Beate's Sketch Sideways

This is a card that I made using Beate's weekend sketch and the color challenge from SCS.

This sketch was very hard at first. Because I knew the stamp set I wanted to use and it did not fit the sketch. So I turned it sideways. The background is flannel plaid and the ribbon is the twill stamped with the sentiment from the stamp set. I love the way that came out.
Stamps: Let's Hear it For the Boys, Flannel Plaid
Ink: SU Markers, Pallet Black, Glorious Green
Paper: PTI White, Gable Green, Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Brads, Twill Tape, Punches, Silver marker.

Thanks for looking!!!

My "New" ATG Gun

This is really my old ATG gun, however I decided since I was going to a meetup that I needed to do something to it so that I could tell it apart from everyone elses. First I started with alcohol inks in purple and it looked terrible. Then I decided to paint it pink. Well needless to say it is now a purple/pink marble color. I then used the SAB rub ons to decorate it and also a few rhinestones in the flowers and stickles in the handle...

If you noticed the lovely stand it was purchased from Molly-Mo on SCS. You can see her add here on ebay.... ATG Gun Holder

Happy Birthday

This is a birthday card that I made from the "Piece of Case" from PTI. I do love this and all the stamps sets from them. What I did was stamped the flowers on the cardstock. Then used nestabilities to cut a square out of it. Then stamped the cake on a separate sheet and glued it to the back. Then made the from with the nestabilities out of the perfect plum. I then used the sentiments for the tag and some ribbon and the slit punch and the corner rounder. Next was my favorite, putting on the pearls and stickles.
Stamps: Piece of cake
Paper: kraft, PTI white
Ink: pretty in pink and perfect plum
Accessories: punches, stickles, pearls, eyelets, nestabilities.
