Try Stampin' On Tuesday challene 264

Here I am again, have you noticed that the Try Stampin' posts come every 2 weeks here?  Well that's because I am on the Team A of the blog.  There are two teams and each challenge runs for 2 weeks with them overlapping.  So that means a new sketch is posted every week, more fun, fun, fun!!!  Come join us either here on a blog or on facebook, Some can only see facebook so if you could and would join our Group: Try Stampin' on Tuesday or Not. and post your card there along with the blog page.

Ok ready for my card?  I was VERRRRRY loose with this sketch!!!!  let me show you my card then I'll show you the sketch.

You may be asking yourself...How does that follow the sketch well let me tell you about my Vision.

I turned the whole card sideways...The long piece on the right of this card I replaced with the railroad crossing sign and moved to the left.... The circle was viewed as the train.... and the long strip across the card is the railroad track.  The three dots are my choo, choo, choo...

So there you have it, what is your take on this lovely sketch, it's all in the eye of the beholder!!!!  Come play with us, we'd love to see what you can do with this. Oh yes, the theme is helping hands....hmmm how can I apply that?  It does take many hands to run a train, maintain the track.... how                                                   does that sound?  :0)     Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by, hey
                                          here's a novel thought... Leave me a comment and tell me what you think
                                          of my vision on this one!  I'd really love to hear what you think of it!!!

Try Stamping on Tuesday challenge 262

     Okay I Didn't follow the theme and I blew it with the sketch!!!  I have a small excuse, he's about 18 months old and Grandma has had him for the last three days because mommy has been in the hospital.  Normally he is a jewel and so good but he is teething and has been very clingy. His life is topsy turvy right now and I'm sure that is part of it also.  That being said I was going on memory of what the sketch looked like and I got it a little wrong.  I really don't have time to re-make it so I'm just going with what I've done.  (Nap times are great, even if they are SHORT!!)

I've used Stampin' Up products for most of this card, I believe the ribbon is not.  If you look closely you can see a sentiment on the clear ribbon.  I really appreciate you stopping by and I hope you'll forgive me for not getting things quite right this time.  Have a great day...one with a little/lot of stamping in it.  tee hee.

Creative Card Crew 108 challenge - Chicks

Welcome to another challenge, this one was fun for me since I live on a farm and decided to get a chick image to work with.  In the spring we always raise little ones and then use them all the rest of the year for giving us eggs.  We are brown egg people and so I've colored them that way.  You  should join us, this is a fun one there are a bunch of ways to interpret this one.

108 - Chicks (animal or human kind)

8 March

A Day for Daisies

Prize: $12 gift card


I colored all with copic's and then cut the chicks out and added dimensional foam to make them pop.
I thought about doing Happy Spring which would have be nice but I didn't have a spring die and as we have lots of  birthdays this month decided to go with birthday.  I made a resolution to send birthday cards this year so it will be used.  I've had this gate fold die for a long time and never used it so it was fun to make it work with this adorable image from A Day for Daisy's and the Tilda image with the eggs in her apron.
  If  your interested, I'm one of the designers for the Magnolia March that uses the magnolia stamps made in Sweden. It is a month long event that has demonstrators assigned to each day of the week, and they will be posting every day of the week. I'm scheduled for Fridays, my first video is on this blogspot on the previous.  
Well thank you so much for popping in and I do hope you like my vision, it was fun to make. I would love to hear from you comments are sooooo nice   :0)

TSOT Challenge 260

Hello, and thank you for stopping by Vicki's Visions.  I have created a vision with a little help from Pinterest.  I saw a card using these two sale-a-bration sets and thought it was so cute, this is my CASE'ing of that card.  I love this little chick, every spring we get some of these little cuties.  Often they are yellow as here on  this card although sometimes we have other colors-  I'll have to try my hand at coloring them.  We are getting close to the end of SAB time.     One more month to go (March 31) , so if there is anything your still wanting now is the time.

For my card I once again turned the sketch 90 degrees.  Remember a card sketch is just a guide- you can turn it, add a little to it, just have fun with it. I choose not to follow the theme and that's okay also. I kept this card fairly simple and clean.  I hope I've inspired you to play along, it is so great to see what everyone else comes up with.

I used watercolor paper on the chick panel mounted on Artichoke, Very vanilla card base, Daffodil delight ribbon and banner.(The corner punch and sentiment are not stampin' up)


Theme: In Like A Lamb or A Lion?

TSOT 591. Fun panel card

 Our technique this time is layering. I decided to not follow the sketch and just do some layering. I’m not sure this is what they really me...
