Sketch Art

Stampin' Royalty's challenge this week is a Sketch Challenge!

Sketch challenges are always the easiest projects to do. this one came together pretty quick.I knew what i wanted to do before i got started, but built the colors around the patterned paper (which was a scrap, by the way!)
and there isn't even much on here that needs explaining. just embossing, and stamping, and punching out, and layering! i think i will make a bunch of these! 

Cardstock & Ink - Cherry Cobbler, Crisp Cantaloupe

Love is a Verb

It's Anything Goes at Stampin Royalty this week! 

i needed a love themed card and thought this would be a good opportunity to make one! 
The background panel was made with Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape, applied in diagonal stripes. i really thought it turned out cute. The banner was made with the Owl Builder Punch, the large eye part and the heart.
The main panel was done with Gold Embossing Powder, cut out with a Die, and then i sponged some color in the letters, then filled them in with Crystal Effects. 
I used Pink Pirouette and Strawberry Slush for the cardstock and ink

Picturesque Fall

 The theme at Stampin' Royalty this week is a Picture Inspiration! 

Ah, Fall...the colors....THE COLORS!! love fall colors and when i saw these images, i squealed! I want both of those decorations in front of my house, and it goes without saying that i also want that cake! ;o)

This card was made with the Lovely as a Tree set, which if you know anything about Stampin' Up stamps, you know that this set has been around FOREVER, and to be honest, i hope it STAYS around! i really like it, and it is very timeless.

I basically just made circles out of different patterns, textures, and finishes and placed them on the card in a design, and stamped the leaves in Early Espresso, then colored the leaves using my blender pen. and of course, i cut them out and put them on the card.
the main sentiment panel and mat for the card are both made with the Gold shimmery paper, but it is hard to tell in the pic. added a button, and voila!
