Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenges

Hi everyone! Ooops, where did the time go? It's already Thursday and the week has just whizzed on by. I've been working on several sketches that have been provided by a stamp company called Stamps and Smiles. I ran across it when I was visiting my friend Linsey's blog and she had some cute sample cards. These cupcake stamps are just too cute and I love their little arms and legs.

I decided to post all three challenge sketches all in one post since I have them all ready at once. I don't have any of the stamps yet, but will hopefully win some or all (maybe?) All you have to do is play along and you could win a set or all too.

Here's Monday's sketch card. Click HERE to see the original sketch and the sneak peek cards that the DT made. I used a super cute Stampendous set called Changito in Space and check out that super cute paper.

Click HERE for Tuesday's sneak peek, sketch and DT examples. Here is mine using a freebie Inkadinkado set that I got. I decided to use a "bar" like background for thief. He's awfully fashionable looking isn't he? (lol) Well, he did have to match my paper. The polka dot paper and cardstock is from Papertrey ink.

Finally, click HERE for Wednesday's sketch, sneak peeks, and DT examples. For this one I used a gifted stamped image from Elzybell. I totally stole this idea of adding texture for the rope swing from my good friend (thank you) and lately whenever I can I use my Flower Soft. I got all mine from Clear Dollar Stamps. Love that stuff!!

And check out those photo corners. I have another crafty friend that let me borrow her Storybook Cricut cartridge that I am definitely going to have to get as soon as I have to give this up. I cut one of the frames and then snipped it with scissors to create the photo corners.

And finally, check out her dress. I used my Copic colorless blender to create the polka dots. You've probably seen it before, but its so cool and I never get tired of seeing it happen each time I do it.

Buttons and sentiment are from Papertrey ink and that cute circle background paper is from TaDa Creative Studios.

Well, that's it for me today. Its wet, wet, wet here. Hope you are dry and happy where ever you may be.
