Hi blog friends!  

It's time for another exciting sketch from Wendy at The House That Stamps Built and you're going to have tons of fun with this one!  

Lots of ways to use patter papers, stamps and dies.  Put your thinking caps on and come on over and play along with me and my Rock Star teamies.  We can't wait to see what you'll do with this sketch.  

Remember, if you use an RI stamp in your creation, you'll be entered twice in a drawing to win a $25.00 gift certificate for Repeat Impression Stamps.  Get the details at The House!  

Here's my card 

How I created this stamped image is going to be a Project of the Week technique on Monday, so don't forget to stop by and find out how I created this image.  

For more inspiration using this sketch, check out the fabulous Rock Stars.

Hi blog friends!  

Linda Anderson has a new CAS Challenge over at Outlawz Challenges this week and for me it WAS a challenge.  She's asking us to use ONLY black and white on our color!!!  YIKES!!!!!  

I'm always reaching for some color to add to my card projects so to be limited to just the black and white proved more difficult than I thought.  Why not stretch your CAS style in this limited way and see what you might come up with.  

I created two cards for the challenge - the first one was my attempt at some sponge stenciling and then building layers with Dylusions "White Linen" ink spray and heat embossing.  The foreground floral stamps were a free gift from PTI.

The butterfly was cut twice, once in black cs and once in white from a Cheery Lynn die and was a gift from my sweet, sweet Scottish Sister and Aussie friend, Ina Grehan.  (Thank you, SS).  

My second card is one that just came together from scraps on my table.  The buttons came from the discount bin at Michaels several months back.  

I hope you'll grab some time this week and head on over to Linda's CAS challenge at Outlwaz and play along.  Don't forget, there's a new challenge at the Outlawz every day.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you all have a great week!!!
