New Sketch and a Surprise!!

Congratulations to our #8 card submission from last week! Tanja, today we drew your name for a free stamp set from Lee Conrey. Just send our operator Lee an email to pick up your Botanical Blooms stamp set!

Well, that was fun! You never know what you might win just for playing along with the operators! We won't always warn you that there's a prize!

Here are the measurements for todays cool sketch. Please keep in mind you can change these to suit your needs/taste.

Take a piece of 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock and cut it in half at 5 1/2" This will be your base layer.

Layer 2: 5 1/2 x 2 3/4" ( you can get 6 from one sheet)
The third layer depends on your image. Try measuring the block of wood you are using and use that for layer 4.

Note: you may want to try the technique Omitting for the sentiment. Just ink up a portion of your stamp for one side, then clean your stamp and do the other part of the phrase along the block.. You could use, happy ~ birthday, seasons ~ greetings, merry Christmas and so on...

Have fun! We are looking forward to see what you come up with for this week's sketch. Here's what our operators did!
