SFF082914 For All Things

Hi Stampers:

Once again it's time for our Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge.  I am the designer this week:
Lots of room to add all kinds of elements to your creation.  Here's the way I went:
I used the awesome stamp set For All Things which is now available for everyone to order from the Holiday Catalog.  My colors are:  Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss, Crushed Curry and Whisper White.  Accessories:  Autumn Wooden Elements, Color Me Autumn Washi Tape, Linen Thread, Circles Framelits, Perfect Polka Dot TIEF. 

The first picture I took of my card was this:
I thought it needed something else, so I added the wooden element and the linen thread.

Now, click on over to our SFF Blog and check out what the other designers did.  And don't forget to play along.  We want to see what you do with this sketch.

SFF082214--For All things and a New Punch

Hi Stampers!

Happy Friday to all of you!  Autumn is coming quickly, although you would never know it by the weather here this week--it has been hot, hot, HOT!  To celebrate the coming of Fall, I used a new stamp set that will be in the Holiday Catalog, and there are only 6 days until you can order it!  The stamp set is called For All Things.  But first, take at look at our great sketch by Stacey Tomkowiak:

Here is my take on the sketch:
Colors are Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Cajun Craze, Blackberry Bliss.  I used the sentiment from the For All Things stamp set, the note tag stamp from the Cheerful Tags stamp set, the Note Tag punch, Deco Labels Framelits, Perfect Polka Dots TIEF, larger butterfly from Kinda Ecelctic stamp set, Pearls, Crushed Curry 3/4" Chevron ribbon, Color Me Autumn DSP .
I hope you enjoyed lookng at my little creation.  Now click on over to the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog and check out what the other designers have done with this sketch.  We love to see what you create, so please post your creation based on our sketch this week.  You have 2 weeks to play along with us,

SFF081514--My First Almost Fall Card

Hi Stampers:

Friday seems to roll around WAY too quickly these days, but I'm ready with a Sketch Frenzy Friday post.  Our sketch this week was created by Elizabeth Harris:

Here's what I did with this cute sketch:
As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew what I wanted to do with it, but as I worked with it, I tweeked it a bit, and changed some of the things I used.  For one thing, I wanted to use the Choose Happiness stamp set, but I didn't want to cut out the flower, so I used the large scallop circle punch, but It looked kind of plain with Hello Honey stamped on Hello Honey, so I added one of the NEW cute wooden Autumn Accents, which will be available on Aug. 28 in the Holiday Catalog.  The greeting I used is from another NEW stamp set in the Holiday Catalog--For All Things.  The colors I chose are:  Hello Honey, Old Olive, Very Vanilla.  I also used a strip of paper from the Moonlight DSP stack, the Lovely Lace TIEF, the Stripes TIEF, the Party Pennants Bigz L die, and Hello Honey Striped Satin Ribbon.

Want to see more creations?  Just head on over to the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog.  Why not play along with us, too?  There's a link to upload on the SFF blog.

SFF080814--I turned it sideways

Hi Stampers!

Friday is here and it's time for Sketch Frenzy Friday.  The sketch this week was created by Diana Eichfeld:
Here's my creation:
I needed a thank you card for a sweet lady I met yesterday, so I created this one.  I turned the sketch sideways only because I stamped and mounted the interior piece and forgot to turn it horizontally, so I decided to turn the front around.  I had already stamped (and smudged) the inside piece twice, and I WAS NOT going to do it a third time!  So there!
Here's the inside:
Items used:
Kinda Eclectic clear mount stamp set
Something to Say clear mount stamp set
Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss Card stock
Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss ink pads
Top Note Die
Basic Pearls
Honeycomb TIEF
Clrcles Framelits
Elegant Butterfly punch
Ticket Duo Punch
Stampin' Dimensionals
Moonlight DSP stack

Don't forget:  you can upload your creation based on our sketch at Sketch Frenzy Friday.  And be sure to check out the other designers' creations!
