CC&S #212

Hello, I'm here with another fun sketch challenge for CC&S. I wanted to make a fun floral card when I saw this sketch. I love this SSS stamp, I worked perfectly for this sketch. I used distress inks in picked raspberry, worn lipstick , spun sugar, and mowed lawn to watercolor the flowers and leaves. I stamped a tone on tone word background, but it hasn't really photographed well. I hope you will join us for this challenge.

I used the mondo hydrangea stamp /die and the hello sentiment from Essentials by Ellen. I die cut the sentiment multiple times and layered it . I really love this stamp, I've made several cards with it already. I hope to buy a few more of the floral stamps/dies soon. Thanks for stopping by, see you soon.

Sending you lots of love

Hello, I am trying to sneak in a little crafty time. Who am I kidding? It's been hours , I even managed to get hubby to make dinner and kids to do the dishes. I recently purchased this fabulous floral stamp from a de-stash... I had not heard of The Ton ....I was living under a rock.... Boy was I missing out. I promptly checked out their site and made a wishlist , then I found the challenge.. I am very limited on supplies as this floral set is all I have right now. Thanks for stopping by, you will see me again .

I like the challenge oftrying to find a way to make it Christmasy . I watercolored my striped background using hickory smoke distress ink, and the die cut sentiment is from SSS. I hope you will play along with us.

CC&S #210

Hello, I'm popping in to share my DT card for CC&S 's  sketch challenge . I have been trying to find some creative use for all my old bits and pieces of patterned paper recently, this sketch helped with that. I punched out the butterflies from a few small pieces I've had forever, I am going to duplicate this card with a thank you sentiment and mass produce a few, hopefully I will put a good sized dent in the pile. I hope you play along with us and see what you can create using this sketch.

CC&S #209

Hello , Glad you stopped by. I'm sharing my card for challenge #209... I thought Valentine's day when I saw these gorgeous colors didn't you? I used a SU embossing folder to add interest to the background without adding color. I'm trying to use more white background, it's still difficult since I love colored card bases. But I need to step out of the comfort zone a bit. I hope you will play along, can't wait to see what you come up with. See you soon.
