Ismaki sketch challenge

Today i tried another new challenge. The Ismaki Sketch challenge. I just received my new paper the Emporium Creative Basics paper pack from Ctmh, so i just had to use it. I also inked up my Sugar Nellie stamp for the first time also. I get a little intimidated by them with all the coloring so they stay uninked for awhile till i feel brave enough to color them. lol -but i think it came out ok. I think the paper and the image go pretty well together. Well thanks for taking a look and i hope you have a GREAT day!!! :0)

Ms. Gardener

Hello There! Here is another card i made using another Ms. set from CTMH. This one is from the Ms. Gardener set. This is personally my favorite of all the Ms. sets. The dp i used is from the Emporium paper packet also from Ctmh. I really really like this paper. This card was inspired by one i saw while visiting my friends in blogland. While stopping by Becky's blog Inking Idaho, i saw this cute card, you can see Becky's card here, and best of all it came with dimensions!! I love when that happens. I just flipped the card on it's side to fit my image. The scallop circle with the flower holds the panel closed. I used the flower in the pot stamp so it would look like she was getting ready to water it. I think that worked out well don't you? Well that's it for today. Thanks so much for visiting. I hope you have a Great Day!! :0)

Amy R's Friday Sketcher #50

Hi there! My card today was made for Amy R's Friday Sketcher #50. I had so much fun with this sketch especially since i got to use my Spa Girls stamp from DeNami Design. I love this stamp but hardly use it because i don't have any sentiments for it, until i came across this one by none other than C.C. Designs My Rubber Ducky set. I used some dp that i got at my LSS and embossed my brown and tan mats under my image with D'vine Swirls and Swiss Dots embossing folders. I added some Ranger Crystal Glitter to the bubbles in the girls pedicure tubs for sparkle. I need my sparkle. lol. and i matted my sentiment with punches from SU! Well i hope you all get a chance to Relax & Unwind sometime soon!! :) Thanks for visiting, you know i love it when you do. :0)

I used Little Penguins digi images, the presents are from the SugarPlums Christmas scene set and the sentiment is from the Sugarplums Sentiments set. My Dp is from CTMH from long ago. i used my Happy Birthday embossing folder for the background. Scallop and circle nestabilities were used to mat my image and to mat my sentiment i used SU! word window punch and Die Label Trio nestabilities. I glittered my balloons and ribbon on the presents and the stomach on my little penguin for lots of sparkle. I like how this came out (my camera skills can use some work) i think its a fun card for a child's birthday. I hope you enjoy it and thanks so much for visiting. :0)

AmyR's Friday sketch #49

Good Morning! Here is my card for AmyR's Friday sketch # 49. I used my Perfectly Clear Stamps by Stampendous for this card. I've had these like forever and i think i've only used one stamp out of the set and the rest have never been inked. All the cardstock and dp are scraps i found in my scrap drawer and the flowers are from an old SU! punch. I glittered the flower from the pot and in the sentiment in red glitter by martha stewart, looks so much better IRL. I hope you enjoy and thanks for visiting!! :0)

Treat Box

Hi there! hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Now i know valentines day has passed, but i wanted to show the little treat baskets i made for my best friends daughters. Yikes! sorry about the outlet in the back i had to take the picture quickly since they were on their way out the door. I got the idea from kitty Frankens Circles nestabilities purses tutorial on the scor pal website. Instead of ribbon handles i just used a scrap piece of cardstock and adhered it to the sides of the box with brads. The stamp sets i used were All My Love from CTMH and C.C.Designs Gingersnaps Hey Cupid set. These are very simple to make yet sooo cute, especially if you need a quick on the go little giftie for any occasion. Well thats it for today, hope you all have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!! :0)

ATS DT Challenge #35/ Valentine Treats-YUM!!

Hello Again! This weeks DT challenge at ATS was to dress up your valentine treats. This was particularly fun for me because #1 i love to make 3D gifts and #2 I got to use CANDY!! now i must confess i didn't think this up myself, i was inspired to make this treat holder after i saw the one on Andrea Walfords Valentines Treat holder video, only she uses three cute little bottles but unfortunately i don't own any, so i thought well thats that then i remembered i had some round containers from ATS and went to work on changing the dimensions to fit those containers and here is the outcome. For this candy tote i used C.C. Designs Angels Everywhere Digi Images. the sentiment is from the Gingersnaps set Hey Cupid. The I (heart) chocolate sentiment inside the tote is from the Itzie Inkies set Kisses and Hugs. I added Ranger crystal glitter to the angels wings for lots of sparkle and Martha Stewart glitter to her bow and dress. I hope you enjoy it, i just fell in love with it (toot my own horn) and already have different themes for this template. I will post my dimensions for it later today, tomorrow morning for sure. so please check back again if you would like those. Thanks so much for visiting!!! :0)

Hello again, ok the measurements i used for this tote is:

2pcs. c.s. - 4.25x10.5
score both pcs at 2", 7.75",8.75"

for the bellyband
9 x 2
score at .5", 2.5", 6.5", 8.5"

Andrea Walford has a video on how to fold and put together this tote if you would like to watch it, it can be found here.

Thanks again for stopping by! :)

Hi There, for today's post i have a card done for Lauren Meader's Mytimess22 sketch challenge. I have a couple of baby showers i'm going to this month, so instead of trying to figure out a shower card i decided to use a couple of sketch challenges. For this card i decided to use the stamp set Ms. on the Go from Ctmh. Now for all you Lauren Meader fans you may have noticed i made a sidewalk. yes, its from lauren's tutorial. Now i don't have copics so i used colored pencils and its also my first sidewalk so its nowhere close to being as awesome as Lauren's but i think it works. Well, i hope you all have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting. Till tomorrow! :0)

YaY! I got my sketch challenge done for AmyR's Friday sketch #47. I tried to get it done yesterday and i hated every single thing i tried to make. I hate when that happens. so instead of cutting up more paper, i just put everything away and gave it another try today. I really like this card so much better. Now for this sketch i turned it onto its side to accomodate for the fact that i had already cut my happy birthday pattern paper. For my card i used the Happy Birthday paper from Reminisce. The cupcake stamp is from the Good Times set and the sentiment is from the Happy Birthday set, both from Ctmh. Now the glittered ric rac is pretty cool. The ric rac is like one big piece of red line tape. you put it on your project and add glitter and there is a whole lot of sparkle going on! I ordered mine from Jody Morrow at Confessions of a Ribbon Addict (her sticky stuff sale) its so much fun. Well Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look. I hope you have a wonderful day!
