Get Sketchy #72

I stepped out of my comfort zone this week with the current Get Sketchy sketch.

My card did not turn out like my mind pictured it, but I don't hate it.

This week's sponsor is BMused Etsy shop with a cute belt buckle up for grabs, so you'll want to play along. Just use the above sketch and link you card up here.

I chose this card's color scheme from the Neutrals Color Challenge for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week in the Moxie Fab World.

I've also entered it into the Tuesday Throwdown distressing challenge.

Get Sketchy #71

I had a blast making this week's Get Sketchy card. We used the most adorable images from Pink Cat Studio. It was hard to choose which one to use!

Isn't he the cutest? Just like my husband.... so, this is his valentine's day card :)

I'm just so impressed with the quality of the Pink Cat Studio's images. They were so easy to use and ridiculously cute. Go see for yourself.

You know you could win some Pink Cat Studio images by making a card using this week's sketch:

Whatcha waitin' for?

From a LO to a Card

There are so many designers out there who can make amazing cards AND scrapbook layouts. That's just unfair, people. I know that they are awfully similar and use the same products, but for some reason my LOs never look as good as (some of) my cards. Therefore, I am on the ScrapTiffany Design Team to make cards. However, my uber talented, fellow DT member, Bev, decided to give us a LO sketch for our challenge this week. That means DOUBLE the challenge for me because I've got to make it work for a card. Yay. Here's Bev's great sketch:

And here's what I came up with:

My simple style had to get rid of the rectangles, but you can tell that the sketch drove this card. Can't you? LOL. Oh, and the stitching would've looked even better with some colored thread, but I don't know how to put the bobbin back in. What am I going to do when the white thread runs out.

Are you up for the challenge? Show us what you got by linking your project in the comments section of this ScrapTiffany post. You'll be eligible for a $25 GC from Sierra Metal Designs.

GS 70

Here's this week's Get Sketchy sketch:

This one's full of possibilities, so you have no excuse not to play along.

Keepin' it short and sweet today because I am busy crafting for submissions. My big goal of 2011 is to be published in a print magazine, and you can't get published if you don't submit.

GS 69

Woo hoo! Get Sketchy is back from our break to survive the holidays, and I am ready!!!

Great sketch, huh? Here I am with all this excitement, yet I have a sympathy card to share with you. No need for it right now, praise God. The sentiment just fit nicely inside the journaling block.

I also created this card for the Gray is the New Black Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. When your mojo needs a kick in the pants, see what inspiration MFW has for you and pair it with a Get Sketchy sketch. Magic.

So come on, get crafting.

Scraplift a fellow DT member

Yikes! I thought this was posted yesterday, but I must have goofed.
ScrapTiffany has started a new Design Team term with several new members. In order to get to know each other a bit, the challenge was to scraplift each other's work. As I was sifting through Renee's blog, I found this cute composition book that she altered.

An altered composition book would make a cute gift for my soon-to-be-13-year-old niece.

I hope she likes it!!!

Things have changed a little over at ScrapTiffany. The blog has a new look, there are new DT members, and there is a new challenge on the 1st and 15th of each month instead of every week. Why don't you give this first challenge of 2011 a try? Just hop around to the DT's blogs and scraplift a project. Then email Tiffany a photo of your work so she can feature it on a blog post.
