It's Sketch Frenzy Friday!!!

Welcome Stampers:

It's Sketch Frenzy Friday once again, and have we got a cute sketch for you! Just look at what Brenda Taylor planned for us:

And here's what I did:

Once again I used My Digital Studio (MDS) and it was EASY PEASY! My colors are Perfect Plum, So Saffron, Bashful Blue, Regal Rose and Whisper White--all colors that will continue to be in the Stampin' Up! Core Colors. Why don't you play along.

Sketch Frenzy Friday--A Little Late

Yes it's Saturday, and yes I am a day late and a dollar short, as my mother used to say, posting my Sketch Frenzy Friday card. I was having issues with blogger and my computer on Thursday and Friday and didn't get it posted. I get frustrated when that happens, and I think it just makes it worse because my patience wears thin and then it seems to take twice as long to do anything.
Well, enough of that! Let's get on with the show. This week's sketch is courtesy of Angela Walters.

Here is my interpretation:

I used the wonderful Island Oasis DSP and the Island Party stamp set. The colors I used were right from the DSP--Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive. And I also used Chocolate Chip for the coconut drink. I stamped some flowers and cut them out, and also cut out two palm leaves from the DSP and I couldn't resist adding a strip of Old Olive 1/4" grosgrain ribbon at the bottom. What do you think of the diagonal placement? I also decorated the inside of the card:

Sketch Frenzy Friday #4

Hi Stampers!

It's that time again! Sketch Frenzy Friday returns for week 4. I have been having a ball trying out different ways to show off these sketches. The first time I participated-week 2--I did traditional stamping. For week 3, I used a Simply Scrappin' kit. THIS week I decided to use My Digital Studio to create my sample. How did I do? You be the judge!!

Here's the sketch (template)

And here's my interpretation:

The colors I used are Always Artichoke, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Crushed Curry, and Melon Mambo. The stamp image and the sentiment are from the Upsy Daisy stamp set in MDS, and I moved the opacity to a lower setting to mute the colors a little bit. I used the square punch image for the background of the three flower images, and also for the curly label punch image. The Certainly Celery rectangle is the square punch image resized and filled with color. I think MDS is a GREAT way to create a project of any kind!

Sketch Frenzy Friday!!!!!

I hope you're enjoying our Sketch Frenzy Fridays! I am certainly having fun with my creations! However, life does interfere at times! I have had a really, REALLY, busy week, so I sort of cheated with my card. Well, not really cheated--everything is current Stampin' Up! items, I just didn't do ANY STAMPING! That's right--NO stamping! I used a Simply Scrappin' kit called Happy B-day. The colors are Brocade Blue, Crushed Curry, and Ruby Red. Did you know these kits come with 6 sheets of self-adhesive die cuts? I used several from two different sheets to embellish my card. Here is the template:

And here is my card:
