Strawberry Slush Serene Silhouettes

It's Tuesday so that means it's time for another sketch challenge from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  Another great sketch over on their blog.  There is a theme which I totally forgot to do even after I wrote it down!  I had an idea pop into my mind and totally forgot about the colors...yellow, orange and brown.  That's ok because the theme is optional, but I do like to try and play along with it usually.

This card wasn't too hard to make...just mostly sponging.  I wanted to start in one corner and have that one be the darkest and move my way to the opposite corner and have that be the lightest, but still try to have a dividing line from dark to light horizontally across the card.  When I sponged I put my smaller piece of whisper white card stock on my larger piece of whisper white with just enough tape to make it stick so I could take it off later.  I did the same with a circle piece of scrap paper using my 1 3/8" circle punch so I could have a white moon after I was done sponging.  After all my sponging was done I stamped my image on the small piece of card stock (make sure you've taken it off your larger piece), layered it on basic black, then lined up the moon when I placed it on the larger piece of cardstock since part of the image was on my smaller piece and some on the larger piece.  I colored my pearls with the darkest smoky slate blendabilites marker since I don't have any black candy dots left (but still plenty of other colors left!).  

Make sure you hop over to Try Stampin' on Tuesday HERE to see the other great cards created using this sketch and to play along too. 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Fall French Foliage

Is it Friday already?  Wow has this week flown by!  I won't complain about that. :)  Well since it's Friday I have another card for the Friday Mashup.  This week Heidi brings us another fun mashup challege...

Create a project using the "Sketch". 
Create a project with "Leaves".
or Mash it Up! and create a project with "Leaves using the Sketch". 

I had to use my favorite fall set for today's card even though it's retired.  This set creates a beautiful card all the time. :)  I embossed the leaves in gold and fussy cut them out.  Then using the newest In colors I sponged in each of the leaves and, of course, had to spritz them with smooch spritz.  

Make sure you head over to the Friday Mashup HERE to be see what the other designer's created and to play long too. :)

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Beauty of the Season

Guess what?  Christmas is coming!  The last I heard someone mention it we were 15 weeks away.   How are you doing on your Christmas cards?  I have quite a few done thanks to 'Tis the Season Christmas card blog challenge. :)  That's what today's card is for, and we are on challenge #25.  Why not stop on by HERE to get a little inspiration and to play along. 

I really like this new Christmas set from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog, Beauty of the Season.  I was going to add in some sponging or brayering for the backgrounnd, but decided I liked the card just like this.  After coloring everything in with Blendabilities and coloring over it with an embossing marker so I could clear emboss over everything I wasn't about to take a chance and ruin it. lol

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Sweet Stippled Blossoms

Today there's another fun sketch over at Try Stampin' on Tuesday and this is my take on it.  Even though fall is already on it's way I still wanted to use flowers.  I just have them a little darker and used three of the new In Colors for this card since they're great fall colors!  Try Stampin' on Tuesday has also started up themes again,...Back to School, but I didn't go with it this time.  Since all my kiddos are out of school (well other than college) I decided to skip that part, plus I just don't know what to do for a school theme! lol

Make sure you stop by Try Stampin' on Tuesday's blog HERE to see all the other great cards and to play along with us too.  We'd love to see what you create using this sketch. 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
