This week’s sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers was a good one. I decided to use SU Sweet Pea designer paper to coordinate the two background pieces. The owl is from Inkadinkado. Although I am not fond of real birds (OK, some may call it irrational phobia; I call it a healthy fear of completely unpredictable creatures), I LOVE bird stamps. I’ve had this set for years and especially like the faces on these guys. I tried one of my new Lawn Fawn Stitched Labels die for the sentiment.
For this card, I used a pretty dogwood stamp that was given to me by a friend. It’s bare rubber, unmounted, so have no idea where she found it or who made it! This card uses the colors from Paper Players challenge 257
and Freshly Made Sketches sketch 199.
I used Stampin’ Up card stock in Bermuda Bay and Old Olive. Ink is StazOn Jet Black, and the sentiment and Kraft paper is Papertrey Ink.
I went with some oldie but goodie colors and stamps – I made this card with Papertrey Ink stamps from the Beautiful Blooms set. I used Stampin’ Up! ink and paper in Groovy Guava, Baja Breeze, Wild Wasabi, and craft
Ooh, I had fun with this one. Here’s my card for challenge #3 from PTI Stamp-a-faire. I know it’s no where near Halloween, but I thought making a full moon out of it was a cool way to work that punched hole into the card. Had a hard time getting a good picture of it, but it looks pretty neat in person. CS is SU very vanilla and perfect plum. Ink is black Staz-on, yellow cat’s eye, and Ranger vintage photo distress. The stamps are from PTI Spooky Sweets II.
Here is my card for the first PTI Stamp-a-faire challenge; to use a patterned strip along with a decorative element. I used PTI supplies in spring moss, spring rain, and berry sorbet; as well as DCWV patterned paper. The flower is from the Beautiful Blooms set, and the sentiment is from Vintage Picnic.
I just got the Elegant Soiree paper pack, had no idea it was fixing to retire. Oh well, I’m so behind the curve 🙂 Here is a card I made for CPS Sketch 221.
Everything is Stampin’ Up, except the sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink set Floral Fusion.
My cousin is getting married this weekend, and he and his fiance are very outdoorsy/nontraditional kind of people. I think the colors and style are a good match for them. I used the sketch for April’s Sketch for You to Try. The stamps, paper, and ribbon are all Stampin’ Up. The embellishments at the bottom are K & Co.
