3 Clover's Thursday Challenge #11-Follow the Sketch

3 Clover Thursday Challenge is here again! Nothing better than a good sketch to get the ideas flowing! I needed to make a couple cards so I did a couple different takes on this weeks challenge. I flipped the sketch a couple different ways and went to town. I wanted to use some more of the my designer paper from the Stampin Up Specialty Series. Wow, I love this stuff!

For the little embellishment I wrapped twine around the ribbon and then threaded it onto the button and tied real tight! A neat trick I have seen online!

This is my once a month all Stampin Up card!

Card #1

Stamps: Full of Life-Stampin Up Sentiment

Cardstock: SU Parisian Breeze, Choc Chip

Ink: Choc Chip

Misc: SU Button Latte button, Ribbon Original Valet by SU, SU twine


This is the second card I made for 3 Clover Thursday Challenge. This one used a funny Penny Black stamp that always cracks me up...I can just see a bunch of chickens running around trying to put out the candles on my birthday cake..hehehe! The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday Challenge to do whatever you want...anything goes! How easy is that?

I played around with my SU markers and watercolor paper and water pen. FYI-Memento Black ink does not work when watercoloring. It smears and just makes a mess, even after being heat set...don't ask me how I know...or maybe I knew and forgot already LOL!

Card #2

Stamps: Penny Black Best of Luck!, Retired SU birthday sentiment

Cardstock : Sweet Slumber Specialty Paper from Stampin Up, Baja Breeze, SU watercolor paper

Ink: Stamps by Judith watercolor black ink

Misc: clear button, SU celebration ribbon
