Sprinkles of Life

TSSC367Happy Monday everyone!  It’s time now for another Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!  This is a fun sketch this week and since I’m really lovin’ Mint Macaron, I thought I’d pair it up with Watermelon Melon for a fun birthday card!

This is the first I’ve played with the Everyday Chic dsp and loved how this print went with the rest of the card.  To do the background white piece, I used the largest Lots of Labels framelit but made it shorter than the framelit by running it through twice to make it shorter.

Here’s the details…

  • Mint Macaron – 4 1/4 x 11
  • Mint Macaron – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, run through the Elegant Dots embossing folder and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – cut out using the Lots of Labels Framelits, run through twice to make it shorter.  Add to card front.
  • Watermelon Wonder – 1/4 x 3 3/4 add to card front.
  • Everyday Chic – cut out four rectangles 1 x 3/4 and add to card front.
  • Stamp greeting using Watermelon Wonder.
  • Stamp cupcake base using Memento Black on Whisper White, cut out, stamp cupcake top using Memento Black on Watermelon Wonder and punch out, later and add to card front using dimensionals.
  • Add Perfect White Accents to top of cupcake.

TSSC367Interesting sketch this week…I really enjoyed playing with it.  I hope that that you join our challenge!    Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

Sprinkles of Life

 

TSSC366Okay before I get into this first I have to say I LOVE this card!  Seriously…it was just so much fun to make and LOVE the colors.  The second thing I have to say is that it sort of took a DETOUR a bit from the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge sketch.  Pretty much the elements are there, but things sort of moved around a bit.

I remember working with another very talented stamper on the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and sometimes when I saw her cards and looked at the sketch I would just scratch my head and she would say…the sketch is an inspiration and who knows where it will take you.  Well…that sort of happened here.  I saw the sketch and as I worked on it, this is where it took me!  LOL!!!  I LOVE it!  (Did I mention that yet?)

Here’s the details –

  • Pool Party – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 4 x 2 1/2
  • Watermelon Wonder Envelope paper – 1 x 4, add to bottom of Whisper White Piece, stamp greeting on Whisper White using Memento Black.
  • Cut three strips of dsp each 1 1/8 width from the Cherry on Top dsp.  I did 1 1/8 x 1 3/4, 1 1/8 x 1 1/2 and 1 1/8 x 1 1/4.  Add behind panel then add to card front.
  • Stamp cone on Crumb Cake using Memento Black and cut out.  Stamp ‘ice cream’ in Memento Black on Pool Party, Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder.  Layer the ice cream onto the cone then add to card front using dimensionals.

TSSC366If you look closely you will see that I pretty much did use all the elements on my card…just not in the same layout.  I hope that that you join our challenge!    Don’t forget to check out the other members of the team and remember go to the Technostamper blog to play along!

Crazy About You

TSSC361What a fun sketch Mary Jo has for us this time for the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  It is such a simple one and you can do so many thing with it.

As we are getting to end of the current catalog, I’m trying to revisit some sets and designer papers that I just didn’t use as much as I would have liked.  I LOVE the Gold Soiree dsp so you put it together with the Crazy About You set and this is what I came up with for today’s challenge.

Here’s the details –

  • Crisp Cantaloupe – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Pistachio Pudding – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, layer onto Garden Green 3 5/8 x 4 7/8
  • Gold Soiree dotted print – 1 3/8 x 3 7/8, cut into banner on both ends and add to panel.  Stamp greeting in Memento Black and add panel to card front.
  • Stamp flower 3 times in Calypo Coral, cut out and layer using dimesnionals and add to banner.
  • Add Something Borrowed Embellishment to center of flower to finish off

Simply Wonderful

TSSC359One of my very favorite things from the new catalog was the Moonlight dsp paper stack.  I love the colors and the designs of the paper.  When I was looking at the sketch Mary Jo gave us for the Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch challenge this week, I decided it was time to pull out that paper and use that for my inspiration!

Yes…it’s the butterfly again.  I do love these butterflies…they are just sooo pretty and REALLY pretty in Blackberry Bliss.

Here’s the details –

  • Sahara Sand – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Dotted print (Moonlight dsp paper stack) – 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, add to card front.
  • Whisper White – 5/8 x 3.  Stamp greeting using Sahara Sand, cut into a panel, add to card front.

Sheltering Tree

TSSC358For this week’s Technostamper Monday Lunchtime sketch challenge I decided it was time to pull out my Sheltering Tree set again but this time I wanted to go soft and pretty in pink!

I really like the look of the pink – makes me think that maybe…just maybe spring is on its way!  One of the things though was I was using my Pink Pirouette ink and it just wasn’t dark enough for the leaves so I pulled out my pink chalk ink pad and it was just PERFECT!

Here’s the details –

  • Pink Pirouette – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 – round bottom corners.  stamp trunk using Sahara Sand, leaves using Pink Pirouette AND then Rose Coral chalk ink, stamp greeting using Soft Suede, stamp ground using Pistachio Pudding.  Add to card front
  • Striped (Sweet Dreams dsp) – 1 1/4 x 4 1/4, punch with Scallop Edge Punch, wrap piece of Wild Wasabi Twine, add bow.  Add piece to card front using dimensionals.
  • Cut clip off heart paper clip.  Add to card front.  Tie White Baker’s Twine to Sahara Sand Sweet Dream button and add to center to finish off.
