Saturday Sketch + Card Video & PDF Tutorial

My brother and his family stayed with us in our itty bitty one-story 1200 square feet home this week and it was crazy!  Crazy in a super fun way, though.  I love my niece and twin nephews.  They are 7, 5 and 5.  Those ages are so healing and healthy for an adult to take his or her mind off the cares of the world.  What's more important this morning than playing a Wii Mario Kart tournament?  Nothing?  Or what's more important this evening than roasting a marshmallow over a campfire for a s'more?  Nothing!

Using a sketch like this week's from Splitcoaststampers is a timesaver in week's like this past one where there wasn't much time to create.  There's even a forum thread to post a photo of what you make with the sketch, or to gallery gaze at what others did with it.

I loved the idea of combining the Buffalo Check background stamp with Free As A Bird.  The images were colored with Stampin' Blends, as were the pearls.  

Did you know you could color pearls, rhinestones, and ribbons with Stampin' Blends?  Since the Blends are alcohol inks, they can be used on both porous and non-porous surfaces.  I love that ability to have embellishments in whatever Stampin' Up! color I need!

Knowing people learn by different methods, I've created both a video and a written tutorial for this week's sketch card.  Enjoy!
