Beer Mug Card

I found a wonderful sketch over at  Rogue Redhead Designs blog in their challenge called Tilt It Baby.
Loved the sketch!  Just had to use it.  Card is normal sized (4 1/4 X 5 1/2) for a change.  Background paper with the beer mugs is from Printable Haven and the beer mug stamp and verse is from the Drinks sheet of stamps from Wild Frog Creations Rubber Stamps. The beer mug was colored, fussy cut and then embossed with clear embossing ink and clear powder to give it a glassy effect.  The foam  on the beer is fun flock.  Bottoms Up!

Negative Shape Dress Card

Made for a challenge on Midwest Stampers Group.  Basically use the negative piece left over after cutting out a stamped image, die cut or punch.  Fill shape with scraps of leftover designer papers, use as desired.

 I used the dress stamp, umm, I mean the paper left over AFTER I cut out part of the dress from the dress stamp made by Wild Frog Creations Rubber Stamps. Click image for larger pic.  I cut the paper scraps with decorative scissors.

Native American Card

Here is the 2nd card I made with the  images from the Kachina rubber stamp sheet from Wild Frog Creations Rubber Stamps.   The stamps used are the arrowhead, the firebird and the mask. I have a dresser drawer full of envelopes of all sizes and tend to make cards to fit the envelopes.  This is a large 6 1/2" square card.  I used a card sketch from the  Stella Says Sketch Challenge over at Bugaboo Stamps and then found a Canvas and Burlap theme post over at Paper Issues blog that gave me some ideas.  I found the background papers as free printables on the web several months ago.  Added a feather and here it is:

Sorry the scan is crooked and faded out for some reason, the colors are actually quite vibrant. I am entering this card into the following challenges and themes:

Kachina Card

Surprise, I stamped! Maybe I'll come out of the slump for good.  I do hope so.  I started with the Kachina sheet of stamps from Wild Frog Creations Rubber Stamps with absolutely no idea how I wanted the end product to look.  I colored all images at once, cut out the kachina, then went through my background papers and found 5 I liked.  I've had these for over a year and had found them as free online printable scrapbook pages.  Don't remember where.  Then I went online again to find a sketch to use and Voila! found it at Utah Divas International Blog.  I'm not from Utah and not much of a Diva these days (maybe that will change), so I hope they don't mind that I joined in, lol.
Here's the finished product,  a 7 1/4" X 5 1/2" card.

The circle shaped medallion and the kachina image are both layered / raised.  I use double stick mounting foam scraps instead of pop dots.  And here is the sketch:

Guess I took a few liberties.  I am entering this card into:
