OWH Sketch & Club Scrap Cutting Formula

Club Scrap created a new cutting formula for us OWHers using Sketch #39.  Instructions are here: New Formula for Sketch 39.  I've been meaning to try one of these formulas out and when I completed this one, I couldn't believe how quickly I put the cards together.  Wow!  And....when I was done, I threw away my scraps!
Here's three of the four cards I made (I put them all in one picture):
I used the Tim Holtz Visual Artistry stamps and embossed each card a bit differently; once with gold, once with white and once with clear powder.  It really gets my creativity going when I'm able to crank out so many cards quickly.  Club Scrap's created other formulas for us and I'm going to give them a try soon.
Now on to today's OWH sketch:
Very cool.  I always love the dimensions because it helps me get my first card right.  I bought this Joe Cool stamp from Hobby Lobby recently and I stamped & embossed him in black, then colored him in with my Inktense pencils. 
The only phrase I could think of was "Stay Cool".  I used stickers to spell that on this first card.  The papers are from my stash.
On the second card, I created an SVG file with the phrase:
If you'd like my "Stay Cool" SVG file, you can upload it from this link: Stay Cool
I can't tell you why I created a beach scene in the middle of winter!  I guess I'm wishing for warmer weather.
Suzume's soaking up the sun here.  One of her paws is swollen so tomorrow we're taking a trip to the vet to see what's wrong.  She probably got into a fight with something outside or got a bee sting, but she's limping on it and taking life slow.  Good thing I'm taking tomorrow off from work!
Hope ya'll have a great New Year's!!!


  1. Very cute!!! I'm loving your little Joe Cool... I am wishing for warmer weather too! :)

  2. Who doesn't love Joe Cool, even if it is only 20 degrees outside? Makes me wish I was lounging in the sun, for sure! Great batch of cards!

  3. Snoopy always makes me smile. Terrific cards!


  4. Erick, Wonderful cards. Love the coloring. I'm keeping my fingers that Suzume's trip to the vet goes well. Happy New Year.

  5. Ha! Love the Snoop dog! :) Great use of stickers and I think the sentiment is just perfect. :)

  6. Love the Snoopy card! Perfect sentiment, too!
