That’s Sketchy

Have you ever used card sketches? They’re a good way to jump start your creativity by giving you an idea for a card layout. You can interpret a sketch any way you’d like, using any stamp set! And it’s really fun to see how others apply the same basic idea.

This month’s Stampin’ Up! Creative Challenge is this sketch:

I have been stamping with the Lighthouse Point bundle for my workshop coming out later this month, and since I already had pieces cut, I made this card. You can find the link to the supply list at the end of this post, and if you like this stamp set, join me for the workshop!


-Basic White Thick cardstock

  • 5-1/2” (W) x 8-1/2” (H), scored at 4-1/4” along the long side

-Basic White cardstock

  • scrap to fit sentiment

-Pacific Point cardstock

  • 5-1/4” (W) x 4” (H)

-Tahitian Tide cardstock

  • 4-1/2” (W) x 3-1/2” (H) to start, then cut into THREE 1-1/2” (W) x 3-1/2” (H) pieces after embossing

Die Cuts:

-Basic White cardstock

  • lighthouse

  • light

-Crumb Cake cardstock

  • rocks

For the triple panels in the front, I started with a piece of Tahitian Tide cardstock and added texture with the Into the Clouds embossing folder. Then I used a sponge dauber to blend on Whisper White ink to highlight the clouds Next, I cut the piece into 3 panels and adhered them on top of the Pacific Point layer. I find it easiest to do the panels on the sides first, and then come back to center the middle one between them.

The lighthouse was stamped with Crumb Cake and Sweet Sorbet inks onto Basic White cardstock, and the ray of light is stamped in Soft Saffron. The rocks are Crumb Cake ink stamped on Crumb Cake cardstock.

I hope you’ll get a chance to try the sketch challenge too!
