I Love Sketches by Tsunami Rose Tutorial November 19, 2012

Welcome - I'm sew delighted you came to visit today as I have a card which I have created using paper from Tsunami Rose.  

I just want to say that one of the wonderful aspects of being part of the Tsunami Rose Design Team are the sneak peaks we get from all of Daisy's marvelous designs. Beginning November 1, 2012, Tsunami Rose Designs will begin selling the first ever, Life Abloom Printable Journal. This is one stunning design you will not want to miss. When you purchase a printable from the Tsunami Rose Designs Shop, you are purchasing a high-quality digital image that is printable on any type of printer. What is really superb, once you purchase the design you and use it as many times as your desire. I promise, the Life Abloom Journal Kit is one design you will not want to miss. To add to the fun, the first 20 people to purchase the journal will get an additional free $5 to spend in the Tsunami Rose Design Shop.

First, I must tell you that my card making style could be considered Funky Shabby Chic ... I don't usually follow the rules and always add my own twist!!!

I was asked to use a paper in her store called Bingo Grunge and my design went from there. As a rule, when I don't have a sketch, I go rummaging through my papers, embellishments and find things that "talk" to me and create from there ... 

  • DCWV LaCreme stack was cut 6 x 12 inches and then using Martha Stewart Score Board was folded in half
  • Background paper is Graphic 45 Le' Romantique Collection Enamored Embrace which found a package of 25 sheets of this paper at Tuesday Morning for $3.25 was cut at 5.75 x 5.75 inches and edges were inked 
  • Accent 2 from Cricut Heritage Cartridge was cut at 4.5 inches from the "Bingo" area of the paper while the roses were fussy cut and both were inked

  • Puff-dots were added behind the floral motifs which were then layered on my card

  • Brown metallic ribbon was tied in a bow with an under piece placed about 1/2 inch from the edge of my card 
  • There was no sentiment added to this card as I  thought I would use this as  a note card
I encourage you to visit and check out her sketches by joining her challenge and/or visiting her Facebook group! You can also visit her on I Love Sketches by Tsunami Rose and become a follower. You will become addicted and rise to the challenge!!!
