A quick post this week--and another card created in MDS!!
Here's the sketch by Tina Taves:
And here is my MDS card:
I borrowed the color palette from the new Autumn Spice DSP in the Holiday mini--pg.13. That DSP coordinates with Cajun Craze, Old Olive, More Mustard, and Early Espresso. I used all the colors for my card except the Early Espresso. The DSP on the card is from the selections in MDS. The stamp set called Pumpkin Patch is no longer available as a rubber and wood stamp set, but is still available in MDS. It's one of my favorites.

It's beautiful weather here in Cincinnati. I woke up this morning to cool temps and blue, blue skies! Too bad I have to spend the day in an office! Oh, well, there's always the way cool SFF sketch to keep me happy inside! And here it is:
This sketch comes to us from Tammy Baldwin. Isn't it great? I just love it! Too bad I didn't have time to STAMP a card. Instead, I created my card in MDS. I LOVE MDS!! I have done several of these sketches in MDS. The nice thing about it is that I now have a small library of cards that I can print, or have printed thru Stampin' Up! to have on hand for sending! Here is my interpretation of the sketch--very much a copy:
I used Very Vanilla cardstock as the base, layered with the small flower designer paper design in Chocolate Chip, then more layers of Very Vanilla and Chocolate Chip. All of the layers were created with the square punch and adjusted to size. I then used the large flower punch in Very Vanilla and the small flowers paper fill in Chocolate Chip. The sentiment is from the Always stamp brush set--it was so easy to change the color of the font to Very Vanilla. I also used the Very Vanilla brads and Very Vanilla satin ribbon as embellishments. Everything is in MDS and so easy to put together!

Our artist for this sketch today is Melinda Couden. Didn't she come up with a wonderful design? And here's my interpretation:
For this card I used Early Espresso and Confetti White card stock, Greenhouse Gala DSP, Peach Parfait and Early Espresso ink, Basic Pearls--centers of the circle images, the polka dots textured impressions folder for the Big Shot, the scallop circle punch and the Word Window punch. I think it turned out pretty good! What do you think?
