This is my creation for Shelli's blog (of Stampin' Up fame). For this challenge she has asked to create something with Halloween in mind. My card contains new and old stamp sets from Stampin' Up. I used 'Just Flying By' and 'Upsy Daisy', and when you look at the witch on the broomstick you'll see that there's a few characters missing. To get this to work I inked up the parts of the stamp I wanted and using my stampamalineruperthingy to get the image you see on the card. I really enjoyed this challenge, because it's not often I make Halloween cards.
Well here we are this week with a new sketch challenge from 2Sketches4You (awesome sketch again). This sketch really had me thinkin', because I liked all the samples from the design team which used acetate. I wanted to use acetate on my card and luckily I had a bit that fit the card. It's hard to see in my pictures, but its there. Enjoy!
The daisy image (on the old olive) was stamped using Versamark. I was going to use celery, but it turned out to be too dark.
I've just finished this weeks sketch challenge from 2 Sketches 4 You(layout for the challenge above). I don't make too many square cards so I had a ton of fun doing this card, especially with my sock monkey set. I used stamps from five sets, some old some new and some cheap dollar store stamps. The card is quite busy, though I think it turned out just fine. I hope you all like, enjoy!
Today I found out from some kind comments on my blog that my card was chosen as one of the Fab Five cards this week. Congrats to Kristen, for her card was picked card of the week. Thanks to Laura (awesome sketch by the way) and Kazan for picking my card. This is so awesome, Fab Five, I like it it sounds like a super hero group. I know I'll be Captain Crafter defender of paper crafters (ouch my head is swelling, hehehehe), oh wait I am Captain Crafter (LOL). I'll definatly do more sketch challenges at 2Sketches4You.

I'm quite impressed with the sketches from 2 Sketches 4 You, they're very uniquely drawn which adds a hip style to the blog. This is the second time I've participated in their challenge and I'm glad I did, it's a lot of fun. Also, this is the first time I've used rub-ons, which was a real life altering experience. Yeah, right!!! I guess there's a first for everything. If you have a chance take a look at 2 Sketches 4 You.

I was having a hard time creating this card the other day, because I was trying to do something new. Well I think I came up with something new or at least I've never seen a layout like this before. Take a close look where the two coloured pieces of card meet in the middle. I used my new scalloped edge punch from SU then I put the scalloped edges together which made diamond shapes where they met. I really like this look and I know I'll use it again because it something different. Give it a try and let me know what you think of this technique.
If you haven't checked out the new 3-d Design Challenge site then what are you waiting for???? The very first challenge is to do a 2-4-6-8 box, easy, yeah the box maybe. Designing what's going on the box not so easy. So here's my creation..............
