Saturday Sketch #15

Happy Saturday!

I have another sketch that I pinned on Pintrest ages ago and haven't tried yet.

So I challenged my friend Chaunnelle and myself to try it out.

Here is the card that I created using the sketch.

The paper is super old Basic Grey paper that I had laying around my table so I put it to use!
I colored the image with my Tombow USA Recycled Colored Pencils.

The sentiment is from the Loving Messages Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.

I'm not sure if Chaunnelle had time to try the sketch but check out her blog and see what she has been up to!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sparkly Ocean

Boy is it HOT this week!

No doubt about it...summer is here!

Summer makes me yearn for the ocean so I thought I would share this fun ocean scene card that I made with the Under the Sea stencil.

I used the Fitted Frames B set to create a fun easel card.

I also used  Sticky Panels for the Double glitter technique.

The stenciled the Small Scallop Shell on turquoise cardstock with Silver Embossing Paste and fussy cut it out before adding it to the inside card panel.

The rest of the team are sharing their summer cards all week long so stop by the Stampendous Blog for more links to great projects!

Higher that the Sky

Happy Monday!

The heat has come to California and I so wish I had a boat to go out on the water to try and beat the heat.  Since I don't...I will just play with my boat stamps to try and get in a cooler frame of mind.

I used the Waves Stencil too.

1. Fold an 11" x 5 1/2" piece of Tropical Splash cardstock in half to create a 5 1/2" square card base
2. Adhere a 5 1/4" panel of Poolside cardstock to the card
3. Stencil the waves stencil on a piece of Tropical splash cardstock with regular embossing paste and allow to dry before adhering to the card
4. Stamp the boat on a piece of white cardstock and color with pencils
5. Die cut the boat out and adhere to the card
6. stamp the waves on a panel of Tropical Splash cardstock with VersaMark ink and emboss with Detail White embossing powder
7. Die cut wave and adhere to card
8. Stamp sentiment on card

Saturday Sketch #14

It's time for another Saturday Sketch challenge.
This week my friend Chaunnelle challenged me to try this sketch.

I had a bunch of paper scraps from The Stamps of Life on my desk so I decided to use them for my card.  Here's what I came up with.

I used the Sizzix Triplit Gifts dies.

The sentiment is from the tickets2stamp set.

The paper is from The Stamps of Life.

Quick and simple card made even easier because I had a fun sketch to start with.
Not sure if Chaunnelle got something made but hop on over to her blog to check it out!
