Saturday Sketch!

Who is up for a weekend Sketch? ME! ME!

So I figured I would start a weekly challenge here on my blog. Now I have added this ti the list of growing categories.

Saturdays are usually “slow” days, and I wanna get challenged again. A little inspiration never hurt anyone right? I love the sketch challenge every Wednesday at SCS, and sometimes need more inspiration by the weekend.

Well, I made a sketch book a month or so ago, and put all my favorite sketches that I designed in there. Figured I should probally USE them. Especially since I loved them to begin with. So each week I’ll be here casing myself. Pretty fun actually. Makes stamping go much faster too, since I already have my layout planned.

So, to not only inspire myself, but you as well, figured I’d share them with you each week. I hope this will get you stamping! You can do it anytime through the week, and feel free to link your creation back here if you want.

This was one of my favorite layouts. Here is the original design.

For this card I used my new Poppy Stems stamp by Stampendous. The paper was my inspiration. Its by Paper Salon. Again-bought at eP! I have a love hate relationship with their store- I love it, but my pocketbook hates it! LOL!

The scalloped circle punch is from All That Scraps. The poppy image was stamped on GLOSSY white, in black stazon, then colored with markers. You must try that! You get such vibrant color from it.

And that is pretty much it.

I have a busy weekend here. Preparing for Disney, design calls with deadlines (not complaining about that).

Noah has T-ball tryouts!

I have to go shopping (big surprise right), girl needs to look good for Disney. Want matching outfits for my girls. Can yo say Disney store! Love that place.

I want to put my cake decorating classes to good use, and make my mom her birthday cake. We will see if I actually accomplish that. She wants Pansy’s. If I do it, Ill post it here tomorrow. Plus need to make up her Easter Basket. I also wanted to make her 4 glass coasters but I think that may end up waiting for Mothers Day.

Boil eggs since we are doing our Easter tomorrow. Big egg hunt at my mom’s.

Should be fun and exhausting! How will I ever get it all done?

Happy Saturday!

Agapanthus Acetate

I *LOVE* this stamp from Stampendous! Agapanthus Cluster.

Here is yet another one of my StazOn, with pearlescent pastels acetate cards. I truly enjoy me new technique!

I wanted a very soft, simple card, and believe I achieved it with this. This stamp is so pretty you don’t need much embellishing to make it wow you.

When I see this I think SUNSET. The card-stock is shimmery white. The flowers were done on an acetate sheet in white StazOn, and then popped with Pebbles pearlescent Pastels (cant stop using shimmery stuff lately).

The acetate is secured to the card by the brads. The tab says “just because” but you cannot see it well in the photo. Its done in gold.

Love this tiffany fiber by SU! It has gold and silver strands in it.

The stamp was purchases at eP! See my shop till you drop list.

Happy Saturday!
