Stick It Down Blog Hop

Hello Everybody!

Welcome to Stick It Down's November blog hop! Several of our design team members have created projects to share with you using any of our past SID sketches.  You should have arrived here from Ashley's blog.

If you've never participated in a blog hop before, you'll "hop" from blog to blog to visit each designer's page and project. You'll leave a comment at each stop along the hop. The hop will end right back here where you started, where you can comment to let us know you've completed the hop and you're entered to win the grand prize. You have until Monday November 23 at 11:59pm to complete the hop. The winner will be announced on or before November 25.

We have several prize packages and one grand prize lined up! Paper Wings Productions is generously sponsoring our blog hop and is offering a $25 gift certificate to the online store!

Paper Wings Productions is owned by Carrie Edelmann Avery. All of the PWP stamps are produced in the USA and are made using the highest quality of materials. You can check out the PWP online store to see the red rubber cling stamps and the clear photopolymer stamps!

Are you ready to get started? Here is the order of the hop, in case you get lost:
Stick It Down 

I love our sketches at Stick It Down!  To get in the Christmas spirit I scrapped a picture from a few years ago:

This is all Doodlebug except for the ric rac and the title.  I love this collection (home for the holidays)!  This little Rudolph is soooo cute!

I used this sketch to create this layout.  It's so fun!  

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  A big thanks goes to Paper Wings Productions for sponsoring our blog hop!  

Your next stop is our very own Stick It Down .  :)

Until next time my friends...Celebrate! :)

House of Cards Time!

Hello Everybody!

Now that Halloween-time is going to fly by and it will be Christmas time.  I tried not to say it-but it's so true!

But on a fun note, since it is now November 1st, it's time for a new challenge at House of Cards!  This month the challenge is to use the stamped punch window technique.  You can go here to see Mynn's video for it.

Here is my stamped punch window:

Here is my whole card.  So I cut a piece of white cardstock smaller than the base of my card and used distress inks to color it.  Then I stamped the wings.  On a separate piece of white card stock I stamped the pocketwatch (by Hot off the Press).  I used walnut stain distress ink on it and a twisted citron under the loop at the top.  I used my hole punch to punch the face off.

I used my Krylon gold pen to line the outer and inner rectangles of the card.  Then I adhered the top panel with pop dots.  After that I put the face of the clock back in and added the sentiment.  They sentiment is from Dylusions.

This is a cool technique.  Make sure you stop by the House of Cards to see everyone's take on this fun technique.  Until next time my friends...Time to go! (and squander my extra hour) ;)

Hey Pilgrim Layout

Hello Everybody!

We have such a fun 1 page sketch challenge over at Stick It Down.  And when you are done with that we have a double page and card sketches too! :)  

I was glad that I had turkey pictures to scrap.  I am embracing Fall and this worked out perfectly! I made the pilgrim and the pilgrim hat from the silhouette.  (I love making things from the Silhouette!)

I used a frame on the center picture.  I always want to use more frames-so this makes me happy as well! :)

Thank you for stopping by!  We can't wait to see what you create!  Gobble Gobble! ;)

Pew Pew

Hello Everybody!

I am here with another layout for Let's Get Sketchy!  (Under the wire here!) ;)  This layout is inspired by their Week 4 Sketch.

My son is a Storm Trooper this year for Halloween.  So I love the Halloween Star Wars Mash Up :)  This was regular black card stoc that I sprayed White Dylusions spray on.  It need something in the background.  

The sticker under his picture says "Aren't you a little short to be a Storm Trooper?"  It never gets old. :)

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...Eat lots of candy! ;)

Fabulous Layout

Hello Everybody!

There are some Fabulous Sketches over at Let's Get Sketchy!  The sketch from Week 3 inspired this layout:

I used texture luxe Faber castell paste and a Heidi Swapp stencil to make those chevrons.  I love this paste!  The title is Heidi Swapp's and so is the tag.  The tag is from the Minc Machine (which is totally awesome!)  Then a little misting and small dot stenciling in the background.

Than you for stopping by!  Until next time my fabulous! :)

Got Trend?

Hello Everybody!

I was playing around and made this Halloween card.  I was playing with trends.  The background is a little mixed media-spray, used a stencil, did some paint splatters.  Then I incorporated some feathers.  They're still in style right?  And gold!  I am obsessed with gold.  I used to like it.  Now I am full blown obsessed.  So I used Ranger's sticky embossing powder along with this fabulous gold glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle to outline the ghost.

What do you think?  It's a little different.  Sometimes you have to go out of your comfort zone.  That is what I did. :)

And since Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge-I am going to submit this crazy card!  

Thank you for stopping by.  Until next time my use lots of gold ;)  (just kidding!)
