Hoot Hoot You're So Cute - Crafty Sketchbook Card Sketch

Hello and welcome to my blog; This week I am featuring projects using the Adorable Owls Stamp Set from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.

Adorable Owls Stamp Set, Stampin' Up!, Handmade Card by Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Rick Adkins, Stampin' Blends coloring, Timber 3d Embossing  Folder, Tree Rings Hybrid Embossing Folder

Today's project uses some of my favorite products and one of my go to colors. If you have followed me for a while you know that I love Crumb Cake. It's one of my favorite naturals and I try to sneak it in as much as possible.

Card Sketches:

My project today was based on the sketch below. I love card sketches and I find them very helpful. If you are starting out or have been crafting for awhile card sketches can help by giving you a jumping off point for your creative experience.

When using card sketches you can change up items, change elements, and most importantly get your creative juices flowing. Even through I didn't use the same shapes as the sketch I still have some of the same elements, and the elements on my card are in basically the same place.
