Feeling Famous!

Happy Sunday! I have been extra busy so I am a little behind on posting!
I am feeling just a little tiny bit famous.... I am the sketch gal over at OWH today! Nice surprise- and extra nice because I really like the sketch! I like that i can use some pretty papers and have lots left over for other cards! Great way to use up scraps!


Just a helpful tip- the measurements for the top and bottom strips are .75x5 inches.

I altered my card a bit- I wanted to use this stamp and sentiment but they were too large so I combined the boxes on the right into 1 box.  The stamps are from the HSN iconic set, the papers are MME The Sweetest Thing-Tangerine and the viewmaster is colored over with black glaze by Sakura. I adore the glaze pens- they give a nice shine but dry quickly, come in lots of colots and they are in an easy to use pen! The white areas on the viewmaster are light reflections- it is so shiny!   This week Jan challlenged us to make cards for the guys! I decided to make a swing card with my Cricut and CTMH Artiste cartridge...super easy to do!

MFT stamps, Bazzill card stock for the base of card, the strips are from my stash.

And my other famous moment, Sandy posted some cards from her students from the Stage It classes and I have several of my cards on her blog today!
Very exciting for me!
Have a wonderful week and please continue to craft on!
(anyone else having troubles with blogger today? I cannot make any edits- so I apologize for typos! I could not edit a previous post -the one where my cards were originally posted on 5/9- I have several typos in that as well!
Thanks for stopping by,

  5. I love this week's sketch and all of your cards show how versatile it is just by small tweaks. Every card is perfect - great papers and elements! I really like your masculine challenge card with the stripes and the lighthouse.
