Stamp Ink Paper 103 Sketch Challenge

Happy Tuesday to you all! I am back with the Stamp Ink Paper design team today. I have a full morning of Summer School and Horses! Thank heavens the humidity and heat are subsiding. I am so glad we only have one more week of summer school because it is really starting to cramp my style. Mr Tucker is working at another location the next few days and I really want to get my craft on! Especially since I am bringing back my local Cards And A Cuppa Class I will make sure I add the class to my blog if you are local and interested!

I almost squealed out loud when I used the NEW Stampin' Up! Embossing Paste to make the Smoky Slate Bricks! All you have to do is mix a drop or two of the reinker into a small amount of your embossing paste!! You will want to be sure you rinse of your stencil rather quickly or it will dry and be there eternally! It was so easy to smooth over the stencil and dried in just a couple minutes! If you use it, be sure to do this step first. That way you know that it is dry and ready to go! When I had mine drying I quickly came up with my idea with the Oh So Eclectic Bundle! My Tranquil Tide leaves and Fresh Fig with Gold flower was just the right touch with some Metallic Gold Thread and the Metallic Assorted Sequins! The fabulous sentiment was cut 4 times... I initially had it cut 3 times in Fresh Fig and heat embossed in gold but it didn't quite pop so I added one more layer in Powder Pink! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! It is a fun and easy sketch for you all to play along with!

This great card is made with a fabulous color combination of Cherry Cobbler, Powder Pink ad Very Vanilla. I have a friend who wanted a wedding card so I had that idea in my head when I reached for the Colorful Seasons Bundle. My Kraft branch was heat embossed in clear and I also used the Cable Knit Sweater Dynamic embossing folder and the Gold Faceted Gems in the center of the flowers!

Thank You so much for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you come up with for our sketch this week!

OSAT All About Men Blog Hop

So sorry that I am so late with my post!! It is the One Stamp At A Time All About Men Blog Hop today and I had some severe weather go through last night and the lightning was right on top of our house... not sure it would have been the safest idea to be sitting at my desktop while that was all going on... even tried to do it from my phone to new avail!

Did you get to me by way of Justin Krieger?? If so I just loved what he came up with fro this month's hop!
I was so excited to dip into some new goodies from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. I finally got the dies for the Pocketful Of Sunshine stamp set that I got at OnStage Prize Patrol! I know for many of us Masculine Cards are a struggle but somehow I knew exactly what I was going to do.

My fun card started with the Dapper Denim pocket heat embossed with the stitching from the Pocketful of Sunshine stamp set then die cut with the coordinating framelits. I added the cute little Whisper White tag with "Dad" using Soft Suede ink from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set. The fun little fringe was created using the Burlap 5/8 Ribbon. I adhered this to my card using the Tear N Tape. The Classic Label stamped Happy Fathers Day was the perfect touch. My "Gold" studs were created with a Gold Sharpie on the Glitter Enamel Dots. A nice border of Dapper Denim with a piece of the Color Theory paper was just the right touch with my linen thread bow on the Hexagon embossed Kraft.

I wasn't sure what to do with my "project" portion for this hop! I stamped a set of note cards as seen above using the Wood Words Stamp Set that coordinate with card and fit into this lovely little wood crate!

Something OLD and Something NEW Blog Hop

Happy Sunday! I am back with the Creation Station Design Team blog hop for this first Sunday of June! Can you believe it is June already?? Did you already go shopping in the Annual Catalog?? We have had quite a busy week here at our house with a birthday, summer school, chores, horses and  of course the pool. So I have had a heck of a time getting into my groove!

Creation Station is hopping this month with the theme "Something Old AND Something New" The goal was to use something that was a returning in the Annual Catalog with stuff that is new in the Annual Catalog. Lets take a look at what I have come up with...

I wanted to show you how Dino-Riffic these little projects came out! I have used the No Bones about it stamp set with the Pick A Pattern Designer Series Paper. Adorable right?

The card is a base of Sahara Sand with a matte of Flirty Flamingo to coordinate with the strip across. I simply stamped the Dinosaur from No Bones About it and heat embossed his skeleton in Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder. The paper is from the Pick A Pattern DSP set that is new in the Annual Catalog. I accented this with some fun Glitter Enamel Dots and Crushed Curry Bakers Twine which are new as well!

This coordinating Mini Treat Bag was also made with the Pick A Pattern Paper and No Bones About It. It was the perfect little coordinating item to go with my card above.... I just love the way this all worked together! You can get a full list of my products at the bottom of my post!

Thank You so much for stopping by! Next on the hop is Dena Rekow you can get to her by clicking the Next button or if you are going backwards you can get to Jennifer Down by clicking Back!

Have a Dino-Riffic Sunday!!
