Three cards featuring one sketch design with two themes

Can't believe how long it has been since I blogged!?!!!

This blog post will be a tad complicated but hopefully I will set it up in sections to be easily followed. Three cards using mostly items from my October "All About Autumn" counterfeit kit for CKC blog were made yesterday. All three cards used the same sketch design shared in the CCMWF secret group from Facebook. And 2 of the 3 fit the colors and/or elements from the Inspired By #44 photo prompt titled "Soup is on".

Card no. 1: Trendy thank you card for our pastor's family

Design notes:
a. barn siding and colors (soft peach, sage, tan, and gray) are found in the Inspired By #44 photo prompt
b. plaid paper, animal print paper, barn siding with chevron paper were in October CKC blog kit
c. kraft cardstock paper was used in August or September CKC blog kit
d. planner stickers were new add-ons
e. decorative hexagon tape was add-on
f. sketch design shared in CCMWF secret group Facebook on October 20, 2018:
g. Inspired By #44 photo prompt:

h. proof of tan animal print paper was pulled from old inventory for the October CKC blog kit that I put together. (bottom left corner) The plaid was buried on this table, too, along with that bold barn siding chevron designer patterned paper. Link to the CKC blog page:

Card no. 2: Birthday for my mom with autumn mood

Design notes and links:
A. 7 designer papers were all from October kit for CKC blog (some of the papers can be seen in the bottom left corner in the paper pile photo; others like the glossy textured ATC size papers used as backgrounds are seen in the middle row right side stack on top)
B. kraft cardstocks used for card base was either August or September CKC blog kits
C. Link for CKC blog:
D. IB no 44 photo prompt challenge criteria: soft greens, whites, peach and pumpkin colors
F. sketch design follows the CCMWF shared sketch fairly similar; Gooseberry Patch chipboard sticker instead of a flower; sentiment stamped on additional paper due to dark chocolate brown print as background

Card no. 3: birthday card for classmate's mom with music elements

Design notes and links:
A. 3 designer papers (soft pink with music printed in white and the 2 glossy ATC sized textured papers in white and gold) [from Hot Off the Press and sold by Paper Wishes] were in the mega October kit for CKC blog; can see the small papers sitting on tops of 2 piles
B. 1 designer paper burgundy brocade [from The Paper Studio by Hobby Lobby]
D. Sketch design follows the CCMWF shared sketch the best; 
E. music cardstock papers and pink metallic ribbon were received in a card kit for competing in recent CCMWF challenges
F. music print decorative tape just seen on left side and right side behind the burgundy brocade paper is about 1 year old; purchased at Dollar Tree

Thank you for following along and I hoped you looked back at the sketch design and the photo prompt pic as they related to the different cards. Check back in a day or two. I hope I can make some Thanksgiving and Christmas cards as well as get my remnants of October kit documented before pulling papers and embellishments for November. I'm enjoying the challenge of using up old inventory to either scrapbook old vacation or family photos OR make cards and other paper-crafted creations.

    1. Thanks for checking my link-up post, Laurel! And thanks for your Inspired By series of challenges!

  2. Great job w/ those cards... love the way you changed each of them up a bit!

    1. Thanks, Doreen! It ended up being an easy sketch to do! Thanks for reading my post!

  3. Your cards are all fabulous! I love the way they each look so unique and yet you followed the same sketch!

    1. Kate: thanks! Using different sets of papers has made them look distinct, I think. Almost difficult to realize that same sketch was used. Thanks for reading my post!
