In this DOstamper Stars sketch challenge I took a little different approach to it. Instead of layering it up, I layered it down. How I did this is by making a Shaker Card. I am just loving all the different Shaker cards that I have seen lately. They are so much fun!! And who wouldn't enjoy getting one!
I love how this card turned out!!
What I like most about this card is all the GREAT embellishments!! And besides it is a shaker card! When I first seen the Pom - Pom trim I wasn't that excited about it....but then it just grew on me and now I am loving it! I also love the Sequin trim that came out about a year ago in Gold. But with the Occasion Catalog that came out, they now have it in Bermuda Bay Sequin Trim. These trims just give it that extra little touch!
Inside the shaker part of the card I took the Sequin Assortment with some punched out Silver Glitter Paper. To punch out the little circles I used the 1/8 Hole punch. I added these to give that sparkle! The saying on the card from a new set that also came out in the Occasions Catalog. This set is a great birthday set. It is called "Balloon Bash", below is a picture of the set.
Loving this set!
Here are a few of the other DOstamper Stars that have participated in this weeks challenge. Go check out their blogs.
This week is a color challenge for the DOstamper Stars. LOVE - LOVE this color combo!! You too can join in on the fun with all the starts. We would love to see what your creation looks like as well. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post your creation right here for everyone to see. How great is that!
Two of the colors are In Colors. Do you know which ones they are? If you said Blackberry Bliss (My all time favorite) and Hello Honey, you are right. Rich Razzleberry is also a very rich looking color.
As you can see in the flowers they are 2 toned, I inked up the stamp in Rich Razzleberry and then rolled the outside edges in Blackberry Bliss. This is called Rock -n- Roll technique. I did take a sponge and soften the color contrast a little. I really like how these to colors offset each other. Wondering about the flower itself...it is a new set that Stampin' Up! came out with in the Occasion Catalog. It is called "Petal Potpourri". What is even better - is that you can buy the stamp set and the punch as a bundle and SAVE 15%!
How great is this!!
I really like that Stampin' Up! has come out with bundles that saves us 15%!
The Hello Honey striped Designer Series Paper that is on the card comes from the "Moonlight DSP Stack".
Gotta love the stacks!
For the saying "Sending Wishes Your Way" comes from a new set that has come out in the Occasions Catalog, it is called "Butterfly Basics". Again Stampin' Up! has bundled this stamp set with Butterfly Thinlits so that you can SAVE 15%

Welcome to another week of the DOstampers challenge Thursday. What I love about a Sketch challenges is that it gives you your starting base for making your project and it helps make your creativity easier.
With my card and the sketch I wanted to do something a little different. I wanted the sketch to come out in the stamping instead of layers. I believe I accomplished that!
The stamp set that I used is one of my favorites, it is called "Kinda Eclectic".
I also added a little dimension in the background of the card with the stamp set called "Gorgeous Grunge". This is my ultimate favorite set!
For the ribbon bow I used Early Espresso Seam binding ribbon. I took and looped it back and forth and then took the Antique Brad and put that around it. Added a little bling with the Gold Sequins as the ends to the bow and then wrapped a little Linen Thread behind the bow to give it that grunge look.
If you would like to join in on the DOstampers challenge you are more then Welcome too! Below is a list of some of the other DOstampers participating in this weeks challenge. Enjoy!
For the color combo it was easy! I used the FREE designer series paper that you can get with placing a $50.00 dollar order. The DSP is calledBest Year Ever!This paper is so soft in color, but yet it has the POP factor going on. You can also get the Ribbon and Button pack that goes with this DSP FREE.
For the rest of the card I used a NEW set that is in the Occasion Catalog called "Celebrate Today". There are so many thing's that I like about this set...it is just a great set for celebration of different events, it has framelits to cut out your stamped images on the Big Shot, it has all the decorative attachments for the balloons, I could keep going on and on but you have to see it for yourself. Below it shows the stamp set with the framelits and look at all the balloon accessories you can add to make your project even better!!
I hope you enjoyed this weeks DOstamper challenge. You too can play along with the rest of the DOstampers in the challenges. Listed below are a few of the other DOstampers that have played along this week.
It is that time of the week for another DOstamper Challenge. This week we have the picture challenge. What is the 1st thing that comes to your mind when you look at the picture? Mine was Butterflies! And of course I knew exactly the Thinlits set I wanted to use.
Butterflies Thinlit Dies
What is really great about these thinlits is that a stamp set goes with it!!
Butterfly Basics Stamp Set
Even better then a stamp set that goes with the thinlits........ you canBUNDLE the thinlits and stamp set and SAVE 15%! It couldn't get any better than that!!
Gotta Love Stampin' Up!
A little bit of grunge to go with the butterfly.
I believe these NEW Butterfly thinlits will be used allot!! They are so delicate looking. On this card I also used the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp set. Another one of my favorites! This stamp set can be used in so many different card types or you can even use it in your scrapbooking. I also used the Blendabilities Markers to color the Pearls and Rhinestones. Did you know right now you can get a set of Blendabilities Markers for FREE? It is Sale-A-Bration time and when you place an order for $50.00 you can choose an item out of the Sale-A-Bration catalog for FREE!! Can't get any better than that!!
Below you will find a list of items that I used on this card.
