TSSCOh…it’s another Monday and time once again for another Technostamper Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge!  I’ll have to say…this one was definitely a CHALLENGE for me!

I’m kind of ‘stuck’ right now…I REALLY want to play with all my NEW STUFF (boy…I do LOVE NEW STUFF!) but then on the other hand I have all this OLD STUFF that will be going away.  Anyway…as I was figuring out what to do for this card, OLD STUFF won!  This card has LOTS of retiring stuff on there!

Here’ the details:

  • Summer Starfruit – 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Soho Subway dsp 3 5/8 x 3 5/8, layer onto Early Espresso 3 3/4 x 3 3/4.
  • The largest Delicate Doilies in Very Vanilla and added to the panel.
  • Wrap around Crisp Cantaloupe Ruffled Ribbon then add panel to card front using dimensionals.
  • Banner 3 1/2 x 7/8 from summer starfruit print of Soho Subway, add using dimensionals.
  • Stamp greeting using Early Espresso on Soft Sky, punch with oval punch, layer onto Crisp Cantaloup Scallop Oval then onto Early Espresso Apothecary Accent piece.  Add to card front using dimensionals to finish it off.

Lacy & Lovely Favor

Wk1 FavorWOW…we have had a fun week on Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions!  Now to see the card sets, you have to be a subscribers but on Saturday each of the design team members creates a little favor (based on their set) and shares with everyone.  So…here’s my little favor based on the Lacy & Lovely set I used.

This is such an easy little favor.  It starts with a Pool Party 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle.  Next is Real Red Floral Framelits (second to smallest) and added to the base.  I stamped the lacy circle using Pool party, punched with the 1 3/4″ Circle punch and added to the Red Layer.  I stamped the greeting using Real Red on Whisper White, cut into a banner and added to the base.  Next I stamped the flower using Real Red, punched with the 1″ Circle punch, layered on a Real Red 1 1/4” Scallop Circle and added a Pool Party Designer printed brad to the center.  Added this to the base using dimensionals.  To attach it to the candy bar, just take a strip of dsp (I used Real Red), wrap around the candy bar, then add to the back of the flower.  How easy is that!

So check out the other favors from the design team by going to Create with Connie and Mary site. What fun ideas!

Lacy & Lovely Butterflies

CC420 ButterfliesI decided to take the day off!  Between taxes, school work and everything else, I have felt like I haven’t had a day off in AGES!!!  So what am I going to do?  Sit in the NEW “StamperCamper’s Corner” and stamp!

We recently got new living room carpet and my main stamping area is in the corner (of course) in the living room (I should mention…we have a BIG living room!).  So since we were getting new carpet I decided to get a new work area.  The desk I had been stamping on was probably 30 years old and was showing some signs of age.  And I got new ink pad and punch organizes.  MY…it is so easy to work now!

Anyway…back to my card.  I decided to take today off and just have some fun.  There is a GREAT color challenge on SCS and then I found this GREAT SKETCH from retro sketches.  Put the two together and you get this CAS card!

The base of the card is Whisper White.  I took another piece of Whisper White and used the three SCS colors for my blocks…Real Red, So Saffron, Pool Party.  Then added the matching dsp in both the polka dots and stripes.  I added the red and saffron to the card front, wrapped the Pool Party/Whisper White twine around it, then added the Pool Party panels.  I punched out three Basic Grey butterflies using the Bitty Butterfly punch, added with glue dots and added basic rhinestones.  Finally I stamped the greeting (from Lacy & Lovely) using Basic Grey and added the panel to the card base using dimensioals.

Lacy & LovelyHappy Easter everyone!  Isn’t this a fun set?  I think it is!  So much so I used it for my set this week on Create with Connie and Mary Card “Create”tions which starts TODAY!!!!

Such a fun card!  Although I wouldn’t really consider this CAS, it is from the sketch on the CAS – Clean and Simple Blog.  I decided to keep things to just two colors – Calypso Coral and Midnight Must.  I like how these two color complement each other.

The base of the card is Calypso Coral. I took a piece of Whisper White, stamped the larger lacy image in Midnight Muse, stamped the greeting in Calypso Coral, layered on Midnight Muse and added Incolor Printed Designer Brads then added this panel to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the flower image in Midnight Muse, punched out with the 1″ Circle Punch, layered on Calypso Coral 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle, added an Incolor Designer Printed Brad then added to the card front using dimensionals.
