Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge 252


Twice in one week!  I know!  A miracle!  Can you tell I'm empty nesting with the kids at camp this week?  Today's card utilizes a sketch challenge from the Paper Craft Crew (PCC252).


I love using sketch challenges for inspiration.  I needed one for this stamp set since every card I looked at on Pinterest had the retired DSP that coordinated with this set, a similar problem that I had with my previous card.  While I love DSP, I really like to explore a stamp set's full potential by making cards without the DSP.

Here are the ingredients for today's card:

Stamps: Cool Treats, Swirly Bird
Ink: Melon Mambo, Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Peekaboo Peach
Paper: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Pink Pirouette, Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Peekaboo Peach
Accessories: Frozen Treats Framelits, Sprinkles Embellishments (retired)

I'm Back!


Hello all!  I've taken a very long hiatus from blogging!  I like to be honest with myself and my readers.  I am not sure how long this will last.  I find I have more time in the summer to blog with my volunteer activities at a minimal.  Once the school year starts, I may go dark again, but we'll take it one day at a time for now!

Today, I'd like to share one of my cards I made for my stamp club tomorrow evening.  We are doing a summer theme for tomorrow's club so I definitely wanted to use the Seaside Shore stamp set.  I was struggling with using this set because all the inspiration our there used our retired DSP from last year along with the color scheme from that paper.  I finally was able to break away from the old color scheme, although not completely.  I threw the new Tranquil Tide (2017-19 In Color) in with Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Night of Navy and used a sketch inspiration from the Mojo Monday blog (#383).  Here are all the ingredients for my card:

Stamps: Seaside Shore
Ink: Night of Navy, Tranquil Tide
Paper: Whisper White, Tranquil Tide, Calypso Coral, Pool Party, Night of Navy, Whole Lot of Lovely DSP
Accessories: Paper Snips
