Waving Hello-Deconstructed Sketch #157

DS157-close up

Oooh, I just love days like today… days when I get to share awesome news with my readers!  Today marks my first day as a new member of the Deconstructed Sketch team!  I’ve always wanted to be on a sketch challenge team, so awhile back I decided to email Jen Shults and asked her to keep me in mind if she ever needed a new team member, and lo and behold here I am!  I’m very happy with this new assignment, and know that you’re going to love the sketches (if you don’t already!) and the awesome team members that’ll have plenty of inspiration for you!

Are you ready for this weeks sketch?  Here ya’ go!


LOVE it!  Now, I have plenty of fabulous flower dies I could have used for this sketch, but I decided to go a different route…


I took a nautical route!  My card was made using the Sailboat Die-Namics and Go Overboard stamp set from My Favorite Things.  I started my card by using the Waves Stencil with some clear embossing paste on Blu Raspberry card stock.  While that dried, I cut out my sailboat using Sweet Tooth card stock, Sour Apple card stock and Berrylicious card stock.  I stamped the BG Grid background on the sails using Sour Apple premium dye ink, and stamped the sentiment on the Berrylicious card stock using Nightshift Blue premium dye ink.  The center panel was cut using the Horizontal Strips Die-Namics, and layered on a Pierced Rectangle STAX Die-Namics.  Near the bottom of the navy blue panel I added some waves cut with a now-retired Die-Namics die from Sweet Tooth card stock, then sponged the edges with some Berrylicious hybrid ink.  Over on the top left corner I added a Sour Apple card stock flag cut from the Blueprints 13 Die-Namics.  I finished it up by adding some enamel dots. 

Here’s what I added to the inside…

What a fantastic card, Tammy! I love every perfect detail, and how you went your own way and used a sailboat instead of flowers! Awesome. I am so excited to have you on the team! Hope you have a wonderful day!
