This card is based on this week's sketch from 2 Sketches 4 You. I used the new set Fox and Friends and the new Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder for the Big shot.
I should add that starting with the Occasions Mini Stampin' Up! is offering their stamps as clear mount stamps which I now LOVE. You can still get the wood mount, too, you just have more options! I had never been all that interested in clear mount stamps before, but one stamp set and I am hooked!
So here is my card using the 2S4Y sketch....
Materials for this card: Fox and Friends stamp set (Occasions Mini); Rose Red, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White card stock; Old Olive Classic Stampin' Pad; Chat Room Rub-Ons (Occasions Mini); Chocolate Chip 1/4 Inch Grosgrain Ribbon; White Gel Pen, Perfect Polka Dot Textured Impressions Folder and Big Shot; 1 3/4 Inch Circle Punch; Stampin' Dimensionals.

Here is what I made for the party:
I have had this idea in my head since I made these for Mother's Day gifts and I decided that now was the time to finally make it. I kid you not this project took me less than 30 minutes to make! (Well, except for looking for the image to use. I did that on another day.)
Here is what you need for this project:
Picture frame (I used an 8x8 frame.)
Patterned scrapbook paper
Coordinating card stock
Glue or other permanent adhesive
Temporary adhesive (optional)
Here is what you do:
1. Find an image you want to make into a silhouette. I found mine on Microsoft's online clip art site.
2. Cut out the image.
3. Turn your image over and trace it on the back of your patterned scrapbook paper and cut out. You may want to stick your image down with temporary adhesive while you are tracing to keep it from shifting. Tracing on the back means you won't have to erase any stray pencil marks.
4. Cut a piece of coordinating card stock to the size of your frame.
5. Glue your silhouette onto the card stock and put it in the frame.
I already had the frame and, of course, I have plenty of scrapbook paper and card stock in my craft stash, so this didn't cost me anything to make, but even if you had to buy the supplies, you should be able to get them for minimal cost.
Materials for this project: Orchid Opulence card stock; Cottage Wall Designer Series Paper. You can order these products here.

I got involved with supporting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society about four years ago through our friend Kelly Linderman. Kelly was diagnosed with Recurrent Hodgkin's Lymphoma in 1997. I learned from Kelly that we need to celebrate even the littlest moments in life. When my life gets hectic and I am feeling overwhelmed I think of Kelly and that in the end, it's not going to matter how many loads of laundry I did today or whether dinner was made from scratch. What matters is spending time with the those we love and celebrating life.
Kelly lost her battle with Lymphoma in 2007. Please help me continue to fight to find a cure for cancer by attending the Cards for a Cure event. We'll be making ten cards for $25 and $10 of your fee will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

It's been a while since I've done a card from 2 Sketches 4 You, so I thought I'd give this week's sketch a try. I really love the Medallion stamp and for this card, I stamped it in Old Olive Craft Ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I used the saying from Fifth Avenue Floral because I like it so much. That is stamped on a tags cut from the Lots of Tags Sizzlets die. I added a Clear Rhinestone Brad to the center of my knot. (I used my Craft and Rubber Scissors to cut off the prongs and attached it with a glue dot.)
I just recently bought the Clear Rhinestone Brads for the first time and I really don't know why I waited so long. I love to use them!
Materials for this card are: Medallion and Fifth Avenue Floral stamp sets; Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Almost Amethyst and Whisper White card stock; Old Olive Craft Stampin' Pad; Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin' Pad; Clear Embossing Powder; 5/8 inch Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon; Clear Rhinestone Brads; Big Shot and Lots of Tags Sizzlet; Stampin' Dimensionals; Glue Dots.

I just recently got this set Under the Stars. I've always thought it was cute and I am teaching a paper bag scrapbook class at a Girl Scout Leaders retreat, so I thought this set would be so perfect for the class! I haven't started designing my scrapbook yet, but I thought that I would play with it a little to see what I could come up with.
Since it's camp season, I thought I would make a card that kids could send home from camp. Do kids even send letters home from camp anymore? Do the just send email these days?
Anyway, the materials for this card are: Under the Stars, Woodgrain, Calendar Alphabet, Taffy Alphabet stamp sets; Always Artichoke, Night of Navy, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa, Real Red and Whisper White card stock; Always Artichoke, Real Red, Night of Navy and Chocolate Chip Classic Stampin' Pads; VersaMarker; Hemp Twine.

Inspiration finally struck this afternoon! I spent this morning designing cards for my Birthday Stamp-A-Stack this weekend and the set Party Hearty was still on my desk. I looked at my desk and say the "Celebrate You" stamp from the set and thought "Ah Ha! that will work!" Then I decided to stamp Dad using the Big Deal alphabet (which is retiring) and my Father's Day cards were born! (Don't worry, Honey. I'm making you a different card.)
Materials for this card: Big Deal Alphabet, Party Hearty stamp sets; Kraft, Bashful Blue and Whisper White card stock; Real Red and Kiwi Kiss Classic Stampin' Pads; 1 3/4 inch Circle Punch; Kiwi Kiss stripped grosgrain ribbon; Stampin' Dimensionals.

This card was inspired by dessert plates I saw in a Crate and Barrel catalog. This is a really quick card to make. I took three strips of card stock, punched them with the Scallop Edge Punch and then layered them on the card. The cupcake was created using the Big Shot and the Big Bold Cupcakes Sizzlits. The greeting is the Birthday Wish stamp from the Under $10 page of the catalog.
Materials for this card: Birthday Wish stamp; Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip and Kiwi Kiss card stock; Baja Breeze Textured card stock; Tangerine Tango Classic Stampin' Pad; Big Shot and Big Bold Cupcakes Sizzlits; Stampin' Dimentionals.

I created this page based on a video from Carrie Cudney of Stampin' Up! that you can view here. This page was really easy and fairly quick to make. I only used a little bit of card stock and the rest is Bella Rose Designer Series Paper. I totally agree with Carrie when she says in the video that one of the things she love about the Stampin' Up! Designer Paper is that since it comes in packs with twelve designs, you don't have to worry about coordination. That's already done for you!
Materials for this page: Warm Words stamp set; Chocolate Chip and Whisper White card stock; Bella Rose DSP; Riding Hood Red Classic Stampin' Pad; Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker; Big Shot, Lots of Tags Sizzlets and Naturally Serif Decorative Strip; Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon; Button Bouquet Designer Buttons; Glue Dots;
