Flashback Friday!

We are celebrating World Card Making Day ALL MONTH long at Sketch N Scrap!  Here is this week's Flashback Friday sketch by me:
I loved this sketch so much I made 2 different versions of cards using it. 
Version #1:
Version #2:

Supplies Used: Cardstock: Stampin' Up Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie & Gable Green; Patterned Paper: Pebbles Inc., Sticker: Pebbles, Inc.; Stamps: Stampin' Up; Ink: Stampin' Up Basic Black
These papers and stickers are part of my 100 patterned papers challenge! I am SLOWLY using up the papers in my stack!  I have always loved these papers but just never had the right project/layout for them, so I designed a sketch to help me use them up!  I only have scraps left now!  I just love these bright cheery colors and the use of the quote with a sentiment is such a nice look!  We still have one more sketch in honor of our World Card Making Day celebration all month long, so check back for the final sketch next Friday.  This month seems to have flown by, I have thoroughly enjoyed making so many cards and now my stash is a lot bigger so no more last minute card making for me for awhile. All my friends/family will hopefully get their birthday cards on time!   Make sure and check out all the wonderful inspiration on the Sketch N Scrap blog by our wonderful DT and our guest designer, we hope you will join us and play along with one or more of our sketches this month!  Happy creating,!

Sketch N Scrap Card #84

I am having such a great time making cards this month!!!  We have a really fun sketch for you today as our last sketch of the month (gosh, where did you go October?!) at Sketch N Scrap.  This amazing sketch is by Heather:
 And here is my take on the sketch:

Supplies Used:  Cardstock: Stampin' Up Very Vanilla & Rose Red; Patterned Paper: American Crafts;
Sticker: Amy Tangerine American Crafts; Ink: Stampin' Up Soft Suede; Stamps: Stampin' Up Gorgeous Grunge
I love how this card turned out! I had already made all the Halloween cards I needed for this year so decided to just do an everyday "how ya doing" type card.  Sometimes it's fun to surprise a friend with a just because type of note/letter!  I have had this sticker for years just sitting around and same with the papers so it was nice to use them up!  I was a bit unsure if I like the stamping or not but decided it's suppose to look random and grungy (which isn't my usual style) and I just glued it down and went with it!  Sometimes I think I am to picky and judgmental about how things turn I just decided it might grow on me a bit after soaking in the grungy look and come to find out it did and now I really like it lol!  So don't be to shocked to see more of this style card in the future!  Make sure and head over to the Sketch N Scrap blog to check out all the inspiration from the design team this go round, there is PLENTY!  I will be back tomorrow with our Flashback Friday sketch as we celebrate World Card Making Day all month long this month, so tune back in for even more card fun tomorrow!  You still have until October 31st to play along with us at Sketch N Scrap, so make sure and join in the fun!  I can't wait to see what you create!

Card Sketch #83

I hope everyone is enjoying some wonderful Fall weather!  It is still a bit warm here but a cold front is on it's way!  We have a new card sketch up at Sketch N Scrap today.  Here is the sketch by Mandy:

And here is my take on this fun sketch:
Supplies Used:  Cardstock: Stampin Up: Crumb Cake, Soft Sky, & Basic Black; embossing folder:
Stampin'  Up; watercolor paper: Stampin Up; Ink: Stampin' Up: Soft Sky, Basic Black; washi tape:
Stampin' Up; linen thread: Stampin' Up; Patterned Paper: Crate Paper Flea Market; stamps: Stampin' Up Natural Beauty, sentiment- Lisa Bearnson kit
I think this sketch has endless possibilities.  Unfortunately I needed a sympathy card recently and I thought that these colors were so soothing yet elegant along with the dry embossing.  I had fun breaking out my neglected watercolor brushes and watercolor paper and am happy with how it turned out!  I know you will be blown away by all the inspiration from the DT members at Sketch N Scrap, so many different occasions and takes on the sketch you have got to go check it out HERE!!!!  Make sure and join us this month for a chance to win a fun prize!  Happy creating!
