Stampin' Queen's Sketch Challenge 6

I haven't been able to participate in the challenges the past few weeks - lots of personal/family things going on that have consumed a good bit of my time.  I was determined to try and get something stamped this week. 

A friend of mine is pregnant and her baby shower is this weekend.  So, I figured now would be a good time to get her card made.  Since I haven't stamped in awhile - I figured I'd use the Designer Paper to do most of my work. :)  The only stamping is the 'hello baby' greeting.  Yes - a bit cheating, but I stamped! :)

Hope you'll take time to join us this week!  If you do, be sure to tag your card with SQSC6 on any sites you post to and let me know, so we can leave you some comments.

Stampin' Queens Sketch Challenge

I'm part of the Stampin' Queens Design Team and today is our 1st Sketch Challenge.

I need to apologize for the horrible picture. I took numerous pictures, however, the white seemed to cause almost a glare. No matter how much editing I did - I couldn't get it to look any better.

Hope that doesn't deter you from trying your hand at the sketch! If you do play along - please use SQSC1 in your uploads and let us know, so we can check it out and leave some love!

Be sure to check out all the team members creations on the Stampin' Queens Sketch Blog -------------> HERE.

Looking forward to seeing everyone's take on the sketch!

Happy Stampin'

Another Stamp Club Project

This is another one of the club projects my girls made. I like how it turned out. We used the brayer to get the different colors on the background.

Added the twine for a bit of a rustic feel - along with the colors.

January Stamp Club Projects

Wow - it has been quite some time, since I've posted to my blog. Life took hold and I had put some things on the back burner. I still stamped with my club, however, posting to my blog was put off. I didn't have the time with everything else I had going on.

I'm trying to get back into posting again - I even updated my blog look tonight!

This card uses Baroque Motifs and was inspired by a card by Danielle Daws.

This card uses Always and was a CASE of a card by Angela Walters.

This card also uses Always and was inspired by Gwen Mangelson.

I'm not listing all the supplies here, however, if you want to know something specific - feel free to contact me. I'm just trying to catch up, so I'll get back to posting the specifics soon.

Happy Stampin',

Final July Stamp Club Project

This is the last card we made. Sorry for the blurry picture. I CASEd this card from another stamper - I loved how quick, simple, yet wonderful it was.

-- Stamped the image in Pretty in Pink first
-- Stamped off the black 2x and then stamped over the Pretty in Pink (slightly offset it)
-- Sponged Certainly Celery on the WW edges

Stamp Sets: Pocket Silhouettes
CS: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, WW
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Stazon Black
Other: Stamping Sponge
That's it for the club projects from July. Hope to have more to post soon!!
