So this is the weekly challenge for Retro Sketches. I stayed pretty true to the sketch, except, I would NORMALLY use different pattern papers, but instead I used all white card stock, inked, with different textures. I like the way it came out. Of course I used a stamp from Unity Stamp Co – Live What You Love.
Wow! I’ve done more challenges this week than I ever thought possible! I’m thinking I have to keep a notebook just to keep track of them all! I’m glad I’ve had the last 3 days off so I could work on them all. Here is the last one for today.
Unity Stamp Co. September challenge – PENNANTS and BANNERS
A very simple card. I used a miscellaneous Unity Stamp Co. stamp – colored with Copic Sketch Markers and then added pennants I created using My Minds Eye – Fine & Dandy Girl 6X6 Paper Pack . The sentiment is from Could I be any Cuter?” set.
Well, this was a fun little challenge. Time consuming as all get out, but fun!
I just recently received my first set of Lawn Fawn clear stamps… LOVE!
So, through this challenge I’ve determined that… I don’t like fussy cutting. LOL! Whew, I didn’t think I would ever get this one done. Anyway…….. Enjoy!
I have to say that I am enjoying all the challenges that I’ve been doing the last couple of weeks. It’s really gotten me to think outside of the box and do things I wouldn’t normally do and just to really think about my card as I put it together.
I entered the Unity Kit Of the Month Challenge for the month of October 2012. The object was to use any Unity Kit of the Month Club and make a card based on the following sketch:
And here is the card I made:
The ice cream cones came from the Unity KOM for 3/2011 – “Just You…” and the sentiment from the Unity KOM for 6/2011 “All Smiles”
- Various Copic Sketch Markers
WCMD – Unity Stamp Co. Challenge #8 – Color Challenge!
Primary color combo: Cream, Brown, Olive and Pumpkin
BLOSSOM STACKERS I just love them! They are quickly becoming one of my favorites! They coordinate with Spellbinder’s Blossom Tags and Accents! Yeah.. I love em!Additional supplies:
WCMD – Unity Stamp Co. Challenge #7 – Coloring
Now this was going to be a HARD challenge for me. I don’t have a lot of stamps that actually require coloring, so I went through my index and found a few to choose from. Also, I still need a lot more practice with my Copic Sketch Markers. Anyway, this is what I came up with. The stamp is from an older KOM set and the sentiment is from the “Could I be any Cuter?” set.
WCMD – Unity Stamp Co. Challenge #6 – Stamp A Border
So the object of this challenge is to take a stamp that is NOT considered a border stamp and make it into one. I chose these adorable little penguins from “Jillibean Soup – Christmas Even Chowder“. I love the way the card came out. I used stickles & copic markers on the hat and diamond glaze on the eyes. Cute!
WCMD – Unity Stamp Co. Challenge #5 – Fall Card
I love making Fall cards. I think it’s the colors I love most of all. I decided with this card to make a CAS card (Clean & Simple). And simple it was. I still love it though! The tree is from the “Could I Be Any Cuter” set and was colored using Copic Sketch Markers. And the sentiment is from a previous KOM.
WCMD – Unity Stamp Co. Challenge #4 – Card Sketch
So, we were asked to use the following sketch when we created our card.
Unity Stamp Co. Challenge #3 – Embossing
Embossing has to be one of my favorite techniques. Simple, yet it looks so nice. The stamp I used came from the “Devotion Collection – Love Never Fails” set. The background was made using the “Christy Tomlinson – Wood Grain Script” stamp.
