Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 58

 

Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the InLinkz button down at the end of my post to enter your card. On Thursday at 10 PM (Mountain Time), I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog. So, as long as your card is linked by 10 PM Thursday, your card will be in the drawing. Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC58 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.


As you can tell, I took some artistic liberty with my own sketch this morning - I had it in my head that I was going to use these little butterflies, and well, the squares underneath were just too large, so I opted for circles underneath the butterflies.  And small ones at that, LOL!  The card is a 6.5" square, scored in half - so the card size is 6.5" x 3.25".  The colors come from this week's Color Throwdown - olive, brown, pink, and white.  Super cute!!

I'm using InLinkz instead of Mr. Linky, so I hope it works {crossing my fingers}.  I had trouble with Mr. Linky and apparently did lose all the entries listed last week.  I'm SO sorry about that.  So I won't be listing the winner for SSSC57 since I can't get back to all of them. 

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have samples to show you today, so don't forget to stop on by to see:

Have fun!

recipe -
stamps: flight of the butterfly
paper: pretty in pink, chocolate chip, old olive cardstock, sweet pea dsp

Slightly Distracted

I've been distracted. Distracted by her.


And this little one.
 


And these little cuties.
...the kids, not the chickens.

Why all the distraction, you ask?

Because of her.

2 In 1 Thank You

Good morning!  I'm so glad to see you back here at my blog in spite of yesterday's challenge - LOL!  It looks like you are loving it!  I have another challenge card for you today - I'm trying to catch up and keep up, so this one combines Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge {Old Olive, Night of Navy, Ballet Blue, Kraft, and Whisper White}, and Sweet Stop Sketch 44.  After I saw these amazing little flowers on Laura's blog, I had to make them right away - seems like if I don't make something I drool over as soon as possible, I forget all about it.  I chalk it up to my "mom of 3" brain.

Do you think my photos look blurry?  All of a sudden my photos look blurry on my blog, but not on my computer, so I don't know what the heck is up with Blogger.  GRRR!!!   Anyone else having this problem?

Thanks for stopping by today!
Karen

recipe -
stamps: thankful accents (verve stamps)
paper: kraft, night of navy, ballet blue, whisper white cardstock, fall flowers dsp
ink: night of navy
accessories: 5 petal punch, nestabilities, playground designer buttons, embroidery thread, jumbo brads

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 57


Good morning - It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Here is the deal: make a card with this layout and use the Mr. Linky box down at the end of my post to enter your card. On Thursday at 10 PM (Mountain Time), I'll randomly select one card to feature on my blog. So, as long as your card is linked in the Mr. Linky box by 10 PM Thursday, your card will be in the drawing. Be sure to link directly to the blog post or gallery image which features your card. You may post a picture of the sketch on your blog, but please save the image to your computer first. Use the keyword SSSC57 if you plan to post your card in an online gallery.

I can hear you all groaning out there - yes, this one is a bit of a challenge, but it's all part of the fun of it, right?  I think I am very close to getting voted off the island by the design team, LOL!  Out of a great challenge comes amazing creativity!   Now, I'm not saying my card is full of amazing creativity - LOL!  I almost cheated by just cutting out a 5" x 3.75" sheet of this striped paper, but instead I cut each little pattern out to make them all the same size.  You should know that I was singing circus music as I edited this little number; maybe because of the bow-tie and giant polka dots?  haha!  Since this will obviously be a little kid's card, I think it looks cute with all the polka dots and bright colors.  The set is It's a Party, one of the very first sets I ever bought 6 years ago - wow!

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have samples to show you today, so don't forget to stop on by to see:

Have fun!
Karen

EDITED:  OK, looks like Mr. Linky is getting greedy and wanting me to pay for a subscription.  If you haven't entered yet, please leave your link in the comments.   If you have already entered your card, I can still see your links in my Mr. Linky account, so never fear, you're still in the running for Random.org.  So sorry everyone.  I was told  of a new website that is like Mr. Linky, but free, so I'll be using Inlinkz next week.  


recipe -
stamps: it's a party
paper: bashful blue, brilliant blue, whisper white cardstock, jersey shore dsp

Grateful for You

Good morning!  It has been a LONG time since I've participated in a color challenge and it was just what I needed to make a card for you today.  This week's Color Throwdown is light green, rust, and burgundy - wow!  I can't honestly say that I have never put these 3 colors together - ever - but wow, they look amazing!

I picked this little leafy flower from PTI, but then I realized I don't have any rust or burgundy buttons to go with it, so I just stayed with white.  I really like the clean look it gives.

That's it for now - please stop back by and say hello.
Karen


recipe -
stamps: thankful hearts (verve stamps), blooming button bits (papertrey ink)

Lookie What I Did!!

