Sketch Challenge #197
Happy Sunday to you! Sandy here, still filling in for Marlene til her computer situation gets itself sorted out 🙂 I’m in California, so I’m reallllly hoping the inlinkz posts correctly; it’s been a pain in the patootie lately so I hope this is a cooperative week. If not, be patient and one of our blog team will be able to jump in and help 🙂
- First, let’s do our giveaway from last week’s sponsored sketch! The winner is KARA! Go check out her beautiful card HERE. Kara, I’ll get with you after I get back and hook you up for your prize! 🙂
- Second…a new partner has arisen to help out! Rubberstamps.com now carries the self-inking OWH stamps…and one is customizable with YOUR NAME! Yeah! We know lots of you have wanted that. And now it’s yours! The self-inking stamps are particularly good for those having cardmaking parties who need to stamp a lot of cards…or for those who just don’t want to have our little freebie stamp getting lost.
But wait, there’s more!
How about a donation made for each purchase!?! They’re going to be donating $1 from each stamp purchased….so you can feel even better about treating yourself to one!
- And now, today’s sketch!
This design is a pretty common layout – but it’s here with all kinds of delicious numbers for you to layer it up! We get LOTS of cards with this basic idea – two papers and an image or sentiment. But oh man. Add layers and it becomes amazing!
Check out the card it was based on! It’s by our own Dixie, and her original post is HERE. It was a birthday card for a friend, not an OWH one, but the team saw it and wanted some measurements! Note that Dixie’s card is a little different than the sketch – the center layer is 1/8″ larger (I think? I’m math challenged!) than the measurements above, which makes that a thick layer – and thins out the layer beyond it. It’s a great device to change up the emphasis from the usual “even” layer widths, don’t you think?
So now it’s your turn to go have some fun…are you going to stick with the layers as measured on the sketch? Or change it up a little?
