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!
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 :P 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….
