It's here! Sketch #300!

It's quite a simple sketch. I hope you'll use your large alphabet stamps, word stamps or dies on the card.

Here's my card:

And since 300 seems like a big deal, I had to do something a bit different. I've made a video showing the process. It's only the second time I've made a video (and the first one I made was 4 years ago), so please be kind :)

FTL299 - Happy Birthday

Hi, everyone! Just popping in to share the card I created using the FTL299 sketch... 

To create my card today, I started by stamping three balloon images from Whimsy Stamps' Happy Everything set, then cutting them out with the coordinating die from the Party Time Balloon Die set.  I then stamped three balloon tails in light gray ink onto a white card base.

Next, I stamped three teal confetti burst images from the Happy Everything set, as well as the birthday sentiment in a darker gray.  The balloons were then attached to the card front using pop dots.  I die cut the happy from lime polka dot patterned paper using the Happy Large Word Die, then adhered it to the card base with pop dots.  To finish up, I embellished with clear gems.

Have a great one!


Congratulations FTL299

Hi! Chera here, hope you all had a great weekend!! We sure did here, enjoying the hot summer weather!! So here is my take on this weeks challenge!

For this card I pulled out my Wplus9 Spring Bloom set which I love! As well as some Wplus9 ink (also love) and put together this simple one layer card!! Quick and easy in under 10 minutes!!

Hope you enjoy!


Happy Friday! Here's this week's sketch:

If you've been following the site for any length of time, you'll know I'm quite a fan of circles! For my card, instead of using circle stamps or circle punches, I decided to do a bit of doodling. I started with some watercolour paper and watercolour crayons. I drew a few circles, then added water to smooth them out. I added a sentiment in some coordinating ink and called it a day!

Stamps: Wet Paint

I LOVE this new Simon Says Stamp card kit for July!! Its just way to cute!! I decided to use this kit for my card to share with you today!!

For the bottom half of the card I drew a line with pencil where I wanted to separate the paper,  and then versa marked the envelopes on used white embossing powder and heated it up. After I was done getting all the envelopes on there I masked off with some washi tape where I drew the line. I pulled out some distress ink sponged it on with my distress tool. Once that was done I went over it with some old Stampin Up! shimmer paint I found (the sun shifted on me so hard to see that in the pic) mixed with water and dabbed on over the distress ink. Once it was dry I removed the tape, added my sentiment some rhinestones and was done!

Hope you enjoy!!
