It’s time for the Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop with my favourite – a sketch challenge for this month.. By having a sketch, it takes away you having to work out a design style. You can then have fun picking out all your paper and embellishments to suite the sketch. For this blog hop, a few changes could be made while the basic layout remained the same.

For my card, I wanted to use some of our retiring products. Retiring products are available while stocks last. You can find available products here.

I’ve chosen the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More cards which offer options for scrapbookers as well as cardmakers.

Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack

I flipped the sketch so it was vertical and added my sentiment to the label.

Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop, April 2021, Sketch Challenge

To start off with, I embossed a panel of Just Jade Cardstock with the Subtle 3D Embosssing Folder which is retiring. This is going to stay in my stash as I love the simple texture of it.

The Under my Umbrella stamp set offers cute images and these galoshes have got to be my favourite in the set. I stamped 2 pairs on True Love Designer Series Paper and coloured them with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

Then I heat embossed the images with Clear Embossing Powder 3 times. I suggest heat embossing before fussy cutting as this gives you a larger piece of paper to hold onto when using the Heat Tool. The second shoe was layered for dimension.

The label was punched out 3 times – Memories & More card, Just Jade and Bumblebee Cardstock – and layered by cutting in half and attaching to the back.
