Saturday Sketch Challenge #220

Hello everyone and welcome to a new Saturday Sketch Challenge at Stamping 411! We've got a fun sketch and some fabulous inspiration pieces for you this week! This sketch gives you lots of possibilities for using DSP, embellishments, stamped images and more -- it's a stamper's dream!

As always, we invite you to play along after you've created your masterpiece! To get you started, here are some possible measurements you could use:
  1. Layer One -- Cardstock cut at 5.5 x 8.5", scored and folded to make your Card Base
  2. Layer Two -- DSP cut at 4 x 5.25". Trim again at 2", reverse the pattern and use both sides of the DSP. Separate with a ribbon or strip of cardstock or paper.
  3. Layer Three -- Cardstock cut at 2 x 2.5"
  4. Layer Four -- Cardstock cut at 1.75 x 2.25" -- embellish with a circular or other shape -- add brads, buttons or other embellishment to the corners.
Okay -- are you ready to be inspired? Just look at what the Stamping 411 Operators created this week ...

Are you ready to play along? We sure hope so! Never played with us before?? Well, it's easy! Sky's the limit!
  1. Make a card using your Stampin' Up Supplies!
  2. Post it online somewhere to your blog or other online forum
  3. Post a link to the free linky tool below (please point the link to your post and NOT just your blog).
  4. Have some fun and leave comments for each other (and for the operators if you like their work). ~ Everyone loves comments!
  5. Please note, we reserve the right to remove links with non-Stampin' Up! product, "sales pitches", links to online stores, or requests to join your team. We're here to have fun, learn from one another and share.
We hope you join us this week and play along with this sketch! But don't delay our links will close at 8AM on Thursday morning Eastern Standard Time.

Have fun and Happy Stamping! Blessings, Gretchen


  1. Hi ladies! I created a card but don't see a linky on the site for the challenge! The inspiration from the DT was fabby, as always this week! :)

  2. Not sure what's up, but I went thru the process three times to add my card for this weeks challenge, and it doesn't show up. ??? (I hope it doesn't end up being on there 3 times!

  3. Gretchen and the other operators, thanks so much for this great sketch. It is a wonderful way to use smaller images. I know I'll use this sketch again and again. Glad I had time to play this week!

  4. Hi Ladies,
    I just noticed that my card was missing from the linky...I added it on the weekend. So I added it again. I was wondering if I was deleted...I looked at the challenge rules and followed them closely, I think? Please let me know if you deleted me because of my post.

  5. Hi Ladies,

    I love this week's sketch! I knew that I would like the final result... (and I will use it again!!!!) Thank you a lot for this great challenge!

  6. I forgot to link my card! LOL
