Christmas Card Challenges – Dots & Stripes!

Happy Sunday, and Happy Father’s Day! It’s time for a new Christmas Card Challenge, and this week, we’d like for you to use dots and stripes on your entry!

Here’s my card!
supplies: card base, image stamp (Henry Eating Large Cookie – Whiff of Joy), sentiment stamp (aMuse Studio), polka dot paper (aMuse Studio), plaid paper (Good Cheer – October Afternoon), spellbinders die (Labels 25), clear button, kraft cardstock, twine (Whisker Graphics), foam tape, brads, blue card stock (Stampin’ UP!),  white card stock (Papertrey Ink), ink (Brilliance Graphite Black, Stampin’ Up Real Red), Copic markers [mouse – E81, E84 (fur), E41 (belly). R01. R02. E93 (ears), RV32 (nose), R14, R24, W2, 0 (hat); cookie – E30, E31, E50, E53; G00, G40 (icing); sprinkles – RV14, G16, Y15, B26, R29, R37; other – W1, W2, 0.

I’ve been looking forward to using this stamp since I got it after Christmas last year. I colored the image a while back, and couldn’t decide what card I’d make with it! When I saw that this week’s challenge was dots & stripes, I thought it would be perfect!
You can’t really see it in the photo, but I added Glossy Accents to the frosting on the cookie to give it a little shine. I love the little rainbow sprinkles on the cookie! Whenever I make sugar cookies, I always add those sprinkles…I don’t know what it is, but somehow the cookies taste better with the sprinkles!

Unscripted Sketches #116

Happy Saturday and welcome back for another Unscripted Sketches challenge!  There’s still about a week left in our Christmas In July Celebration! I hope you’ve been enjoying the special posts on the Unscripted blog, the designer spotlights, and playing along with our weekly challenges!
Here’s our sketch for this week! I think it would work great for a scrapbook layout, too! The three little rectangles had me stumped for a bit, but I took the photo idea and applied it to my card!
Here’s my card!

Other supplies: paper (Basic Grey’s Sweet Threads), flower (Prima), brad (Crate Paper), letter stickers (Cosmo Cricket), Sizzix embossing folder, Copic markers.
The stamps are from Whiff of Joy. I changed the proportions on the rectangles from what they appear to be on the sketch to better match the stamp images and the card dimensions. My layering order is also different so that I wouldn’t be blocking more important parts of each image. And, instead of placing three separate lines of text (which probably wouldn’t have fit after I added the rectangles) I only made one.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Unscripted Sketches #112

Happy Saturday and welcome back for another Unscripted Sketches challenge (#112)!  We’re back from a great trip down to visit my in-laws and friends in California…it’s always fun to travel, but it’s always so good to be home!
If you’re just finding Unscripted Sketches, every Saturday morning we post a sketch for the week. Flip the sketch, rotate it…make a card, a scrapbook page, or anything your imagination comes up with! There’s no right or wrong way, as long as you’re using the Unscripted Sketch as the inspiration and basis of your creation!

Here’s our sketch for this week…I think you’ll really like it!
Here’s my card! I used Whiff of Joy’s “Rogue Charlotte” combined with some patterned paper from Bo Bunny’s Crush collection:

Other supplies: typed sentiment, Copic markers, rhinestones, twine, grommet, button, embossing folder (Sizzix).
