Stick It Down- Sept sketch!

Here is Stick it Downs card sketch for September!


I decided to do a one layer card and try to keep the sketch. So I used two different colors...


The colors ended up being a little closer in tone than I intended, but I still liked the idea so I just went with it. I used a large background stamp to stamp half in blue and the other half in green. Then with the sentiment I did he same thing flipping which color went on the two halves of the stamp. Once the Sentiment was stamped, I then heat embossed it with clear powder and added some geometric shapes for a little more design. 


You can see the variation in color a little better in the close up. Don't forget to stop by the SID blog and play along with the sketches. If cards aren't your thing there are two scrapbooking sketches to play with as well! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

ATSM #309- CAS







Here is my card for Addicted Stamps and More's Clean and Simple challenge.








I used colored cardstock with a stamped image and sentiment. To color the image I used bleach to remove the color of the cardstock for a slightly ghosted look of color. Adhered to my card base and added some adhesive pearls to dress it up a bit. It's such a simple card and love how the bleached areas can vary, and the different looks we get depending on the colored cardstock.


Don't forget to stop by the blog and play with this weeks Clean and Simple 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!

Be kind with Joy Clair

I have  two posts today... this post is for Joy Clair's September challenge you can visit the Joy Clair blog here and see how my fellow teammies were inspired. If you would like to see the post for Merry Little Christmas challenge you can click HERE.

I started this card by taking images from Blessed Harvest to create a border for the cardstock strip that I will add. Before the cardstock strip gets adhered I ran my panel through my Big Kick with wood grain background die cut from Lawn Fawn.


I stamped and embossed the sentiment from Deer Friends in white on vellum. I die cut it with a circle die and adhered it to the panel. I had a die cut wreath near my desk and added it to the gray strip around the sentiment circle, then popped the strip up with foam adhesive.

Go Wild Joy Clair it's your birthday!

Here is my card... make that 2 cards for the Joy Clair blog today celebrating their birthday!

This is a fun technique to do as it create a window look for the card.



On the first card I used one image from the Party Animals set, colored the image and did a little paper piecing for the balloon. Then cut my panel into 6 and adhered it to a black scrap for a border around the mini panels.



For card two I did the same technique, but stamped my image in a gray ink multiple times and the main image in black so I could color it to stand out.
