Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge - 162

I've missed a few of the challenges, but I was able to play today! I love the colors I used in this. I've realized I've been saying that a lot since the color renovation - every time I use a color old or new it becomes my new favorite!

So here's the sketch for this week:

And my creation:

I used Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, and Cherry Cobbler for the colors. I really wish I had a Cherry Cobbler button to go in the middle of the thread, but I haven't ordered them... YET!

One Sheet Wonder

It's almost my mom's birthday so for a gift for her I made a set of cards. One sheet wonders are great for making a set of cards. I found a template on Splitcoast Stampers that makes it easy to create unique cards in no time! For a OSW, start by randomly stamping images on a neutral sheet. I used Whisper White and stamped images from the Cottage Garden stamp set (my new favorite set!) in Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, and Wild Wasabi ink. The template shows you how to make your cuts on the neutral, as well as 3 sheets of colored cardstock. I used Wild Wasabi, Tangerine Tango, and Daffodil Delight. These 3 sheets give you the layers for your cards. I used a sheet of Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, and Garden Green for the card bases. Since this is a gift, I made an assortment of tags to be attached later with the greetings - Birthday Wishes, Thanks so Much, Thinking of You, and Get Well Soon. I also added some butterflies cut from the Beautiful Wings embosslit.

The card I made as her birthday card uses the Sunny Garden designer paper. I LOVE this paper and stamp set! Enjoy!

It's been a while!

It has been a while since I've posted, but that doesn't mean I haven't been busy stamping! There's been a lot going on - camping with the hubby, puppy sick, relatives visiting, puppy sick (AGAIN!), and some stamping.

Here are a few random cards I've worked on. Hope you enjoy them. If you need recipe information, let me know and I'll get right on it!
