Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

Today, I did two samples from the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge. They are using the Always Thankful Stamp set from the 2012 Holiday Mini Catalog. So you get two samples and a sneak peak. The colors are Always Artichoke, More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Soft Suede. I used water color paper and water colored both images. Enjoy!

Well I've been gone a while, summer was busy, but we are back in school and I'm back to crafting away. Today I decided to do a project using two challenges. The first one was using this sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday and the Color Combination came from Creative Sketches Color Challenge. You can click on the titles to visit their sites. So here is my card. I used the following Stampin' Up Products.

Basic Black Cardstock
Basic Grey Cardstock
Poppy Parade Cardstock
Basic Pearls
1/8" Black Taffetta Ribbon (looks brown but it's black)
Sweet Buttons Embosslits Die
Itty Bitty Flower Punch

Pretty Postage Clear Mount Stamp Set
Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder

I'll try not to stay gone so long next time :)

Ok, so I can't get enough of this color combination. I created a milk carton six sided box, using the colors from this challenge.

Ugliest Card Ever

I can't believe I'm posting this to my blog. I made this card tonight for someone at my church who is in the hospital. I'm sure she will think it's just lovely, the jury is still out with me. This is using some sneak peek products form the summer mini, as well as paper from the Four Frames promotion going on right now with Stampin' Up. As always, if you would like to place an order please email me at I also used a sketch from Sketch Frenzy Fridays. This technique I had seen before but never tried. I colored the stamped image with Stampin' Write Markers and then spritzed the image with water. It gives it a softer watercolor image on a solid stamp. Thanks for looking.

Stampin' Up products used:

Old Olive Cardstock

Baja Breeze Seam Binding

Triple Layer Flower Punch

Whisper White Cardstock

Fabulous Florets Stamp Set

Paisley Petals DSP

Pearl accents

Flower Garden Embossing Folder

Non Stampin' Up Products Used: Water Spritzer Bottle
