Sunday afternoon was filled with lots of fun stamping, the sun was shining and the weather fair, but what does one do when your yard has at least 4-6 feet of snow in it?  STAMP!  To get my creative juices flowing I usually start out with a sketch & color combo and go from there. 


Here is the Saturday Sketch 139 Challenge


Here is what I created for the Saturday Sketch Challenge 139.

Here is a fun technique for you to try called Shadow Dancing or 3-D Stamping. 

First stamp the image with Craft Whisper White, then using your stamp-a-ma-gig re-stamp with the same color as your card stock just a little up and off to the side to get the shadow effect.  Very easy technique and fun to try. 

I used the Sketch from this weeks Split Coast Challenge SC268 and a Technique Challenge SCTC4 from Stampin' Connection (a place for Stampin' Up! demonstrators to share with each other). 

Hope you enjoy.  I am sorry that last week I wasn't able to post very much, was recovering from a severe Kidney Infection.  On the mend now…and hoping to get back on track.
