Oooh! Aaaah!! It's sketch time at Frosted Designs!

Hi everyone. I'm back with another card for the Frosted Designs sketch challenge. With July 4 around the corner, I decided to make a fun card with a fireworks theme.

The card is based off of this sketch:

Sketch 21

Have a great day and I hope you have a fun Fourth of July celebration!

Trying a New Challenge

Hi everyone. Today I am trying something new. My friend Melinda Gleissner has been encouraging me to participate in the Stampendous challenges. Today, I finally entered one and I have to say, it's been really fun. (Then again, what challenge isn't fun for this challenge addict! LOL!)

I made two cards for this one. The first card uses the tire swing stamp, which I colored using Copic markers. The sentiment is from the Perfectly Clear Happy Messages set. I made the sun with my Cameo and then I stuck a little birdie on it. The poor birdie misses his friend, who used to swing on the tire swing. :-(

Card number two is much happier. How can I possible enter a challenge with summertime theme without using ice cream!? I can't. If you know me well, then you know ice cream is my all-time favorite thing to eat in the whole world!! I love ice cream. This card uses the blockart owl eating ice cream stamp. I also colored him with Copic markers. I added a gem to top the treat. As you can see, the inside of the block is cut away. I'll share with you how I did that trick. First, I stamped the owl on Copic blending paper, colored him and cut him out. Then, I stamped the image again on cardstock, making sure to center it. I cut away the inside of the block. Then I paper pieced the colored owl onto the image with the cutaway center. I used foam dots to give it dimension and adhered it to a card with gingham patterned paper. There you have it. The sentiment is also from Happy Messages set.

 I hope you enjoy your summer! If you're looking for something to do, then why don't you give the Stampendous challenge a try. Just make a card with a summertime theme and link it up here. Deadline is June 28.

New Frosted Designs Challenge

Today we've posted a new sketch for the Frosted Designs card sketch challenge. I decided to indulge in my new obsession -  washi tape. I love it. I love all the pretty designs and all the clever ways it can be used. My card below uses all washi tape except for the sentiment and the flower.The inside reads "Hello."

Why not give this sketch a try. You can use washi tape, paper, ink - whatever your heart desires. You just have to make a card following the sketch. You could win some fun prizes and make new friends. All you have to do is go to Frosted Designs and click on the Current Card Sketch at the right.

I wish I could stay and chat a little longer, but I've had a rough week. Hubby hasn't been feeling well, so I've been holding down the fort. Both kids are out of school for the summer, so the fort is really more like a zoo! LOL! Needless to say, I'm tired!! Hope you all have a great week!
