Just checking in quickly to share my take in this week’s Sketch Saturday challenge # 457.
I missed joining in weekly challenges like this since work life has been very busy for the last quarter. So happy to take part this week though.
I used a digital stamp from Some Odd Girl called Nerdy Chihuahua 🙂 So cute isn’t it? I colored him with promarkers and fussy cut him too. For the card base, I added some texture by embossing with Swiss dots embossing folder. The oblong and rectangular shapes were also diecut with stitching details.

Today I have the chance to play with a stamp set from Hero Arts stamp set that I have for so long now. I was looking at my stamp box and remember that I still haven’t used these flourish stamp ever. Sometimes all you have to do is look into your supplies and use whatever you have before buying new ones right? 🙂
I used a very minimal supplies on this card. Two ink colors, some sequins, a diecut Hello from Mama Elephant and rectangular stitched diecut and I’m done.
My card sketch inspiration is from Sketch Saturday, Sketch #429.

I had some extra time and what better way to use that than to create a card right?
I dig some of my patterned papers and older stamp set from Mama Elephant to make this card. It’s nice to make use of older supplies just because they are and will always be great to play with.
I did some rectangular shapes die cut and embossed the mid-sentiment with white embossing powder. For my image I colored them all with promarker and die cut them also with their coordinating dies.

I have been coloring my new gnome stamps from My Favorite Things and so happy to finally put them into a card. I colored the images and background with distress ink pads and I’m loving it.
I embossed the white card stock base with my favorite embossing folder with dots. I haven’t done any dry embossing lately 🙂 The background just mimics the dots patterned paper that I used in the strip.
I had a great time playing with my new stamps and trying out watercoloring more with distress inks. I only have few colors but plans to add a little more to the collection. It will be fun to play more with colors for sure.
I used the sketch from My Favorite Things, Sketch Challenge #291.

I feel sort of under the weather today so what would be a better way to combat the feeling is to make a fun and happy card.
Crafting is a way for me to relax so I made this super quick card using stamps that I bought in Michaels store way back when I visited Las Vegas.
I stamped the cutesy animals in the background, then colored 3 of the images in the set as highlights.
I used Pretty Pink Posh dies to cut my vellum tag behind the mini squares. So quick and easy. Feels much better after creating this card.

I had fun coloring these food set with promarkers. Except for the drink which I stamped directly on a cardstock, the pizza and ice cream were colored with of promarkers. I made them colored coordinated so it will look united in the overall card.
I used Paper Smooches Think Fast stamp set. I don’t have their coordinating dies so I fussy cut all the food items 🙂

Today I’m playing along Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Use your favorite technique and/ or product.
I love coloring and was practicing last night using Promarker alcohol markers to color my images. I used Paper Smooches We Adore You stamp set. The sentiment is a combination from two other stamp sets. So love Paper Smooches stamps and dies 🙂 my all time fave I may say.
I fussy cut the creatures and die cut the arrows, so love die cuts as well 🙂 Oh and the sequins makes me happy too.
I used a sketch from Sketch Saturday Week #365.
