Two card for Wednesday's sketch challenge

Here are 2 cards that I made for Wednesday's sketch challenge found on Splitcoast Stampers . I have give a link to the challenge underneath the picture of my cards. I love this sketch and will use it alot in the futre.
The Night of Navy card is pretty simple--my trio of panels measures 1 1/16 x 4 and the red piece was cut after the trio was glued in place. I sponges the edges of each trio pieace before I glued them. My shell panel was cute to size of the shell, sponged and then layered. I finished it off with a knotted piece of hemp.
The Creamy Carmel card was made using the same dimensions for the imaged trio panels but instead of a large layer for all three pieces I layered each one individually. I like this look better but it makes for a heavier card. On my made panel I included a "net" made out of Stampin Up!'s mesh. I love the way it turned out--looks like I caught some shells in my net!! The shells were stamped with Choc. Chip onto Baja Breeze paper and then cut out. This card I finished off with a ribbon slide and some Creamy Carmel ginham ribbon.
I guess you could say I am wishing I was at the beach right now. I am hoping that before the summer is over we can take a trip to the beach even if it just for the day.

One of the ladies that works for me at Cabin Creekwood asked me to make her a cat I decided to combine today's color challenge from SCS with the Mojo challenge from ArtisticPoetry. This is what I came up with--Purrfect!!

I cut our my little kitty and layered her on a white circle--then I layered it on a black scalloped punch out--my cross panel is cameo coral and DP--the scallop across this panel was made by using my slit punch and lining up one punch after another--next I used my paper piercer to add the holes in each scallop--I finished my card off with a knotted ribbon and sentiment.

Have a great week--Happy stamping!!

Little Cabin in the Woods

Here is my card for 2 of SCS challenges ( IC138 TLC179). The inspiration challenge was to find our favorite website and use it for our inspiration. I chose to use the website of our family business.
The second challenge was to use a blintz base--a type of origami fold. I found this folding technique to be a fun addition to my card--will have to use again.
I chose to have the blintz base be the center of a 5.5 x 5.5 card. Inside of my fold I added a white piece of cardstock on which I had stamped my row of trees from the Stampin Up! set LOVELY AS A TREE. I added a sponged sun with a finger dauber and then glued in place. I attached the outside corners with rhinestone brads. My background was created by stamping the large pine tree from this same set in Wild Wasabi directly onto the pre-embossed card and then adding blue scraps with sponged edges (sponges with Baja Breeze) as my mountains. The sentiment that I used was hand written--really wanted to use the word relax and couldn't find one in all my stamp!! Go figure!!
Any way this card reminds me so much of what we have to offer here at Cabin Creekwood. Here is a slide show that will give you a taste of what we have here in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Maybe this will inspire you to add us to your list of places you want to visit. Would love to host your vacation get-away and just maybe we could spend some time stamping together!!

Sendable Sentiments has a blog!!

Well here I go--I thought I would give this blogging a try and set up one of my own. Now that I have the account set up I am not sure what to do next!! I will have to work at this. Be patient with me as I get started.
