Sketch Saturday Challenge #343 – Simon Says Stamp

It’s Saturday and that means it’s time for another Sketch Saturday Challenge!  This week we are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.  That means the random winner is the lucky recipient of a $25.00 gift certificate so don’t forget to come and put in your entry.

Our sketch this week:

343Now for some inspiration.  I’ve used Glitz “Black & White” collection and Simon Says Stamp “Lots of Hearts” stamp and dies stamped with hero arts shadow ink in red royal, soft granite and india ink black.  The glittery band separating the design papers is Sparkle Washi tape from Darice. To finish it off I took a small circle punch to create the “ticket” corners.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret this weeks Sketch Saturday Sketch!

Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch Challenge – Theme: Family

Happy Tuesday!  That means it’s time for a new Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch and this week we are celebrating Family!  What a perfect theme for this time of year and I couldn’t think of anything more appropriate than to highlight the ugly sweater.  We may not want to admit it but we’ve all gotten one at one time or another from family.  The sketch challenge runs through Monday, December 22nd and I look forward to seeing how you use this sketch and if you want to, the family theme.

Now, here’s the sketch and my inspiration for you:



I used Art Impression’s Ugly Sweater stamp that included the sentiment and colored her with Copic Markers.  The paper was from 2013’s Simon Says Stamp extra card kit and the postage edge was created using a Fiskar’s punch.  The gold strip is some great Sparkle tape from Darice that doesn’t rub off and is self-adhesive.   Now, let’s see your creations!

Ellen Hutson’s 12 Tags with a Feminine Twist

For those of you who don’t know about Ellen Hutson’s Classroom, you are missing a great blog where so much creativity is offered and taught.  Each year Ellen hosts her own version of 12 Tags and asks they have a feminine twist.  I was inspired by Kittie Caracciolo on Day 3.  There was something about the window that caught my eye.  Initially when I created my card I left the window open with no backing, but I didn’t like the look so I created some “wallpaper” from Basic Grey’s “Aspen” collection to frame my pink window which I sprayed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray.  The deer is from Ellen’s Essentials and the trees are from Impression Obsessions.  The date is a wood element from KaiserCraft I kindly received as a freebie from Simon Says Stamp in my last order that I sprayed with Tarnished Bronze Distress Spray.  The snowflakes are embossed with white using the My Favorite Things “Christmas Ornaments”.  The red ribbon is another Freebie, but from Ellen Hutson’s store.  I just love the personalized cards she sends with each order.  Thanks Ellen!  The small Poinsettia die is Memory Box and the gold ribbon under the window is from Darice called Sparkle Tape in  Yellow Amarillo.   Thanks for stopping by and checking out my feminine tag!
