Inspired and Sketches

I am having a really fun time being inspired by blogs lately.  There is just soooo muuuuch to see :). I am also trying to use [at least] all my SU images.. eventually.  This is a challenge Susan from Simplicity has started.  It is also a way to decide if I really need to keep all my stamps!

Today I am playing in a couple of sketches, and yes, I am using Stampin Up stamps.

Deconstructing Jen; sketch

I printed off some digi papers from Mel Stamps.  This women is amazing!  She has tons and tons of digi papers for free! While I don't use digi paper much, for today's sketch, it worked perfect.  I used SU Decorative Pinecone and Paintprints.  [I will not be linking any SU sets - most of mine are so old and probably 85% are retired.  You can always Ebay with the name if any interest you.]  What I adore about Paintprints, is they stamp like water colored images -- which, is popular right now!  I'll be keeping both of these :).  My sentiment is computer generated.  I thoroughly enjoyed this sketch - Thanks Jen :)

For my 2nd card, CASE Study had another amazing sample card created by Lisa Spangler, to be inspired by;

I was inspired by the triangles, and was able to use SU Looks Like Springs.  I love the dual stamping with the diamonds and the fun flowers. Yep, another "keeper". :)

And lastly, another sketch.  This one from CAS(E) this Sketch;

 I really loved the way this turned out!  I used SU Stippled Shells, along with a Jar stamp from Inkadinkado images.  The background is a recycled lemon bag with some actual sand glued to the card and in the jar.  The sentiment is from GKD, Gifts From the Sea.

It's been a fabulous stamping day!!

Thanks for stopping by~
