TGIF#198 and SFO Team Challenge DSP

Hi all and welcome to my blog for TGIF#198 sketch challenge combined with my Stampin' Up! demo team challenge to create 11 cards in the month of February with different themes. The theme for this card is "Use Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Annual Catalog." 
I used the Wood Textures DSP (comes in 6 X 6 sheets) for the background, as well as, the heart shape and sentiment banner. I choose the rooster from the "Home to Roost" stamp set, available now during Sale-A-Bration free with a $50 purchase before tax and shipping, for my focal image.
After stamping with Memento black ink on Shimmery white, I colored the rooster with a damp watercolor brush. Using reinkers of Coastal Cabana, Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove and Berry Burst I was careful not to wet the Memento Black Ink for it doesn't do well with water, unless you have used a clear embossing powder over it. (And I didn't!) Once dry, I fussy cut it out with my Paper Snips.

The Pool Party background was cut out through the Big Shot with a circle from the "Stitched Shapes Framelits. The "Home to Roost" stamp set has a great font with the words "Just a Note" which I stamped repeatedly with Pool Party on the circle for some visual interest.
The "Wishing You Well" sentiment is from the "Wishing You Well" stamp set and fit perfectly in the area as shown in the sketch. I layered the heart DSP with a few Whisper White cardstock hearts to make a sturdier "chipboard" type heart.

I made 2 cards, the other one was slightly different but basically used all the same products,
Here they are side by side:
What do you think? Did I meet the challenges? I love the wood DSP for the background. It is a great jumping off point for a masculine card, too!

Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop February 2019


Welcome to the Training Blog Hop for February 2019! We are all Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from all over the world working with Kylie Bertucci and her husband, Bruno to help us realize our potential.

There is no theme for this hop, just to use current Stampin' Up! products. I created an ink-blended background for another stamp challenge and created this card:
I had a half sheet on Shimmery White paper left which I had used to ink blend all the colors of the Sunday Stamps Challenge #197.
I sprinkled the half sheet with water droplets, pressed them off with a blue shop towels and I saw "stars"! I wanted to enhance that look so I watered down some Frost Shimmer White Paint on an acrylic block and swiped off drops to the half sheet with a paint brush. I made 2 cards from the half sheet.

Next, I used the stamps from the "Little Twinkle" stamp set and using the Stamparatus stamped several layers of each with Memento black ink. The card with the "heart stars" was quickly sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat set for some added dimension.

The final touch was to back Silver Glimmer paper with a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet. I punch out stars with the "Twinkle Builder Punch". One card was layered with Basic Black card stock and both cards were die cut with the largest "Rectangle Stitched Framelit".

Please hop along with us! Here is the line-up.
