Thursday Sketch # 2

Sorry, I forgot to post a sketch yesterday. I've been working on the Sheetrock in my living room. Ugh, what a job! I had no idea this would be so much work, otherwise I probably wouldn't have even started. My entire house (me included) is covered in Sheetrock dust from me sanding. It is horrible. I have a towel under the door to my stampin' room so my stuff in here doesn't get covered too, lol. I'm hoping to be done and painting tonight though. It's gonna be Cranberry Crisp (from last years In Colors).

Well anyway, here is the sketch. I haven't made a sample for it yet, but get that done as soon as I get a chance. =)

Thursday Sketch #1

Well, I've always wanted to try to make a sketch, so I finally decided to give it a try. Surprisingly enough, I found it much easier to make a sketch first then make the card. I always though it would be harder, but I actually enjoyed it. I used paint, and just kept putting up squares and rectangles until I liked the result. So anyway, I made about 12 of them last night, so I'll be posting these for at least 12 weeks =), but hopefully I'll be able to come up with more between now and then, lol. So here is number one. I'd love to see what you do with the sketch if you'd like to share. Just leave a comment on this post =). Here is the sample that I came up with last night. I just got some new stuff yesterday, so I was dying to use it. I've been seeing awesome stuff made with this set, so I had to have it =). I think I may have tried to cram too many layers into this little card, but I'm pretty happy with it anyway =).
This card measures 4.25 X4.25".
-Stamps-Season Of Joy
-Ink-Old Olive, Real Red
-Paper-Real Red, Old Olive, River Rock, and Chocolate Chip cardstock and Dashing DSP.
-Accessories-Pewter Hodgepodge hardware, Stampin' Write Markers, Real Red grosgrain ribbon and Stampin Sponges.

Fabulous Sketch Challenge

This card was for SCS sketch challenge #139 on SCS. I this this may just be my favorite sketch challenge yet. I'm probably going to do this one again with different colors/stamps. =)-Stamps-Fabulous Flowers, It's All Good and Polka dots & Paisley
-Ink-Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate and So Saffron
-Paper-Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip cardstock. Rose Red and So Saffron prints DSP.
-Accessories-Pewter hodgepodge hardware, Pomegranate double stitched ribbon, blender pen (filled with future floor wax) and pearl-ex powder.
*In case you haven't heard of this, you can put future floor wax in a blender pen and use it to paint with pearl ex powder. Just dip the end of the blender pen into the lid of the pearl ex. I'm not sure how well it shows up in the picture, but I used this around the edges of the flower to give it a little sparkle.

Garden Whimsy & Fabulous Flowers

I made this one last week, I just forgot to put it on here. This was sketch Challenge #126 on SCS. I love that Pomegranate is so dark. It's so easy to stamp on top of other colors =). Rose Red used to be my absolute favorite color, but now that we have pomegranate it kinda looks washed out to me. I haven't touched it since, aside from using the DSP. The Scallop circle was done using the corner round. You can see my tutorial HERE. The circle is the same size as the tutorial.
-Stamps-Garden Whimsy & Fabulous Flowers
-Ink-Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava & Soft Sky.
-Paper-Rose Red prints DSP, and Purely Pomegranate, Groovy Guava & Soft Sky cardstock.
-Accessories-Pomegranate double stitched ribbon and corner rounder punch.
