Twisted Sketches Card #46

love beyond measure

It’s Saturday and time for a brand new card sketch at This week’s twist is “heart” any way, any how. My base is Bassill Cardstock, cut & folded to 4.25″x5.5″, topped by K&Co cardstock trimmed to 4″x5.25″ and adhered with my ATG gun. (Have I told you lately how much I love it! EVEN tho the last time I refilled it, I hurried & forgot to put the lockguard on the tape roll holder and had an UHOH! moment, but it was easy enough to fix. And now I look around for leftover pieces before I use it LOL). The sentiment panel is Studio112 Ornate Tags (also from K&Co. at JoAnn’s, trimmed & mounted on a slightly larger panel of the back side of the patterned cardstock). Add some recycled K&Co. chipboard letters with a Heidi Swapp self-adhesive chipboard heart, each edged with a Petal Pink Bic Mark-It permanent marker, and adhered with Alene’s original Tacky glue. “beyond measure” is in Paula’s pretty font (aka my handwriting, first in Petal Pink but didn’t like it so I went over it with Plumtastic Purple). A final finishing flourish was created with a tape measure ribbon repurposed from a clothing tag (for a company called TapeMeasure no less–I bought a few items extra just for the tags, but they are comfy and cute too). Thanks for looking & be sure to check out the site for fab cards from the entire design team OR check out the new, brand spanking new, TwistedSketches Facebook page. “like” it while you’re there & you won’t miss a new post :).

PS. If you’ve been by looking for the art journaling stuff I promised this week, THANKS for stopping by! I’ve been under the weather with some weird upper respiratory crud that mimics flu and/or strep throat for about a week now. Went to the DR Wed. & found out: 1. it is striking lots of folks, including the entire staff at their office, 2. whatever you do it is tending to last a full 2 weeks, 3. the dizzy, walking like you’re hulahooping effect I’ve had was from fluid in my inner ear. So I have one more week (please Lord let that be all) to push thru & I’ll be popping in to share some art journaling and swapping projects that I’m working on/planning. Thanks for your patience and stopping by!!
