Friday Sketchers first week

Hello, today is the first day of our new sketch challenge blog the Friday Sketchers. All the "Sassy Stampers" were working really hard together as a team - to get the blog ready to go online today. Beatrix made a faboulous blog banner for the FS blog and Kimmie has already two more sponsors for us, who will be donating great prizes. Who it is.. ?? I guess, you will have to check us out week by week :-) As you already know for the first week Sweet'n Sassy Stamps is sponsoring a set called Gretchen - you can see a card i made with it here. Korin has also agreed to ship international - so please come on over to the Friday Sketcher blog and check us out.

This first week it was my turn to be the hostess of the challenge and represent the USA. My sketch is quite simple to make it easy at the beginning. It features something i thought is right now very popular in the US.. Cuttlebug embossing folder. Cuttlebug's embossing folders are great, if you have a piece of pretty patterend paper but not a different coordinating piece of of DP to layer with.

On my card the piece of dry embossed paper repeads the circle pattern of the DP. After i ran my shimmery white paper trough the CB, I heat embossed it with Irricend Ice embossing powder for extra sparkle. Unfortunately i was not able to capture this with my camera. I added on the edges of the clear flower some Stickles and in the center of the flower Tilda is holding is a drop of Ranger Liquid Pearl in pink. Other: Sewing and distressing on the card.


Stamps: Tilda med Blomma
CS and DP: Designer Paper i can not remember... tomorrow i will show you the card i made with in back in November - it was also a card that has been published. Shimmery White CS and Close to Cocoa CS
Embellishments: Making Memories Flower's and rhinestone brads (both metal and plastic), Satin chocolate SU ribbon
Tools: Nestabilities, Cuttlebug and Embossing folder, Sewing machine
Coloring: Stampin up re-inkers, Pebbles shimmer chalks
