Sweet 'n Sassy May Digi Blog Hop


Welcome!  Happy Friday to you!!  It is time for another Sweet `n Sassy Digi Challenge, but today we are very excited to add something more!  Sweet 'n Sassy's DIGI RELEASE BLOG HOP!  WOO HOO!  You should have arrived here from Melinda's blog, if not, you will want to go back to the Sweet 'n Sassy's Digi Challenge Blog.  While you're hopping, be sure to leave some love on each of the blog hop posts…One of the ladies below is a mystery blogger and she will be picking a random winner from the comments on her blog post!!  The winning prize will be the whole May Digi Release!! (The winner will be announced at SNS Digi Challenge Blog on Friday, May 25th.)  This week's challenge was a Recipe: One ribbon, Two gems and Three different colors (plus neutrals) -for some reason, the gems were the most difficult ingredient, I kept wanting to add more...but I digress...  Just a few things to keep in mind as you play....

  • Please remember to use digital images ONLY for the challenge.
  • You don't have to use SNS digi images to play along but we sure do love when you do!
  • Please share a link to your creation using the Linky feature on the challenge blog post (if the link feature is down, please add a link with your comment), and
  • When uploading to online galleries, please use keyword SNSDC54.

     Now for my cards!  Those of you who know me know I can be a little indecisive, and I had so many ideas for these new images I could not decide on just one, so I have a bunch of cards for your viewing pleasure today!  The first two are created with the new Baseball Rhubarb.  This first one uses Deconstructed Sketch 50:
I paired Rhubarb up with a sentiment from SNSS' 'Ticket Sentiments' set and since I didn't have a die cut of a bat, I sort of sketched one freehand and then traced it three more times to complete the layout.  This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:
     But I could not stop here once I saw this week's Sweet Stop Sketch 158:
You might see circles, but I saw baseballs and created this card:
For the baseballs I just punched a bunch of circles in different sizes from white cardstock and used the negative part as a stencil for the red curves before I through it away and then drew in the red stitches.  This card also fulfills the requirements for the following additional challenges:
   I also have a few cards for you using Baby Block Cocoa Mouse (I just love Cocoa!).  The first, for a baby girl, played on a stacking baby blocks layout:
(had no idea where to put the gems in this one, LOL!  Had originally thought to put one on either side of the 'BABY' sentiment, but there was not enough room).  Can you tell the blocks on the bottom are bigger?  One of the great things about working with digis - you can make them as big or as small as you want, to fit any size!   This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:
My second card, for a baby boy, has more of a CAS feel to it, something I have wanted to try with a digi image:
The letters are die cuts cut from Barely Banana, Bashful Blue, and Mint Melody (talk about a blast from the past right?) cardstock and placed next to the 'B" on Cocoa's block, serving as the sentiment and the main image as well.  This card also fulfills the requirements of the following additional challenges:
     So, which one of my cards is your favorite?  ;)  I should mention, in case you are thinking about picking any SNSS digis up in the near future - now is the time!  Korin is having a BIG SALE!!  For every 2 digis you purchase on a single order you get a third one FREE!  And for every 2 clear stamp sets you purchase on a single order you get a third set FREE!  Is this an awesome sale or what?!!

Now, Here is the blog hop list for to see May Digi Release-Recipe Challenge creations...

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a Happy Friday and a Wonderful Weekend!

Melinda Gleissner said...

Wow Meredith, these are terrific! The last card is my absolute favorite! Love the colors and how you used the B on the block to spell out baby. You are amazing but you know you're making the rest of us look bad;-)

Melinda Gleissner said...

sorry, I forgot to ask. May I pin these? They really are great!

Patricia said...

Using baseballs for the circle elements of the Sweet Stop sketch is just TOO clever! All of your cards are darling - thank you for sharing all of them with us!

Love them all but the baby spelled out is so sweet - I'll go with that as my fave.

Great job on all!!

Pia S said...

WOW - they're all great cards! I can't pick a favorite, so I'll pick two :)
I think the card with all the baseballs is a great version of the sketch. Fun and colorful card with a great design! I am also very fond of CAS cards, so the baby card in blues I think looks so fantastic - clean, soft and sweet!

Mary Kruschke said...

They are all so adorable it's hard to pick a favorite. I saw the sketch challenge with the circles earlier last week but you did an awesome job with the multiple baseballs. You're so creative in a pinch!
