Sale-a-bration Sneak Peaks

Hi everyone, it being so hot here in Perth today, 40.4C, I did not venture out of the air conditioning so I sat and played at my craft table.

These are two cards I made using some of my Sale-a-bration Goodies that arrived on Friday.  

Love U

The challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches is based on this terrific sketch by Narelle.

I have made my card using some of my Sale-a-bration goodies that arrived on Friday.  I just love the DSP and decided to use it on my card for a Sneak Peak for everyone.

He's making a list and checking it twice... Hope you're nice

The challenge this week at Just Add Ink is "Just Add - Santa".

One of my favourite stamps lately is "Santa's List".  I love the versatility of the stamp, you can antique Santa or give him a clean look.  I decided to go a bit on the antique side for this card, using Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Naturals White cardstock along with the Season of Style DSP Paper Pack and an Old Olive Simply Styled embellishment.

Pals Paper Arts - Secret Garden

The challenge this week at Pals Paper Arts is to create a papercraft project using the colours of Elegant Eggplant, Smoky Slate and Very Vanilla.

For my card I have used the stamp sets "Secret Garden" and "Itty Bitty Banners" along with the co-ordinating Framelits.  The embossing folder used is Stylish Stripes, put through the Bigshot twice to give the cross hatched effect.  The DSP is from the Regals Paper Stack and the Eastern Elegance  Paper Pack.  To finish the card of I have used three silver (the closest I could get to Smoky Slate) Glimmer Brads.

This is my card for the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches this week, based on this sketch by the "Clean Team".
I had a go at making some dominoes using Naturals White Cardstock and Candy Dots for something different for a masculine card.  I cut the Naturals White Cardstock 7/8" wide by 1 3/4" long, drew a line in the centre with the Basic Black  Stampin' Write Marker and added the Basic Black Candy Dots.  I ran the Basic Black Ink Pad around the sides of the dominoes to finish them off.

The background was made using the stamp sets "Gorgeous Grunge" and "Off the Grid".  The sentiment is from the "Teeny Tiny Sentiments" stamp set, one of my favourite go to stamp sets for sentiments.

Deconstructed Sketch

I know that I have not blogged for a while, but I got a real surprise when I realised that it was 2 months.  Time flies when you are having fun.  I have been creating in my blogging absence, scrapbooking a creating mini albums,just not card making to post on-line.

Anyway, I felt like creating some cards today and this is what I made for the challenge at the Deconstructed Sketch based on this great sketch.

Deconstructed Sketch No. 129
I have used the stamp sets "Santa's List" and "Petite Pairs" along with Crumb Cake cardstock and Cherry Cobbler DSP from the Regals DSP Stack.  I coloured Santa in with Stampin' Write Markers, Ink Pads and Blender Pen.
