Good Morning! It is time for another PPA Challenge and today it is a sketch challenge from the fabulous PAL….Nicole Watt! She has drummed up a fun sketch for us today! Please check out what the design team came up with and then play along!
I know that there are many of you that enjoy the Monday fun we personally have…so why not try this! You have nothing to lose at all! If you need help with uploading your masterpiece, please email me, I will be happy to help!
Before we get going on today’s post….I ask you honestly….do you know what stamp set these cute little chicks came from? Don’t peek below at the scrolling list of fun ingredients….can you guess???
I was trying to find a small shape for the challenge and something that would come together in a jif….and BINGO – it popped right off the shelf into my arms….NUTS ABOUT YOU! It is from the Big Catalog and I bet that you never thought about using it for Easter!
The size of the card is a 4″ X 6″ card and then I matted it 1/4″ smaller and then ran it through Mr. Big Shot (my main stampin’ man) with the Spring Flowers Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (love it) and the rest is very straight forward!
I am super bummed that my pictures are not the best (darn, this is one thing that I struggle with) but trust me…in person it is super cute! I stamped the “chicks” in Crushed Curry and then matted them with the scallop punch in Wisteria Wonder!
One thing (well 2 things) that I love are the Expression Thinlits Dies (LOVE the sentiments) and also the Vanilla Coaster Board…I think adding the sentiment on the coaster board it the PERFECT “peanut butter and jelly” – I use the “green glue” and it works like a champ every time!
This was so easy to pull together, I know that it is not a WOW card, but it sure is a quick and cute card. I felt like the upper left corner needed a balance so a quick simple bow with the cotton ribbon did the trick!
Please do not be afraid to try “odd size cards” like this – they are super easy to make a custom envelope with the Punch Board…this dream gadget if just under $20.00 and it is a blessing (so are the DSP paper stacks)
Please have fun playing with this sketch and you know that you can email me and I will be happy to help you!
Tomorrow I have a FUN post for you….I am going to recap some of the Blog Candy answers and also….it’s Spring so we need to do some SPRING SPRUCING UP!
The goodies that I used are scrollling below….SAB is coming to an end……and you all are the best!
