Flowers and Lace

I’ve had some requests, so will start posting samples here from some of my classes and friends creations. This week we used Grateful Bunch stamp set, Botanical thinlits, Gorgeous Grunge and water coloring to create an eclectic card.

If you would like to have your card featured and don’t have your own blog, contact me via ”” for information on featuring your work. All work must have a watermark with your name, copyright with company name of stamp images, and your blog if you have one.

It’s PATRIOTIC Month!!

New Sketches Every Month!!

We’re starting off with PATRIOTIC MONTH in July 2012

Beginning this month we have a NEW Guest Stamper, Andrea Ewen from the Jersey Shore!

I fell in love with her Birthday Wishes card and asked if she would like to be featured to start us off with a Patriotic Challenge. She graciously accepted. I took her fabulous card and made a similar sketch for everyone to try. Now you don’t have to use HEARTS, STARS  and Rhinestones, or the same stamps. We’d like you to use Stampin’ Up! stamps, but if you don’t have any, please create a card with a Patriotic theme following the sketch using stamps, punches, lace, embellishments, papers, whatever you have!! You can include Military memorabilia, photos, Flags, or anything to promote the Patriotic theme.

Andrea created her card for a challenge on Splitcoaststampers. If you’d like more information on what she used to create her card, just click on her name and go to her website for details.

You can use current OR retired Stampin’ Up! stamps and accessories.

Here is the SKETCH I created for the FIRST Patriotic card challenge.  I used My Digital Studio software to create the sketch. This shows how you can use the Stampin’ UP! products for a similar card! Now it’s YOUR turn to create your OWN card and enter it in the linky at the bottom of the post. The linky will stay open for 30 days.

At the end of the month our Design Team members will pick a winner for the month.

Here is the sketch for a Scrap book page. You can use this sketch for a page, or the above sketch for a card, or create TWO projects!!  Remember to use a PATRIOTIC theme with this sketch!!

Here is the TAG SKETCH

So now you have all THREE sketches to work with!! Start Stamping!!
