The Sketch Challenge (SC697), is so clean & simple..basically just a slash coming in from the lower side. So for that slash, I have a partial pencil. I did flip the sketch & lay it horizontally & somehow the downward slash became an upward one. Oh well. 

This is definitely one of, if not THE simplist cards I’ve ever made. A lot of open white space tends to make me nervous.  This Pencil image is technically, supposed to go on the back of the card, but I couldn’t get this idea out of my head to put it on the front. To me, it looks made to go w/ the Dropping a Line, greeting. 

To make it, I die cut the white panel, then stamped the greeting & part of the pencil then colored them. I added some coloring under the greeting to make it slightly dimensional looking. Then I embossed the left side w/ part of an embossing folder. Lucky for me I had the pencil border folder & even luckier, I could find it! After embossing, I lightly rubbed a turquoise Prismacolor pencil over the raised lines.

Here’s the inside & below it are the Copics I used.

For the Inspiration Challenge (IC649), Angie chose Vineyard Marketplace & I chose THIS for my inspiration. I like the bright colors & floral theme.

This bg was made a while ago, using swirls made with plain old glue then using watercolors on top of it. I just really like the bright, happy colors & thought they’d go well behind these whimsical leaves. The leaves were put into my Misti, stamped, colored w/ Copics & a Prismacolor pencil overlay, then stamped again. I added the greeting & did my out of the box technique to die cut it. By the way, I first did that tutorial way back in Feb 2009 using another IO image set! It’s probably my most used technique. After matting, I used stickles in some areas, added a few sequins & some white dots for contrast.

I’ve always loved this unique coffee image & it’s been way too long since I used it. So I managed to locate it (since moving, it’s been a challenge to find a lot of stuff!) & used it for the IO Challenge All That Glitters.


For my card, I put the coffee image (Smell the Coffee set CL157) into my Misti and stamped it on some paper I hand marbled. Well, actually it’s a copy of the paper I hand marbled. Since each one is a one of a kind piece I started using color copies so I could hang onto the originals. After stamping, I die cut & used some the leftover paper to make a frame. Some stickles was added for the glitter part.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
