Reject card! :D

This card didn't make the cut for the Paper Crafts Card Sketch idea book call. I liked the sketch and enjoyed creating a shaped card. Honestly, I'm not surprised that it didn't get picked up. I didn't like how the card came together. However, my least favorite cards are always the ones that get picked up, so I figured since I used the sketch, I might as well submit it. A little bit ventured, nothing gained. :D

Here's my take on Sketch #66:

At last year's Scrapbook Expo, I bought a set of Heartfelt Creation stamps that coordinated with a Nestabilities flower die set. I had used the dies alone and also used the stamps for some cards that I actually mailed (Yes. It's shocking!). But hadn't gotten it together to use the stamps with the dies.

I think I would have liked this better if I had used a different brown ink. The Chestnut Roan just doesn't work with the papers. Ah well.

I'll definitely use the dies and the stamps together again and will also make other shaped card, so it wasn't a total loss.

The sentiment is from my well-used Sentiments set by Purple Onion Designs. The patterned cardstock is from Bo-Bunny. I need to replenish my supply of the Polka Dotties!

Thanks for visiting today!


  1. Just lovely! The flower is just the perfect color and I love the fun layout!

  2. It's a great sketch Kathi, and I love your flower!

  3. I think it's lovely! I rarely do a shaped card, so it is great to see your fab card for inspiration. I have seen those stamps that work with the Nestabilities, but had my doubts. I may have to give them a second look now ;D
