Sketches By Carly #60 with Bugaboo Stamps

Hello all you wonderful, creative bloggers/readers out there!! I am so excited to be a Guest Designer with Sketches By Carly.  I am learning so much by being part of this wonderful team.  I created my card using Bugaboo "Silhouette - Day After Forever" Digi Stamp.  I love their digi stamps; especially their silhouette digi stamps because I have not learned how to color yet.  Imagine that - a child knows how to color; but as an adult I find it is much harder for me; especially using all the new types of coloring tools.  Ha!!  I just need to take time to practice; which I haven't done.  I have watched tutorials; but still haven't figured it out.  I guess I will stick to silhouettes for now.  I am excited to be using digi stamps even if they aren't the kind you color yourself.

Don't forget to drop by Sketches By Carly and enter your card in the challenge; which starts today.  Carly is a very talented 13 yr. old who creates these sketches every two weeks and there are great prizes to win.


I used the yellow background so you could see the white on the card easier.  It looked yellow on the white background.  I love this sketch so much that I cut out another one at the same time.  I also tweaked it a little to make another card for the white on white card I created on June 25th.  Check it out on my blog.  I hope you enjoy this sketch as much as I do.



Bugaboo stamps is sponsoring this sketch for the next 2 weeks.  They are giving away 7 digital stamps so be sure and get your creation posted for a chance to win.

Don't forget to check out my Virtual Card Club where everything is sent to your home to create beautiful cards.  Tell your friends or give it as a gift for someone you love.  They will be thrilled.  Check out the details under the Virtual Card Club tab at the top of the page.  Here is a picture of the first 4 cards created for my card club.  Email me at: purpleglocreations@socal.rr.com to join today!!

    1. I appreciate the compliment Margreet. My biggest problem with coloring is I don't have the right colors to go together. CTMH is coming out with new ones July 12th; so I am hoping I can start getting theirs. I have a few copics but not enough colors. I have Bic markers; but the sets really don't seem to have lighter colors like I need. I have to do this next one with colors and I am nervous. I don't want to embarass myself or anyone else on the team. HA!! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. Have a fantastic day Margreet.
