Two Cards

Well today I have two new cards to share with you and then I have to run and do errands before the thunderstorms hit. The first card is for Lauren's blog we had a inspiration piece to use that was aprons hanging on the line. I wanted to make a card that used those colors along with the feeling of being light and airy.You can see the inspiration piece here When I finished with my card I felt something was was layers I always have layers on my cards although I love simple cards I am a pile it on type person.
I was so honored that last week I was one of the top five picked by Lauren to be featured on her blog(nothing like a pat on the back to get the creative juices flowing) You can see that card here. the card recipe is Owl $1.99 stamp from Archivers, Punched Flowers from paper I stamped and some Autum leaves flourish stamps.

I did this card for Splitcoast sketch challenge this week. I used one of the new CB folders and a stamp from the hot spot at Archivers. I was surprised what a clean crisp stamp you could get from this clear stamp .(sorry can't remember the company). I used my Bic makers to color the image .

My Time, My Creations, My Stampendence

This is my first attempt at a sketch by Lauren's and it was tons of fun. I loved the off setting of the squares made it a challenge but still easy enough to create without a lot of time. I used a clear $1 stamp and some BG paper added a little stickles for some added "Umph" and Voila a really fun card. Now all I have to do is get the nerve up to try one of Lauren's "Timeless Templates" This is one of two sketches today don't forget to take a peep at my Mojo Monday sketch.
Thanks for stopping by

It's hard to believe I got 2 sketches done today the first is my Mojo Monday sketch and the second is the My Time, My Creations, My Stampendence. The Mojo one was the most difficult because I was making a masculine card for my brother in law. Masculine cards always throw me for a loop because I always want to throw on some stickles and a ribbon. Because masculine cards are such a challenge for me I kept the paper simple and just used solid cardstock and CB embossing folders. The image is clipart and i used my scallop circle nestie for the center. The side is stamped with a flourish stamp. Don't forget to checkout my "My Time, My Creations, My Stampendence" sketch today.
