This is for the SCS card sketch challenge #186 this week. I started by selecting a stamp set that would complement the strip along the bottom of the sketch, so I picked out Double Line Doodles (retired SU!). I stamped the long strip first on Certainly Celery with CC ink, then highlighted the image with my uniball White gel pen and Old Olive marker. I layered that on Old Olive paper and using scalloped scissors, trimmed the edges down the length of the paper. Next I used another retired SU! item, the background paper (don't remember the name) and layered that on CC and Always Artichoke. The second panel is the SU! DS Print paper in Certainly Celery, layered on Old Olive. I stamped 'adorable' from Warm Words with Always Artichoke, 'cause she's adorable! The main image from the stamp set is stamped on Whisper White with Always Artichoke, then sponged with CC and OO. I then cut out the center if the image and featured a photo of Lily behind it (isn't she cute!). That is layered on CC and AA trimmed with the scallop scissors (I don't have the Nestabilities yet) and I put white polkadots around it with the white gel pen. I added Moss grosgrain ribbon under the image and attached it with dimensionals. That's it! Thanks for looking!!

Front of spinner
Back of spinner.
I used Whisper White card stock for the card body, then tied the wide black polka dot ribbon around it and tied it off with a bow. Sorry the photo is off. I punched the scallop circle punch in the bottom right corner. The spinner is the ladybug from Very Punny, stamped on WW with Basic Black, and colored in with my aqua painter and Real Red ink. The other side is stamped with the 'thank you' stamp from Short & Sweet, outlined with the real red marker. I added dots around the edge with the Basic Black marker. The image and the sentiment were punched with the 1 1/4" circle punch and layered together back to back with a piece of red thread between. On the inside of the card, taped the ends of the thread to the back of the front of the card and placed a Real Red piece of card stock and with a punched a 1 3/8 circle out of that. Added some white polka dots and voila'! Sweet and simple!
This one is for the SCS Color challenge CC175 and card layout challenge SC183. So Saffron, Almost Amethyst and Wild Wasabi. I have to admit, that this card is inspired by Markie's Mom at SCS. She makes the most beautiful cards, and always uses black and white polka dots. Check out her gallery, it's great!!!
I used the Simply Said stamp set, colored it with AA and SS and surrounded the image with Soft Sky using the aqua painter. The main image was layered on WW, AA and finished with Basic Black and i added the dots with my uniball white gel pen. The SS layer is SU! DP and the WW layer was Cuttlebugged with swirls. and bother are layered on Whisper White. I added the balck and white polkadot wide ribbon with a strip of Wild Wasabi Sticked ribbon down the center and added a knot with a mini glue dot. The main panel is AA on a card body of Basic Black and added white polkadots. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, i just used a few words from the stamp, along with some bling in the corner.
Thanks for looking!

This card was created for Mojo Monday and for the SCS Color Challenge 173. The color challenge was Wild Wasabi, Certainly Celery, and Purely Pomagrante. I haven't used this stamp set (All Natural) in ages so I thought I'd use it for this one. The background is Cuttlebugged and layered on PP and on a Basic Black card base (I used creative license by added that color to the combo). The WW panel is stamped with 'Script' and sponged along the edges. It's layered on PP and I added some brads that I colored black with Black Stazon. I used Cetainly Celery DP for the next panel and layered it on the PP also with Wild Wasabi sticked ribbon wraped around. The stamped pear image is done with Stazon so I could use my aqua painter to color it (using all 3 combo colors). I masked the image and stamped the 'Script' over it with CC and sponged the edges. It's layered on WW, PP & Basic Black. The sentiment is stamped with Basic Black, and I did the same technique as I did with the pear. I punched out the sentiment with the 1 1/4" circle punch and layered it on a 1 3/8" PP circle and scalloped WW circle. I added the polkadots with the Uniball gel pen.
