CPS 5th Anniversary Day 12 with Lisa Silver and Clearsnap

Welcome to Day 12 of the CPS 5th Anniversary Celebration.  


Welcome! My name is Lisa Silver and I'm hosting today's sketch challenge.

I have been stamping for about 7 years, 5 of those years on various design teams.  I was honored to join CPS in December of 2009.  Perhaps it's a bit of OCD, but I love having a project plan... I love having the road map, which sometimes I follow closely or interpret for a little side-trip!  I also love the camaraderie of this amazing team.  Have you seen the line up of designers I get to work with each week?

Besides CPS, I design for Outlines Rubber Stamps and DiscountCardstock.com.  When I'm not crafting, I am a wife and mother (of two wonderful children).  I work in the chemical industry by day and love crafting for it's therapeutic properties.  I also love to read, spend time with my family and travel.

You can can find me at my blog Silver Stamping for more projects and inspiration.

An all-time favorite CPS project was a more recent project for CPS Sketch # 250.

I just loved this project because of the mash-up of patterned paper, stamping and embellishments.  Creating just gives me joy.

For today’s sketch I chose CPS #118.

Beautiful colors on this card.

My version was a bit of a stretch, but I think it still fits. And definitely fit my purpose.

Thanks for the "push" in the right direction.

Betty Neville said...

Your card is gorgeous! Thank you for the sketch!

CraftyViolet said...

I put all my cards on seperate posts but they are not letting me choose which one it matches. Oh Oh!
This is not good.

Vickie O'Dell said...

I was glad to see the sample card for this sketch was altered to be a vertical design. That gave me "permission" to make mine a square like the paper I wanted to use. Thanks for this easy sketch!
