Happy Sunday! Here is this week's sketch from Operation Write Home. The patterned paper was my starting point and is the "B" side of the Floral District poppy paper I used in last week's sketch. The newsprint was left over from a Tim Holtz tag I did last fall. All products are from Stampin' Up!

Since I haven't been doing much scrapbooking lately I thought it would be fun to follow along with Shimelle and her scrapbook sketches. In this sketch her focus is on the large photo....something I would have never thought of using as a background. I used Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio software because my photos have yet to make it to the printer.

Here is this week's sketch from Operation Write Home. I had planned to stick with the masculine theme but I've been wanting to use this poppy themed paper from the Floral District designer series paper pack and this sketch seemed to be the perfect opportunity to showcase the flowers. I also added some flower brads which just happened to match the Pumpkin Pie card stock perfectly. The background is textured Chocolate Chip on a Naturals White card base. The sentiment is a rub on from the Chit Chat set.

Here is my take on last Sunday's sketch from Operation Write Home. I used the ferris wheel stamp from the Feeling Sentimental set (available Jan 26th) and added a rub on sentiment from Chat Room. The natural trim ribbon is also new from Stampin' Up. Another masculine card!

In Stampin' Up's new Spring Catalog they came out with cute soda pop tops in two different sizes, 1" and 1/2". I thought it would be cool to run it through my Big Shot machine to flatten it out which would also solve the problem of mailing a bulky card. Pretty cool, it actually worked.

One thing I realized last year is that I have very few masculine themed cards. So what better way to start off the new year than with a Father's Day card for Operation Write Home's Sketch #154? I used the antique bike stamp from the Feeling Sentimental sale-a-bration set (available Jan 22nd) and layered it over Fan Fair designer series paper. I distressed all the edges with Espresso ink.

Back in September of 2012 I started following along with Operation Write Home's weekly sketch challenge and was doing pretty good until the holidays. I haven't totally caught up yet but here is Sketch #152 and Sketch #153. My cards are definitely loose interpretations of the sketches...just in case you're wondering.

Happy 2013 and welcome to my blog. Once again I will be posting my version of Tim's 12 Tags of 2013 made from all Stampin' Up! products (unless otherwise noted). For this month's tag I chose to go with Not Quite Navy card stock and the new Honeycomb textured impressions embossing folder. I distressed with matching ink and added silver ink highlights with water. The gears and the text were cut from Crumb Cake cardstock using a Silhouette. The ticket tag is also new and from the set called That's the Ticket. (Note: the filmstrip is not Stampin' Up!)
