2sketch4you sketch challenge & Color Throwdown Challenge #109


Today I decided to combine the Color Throwdown Challenge with the 2sketch4you sketch challenge.....I know I know....it has taken me all week to get these challenges done!! I stamped this twice...once in Pear Pizzazz and once in Tempting Turquoise. I cut out the flowers from the Tempting Turquoise and glued them on to the Pear Pizzazz. I sponged the back ground with Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight and layers the main image on Pear Pizzazz. On the background piece I used Daffodil Delight ribbon and scrunched it as I layered it across the Melon Mambo DP. I made this card for my sister in law who has a birthday on the 19th. Happy Birthday, Anne!!!

Mojo Monday #155



To is Thursday.....where did the week go!!! This is my first chance to stamp this week. I think I had more time to stamp while homeschooling!! Now that the kids are in school it seems like I am running all the time!! While I was homeschooling I was here every day and while the kids worked independently I would stamp....now I find my days filling up and cramping my scrapping time!! If I don't get more time in I might have to start seeing a therapist....lol....cause you know I always say stamping is my therapy!! Any way here is my card for this week's Mojo Monday challenge.....and even though it took me till Thursday to get my mojo on....I do love how it turned out!! I am so not ready for winter but I just had to use my new VERVE stamps that I won!! Here is what I used to make this card: snowflake embossing folder, Stazon black ink, Stampin UP!'s Riding Hood Red cardstock and ink, black gingham ribbon, Stampin Up!'s tag punch, chuncky red glitter from Stampin Up!, and some wooden snowflakes given to my by my dear friend Teresa Kline.

Soul Scrappers Sketch Challenge

Soul Scrappers is hosting a sketch challenge right now.....here is my take on the challenge. I did the 1st page pretty much like the sketch but then I flipped it for the second page so that I could have a 2 page layout. These pictures are from our recent trip to Maine with our friends. Of course when you go to Maine you have to have some real....."lobstah"!!! If you haven't checked out the Soul Scrappers site.....Please do!! It is a great place to find inspiration, make new friends, and show off your work!!

Color Throwdown & Stamping 411 challenges



Today my card was designed using the Color Throwdown challenge and the Stampin 411 sketch challenge. I love the way this one turned out!! My So Saffron background was embossed using my Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder. I didn't have Choc. Chip mulberry paper so I made some by inking up a white piece....the edges that were still wet from tearing it and the edges got darker...really cool...even though I covered up most of it with my Kraft layer. My Kraft layer is stamped using a retired background stamp from Stampin Up called Script. The butterflies were created using my embosslit folder and Choc. Chip pearls...the tiny ones!! I threaded some So Saffron ribbon onto a hat pin and added some pearls to create the cross piece at the bottom.....I layered my on top of the main panel image instead of placing it behind....other than that I stuck pretty close to the sketch. Thanks for stopping by and having a look.....Come join the fun and play along with these challenges: Color Throwdown & Stamping 411

3 More Monogram cards for the Mojo Monday sketch

Yesterday I told you that I needed to make 4 monogram cards for birthdays that fall during this month......at the time I was not sure if I would use this same sketch or if I would do the others differently....I decided to use this same sketch.....amazing the different cards that you can create even if you are following the given sketch.


I love the individual look that each card following the same sketch.......check out yesterday's blog post to see the sketch. Even come on over to Mojo Monday and play along!!
