Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Hello... Jeanette here, from the design team. I'm glad you've stopped by the blog today!

Did you see? Have you heard? There are some changes happening with SumMore Fun Challenges.  For instance, the current one is a Sketch challenge... you can find the details HERE

How fun! You can use it upright, or you can turn it on its side. Just use the sketch however it fits your creativity.

I guess you can see that I turned the sketch for my card.

I had some Dirt DP and some Baseball DP so of course I had to use one of my favorite Victorine Originals stamp sets for my card - the Baseball set that you can find HERE. Seriously, I really REALLY like this stamp set!!!

Just look at the detail on that baseball glove stamp:

And the ball in the baseball glove is a brad. It fits perfectly!

The music score (of Take Me Out to the Ballgame) 
is also part of the stamp set.

You still have time to participate in the Sketch Challenge. I'll be watching to see what you make.

You all have made our stamps come alive.

Without further ado, these are all the lovely people who are joining us in the blog hop!

Sabrina's creative blog is this blog (when she's not busy doing owner stuff), so here are additional cards she created for this new release.

Veteran card photo-takers will relate to the agony of photographing shiny or holographic cards. The right angle which shows off the bling in one place make another part of the card look dull. Here's the best photo I could take!

The paper is all from my stash. I love shopping there. (I made this card before I created the digital papers. I would have used the blue snowflakes page with this card if I were to make this again now.)
The ornament was stamped with Black Soot Distress Oxide then embossed with a blue/green/gold glitter embossing powder. Then the string was also stamped with Black Soot Distress Oxide and embossed with gold glitter. I used Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide to stamp snowflakes randomly. The sentiment was stamped with Blue Jean Distress Oxide.I used the Gold Kirarina Wink marker to shadow the letters and add the gold line under the sentiment.
As a finishing touch, I used a silver gel pen to color the outer dots on the snowflakes and added a drop of Holographic Pearl Pen to the middle.
