SSS216...My Friend

It's another Saturday and we are officially into Summer. Yet, I am soooo ready for Winter. It is also time for another Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge. The sketch this week is a nice simple one. Perfect for using up some card stock scraps. Which is what I did.

I used a Whisper White card base. I stamped the poppies image from the Precious Poppies set several times along the top of the card and then layered the pattern paper pieces along the bottom. I also stamped the poppies on some white scraps and cut out the open flowers. I attached them with a small glue dot in the center so the edges of the petals are loose and slightly raised for dimension. I cut the tag out with a Silhouette cut file and stamped Friend, also from the same stamp set onto the tag. I tied it onto the ribbon with some baker's twine and attached a little safety pin.

I would love to see what you make with the sketch this week. Head over to The Sweet Stop Sketch blog to get the details and to see what the rest of the Sugar Babies made.

SSS215...She Shall be Praised

Happy Saturday everyone! I am currently enjoying some fun camping time. I was able to get a little stamping in this week while camping when it wasn't raining. I made the card for The Sweet Stop Sketch this week during one of those nicer days.

This week we also have a theme: "It's A Girl Thing!" I don't have a lot of girly stamps, but I thought this verse from the Precious Poppies set was a perfect "girly" verse. I used some pattern papers from my stash. I cut the scalloped banner, ovals and "button" with my Silhouette. I used the cool Basket Weave embossing folder from Darice that I just picked up last Friday. I love that textured pattern and will be using it a lot. I tied it all together with some twine and lace trim.

I would love to see what you can do with the sketch this week. Get your girly supplies out and get stamping. Check out all the details and see what all the other Sugar Babies did with the sketch and theme over at The Sweet Stop Sketch blog. Then upload your project over on The Sweet Stop Sketch blog.

Stampin' While Campin'

I brought some of my stamping stuff with me camping. I'm hoping to find some of my mojo here in the woods. :) I made this card on Sunday and finally have a chance to share it here.

The base is a cut file from the Silhouette store. I also found the ribbon slider cut file there. I used some older stamps from Stampin Up for the sentiment and the doodle stamping on the inside. I'm not sure where the pattern paper is from. I had that in my stash.

Stamps: Doodle This, Lots of Thoughts (SU, retired)
Paper: Whisper White, Groovy Guava, Calypso Coral (SU)
Ink: Island Indigo (SU)
Other: Ribbon (Michael's), Silhouette Cameo, small yellow brads

SSS214...God Makes it Possible

Happy Saturday! We have another fun sketch here at The Sweet Stop for you. I had a lot of fun with this one. I used some great textures to create an uplifting card.

I used some of my favorite Sweet N Sassy stamps on this one. The sentiment I used from the Be Encouraged set is one of my favorites. I am so glad that the God I serve does not have limits. For texture I used a couple of embossing folders. I also bought some thin adhesive backed cork the other week that I used for the card. I stamped the chevron pattern from Grunge Borders with Early Espresso ink. The new Stampin' Up ink works so well on the cork. I will be making some more cards in the near future with this cork. I also found some awesome pattern paper from Hobby Lobby the other week that I used as my jumping point for the colors and theme. The tag and it's elements are from the free Silhouette cut file this week. I will be entering this card in their challenge this week as well. I just thought the tag was perfect for the focal image of this card. I used a small crocheted flower made by me. I am addicted to making these little flowers. They are so much fun to make.

Stamps: Grunge Borders, Be Encouraged {SNSS}
Paper: Marigold Morning, Buckaroo Blue, Lucky Limeade, Early Espresso {SU}, Pattern Paper {Hobby Lobby}

SSS213...Happy Birthday Friend

I've made a card that is a little different from my norm this week for The Sweet Stop Sketch. I wanted to use some new colors and am challenging myself to make cards without using pattern paper. This is what I came up with.

I used my Silhouette Cameo for a few of the elements of the card. Cutting the center piece with the smaller square cut-out was easy with the Cameo. I also cut the mat pieces and the funky green border. I used a few different embossing folders for texture and the chevron stamp on the main piece. Love Chevrons!!!

Supplies List
Stamps: Grunge Borders, Mini Tags & Sentiments {Sweet N Sassy Stamps}
Paper: Crumb Cake, Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Lucky Limeade & Whisper White {Stampin' Up!}
Ink: Crumb Cake, Island Indigo {Stampin' Up!}
Other: Silhouette Cameo, Gears & Honeycomb embossing folders, clip, green ribbon, Island Indigo Baker's Twine

Now head over to The Sweet Stop Sketch blog to see what the rest of the Sugar Babies made with the sketch this week and join us by making something with the sketch and linking it up.
