Stay Tuned For An Important Message–SSSC #259


Hi, everyone! The Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge DOES have an important message today! We are so excited to be moving to our very own blog on Blogger!! You won’t find the challenges on Karen’s site any longer so bookmark or pin or follow us at the new site:

How cool is that???!!! And to celebrate the move, today’s sketch is a free for all! Use any past sketch that you want for you card and link it up on the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge blog. You can find all of the past sketches HERE.

And not only do we have a new home, we have two new team members! Help us welcome the incredible Sankari Wegman and Jill Dewey Hawkins to the Sweet Sunday Sketchers!

Now that all the announcements have been made, let’s get to my card :) I’m using sketch #218, flipped.

I started with a Grout Gray card stock base. Next up is a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock dry embossed with Zebra Stencil and popped up on foam. My two flag elements were cut with Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics from handmade patterned paper. The top one was created by stamping Paw Print Background on Berrylicious card stock with Black Licorice dye ink, the bottom one by stamping Plaid Builder Background on Sweet Tooth card stock with Black Licorice dye ink, Safety Orange dye ink, and Berrylicious dye ink. Next up is my wonky panel, stamped on Sweet tooth card stock with Grid Background and Black Licorice dye ink. I cut the body of my LLD Television Die-namics from Safety Orange card stock stamped with Wood Plank Background and Kraft dye ink, added a Black Licorice card stock base and antennae base, and the frame and antennae were cut from silver metallic card stock. The BB I Knead You image was stamped on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb paper with Black Licorice hybrid ink and colored the Copic markers. The sentiment, from LLD Stay Tuned, was stamped with Black Licorice dye ink and the whole thing popped up on foam mounting tape. I finished off with some enamel dots.

On the INSIDE, I stamped a sentiment and kitty from PI Feline Better.


And that’s it from me today! Hope to see you over at the new Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge blog, playing along! Thanks for stopping by—see you soon, and remember, it’s all about the art!
