AEI♥U Challenge 16--Sketch

Challenge 16 at AEI♥U Challenge is a fun sketch by Yana. Here it is.

And here's my take on it.

I used the gorgeous bloom from Petals and Stems--one of my fave Avery Elle sets--
and popped it up on a strip of Sorbet paper. I added some splatters from the
Brushed stamp set, and the gold embossed sentment is a freebie
that comes with your Avery Elle order. Love them!

Visit AEI♥U Challenge blog to see how the rest of the team interpreted the sketch
and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Saturday, September 27th.

This card marks the end of my term with AEI♥U Challenge.
I was truly blessed to work with an awesome design team and incredible stamps and dies!
Thank you, Jamie, for having me as part of the Avery Elle family. It's been a fun ride! ♥

CAS(E) this Sketch 93

Here's CAS(E) this Sketch 93 courtesy of former teammate Gayatri.

And here's my take on it.

I flipped the sketch because I wanted to use the new Be Jolly stamp set--
designed by Heather Campbell--and have the snowman facing into the card.
He was colored with Copics and I added a few details with some Distress Stickles
and a white pigment pen. The sentiment and snowflakes come with the set.

and join us if you can. Link up your card(s) by Thursday, September 25th.

Thanks for stopping by!

HOME is Where the Heart Is

Catherine Pooler has a new home for her gorgeous, redesigned blog and she's throwing a
Housewarming Party--and everyone's invited!

The party runs like a regular challenge with prizes from some awesome sponsors:
CASual Fridays, Clearly Besotted Stamps, Ellen Hutson, Hero Arts, Penny Black,
Pretty Pink Posh, Some Odd Girl, and a one year membership to Stamp Nation!

The theme for the challenge is HOME. Each card that you link up earns you three entries
and you earn another entry by commenting on and becoming a subscriber
to Catherine's You Tube channel.

Here's my card for the challenge.

I masked off a rectangle on watercolor card and sponged on some distress inks.
Using dies, I die cut a house, bird, and branches and assembled them on the card.
The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

Visit Catherine's blog for all the guidelines and details.
Catherine is also giving out a party favor to try Stamp Nation for just $1.

Go here for all the info on the trial for Stamp Nation and join the party!

Tag You're It! Challenge #6

Tag You're It Challenge #6 is this beauty, brought to you by Karin.

Here's how I was inspired.

Truthfully, I had the butterfly and branch in my scrap pile, waiting for a home.
I stamped the striped background, attached the die cuts, then stamped the Hero Arts sentiment
 and added the white enamel dots. I finished off the tag with some hand dyed rayon seam binding.

Visit Tag You're It to see the winners from Challenge #5, and how my teammates were inspired
by Karin's tag. Link up your tag(s) by Wednesday, September 24th.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
