Dashing By

It was a busy weekend with a road trip to Denali National Park but this afternoon I managed to squeeze in some time to play along with the current sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches!


I've had this Pure Innocence image colored and sitting on my desk for a while now and really needed to figure out what to do with it. When I saw the FMS sketch I thought it would be the perfect layout for this image!




I used  MFT dies to cut my squares out of some retired SU DSP and then I popped my image up over the squares, pointed a tad down so it looked like she had some forward motion. Then I took my sentiment and stamped it underneath the bottom square. To finish the card off I took some of the tree DSP (middle square) and put a strip of that across the bottom inside of the card. Easy peasy!

There is still a bit of time to play along with the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge, they close it at noon PST on Mondays! 

Make the Holidays Bright

It's Sunday and you know what that means, another challenge over at the Sunday Stamps blog! This time it's my turn to bring you a fun and easy sketch to work with.




For my card I decided to use the brand new Christmas Pure Innocence image released by MFT. I just adore the Pure Innocence stamp line and this latest addition is just too cute, I love it! I colored the image with copic markers and then used some retired SU DSP for my background. The sentiment was stamped on a banner and then popped up for some added dimension.

So Thankful

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a great week. I was able to go back to work finally and it felt so good to be back at the school. 

Today we have a brand new challenge over at the Sunday Stamps blog and this time we have a fun color challenge. I went ahead and used the photo for my inspiration, coloring up a fun sunflower digital stamp from Power Poppy. I used some retired SU DSP for my background paper.




The layout for my card comes from the current sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.

Here for You

I'm on a forced 10 day staycation so it's the perfect time to play along with some challenges! For today's card I am playing along with the fun sketch challenge over at The Paper Players.



One of my coworkers lost her brother the other day so I was asked to make a card that everyone could sign and give to her. I decided to use the SU set Color and Contour. I pulled out the SU DSP Pattern Party and decided to make Pool Party my dominant color with some yellow tossed in and just a tad of green.



Thanks for stopping by!

Time for You

Happy Sunday! It's time for a new challenge over at the Sunday Stamps blog and this week we have a fun sketch from Stef!




For my card I used a set from the SU winter mini catalog called Reflected in Nature. As soon as I saw this set I had to have it, it is so me!




I went with a black and white theme, using DSP from the Sale-A-Bration catalog called Beautifully Penned. I just thought this paper was perfect for a peaceful look on my card. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and then popped it up with dimensionals against the DSP.

Make sure you head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT came up with and then play along with us, we'd love to see what you do with this sketch!

Bewitchingly Cute

It's time for a new challenge over at the Sunday Stamps blog and this week we have a great color combo for everyone to work with!



As soon as I saw these colors I immediately thought of Halloween . Maybe it's because fall is quickly approaching here in Alaska or maybe it's just because I'm ready for Halloween but either way that's what I went with for my card! I used the orange, purple and green colors from the graphic.

I used the set 'Boo Crew' from MFT and used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for the layout. I haven't played along with them in ages so it was nice to be able to join in on their challenge too! It took me a bit to decide how I wanted to do the background but I finally decided on the embossed spiderweb background using a SU folder.





Make sure to head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us, we'd love to see how you use these colors!

Friends Like You

Hello friends! It's been a while since I posted, I know. Life and work has gotten in the way of my creative time but I'm trying to change that!

Today a brand new challenge starts over at the Sunday Stamps blog and it's a fun sketch challenge from Melissa!




As soon as I saw the sketch I knew I wanted to use a new set from SU that is coming out in the July-Dec. Mini Catalog. This image is from a set called Joyful Life and I just love this bear and his bunny friend on a bike ride. I smile every time I look at it!




My colors for the image came from the DSP I used, Pattern Party. This DSP is part of the Hostess Rewards in the annual SU catalog and is well worth it, the patterns are so fun!

Make sure you head over to the rest of the DT blogs to see what they created and then play along with the sketch yourself, we'd love to see how everyone interprets it!
