Retro Sketches #83, Simon Says Wednesday, Insider Class, and Just For Fun

When I saw this sketch for this week's Retro Sketches rs#83, I knew I would play along.  I love this sketch as a way to use some hoarded patterned papers.  I have been loving the colors and patterns in my new Lawn Fawn Into the Woods paper, so that is what I used.

I have been a terrible student so far.  I have only watched a few videos from the Insider Card Class, and have finally made one thing.  I took the Bat Mitzvah card that I showed here, and made a fun little envelope inside to hold the check that was our gift.

I used the Seed Packet Die, and cut the top off with the pinking die.  Then I made a little pull tag with a strip of folded paper and a stamp from Movers and Shakers.

My last card for today is just for fun.  I wanted to play a bit more with my new Bubble Talk set.  I was inspired to make this pattern paper border by this card by Maile Belles.

I am entering all three cards into this week's Simon Says Wednesday Challenge of Anything Goes.

  1. Tee hee, Joyce ... you and me both with the Insider Class ... if it was regular school I'd be in detention!! Gorgeous colours on the LF DP, the embossed gift pocket is stunning and your JFF card is just that ... fun and happy! Anita :)

  2. Love all three of your cards and I am a bad student for this Insider Class as well, though we just returned from Disney on Friday night so I think I have a good excuse. haha

  3. Joyce...I love all of your cards, so fun! Happy to know I am in very good company in school, I guess all of us at the cool table skipped school. I love your card border, how did I miss that one! But I will be making plenty of these, so fabulous! I love your RS card too, that design is amazing and like you said a great use for all the patterned paper that I know you hoard!

  4. Great cards Joyce. I love the pocket on the inside of your second card and your last card is so much fun.

  5. LOVE your take on the Retro sketch! Great color and so modern. Lol, don't worry about the class - I'm right there with you! I watched Day 1 and that was it. Too short for me to keep up. Love what you've done so far in the class. Let's make a pact to keep going even though its over!

  6. Love them all! Love the pull tab you made for the check to pull out. I am so glad that I am not the only one who only made a few cards. I did watch almost all the videos … You and Kim make me feel like a very good Beautiful work!

  7. I forgot to say how much I love the shape of your first card. looks hard to make!

  8. Love the design on your birthday card. I've been meaning to try that. It looks so great and really would be a great use for my patterned paper stash! I tried a funky border on one of my 12 Kits cards. It's another way to play with different patterns.

  9. Lovely cards. Love interactive features on cards- looking forward to seeing more of your homework!

  10. I love the RS card, I'll be making one, too. And the border on the other one caught my attention when I saw Maile do it. I did not sign up for class this time as I rarely do anything on the inside of my cards. I hope I don't regret it when I see what the rest of you do.

  11. Love all of these interactive cards...great colors on all! Thanks for playing along in the Anything Goes Challenge with us over at the Simon Says Stamp Wed Challenge Blog!

  12. More wonderful cards Joyce! Love the bubble talk card. So cute!

  13. Fun cards. I came to comment on the Retro Sketches design..that little stripe of orange is stunning on the card. I love it!

  14. Such clever designs, every one! What a fun way to include a gift inside your card. Love those vibrant colors on the last one with the overlapping stamping in one corner!

  15. All of these are amazing Joyce! So glad you played along with us at Retro Sketches!
