even giving away a sponge in the Blog Candy.

This layout is the SplitCoast sketch challenge this past Wednesday. SC127 I think. I'll have to check because I do need to post it before the next one comes out.

I've found that I'm enjoying the sketches. Once you get an idea in your head of what you want on the card you just cut it to fit the sketch. It works most times!!! I'm usually not one for trying new things but these sketches help me to get a different variety of layouts in my card file!

To make this card without the Cuddlebug folders, just pick a background like the floral one and use the Ballet Blue ink pad and stamp off once and then use the next image for your card. Use good card stock for your stamped off image, you can use this on another card later.

Thank you for checking in!
