Welcome to this week’s Amusing Challenges – we’re featuring the sketch below – it’s another one that is perfect for scraps!! Throughout the month I’ll have different sorts of challenges…”use it”, themes, sketch, etc. I will have a Weekly Winner and at the end of the month, those 4-5 winners will go into a prize drawing. This month’s prize is a package of small a•muse studio doilies from me!
Juliet is a former air traffic controller and instantly loved the a•muse studio Come Fly With Me stamp set. I love it too – and I really like the variety in her banner pieces; both color and size-wise. Her blue sponging on the top really finishes it off nicely.
Cyndi had another vision for the sketch…and that’s what I think is so fun about sketches…they give you a starting point for card ideas and you can just go from there! She used the soon-to-be-retired set, On the Wing, and the harlequin embossing plate – both from a•muse studio. PS. That blueberry petite polka dot paper is also retiring – it’s all marked down on sale for 30% off thru Feb!
I had a lot of fun creating this card with scraps I had left over – what a satisfying feeling! Here I used Enjoy the Ride, the banner die from Cupcake Companion set and some of the new blush baker’s twine from the a•muse studio Valentine catalog. The venetian, gingham and several of the petite polka dot papers from a•muse studio are retiring on Feb 28…it’s a great time to stock up while they are on sale. The best part of these papers is that they are the perfect size for card stamping.
