Show us your sketch at Totally Stampalicious

I can't believe another week has gone by!  Totally Stampalicious has another challenge for you.  This week we would love to see your favorite go-to sketch.  Show us the sketch, then show us your card.  

I have to confess, I don't usually use sketches.  I don't have a favorite.  I do however, have a whole board dedicated to them on Pinterest!  LOL  I decided to look at those and pick my favorite to show you.  Here it is, from Sweet Sunday Sketch:

And here is my card:

I have used Stella Peeker Another Drink that you can find HERE at the Totally Stampalicious store.  I have of course tweeked the sketch a little bit.  I decided not to have the banner/ribbon down the middle of the card, and I have also added some buttons.

I would like to add this to the following challenge:

I hope you are able to play along with us this week, I'm looking forward to seeing all these new sketches!

Paper Piecing at Totally Stampalicious

Good morning and happy Monday to you!  The kids have a day off of school today, so we are working on cleaning their rooms and making the place spic and span!  I am happy to have gotten caught up on paperwork and errands this weekend, so if we can get the house clean then I will be ahead of the game!  Go me! LOL

Monday means it is time for another challenge at Totally Stampalicious!  This week we would like to see some paper piecing on your card.  I love this new set Stella Wine, and the first thing I said when I saw it was that it would be awesome for paper piecing.  Stella didn't let me down! LOL  Doesn't she look amazing!

I would love to add this to the following challenges:
Bugaboo Bingo - No DP, Bugaboo Image, starts with P (polka dots)
Alphabet Challenge - Y is for yummy
Sweet Pea - CAS no embellishments

Don't forget that all stamps are currently $5 in the Totally Stampalicious Store!  Get them while they last!

I hope everyone has a Stampalicious Monday and a wonderful week!

Favorite 3-color combo!

It's a Totally Stampalicious Monday!  Thanks to all who participated in our new release blog hop last week!  Be sure to check the blog to see if you are a winner!  Today's challenge is to show us your favor three color combination.

My color combo is light blue, pink and gray.  For my card I am using one of the new release stamp sets.  This one is called Balloon Critters and you can find it HERE in the Totally Stampalicious store.

I stamped and colored this cutie with copics first.  Next step was to use an embossing pen and heat emboss what I had colored in clear.  I made two masks for clouds out of scrap paper and sponged in the blue sky.  I mounted the panel to straight white because I didn't want to detract from the image.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:

Quirky Challenges - something new with pink (new stamp, pink balloon)
The Squirrel and the Fox - anything goes
Addicted to CAS - embossing
