A Valentine Sketch!

Happy Monday everyone! It’s sketch time at Stampin’ Celebration!

SCIpix-019My card:

DSCN1362Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I used that as the theme of my card – I apologize for the quality of the photo. Between the patterned paper and the glimmer hearts, the camera had a hard time focusing!

I also kept things very simple (seems to be a regular occurrence with my cards lately!) as I was trying to create a masculine card – not easy, especially for a Valentine!

Our challenge is open until Friday, February 5th, at 9pm EST, so there’s plenty of time to play along.

Please head on over to the Stampin’ Celebration blog and check out what my fellow DT members have created. I know you are going to love all of their creations!

And as with any challenge, there are a few rules to keep in mind:

  • Feel free to use any brand of product you may have in your Stash.
  • We ask that you create a new project for this challenge and add a link to our blog or use the challenge graphic in your post.

Clean & Simple for STB!

 - by OttawaMom

Happy Thursday everyone!  It’s time for our first challenge of 2016, here at Seize the Birthday, and there is no “Topping”, so the sky is the limit!

1175095_10151587494757547_730720239_n-4But remember, it is always “Anything Goes” at Seize the Birthday, just keep things to a birthday theme.

My card:

I always find Clean and Simply a bit of a challenge, especially since I like to add a little bling or some other embellishment to a card.  But today I managed a simple card and took inspiration from the colour challenge at Color Throwdown and the sketch challenge #252 at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday. I’d also like to enter my card in the “Anything Goes” challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!
