For my card I used the July 2015 Simon Says Stamp Kit, “Sailing.”  It comes with a sweet little sailboat die that is still available.  I used Simon Says Stamp “Surf Blue” that comes in the Hybrid Cubes for the waves and the “mini stars” which is perfect for a little accent. The sentiment is Simon’s “Best Hugs.”

Sketch Saturday Challenge #399

Happy Saturday Friends!  Today’s new Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp who is offering a very generous $25.00 gift certificate to their store for our random winner.  You have until Friday, February 19th for a chance to win.

Here’s the sketch:

399

I was really inspired by Niki’s sketch this week  and knew the Simon Says Stamp set called, “Flowers on My Mind” would be perfect to showcase her design.

To create my background I stamped and embossed white powder using the triangle pattern from Simon’s “Sparkle & Shine.”  To add the great color, I used Simon’s luscious “Stamptember Hybrid Inks” for both the background and the flowers.  I finished off with some black enamel dots.

Sketch Saturday Challenge #398

Happy Saturday!  I’m really excited for todays new Sketch Saturday challenge because I created the sketch!  It’s a very simple sketch, but I love it because it allows the image to be the focus.  This is especially important for this week because our sponsor is A Day For Daisies an absolute favorite of mine.  Tammy, the creator of A Day For Daisies, is offering a very generous $12.00 gift certificate to her store for our random winner!  You have until Friday, February 12th for a chance to win.

Here’s my sketch:

My card features the stunning image from A Day For Daisies called, Doll Face 5.”  I colored her with Copic Markers  and used watercolor pencils for the background.  The sentiment is from the Amazing stamp set by My Favorite Things as is the oval die.   The banner die is Simon Says Stamp and the Scallop die is Spellbinders.
