Saturday Sketch Challenge 198

Good Evening Friends! WOW!! Did you see Patti's color challenge yesterday? It's AWESOME! Maybe you could combine the two challenges??

We, your stamping 411 Operators, are excited to announce that TODAY IS THE DAY, we will be converting to....

ALL Stampin' Up Only!

This will still be the SAME marketing FREE zone that you have come to know and love, and it is still a safe place for all our customers to play. We ask that when you play along and link to our challenges that you use Stampin' Up products only. More details may be found at our post here.

Let's move right along to this week's Stampin' Up! sketch challenge! We have a ver simple sketch for you this week (the way I personally like em') and such fun cards from the operators!

Here are some potential measurements for you to try:

Base: 11 x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 5 1/2"
Layer 2: 4 1/4" x 3 1/4", then add some decorative border on the right?
Layer 3: 3 x 3 1/4" Maybe a little ribbon or something to finish it off... A card does NOT have to take 2 hours or lots of supplies to make! Try keeping it clean and simple! :D

Selene Kempton

Connie Babbert

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 A Great Week!
The Operators


  1. Love your "stuff"! Keep it coming. It helps so very much and inspires us to think out of the box.

  2. I like the SUO focus! Personally, I am an equal opportunity stamp buyer and user - I have it all. But the centerpiece of my stamp collection are my SU stamps. papers, ribbons, etc, are almost entirely SU. So I will thoroughly enjoy viewing the SUO creations on this challenge.

  3. Thanks to the team for keeping your changes and new focus so upbeat and fun! I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with (I don't have a blog or I'd love to play along every so often...)

  4. A Friendly FYI: About using only SU products, you need to change the widget info that is right below the blog masthead cuz it still says you can use whatever products you want. xoxo

  5. Another great sketch! Need to get more SU supplies before I can play along! Thanks for all the inspiration!

  6. Great sketch this week! Love all the inspiration!!

  7. My first time to play!Enjoyed everyone's work - all an inspiration to me!
