1st DCWV Stack-A-Holic Challenge for 2015

I finally had time to work on a challenge!  Actually, I didn't have much time to spare; but one of my goals for 2015 is to take a few steps away from work each day and do something for myself.  Those of you who run your own business most likely understand how difficult that can be to achieve!

For this challenge, I created a quick card using a new stack I picked up while out shopping with my Mom.  DCWV's Songbird stack.  Here is a picture of it:



And here is the sketch:



And here is my card:

Mojo Monday 290

Here is the Mojo Monday #290 sketch:


And here is my card.  I used papers and accessories from Colorbok's Antique Paperie line.


Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Travel/Cityscapes

I forgot to enter my card for this challenge!  Anyway, the theme for the challenge last week was Travel/Cityscapes.  Here is the card I made:




I used the cityscape stamp from Jillibean Soup's "You Move Me" set, the sentiment is from TPC Studio's "Hot Air Balloon Collage" set and Artisan paper from Pink Paislee.

Mojo Monday #282

Better late than never!  Here is the sketch for Mojo Monday #282:

 
I'm still not brave enough to go for the round card.  I made a square card and used paper from DCWV's La Creme matstack and heat embossed a "thank you" stamp from Fiskars.  The branch is a Sizzix die and the circles are Spellbinders dies.


OWH Sketch Challenge #162

I love Operation Write Home sketches.  The measurements are always provided for an A2 card size (this is the preferred card size to send cards to the troops).

Here is this week's sketch:


This week, I used 9to5 paper from October Afternoon.  The oval is from Jenni Bowlin Studio and the "thanks so much" stamp is from Fiskars.  The flowers and pearls are both Recollections.

OWH Sketch Challenge #161

Wow!  I can't believe it's been over a month since I posted.  Work has really been keeping me busy!

Here's the sketch from Operation Write Home for this week:


And here is my card:


I used paper from my Simon Says Stamp March 2013 Card Kit, Lawn Fawn's "Daphne's Closet".  The "Moochas Gracias" stamp is from the "Farm Fun" collection at Jillibean Soup - I stamped with Versafine, heat embossed it and then colored with Smooch pink to add a little sparkle.

OWH Sketch Challenge #154

I'm late for this Operation Write Home challenge. I actually did my card last week; however, I forgot to post it.

Here is the sketch:


And here is my card:


I used paper from DCWV's Mariposa stack and fussy cut the butterfly from the stack. The butterfly looks too much like a bug to me...if I had to do it again, I would choose something different.

OWH Sketch Challenge #153

It was so relaxing to finally have a chance to get creative in my office today.  I loved this sketch from Operation Write Home and it was a great excuse to put away the Christmas papers and pull out some Valentine's Day stacks.

Here is the sketch:



And here is my card.  As you can see, I turned the sketch.  I used paper and a sentiment from Making Memories J'te Adore collection, a heart embossing folder and some red/white polka dot washi tape.

Super Sketchy Sunday - Day 270

Here is a challenge from 365 Cards.  This is the sketch for Day 270:


And here is my card:


I used World Traveler paper by Teresa Collins, stamp embellishments from Making Memories and ribbon from Websters Pages.

Sunday Stamps Color Challenge SSC25

This is another new challenge for me.  I finally had a few hours to make some cards and loved finding some new places for ideas.  This one is the Sunday Stamps Challenge.

Here is the sketch.  Well, not really a sketch.  This one is a color challenge so the sketch has the colors to use in the card.


And here is my card:


I used a Simon Says Stamp die for the presents.  The paper is from Basic Grey's "Aspen Frost" Collection.

Paper Players Challenge #123 - Jaydee's Sketch Challenge

This is the first time I have entered the Paper Players challenge.  The sketch is clean and simple.


Here is my card.  Since it was already out on my desk, I used paper from the "Peaceful" collection by Authentique.



Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #268

Here is the sketch for this Mojo Monday challenge:


And here is the card I designed.  I used Authentique "Peaceful" paper along with some Authentique "Peaceful" elements and Prima snowflakes.



My Favorite Things Stamp Club Sketch November 21

Here is the sketch for last week's MFT Challenge:


And here is my card.  I used paper from MME's Santa Claus pad and some K&Company stickers.


Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Dawny's Sketch

Here is the sketch for this challenge from Simon Says Stamp:



And here is my card.  Nothing fancy.  I used paper from DCWV's Heirloom Christmas Stack and the flowers are Prima that I just ordered from Simon Says Stamp.


Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge #148

Here's the latest sketch challenge from Operation Write Home:


Here is my card.  I used some leftover paper from my Simon Says Stamp Festive Holiday Set.

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #265

This was another round or square challenge.  Here is the sketch:



Since the square sketch is more in my comfort zone, I made this:


I used paper from DCWV's Mariposa stack.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.

Have a great weekend!

Saturday Card Sketch Challenge with Kimber

The Saturday Card Sketch Challenge with Kimber at Two Peas in a Bucket:


Here is my submission.  I used paper scraps from the DCWV Autumn Medley Mat Stack and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.  I heat-embossed the sentiment with bronze embossing powder from Inkadinkadoo.  The flowers and pearls are both from Recollections.

Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #262

Here's today's sketch for the challenge:


I flipped the sketch and made this card using paper from the DCWV Autumn Melody Matstack.


DCWV October Stack-a-holic Challenge

Here is the sketch for this month's DCWV Stack-a-holic Challenge:


Along with following the sketch, another requirement is to use DCWV paper.  The paper I used is from the Autumn Medley Matstack.  I totally copied the example on their blog and used paper from an old book to make the center flower (except I inked the edges with some Tim Holtz brown distress ink).  Initially, I added a couple leaves like they have on the sketch; however, they took too much away from the pretty paper so I removed them.  Happy fall!
