Sympathy card-STVSC5

I had to make a sympathy card this week and was able to use the sketch challenge on the StampTV.

I used Inkadinkadoo-doodle flowers and copics for this. I raised some of the flowers so they popped of the card. It may be hard to see that from the photo.

Christmas Card Challenge week 17 and Bella Sketch Challenge 73

Another freebie week on Sparkles Blog.
I just got a few new whippersnapper stamps, so I put one to use.
I also use the BSC73 on SCS to help me get these cards done.

CPS and An Udder Birthday!!

Another challenge I was able to complete.
I found this sketch challenge over on the CPS blog.
There sponsor is The Angel Company stamp and I am lucky enough to have a few really cute ones.

Go Green- SC221

The sketch challenge at Splitcoaststampers comes out each Wednesday.
I choose to use my new whipper snapper stamp to make a bright and cheerful card.
The stamp is called Gary goes green, I also stitched around 3 or the four layer. I made Gary pop by adding foam tape to only his body and tail area. It may be hard to see but he looks three dimentional. I only wish I han grren thread to sticth with, I think it would have looked much nicer.

MoJo Monday Week 79

This week I was able to finish a few cards using challenge sketches found on various blogs.

Here is the card I made for MoJo Monday.

I used my new Ketto stamp from Stampingbella. Her name is Charlotte.
I also used Basic Grey paper, Momento Ink, Copics and my cuttlebug to emboss.

Christmas Card Challenge week 16

This week Sparkle is busy with her new house.
She set no rules for this week's challenge. I almost skipped this week, but thought if I skip this week, then I'll want to skip next week too.

So here is something I put together with a Bella.

It may be hard to see, but the Bella is raised , thre is liquid applique on the hood, cuffs, and boots, with glitter a top that. I also used my cuttlebug dots on the background cardstock.
