Creative Sketches Design Team CS03 NEW Card Share

Wow… last week my mind was on Pluto!  I posted the wrong sketch, challenge, etc… not sure how that happened, but happily very few people noticed LOL!!  The Creative Sketches Design Team takes challenges to an all new level… we bring you international talent from all venues, and the challenges vary from week to week… a little something for everyone!   The design team members are very creative artists like my friend Tee of Green Isles Crafts… Some of them are demonstrators, and others are hobbyists who dabble in all sorts of stamps and mediums.

Today, I’ve got three cards to share… the one that I originally made for today’s sketch challenge, the one I was supposed to post last week, and a new version for this week.. it’s like winning the lottery!

Here’s the sketch we were supposed to work on this week for the Creative Sketches Design Team… CS03 is both a sketch, and technique challenge.  The sketch can be viewed below… the technique:  dry embossing.


LOL.. you’ve already seen my card which I posted last week in error HERE.

The challenge I was supposed to post was CSO2… a color challenge… and here is the card I created especially for that challenge using the Paradise Stamp Set.  You can view the original challenge post here at the Creative Sketches Design Team blog HERE.


Don’t want to disappoint you.. so I created another card using the CS03 challenge criteria

Hi Sharon
All gorgeous cards. Loved your card for last weeks colour challenge and the one you posted that was for this week is elegant.

Oooo....I love both cards, but the first one is my fav!! Can you tell me where you got that Paradise stamp set? Is it Stampin up? I've never seen it in their catalogs (at least I don't think I have), but I LOVE it!! :)

I love the first one. Is 'dry embossing' the kind we've done in class with powder? I've been looking every where for instructions. Then I thought maybe it's what I've already done but just knowing it by 'embossing'. Geesh, I have so much to learn...................
