New Challenge @ Sunday Stamps #SSC330

Today begins a new challenge at...

Sunday Stamps // #SSC330 ...A sketch challenge!!  This is a great sketch for layering up some of that designer paper stash that you have been hoarding.  That is what I did!!  I love this boho paisley print and it's color combination is such a fun one.  For a bit of added texture I paired the paper up with a paisley embossing folder.

How will you use this sketch??  How will you "raise the flags"??We can't wait to see!!  Hop on over to our blog and check out the great inspiration from the rest of the design team...I am sure you will be inspired!!

An additional challenge also inspired today's card...

Retro Rubber Challenges // #rrcb225 ...A "retro" challenge with a tic-tac-toe game board.  By retro they mean that they want us to use a stamp that is over a year old.  I used a Rose Wonder sentiment that  retired from Stampin Up in 2018.  My winning three in a row on the game board: patterned papers (retired DSP from Stampin Up...which makes it retro too), embossing (I used both dry embossing and heat embossing), gems (I used mustard colored rhinestone but they kinda blend in more than I like...there are 5 of them...can you find them??).

The card was chosen by the Retro Rubber design team as a "top pick"!!  What an honor to have this shout out on my card!!  Congrats to the other winners as well!!  You can check them out here!!

Card #2 was inspired by 2 challenges...

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge // #AHSC566 ...A sketch challenge.  Another great sketch for using up designer papers from my stash.  This sketch was perfect starting point for my coffee & friends card.

INKspirational Challenges // #IC310 ...A "mood board" challenge.  Macaroons need a cup of coffee don't they?!?  The perfect blend just like coffee & friends!!  To me the mood board had a vintage feel to it so I used some designer papers that had a vintage feel as well.  The color combo was also an inspiration to me.
