What to do when your having computer issues.. Stamp of course! So that's what I am doing while I figure out my issues with my laptop once more lol... I am on my husband's computer so it might take me a little longer to post but I WILL try my best to keep it going.
Now on to my little card I made. Since I was feeling in a quiet mood I thought these colors were prefect to play with over at Color Throwdown:
I'm always up to the challenge aren't you? so this is what I came up with!
I do love my textured plates and wanted to try something so I stamped the flower from Inspired by nature with the colors for this week's throwdown. I actually like the effect it gave. What do you think?
I matted the main image with Bashful Blue and then a piece of Vellum and then used my Pixie Pink Marker to color the edges and to finish it off added two little gomments and brads. I think this card would be prefect for any occasion.
As always thank you so much for stopping by.
I am still trying to learn how to work around w/my husband's computer. SHHH I had to download editing software so I work w/my cards! lol

Hope you are having a wonderful week so far. So this AM when I went to check out the Sketch of the week over at Mercy she had this to play with:
Then I got this idea what if I change that square into a circle? Then I thought well this would be prefect for my Technique Tuesday.
Also how I got the title of my post today I really think sketches are a wonderful source of showing what you see when you use one. As I did with my first card!
This is one of 2 of the cards that I made inspired by this sketch :
I had fun making this card as can you believe Halloween will soon be knocking at our door! Do you see those buttons.. Those are SU you know.. YES THEY REALLY ARE... actually I got the idea from Andrea.. She took some buttons and embossed them and that's just what I did! Those buttons actually were stashed because they were from our last IN Colors well NOW they became Halloween buttons! Ha...
See my Witch's little sign that's a little twig there I made for her sign I'm working on my samples for my class and one of my albums has twigs so I just use a tiny piece for this card. I really do love this Cast-A-Spell Designer Paper it has so many beautiful prints.
Now after looking at this card I said OK let me try to make a card to match that sketch and since with 1 piece of cardstock you can get 2 cards I thought I just MUST! lol
Here is my 2nd card :
So I had left over pieces from yesterday cards and came up with this. I decided to pull out another of my stamps that I really do love, can you ever make a wrong card with this set? I THINK NOT! I embossed the flower and on the top I decided to add some dazzling diamonds. If you haven't noticed by yet with my cards YES I love my Signo Pen I just love to doodle! lol..
For this sentiment I went for my Trendy Trees (which I am using for other cards right now.. I told you I could never just stamp 1 card at a time! lol) and thought it went perfect don't you think?
Well I hope you enjoy the rest of your day and as always thank you for stopping by!

I really had fun making these creations because as my cards from yesterday I used the same elements for all 3 cards. This really is a challenge for me as I always end up with 3 0r 4 projects by the time I finally complete 1 card. hehehehe....
For this card I used another Sentiment from the set : God's Blessing but keep the foundation the same as Chat's.

Here is the Sketch they had for today :
So now you see which Big Shot Die I'm drooling over? The beautiful Flower Daisies #2 (114520) OH how much fun is this !! I think I could sit here and just cut these out all day!
In the middle of me "working" I took time to play as there are some awesome sketches going on this week!
I wanted to do a Fallish card because if you are anywhere near New York you will be feeling like me muggy and hot! lol So I did this card to think of my favorite season to come!
I hope you can see that I used a textured Plate to emboss the Kraft Cardstock(102125) which is really fun because it gives an extra embellishment. I am also proud of myself as I went into my stash of Designer Paper and actually cut into yet another package that I have been saving which is Flock Together(114018) and I used again Cast-A-Spell(115677) isn't that fun bet you would have never guess that one huh!
As always I thank you for stopping by and enjoy your day!

Tuesday, August 11, 2009
This card was actually one of my General Swaps I made for Convention. I was going crazy w/this little card because I wanted to make it so it would be Convention worthy! lol... I think I did because this was the one gals were grabbing for and it made me very happy :)
The Technique that I am focusing today is the "Spotlighting" Technique as you can see I choose a couple of the snowman from the Hostess Level 3 Set : The More the Merrier which I LOVEE!!! It is so much fun!
It may look a little time consuming especially when you say hmm I think I will make 30 of these! lol... But really what took the longest was punching out the "spotlights" and matching them up wasn't really that hard... and I colored them in while I watched movies on Netflix! lol...
So give it a try its really a cute and fun technique that makes your card pop!
As always thank you so much for stopping by!
