Sparkly and Bright – Stamping 411 Sketch 207

Hello,

It feels so good to stamp!! I finally had a chance to create in my stamp room. The best part was I was just stamping for fun!! I decided to play along with this weeks sketch over at Stamping 411. I love participating in sketches as it makes you think outside your creative zone and it's a good place to start for you projects!!

I thought this week I would show you some of my favourite products that are retiring!! Remember you only had till June 30th to order your favourites before they are gone for good!!

So today, I'm sharing one of my favourite Christmas set Sparkly and Bright.  I don't think I will be letting this one go…way too cute!! Also, I have to say that this was my favourite Christmas Designers Series Paper. I love Holly Jolly DSP!!!

It's hard to tell from the photo, but I put Crystal Effects on his nose.

Hello,

Note: I'm so excited as my card was pick as the Operator Picks for Sketch Challenge #196. Thank you ladies!!!

I hope you are having a great day!! Last night I had a chance to play along with this weeks Stamping 411 sketch. This sketch was perfect as I was working on samples for my upcoming classes. 

My youngest daughter Alison loves to stamp with me. She loves to go through the catalogue and pick out goodies to add to her wish list. I thought I would surprise her by ordering this set for her. I thought it would be perfect for this week's sketch!!

The set that I used was Totally Tool…it's a great set for the men in our lives!!! I used a blender pen and my watercolour crayons to colour in my tools as I want them to have a softer look to it then it I had used markers.
