While checking emails from one of my online stamp groups, Maria Cottrell mentioned that she had compiled a list of 21 ways to use your SU! Many Marvelous Markers!!  You can find her post along with examples at the Stamp Lounge!  That is the name of her blog!  She has some really neat ideas there!  If you’re like my, my markers kind of get neglected!  After spending that much on markers, you’d think I’d use them more!! 🙂

Until Next Time….Happy Creating!!!

SC138

The kids are back to school today after being home sick since the weekend.  I haven’t really felt well since last Thursday and even today, I don’t feel the greatest.  How come the kids bounce back so much faster??  Not Fair!!! 🙂  The first thing I did today was check out the sketch challenge on SCS.  Here is a copy of that sketch.Sc138

I only have one stamped image on my card.  I am still having fun with the new Basic Grey DP that I got at Archivers.  I just knew that this sketch would be perfect to use that paper on.

I started with a Chocolate Chip card base and just layered my DP with the Chocolate chip.  I added Gold eyelets to all the corners and popped the center image up with dimensionals.   The ink used for the center image was Regal Rose and Chocolate Chip.  The stamp was from the True Friend stamp set in the 2007 Holiday Mini.

Until Next Time….Happy Creating!!!

Another Sketch by Di

After completing that last card using a sketch by Di, I decided to go cruise her blog and check out the other sketches she has done.  I chose the following for my next card.Dihickman061307cardsketch  Of course I didn’t really follow it exactly but you can see some of the similarities!  I have had some wide ribbon sitting in my cupboards taking up space.  I really liked it when I bought it, but haven’t exactly used any of it!!  This is my creation made from Di’s inspiration! I turned my card the other direction.

Cardstock: Cool Caribbean, Pretty in Pink, White

Just a little note to let you know that I have updated my Stuff for Sale album in the right hand column.  I am finally selling off all of the old style ink pads that I have.  I even have some of the retired colors with ink refills and cardstock as well.  Just shoot me an email if you are interested in anything you see there.  If purchasing multiple things, I will combine shipping!!

Cutie Pie Friend…

Cutie_pie_friend_mrToday I opened my Cutie Pie DP from Stampin’ Up! Cambria has made some really cute cards with this paper.  I love the colors, so I figured I should get some!  That’s always a good reason right?

Sunday’s featured stamper was Melissa Wohler.  You can check out her blog at Sweetie’s Stamping!  I cruised through her SCS gallery and found this card and that’s what I used for my inspiration.
