I made this card for the sketch challenge this week on SCS. I had Hot Betty for a bit and haven’t used her . The sketch this week was perfect for her.

I stamped Betty on a 1 7/8″ x 3 3/8″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. She was colored with Copic Markers (R24, R29, E50, E51, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9, BG10) and stitched on a slightly bigger piece of Basic Black cardstock. The layers were adhered to a piece of Basic Grey cardstock that had been cut with Long Rectangle Nestabilities. White dots were added to the skirt with an Inkessential White Opaque Pen to create more interest.


The cardbase is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Basic Black cardstock folded in half. A 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of Hometown October Afternoon paper was stitched to a 3 15/16″ x 5 3/16″ piece of Neenah White cardstock. Red Satin Ribbon was tied around it before a stitched 1 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ piece of stitched Hometown paper was adhered over it with dimensionals.

The sentiment is also from Hot Betty. It was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut out with Fancy Tag Spellbinders die. I cut the fancy part off. The oval was the perfect shape. The image was airbrushed with BG10. To finish the card front off I added three black Kaisercraft Rhinestones to the lower right hand corner.


The inside of the card is pretty simple. A couple of more Hometown paper strips were stitched to a 3 15/16″ x 5 3/16″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. The rest of the sentiment was stamped on Neenah White cardstock, cut with Petite Oval Nestablities and airbrushed with Copic Marker R24.

There is a new online store called Inspiration Emporium. I will start selling some of my cards there soon.  I am excited and a bit nervous about that. To celebrate the grand opening I received a coupon to share with you. 20% off orders! How sweet is that?


Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
