Hello – Hello!

Time for another Blog Hop with my Global Stamping Friends! I love hopping with these talented demonstrators! This month’s theme is…can you guess from my title? Circles!! Let’s have some fun!

I saw this paper in my new All Is Bright DSP pack that I got last week and thought, “Oooh, elegant!” Plus, I have been drooling over the Beautiful Baubles stamp set and Detailed Baubles Thinlits ever since I saw it in the Holiday Catalog!! It is so gorgeous that I finally just had to order it! It just seemed so right to put the 2 together when they both came in the same box! WooHoo!

At first I was going to use black and white to keep the feel of elegance, but after making a card using a white base…it just fell flat. I won’t bore you with that card…

My hubster actually encouraged me to use the Basic Black cardstock base and give it another whirl…and Oh My Gosh! I think it came out lovely!! And elegant!! Which is what I wanted in the first place!

Want to see it? Here it is:

I am pleased with how it turned out! You can even see the Wink of Stella Glitter Brush in the light that is on the “wreath” around the ornaments! That was a lucky picture! I also added the Wink of Stella to the Whisper White sentiment circle, but you can’t see it in this picture. The ribbon already had sparkle in it…probably why they named it Shimmer Ribbon! 😉

What do you think? Did I hit the “elegant” mark on the nose, or what!? It definitely turned out better than the first one or the Turkey I was considering making, but thought I needed ovals for the feathers instead of circles…who knows, maybe I will still make one. It is November after all! LOL If you want instructions on how to make this card, just leave a comment below and I will get them emailed to you. Thanks!

SU! S’mores!

Hello! Happy Monday!

Worked on some scrapbook pages for my sister’s Yellowstone gift album this weekend! Used sketches from some challenge sites. It was very fun and motivating!

Again, I covered faces with vellum because they don’t want their full faces online. Have to honor that. You can still see what I have done! I had not gotten my Outdoor/Camping papers out of storage yet, so I went with brighter colors from the Project Life travel set from SU! and some stamps from the Under the Stars retired set.

So, here is the sketch +3 that I used for this scrapbook page. I had to pick 1 item from each column at the bottom of the sketch to add to my sketch. I chose Glitz, Hashtag, and Indigo.

Here is my version of this sketch:

1480361247312

I used some Wink of Stella on the fire, and the marshmallows. Although it doesn’t show very well on this picture, darn it. I Used an Indigo glitter marker to draw the border around the red cardstock and the white polka dot banner. And, I used the hashtag with my S’mores title. I really like the way it turned out! May have to do the same page in my own album!

Enjoy!

Blessings, June

 

PS. As I finished this page and was going to sleep, it occurred to me that I had seen another challenge earlier called 3 of a Kind…and there are 3 s’mores on this page…so I will enter it for that as well. Fancy that!