Good morning!!  I'm just a tad excited this morning because I got this amazing stamp in the mail yesterday!  "What stamp is THAT amazing?", you ask?  Well, let me tell you!  Here's the story:
When we were setting up the booth at CHA last month we were looking through the Baker's Dozen card samples and Melissa Sauls had this really cute stamp on the back of her cards and I didn't!  Yes, I often want what other people have, it's just a sickness really.  Anyway... when I got home I was looking for a company that would take custom images and make them into stamps - I found RubberStamps.net and the process started.  I have a little logo I made for my Etsy shop and so I wanted a variation of this to be the image for my cards and LOOK -
 
Tee Hee!!!  I Lurve It!!  See, there's my little birdie :D
The bummer of it is, well - take a look...

 
Who the heck cut the rubber out and mounted this thing???  (Oh wow, that sounded really dirty...) Needless to say, it still stamps like a dream, so I'm cool with it.  Maybe...  haha!  Yes, I'm loving it - seriously!  Can you tell?
Edited:  It was only $10 including shipping!!

Center of Attention Product Spotlight - Impressabilities

If you have hopped on over here looking for the Blog Hop(e) for Haiti, please CLICK HERE or see the post below...

I'm super excited to show you this month's Center of Attention product: Spellbinders Impressabilities!!  I absolutely love using embossing folders with my Cuttlebug, so when I had the chance to try out Impressabilities, I was stoked!

Impressabilities, by Spellbinders, are A2 size {4.25" x 5.5"} embossing templates and what is unique about them is they are made to be used in several different ways.  You can use them just as is and run it through a Cuttlebug, or Wizard and create beautiful dry embossed patterns on paper.  You can also use them to letterpress, stencil, or even cut the template and use it for embellishments.
For my card today, I used the die template as an embosser - this is the Paisley Impressabilities.  I love the deep, detailed images it created with just one pass through my Cuttlebug - it was very easy to use and fits a standard sized card.  You can see a detailed tutorial on using Impressabilities with the Wizard, here - however, I layered my Cuttlebug plates like this: starting from the bottom - A, B, 4 pieces of cardstock, embossing mat, cardstock to be embossed, Impressabilities die, B.

See how detailed the embossing is?  I love those crisp edges! 

Want some exciting news??  Taylored Expressions is now offering a 15% discount on all Impressabilities templates!  This steal of a deal is only valid February 16-17, so don't let it pass you by! 

There are more amazing ideas using Impressabilities waiting for you - please stop by and see:
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Blog Hop for Haiti

Welcome to Skipping Stones Design’s Blog Hop(e) for Haiti. If you just happened upon my blog today, you’ll want to go back to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design.  You should have come from Dawn Easton's blog.

As a company, we wanted to do something to give back to the people who have been so devastated by the Haitian Earthquake. So we thought what better way than to invite some of our favorite stampers to join us in this cause. Each card you see on the blog hop today will be auctioned on E-bay with all proceeds going to the Red Cross in support of the Haitian Relief Effort (please check the Skipping Stones Design Website for the link to the auction). 100% of the proceeds of the Ebay auction and $2.00 from every stamp set purchased from February 16 - 22 will be donated to the Red Cross. We know that we can make a difference.
When I first saw this set, Funny Bras Vol. 1, I instantly fell in love with it - the humor is so me!  I stamped the image on various papers from Stampin' Up!'s Cottage Wall dsp and paper pieced the image together.  I used white embossing powder for the sentiment and finished the card with some little buttons - and of course, lots and lots of scallops!

My next card is so vibrant and fun - so perfect for a birthday.  The set is Cupcake Cutie and sticking with my paper piecing theme, I used fun paper to make my cupcake.  I added several turquoise rhinestones along the bottom for some sparkly fun, oh la la!!! 

Thank you for stopping by and your next blog to hop to is Erin Grotegut.

How about a prize? In addition to the fabulous eye candy, we have decided to hide a prize somewhere along the hop! There will be a few pre-release sets up for grabs hidden along the blog hop.  The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! 

Thanks for following the hop today - enjoy!

Did you see the opening ceremonies of the Olympics?  I am in awe of the beauty of  British Columbia - the contrast of the green grasses against the blue sky, the crisp mountain peaks towering over the coastline, and the marvelous city skyline of Vancouver - WOW!  The blues and greens of spring are what inspired this card today - I have this little stamp that has never seen the light of ink in its entire existence, so I thought I'd give it a little love.


The image is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics and I sponged blue and green ink around the edges of the circle for grass and sky.  The flower centers have a little Diamond Glaze on them to give a little pop.

The Sweet Sunday Stampers have samples to show you today, so don't forget to stop on by to see:

Have fun!

Sweet Little One

Don't fall over from shock or anything, but I'm actually posting a challenge card on the day the challenge posted!  What???  I Know!  Taylor is celebrating 100 sketches today and I wanted to jump right into the celebration.  I haven't made a baby card in a while, so I thought I'd try and start with some pastel Tea Party papers.  I always adore little elephants on baby cards, so I grabbed Elephants In Love and just inked up the larger elephant by masking the rest of the stamp with post it notes.  After I cut this little cutie out, he looked so lonely, so I added some Tiny Twinkles and I love the effect it gives - like he's giving himself a bath in bling, LOL!
 
