Try Stampin' on Tuesday #350

Well here it is, I played around with a couple different ideas and then came up with this. I kinda like it, I do hope you enjoy playing with this sketch.  I did not follow the suggested theme, but remember it is just a suggestion.  Have a great day.

#349 Try Stampin' On Tuesday

   It just occured to me that our name allows you to stamp on Tuesday but we as designers have to stamp on a different day so this goes live for you to see on Tuesday :0) So I've said all that to say that I stamp on the other days of the week for these postings, I'm so glad to stamp on any day of the week aren't you?
    Having a one and three year old at this stage of my life I'm finding is tiring!  How did I ever do it with 4 at the age of 5 and under?!?! My daughter-in-law is having the extended family for Thanksgiving(around 25-30) so I've been a very hands on Grandma for a couple weeks so she can get some deep cleaning done. Today was an unexpected day to babysit so I'm getting this up at the end of the day.
   I really enjoy making easel cards and have had this thought in my head all week and finally got the card done. Now I do hope that you'll join us for this sketch, we sure would love to see a lot of postings!

Here is the sketch to try using if you so desire and the optional theme below. I think I got this one with the silver bells and the easel card both. What do you think?  (I did NOT cut all the jungle bells out by hand :0)  they were cut with a die from Stampin' Up after I heat embossed them with silver.)  What do you think? I probably will Not be mass producing this one even with the die help.  Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear from you. By the way Happy Thanksgiving!

Optional Theme:  Silver Bells or Easel Card

94 years young - TSOT #348

Oh Hello!! here we are on Tuesday again with another challenge.  I'm so glad you've stopped by.  My card for this challenge was made for my Mother-in-law who turned 94 last month.  She really loves to watch hummingbirds and has a feeder outside every year.  So in honor of her 94th  birthday I made this card.  I think the sketch is one that could be used so many different ways, be sure to check out all the other designers just click here Try Stampin' to go to the home page.

Challenge # 347 with a little surprise!!

Hello everyone!  It is November, wow has this year ever flown by. Try Stampin is now under new management, we are all sad to see CherylAnn go but really owe her a deep well of gratitude for starting this challenge site and picking us to be on it.  The site will mostly stay as is with possibly a few minor changes.  We do hope that you will keep playing along with us and please let us know if there is something that you like or don't like. We want to keep you with us creating cards and gifts, it really is so rewarding to have someone grateful for the time spent to create for them.

I worked on this card last week and hadn't put it all together when I had a light bulb moment.  I've had this Katherine pop out die for about 4 months and haven't used it yet.  When I was looking at my card thinking it needs something more I realized it would be great with the pop out.  This die can be used with a window card opening like I have here or  without for a greater surprise to the recipient,
I have an inside picture below.  Check out all the other designers and be sure to add your card for this challenge.  (just click the blue word designers and it will take you directly to Try Stampin' site)

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...
