Sketchy Frenzy Friday

I missed last week for our sketch because I fell and ended up with an ankle sprain!  Ugh!  I only missed one day do work but trying to go up and down the stairs of my craft room was too much. Here's my card for this week's sketch. I knew immediately I had to have this set when I saw it! It's called Beauty of the Season. I used both the cherry cobbler Blendabilities and the crumb cake Blendabilities as well. This is done on whisper white cardstock stamped with a Memento tuxedo black ink pad. I used my oval framelits to cut out my image and also to create the cherry cobbler frame that surrounds it.  I accented the berries with Cherry cobbler dazzling details. The wood grain embossing folder was the one I used on the early espresso CS but I flipped it over and lightly sponged some whisper white craft ink over it to give it a bit of an aged look. Finally, I used burlap and cherry cobbler chevron ribbons that I clipped like a banner for the bottom and a little piece of early espresso taffeta ribbon at the top. Please come play along at
Have a great day!

Sketch Frenzy Friday

Here's my contribution for this week's Sketch Frenzy Friday blog. For this week, I once again picked holiday mini catalog goodies. I used the Wondrous Wreath stamp set and stamped it first in Pear pizzazz, then in Mossy Meadow and finally Cherry Cobbler for the berries. I used crumb cake cardstock as my card base and stamped the wood grain stamp also in crumb cake. The bow was cut from DSP in the holiday mini called Trim the Tree. It's festive and has great prints in it! I used Dazzling Details in Cherry Cobbler over the "berries" on the wreath.  Come play along with us at

Sketch Frenzy Friday!

There are so many great things from the new holiday mini catalog; I think I've spent a small fortune already! One of my favorite sets is called Winter Wonderland. It's a great photopolymer set with tons of pieces! I paired the stamp set with new All is Calm designer series paper and Washi tape. Everything coordinates so perfectly and the colors are so pretty!  The background cardstock is Soft Sky and I used whisper white for the stamped image pieces. The new Memento Black ink pad stamps the images so sharp and clear---I love using it! I used a blender pen along with the following ink pads: Crumb Cake, Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi and Rich Razzleberry to color in the snowman image. Then I took a retired Versamarker and iridescent ice embossing powder to get the image sparkly all over! The Blendabilities markers can color most anything so I used the cool Caribbean medium Blendabilities marker to color the three rhinestones in the corner. Please come and play along with us at: 
Have a great long weekend!

Sketch Frenzy Friday

Please head over to to play along with this week's challenge. Today for my card, I chose new holiday mini catalog goodies. I used the Letter Press Winter Stamp set and the snowflake image in Lost Lagoon then accented it all over with Dazzling Details. The designer paper is another find from the holiday mini called All is Calm. It's just beautiful and the colors are perfect for winter stamping cards, scrapbook pages and projects. I also used the Lost Lagoon taffeta ribbon from the holiday mini along with the rhinestone jewels and in color sequins from the annual catalog. It's very sparkly in person!  Please play along with the team and post your cards!
Enjoy your day,

Holiday Mini Sketch Frenzy Friday

I'm so excited because the upcoming Stampin'Up! Mini catalog is seriously the best one yet! The are so many great stamp sets and amazing papers, tools and accessories that I bought nearly everything in it! Here is my card using lots of the new mini goodies.  I used Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White and Garden Green cardstocks. That pretty designer paper you see is from the Festival of Trees DSP pack. I love it!! So many great patterns and the colors are right up my alley. I used the Mingle all the Way stamp from the stamp set of the same name. The pretty snowflakes and sequins come in a container full of sequins-both large and small silver ones and those beautiful little snowflake sequins too! I embossed the stamp with white ink and embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder. The stamp set and products can all be found in the holiday mini catalog which should be arriving in your mailbox very soon or you can contact me and I will get one right out to you!
Happy Stamping!
