Here is the sketch for this weekend’s challenge. This time the prize is a Studio G clear stamp set and a little bit of May Arts ribbon.

To participate in the challenge, make a card with this layout and upload it either to your blog, or to an online gallery.

 If you upload your card on SCS, put WSC18  (NO SPACE INBETWEEN WSC AND 18)in the keyword section. That way we can look at all of them at once!

Post a link to your card to THIS blog entry as a comment. Please add your entry# to it.

I will determine the winner of the clear stamps with on Wednesday at 9:00 a.m.


I tried out the sketch last Tuesday with SCS’s color challenge to see if I would like it. It makes simply and quick cards.

    Entry #62

  56. Thanks for the inspiration, Beate. My card ended up a lot like yours. It’s strange because I really didn’t even pay much attention to your example at the bottom of this post. I just copied the sketch and ran over to my stamp table. Great minds must think alike, I guess!

    Entry #64

    Thanks for the fun sketch Beate!
    Entry #72

  65. Very nice sketch and it worked well for the LSC132 also. I hope it didn’t matter that I had to add an oval for the sentiment but it just didn’t stand out enough when I first stamped it so I put the oval punch over it. Here is my SCS link.

    Hope you enjoyed your weekend.
