Basic Card Sketch : 1.14.13

This week’s sketch is brought to you by BG sketch artist Susan Stringfellow – our first card sketch of 2013.  Feel free to be inspired to create a card, a layout, an altered piece – whatever you’d like!  Our goal is to simply jumpstart your creativity!

HB2U | Kelly Rasmussen

BasicGrey card designer Kelly Rasmussen used this week’s sketch paired with our Fact and Fiction collection.  Kelly notes, “One of my goals for 2013 is to make and send more birthday cards. I think everyone loves to get cards in the mail for their birthday…and even better if they are handmade! So this sketch gave me the perfect place to start building up my stash. It was very easy to pull this card together by using lots of products from the Fact and Fiction line. And I also stamped the Life of the Party Stars image on the blue paper to create the tone on tone background.”

Now it’s your turn! We’d love to see what you create from this week’s sketch. Leave a comment below with a link to your project and we’ll select one comment at random to receive a $10 credit to shop at Comment must be posted by January 24, 2013 at 11:59p MST.

If you upload your layout to your blog or online gallery, we hope you’ll also upload it to our BasicGrey flickr pool and note what products you’ve used so that other BG fans can find inspiration from your work easily.

    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Thank you!

  7. Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.

    A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance”
    between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve
    done a amazing job with this. In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Firefox.
    Excellent Blog!

  8. Hi, I do believe your site could be having web browser compatibility
    problems. When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues.

    up! Aside from that, great blog!

  9. I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and engaging,
    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I came across this in my search for something relating to this.

  11. First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts
    in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure
    in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any
    recommendations or hints? Thanks!

  14. Its like you learn my mind! You seem to grasp a lot about
    this, like you wrote the guide in it or something. I feel that you just can do with a few % to pressure the
    message house a bit, however instead of that, this
    is magnificent blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.

  15. Whats up this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you
    have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get
    guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be
    greatly appreciated!

  16. Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
    are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because
    I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another
    platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  19. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
    and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
