AmyRS72 – Amy’s Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all enjoying the ideas & inspiration from the past week! I thought I would show you another card I made this week for the Amy Rysavy Sketch Challenge -> AmyRS72.

Such a pretty sketch … and I wanted to show you one of the new sets from the BRAND NEW mini catty that is starting on Aug 1!!! The theme of this card was based around the most adorable new set called “Forest Friends” … a set of 4 cut stamps costing JUST $24.95!!!


Cute Cute Cute!!! This set is going to be great for baby cards, don’t  you think??? I used my Afternoon Tea DSP to start as I thought the little wildflowers were just perfect for a little forest scene.

Card Recipe:

  • Stamp Sets: Forest Friends (Aug-Nov 09 Spring Mini Catalogue!) Fresh Cuts (phrase)
  • Cardstock & Papers:
    • Whisper White – A5 + 8 x 8 cm + scraps for stamping animals
    • Pretty in Pink – 10 x 5.5 cm
    • Certainly Celery – 8 x 8 cm
    • Afternoon Tea DSP – 12 x 8.5 cm
  • Inks: (Colours of DSP) – Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, So Saffron, Basic Grey
  • Extras: Silver half pearls, So Saffron satin ribbon (ret. ribbon originals), Eyelet Border Punch

I did have a little trouble cutting the circles (yet again!!!) I used my circle cutter … but it just isn’t the best one, I don’t think … I wish SU! would hurry up and stock one for us!  So many gorgeous sketches ask for circles in the layouts … and I find I avoid them because I don’t have a decent circle cutter! Maybe when our big new catty comes out next Sept there will be something special in it???? Guess we’ll have to wait and see!

Just popped back to Amy’s site to get the links for this sketch … and saw that she has added another … “an oldie but a goodie”! Can’t wait to try it out … it is just gorgeous!

Off to do another cyberstamp challenge. We had lots of fun doing the scavenger hunt last night! It was hilarious. We did it in a chat room … and the hostess asked for details from many of the items in the new mini catty. We had to type our answers super quick … as the first in with an answer won a point. It was a new experience for me … and I did have trouble with a delay with my internet speed … but even though I was handicapped I really enjoyed the conversation and the company of the girls! Oh … Leonie (S) … you need to get your clock checked!!! Leonie turned up just as we finished … and said “did I miss it”????? LOL … I giggled my head off!

signature-picHope  your weekend is a lovely one! So much still to share … so keep on popping by!

    Ur circles look pretty good to me Andrea…and this stamp set reminds me of Bambi (the movie) every time I see it. It is a way too cute card….now all u have to do is wait for the babies to pop out so u can give them. Ur scavenger hunt also sounded like a real hoot (no pun intended). Glad a good time was had by all.
    Andrea adds: oooh yes! Bambi!!! So Cute!!! We did have a lot of fun!!! I really enjoyed my first ever cyberstamp! Thanks for popping by, Lynda!!! xxx
