Hello Fall! Friday Sketch Challenge

Happy Halloween!

Are you all ready for the trick or treaters? I will be later today... after I get the candy!! :) I am usually ahead of the game and have it all ready by yesterday, but I just didn't worry about it.  So, off to the store (or Costco) today.  I live in a large neighborhood, so I am expecting quite a crowd. 

But enough of that! It's another Friday Sketch Challenge for you and it is brought to you by Gea.  You still have another week to play along, so be sure to link up for your chance to win!

 This little guy comes from Gerda Steiner Designs.  Oh my! You must check it out.. she has some absolutely darling images.  The sketch to follow by Gea is:
For the image, I used my Copics to color and pretty much followed the sketch.  I used some patterned paper from my scrap stash and made this a smaller long card.  I like to make random size cards here and there.  No rhyme or reason... just whatever looks good.  Strange, isn't it? :) I finished the card with some rhinestones and fun vine ribbon which I highlighted with some twine, a button, and a few leaves cut out from MFT's dienamics of falling leaves. 

We hope you play along a look forward to your creation! Thanks for popping in!

Merry Fishmas!

Happy hump day!

I had an opportunity to play with The Cat's Pajamas Slider die set to make this fun interactive Christmas card for my father in law using the Best Fishes set.  I think this set is so much fun and great for the fisherman in your life.  The sentiment is perfect and I can't wait to send it to him. 

As you can see, I fussy cut the fish away from the image to create as if he is catching it.  Here is when it is pulled up:

I started with a heavy weight cardstock base and some patterned paper from Lawn Fawn's Snowy Day collection.  I stamped the image on another piece of cardstock to be cut out and paper pieced his scarf with some coordinating patterned paper.  The card was finished with some bling, button, twine, and some box pleated ribbon.  For some additional sparkly, I colored the fish with some Wink of Stella in clear.

This turned out better than I thought it might, so I have to say I am pleased.  Things in my head don't necessarily play out well on paper. :)  Thanks so much for popping in and have a great Wednesday!

Birthday Girl - Party Time Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone!
It's time for another Party Time Tuesday Challenge and the announcement of last weeks winner!  Head on over to the blog to see if you may be the next winner of a Really Reasonably Ribbon gift certificate!
My card is one using a super cute Saturated Canary image called Ellie's Birthday colored in with Copics.

Once colored, I fussy cut her out and popped her up on my embossed layered.  The patterned paper is some from Amy Tangerine and the embossing folder is one from Lifestyle Crafts.  I used a sentiment from YNS Handwritten Sentiments bannered off to the side and popped up.  The card was finished with some box pleated ribbon, paper flower, twine, and some rhinestones.

I really liked how she turned out and perfect for a little girl's birthday! Thanks so much for popping in!

Acheivement Unlocked - Your Next Stamp

Hello everyone!

 It's another Friday Fun Project at Your Next Stamp. I decided to take a turn from the holidays and do something fun that reminds me of my boys.  Or probably most boys for that matter. :)


Using the current challenge sketch, I used Video Game Ethan paired with Echo Parks' collection of That's My Boy patterned paper. I colored the image with Copics while the banners and main image were popped up. Some metal self adhesive dots finished the look.

If you haven't seen or checked out YNS newest release, you must! Especially while they are still on sale! There are some fun and whimsical holiday stamps that are sure to please all.  And don't forget to play along and link up your fabulous creation in the current YNS challenge!

Thanks for popping in today and leaving your kind comments!

Your Next Stamp - After Party Release

Hey everyone!

Have you checked out the NEW Your Next Stamp website? It's fabulous and while you are there, check out the blog to see more fun projects made by the DT with this new release and a chance to win a stamp set of your choice!

For this card, I made it an easel card using the set Waddles.  This set is just too cute.  Using a large die from one of MFT's Stax, I embossed the cs and used my craft knife to just cut where I wanted the pop up.  I then used my score board to score the ends to be folded.  The patterned paper is from Basic Grey 25th and Pine collection and the card was finished with some ribbon, twine, and button.  The inside is finished with plenty of room to write a personal message.

Thanks for stopping by this rainy day, (here it is at least!) and don't forget to head to the YNS blog!
