SSS230...Thanks For Being Precious to Me

Time for another Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge.

My starting point was a beautiful pad of paper by Recollections. I pulled out a few gorgeous sheets with coral pinks and taupe's. I used my favorite go to set for feminine cards and fabulous sentiments, Precious Poppies. I stamped the larger poppy image directly onto the floral pattern paper and then again on the pink polka dotted paper. I paper pieced the flowers and left the rest as is.  I added some pretty lace trims and a bow with a button center.

Now it's our turn. Head over to The Sweet Stop blog and see what the rest of the Sugar Babies made and then link up your project for the sketch this week.

SSS229...Best Friends

This week we have a spin with the Sweet Stop Sketch.  The spin is School Time.  I wasn't sure where to go with this one at first. I'm way past my own school years and don't have any children school.  So I went through some already printed Digi Stamps and found a fun image by Mo Manning. Since. The one girl is holding a binder and a book. That fits the School Time bill for me.

I pulled out a paper pad I got from Walmart a while ago and made sure I colored the image very brightly. The black just pulls it all together.  I moved the piece represented by the star to the left to accommodate the image of the girls.

Now it is your turn. Head over to The Sweet Stop Sketch blog for more inspiration by the Sugar Babies and upload you project for the sketch with a spin this week.

SSS228...Happy, Loved and Blessed - Most of all Thankful

Time for another Sweet Stop Sketch. For this sketch I stretched the card base and made it to fit a business size envelope.

The card base is Early Espresso. I found the awesome pattern paper at Hobby Lobby and bought a bunch of it. I love the message and the colors. I pulled the colors of the card from the paper. I love the fun silhouette leaf stamps from the Leaf Silhouettes set. I used some words from the Mini Tags & Sentiments set. And the Happy Thanksgiving sentiment is from the Save the Turkeys set. So many different sets that work perfectly together. I pulled it together with some fun twine and a wooden button.

I can't wait to see what you've done with the sketch this week. There are so many possibilities. You can see what the other Sugar Babies made and enter a link to your newly made card over at The Sweet Stop Sketch blog. So get stamping.

SSS227...Save the Turkeys

The weather is cooling down here, and that means Autumn is on it's way. Plus Starbucks started selling Pumpkin Spice drinks about a week ago. I've had several Iced Pumpkin Spice Chai Lattes. Yum! My favorite Autumn holiday, of course is, Thanksgiving. And lucky for the guy on my card I am sharing today, I don't eat turkey. So he is saved. :)

I used the SNSS set, Save the Turkeys. I bought this set last year after Thanksgiving when it was on sale. This is my first time inking it up. Isn't he just so cute with his little sign. I pulled out my stash of Autumn papers and used two different patterns from Hobby Lobby. I used some vinyl backed burlap I got at Michael's for the larger banner and added some large brads to the top to hold it down.

Now it's your turn to use the Sweet Stop Sketch for this week and create something. You can share a link to your project over at The Sweet Stop Sketch blog and while you are there check out what the other Sugar Babies created with the sketch.

Have a super weekend! And if you have some free time, make sure you stop by SplitCoastStampers Sweet N Sassy Stamps Member Company Forum to learn about the new sets that were just released and join the challenges that are going on right now. I also plan to participate in some of the Virtual Stamp Night challenges at SCS, hope to see you there.
