Blogger's Challenge #201: Sketch!

Don't freak out...I'm on time this week!  I actually am going to try to work ahead of schedule...I used to be able to do this so I'm hoping I will be able to again!

Lisa S. created the awesome sketch above. It didn't take too long for me to figure out what I was going to do with it!

I knew I needed a bit of texture, some scallops and some DSP to complete my project!  I did use Cherry Cobbler but this is coming out way brighter than Cherry Cobbler really is in real life!

Thanks for checking out my card and please, check out below what the other players did with the sketch.  Finally, please play along with us!

Blogger's Challenge #200: Emboss Me!

I'm finally posting again!  I was super sick with the flu last week so I apologize for not creating or posting anything!  I have conquered that illness so now I can produce something!

Our challenge this week was to emboss.  I used a Texturz plate for my Big Shot to add the texture on the background after I stamped and the border is created with the Framed Tulips Impressions folder.  I added lots of sponging to complete my work.

Please be sure to see what the other players embossed by checking out their links below.  Happy Stampin'!

Blogger's Challenge #198: Color Challenge!

This week's color challenge was to used Black, White and Red in our project.  Well, I cheated a bit and used Very Vanilla in place of Whisper White but I wanted to use my Newsprint DSP so I had to make that adjustment.

My main image is from the set called Friends 24-7.  I LOVE this set!  LOVE IT!  I also snuck in a set you can get for free with the Saleabration benefits (place a $50 order before shipping, handling and tax and choose this or LOTS of other sets free!)  This set is called Bliss.  LOVE the flourish in it!  I also used the background stamp called Sanded.  I finished it off with the ribbon and an Antique Brad.

Thanks for looking and be sure to check all of the Players below!  You are also invited to play along!
