Saturday Sketch Challenge ~ 105

All of the operators are VERY excited about this weeks sketch challenge! That's because we're giving an extra special prize to one lucky participant this week!

This isn't your typical blog candy contest... Oh no, this week, one person who plays along with the operators will receive ALL of our samples this week in their mailbox!!! How fun is that?

Get excited kids! This one is one you'll want to play along with!

This is a super simple sketch and I think you'll find it really easy to make your own creation.

Here are some measurements for you to try out:

Base Layer: Cut a piece of cardstock in half at 5 1/2" and score at 4 1/4" to make your card base (or fold your base layer in half with your bone folder)

Second Layer: Cut a piece of cardstock at 4" and then at 5 1/4" Note: you can get 4 pieces from one computer sized piece of cardstock, or 6 pieces from a 12 x 12".

Layer 3: Cut a piece of cardstock first at 4" then at 2"
Layer 4: Cut a piece of cardstock at 4", then at 1 3/4"
(on both of these layers, if you are cutting from a 12x12" paper, you'll get 36 pieces from one sheet!)

Note: if you are going to scallop one side of layer 3 add 1/4", if you are going to scallop both sides, add 1/2". This will make room for what you cut off.

Next add your focal point. In this sketch we are showing a circle, but feel free to change it up and use any shape you like or any shape that fits your stamp! Take liberties and chances and above all please have fun!

Here are some idea's from the operators! Thanks for visiting and we hope you have time to play along. Wouldn't it be fun to find each one of these beauties in YOUR mailbox?


  1. Wow! I'm first?? Great sketch. Keep up the good work!

  2. Using the scallop punch I didn't know about how much to add to the strip to make it the right width. I have been using this punch for a while and wasted a lot of paper with hit and miss. Thanks for the new info.
