A few challenge cards!

Hi, crafty friends! Just stopping by to share a few sketch challenge cards I’ve made!
My first card uses the sketch from last week’s challenge on The Greeting Farm’s Splitcoast forum:
Supplies: main image stamp [Yoga Anya – The Greeting Farm (retired)], sentiment and flower stamps [Me Time Anya set – The Greeting Farm (retired)], paper (My Mind’s Eye – The Sweetest Thing “Tangerine” mini pad), glitter brads, foam tape, Copic markers, seam binding ribbon, Martha Stewart border punch.
My second card is for Deconstructed Sketch #71:

Supplies: image and sentiment stamp (Your Next Stamp – “Apple Cutie”), glitter stripe and brown patterned paper (SEI – “Mirelle” 6×6 pad),  wood button (Basic Grey), twine (Trendy Twine), orange grid paper (American Crafts – “Pumpkin Patch), kraft card stock.

My third card is for the current Wednesday Stamp Club sketch at My Favorite Things’ Splitcoast forum:

Supplies: stamps (My Favorite Things – “Snow Adorable”),  patterned paper (Basic Grey Jovial), twine (Whisker Graphics), Copic markers, kraft card stock, Fiskars decorative scissors, Brilliance Graphite Black ink.

Don’t forget, you still have time to play along with a few challenges: a new Christmas Card Challenge (chipboard inspired), the “Confessions of a Shopaholic” challenge at Drunken Stampers (use images of a purse or shoes on your card), and we’ll have a brand new month of challenges at Your Next Stamp starting Thursday…until then, there’s still time to play along with our current sketch challenge!

MFT October Guest Designer Contest

Hello crafty friends! I’m back to share my card for My Favorite Things’ October Guest Designer Contest!
I used a sweet Pure Innocence stamp and matching sentiment from the “Hello Cupcake” set. The image is colored with Copic markers. I added a pattern to her dress with a white opaque marker.
I would have liked to have the Rounded Banner Die-Namics to create the shape that the main image is stamped on, but I tried my best to get it right with the supplies I had on hand!
Other supplies: patterned paper (Cosmo Cricket Early Bird, Echo Park Dots & Stripes), brads, sewing machine, card stock.
I’ve never had a giant cupcake like that one, but it looks tasty! It’s been a while since I baked up something yummy…I made pumpkin bread last week and I was lucky to get a piece or two before my husband finished off the rest!
Here’s the sketch that inspired my card:

Getting Sketchy with My Favorite Things Stamps!

Hi crafty friends! Happy Saturday! Hope you’re having a great weekend! 
Scott and I went out for Italian food tonight for our weekly “Date Night”! It’s always good to have some quiet time with him…his schedule can be so crazy sometimes!
In craft-related news, I’m popping by today to share the card I made for the September Guest Designer Contest at My Favorite Things Stamps!
This month’s challenge is to make a card based on this sketch:
Here’s my first take, using MFT’s a la modes “Rock Star” set and the Die-namics Mini Tabs Foursome for the sentiment. I created three star accents in place of the flower on the sketch and moved the sentiment a bit lower:

Other supplies: patterned papers (Basic Grey), embossing folder (Crafts Too), cardstock (Stampin’ UP!), ink (Brilliance Graphite Black), opaque white marker, Stickles, star punch, woodgrain paper (aMuse Studio), Copics (skin – E00, E11; hair – E42, E43, E44; guitar – R22, R32, C4, C0; clothes: shirt – R21, R22, R24, BV20, BV23, 100; shorts – YG93, YG95; shoes – N6; shadows – W0, W2, W4), seam binding ribbon, silver gel pen.
Other supplies: patterned papers (Bo Bunny), cardstock, ink (Brilliance Graphite Black), Copics (skin – E00, E21, R02; hair – E42, E43, E44; clothes: BG13, BG23, BG0000, BG32, BG34, G21, G24, G40, YR21, W0, W2; shoes: E31), seam binding ribbon, sewing machine, glitter brads.
