Merry Monday Challenge #71

Hey Everyone

Lesley’s sketch at Merry Monday had me stumped for a bit this week as I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with all those circles.  In the end I found it a great sketch to use up some of the scrap pieces of DSP that I’ve been hoarding.

Merry Monday Challenge #70

Hey Everyone

It’s Merry Monday time again!

MMC70sketch

Sometimes when I sit down to work out what stamp set I’m going to use on a card, I can sit for ages deliberating what will work best.  When I saw this sketch I thought of one Stampin’ Up! stamp set only – Dasher – he’s an oldie but goodie.  Not sure if you can tell, but I’ve stamped him once onto the circle and I then stamped him again to fussy cut him out and raise him up.  I do like dimension on my cards.  Here’s what I came up with:

I’ve gone with non-traditional papers for my card today and used some papers from Stampin’ Up!s Etcetera DSP. I’ve teamed them with Midnight Muse cardstock and used retired Stampin’ Up! stamp sets called Jolly Bingo Bits and Merry and Type.

Merry Monday July Challenge – Week 4 & Retro Sketches #73

Hey Everyone

It’s week 4 of Lesley’s Merry Monday Anything Goes Challenge.

I’m missing Lesley’s sketches, so I found this weeks fab sketch at Retro Sketches to give me a hand with layout.  Love this sketch as it allows me to show off my DSP.  I used a retired Stampin’ Up! pack called Christmas Cocoa DSP.

Merry Monday July Challenge – Week 3

Hey Everyone

We’re at week 3 of Lesley’s Merry Monday Anything Goes Challenge for July.

I’ve gone with some non-traditional colours for my card to mix it up this week.  The colours I’ve gone for are Sahara Sand and Tempting Turquoise – a colour combo that I initially thought would be good for a change from my vintage style.

The designer series paper I’ve used is a retired Stampin’ Up! one called Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP.  No matter many Christmas cards I make, I never seem to be getting to the bottom of my Christmas DSP pile.
