Two Sticks and Unscripted Sketches

All you really NEED  is "two sticks" (#6006) from STAMPOTIQUE and a sketch from Unscripted Sketches.  :)  Loving BG dp the way I do , this new "out of print" pad is awesome!  I put a tag thru my cb and put on one of my fav buttons (that I hoard) and did a little crazy sewing.  BTW....was thinking of my hub when making this card... TFL!

The Magical Mystery Tour!

Join us for Stampotique's Magical Mystery Tour today.  Why a Magical Mystery Tour?  Comment on all the blogs and along the way we have 2 mystery prizes to give away.  

If you have arrived here from Kaz's blog  then you are in the right place, if not, you may want to begin at the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog and begin your tour from there.

A few weeks ago, Valerie  had us recycling and this week she has us cleaning house again!!!  She's challenging us to dig in our stash to see how many scraps we can use up in our projects.  Just about anything qualifies as a scrap - as long as you're utilizing a piece or part of something that you generated before but never used up... it counts!  So what will it be?  Bits of an old master board or freaky background?  Leftover pieces of your favorite designer paper?  Part of an old piece of grunge board?  Fragments of a previously inked image?  Or the remnants of some odd embellishment?  Let's see just how creative you can be!

As you make your way through the tour make sure you comment on each and every post. There will be 2 prize winners chosen randomly amongst the blogs.  For some additional chances to win another prize join us with our "Scraps" Challenge using your Stampotique stamps for your chance at a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps and at being our August Guest Designer, see our blog for additional information.

Our tour will end on June 28th and the winner or the 2 tour prizes will be announced on our blog on June 29th.  My card is using the images "quasimoto 3 " # 6015 and  "sun design" #2095.  Dp is BG and MANY BG scraps!  Yes...I LOVE BG dp...   :)  So- I have ALOT of scraps!
I also used a scrap of cs that a friend of mine made a flower out of  behind the sun.  I did a little piercing and tried to "shabby it up " a bit.   NOW  YOU will want to hop over to the next blog which is Willy to see what kind of scraps she has used !  Good luck!- Gosh there are SO many cute Stampotique images to choose from!

"sunfleur" and "heads"

Two images from STAMPOTIQUE .  Sunfleur #9167 is colored with copics and simply matted on mustard and put on  cb white cs.  I  tied a little ribbon on it cuz it didnt need anything else! I think she is just adorable.  I am entering this in the Drunken stampers challenge which is a photo inspiration (summer pic) and the Corrosive challenge no. 121 to use ribbons or bows on your card.
 Next is my card for the new Unscripted Sketches no. 111 challenge.  I used  "heads" (Stampotique again)  and trimmed it to fit the sketch.  I cut the strips and just did a little sewing.  Dp is 7 gypsies= nottinghill.  This is really a different sketch for me but I LIKE different! :)  tfl!

Feel like I havent stamped in years!  Just got back from an  awesome little trip out west with my dd and jumped in the card room for the latest CAS challenge given to us from the lovely JOANNE ....Seriously, you NEED to check out her blog...she is the QUEEN of clean and simple! :)  LOVE LOVE LOVE her cards!  CAS is ALWAYS a challenge for me tho I love it and am trying to do it more...This quirky and cute image is one I can really relate to! lol..."the crafter"  #6076 from Stampotique!  I just cut my black base and then 4 strips of dp (K & co wedding, believe it or not! )  and taped them on the base. Then I stamped my crafter girl over it..the black doesnt show any lines.  The sentiment was computer generated and the strips of paper on top were left from my crafter girls' project!  he he!  TFL and dont forget : for this challenge you can use any stamp for a chance to win!
