An Epic Day Happy Banner — FMS127

It’s Wednesday, and Spring Break is going by way too fast!  I think I enjoy Spring Break just as much, if not more, than the kids do.  It’s time for a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and Jennifer Timko has a very fresh and clean sketch for us.

I used some of the Epic Day This and That suite of products — dsp and washi tape.  I still love this suite!  I also pulled out Gorgeous Grunge and Clockworks, two stamp sets I haven’t used in a while.  I stamped off these images first on scratch paper before stamping the background on the card, as I wanted a subtle look.

Epic Day Clockworks

You can check out what the other designers made with the sketch at the Freshly Made Sketches site.  Then, we hope you’ll make your own card and post it to the gallery so we can admire your creation.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

A Clockworks Father’s Day Card

I always struggle with Father’s Day cards (really, I struggle with manly cards in general). I decided to pull out my Clockworks stamp set (which hasn’t seen much ink) and play.

Clockworks Father's Day

One of the things I love about this stamp set is that you can’t really mess up.  It’s just messy and fun.

Dallas Regional Make & Takes

Stampin’ Up! had some really cute make & take projects for us at the regional event this past Saturday.  They all featured two stamp sets called Clockworks and One in a Million.  I’ve had the Clockworks set on my wish list for quite a while, but just haven’t bought it as it’s different from my normal style.  I did have a lot of fun using it at the regional event though…

Regional Note pad 2

This first project is a notepad cover.  They gave us a plain white 4″ x 6″ notepad, and we covered it with the embellished gray card stock cover.  We scored the Basic Gray card stock first at 1/4″ intervals (it was supposed to be 1/2″ intervals, but I never can follow make & take instructions well).  The flower was supposed to be on the left hand side, but I needed to cover a mistake, so I switched it around.  I love these colors together – – Gumball Green More Mustard, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, and Basic Gray.

Regional Card

This is the card we made.  We used the spritzers to mist a mixture of rubbing alcohol and Gumball Green ink refill on the card base.  We made a mask for the white panel and sponged Gumball Green ink over the mask to make the circles and green border.

Regional Box

This last project is a little box of notecards, made using the Two Tags Bigz Die.  Here’s a picture of the little notecards:

I hope you enjoyed the little peeks at some of the stamping from the Dallas regional event.  Enjoy your Thursday!  Thanks for stopping by!
