Happy Thursday!

Hope you are having a great weeks so far? It's time to carve out some stampin' time with this weeks Inspired By Challenge....

Here is this weeks #IB184C inspiration photo....along with this weeks sketch....

My inspiration came from the penguins, the colors, the Christmas theme and the sketch.

Once again I was digging through my poor unloved stamps stash and came a cross a very old set that I received during one of my DT gigs. It's super adorable and it was perfect for this fun penguin challenge. 

The images were colored with Copic Markers. The background was created by dabbing Red Ink on a Stamping Block and misting it with water. Next I smushed it on the White CS and added some SU Gorgeous Grunge spots. At last I added these sweet Wooden Stars.

Now it's time to dig out your fun penguin stamps!!! Happy stampin' !!! ~SL~

Hello again...I'm back with my second card of the day. 

Now it's Tic Tac Toe Challenge time...

Here is this weeks #TTTC127 challenge board....

For this card I chose the middle column down - CAS, FREE AND TEACHER.

My CAS card design started out with a small 3.75" by 3.75" Kraft card base. Next I added a 3.5" White card stock. The apple images and matching dies are from an old Reverse Confetti Set called - All Apple. For my "free" option I added some Gold Halfback Pearls....voila.

Now, it's your turn to put a smile on a teachers face :) !!! ~SL~


Happy Thursday!

It's card making I'm showing off 2 cards on my blog...the first one is this morning for the Inspired By Challenge......

We are still having two inspiration photos to choose is my pick for this #IB183 challenge along this weeks sketch.... 


I was inspired by the flowers, the basket, the colors and the sketch.

I decided to ink up my brand new Summer Bliss Card Kit from The Stamp Market. The Market Basket is from The Greetery

Here is this weeks inspiration photo I chose to play with - #IB182C

My inspiration came from the "Mouse" theme and the colors.

I have been loving the super cute Mouse images from the Colorado Craft Company and could't resist getting myself one. I thought the Ice Cream Stamp and matching Die was just too adorable and perfect for this weeks "Mickey Mouse" theme. The background was inked with the SU Gorgeous Grunge. The DP is from Echo Park Paper Co. - Beautiful Life by Laura Passage. At last I added the Ribbon and the Button.

Hope you'll give this challenge a try....~SL~
