One sketch - three ways

Hi everyone!  This is my second post of the day, using OWH's latest sketch Sketch 154.  Thanks to Marlene for taking over the sketch duties from Julie!  I challenged myself to make three cards using the sketch (which I love) with different techniques.
Card #1 - a masculine card
Supplies: OWH Hero Arts Right At Home sentiment, Ali Edwards clock stamp, Graphic 45 paper:
Card #2: Rotate the sketch!
I used papers from the November Simon Says Stamp card kit with an Ali Edwards stamp sentiment.  I embossed the sentiment in white, then used Rusty Hinge distress ink over it:

Card #3: Stickers!
 I've still got Mrs Grossman stickers from about ten years ago that I recently found.  I used them to make a border of Easter eggs.  The digistamp sentiment is a freebie from Netty's Cards: Easter Hugs.  The paper is from Basic Grey's 6x6 pad - Indie Bloom.


I cranked out these cards in just a few hours.  Using a card kit or paper stack makes it quick because I don't spend a lot of time searching for matching papers.

Cat in a box anyone?
 
 And to think I bought her a fluffy cat pillow to sleep in!  Stupid human!

Take care and Happy Sunday to all you crafty gals....

  1. I love your cards and your cat in the box looks quite comfy. I got the dog a nice pillow for in front of the fireplace. He still prefers the hard floor. I think they do it on purpose!

  4. Great cards for this sketch. You picked all nice interesting papers for each card. Nice idea to flip the sketch. I am cat sitting for my daughter this week and I find this cat to be so much fun to watch. Yours looks very comfortable.

  7. Love your cards. The argyle was my fave. Actually the cat pic was my fave. I just gave up and put a box for my cat right on my work table.

  11. Erika, I like how well you used those pesky stickers that hang around year after year! Those colorful eggs in a row are perfect. Our cat does not have a special kitty bed as she is happy sleeping on couches in every room during the day and in our bed at night :)

  12. Hi Erika! These are beautiful; I'm especially drawn to the masculine argyle card. Wish I'd thought of the HA clock set for the focal point; perfect idea! Think I'll go up and make another card for #154. Good job!
