SIP Challenge #50 – Sketch

Good morning! I hope you all had a safe and happy holiday weekend. It’s Tuesday and that means we have a new challenge for you over at Stamp Ink Paper.  This week we have a fun sketch for you

SIP Challenge #50 -Sketch

I decided to use this sketch for the card I made for my boyfriend thanking him for his service he spent in the Army.  I would also like to thank all service men and women who are currently serving and those who have served in the past.  Here is the card I made

For Your Country

I started with a Mossy Meadow card base.  The next layer I created by using a panel of Whisper White stamped with the World Map background stamp and then distressed with Tim Holtz Vintgae Photo ink.  Next I die cut a stitched circle in Whisper White and sponged starting at the bottom with Mossy Meadow, YoYo Yellow and then Pumpkin Pie and then stamped the image from For Your Country in Stazon Black ink.  To finish I stamped the tags from the same set in Stazon Black onto Kraft Cardstock and fussy cut the image and then stamped the sentiment on white and cut the words separately and placed in the tags and tucked this piece behind the main image.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my card this week.

Until next time

Happy Crafting 🙂



The Sky Is The Limit

Hello and welcome to my blog! Before heading out to stock up for the upcoming storm this weekend I wanted to share my card I made for this weeks Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch challenge

And this is what I created with the sketch

I started with a Whisper White card base. Next I die cut a stitched circle and used a cloud die as a stencil and sponged blue randomly on the circle and then adhered to the card base. I then took a piece of Baked Brown Sugar and cut a piece according to the sketch and stamped the World Map background stamp on it and distressed the edges and then added it to the card base. Next I stamped and fussy cut the plane from the new SAB set Sky Is The Limit and popped it on centered between the map and clouds. To finish I stamped the sentiment from the same SAB set and added some homemade enamel dots.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed my card.
