no glitter. I started with sketch #149 from OWH. Patterned paper is from My Minds Eye, another well aged page kit that never made it into the scrapbook. The sentiment is from Basic Grey. For glitz and glam I used small dots of liquid pearls.
I made it to the end!! Now to go back and clean up the creative disaster and use up all the bit and pieces that are left over!

all white or cream and to have at least 3 layers. Al one color was a challenge for me. I wanted to use the flower ribbon from May Arts, so I started there. I've had this last piece since working on CHA 2012 card kits. I then decided on OWH sketch #2. The embossing folder is from cuttlebug. The sentiment stamp is from Making Memories. It still needed a little something.... I added a small dot of white Pearl Pen at all of the intersections of the embossing folder. The 2 shapes for the sentiment are nesties and are popped up using Sticky Thumb dimensional adhesive.
washi tape. Washi is a thin paper tape. The polka dot and circle tapes are both from Queen and Co, from their Disney line. The sentiment is from an OWH set by Hero Arts. The circles are nesties. Sketch is OWH #105. The sentiment is popped up with dimensional adhesive by Sticky Thumb.
caffeine related, wither it is coffee, tea, or soda, use it on a card. I've had this set from Fiskars for awhile, but I think this is the first time I've used it. The sleeve on the cup is pieced with card stock. The patterned paper is Daisy D's, & left over from the card kit for the 5th challenge. It needed to be used up! The light blue brads are from a source unknown, they were included as part of the page kit. Grey highlights in steam and shadow around cup are copic.
things with wheels. I pulled out an old, but never used set from Close to My Heart. The patterned paper is from Karen Foster as are the coordinating solids. The front loader was stamped in dark brown chalk ink by color box and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment stamp is from TPC Studios. The truck is also popped up with dimensional adhesive from Sticky Thumb.
make a whole sheet of pattern paperdisappear using OWH sketch #63. This is another really old page kit that needed to be used up since it is pretty obvious that it wasn't going to be heading into a scrapbook any time soon. ;) Both patterned papers are by Daisy D's. Flower is a QuicKutz die. Sentiment stamp is from TPC Studios.
things with wings. I used the Stampin Up owl punch for my thing with wings. The pattern paper was from the same page kit as in challenge #1, so I don't know the manufacture. The sentiment stamp is from TPC Studios. The branch the owl is sitting on is a stamp from a set by Kelly Panacci by Sandylion. Sketch is from OWH #34. All edges were inked with dark brown chalk ink by color box.
selective embossing. This was definitely a challenge. I had never tried this before, so it was fun to try something new. I think with the right folders it would have been a lot easier than trying to figure out the right "sandwich" to make it work... My poor swirl embossing folder almost didn't survive. A little heavy duty packaging tape & I think it's as good as new. I used a sizzix embossing folder and then gently rubbed a little broken china distress ink over the embossed areas with a distress tool. The little girl is from My Favorite Things and the OWH stamp fundraiser and colored with copics. Sentiment stamp is from a OWH set by Hero Arts.
The cheverons are done with a EK Success border punch. The pattern paper and die cuts are from an unknown source. They were a page kit that I purchased YEARS ago and never used. Until now. ;) I put glossy accents on the horse shoes and cowboy hat to dress them up a bit and inked the edges of the blue cardstock and patterned paper. Used sketch #125 from OWH.

This card started with this weeks card sketch challenge. The sentiment I wanted to use didn't quite fit the sketch sizes, so I just tucked it under the cupcake after matting it. Pattern paper is more scraps from My Minds Eye. Stamps are from Hero Arts. Cupcake paper is pieced. Sprinkles are colored with Zig pens. Copics used to add outline highlights.
The workspace is cleared & now on to some new & different paper to play with! 1st up will be a few cards for the ski club. Have a few kid's birthdays that I need to get cards made for....

We're off to play in the snow as soon as the teenager gets out of school... My markers will be traveling along for some coloring time this evening. Eventually I hope my robots will start to resemble something close to what Sandy taught on her show a couple of weeks ago.....

This card started with the strip of dot paper that was laying on the desk. It fit OWH's sketch #1 perfectly. :) Sentiment stamp is from Basic Grey, it's one of my favorites.

This card is actually a 5x7 card instead of 4.25 x 5.5 that I usually make for OWH. The Friends die cut was just to big to go on a smaller card. I trimmed out the die cut (from My Mind's Eye circa 2002. Another treasure unearthed in the stash), and then mounted it on the cream card stock to figure out how big to make that piece, then worked from there. The sentiment is from Art Impressions. I used stickles on the girls flip flops, shirt flower, and edge of the white shirt. Since I sent this one to a friend, I didn't use glossy accents over the top of the stickels....
the same sketch, but in the smaller A2 size. I used another Friend from My Mind's Eye, but didn't add a sentiment, making her the focal point. I dressed the flat die cut up with stickels in the flowers on her hat, her shoes, and her gloves. Liquid pearls on her necklace. And a little bling for her earring. Then covered all the stickels with glossy accents to seal the glitter. I inked the edges of the bottom layers using a color box ink pad.

The paper is from My Mind's Eye, lime twist line. Sentiment is from Hero Arts. Button die cuts are QuicKutz and tied with DMC rayon floss. I added a dot of glossy accents to the floss knots so they would stay tied. I followed the original sketch and just added mats to all the pieces to make them pop off the bottom layer of patterned paper. :)
