A Sketch Stamp Off Challenge

Today is our day to have a Stamp Off Challenge with Buffy, Jackie and me.  I love our challenges!  We used to do it weekly but then life got in the way so we decided to go every other week.  This week we have a sketch challenge.

I decided to use a new stamp set and our Stampin’ Blends to make my card.

Have you tried the new Stampin’ Up! alcohol markers called Stampin’ Blends?  They are amazing.  They are sooo amazing that even I can color with them and you all know I am not a very good colorer!  They come in 12 Stampin’ Up! colors as well as Ivory, Bronze and a Color Lifter.  Each color has a light and dark shade that you use to make shadows.  They blend together so easily.

I also used a new stamp set called Color Me Happy which is available while supplies last.    There is a kit to go with this stamp set and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle.  The background was made using one of the new 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders called Ruffled.  These Embossing Folders make a deeper impression (I know it is hard to tell from the picture).

Now, let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie did with this sketch challenge.  I am sure you will be amazed.  They are both so talented!

A Color Stamp Off Challenge

Hello everyone.  It is time again for another Stamp Off Challenge.  This time we have a color challenge.  Here are the colors (which by the way are one of my favorite combinations):

I think this combination of colors is so bright and cheery.  Here is my card:

I used the stamp set called Colorful Seasons.  This is a great all around stamp set because it represents all the seasons.  There are snowflakes for winter, leaves for fall, flower for spring and a beach chair for summer.  It also has a set of matching Thinlits called Seasonal Layers.  It cuts out all the different snowflakes, leaves and flowers but my favorite part of this Bundle is the Adirondack Chair die.  It is just adorable (as you can see).

For the background I used one of the new Dynamic Folders. These folders  are amazing because they emboss a deeper, bolder pattern into the cardstock.   This one is called Ruffled.  It is supposed to look like ribbon but I thought it also looked liked waves.

Now, let’s go see what Jackie and Buffy made using these colors.  I know Jackie was not the fondest of this combination but I know she will make something awesome using them.
