Stick It Down Card Sketch Challenge

Hi crafty friends!
I hope your Monday is off to a marvelous start! 

Today I am here to share a card sketch with you from the 
Stick It Down is a monthly sketch challenge blog.  They provide sketches not only for a card once a month, but also for double and single page layouts! Cool right??
The sketches are normally posted on the first of the month with reveals throughout the month of the design team's interpretations. Today the card team designers are showing what they created for this month's card sketch.

Here is a look at the January 2017 card sketch;


and here is my take on the sketch:


This card came together so quickly! I was flipping through some papers and found these patterns pretty fast. It was pretty easy to pair up the skunk image once I had these papers picked out and the great sketch just tied it all together! The longest part was waiting for the glossy accents to dry lol! 

I hope you will stop by the Stick It Down Challenge blog and take a peek at what my design team sisters created with the sketch. I hope you are inspired to join us! I would love for you to link up so I could take a peek at what you created :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really do appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!

Wool Ewe Be Mine?

Hi crafty friends!
How is everyone's weekend going so far? It's rainy here and when you pair that with the little cold I have, you have the perfect combination to stay in and craft lol! Gotta see the bright side of things right?? Today I have a card to share with you that I created for a couple of challenges.


and


Here is the card that I created for the challenges:


This card was really simple to create and was done rather quickly, one of the perks of CAS :) I colored my image with my Copic markers and used a circle die to cut it out. I placed it on top of a pink doily and trimmed off a section so that it would fit snug against my strip along the side of the card. I finished off my card with the greeting popped up with some foam tape and some doodling around the card front. 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and take a look at my latest creation.
I really appreciate it!

XOXO

Happy happy Saturday!!
Any fun plans for the weekend? I'm feeling a bit under the weather (just a small cold) so I plan on staying in and crafting the weekend away lol! I was looking at some challenge sites last night and came across this great sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

Here is a look at their sketch:

Tuesday Morning Sketch #386

Here is a look at the card I created based on the above sketch:


My bestie sent my this sweet little stamp as a Christmas gift this past Christmas and I have been itching to get her inky! I stamped her out onto some Copic paper and colored her in. I used a postage frame die to cut her out and popped it up with some foam tape. The XOXO is a die that I cut out and simply glued onto a strip of black cardstock. I put some Clear Wink of Stella on my image for a little sparkle. Every girl needs a dress that sparkles right??

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and take a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

You Are So Spectacular

Hi there crafty friends!
How is your Wednesday going so far? I hope wonderfully!

Today I would like to share a card that I made using some of those awesome
Pink & Main stamps and dies.

BlogButton


My daughter loves anything, especially critters, with glasses on so I thought it would be fun to make her a card with this sweet little owl from the Owl Nerds stamp set. I stamped the owl onto some white cardstock and colored her in with my Copic markers. I used the coordinating Owl Nerds dies, cut her out and added glossy accents to her lenses. I sat her to the side to let her dry and then worked on the rest of the card. I used the largest die in the Stitched Rounded Rectangles set to cut out my polka dot paper and the Stitched Circle Dies for my blue and white circles. I popped up the white circle with some foam tape. For my greeting, I masked off part of the stamp from the Wild About You stamp set to get the "you are so". The "spectacular" came from the Owl Nerds stamp set. I also popped up my greeting with foam tape. Once my Owl was dry, I glued her to the white circle and added a little green bow to finish off my card.

Shopping Our Stash #286

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week challenge #286 is....
Fantastic Beasts!
(Unicorns, Dragons, Monsters, Etc.)

Here is what I created:



My crafty bestie's hubby is having a birthday soon so I decided to make a card to send to him. He likes dragons so this challenge was the perfect time to get one made. 😀 I stamped the dragon and fire and colored them in with my Copics. I fussy cut them out and put them off to the side for a bit while I worked on the rest of the card. I took some distress inks and did a little bit of ink blending for my sky. I used a cloud border die to create the clouds at the bottom. I adhered the sky and clouds to my card base. I popped up the fire with some foam tape and attached the dragon to my card with an action wobble so that he "flies" a little.

Neglected items from my stash that I used are:

  • Distress Inks. I hardly ever use them.
  • Puffy Cloud Border Dies
  • Action Wobbles

Be sure to stop by the Shopping Our Stash challenge blog to see the amazing creations my design team sisters created. I hope you will decide to play along with us, I would love to see what you create.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a great crafty day!
