Sketch Challenge!

This weeks challenge at Stampin' Royalty is a sketch challenge! I took a little bit of liberty with the sketch, but kept the basics. But it gives you an idea of how you can take a sketch and make it your own! Use it as an inspiration! or you can translate it literally to your project if you are more comfortable that way. all in all, it is about creating something and having fun doing it!

For this card, i used Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive cardstock, and Rose Red Designer Seiries Paper. I punched out the flower using the biggest Scallop Circle punch, sprayed them with water, crumpled them up, then set them aside to let them dry.

I used the scallop trim punch for the 'ribbon', the Four Frames set to stamp the sentiment panel in Cherry Cobbler, stamped the Thank You in Basic Black from the Because I care set, punched it out with the decorative label punch, then punched out a frame in Cherry Cobbler. add a few pearls, a couple leaves, and a button, and you have a card!

For the Birds!

Hello, all! I have been away on vacation the last 2 weeks, but i am home safe now!

This project is for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Challenge, which features birds!

I made a scrapbook page of my little girl and me using My Digital Studio. Let me tell you how much i love this program! we got home on Sunday evening, and i needed to have a project for this week by that night. I went to my trusty MDS, and put this page together in about an hour. (actually, the one on the Stampin' Royalty page!) i did go back later and added/adjusted a few things, but all in all, it took me only about an hour and a half to complete this project! not bad! what i love about it is you CAN make adjustments, change colors around, change sizes, ect. Love that MDS!
