It is Tuesday sketch time once again over at Skipping Stones Design.  This is the sketch we got to play with this week:
I really liked this one and had alot of fun creating my card.  This is what I decided to do with the sketch.

I used my sewing machine for a change....The images are all embossed and look nice and shiny IRL.  I love this new set of stamps called "Sassy Shoes", and decided to combine it with one of the purses from  "Birthday Purses".  These two sets really are fun to combine. This is "Sassy Shoes" .....

Stop on over to the SSD blog to see what fun the other Stamp Tramps have come up with.  While there stop by the store and do some shopping!   Also, why not try your hand at this weeks sketch and upload it to the SSD blog...you could be this weeks winner of  a free stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful week!    God Bless.............Tammie

This is a special sketch Tuesday over at Skipping Stones Design Blog.  We have the second sketch this month from the very talented Danielle Flanders.  The sketch this week is also being combined with a blog hop to celebrate the release of Heather's new stamp set "Sassy Shoes". You should have arrived here from Barb Turpin's blog....if you just happened on my blog today and want the whole blog list just hop to the SSD blog .  So....lets begin the fun shall we by starting with Danielle's sketch for this week.
So we have the sketch to play along with...now lets look at the awesome new stamp set called "Sassy Shoes"!
Now is this set fun or what!!...One can do soooo much with these shoes!  The sayings are great too!  This is the card I did combining the two.....

I used PTI CS  and address labels cut down for a quick way to do the border.  I stamped the shoes and colored them with copics....notice the red shoe...that shoe used copics blender pen to "remove" color to create designs etc.  I did dots and stripes.  It may be hard to see but is really a fun technique to play with.

I will not waste alot of time on my post so you can get on to the rest of the hop.  You should hop from my blog to Ann Kranitz.  Before you go though let me tell you quickly about Heathers sale this week...Buy 3 sets get one free....or buy six sets, get two free....you get the  idea right?  What a deal! 

Hope you have fun and find inspiration on our hop...have a wonderful day!     Tammie

SSD 75

Hello Blogger friends!....hope you are having a terrific Tuesday!  Today is sketch challenge day over at Skipping Stones Design blog.....we have the first sketch from our Guest Sketch Artist this month Danielle Flanders.  This is her sketch this week:

I chose a fvorite older SSD set this time called  "Dandelion Dreams".

I love the versatility of this set.  This is my card for this week.

  I have to be honest and say I did struggle with this....My mojo has been suffering a bit as I have been a bit under the weather the last week or so.  I decided to use SU new "IN COLORS" for my color selection...concord grape, pear pizzaz, and pink blush.  The buttons and lace are from the vast stash my mother has supplied me with.  I do like the birds and butterflies and the way you can flutter them about the foliage....and the sayings in this set are fun too.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today...hope your week is a good one!  Please stop by the SSD Blog, to see what the other Stamp Tramps have created this week!

Good morning to you all...Happy Tuesday!  I cannot believe it is May already!!  I am so anxious for spring.  Tuesdays bring another sketch challenge over at Skiping Stones Design....however, this week we have a little twist to the sketch challenge.  We were able to choose our own sketch to design a card to, AND use any SSD Stamp set!  I went to my library of previous sketches and chose this one.
This was sketch 63 by Lea Lawson.  I chose Birthday purses for my stamp set to use....

My card is a little busier than I normally do, but I could not resist using a DP by Cosmo Cricket that had litle purses all over it, and colors I liked.  I thought it would pair well with the purse stamps.  This is what I came up with.

I stamped the purse and paper pieced the handle.  The circle is a nestabilities die.  I shaded the purse a bit with a copic marker.  I found the tiny yellow button in my stash and added it to the purse closure.

Don't forget to stop over to the SSD Blog, and see what sketches and cards the rest of the Stamp Tramps have used to create their cards!

Hope you have a blessed week!
