Kindred Stamps Witches gotta Stick together with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog today.  I present my take on this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. We are teaming up with Double Trouble Challenge for the next two weeks. I am continuing to use up premade pieces from my stash.  I found this black and pearl alcohol ink background. I decided to continue with the monochromatic theme.  I added washi and die cuts along with a stamped and embossed sentiment.

Here's this week's sketch.

I layered the alcohol background on shimmer paper then a shimmer silver card base.  I used those same papers and more for the die cut foliage.  I almost forgot to mention the halloween charm I added, topped off with twine.  To finish the card I added a few gems.

Here is my desk as I was building the card.

As I enjoy doing, I made a second card with the additional background. Two cards were just logical. However, I changed up the die cuts, charm and washi on this one.  I added a little magical apple!

I die cut multiple flowers and shapes out of monochromatic blacks, grey and whites including shimmers and prints.  I just pulled out my newly organized scraps.  I used Totally Tiffany Collection Keepers for each color.  Well, my blues spilled over into 3 keepers.  I found a bunch at Tuesday Morning a few months ago.  I have successfully filled them all!  It is so easy to find pieces to die cut now in just the right hue.

Scrapbookers Painted Page and Sketches in Thyme

Hello and welcome to my latest layout for Sketches in Thyme (now excusively on Facebook). I thought this week's sketch lended itself to the variety of random pics I have from vacation.  There's sand sculptures, tropical flowers and that famous Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee.  

Here's the sketch.

All these photos were snapped along Seven Mile Beach in Negril.  We stayed there for a few days back in January.

Here's another view.

Cricut Crow with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome to my blog today.  I have my take on the latest Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I wanted to make my first Halloween card of the season with a bit of a non traditional color.  I threw in some pink! It began with the cheek of the crow which I carried over to the collar and banner.  I found some perfect purple, orange and pink dotted paper.

Here's the sketch

I cut my crow with my Cricut.  I stamped the sentiment.
