Prehistoric Party

I made this yesterday with a retired set that I just bought. It's called Prehistoric Party. It was colored with Watercolor Wonder Crayons and a blender pen. I used the new Extreme Elements set as a background.

Catching up on Sketch Challenges

I spent some time Friday stamping with my mom and her friend. We stamped for 4 hours and I only got 4 cards made! The first card I made using an old set called Darling Dragons. I wish I had run the NQN piece through the big shot with a texture plate, but I didn't think about it until it was put together. The second card is SC229. I will probably use this for an upcoming workshop. It features the Razzle Dazzle set, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP, and the in color markers and paper. The 3rd card is an anniversary card for my brother and sister-in-law who were married one year ago tomorrow. The set is Season of Friendship and the
sentiment is from Very Versatile (Occassions mini set). The last card was very quick and easy. I used WSC89 from Beate's blog. The paper is Holiday Treasures from last year's holiday mini, and the sentiment is from Christmas Punches Level 2 Hostess set.

Pendant Park

I had a few minutes this afternoon, so I made this quick and easy card using Pendant Park and some scraps on my stampin table. Hope to post some more card this week! I haven't had much time to stamp this summer it seems like.

SCS236 with new sets~

The first card is similar to a card from the catalog. I used the Medallion BG stamp, with a build-a-brad in the middle, and a saying from Dreams Du Jour. I also used the Friendly Words wheel in versamark across the bottom of the card. The rick-rack is from one of the new Ribbon Originals. I also used Ribbon Originals on the second card. I made this for this week's sketch challenge. I layered a retired Saffron one over the new NQN one in the Elementary package. The image and sentiment here are from Peace Within, and the DP is Bella Blue. I added a mini library clip and some retired gingham ribbon because it was "missing something."

Sketches 234 and 235

The first card is for SCS234. I used a Gina K set, Comfort and Peace I think is the name. The DP is a retired one, Parisian Summer. I used the wide oval punch on the sentiment, then punched two curly labels out of Regal Rose to use as a layer. The 2nd card is for SCS 235. It is square. I used Raspberry Tart DP and punched the circles with the 1 3/8" circle. I added some Designer Hardward, a fleurette, and a button. The middle circle is stamped with 2 stamps from Circle Circus, with some pink pirouette ribbon running behind the middle row of circles.

Waiting on New Catty Stuff!

I placed my order yesterday from the new catalog, but still have stuff from preorder that I haven't played with yet. I used two of those sets today. The first image is from a level 2 hostess set called Wings of Friendship. I used the In Color markers to ink it up. It is on a layer of Bermuda Bay, which is layered on Crushed Curry Textured cardstock on a Melon Mambo base. I used the florish from the set to add to the CC Textured paper. I also used a mini library clip and one of the designer brads from the last catalog. For the 2nd card, I used Razzle Dazzle, also inked with markers. I used Soft Sky with Rich Razzleberry and Crushed Curry. The ribbon is Rose Red 1 in. ribbon, with a strip of CC textured paper across the bottom. The flourish under the bottom right corner of the Razzle Dazzle is from Wings of Friendship.
