Sketch Saturday

Well I think our nice weather will end next week. The weatherman has us for the 40’s next week. That still isn’t bad considering we could be in the teen’s. I was reading several blogs and found a sketch and a color challenge I decided to combine. I like the colors and the card is very dotty but I think it is cute anyway. What do you think? The sketch is from Beate’s blog and the color challenge is from Michelle’s blog. Both of these ladies do some great work. Visit their blogs and join in on the fun. Here is the sketch and my card.

Stamps: In the Spotlight (Hostess, Fall & Winter 2007), Warm Words, Itty Bitty Backgrounds Paper: White, Brilliant Blue, Glorious Green Ink: Brilliant Blue, Glorious Green Accessories: gold brad, dimensionals, sponge circle cutter, scallop punch

Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend!

Another Friday Special

I am really enjoying this weather. It does however create a problem when you look forward to making lots of snowmen cards and the weather just does not say snow! One of the blogs I read has some gorgeous cards on it. I love what she does but they are not quick cards. After looking at her cards I wanted to try some of the techniques she uses in a card I made. Here is what I created. Let me know what you think of it.

Stamps: Garden Silhouettes Paper: Very Vanilla, Mellow Moss, Elegant Eggplant, Pale Plum Ink: Elegant Eggplant Accessories: Pale Plum – Mellow Moss – Elegant Eggplant markers, ribbon (Michael’s), hole punch, ticket corner punch, gold brads, sponge

Thanks for looking!

Thursday’s Design by Candice

Oh my gosh it has just been one of those days, you know what I mean we have all had them :-).

I have some news to tell, we will be adding to our family and we pick him up on Saturday. We are adopting a puppy and he is so cute (but aren’t they all). I will post some photos this weekend when we get him home, Sloane and Sam have no idea, but they have both been asking for one. I can’t wait to see their faces when they see him.

Okay so on to my card, I was cutting for my workshop for Friday and I knew I had to do a post today so I used all my scraps to make this one, I hope you like what I came up with.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs and A Beautiful Thing Paper: Groovy Guava, Rose Red, Cameo Coral, Vanilla, and Ginger Blossom Designer Series Paper Ink: Rose Red and River Rock Accessories: Circle Punche, Scallop Punch, Crafters tool Kit, and Rhinestone Brad.

Color Challenge

Candice and I have been running lately. She is busy with her kids and school events and I have been busy preparing for the next semester. We missed yesterday but decided to do it today just so you would not miss us! This week I decided we should do blue cards. I was thinking at the time that we could do snowmen since it would be cold. But with the weather lately I really wonder if we will get any snow. In honor of our gorgeous weather, here is my card.
Stamps: Festive Favorites, Thanks Snow Much (retired) Paper: Night of Navy, Bashful Blue, and last year’s designer series paper from the Holiday Mini Ink: Basic Black, Whisper White Craft Accessories: Going Gray – Pumpkin Pie – and Night of Navy markers, photo corner punch, stickles, dimensionals, computer to generate sayings.

The inside saying is “Will it snow, Will it snow, Will it snow!” Couldn’t resist this play on the popular song with our weather we are having. I also had great lighting so there is a shadow fron the photo corner which was popped up. I can’t believe how clear the card is with just a lot of sunlight to photograph the picture in. Here is Candice’s card.

Stamps: Merry & Bright, Season by Season, and Happy Everything Paper: Taken with Teal, Tempting Turquoise, Soft Sky, and White Ink: Taken with Teal and Basic Black Markers: Taken with Teal, Only Orange, Tempting Turquoise, and Gelly Roll Pen Accessories: Tempting Turquoise Ribbon, Soft Sky Ribbon, Hodgepodge Hardware, Stickles, Dimensionals, Circle Punches, Scallop Punch, Cuttlebug, Taken with Teal and Tempting Turquoise Brads.