The sentiment is from Beary Special - I love pairing up different stamp sets, the possibilities are endless!  I used lots of Nestabilities for this card and got a little scallop crazy, haha!  The sketch called for 3 little embellies on the side, but I only had 2 little green buttons left, so I left it as it is.  

Alright - gotta get back to mom life.  Have a wonderful day!
Karen


recipe -
stamps: elephants in love, beary special
paper: certainly celery, so saffron, whisper white cardstock, tea party dsp (all SU)
ink: memento rich cocoa
accessories: nestabilities, apron lace punch, so saffron 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, sherbet designer buttons, tiny twinkles, dimensionals

Thanks for all you do


Good morning!  I have another sketch card for you, this time from The Sweet Stop: SSS42.  I'm using more paper from Sweet Pea - and of course, buttons and ribbon and Verve - oh my!  I can't help but pop these tulips over the edges of the paper and I needed a little something more on the card, so I added the 3 little buttons, although now as I look at it, the card seems a wee bit heavy on the left.  Oh well - it is what it is and I need to go to bed!  haha!

Thanks for stopping by -

Spring Blossom Mojo


Nothing brings back my mojo like a fun sketch and a favorite stamp set, and not to mention fun new paper!  The sketch is Julee's MOJO125 and I instantly fell in love with it - the rounded edge is so unique and I loved the ribbon element.  I used my favorite tree from Trendy Trees as well as some super fab paper, Sweet Pea and I just got my satin ribbon share in the mail from Nancy, so I had to use that too, yay!!!  I stamped the tree top in Pretty In Pink ink and then used Rose Red and Taken With Teal Stampin' Write markers to accent other little leaves to give it the illusion the tree is blooming.  Soooo ready for spring, it's not even funny!

That's it for now - thanks for stopping by.

stamps: trendy trees

Hello Sunshine

Good morning sunshine!  You have NO idea how excited I am to have finally finished a MOJO card on time!!  This week's sketch was difficult for me - I'm not sure why exactly, but I kept looking at it and looking at it, bound and determined to conquer this one!  I'm totally digging the color combo - Summer Sun and Cameo Coral - yes, I know it's kind of a crazy duo, but I'm needing some summer sun in my frigid winter days right now.  I think the black makes everything pop a little bit more as well.

Thanks for stopping by!  See you back soon.

These are single images you can purchase for only $6.95 each! The first 8 images offered by TE are the cutest Animals in Love from the Whimsical Wishes collection. AND a full size set of sentiments coordinates with these images and most likely, many other stamps you might already have.


    I am completely in L-O-V-E with these little turtles.  They remind me of the Slowski's - you know, from those cable commercials??  Plus, how adorable is that sentiment!?  This is quite possibly the best Valentine's card for a man I've ever made - how lucky is my man??  hahaha! The turtles are paper pieced and the image panel is sponged with So Saffron ink around the edges.


    This next sweet as can be image is another one of my favorites from the Animals In Love stamps.  Their little noses touch and make a little heart - it's the cutest ever!!  The layout of the card is from The Sweet Stop SSS41 and the papers are from the Valentine Key Ingredients kit.

    Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 1

    Good morning! It's time for another round of fantastic new stamp sets from Taylored Expressions and TE continues to grow and get better and better! We are so excited about the addition of our newest line of rubber stamps - Apple Doodle Ink. We think you'll love the fun cartoon style of ADI. We have two stamp sets to launch this line: Window Shopping and Bakery Business. You're going to have so much fun building scenes with Tena in her bakery and we promise you'll get a ton of use out of those windows with more coordinating Apple Doodle Ink sets coming in the near future!

    My first card features Tena and the new set, Bakery Business - this sentiment just cracks me up!  I think I've been telling myself "I'll go to the gym starting tomorrow" for the last 6 months! haha!   I stamped Tena in  Memento Rich Cocoa ink and then colored her with Copics and sponged the edges of the circle with Cameo Coral ink.  The little cupcake above the sentiment was so much fun to make!  I added some Liquid Applique for the frosting as well as a red rhinestone cherry - both of which are included in the Bakery Sampler this month.  The Bakery Sampler includes:
    • Kraft Bakery Bags
    • White Liquid Applique
    • Baking Charms
    • Apron Die Cut
    • Adirondack Espresso Pearls
    • Baking Chipboard
    • Kitchen Twill
    • Kaisercraft Red Rhinestones
    You can find more information about this month's Bakery Sampler as well as the fun little story behind the making of Apple Doodle Ink on Taylor's blog.
     

    My next card combines the window display from Window Shopping as well as images from Bakery Business - so much fun!!  I paper pieced the awning and popped it up with dimensional tape to give it a little 3D pop.  I can't wait to use these little window display images for invitations and birthday cards and you'll definitely want to swing by to see what the rest of the Baker's Dozen have displayed in their bakery as well!
