Hello and Welcome to another Sketch Frenzy Friday.....This weeks Sketch is brought to us by Stacey 

It's a nice layout, I like the elements in this. I chose to use the set Wondrous Wreath from the Holiday mini catalog, and boy is there ever a lot going on,on this card. :) 


I started with a base of Cherry Cobbler, added a layer of Whisper White that I had embossed with the Large Polka Dot Textured Impressions embossing folder. I then cut out a banner from the Banners Framelits and embossed it using Cherry Cobbler ink with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions folder.With the wreath stamp set I had also gotten the bundle which came with the matching framelit set. LOVE IT! So I stamped my wreath in Wild Wasabi ink and layer stamped with Old Olive ink...using the framelits I cut my wreath out as well as the Joy and the Bow image ( the bow was cut out of DSP) For the berries I used Cherry Cobbler ink layered with crystal effects and sprinkled with dazz diamonds glitter, layered them all together added some demensionals on the back of the wreath to pop it up a bit, also added a couple buttons from the Nordic Designer Buttons collection to finish it off.  So there ya go. Hope you enjoy this weeks submission, as always you can participate with this weeks sketch by uploading your version to the blog Here have a good day and see ya agin next week! THANK YOU!

Welcome to this weeks Sketch Frenzy Friday! This weeks sketch was all about triple stamping. Well that's the look anyway! :) Triple layers. I chose the stamp called Blended Bloom. I stamped my main image and colored it in with Blendabilities and then just lined stamped the same image around my main and left it at that. LOVE this look. I used a stamp from Flower Patch for my sentiment. added a few single sequins from the gold sequin ribbon, all done on Whisper White card stock, layered with Cherry Cobbler. Hope you enjoy this weeks challenge. Don't forget to give this fun technique a try and as always post to the blog Here
Have a great week everyone. Thank you for stopping by.

Blended Bloom

Tried my hand at some Blendabillities markers. I like these markers, but they do take some practice. Can't wait to get some more colors! I just love Stampin'Up! Products

HAPPY FRIDAY....and Welcome to another Sketch Frenzy Friday post! 
I'm really excited about being able to FINALLY share this card. Have you ever had a card or creation that you complete and think DAMN, that looks good??? 
For me this weeks submission was just that! LOL 


So this is the sketch for this week....brought to us by Kim Innis, pretty fun right?? 
I like it because it really left the door open for some great possibilities. 


So this was my take on it. Not sure why but the Early Espresso color was calling to me. Then while I was flipping through the great pattern papers in the Trim The Tree DSP stack I found this great tree pattern in none other than Early Espresso. So I went with the Festival of Trees stamp set and just LOVE the way this came out. I stamped the images in Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow, and heat embossed the sentiment in white. Used a little mossy meadow for the layering and finished it off with some gold sequin ribbon. Did I mention I LOVE it? LOL 
Okay so that's my submission for this week....Hope you enjoy it. Don't forget you can always partake in our SFF by making a card using this weeks sketch and posting it to our SFF blog HERE
Have a great week and THANK YOU for stopping by! :)

This weeks creations.....

I was able to sit down and just stamp this week. It helps that I received a good sized order I've been putting off. But then I had back order issues with my coordinating dies. I ended up fussy cutting ( not my fav thing to do)! LOL still trying to update my stamping library and supplies. I'm getting there though. So here's some of the cards I came up with. It was so good to just sit down and stamp. So relaxing.
