Cardmaking Weekend

Just got back from a wonderful long weekend. Kind of a mini-card making retreat where my friend I each made a card following a specific sketch challenge.

One of the first ones I did reminds me of the age-old riddle, which came first...the chicken or the egg?


  • Stamps: JessicaLynnOriginal Hoppy Easter set
  • Paper: Cardstock pastels
  • Ink: Rubber Stampede
  • Color: Colored pencils
  • Extras: Glitter pen

More Cardmaking Weekend

Another version of the sketch challenge above. This is the one I made first. As soon as I had seen the SC217 challenge, I knew I wanted to use the stamp Adorabee's Friend from JessicaLynnOriginal.com. Maybe HAPBEE Birthday would have been more appropriate. :)



  • Stamps: JessicaLynnOriginal Adorabee's Friend and Happy Birthday stamp
  • Paper: Cardstock, pattern
  • Ink: Rubber Stampede
  • Color: Markers
  • Extras: Glitter pen, brads

Hoppy Easter

I really wanted to use pastels for my cards this weekend. This one turned out to be kind of a cross between Easter and St. Patrick's Day!



I just love that chicken's face. I colored the top part in to make him a rooster. The hen is out shopping, so he's got egg-sitting duty. He's a little surprised at how she personalized it!

  • Stamps: JessicaLynnOriginal Hoppy Easter set
  • Paper: Cardstock pastels, pattern
  • Ink: Rubber Stampede
  • Color: Colored pencils
  • Extras: Glitter pen, corner rounder

Black, White and Gray Card Swap

This is my contribution to the Black, White & Gray Card Swap on Splitcoast. I used sketch challenge 213 for my layout.


  • Stamps: JessicaLynnOriginal Wedding Words and More stamp set
  • Paper: Cardstock, pattern
  • Ink: Rubber Stampede
  • Color: None
  • Extras: Snowflake embellishment, corner punch
To add some dimension to the sentiment panel, I tapped my stamp pad over the cardstock. I really like that effect.

I Love My Chihuahua Card

While watching the Oscars tonight, I was working on a card for sketch challenge 210 on Splitcoast. It's hard to see in the picture, but the paw print has been gone over with the glitter pen for some added sparkle.


  • Stamps: JessicaLynnOriginal Chihuahua set
  • Paper: Cardstock, pattern
  • Ink: Rubber Stampede
  • Color: Colored pencils
  • Extras: Glitter pen

Save the Oceans


This is another card I did for a sketch challenge. The light blue paper I dabbed with the ink pad and the text is written over with a glitter pen. The two critters are on padding to be 3-D.

Sketch Challenge

Here's a card I made for SCS Sketch Challenge 213. The sentiment and the stamped heart are from the JessicaLynnOriginal True Love and Wedding Words set.
