Friday Sketchers 87

Here's my card for this week's sketch at Friday Sketchers - Sketch 87.  I also used a tutorial from Mercy Kerin to make the flower.  It worked really great!  I guess this will be a hand delivered's pretty thick now!  For stamps I used SU's Well Scripted and Vintage Vogue.  I'm really getting my money's worth on these stamp sets!

2 Sketches 4 You - Sketch 44

Here's a card I did for this week's challenge at 2 Sketches 4 You - Sketch 44.  I used a new Anya stamp that I got with my Christmas gift certificate!  I pulled some Basic Grey patterned paper out of my stash and used the new Beautiful Wings embosslit from SU. 

Stampin Connection Featured Stamper Challenge

Here's a card I made for the first Featured Stamper Challenge on Stampin Connection - SCFC1.  Stampin Connection is Stampin Up!'s new demo only site.  I hope to do more challenges from Stampin Connection in the future.  For this card I used the clear mount set Well Scripted and Sweet Pea DSP.  I love this color combo!

Day 2 of the CHA Relay and Mercy's Sketch MTSC57

Here's my card for the next stop on the Relay Contest at The Greeting Farm.  This new digi is called Charlotte.  I colored her with my Copics and used some Sweet Pea DSP.  The sketch is from Mercy Kerin's blog challenge - MTSC57.  I have to go to NYC for the next couple days so I guess I won't get to complete the relay...bummer!  I'm trying to figure out if I can put together a whole card and just add the digi image in the hotel room.  Hmmm....maybe I can if I can find a way to get it printed!

Mer Ian Friday Sketchers #86

Here's a quick card I put together using the Sketch #86 from the Friday Sketchers blog.  This layout is really versatile.  I used a new digi stamp from The Greeting Farm called Mer Ian.  The Greeting Farm is having a blog relay this week so this digi was free.  I colored Ian with Copics and used the new SU DSP Sweet Pea.

Top Note Brag Book

Here's a cute project I put together for an upcoming workshop.  My hostess is a scrapbooker who recently purchased a Big Shot so I made a little brag book using the Top Note die and some chipboard.  The great thing about the steel ruled Sizzix dies is that you can cut all sorts of different materials, chipboard is just one of them.  I also used the new Sweet Pea stitched felt embellishments from the Occasions Mini.

More Occasions Mini Fun - MOJO122

Here's my card for this week's MOJO Monday Sketch - MOJO122.  I used all Clear Mount SU stamps - Well Scripted, Vintage Vogue and Tiny Tags.  I also used the Sweet Pea DSP.  The new DSP is just sooo yummy.  Lots of great patterns and color choices all in one pad!  Too bad I don't know anyone getting married anytime soon!!  I guess I'll just save this one for future

Good Neighbors SAB Set

Here's a quick card I put together using the Sale-a-Bration set Good Neighbors.  I got this set in the new Clear Mount option and I really like it.  For this kind of two step stamping I usually pull out my Stamp-a-ma-jig.  With the new Clear Mounts I didn't need it!  I also used some of the new Sweet Pea stitched felt embellisments and Sweet Pea DSP.  I love all the new goodies in the Occasions Mini!!

New Border and Corner Punches

I spent some time playing around with Stampin Up!'s new corner and border punches.  On this card I used the new Scallop Trim punches.  It takes a little practice to figure out how to go all the way around but once you do the result is very cool!  I also used the new Embosslit Beautiful Wings.  No stamping on this card, just layers and die cuts.

Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge - MTSC56

Here's another card with some SAB and Occasions goodies.  I used the SAB set Whimsical Words and the new Embosslit Beautiful Wings.  I'm not usually a butterfly fan but I really like the new die!  I picked some more spring colors from the Pawsitively Prints DSP.  I must have spring  All my cards lately are very "spring inspired"!  I used this week's sketch challenge from Mercy Kerin's blog - MTSC56

Occasions Mini and Sale-a-Bration Goodies!

I spent most of the weekend playing with my Occasions and SAB goodies.  With the temperatures so cold it was the perfect weekend for it!!  I'm loving all my new stamps and papers.  The new clear mount stamps are awesome!  Here's the first card I made with my new set Vintage Vogue.  I played along with the sketch challenge on the Paper Pal Arts blog - PPA24.  This set isn't my usual style but I like it's versatility.

Mojo Monday Sketch - MOJO120

Here's my card for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch - MOJO120.  I used the Stampin Up! set On Your Birthday for this card.  I pulled out my markers and colored the stamp some nice springy colors.  Spring is still a long ways off but at least my card cheers me up!

More Peaceful Wishes

Here's a card I did a few weeks ago.  This was a Mojo Monday sketch that I didn't get posted in time.  Oh well....the card is still nice so I thought I'd post it anyhow.  I used an old Stampin Up! set called Peaceful Wishes and some of last year's DSP.  I really liked last year's Christmas paper...better than this year actually.  I've pretty much used it all up.  I think I've only got a few little scraps left.  That's ok...on to the spring papers!!  My Occasions mini order should be here by the end of the week!!

I've had this stamp for awhile but haven't had a chance to use it yet.  I was just too busy with Christmas cards!!  This is Superstar Anya from The Greeting Farm.  I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch - MOJO119.  I colored Anya with Copic markers and used a couple Nesties too.  Fun sketch!
