Center Stage Spotlight DT Alumni Sketch Blog Hop

Welcome to another fantastic Sketch Blog Hop of the Stamp TV Center Stage Spotlight Design Team Alumni!!! (that's a mouthful) We've been having a blast with these blog hops and we sure hope you're having as much fun hopping with us.  It's been great reading your comments and hearing what you like about our cards.  Thanks to all of you who have left comments and sent emails.  It's appreciated.

If you've come from the very talented Carolina Buchting's blog, you're in the right place.  If not, you're invited to take the hop from the beginning and enjoy each and every fabulous creation.


For this challenge we are using a sketch first showcased by our own Deb Felts in a past hop.  Deb really created a gorgeous card using this sketch and you can see it here.  I hope you'll try this sketch for yourself and post it on your blog or over at Stamp TV (where the memberships are free).


Here is Deb's fabulous sketch


Now, this may look like a simple sketch - and it isn't difficult, but my creative mind decided to take a vacation the day I was working on this sketch and I made several stabs at it and wasn't pleased with any of them.  (I didn't toss them out - who knows what they'll turn into), but time was getting short and I finally decided to work with some bright colors and make a birthday card.


CS:  GKD PL Red Hot, Wild Dandelion and White.
Stamps:  "Lean on Me" and Showtime Stamp Kit "Picture It" (sentiment)

I decided to try a second time and this is my second card using Deb's great sketch:


CS, GKD PL Cranberry Tart, Ivory and Fresh Asparagus.
Stamps:  "Pretty as a Peacock" by Asela Hopkins and "The Magic of Christmas" by Rupa Shevde.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Now head on over to the very talented Deb Felts (creator of the sketch) and check out her gorgeous card from her own inspiration!

Have a great weekend!
