TESC91 Our House to Yours

November 13th, 2009


Happy Friday!  Time for another Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge – TESC91.  I have to say that I think Wings of Joy is my current favorite stamp set.  I seem to want to pick it up almost every chance I get!  And I’m loving the color combo of sage, coco and real red…it’s just so yummy!

Today’s card actually came after a project I designed for my classes this week.  I haven’t had a chance to photgraph it yet, but it’s a gift card holder and my sample today coordinates with it.  I came across this retired SU sage dp in my stash and it was my jumping off point.


The cocoa panel was run through my Cuttlebug with the snowflake embossing folder and then sponged with white craft ink.  The birdhouse was stamped and colored twice with copics.  The 2nd image was cut out and popped up on foam tape.  The snow was covered with Dazzling Diamonds glitter adhered with my trusty Sakura Quickie Glue pen.  I used circle nesties and the white circle was sponged with cocoa ink.  The sentiment “from our house to yours” was stamped in Brilliance Chocolate ink for a little shimmer and the card was finished off with some KaierCraft chocolate pearls and a big red grosgrain bow.



I continued the decoration to the inside a la Denise/peanutbee.  I’m addicted to finishing off the insides of cards now and I’m sad when I run out of time before I get that part done!

Now it’s time to check out what the rest of the Sketch Crew has cooked up today:

  • My class yesterday afternoon was sooooo much fun!  I’m really looking forward to the second session tonight!  I just love to see people learning about stamping and having those little *aha moments* as they explore their creative side!  Thanks for stopping by!
