Sketch Time at Sunday Stamps!

Happy Sunday stampers! I do hope that everyone is having a great weekend. Ours has been chalk full of all sorts of fun activities, including the kids’ first sail boat ride!

Before we get to our new challenge at Sunday Stamps, I want to give a shout out to Joan, who is stepping down from the Design Team. I will miss working with her but wish her all the best in her future endeavours.

Now onto the challenge – it’s time for a fun new sketch!

Our challenge:

My card:P1150835I will admit, that it took me a while to come up with a plan for my card. My original idea looked awful (what looked good in my head, didn’t look at all right in real life!). And then I realized the one Die that would have been perfect for the large circle in the background, I sold to make room for new Stampin’ Up! Products!  So back to the drawing board I went.

In the end I decided to trim one of the Tea Lace Doilies for the background, found some flowers, leftover from previous projects, in my stash, and put them together with some DSP and pretty ribbon, to come up with what you see here.  This is one of those times where it paid off to keep leftover bits and pieces!

Please do check out what my fellow DT members have created. I know you are going to be inspired by what they have come up with! Holly (creator)MarieKathya and Angel.

And just to keep things fair, please remember that we do have a few rules. You can check them out here.

The deadline to submit your creation is Friday, August 22nd, at 6pm (EST), so there’s plenty of time to play along!

Hope to see you in the gallery!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock: Pistachio Pudding, Whisper White, Gold Soiree DSP

Ink: Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding

Stamp Set: Secret Garden (R), Morning Meadow (R), Endless Birthday Wishes

Tools & Embellishments: Basic Pearl Jewels, Whisper White Organza Ribbon, Tea Lace Doilie

Working on My CAS Style!

Good morning everyone and happy Monday!!  It was a relatively quiet weekend around here. Since the hubby and little one were away camping, I stole away to my craft room for a little while on Saturday, while my oldest had a friend over. It was bliss to have some time to myself to just craft!

I am finding it easier and easier to create cards that are clean and simple and I am really happy with this one! I combined the sketch from CAS(E) this sketch! with the colour combo at Color Throwdown and this is what I came up with:


The colour combo was just too pretty for me to resist putting flowers on my card and I am in love with that tiny floral image from the new set Something to Say!

Thanks for taking a look!

Here’s what I used:

Card Stock: Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White

Ink: Tangerine Tango, Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz. Black Stazon

Stamp Sets: Flower Shop, Morning Meadow, Something to Say, Work of Art

Embellishments: Candy Dots




A Little Hope

Today is a good day because not only is it Wednesday but it’s time for our Subtles week at Colour Me…! This week we are using the colours Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky and Coastal Cabana.


I was thinking Spring again when I was creating my card for this week because I really need to be done with all this winter stuff! But since we are getting ANOTHER snowstorm today, I’m beginning to think this may be the only way I get to see it again – on paper!  It has to end soon right?!?!  I can hope!

Our challenge will end on March 24th, at 12:00pm (EST). And as with any challenge, there are a few rules – you can check them out here.
