FM#43... Try Something New!

It's Friday Yay!!! I'm ready for Saturday so I can sleep in, how about you? It's been a long busy week... I didn't get much stamping done as you may have noticed by my lack of posting. I'm trying to get ahead where I can crank out a few projects ahead of time. I did get some cleaning and organizing done so I have a nice pile of goodies for a giveaway soon.

Now it's Friday and time for a new Friday Mashup Challenge! This week Kim is our hostess and she created this great Sketch and we're Mashing it up with Something NEW from you stash...

I have received 2 Stampin' Orders in the last few weeks and I have a pile of new goodies waiting to be used! When I saw the new Occasion Mini Catalog, the first Stamp set I had to have was the one called "Gnome Sweet Gnome".

How stink'in cute is this stamp set? There is another set as well that just has Gnome sayings to go with it! So I broke this set out to use for my project today.. along with the new DSP you can get for free during Sale-a-Bration called Everyday Enchantment.

I started with a Soft Suede card base and then I added some pieces of the DSP. For my Oval I used a die cut that embossed the edges as well on a piece of Very Vanilla. Using the Stamp-a-ma-jig and some Black ink I stamped all my images into a little scene. Using the same colors that are in the Paper... I colored the images in with an Aqua Painter & Inks.

It's looking a bit like Forks, WA outside today so there is no sunlight to get a good But you might be able to see the tiny bit of Pool Party I sponged around my image and then on the lantern I colored it with So Saffron and added some Dazzling Diamonds too it for sparkle. The sentiment is just stamped onto Very Vanilla and then punched out with the Word Window punch. And a piece of Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon on the top.. I LOVE this ribbon!

Head over to the Friday Mashup Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week.. Lots of great uses of this fun Sketch! We hope you'll play along.. The linky will close on Thursday Feb. 2nd at 12am EST.

My desk was looking a bit cluttered last night when I finished my card I think it may be time to find the wood top again.

Have a great weekend.. I hope to get some Stamping done!
