Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.
Using this week's SSSC and the inspiration photo from this week's Fusion Challenge, I created a collection of three square cards. I loved the watering can with all of the fall flowers and leaves in the inspiration photo and so I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set Petite Pots on all three cards and the watering can from the Garden Variety set on my first card.

For my second card, I used the PTI stamp sets Turning a New Leaf and the Scripted set again for my sentiment and basically did the same technique as my first card except with less steps. This time I stamped my sentiment on a banner and matted my watercolor piece using both brilliant blue and going gray and added it to a white card base. And instead of sequins, I added a few clear rhinestones for some sparkle.

Hello there! Today I'm sharing a card that I created for two different challenges, one is the Just Add Ink Challenge #282 with it's pretty color combo and the second is CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge #143.
For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets, Just Smile (for the flowers & leaves) and Embellished Elegance (for the happy w/coordinating die and birthday). I used the colors, raspberry fizz, melon mambo, pretty in pink and going gray and randomly stamped the top quarter of a piece of watercolor paper with the different flowers and the leaves. Next I die cut two of the happy die from basic gray card stock and stamped one with the coordinating stamp, then glued the two together for some added thickness to the die cut piece and then added it to the front of my card.
You can see in the pictures below that I added pale pink iridescent sequins throughout the stamped flowers, it looks prettier in real life.

Hello and welcome! It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!
I'm on a Halloween roll with my stamping and I'm having fun! For my card today, my inspiration was not only this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch but also the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge (love the bats). I used the Lawn Fawn stamp set Spooktacular and some Doodlebug Designs paper to create a Halloween Friend card.
You might be able to see from the photo below that I popped up the bat at the top of the card with foam tape and added some glitter pen to each of their wings along with some silver stars and sequins to give my card some sparkle.

Hi there, crafty friends! Happy World Card Making Day! I'm popping in today to share a card that I created using this week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #206.
For my Halloween card I started out with a white card base, then added a panel of lavender lace card stock. On top of the lavender, I added a piece of watercolor paper that I watercolored with crushed olive distress ink. Then I used my circle dies to cut out two circles in black card stock and one from designer paper and then added my fun stamped, die cut and colored images from the Lawn Fawn stamp set Spooktacular, popping up the little ghost.
