Double Sketches For You Today

Hi Stampers! I love a sketch challenge-hope you do too! The first one is posted over on splitcoaststampers, sc220. Head on over if you want to participate. If you'd rather just use my sample for an inspiration, the supplies are listed below.

The image is a sneak peek!!! It will be available in April, see bottom of post.

Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies you need to make this card:

stamps: scene in a garden (available April 1)

cardstock: so saffron, whisper white, kraft

designer series paper: delicate dots (free during SAB)

ink: black staz-on, Stampin' Up! markers

accessories: 1/4" blue grosgrain ribbon, 5/8" twill certainly celery ribbon (free during SAB), mini-library clip

tools: aqua painters


The second design I have for today uses the Wednesday sketch from Diva Coffee Break Designs. This is the second purse I created this month. Hmm....wonder if my brain is telling me it's time for some retail therapy?!

Stampin' Up! supplies to make this card:

stamps: polka-dot punches (free during SAB)

cardstock: so saffron, kraft, bashful blue

designer series paper: delicate dots (free during SAB)

ink: versa-mark, craft white

accessories: gold brad

tools: crop-a-dile

I hope one of the cards inspires you to get stampin'! My order came a couple days ago with several sneak peek sets!!! So fun--but I haven't had time to play until today. If you need some of these supplies, you can email me at or order 24/7 by clicking on the link in the upper right.

Thanks for stopping in, Tasha

Want to see what's coming in April? I'll be showing off some creations with the sneak peeks in the next few weeks!

Looks like someone likes gardening in the first, Tasha. cute stamp, and backed up with some "cool" colors; the pocket book idea, neatly put together, another little surprise for my lady friends, if included in COTM. And they love me enough already! Lol.
Cool cardin',

I was just telling Heather I had to play in this challenge! And I am in love with the purse cards! they are so adorable!! You picked fantastic papers and I love the gold brads you used for the clasp!

These turned out terrific! I love what you did with the sketch challenge. The coloring on your card is just beautiful! That looks like a really fun set.

Both cards are gorgeous! I really love the card you created for the SCS sketch!!! I was debating on whether to purchase that stamp set or not...I think I might :O)

Hope you're having a great weekend.
