It's a double Page layout this week !

Doing some more pages for my DD's Taiwan Pop Idols album .

So it's only fitting to use the new Rusty Pickle's Pop star collection of pps, Samantha Walker's Swirl Die Cut CS, Fancy Pants Felt shapes , Maya Road Office Sheer Journaling Spot

I used stickles & glitter glue on the patterned papers & the felt arrow but that's probably hard to see from these pics.

Kazan's card challenge with a Yummy Souffle Prize !

Fellow My Sketch World Card DT team mate Kazan Clark does beautiful card sketches and is a genius with her card & scrapping creations if you haven't discovered her blog yet.

She has a sketch challenge this week ending Sunday May 25 with a Sakura Souffle Pen Set as a prize !

My cardmaking mojo isn't much present and so I came up with something simple to try out some new Sandylion Butterflies & Candy Stripes patterned paper & coordinating stickers, added an Amanda Bru chipboard Butterfly & tried some penwork with the white Inkssentials opaque pen

Triple the Sketch 6 / Cute Card Thursday - Gems

Not too sure if this card qualifies well for cute or even a joyous occasion given the colours !
I do know I bought these Memory Box Co 6x6 paper pad called Aerial for the cute birds in the patterns .
Finally using my new Cuttlebug Script & Diamonds in the Rough folders which arrived this week
( for non-US residents - an order of 8 folders would seem to maximise shipping costs & I bought mine from - no complaints at all! There are other sites too but I wouldn't recommend ebay though.)
- I also distressed the brown Core'dinations cardstock & did some inking everywhere including the Prima Flowers from the Essentials 4 PACK.
Finished off with Champagne pearls by Kaiser Scrapbook.

Di Hickman's Card Sketch May #1

Supply List : Core'Dinations Black magic cardstock, DCWV Glittered cardstock, May arts ribbon, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Glimmer Mist Seafoam, Pink Paislee Holly Doodle Cubicle Stickers.

I had fun distressing the edges of the cardstock - core color blue - sanding it after embossing & finally gave it a few sprays of Glimmer Mist Seafoam

sketches by tamara #43

With this week's sketch I finally found a way to use the Luxe Design Transparently Yours Bracketology transparency for the flourishes ( it also comes with a pair of black oversized brackets which I couldn't use here ) . I love the painting on the wall in the photo & this flourished transparency helps to extend the design .

I used Jenni Bowlin Bracket cardstock on top of a Hambly Transparency backed by Kraft paper.

Other Supplies : Hambly rub ons, Jenni Bowlin Bingo card , Glizt Design chipboard feathered friend, Teresa Collins Tags & Diamonds Journaling Spot, 7 gypsies stickers , Flair Design cardstock stickers, Heidi Swapp Cuttlebug embossed mini ghost shapes.

Definitely one of my favourite layouts for now .
Don't forget to check out all the DT samples here .
