Saturday Sketch Skip

Happy Saturday!  It's time for another UDI Sketch Challenge.  Here is the sketch from Carol.  I left it just the way she drew it today.  :)






















As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew what I wanted to do.  I started with a Peach Parfait card base.   The sentiment is from Hope Happens and is stamped in Early Espresso.  The image layer is Early Espresso and a piece of the Level 1 Hostess DSP pack. I used lots of punches for the rest of the card...the 2 1/2" Circle punch, the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch, the Owl punch, the Two-Step Bird punch, and one of the punches from the Bitty Punch pack. 

Let me know what you think, and then skip on over to Leonie's blog to see what she did with the sketch.  

Enjoy your weekend!

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Hope Happens. Ink- Early Espresso.  Paper- Whisper White, Early Espresso, Peach Parfait, Level 1 Hostess DSP pack.  Accessories- 2 1/2" Circle punch, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch, Owl punch, Two-Step Bird punch, Bitty Punch pack.

Big Shot Valentine's Day

Good Monday morning!  Today's post is probably the card we'll be making at my Super Sale-A-Bration party on Super Bowl Sunday.  I still have to decide on a treat item.  ;)


The card base is Real Red and was run through the Big Shot in the Framed Tulips embossing folder.  The top portion of the Whisper White piece was run through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder.  The Real Red heart is the Scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslit.  A scrap piece of Whisper White was stamped with the heart from Always and punched with the Full Heart punch. The completed heart image was adhered to the card base with dimensionals.   The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and was punched with the Word Window punch.  A piece of Real Red 1/4" grosgrain was wrapped around the front of the card just under the embossing.  I made a bow and used a Black Glimmer brad as the center.  It was added to the ribbon strip with mini glue dots.  I love the finished card!   :) 

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Always, Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Ink- Jet Black Stazon.  Paper- Whisper White, Real Red.  Accessories-  Big Shot, Framed Tulips and Perfect Polka Dots embossing folders, Scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslit, Full Heart punch, Word Window punch, Glimmer brad, Real Red 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, mini glue dots, dimensionals.

UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge 119

Good Saturday morning!  It's time for another sketch challenge on the UDI blog.  Here's the sketch for today. 

I used Hostess Level 1 goodies for my card today.  The stamp set is Silhouette Sentiments and the DSP is the In Color Patterns pack. The strip down the middle is the back side of the main piece.  I added Rhinestone pearls to the 4 corners of the image panel for some bling and adhered it to the card base with dimensionals.
Head on over to Leonie's blog today to see what she came up with for you.  Everyone is linked, so you'll be able to skip all around the team. Head back to the UDI blog if there are any broken links.

Occasions Mini Team Swap

Good Morning!  Today I'm sharing my card for an Occasions Mini Catalog swap I participated in with some of my SU! team.  The only set I have (so far LOL) is Button, Button which I got for FREE for participating in the SU! Book-a-thon.  (SU! is a fabulous company!  Want to join my team?  Just click here!)  After seeing everyone's swap cards, I have a nice list to order when SAB begins on the 25th.  ;)


I started my card with a Crumb Cake card base which I ran through the Big Shot in the Framed Tulips embossing folder.  I stamped the button with tulips on it in Crumb Cake and Real Red on Whisper White.  I then added a smaller button stamped in Crumb Cake.  The sentiment is from Thank You Kindly and was stamped in Real Red.  Then I used my Color Spritzer Tool and my Crumb Cake marker to get rid of all the white space.   That piece was layered on a piece of Real Red and adhered to the card base.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- Thank You Kindly & Button, Button. Ink- Crumb Cake, Real Red.  Paper- Crumb Cake, Real Red, Whisper White.  Accessories-  Big Shot, Framed Tulips embossing folder, Color Spritzer tool.

UDI Saturday Sketch Challenge 118

WooHoo!!! I stamped!!!  :)  I rejoined the Utah Divas International Sketch Challenge team, so I stamped last night!  It was so much fun.  I need to stamp some more, but I have a busy day planned already.  

Here is the sketch from Carol.  I left off the 3 top embellishments, but stuck to the sketch.  :)   The card base is Crumb Cake.  The next layer is Pretty in Pink followed by a piece of Whisper White that was run through the Big Shot in the Elegant Bouquet embossing folder.  A piece of Pretty in Pink was run through the Big Shot on the Tasteful Trim die for the scalloped piece.  A piece of Whisper White and some Pretty in Pink taffeta ribbon top the scalloped piece.  I sponged the card base and the embossed areas with Pretty in Pink and added Rhinestone pearls to the flower centers.  I am really pleased with this one.  :)






















Leonie is the next stop on your journey.  Here is a link back to the original post in case any of the links are broken.

Enjoy your day!  I'll see you back here soon!

Supplies(all SU!):  Stamps- none.  Ink- Pretty in Pink.  Paper- Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White.  Accessories-  Big Shot, Elegant Bouquet embossing folder, Tasteful Trim die, Pretty in Pink taffeta, Rhinestone pearls, sponge.

Happy New Year!

Happy 2011!  Is it just me or does it seem like just yesterday everyone was worrying about Y2K?  ;)   I hope everyone had a safe, wonderful time ringing in the new year!  We stayed home and watched the ball drop on television and toasted the new year with sparkling grape juice.  

Here's to a wonderful new year!
