SFF062014--A Baby Card

Hi Stampers!

It's Sketch Frenzy Friday time again!  We have a great sketch from Patrice:
And here is the baby card I decided to make:
The daughter of some friends recently gave birth to a darling little girl.  This is their first grandchild, and want I wanted to let them know how happy we are for them!  Appropriately, I decided to use some of the Lullaby DSP on the card.  It has colors I would never have thought to use together:  Coastal Cabana and Hello Honey, but surprisingly, they look pretty good together.  In addition to the two stamp sets and one of my favorite punches, I tied a piece of Hello Honey Satin Stitched Ribbon around one of the new In Color Printed Clothespins--LOVE them!!

Hopefully, you'll have time today to check out the other designers' great cards.  Just visit our blog  Sketch Frenzy Friday

Here's a list of the items I used:

SFF061314 Another new In Color with a Twist

Hi Stampers:
Today our Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch was provided by Diana Eichfeld, and it's a good one!
And here's what I did with it:
I decided to use the new stamp set Sea Street because of the little octopus stamp.  Love this little guy!  Don't know if you can see his expression well, but he has a cute smile.  I, unlike some people, don't really like to cut things out with scissors, so I stamped the octopus with new Lost Lagoon on to Whisper White paper and then punched him out with the 2-3/8 inch scallop circle punch.  Although the new Maritime DSP doesn't have Lost Lagoon as a coordinating color, I decided it would blend very well, so I used it.  The card base is one of the new Cut & Ready card bases in the new 2014-2016 In Colors.  There is an assortment of 4 card bases in each color in the package for a total of 20 card bases. They are a little more expensive than just cutting card stock into cards, but I can tell you, as a demonstrator, I find them to be a wonderful time saver for me for prepping for workshops and classes.  The card bases also come in 2013-2015 assorment and packages of 20 all one color in several colors.  Check out pg. 194 in the new 2014-2015 catalog.  And if you need a catalog, please contact me!

SFF060614 Blackberry Bliss!! I am in Heaven

Hi Stampers:

Quick post today.  Time again for  Sketch Frenzy Friday and we have a great sketch this week from  Patrice:
And here's my card:
The card base is the one of the new In Colors, Blackberry Bliss.  I am a lover of all things purple, so this color is right up my alley. For my focal point, I used the Flower Shop stamp set colored with our new Blendabilities alcohol markers.  I used Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.  The sentiment is from a new photopolymer set called Endless Birthday Wishes.  Sadly, the Blendabilities markers will not be available until July, and the Endless Birthday Wishes set is temporarily on backorder.  I am going to play some more with Blackberry Bliss:  I love it!
