Super Sketch Saturday Week 4 I can’t believe we’ve finished a full month of sketches together! It’s been so much fun sharing this series with you and I cannot believe how many cards I have finished working with these designs. This week’s sketch may look simple, but it creates an impressive card when you dress it up with your favorite papers and one large stamp. I’m finishing up my Christmas cards this week so I decided to use today’s sketch with products from the Comfort & Joy collection including the paper packet and the Comfort & Joy Scrapbooking stamp + Thin Cuts. I hope today’s sketch will inspire you to grab the supplies you have on hand and get creative!

Third Time’s The Charm Welcome to week three of our Super Sketch Saturday series! We’ve made some beautiful cards from sketched designs over the past two weeks. If you need to catch up, you can find week one here or week two here. Moving on to week three, I am focusing on taking a simple design to the next level. While this design looks great with a combination of cardstock mats and pattern paper, I decided to add interest to this card with embossing and glitter. I’ve used a snowflake embossing folder to add texture to the background. Changing the square elements out for die cut stitched brackets helps to elevate this card from basic to bold. In addition to the glitter paper, I heat embossed our Flourished Joy stamp for my sentiment. As you can see, today’s sketch was more of an inspiration for today’s card than an exact map of the design elements. I hope you’ll try working with the supplies you have on hand and a sketch that inspires you today. I can’t wait to see what you create!
