365 Cards: Day 151 - Super Sketchy Sunday (Sketch by Pam Maas)

It's time again for another Super Sketchy Sunday at the 365 Cards Challenge blog.  And it is of course, one of Pam's beautiful handmade sketches. Are you ready for it...?

Here is what we're playing with this Sunday!

For this sketch, I finally had to break in to my The Greeting Farm Space Ian rubber stamp... And so here is my take...

I hope you like it.  Leave me some love.

And also, don't forget to drop by the other Sunday girls' blogs to see what inspiration they offer you this week!

Then we'd like to see your projects on the blog! Link it up here

Challenge: CAS Wishy Washi

Playing with my washi tapes and joining in on the fun at CAS-ual Fridays. :)

Here is my take which is also inspired by Paper Issue's Wishy Washi challenge.  But too bad I didn't make it to the last call..

Challenge: Congratulations

Over the last couple of months, I have been trying out several makes of stamps.  And one of my favorites are the ones from My Favorite Things.  Having been a follower of the MFT blog and forums for a while, I have finally decided to jump in and send a card for their Wednesday Stamp Club challenge #82.

Here is this week's sketch -

And here is my take -

The DPs are from DoodleBug Designs' Snips & Snails collection.  The stamped image and sentiment is from the A La Mode - Bundle of Baby clear stamp set. The stitching is also a clear stamp from the Framed Greetings stamp set.

Here is a close up on the stamped image which I coloured with Copics.  The dress and headband is paper-pieced from a scrap piece of an AC DP.

My card is also inspired by the following challenges -
1 - Stacy's Challenge @ Sketches4All - Circles
2 - The Stamping Boutique - Paper Piecing

Challenge: Amelia and Oliver Gift Tags

Whenever I get too many scraps, I always make gift tags out of them.  Here are 2 new gift tags I made using scraps and showcasing The Greeting Farm's OA Surprise rubber stamp set.

Here is a close up on Amelia.

Here is a close up of Oliver.

I would like to submit them to the latest Farm Fresh Friday challenge for dies and/or punches, and Simon Says' Anything Goes Challenge.

Paper Issues: Wishy Washi

A few weeks ago, I finally gave into these pretty little masking tapes fondly called Washi Tapes. 

And since then, I've made these two cards.  Which I am sharing with the followers of Paper Issues.

I love how easy it is to work with these tapes, and I am looking forward to creating more projects with them..

Thank you for dropping by. Leave me some love!
