Good morning and welcome to the Lily Bee blog today as we continue our feature on the Dads in our lives. Today we will share with you some cards inspired by our June sketch and hope that you will feel inspired to play along with the challenge. I really like sketches because they take the guesswork out of scrapping and make completing a project so much easier!
Are you ready to see the sketch for this month?
It is a simple sketch which leaves lots of room for interpretation and for you to add your own creative touches. You can add as much or as little detail as you want as you adapt this sketch to your cards. The squares in the sketch can be any shape you would like to use. Feel free to switch things up!
Supplies: Destination (6x6 Tiny Tablet, Label Stickers, Embellishment Bundle, Letter Stickers, Chipboard Stickers), Pinwheel (6x6 Tiny Tablet)
Adrienne shares, "I kept a cluster of embellishments in the middle of the card like the sketch, but used circle elements instead of squares. I also added an extra cluster at the top left to draw the eye across the card and to help balance out the circular elements."
Adrienne's second card is just as fantastic as the first. I really like her color combination for this card perfect for any father:
Supplies: Pinwheel (Lime Rickey, Chipboard Stickers), Sweet Shoppe (Circle & Tag Stickers, Letter Stickers), Destination (Tickets, Port, Embellishment Bundle, Label Stickers, Letter Stickers)
About this month's card sketch Adrienne says, "I really liked Becky's sketch and thought it was perfect for a more "masculine" themed card. I was instantly inspired by the center square and used a cut-out photo frame from the Port patterned paper. I added my embellishments on top of the photo frame and kept the same lines as the sketch for the sentiments."
Adrienne and I were very much on the same wavelength in our product selection for these Father's Day cards! The Destination collection is great for not only travel/vacation projects but any masculine/everyday project as well.
Supplies: Destination (6x6 Tiny Tablet, Label Stickers, Circle & Tag Stickers, Embellishment Bundle, Letter Stickers).
I also chose to use circles in place of the squares in the sketch. I simply punched circles of a mix of sizes and layered them, then added a couple of tag stickers to finish it off. The new Alphabet Stickers are just the right size to fit on the label stickers.
For my second card I was inspired by the globe shape from the Destination collection chipboard. From that I got the theme for my card, the "You are our world" sentiment. The shapes on this card aren't in the same placement/sizing as the sketch, but, as I said, feel free to change things to fit what you are inspired to create based on sketches you use.
Supplies: Destination (Chipboard Stickers, Label Stickers, Embellishment Bundle, Letter Stickers, 6x6 Tiny Tablet)
The new chipboard and other embellishments are such a fun addition to the already-great line from Lily Bee. Here I used some chipboard and just a bit of twine to add texture to the card.
We hope that you have been inspired to create some cards and that you'll play along with our sketch challenge this month.
