Queen Kat Sketch Challenge

Happy Friday Everyone!

Hope you're all having a good week. Now with Friday here, that means a new STAMP SOMETHING challenge! This week we have a sketch challenge and some yummy blog candy generously donated by Queen Kat Stamps! There are also loads of fabulous samples using this sketch. Not only do we have the STAMP SOMETHING design team samples, but we have a guest designer this week as well has some samples from the Queen Kat design team! Head over to STAMP SOMETHING and check them out.

Here is the sketch....

Please design your card or project based on this sketch. Then post a comment on STAMP SOMETHING by 7pm EST next Thursday, November 20th for your chance to win the fantastic blog candy goodies.


This is the card I made with this sketch. It was tough at first, but I'm happy with the way it turned out. I decided to get two for the price of one with this challenge and make a card for a child's birthday party we have next weekend.

Here are the details for this one: the cardstock colors are Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, and White. I also used Washington Apple DSP. The stamps are Zoofari and Hugs and Wishes, both Stampin' Up! sets. I colored the images with reinkers and an aqaupainter, cut them out and mounted them to the squares. The accents are brads, photo corner punches, circle punches, paper piercing, buttons, and hemp twine.

Thanks for coming by today, have a great weekend. Hope you'll find some time to sketch something with us this week! Happy Stamping!! :)
