Hello friends! You know sometimes you get stuck in a rut......for me it's a creative rut lately. I have been uninspired lately and decided to change that by getting some different stamp images that require a different style. Plus I checked out the Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers and found a fantastic sketch! I have been purchasing the Simon Says Stamp Monthly kit for a few months. Last months hasn't been touched yet and I got this month's just a few days ago. So I made myself sit down at my crafty table to create something fun with kit I just got and the sketch challenge. Be sure to leave a comment answering my question below! You could receive this fun card!
Here is what came in the kit.....
There are 3 small pots of Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Aquamarine, Pure Platinum and Peony Pink. Plus a small egg-shaped stencil, palette knife, mini mister, sponge, cardstock and some Doodlebug 6x6 patterned paper. Plus the cutest stamp set! You can check out the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge for this week HERE.
Here is what I created.....
Don't you just love that little chickie? Plus the sentiment is awesome! I stamped and masked the eggs then colored them with Spectrum Noir Illustrator Pens. I stamped the chickie on the card and then stamp him again on a scrap piece of cardstock. I fussy cut out the top of the chickie after I colored him and popped him up on some 3d foam squares. I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops (not included in the kit) at the top and bottom corners plus I used a banner punch on the sentiment panels. I also punched out the smaller sentiment using a circle punch. I love how this turned out and can't wait to find someone to send this cute card!
What do you do when you get in a creative rut? If I get 20 comments, I will pick a comment and send that person this cute card! So please tell me what you do when you are in a creative rut. I would love to find out!

Here is my project for today's hop.....
For my project today, I created a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4" card using the Santa's Sleigh die from Tonic Studios USA. I love the embossed detail on this die. I also added some flowers I die cut from the Radiant Roselily die set and some holly leaves from the 138E Mini Wreath Decorations Die. The brushed gold cardstock was from my stash and I am surprised it didn't have dust on it! LOL I used the an A4 Embossing Folder - Martha for the gold layer. In the center of the flowers, I added some Golden Crystal Glimmer Paste. Here is a closer look.....
I really love how this card turned out. It's simple yet elegant and that is just what I love to create. So now it's time to leave your comment here on my blog. I have included a list of all the blog hop participants at the bottom of this post.

Here is my project for today's blog hop!
Coloring can be alot of fun but I am sure you wonder what you should do with the pages you colored, right? Well, I decided that I loved the flower from the Natural Beauty Foil Accent Colorista Pad, so I colored the flower and then fussy cut out the flower. Here is the page I colored the flower and the Colorista Markers I used.
I still have the rest of the page to color and use in my card making. As you can see, the best part about the foil accent pages are that not everything is foil....there are some plain ink parts. That just makes the foil sections look so neat! Here is a close-up of my card.............
