SGC20: new studio g challenge

happy sunday!!!  we FINALLY got the porch done for halloween – not much – just halloween lights across the bushes, some creepy characters hanging from the roof edge and a few other items on the porch near the door.  of course we have a pile of pumpkins and gourds too!

today is the day Michelle issues a new studio G challenge over on PCP (Paper Craft Planet) – this time it’s a sketch challenge.  and a gret one too – LOTS of options to go with on this one for sure!!  Now i know a good many of you reading this came here initially looking for studio G updates and collect these things just as avidly as i do!  but it just breaks my heart when i read MB threads with folks saying they don’t USE them!!!  hey they ARE only a buck but it is only a FAB deal if you break them out AND STAMP!!!  PLUS you could win a prize too!!!!  a set of stamps from ahmpton arts!  if you are one of those that has trouble then be sure and watch my video tutorial on You Tube!! i PROMISE you will get a perfect, clean, crisp image every time you stamp!

SGC20 sketch

the sketch is fantastic!  i struggled with it a bit not because i couldn’t figure out what to do with it but because i had so many options!  if only the amount of time i have to craft matched the amount of ideas i have to craft!


i finally settled on one:


Instead of squares i decided to cut out some ornament shapes with my cricut and stamp on those.  i used 2 stamps i just got from the Ms christmas set.  i didn’t go to Ms for 2 weeks and they got them and sold them at both my Ms.  they were only a handful left so i managed to get 3 of the whole set 😛  but i do LOVE these!  Rather than ink the edges i decided to stickle instead!  the tops are gold liquid pearls.  i am IN LOVE with teeny self adhesive rhinestones lately.  i got a BUNCH in every color back in the summer and then never used them.  even gave half of alot of them to cat at the time because it seemed like i had way too many.  now i love them and didn’t see ANY at my Ms!!  eek!  these are tiny and they were some cheap knock off brand – just in rows – love ’em!  finished off the card with skittles and pezabling of course – the perfect accessory always!

now i am off to clean house – fun fun….
