A Confetti Filled Card!

Hi everyone,

Well it is another dreary day in Minnesota, so it makes for a fantastic day to spend in my craft room working on this weeks Paper Players Sketch challenge.

As you may or may not know, the NEW Annual Catalog by Stampin’Up! debuted on June 4th.  I have lots of new stampin’ stash that has just been calling my name.  If you do not have a demonstrator and would like a copy of the catalog,  please comment and I will send one right out to you.

The sketch challenge for this week looks like this:

Here is my take on the sketch.  One of my grand-daughters loves, loves, loves dinosaurs, and I love her to pieces….  and that is what  generated the idea for a confetti filled card.  I used really bright and cheerful colors, just like her.  And the Designer Series Paper is sized to the dies for the “long neck”.  I am certain she will love it!

I also want to show you the inside of the card filled with heart confetti using the Stitched Be Mine dies.  I can just hear her say, “Oh Grandma” when she opens it!

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I love comments…..

Here is the list of products  used to create her card:

Come Sail Away with Me!

You are my true North!

Well it is Sunday and time for another round of weekly challenge.  This week is a sketch challenge and I could not help but use the NEW Stampin’Up! product suite coming to you on June 4th.

So here is the sketch challenge:







And….. here is my creation.  I can hardly contain myself over this NEW products suite.  It has the most beautiful sentiments and imagery, and not to mention designer series paper and embellishments.  I hope you like my interpretation of the sketch, and be sure to comment as I love hearing from you.
