Get Sketchy #71 and Pink Cat Studio

Today I bring you this weeks Get Sketchy sketch.  It's another fab sketch that is great for any level card maker.  This week we are sponsored by Pink Cat Studio.  We got to play with some of the fabulous digital images and let me tell you these are way CUTE... I just love them all.  I have to say this is my first time using a digi image on a card but I did my thing and I just love the way it turned out..   If your new to digi images for card making like myself all the images print in black and white so you color it anyway you like or even print it on pattern paper etc.  Just like stamping but without the stamp.  Another great thing about Pink Cat Studio is not only do they do Digi images but they also make stamps that you can purchase so if your a stamper and love your rubber then your gonna love Pink Cat Studio.

Here is my take on this weeks Get Sketchy sketch..

 Products Used:
Pink Cat Studio digital image
The Girls Paperie pattern paper
Kraft Cardstock
White Cardstock
Stampin Up Markers
American Crafts rub-on

Ribbon from Michaels

Here is this weeks Get Sketchy Sketch #71

Sketch #1

When I create cards I usually sketch a draft out before creating so I have some kind of idea what I want to create.  Not always do they end up looking like the sketch after it's been flipped, twisted etc. I am by no means an expert at creating sketches but thought I would share anyway. lol  So with that said I thought it would be fun to post a sketch a week for 2011.  If you feel like playing along I would love to see what you do so leave a comment with a link back to your creation.  Who knows if a lot of people start playing a long I just may give out a prize once a month...

Here is the card I created with Sketch #1

Products used:
Heidi Swapp Pattern Paper
Kraft Cardstock
Vintage lace
Hero Arts Stamp
Studio G Stamp
Staz-On Black ink
VersaMagic Sahara Sand

Here is Sketch #1
Again I would love to see what you created if you use the sketch.  

Till Next time.  Happy Crafting...

Get Sketchy #70

Today I bring you this weeks Get Sketchy sketch.  I had fun with this sketch and using up some scraps that I have had in my scrap bin.  I don't keep a lot of scraps as I tend not to use them like I should so one of the things I am doing this year is to create cards with all my left overs from creating layouts or projects. It has always been my best intention to do this but as life always seems to get in the way things often get put on the back burner and before you know it you have a box filled with scraps.  Well NO more... lol  I have been cleaning and organizing my scrap room and vow to only keep scraps for no longer then a month.  At the beginning of the next month I will empty that drawer and bring it to my LSS to see if any of the ladies there want it and if not then it goes in the trash...  Ok so enough chit chat..

Here is my take on this weeks Get Sketchy sketch..

 Products used:
Bazzill Cardstock
DCWV Patter Paper
DCWV Chipboard embellishments
Bazzill Flower

Clear Scraps Sneak Peek Blog Hop...

Welcome to the Clear Scraps Sneak Peek Blog Hop..  
  

If you happened upon my blog by random you may want to go back to the Clear Scraps blog and start the hop at the beginning... there is a lot to see and all of us designers have been very busy creating with all the new products.

I am so excited about all the great new products that Clear Scraps is coming out with this CHA and I hope as you hop along you will get as excited as I am about this release and the amazing new CAST Acrylic products.  The Cast Acrylic is a harder non flexible acrylic that when your creating with it you must treat it like it's a piece of glass so no punching holes, embossing, sewing etc.  It is NOT replacing the flexible acrylic that we all have come to love.  It's just another Acrylic option that Clear Scraps has to offer.

Today I am sharing with you The Butterfly Cast Acrylic Tri-Fold mixed with a frame from the Clear N Chip Chloe Vintage frames.


 Products used:
Clear Scraps Butterfly Tri-fold
Pink Paislee Pattern papers
Stampin Up Stamp
Staz-on Inks (timber brown, black, black cherry and teal)
Vintage glass glitter
Viva liquid pearls
Vintage pink lace
The best glue ever

The Tri-Fold items are amazing for any home decor projects and will make an amazing gift.

Get Sketchy #69

Our Holidays were ok this year, but doing it all by myself was hard but I had a fun time with it and was grateful that hubby was able to watch the kids open up gifts via skype...  Skype has been a part of our every day lives and I am so thankful for it.  Without it I would not be able to see my hubby and he wouldn't be able to see the kids and I.  It's made this deployment a bit easier.

Today I bring you this weeks Get Sketchy sketch.  This sketch is awesome.. I love it because it's great for any level card maker and the possibilities are endless..   I took out some of my favorite pattern paper by Fancy Pants.  I just love all the little hearts.  I also grabbed some labels I found in the wedding section at Michaels a whole box of them for $0.97 great deal and some odds and ends that were on my desk. 

Here are my takes on the sketch..

 Products used:
Fancy Pants Pattern paper
Kraft Cardstock
Paper Trey Ink button
twine
Satin ribbon
Music paper
Label from Michaels
Studio G Stamp
StazOn Black ink
Colorbox Creamy Brown ink
Cricut Stamped cartridge for butterfly
