Crazy 4 Challenges - Sketch

It's the third Saturday of the month and that means it's sketch time with Crazy 4 Challenges.  I chose to make a CAS card with this fun sketch.
I used a Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Tasty Trucks for this quick card.  If you're not familiar with Sale-A-Bration, it's a Stampin' Up! promotion where you can choose free items with a $50 purchase.  I stamped the sentiment onto a word bubble from Karen Burniston's Accordion Rectangle.  I then used Elizabeth Craft Designs' Stitched Rectangles to cut the shape again.  I used Karen's Outdoor Edges to get the wave in the middle of the card; I love that little pop of green peeking through.  I used Daffodil Delight and Emerald Envy and an Aquapainter to color in the tacos.

Happy Stampin', 
Raquel

Age is only a number

I made this card for a co-worker who's having a birthday.  I had this stamp in my stash and thought it suiting for a women's birthday.....and she's an animal lover.
I used the Balloon Bouquet punch to punch out multiple colors of balloons.  I used a Journaling Pen to draw all the strings for the balloons.  The glittered washi tape was a Sale-A-Bration from last year.  I used Stitched Rectangles for the mat & the image.
 I kept the inside simple so there's enough room for all my co-workers to sign the card.  The finished size of this card is 5x9.

Crazy 4 Challenges - Organize your home day

It's a whole new year with Crazy 4 Challenges full of fun!  Today's challenge is about organizing your home and to create a card for a new home owner or something for the home.  I chose to try out a technique that I saw on Els' Technique Friday using both the positive and negative pieces of their peel-offs.


 I cut a piece of Red Metallic Shimmer Sheetz large enough to fit the flower peel-off.  Next, I added the black outline of the flower and then filled in some of the petals with the same flower peel-off using silver and gold.  I added glitter border lines around the card and finished it off with a peel-off sentiment.
Shimmer Sheetz sure are beautiful in person, but tricky to take a photo of without having a reflection of my camera.☺

Happy Stampin',

New Stampin' Up! Catalogs


The new Occassions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs are here!

Crazy 4 Challenges - Old Rock Day

It's Old Rock Day, I mean who knew?  I found out when Crazy 4 Challenges gave out the challenge for today.  The team was challenged to create something to do with a rock.  Could be a scene with mountains, Rock-n-Roll, stone style paper, a brick wall or a precious gem.  I knew I had the perfect die for a mountain scene - Outdoor Edges.  I had received a card with this sentiment and thought it would work with Cocoa the Horse.  The sun is setting, Cocoa is needing reading glasses, put out to pasture......ok enough right?

To follow along with the theme, I used the horse edge die from the Outdoor Edges set on the inside.  I used a black marker to trace around the sentiment and the horses to make them stand out more.
Happy Stampin',
