Happy Birthday Sweet Boy!

It's Thursday so I've got a card to share for the sketch challenge from Create with Connie and Mary.  Here's a look at the sketch for this week.

Isn't this fun!  I have been dying to try out the new Dear Heart photopolymer set and this sketch was perfect for it.

I love the sweet little faces in this set, especially since I have two little boys to make cards for!   I had a card base already embossed from a previous project and so this card just came together from what was in front of me.

I stamped the background images tone on tone.  The little dinosaur is in Old Olive and the baseball is Pumpkin Pie.   The Pumpkin Pie cardstock was cut freehand to match the shape from the sketch.  I just adhered it to the strip of Old Olive.

For the sentiment, I pieced together two stamps.  I stamped "happy birthday" from Something to Say on Whisper White.  Next, I stamped "sweet boy" with Pumpkin Pie.  This is where photopolymer is so awesome, I had a super easy time lining it up!  I punched the whole thing out and added it to the card.

The final element was the little boy.  I used the cutie with the baseball cap since I had already done baseballs in the background.  He's stamped on Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut out by hand.  I colored him in with Blendabilities...you have got to get these if you don't already have them!  There are six colors available now and the rest will be ready August 1st!

Now it's your turn!  Pull out your stamps and paper and join the challenge with me.  You can find all the details plus more great samples at Create with Connie and Mary.

All Abloom Thank You

I have a really happy Thank You card to share today for the sketch challenge from Try Stampin' on Tuesday.  First, let's check out the sketch.

I wasn't quite sure what to do with the large open space in the center, so I went with Designer Series Paper.  The majority of the card is from All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack.  That's what makes this card so happy and EASY!  I love putting together cards that are quick but beautiful, especially when time is short.

I think this particular design is just soooo gorgeous!  I started with a Strawberry Slush card base and added in the two strips of designer paper first.  I used the back side of this floral design, they look amazing together!  The sentiment also has the yellow paper as it's matting.  I used the "Thank You" from Four You, I think it goes with this paper so well!  The last little design touch is a bit of Strawberry Slush Thick Baker's Twine.  With the thick twine there, I had to use dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card.

I love how this card turned out, this sketch would be amazing with all sorts of Designer Papers!

I hope you will join the challenge with me!  Just go to Try Stampin' on Tuesday for all the details plus more great samples from the Design Team.

Bloom with Hope for TSSC324

It's Monday and time for the Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge.  A fun sketch as always, take a look.

I sat for a minute and looked at the sketch before deciding to go the floral route.  I like the flowers from Bloom with Hope, especially the largest flower.  Here's what I ended up making.

 I went with colors from the Park Lane Designer Series Paper.  I knew I wanted to use ribbon for one of the design elements, and this Daffodil Delight Seam Binding was perfect.  The card base is Daffodil Delight with a layer of Old Olive cardstock with Park Lane polka dot paper.  Next is the focal point done in Calypso Coral.  I first stamped the large flower from Bloom with Hope in Calypso Coral.  It's die cut with a Circle Framelit with a Calypso Coral matting as well.  The final touches are the ribbon and sentiment.  The sentiment is from Regarding Dahlias, it was the perfect size for the Word Window Punch.  This would be a great card for any occasion, just change out the sentiment!

Now it's your turn to be creative!  Grab your stamps and paper and join the challenge with me!  Just go to Technostamper for all the details plus more great cards from the Design Team.
