5/12 A Weekend Sketch Challenge


One of my favorite blogs is called Fresh and Fun. Beate is an incredible stamp artist and everything she posts is fresh and fun so her blog is aptly named! Well, once a week Beate posts a Weekend Sketch Challenge. This past weekend, I actually had some time to play and the card below is what I came up with.

I just love the way my card turned out . . . I love the way the vellum looks, it gives the card the division that the sketch was directing me towards, but it still shows off the whole image. I used two stamp sets to make this card. The loving couple image is from the stamp set called Summer by the Sea. It is on SU dormant list at the moment but is still available for ordering. The sentiment is from the set called A Beautiful Thing. I love how this sentiment goes so well with this couple. I think it would work so well for an Anniversary, Valentine or Just Because I Love You card. Tomorrow is my hubby's birthday and I'm tempted to give him this card . . . but I also love the Pun Fun Skunk that says "I stink you're sweet." Or, maybe I'll go the nature route . . . Hmmm. I just don't know - so many choices!!

Supplies I used to make this card:

Stamps: Summer by the Sea, A Beautiful Thing
Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White, Rose Red Designer Prints, Vellum
Ink: Purely Pomegranate
Accessories: Vintage Brads, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Marvy Punches for the ovals, Dimensionals
