A good Sunday to you all! My Saturday didn’t turn out quite the way I had envisioned. I had breakfast with my friend Joe and that was very nice. I came home and started working on some projects and then my friend from work texted me to say that she couldn’t go to Manhattan. Bummer! I decided that it was way too nice of a day so I called my friend Louis and we went for a ride in the convertible and did some shopping. After, we had some gyros for dinner and they were delicious! So not a bad day after all. I will have to postpone my reviews for another time. LOL!
Today I have a double post, I don’t know where the week goes sometimes! It’s Freshly Made Sketches 100th Challenge! How great is that?!?! I have been playing along since sketch 38, so that 62 sketches! Pretty cool! For the 100th challenge they brought back the sketch from their very first one…
I went for a retro feel to my card with some new products to sort of pay tribute to the sketch. The base of my card is Midnight Muse Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the Delicate Details Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Crumb Cake to go across the lower half of the card. The tilted panel is a piece of Midnight Muse, embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed with a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe. For the greeting I used the new Cheers Single Stamp, again stamped in Midnight Muse and backed with Crisp Cantaloupe. I flagged a little piece of Midnight Muse to go across the top that mirrors the stamped part of the bottom of the greeting. An ornament from the Christmas Collectibles Stamp Set that I inked in Crisp Cantaloupe and punched out with the Christmas Ornament Punch completes the card. I really like the Midnight Muse and Crisp Cantaloupe paired with the Crumb Cake, I think it makes and interesting combo!
My second card today is for the ladies over at Just Add Ink! I thought the sketch was really cool and perfect for the Rev Up the Fun! Stamp Set…
My card base for this card is Whisper White Card Stock. The background is a piece of Smokey Slate stamped with some Gorgeous Grunge in Pacific Point, I rounded the corners with the 1″ Circle Punch. All of the images and greeting are from the Rev Up the Fun! Stamp Set except for the flag that is stamped with one of the Paper Pumpkin Stamps. The tire marks and dust are stamped in Basic Black and the car in Pacific Point. For the greeting I used some Versa-Mark and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. The Ovals Collection Framelits Dies are used to cut it out and some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. The images from the stamp set are fun and help to make a great masculine card that would work for any age.
Thank you, as always, for stopping by to see my post for Freshly Made Sketches 100th anniversary and Just Add Ink sketch challenge 179. It’s always great to have you check in and I hope that you enjoy your Sunday! 🙂
