Sketch Frenzy Friday-Summer Smooches

Hi Stampers:

It's time once again for Sketch Frenzy Friday.  Today is special in the Stampin' Up! world because we are right in the middle of our annual demonstrators' convention.  Unfortunately, I am not there (sigh, boo hoo).  However, in the effervescent spirit of Convention, I chose to make a card using the Bright Blossoms stamp set, and Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper, and the new Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon.  But first, here is our sketch this week, created by Maria:
GREAT sketch, Maria!!!!

And now, here is my creation:

I have to apologize for the picture--I am still trying to learn this new laptop, and I haven't quite gotten the photo program under control.  You'll notice that I altered the sketch a little--not quite as many colors of DSP, and I left off the circle at the bottom of the scallop circle element, changed the shape of THAT element, and left off the brads.  I thought brads or buttons micht have been too busy with the circles on the DSP!

Time to jump over to MARIA'S BLOG to see what she has created.  And remember--you can play along with us and upload your creation to our SFF BLOG.

Sketch Frenzy Friday-No Bad Luck Today!!

Hi Stampers!!

It's Friday the 13th, but SFF will not bring you bad luck today.  We have an awesome sketch--if I do say so myself, since I created it.  Here it is:

Looks a little complicated, but believe me it is easy!  A little cutting, a little layering, a little ribbon and you're done.  In the case of my sample (below), I used My Digital Studio to do the cutting, layering, ribbon, etc.  Here is my creation:

This is what I used:
  • Everything Eleanor Digital download
  • Calyso Coral
  • Soft Suede
  • Soft Suede Digital Seam Binding Ribbon
  • Fabulous Phrases Digital download
That's it for me.  Hop over to MARIA'S BLOG to see what she has created for us.  And please visit our MAIN BLOG and join us by uploading your creation!

SFF 7-6-12

Hi Stampers:

I may have mentioned that I have been having computer problems over the last several weeks.  Well, when I turned on my laptop today(Thursday), I got the dreaded "hard drive not found"!  ARRRGH!  So I took it to Office Depot and they were able to turn it on, but I could only do 2 things:  either purchase a new hard drive or a new computer.  I chose to purchase a new laptop and I got it at about 7:00 pm.  Fortunately, I had bought an external backup hard drive, and had backed up my computer last week, but no time tonight to get the backup loaded on my new laptop to get this post done, so I have no card to show you this week.  I CAN show you the sketch, which is AWESOME, and I am linking you to MARIA'S  BLOG and to the main SFF BLOG PAGE.  Here is the sketch created by Jennifer Weide:

Don't forget--go to Maria's Blog to see what she has created OR go to the SFF BLOG to upload your own creation or to start anywhere in the list.
