Happy Happy Happy...

Hello everyone, today is my first post with Stick it Down! I'm so excited to be apart of the team and to work with the sketches. If you haven't heard of or played with the challenge before they not only have a card sketch, but sketches for scrapping as well. they have a single page and double page sketch as well. Visit the post here to see all the sketches.

Here is this months card sketch by Laura Rumble. 


Here is my take on the sketch!

I picked my colors of cardstock to trim down to size. I adhered them to a piece of copy paper to keep them together. Then used my Misti to stamp the sentiment repeatedly and then heat embossed.

ATSM #299- CAS



Today's card is for Addicted to Stamps and More, we are working on Clean and Simple. My card is a little more busy than my usual clean and simple, but I included it for this challenge since it was pretty simple to make. I used my MISTI to stamp everything, except for the image (it's a wood stamp). I made 10 of these... you can see some of the others peeking out from the bottom of the top card.  They are a going away gift for my folks who are moving back to Texas, I thought they could use them to send their new address.Before adhering the panels to the cardbase, I added some color with Copics keeping the coloring simple.


Don't forget to stop by the blog and play with this weeks CAS challenge, I can't wait to see what you share with us. Thanks as always for stopping by! Feel free to leave a comment and follow the blog for updates with new posts!

July

I started my card by adding some glitter in shades of blue and white to create my background. I then stamped, colored and fussy cut the ship from Light House. I die cut a circle to create a window and laid it over the glitter background. After I adhered the boat, I stamped the sentiment and added some white stars on the glitter background and sentiment areas.

Sky is the limit with Joy Clair

Today I'm posting over at the Joy Clair blog! Using the new set Sky's the Limit with some inks from Imagine crafts.



I decided to share a image of my attempt to stamp on a cork coaster, using VersaFine Clair inks from Imagine Crafts. So far so good, I need to see how it stands up with a sweaty glass on it, but I like the way it looks and the ink stamped well on the cork!
