My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch 291

Hi everyone!  I believe this might be my first offical My Favorite Things sketch challenge.  I am still all new to this and trying various different sketches to see how all this works out!

Here is the sketch from My Favorite Things:

And here is my take.  I used the My Favorite Things Celebrate with Cake stamps set along with the My Favorite Things Pretty Pink Posh sequins mix in this shaker card.  I hope you enjoy!

Stamp Ink Paper Sketch Challenge #58

Hello everyone!  Welcome back to my blog.  I have taken a break from crafting because I have been busy this summer. Going on vacations, having friends visit and just doing some home repairs takes a lot out of my crafting time.  The highlight was seeing Adele on concert for the first time ever.  There are no words to say how amazing she was and is!

Thankfully I was able to sit down this week and make a few cards.

Here is the sketch from Stamp Ink Paper:

And here is my take on the sketch.  I decided to go horizontal instead of vertical with this one.  I hope you enjoy and please let me know your thoughts!

Mojo Monday Sketch 458

Hello everyone! Glad to see you back here. It has been a really busy summer so far.  I went on vacation to California for a week and then came back.  A week later my good friend from Florida came to visit me.  July has been really busy, but I think it is going to start settling down now.

Since I had the time I decided to pay along with the Mojo Monday Sketch this week.  Here is the sketch idea:

And here is my take of the sketch.  The only thing different is that I rotated the sketch one turn to the left instead.

I used the some masculine paper I had in my stash and the sentiment is from the Stamp of Approval boxset from Catherine Pooler.

I used some craft paper and Memento Cocoa ink for the sentiment.

I’m A Sucker For You

It has been a while since I last posted.  The summer is always busy for me.  Since living in Chicago, I have had to learn to enjoy the three months of summer before the nine months of misery that we endure that we call winter.

I received the My Monthly Hero kit this last week.  I played around with the kit and came up with this card.  I love the nautical theme of the kit.  I like how the black and white striped paper contrasts with the blue splatter water coloring on the card base.  I stamped the octopus using some Altenew inks.  They make it easy because the colors are already together for a layered stamp.  Takes out all the guess work.

Enjoy this card!
