My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge

Ever participate in a sketch challenge? It's super fun and most challenges give away a prize to one lucky winner.  It's a great way to get some inspiration too.

This week I decided to play along with My Favorite Things Weekly Sketch Challenge 225. Wanna play along with me? The sketch is really fun and I hope it did it justice with my creation.  

All the supplies I used are from My Favorite Things:

Card Stock: Black Licorice, Sweet Tooth, Bubblegum
Stamps: LJD Hearts & Stitches, DC Happy Everything
Ink: Black Licorice
Dies: Happy Duo
Other: Princess Sequins Kit

I'd love you hear what challenges you may participate in!  Leave me a comment or drop me an e-mail with your favorite. I'll list them out in a future post.

Have a great weekend and happy stamping!

Painted Petals



I jinxed myself after that last post . . . I came down with a terrible cold over the weekend. Perhaps I should send myself that card? Lol.
 
I am hoping that you are thinking I painted the pretty flowers on front of this card? I'd love to say I did, but I didn't. There is a lovely new stamp set from Stampin' Up! called Painted Petals. It's gorgeous! You can achieve that painted look with each and every stamp in the set. I love it! For the background, I cheated a little and used the coordinating Designer Series Paper called Painted Blooms.  Did you ever buy scrapbook paper that is so pretty you don't want to use it? That is me with this paper. This paper you could frame!  The opened, but unused packet has been sitting on my desk for quite sometime. I just had to break into it.
 
All the supplies to create this card are from Stampin' Up!  If you don't know or have a demonstrator to order from, no worries!  My sidebar to your right, under Tiffany's Favorites, includes a link to my friend and demonstrator, Lisa Wertz. She would be happy to help you place an order. 
 
You are Amazingly Amazing Card Supplies from Stampin' Up!:
Stamps: Painted Petals
Designer Series Paper: Painted Blooms
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink: Crumb Cake, Wild Wasabi, Pacific Point

Happy stamping!

Get Well Soon

You can never plan for a Get Well card like you can a birthday card. If you need to throw one together fast . . . try grabbing a border die like the Memory Box Piestra Tile Craft Die, cut out design on white cardstock and layer it on a brightly colored card. Stamp your well wishes and add some sequins or enamel dots and you're done! Simple, clean, and easy.  I love that!
 
Get Well Soon Card Supplies:
Stampin Up Stamps: Sincere Salutations (retired - can be found on Etsy and Ebay)
Memory Box Die: Piestra Tile
Stampin Up Cardstock: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight
Stampin Up Ink: Basic Black
Other: Doodlebug Sprinkles

Enjoy your day and happy stamping!

Out on a Limb

 
My mother is happily retired, but you wouldn't think so with the type of schedule she keeps!  I'm totally jealous. She does manage to help me out from time to time by having us over for dinner and watching her Grandson when we need a sitter. I asked her to make my birthday dinner a few weeks ago and without hesitation she happily agreed to cook my favorite meal. I'm sending her this card just to thank her for all she's done.
 
Out on a Limb Card Supplies:
MFT Stamps & Dies: Out on a Limb
Stampin Up Cardstock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake
Stampin Up Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Wild Wasabi
 
When I finished this card, I thought it would make a good teacher card too!  We are anxiously waiting for this school year to come to an end. It's been a rough one! Warm weather, sunshine, and no homework sounds really great right now!  
 
Have a great day and happy stamping!
