CPS & Papertrey Ink....

....a lovely combination! Papertrey Ink is this week's sponsor for sketch #104 at the CPS blog. We were sent the "Background Basics: Retro" set and the "Tags for Spring" set, along with a sampler of cardstock. The next four cards posted all use the Papertrey Ink cardstock and stamps in some way.

First up is my card for this week's sketch at CPS. This card features both stamp sets, and the Dark Chocolate & Sweet Blush cardstock from Papertrey Ink. I also used Basic Grey "Bittersweet" paper, May Arts ribbon, Doodlebug Designs & Darice jewels, and my Martha Stewart lace border punch. I used timber brown Staz-On ink to stamp the images, and Clearsnap chalk ink to edge the papers.I used sketch 102 again for this card, just flipped it on it's side. I used the White & Sweet Blush cardstock from Papertrey Ink, along with the "Tags for Spring" set on this card. I used Saddle Brown Staz-On and Doodlebug "Bubblegum" pigment ink to stamp the images. Other product includes Scenic Route "Sanoma" & American Crafts paper, Making Memories ribbon, and Heidi Swapp jewels. (The scalloped circle was also cut using my Cricut Expression & the Accent Essentials cartridge.) This card also uses the "Tags for Spring" set, along with White & Spring Rain cardstocks. I stamped the images with Doodlebug "Bubblegum" pigment ink, and colored in the eggs lightly with Heidi Swapp colored pencils. Other product that I used is Imaginisce "For Peep's Sake" paper, Kaiser Craft jewels, and my Cricut Expression to cut out the scalloped circle (Accent Essentials cartridge). Last but not least with the Papertrey product, is this cute Easter card using up some White, Dark Chocolate & Spring Rain cardstock scraps. I stamped the bunnies using Clearsnap Chalk Ink in French Blue, and the sentiment was done using Timber Brown Staz-On, both stamps from the "Tags for Spring" set. This card also uses some 7Gypsies rub-ons, and Darice rhinestones. This is my last Papertrey Ink card for now. But I do have one last card to share, using Sketch This #78 and the Cardalicious #14 challenge. The challenge was to do a friendship card using green and ribbon, and the sketch was fun too! A challenge, but lots of fun! Be sure to check them both out! This card uses Bazzill cardstock, Scenic Route "Sanoma" papers, Crafty Secrets vintage image, Prima flowers, Michael's brand adhesive pearls, and misc. ribbon and button. I hope your weekend has been a good one!! Casey's team made it to the consolation game at the District Tournament, which means they have made it to divisionals next week!! The consolation match was a great game, and they ended up taking 4th place. They came back from a large deficit in points, and almost had it won...until a player on the other team sunk a three pointer that he will probably never be able to do again- it was crazy. That tied it up, and the Panthers just barely lost in overtime. I am so happy for Casey and the boys though! Casey hasn't made it past this tournament in basketball before, so this is a new experience for him! So, we will be traveling to Butte again next week to watch some more basketball.

Today I am just being lazy. Getting some cleaning done, a little card making...need to run to the pharmacy in a little bit to get a prescription filled. That is about it for me!

Have a blessed Sunday,
~Lea
