Shopping Our Stash #468: Getting Sketchy With It

Hello everyone! Today I am excited to share the Design Team cards made for Shopping Our Stash challenge #468, a sketch challenge.

Supplies used:

Card #1

This card was so much fun to make! I had stamped Pinkfresh Studio's Citrus Bloom stamp set, which is one large stamp that creates multiple citrus bloom images all at once, with Nocturne VersaFine Claire ink and heat embossed them with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder on watercolor paper a few weeks ago to take with us when we went away on a mini vacation. While there, I had colored this image with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.

Once I was home again, I used the Pinkfresh Studio's Citrus Bloom die set (again, this was one mega die to cut all of the images at once) to cut out the stamped images. While at my die cutting machine, I decided to die cut the rest of the elements for the card: the background panel paper from Park Lane Floral Wonders 12x12" paper pack with the second-largest stitched die from Gina K Design's Master Layout 2 die set, another patterned piece of paper from the Floral Wonders pack with the smallest die from the Pinkfresh Studio's Diagonal Stitched Circles die set and finally a piece of gold glitter cardstock using the second-smallest die from the same die set

Then I started assembling the card. I glued the two circle die cuts together so that the gold glitter cardstock circle was the frame for the pink inner circle die cut and set it aside to dry. I don't have a rectangular die that has curved edges, so I rubbed some Comet (green) Gelato around the edges of the leafy rectangular die panel, making sure to add additional green around the edges to make the inner (non-gelatoed) part of the panel look like the rounded rectangluar panel in the sketch. I then glued the two circle die cuts to the center left part of the card base to mimic the sketch. The panel (with the two circles attached) were glued onto an A2-sized white card base. Next came the washi tape. I added a piece of pink washi tape across the cardbase to mimic the horizontal strip in the sketch, and then added some Girl of All Work's Lemon Trees washi tape over the pink washi tape. The washi tape was trimmed at the two edges of the cardbase. Next, I attached the Citrus Bloom image over the circles and the washi tape to mimic the smallest circle in the sketch using Altenew's Instant Dimension Foam Tape. Then I added a sentiment from Pinkfresh Studio's Foiled Sentiments Ephemera Pack on the bottom right side of the card with more of the foam tape. To finish the card, I added some sequins from Catherine Pooler's Vegas, Baby! sequin mix.


 Card #2

I just wanted to share one more card that I made using the sketch. This features two images from the Pinkfresh Studio's Citrus Bloom stamp set. As mentioned above, the stamp and die set create all of the images at once, so I had a few additional images to play with. I paired these two images, and glued the bottom one to the card, and attached the top citrus bloom with more foam tape.


We hope that you are able to join us for our challenge over at Shopping Our Stash and thanks for reading!


  1. Beautiful bright colours, your flowers really shine out against the soft. pretty background.

  2. what a beautiful floral design and you've used the awesome SOS sketch soooooo wonderfully!

  3. Both cards are great, love the colours and the background is a good backdrop for those super petty flowers. Inking the corners really gives the illusion of rounded corners. (I have a corner chomper and it wasn't in that secret hiding space)

  4. Beautiful and springy!! Fantastic coloring...great idea to take along for down time on a mini vacation!!
    Great take on the sketch and also fantastic inspiration to those who decide to join the fun and play along with our sketch challenge over at SOS!!
