A Round Array

TSSC261Happy Monday!  That mean Happy Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.

Today I made a quick little card with some of the ‘new stuff’ coming out!  The base of the card is Pool Party and I sponged some Crumb Cake on it to make it fit in with the dsp.  The patterned paper is all from the This and That Epic Day pack.  I took a Calypso Coral piece, rounded the corners and added using dimensionals.  I did the multicolored chevron, layered on Basic Grey than added to the card front.  I punched the flower with the Blossoms Punch, the leaves are the same punch and the back of the chevron print, the 1″ Circle is the smae dsp as the panel then I stamped the center greeting using Basic Grey on Pool Party, punched with the 7/8″ circle punch and added using dimensionals.  The flower is added using dimensionals.  I finished it off with some pearls on the panel and some small on on the flower center.

TSSC261So here’s the sketch for today.  Why not join the fun?  We’d love to have you play along!  Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

Sent with Love

SWL4And here’s a FINAL Sent with Love card!  Oh…I will so miss this fun little set!  I can’t believe the 30th is the last day for it!

Some quick details…the base of the card is Calypso Coral.  I took the plane print, layered on Whisper White then wrapped some Calypso Coral Baker’s Twine around it  and added the layer to the card front.  I stamped the plane ‘trail’ using Island Indigo on Whisper White, punched with the 1 3/4″ Circle punch and layered on a 2 3/8″ Real Red Scallop Circle then to the card front.  I stamped the dashes using Island Indigo on the back side of a tag and added it using dimensions.  The TO: YOU is a tag from the dsp that I cut out and added using dimensionals.  I stamped the Special Delivery arrow using Real Red, cut our and added using dimensionals.  Finally I punched a Real Red heart and added that using dimensionals and stamped the plane using Calypso Coral, cut out and added using dimensionals.

Sent with Love

SWL6Yep…still another Sent with Love card!  You can’t get this after the 30th so I thought I would share as many as I could!  Oh this one is so quick and easy!

The base of the card is Island Indigo.  I took a piece of Whisper White, ran it through the Clouds Embossing folder and layered on a piece of Calypso Coral.  I added a strip of the Island Indigo arrow print along the bottom.  Next I took a strip of Whisper White and stamped the on diagonal slash in Island Indigo then the other slash in Pool Party, added to the panel and wrapped some Calypso Coral Baker’s Twine around it.  The panel was added to the card front.  I added the Calypso piece and the ‘the journey…’ arrow but cut from the dsp print.  Yep…that is all there is to this card.  I thought this would be a a perfect card to give to someone going off to college!

Sweet Essentials

SUOBigShotFramelits and sizzlits and dies OH MY!  It’s time again for another SUO challenge challenge and the theme this time is Anything Sizzix!  So I decided to make a sweet little card just for you!

The base of the card is Whisper White 4 1/4 x 4 1/4.  I took another piece of Whisper White and added to the card base using dimensionals.  Next I cut a lattice out of Whisper White and yep…added THAT using dimensionals.  Have I mentioned yet just how EXCITED I am about the color refresh?  I am just SOOOO incredibly excited…so much so I dug out some of my retired stuff that is coming back to use for my card today.  My flower is from the Blossom Party Die.  And I made three of them.  The yellow ones are Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry…yep…they go BEAUTIFULLY together.  And the blue one?  Well that is Pool Party and Bermuda Bay!  Excited?  I am!  Oh…and now for the leaves…that the little Leaf sizzlit from the soon to return…Pear Pizzazz!  Life is GOOD!!  The centers of the flowers are Early Espresso.  I stamp the greeting in Early Espresso and Bermuda Bay and used the large Bitty Banner (you have to cut one side at a time) Framelit than added using dimensionals to finish off.  So yo use…framelits and sizzlits and dies…OH MY…was true!

So why don’t you join us?  I’m SURE you have some Big Shot stuff just waiting to be used!
