ASD Sketch

Before I get to the NEW Apron Strings Designs sketch, I want to let you know that if you look in my left sidebar, you will see a link to ALL my sketches. Click on the image to go to my sketch gallery. You should be able to view and print all my sketches. I'll add new ones each week. If there is a problem with the gallery, please contact me.

Also, if you look in my right sidebar, you will see a link to my vintage project gallery. Once the Graphic 45 DT call is announced, I'll be taking down my slideshow, but you will be able to see all my vintage goodies in the special gallery. I hope to add galleries for embossing folders and Copics soon! Have fun peeking!

Here is a new sketch I have created just for Apron Strings. I'll be creating a card sketch for ASD every month. Look for it here near the 12th of each month. I hope you like it!

I used the March ASD Card Kit to create my card. This is the Scenic Route paper set from the kit.

The brads are from my stash, as all the brads in the kit are cream. However, if you don't have the color of brad you need, you can alter them with Copics, alcohol inks, embossing powder, glitter, or paint! How cool is that?!

Check out my paper piercing. I'm still getting the hang of this. I need to invest in a few more piercing templates. If anyone know where I can get my hands on some, let me know. Right now I have the Stampin' Up one, but I know there are others out there.

I hope you enjoyed this ASD sketch debut! See you on Monday for my 365 Cards challenge! It's a fun one, so stop back!


  1. well i am thrilled you set up the galleries :) and am looking forward to the copic one as you are now a copic convert LOL this is a fantastic bright pretty card :) it also works for the OCC Easter challenge that starts today...just saying! lol

  2. Just beautiful! Love the papers. Tim Holtz has a piercing ruler, it's only a straight line but works well and you can get it at Ms @ about 6.99 but if you have a coupon it's even cheaper...just saying! {lol}

  3. Love your card Gloria! I just learned about the template for peircing...don't have one yet but they are very cool - you did an awesome job!
    I left you something on my blog - check it when you get time (ha ha)

  4. love your cards! I enjoyed your blog today please visit one of these when you get time.

  5. Hi Gloria -
    This is beautiful - the colors are delicious. Everything looks so neat and tidy, and done with such care. Actually, I could probably write this comment on every one of your cards, you are so talented !! (Now you made me want to try some brighter colors !)

  6. Hi again Gloria, I love the clean simple lines of your sketch, and the fab colours on your card! Love how you make all those pretty patterns work together. xx
