Fall Fest Meets Paper Pumpkin


Happy Monday! It's time for another Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge! Here is my sample for this week:


This week's sketch is another great sketch - so many ideas came to mind from one-layer to very detailed projects. I have to be honest with you, this color combination is not one I would have EVER dreamed up but it was the focus on a card front from the August 2014 Paper Pumpkin kit!

I planned to craft at a friends house and packed everything I needed...and when I unpacked I realized I left my paper at home!!!! Paper Pumpkin to the rescue (since I ALWAYS have a Paper Pumpkin kit in my car to work on - old or new!) I used the card base from the kit and some scraps of paper from my friend. Whew! So while this wasn't what I expected to design, I think it turned out all right.


Here are the card details:

  • August 2014 Paper Pumpkin kit pre-cut card
  • Mellow Moss (2-3/4" x 2-3/4") and Whisper White (2-1/2" x 2-1/2") card stock for the center square layer
  • Greeting stamped in Mellow Moss from Truly Grateful stamp set onto Melon Mambo card stock for banner (1/2" x 3-1/2") and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Squash/Pumpkin stamped in Crushed Curry and leaf stamped in Mellow Moss and cut with Fun Fall Framelits. I tied some Linen Thread around the stem of the squash/pumpkin for a little added acccent. I glued the squash/pumpkin to the banner.

Playground Project Life - Sketch Challenge

Happy Monday! It's time for another Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge! Here is my sample for this week:




This week I decided to go digital and use MDS! I LOVE this sketch! I think it would be perfect for a journal cover! Check out this week's sketch:



This project is short and sweet! Even though I did this digitally, you could totally replicate this project using actual paper. I thought this would be a great card to print out and have on hand to give to my kids when they need a quick pick-me-up note. I love you to the moon and back - I tell my kids that all the time! Check out the card details:

  • The card base is Island Indigo followed by a layer of DSP from World Spectacular. this paper is retired but never retires digitally!
  • There is a layer of Raspberry Ripple and Crushed Curry that has been "stitched" to the card front
  •  The focal point is an embellishment (or can be found as a card in the actual Playground Project Life Card Collection) and is matted with Raspberry Ripple card stock and I rounded the corners of the paper with the handy corner rounder tool in MDS
  • I also added a Pool Party button and some gray bakers twine that I recolored to Raspberry Ripple (another favorite tool of mine in MDS!)
It's your turn! We would love to see what you can create using this sketch! Head over to Mary Jo's blog listed below and enter your project using the sketch. Don't forget to check out all the other wonderful projects created by the design team this week!

Beauty of the Season ~ Sketch Challenge


Happy Monday! It's time for another Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge! Here is my sample for this week:




Check out this week's sketch:



I have been having so much fun playing with my holiday goodies! Can you believe the 2014 Holiday Catalog is almost ready to be released? You are going to be AMAZED this Thursday, August 28th!

You may have already seen this stamp set - Beauty of the Season. In fact, it was offered as a sneak peek stamp set for almost 7 weeks now.




Here are the card details:
  • Card base is Lost Lagoon
  • DSP is All is Calm Designer Series Specialty Paper (I love non-traditional paper for Christmas!)
  • I used Lost Lagoon ribbon to "divide" the top and bottom sections
  • I stamped the image with Black Stazon and colored in the bird with Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie markers. The tree limb is Smoky Slate. 
  • I cut the image with my Circles Framelits Die and for a little added dimension, without the extra layer, I sponged the edges of the circle with Smoky Slate ink.
  • I colored the words from the greeting in Cherry Cobbler and stamped each one separately so I could cut them out with the Banner Framelits. 
  • I cut off the tips of 2 toothpicks with my (retired) craft and rubber scissors and attached the banners to the toothpicks with glue dots and tied Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine around each "flag pole"

It's your turn! We would love to see what you can create using this sketch! Head over to Mary Jo's blog listed below and enter your project using the sketch. Don't forget to check out all the other wonderful projects created by the design team this week!
