If it is Saturday, then it must be Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge day!! How are you liking the banner challenges the past couple of weeks? I've loved them and can't wait to see what you do with this one!I just got my Back in the Saddle set and knew I wanted to use it (you wouldn't believe how jam packed it is with amazing images and sentiments!! Love it!!) this week. I immediately thought of banners and bunting and went straight to my Americana paper collection. I mad the little bunting by simply punching a circle and then cutting it in half!
I strung the banner onto some thick rope twine and frayed the ends to give it an old time feeling. I stamped the card with a number of images and a sentiment from the set. Oh I can tell this one is going to get a lot of ink!
I finished the inside of the card in the way I saw someone do it (must have been one of the DT members but I can't remember who!!) during the previews. I simply stamped once in Chocolate Chip ink, then stamped off twice for the other two horses. I love the shadow effect - looks like an old western movie strip!
Have fun and I'm looking forward to all of your pennant'y creations!!

Hello and welcome to another great challenge at Papercraft Star! This week we have a sketch challenge for you and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
I took the layout challenge and turned it into a get-well card for my mother-in-law. She had minor surgery last week and I hope this will help to cheer her up a bit! I chose bright yellow card stock and the adorable Li'l Buddies stamp set from Waltzingmouse Stamps to make the three framed chick images. I recently attended a Copic certification class and this is my first attempt at shading! "Pick a color and then pick two friends..." :)
If you aren't familiar with WMS and you love your Spellbinders, you'll love the frame stamps that are made to coordinate with all of your favorite dies! You can see that I used Labels 10 and the coordinating stamps to make cute frames for the chicks.

There is no stamping on this card - I used papers and a Wild Card attached to a shipping tag. I distressed the edges of the papers and the tag with ink for a vintage feel. Have a great Tuesday and I'll see you tomorrow for my Papercraft Star challenge reveal!
Supplies: DP - Campfire Collection (October Afternoon), Tag (Uline), Ink - Tea Dye Duo (Papertrey Ink), Ribbon (my stash), Card Stock - Old Olive (SU!)

I first selected the stamp set I wanted to use, Dream Big, and immediately thought of my Hollywood Vogue papers from Webster's Pages. I love the big spotlight and the wonderful deco designs of the papers. If you look closely, you can see that the text in the small panel is some "script" from Wizard of Oz. Fun stuff!

I was very fortunate to come into a number of vintage replica postcards and found these two St. Patrick's Day cards in the stack. I used my Irish Blessings set to stamp the green backgrounds with shamrocks (first card) and the Celtic braid for the second one.
For the second card, I stamped a die cut label with shamrocks and a sentiment from the Irish Blessings set and adhered it on top of the postcard. I finished both cards with some shabby ribbon.
Thanks for joining me on the dance floor and I'm off to get some waltzing in myself! :)
