OK so I got to spend the ENTIRE day stamping yesterday! Can you hear me screech with happiness over getting that much UNINTERRUPTED MY TIME!! Oh my gosh did I feel amazing. The creative juices were flowing!! I know why I LOVE stamping so much. After not getting anything done for days, I was getting with-drawls I swear! Stamping is such an important part of my life. Its my sanity. With all I have going on in my house I NEED that sanity break, especially before the start to another week. I usually spend time with my family on the weekend, but this was needed before I burst at my seams.

I also have a new stamp set find! I know you all went NUTS for the Princess set, so maybe you will like this one too. Keep reading.

This week is going to be JAM packed here on my blog with lots of eye candy! I have release peeks ALL week from C.C. Designs, My Favorite Things, and Pink Cat Studio! I am super happy with the way everything came out. So many ideas flowing. I can’t wait to share it all.

So yesterday I really enjoyed my stamping time, and having my sketch to work with really got my gears turning. When I have a few days on NON stamping, my mojo can be on pause. Having the sketch as a starting point was a great way to warm up. I got to create 2 samples using my sketch from yesterday, since I had so much fun with it.


So that is the mytimess10 sketch

Here are my cards

Warm little hedgies


Isn’t this so cute?

I LOVE little hedgehogs! I missed out on the old Stampin Up! ones years ago, so when I saw these I HAD to have them.

So I stamped and colored them all cute. Sponged the sky. I used some cellophane sprinkles I found at Michaels in the kids craft section, with lots of other glitters as my snow. Trust me you are going to be seeing this stuff A LOT over the next few days! It makes the COOLEST CHUNKY snow-ever. Having many winter themed cards this is my newest product must have. Much cooler than regular glitter, in my opinion. A BIG container of it was like $2.99. I used my Martha Stewart clear decoupage glue to adhere it.

My paper is Kraft, and dark Chocolate. I used patterns paper by Basic Grey-figgy pudding, and Lizzie Anne’s Winter Wonderland.

On my ribbon I used another favorite, which is silver snowflake table confetti, from Target. I put it on my ribbon (May Arts)center, and put it on the ends of my ribbon bloom, by pulling it through the centers of my snowflake confetti.


I found these at Walmart. The set was $2.99! Pretty cute huh? Its just a generic type of package, no known company on there. I think it was well priced, and too cute to pass up 😀

There is a hedgie couple (I used them on my card), super cute owl with earmuffs, an adorable bear/polar bear, and that moose has leg warmers on!! I also used the sentiment from the set on my card today.

I love it. The sketch was perfect for my new set.

Now I have a little MFTeaser for you! I love Annie LaPointe’s monthly release of floral image. This month we have 2 coming out.

I used the Scented Geranium single for my next sketch card.


I used my paper by Imaginisce  as my color inspiration.

Its a cranberry crisp, spring moss, and olive combination with a hint of regal rose for the pink.

As you can see its NOT an exact follow of my sketch, but it was certainly inspired by it! I didn’t need ANOTHER sentiment, so I used a punched vellum butterfly in its place. The buttons are arranged differently than the sketch, but in the end it was more balanced this way.

What I did for this main image,  was stamp my floral image onto white cardstock, I then stamped the SAME image onto vellum cardstock. I layered them perfectly over eachother, then die cut with my circle nestabilities.


I separated the 2 pieces, and using an embossing stylus, I embossed the flowers from the back. This gives a puffy- 3 D effect. I then layered it back onto my white circle, and secured with glue dots. I then colored the front with Copic markers.

I think it looks really cool.

I hope you get to try the sketch today, or sometime soon. Its a great starting place for when you want to get stamping. I hear many of you say you often don’t know WHERE to begin when you DO get my time in. I have a link on my sidebar to all the past sketches, so if this one isn’t what you are looking for try another. There is NO time limit on these, just do what inspires you most.

Well that is all for today. I have lots to do, more posts to write :D, you know the story.

Thanks for checking in, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow.
