Sophisticated Script & Suite Sayings - Mixing It Up for FabFri83 & GDP029

I'm doubling everything up today!  TWO posts, TWO different stamp companies mixing TWO sentiment sets and TWO challenges in this post... I actually had time to stamp last night! Yay!

I first saw this sketch a few days ago and loved the simplicity.  Both of the cards are using this sketch.  I may have stretched it a little, but it's just how I interpreted the sketch :)


I had just received my Sophisticated Script stamp set from Concord & 9th on Monday and couldn't wait to try it out.  I'm a pretty loyal SU! girl - never blogged about any other stamp set, but I absolutely loved this calligraphy look.  Heck, maybe SU! will come out with something very similar in the new catalog!  


I also love the sentiment set called Suite Sayings in the Occasions catalog.  Here I took the "for being you" part and added the thanks from the Sophisticated Script set.  Those letters lined up so easily!


For the second card using the Fab Friday sketch, I paired the colors from the Global Design Project blog. I'll be honest and say that I got these colors out, glanced at the (already great) submissions and thought "nah... I'll skip this week".  But later on that night I decided to make one more card mixing the C&9th set and the Suite Sayings and thought I'd make this a card I could give to my hubby. 

I do love the orange and it reminded me of my husband's orange Jeep.  I decided to add the chevron embossed layer to look like tire tracks and the sentiment... well, it speaks for itself.

The colors are a great masculine combo, but I did add some Wink of Stella to the word "smiles" just for fun!

Here I stamped the "smiles" out in Bermuda Bay first.  Then I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the "my heart" and "just thinking of you".  

I'm happy with how they both turned out and hope they inspire you to mix things up!  

Make sure to head on over to Fab Friday and the Global Design Project blogs to check out all of the great inspiration!

See you back here Friday for another TGIF Challenge!

  2. Awesome use of the colours Holly! The stripes, texture and splatters work so well together without overwhelming the card. Very clever. Thanks for playing at Global Design Project with us.

  5. Great cards! I like the oval sentiment panel on the first for sure...you can definitely still see our sketch there. And the embossing and creative use of the sentiment on the second card are great details! Thanks for sharing both cards at Fab Friday!
