Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenges
My friend Jennifer of Jennifer's Sweet Designs has opened her own stamp company this week.........Check out Stamps and Smiles, if you haven't already!!
She is such a sweet lady and her images are doubly sweet!!!
She has a four day sketch challenge going on. Today is day three. I have been having fun playing with the sketches and thought I'd share a couple of the cards that I have made for the challenges.
The first card is made with an adorable image from Our Craft Lounge called Hello Spring.
I used Paper Trunk Designer Paper, along with black and white Cardstock to create this card. I coloured lightly wiht copics, but used lots of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to bring out the bling in the whites of the flowers. SU Brads and some old old buttons complete this card.
I was THRILLED to go to my mailbox today to find a little package from Stamping Bella. I swear this is probably the shortest amount of time that any image has waited to be inked! I totally totally adore these HUGGABUG Stamps The main image is LOVE beetle, the sentiment from lovey Huggabug. Isn't she just WAY CUTE.............I smiled the whole time I was making this card!
I kept it rather simple, focusing on the image rather than using a lot of DP here. I used Real Red, Basic Black and Neenah white cardstock, with a smidge of Kaiser Craft Designer paper just for effort!!! Isn't the ribbon funky? I found that in the $$ bin at M's...........
I am hoping to complete the fourth and final sketch tomorrow...............Want to play along? Check out the info on Stamps and Smiles.......play all four challenges and you will be eligible to win all the stamps in the new release~!!
See you tomorrow with another card and a little more bla bla bla!!!!
