It’s time to play again.
The inspiration for this sketch came from my Party Time Monkey card last weekend. I love simple sketches. So for the next few weeks we will take it easy! Here is the sketch for this weekend:
This will be the last time I raffle away something for using my sketch until after my trip to Germany.
I am getting excited. The kids and I are going back to Germany for two weeks. We are leaving on the 11th of June and come back on the 25th. I haven’t been home in 4 years!
I will still post sketches the Fridays I am gone, but I won’t do raffles until I am back home. I am a scatterbrain and would just forget to send out the stuff! LOL
I preordered from the Fall Preview catalog this morning. I am thrilled to finally get some new Stampin’ Up! rubber!!! I can’t wait!!! For those of you curious on what I preordered….don’t judge me, but I got it all. The whole Shebang! I am “SU new rubber deprived”.
The winner of this weekends raffle will get some Zoofari images! My order will come in on Tuesday and I will get the images out on Wednesday.
I know a lot of people really dislike this set. I think it will make for some funky cards and can’t wait to play with it. I am so excited to finally get some new Stampin’ Up! rubber!!! I can’t wait!!! It has been wayyyyy to long.
To participate in this weeks challenge, make a card with this sketch and upload it on your blog or on Splitcoaststampers. Then add a link to your card in the comment section! I will draw a winner on Tuesday morning. I let this weeks sketch run a day longer because I won’t get the Zoofari set until then.
I made this card for the sketch challenge this morning. I had bought All Mixed Up because of the cute images it comes with and all the fun posibilities. I am ashamed to say that this is the first time I used it. I still really like it though. I think it’s a fun set to let your kids play with too. Bummer SU didn’t give it another year and it’s now on the retiring list.
My card base is a 5 1/4″ x 10 1/2″ Cool Caribbean cardstock.
No Chocolate Chip on this card! I was trying to work it in though. LOL It’s simply my favorite neutral color to enhance cards.
On top of the Caribbean is a 5″ square of Basic Black followed by a 4 3/4″ square Certainly Celery POP designer paper. The scallop border on the bottom of the paper was made with the corner rounder.
I layered a 2 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ piece of Apricot Appeal Designer paper over the Celery paper and “stitched” all the edges with my All in A Row stamp. It will now permanently stay on my table! Why always put it away just to get it out for the next card?
The Miss you from Take Three is stamped in black on Whisper white and slipped under my Apricot POP paper. The three black circles are punched out with the 1/2″ circle punch. I added turquoise eyelets from the Favorite collection in the center of the circles. Well…kinda in the center. I was stamping early and didn’t want to wake my kids with eyelet banging. So I punched holes and set the eyelets with my hole punches.
For the main image I stamped the midrift and head of the duck on whisper white cardstock. I colored the image with Going Gray, Apricot Appeal, Taken with Teal and Cool Caribbean ink pads and aqua painter. The top part is sponged really soft with bashful blue. I cut a black mat with my Coluzzle and layered that on a Cool Caribbean punchout from my Giga Scallop Circle punch from Uchida. It still needed some black so I outlined the scallops with my Micron pen. I paper pierced a hole in each scallop and added a dot with the pen.
