Bloggers Challenge - Sketch Challenge


Happy Friday! This week I gave the players the following sketch to use for this weeks challenge. It's a pretty simple sketch, one that I think will lend itself nicely to many images.




Here's my take on this weeks challenge, as you can see I left off the brads on my strip and opted for some "faux stitching", omitted the sentiment and added Faux Brads. The beautiful looking pumpkin is from Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Pumpkins. I stamped mine in the following Memento Inks on White card stock: #1 Cantaloupe, #2 Cantaloupe, #3 Tangelo, #4 Tangelo, #5 Potters Clay. For the face: #2 Black, #1 Potters Clay. The Stem: #2 Rich Cocoa, #1 Pear Tart. The Leaves: #1 Pear Tart, #2 Bamboo Leaves, #3 Cottage Ivy. Then cut with Circle Spellbinder Dies and layered on a Black Scallop panel.


Don't forget you can save 10% on all your Kitchen Sink Stamps Purchases use code LISA10KSS, when you check out.

As I mentioned the other day - I have a few sneak peeks from Kitchen Sink Stamps October Releases.....Be sure to stop back on Monday to see the finished cards.




In this peek you'll see images from the new Multi Step Harvest, along with last months Multi Step Pumpkin and the 3 Step Autumn Squirrel. Gotta love those coordinating sets!










This peek features the Multi Step Trees - just wait until you see the full trees!

There's one more set - I'm hoping to have a peek of the Leaves later this weekend!
