SFF082815--Tip Top Taupe, Black, and White

Hello Friends!

It's Friday and time for another Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge.  Our sketch today was created by Jennifer Kay:
This sketch could go in many different directions.  Here's what I did:
At first, I wasn't sure if I would like the new In Color, Tip Top Taupe, but I have actually used this color almost as much as I have Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush.  Today, I have used it with Basic Black and Whisper White.  All three of these colors are in the Go Wild Designer Series Paper Stack.  This paper stack has some animal prints, as well as other prints.  It is DEFINITELY a great combination of neutrals!
The sentiment is from a stamp set that will be in the Holiday Catalog, which goes live on Sept.1, called Acorny Thank You.

That's it for me today.  Hop on over to the SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY BLOG to see what the other designers have created.  You can also show us your take on this sketch.  Just use the InLinkz tool on the blog

SFF082115-My first Halloween card of 2015

Hello friends!

Welcome to Friday and a new Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge.  This week, I am the sketch creator:
Here's what I did with my sketch:

It's my first Halloween card of 2015!  I used the Howl-O-Ween Treat stamp set from the new Holiday catalog.  This set is only available to demonstrators right now, but will be available to everyone on Sept. 1.
In addition to the stamp set, other new items are the washi tape and the Black Glimmer Paper.  This glimmer paper is super sparkly and I love it!  I also added some sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment, and the Trick or Treat is stamped with the NEW Archival Basic Black ink!  The doily is from the gold and silver doilies in the Annual catalog.
That's it from me today.  Hop on over to the SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY BLOG and check out what the other designers have created.  You can also add your own creation.  Show us how you would use this template!

Time once again for Sketch Frenzy Friday!  Here's our sketch from Carol Read:
Here's my creation:
I used Pink Pirouette for the card base, a strip of English Garden DSP, silver 1/8" ribbon, silver doily from the gold and silver doilies package, a Pink Pirouette 2-1/2" circle, a 2-3/8" scallop circle punch on which I stamped Just for You from the Watercolor Words stamp set.  I also stamped the large and small flowers from the same set--the large flower as the background on the top half of the card, and the small one on Pink Pirouette and punched with the 1" circle punch.  Then I popped a pearl in the middle.
