A Beautiful Sketch

This is for today's sketch challenge on SCS. I used A Beautiful Thing stamp set from SU, cs colors are Tempting Turquoise, Pacific Point, Ruby Red and Very Vanilla. Inks used were Whisper White craft, Baja Breeze, Cameo Coral, and Pacific Point classic. The flower was made using the scallop circle punch from SU: I punched two circles from Ruby Red and one from Very Vanilla, cut from the outside edges toward the center to create "petals", then spritzed with water before layering and scrunching to form the flower. The flower center is a blue Square Ice brad. The edges of the Very Vanilla cs are punched using the Eyelet border punch from SU. TFL!

Roger's Birthday Card

This is for the Ways to Use It Challenge WT213 - Using Labels on SCS. The diamond pattern background is an Avery 3x5 label, run through the Big Shot with the Harlequin texture plate. I inked the plate with Pacific Point before running the label through, then I sponged Creamy Caramel onto the raised portion of the label afterwards. The sailboat image is stamped with Versamark on Night of Navy paper, then colored with Pearl-Ex, then I used the distressing tool on the edges of the cs. The sailboat is from Winds of Grace (retired SU). The cord is hemp, the brads are from the Vintage Brads collection, and the card base is Creamy Caramel cs.

Ahoy, There Be Treasure!

This is a birthday card for one of the little guys that I babysit. He's having a pirate themed party, so I thought Ahoy Matey (retired Stampin' Up!) would be appropriate!

Watch out...the Easter Monkey is coming!!!

A couple of Easter Cards I made this week...
The first one uses Sock Monkey & Sock Monkey Accessories. Almost Amethyst is the card base, the dp is from the Hostess Prints Pack from the last catty, main image is stamped with black Stazon on Whisper White, matted w/ Lovely Lilac. I cut out the basket of eggs & popped it up w/ dimensionals.
The second card uses Loads of Love & Loads of Love Accessories. The card base is Certainly Celery (Thanks for the color suggestion Jonathan!) . The main image is stamped w/black Stazon on Whisper White, matted w/ Barely Banana. The background panel is Tempting Turquoise, run through the Big Shot with the Harlequin texture plate, then sponged with White Craft ink to make the texture "pop". It's also matted on Barely Banana.
I colored both cards with Prismacolor pencils & Gamsol to blend colors. TFL!!!
