Marty’s Sunday Sketch #12 (a little late)

Hi Stampers! I apologize for being late with the Sunday Sketch. My blog has been going through a transition and I have been learning along the way. I am hoping that the little blog bumps are all gone-thanks to Kelly!

I have a HUGE LOVE for birds and butterflies! Marty’s sketch was a perfect reason to create a card with a bird…once again. I just CAN NOT get enough. I made this card LIVE on my LIVE crafting broadcast & it was so much fun.

Created by Jen Nagel

When I first saw the sketch, I thought it was a great opportunity to work with SU’s Sunny Day Simply Scrappin’ kit which would force me out of my comfort zone in terms of color combinations. By inking around the edges and adding the different color wings (via the new bird/branch punch) I felt it muted the bright colors without losing the fun element of the kit. I was extremely honored to actually make this card “live” as a guest on Heidi’s webcast last week. :-)

I decided to use the image of the cage, but after I stamped it, I thought that poor trapped bird looked kind of sad.  So I added the text to turn it into something humorous. I think it would be a great card to send to a workaholic friend.

For this sketch as soon as I saw the bird I was inspired by the the
anticipation of spring.  I also just received the new Stampin Up! bird
punch and was excited to try it out.  I pictured a 3-d element in the
“window” of Marty’s sketch.  I decided the vintage music sheet was
appropraite for my little “song bird”.

I was inspired by this weeks Splitcoast challenge for the Easel card. It went perfectly with this weeks sketch and came right in time for my moms birthday. 😉

Surprise! No ink pad was used in this creation. I punched, chalked, dry embossed, trimmed, and glued. As with all my submissions for Marty’s sketches, I start with something sitting on my work table. In this case, a bunch of scraps from the January team swap (can’t tell you what it is). Then I added something my substitute secret sister sent several months ago. Although I swore off glitter for the next few weeks, the butterfly was pre-glittered. This was a quick project as most of the pieces were already made.
After I started this, I immediately thought of another version using something a little unexpected. Perhaps I’ll be able to use it for his next sketch.
