Sketch CHallenge 03

Okay, ready for sketch challenge #3?????? :D

I really liked this one because it has the elements tucked behind each other, which I definitly don't do often and I don't see often, so I figured it would be fun to play with.

You can see the sketch in the attachment below.

And here is the super cute card done by pugs99 that inspired the sketch.

Have some fun tucking things in on your card! If you can, please post your creations for all to see and admire, and if you can't, well, play anyway!!! Try to get it done before next Wed., when the next sketch challenge is posted!

Hello... I am so excited about this new challenge. I posted my card just now. It is the bears. I will come up with more ideas. That one I just couldn't resist. When my card is approved, I will share the link. :)

Sereikastamper 01-13-2005 03:02 AM

Oh my word this is so funny! I just woke up and thought about making a card that is soooo similar to this challenge...now I have to make it!!! LOL

Kuchette 01-13-2005 03:13 AM

Hey Keri!!!! Are you me???? LOL
Well a sketch challenge is a challenge where you look at the sketch and the card that it was inspired by adn you design your card like it so that the images and elements are similar, but you use your own flavor of stamp set and color pallette. :D

NiceRAK 01-13-2005 03:26 AM

Okay I am seeing doubles!!!

NiceRAK 01-13-2005 03:28 AM

I just wanted to say I have been lurking through the challenges. I LOVE the challenges.
I fully intend to participate when I get back from Regionals...
Thank you all for sharing your amazing work!

StampinLeslie 01-13-2005 04:11 AM

Can't wait to play when I get home from my crazy day of my son's appointments!

Thanks so much for posting the newest sketch!!!!

:D :D :D


kayinrd 01-13-2005 05:11 AM

Hi Keri ~ I will be the first to admit, I have not understood this concept since day one. I don't get it and I see nothing when I look at sketches. It's been very hard on me and I am definitely amoung the "I don't get it" crowd.

dkstampinfool 01-13-2005 06:15 AM

Oh goodie! I'm in! :) I'll be ready to play tonight when I get home. And I'm looking forward to seeing all the great samples everyone will come up with...

happy stampin'

11Valerie11 01-13-2005 06:36 AM

I'm in..........a bit later on, after a bunch of errands this am.


Back from a busy, busy day..............here's my card:



billsbrowneyedgirl 01-13-2005 07:25 AM

I just noticed under receint gallery additions, that pony110 has a sketch challenge #3 posted!!!


Darttella 01-13-2005 07:36 AM

Okay, I did 2, but wasn't happy with the 2nd one... but here's the 1st! FUN FUN! Tomorrow, we'll see if the muse is with me and I'll get another one up! :)


tc82742 01-13-2005 07:51 AM

ooh.. ideas running..a nd i am at work with no ink or CS. looks fun!

s1itcher46 01-13-2005 09:19 AM

Here is my spin on sketch #3. I needed a birthday sample for the next workshop.
It isn't quite like the inspiration card. It's what came about when I didn't like the cake or balloons on rectangle shapes.


needsmorestamps! 01-13-2005 09:30 AM

This one will be fun :) Can't wait to have a few minutes to play!

Wenfaye 01-13-2005 10:03 AM

I love these challenges. Here is my attempt at this new one.



Here is a second attempt,


Sereikastamper 01-13-2005 10:04 AM


Here's mine! This was fun! :D

MyPrecious 01-13-2005 11:17 AM

Here is mine -


I am not a fan of it by any means - but it is up to the challenge - and it is not my everyday hum drum card -

Thanks for getting me to think out of the box!

bambi64 01-13-2005 11:21 AM

Here is my card. Thanks for the idea!



CrabbyAbbe 01-13-2005 11:48 AM

all right, I was not inspired, and it took me all afternoon, but here is what I came up with. It still seems to be lacking something to me. Any suggestions?


luvtostampstampstamp 01-13-2005 12:16 PM

Can't wait to give it a try!

altheazebrina 01-13-2005 12:36 PM

I love these!
I am so enjoying these challenges and am planning to take them to my stamp club(I mean to challenge them with).

Here is one that sort of fell together today and it wouldn't have been near as wonderful without the challenge.
Thanks! Colleen

Think of the "sketch" as being a formula or layout suggestion, not an actual sketch of something. This term really threw me at first until I actually saw one of the original layout sketches. I thought that people would be actually sketching freehand on cards, LOL!! :D AndreaSophia (I hope I got that right!) draws a "sketch" of the basic layout or formula that would be nice for the challenge takers to include in their card. You then interpret it anyway you so desire, as you can see by all the fabulous cards being generated by this talented group of women! This is sort of like the first few pages of the old SU! Stampin' Memories catalogs in which they gave a few scrapbook page layout examples. Clear as mud? HTH!!!

Sharon Graham 01-13-2005 02:03 PM

My attempt. As I commented, it is shamelessly copied from PrincessInk. I didn't quite do her justice. It may still be pending approval.


AndreaSophie 01-13-2005 02:12 PM

I think that's a great explanation, Laurie :D

I guess this just started with me going through my favorites and noticing all of the different places and ways you can put your image on a card. All of my cards seem to have the same design, a block of stamped images in the middle with a stamped saying in the bottom right. My stuff was starting to look boring to me lol, so I really started paying attention to where other people put their stamped images on the card (called the layout or sketch of the card) and wanted to emulate them, so thus, the "sketch chalellenge" was born! Nothing formal, I just wanted something fun to do for myself and thought others would be intereste din it too.

So basically, you get out whatever paper, embelishments and stamps that you want to use to make a card but you put them on the paper using the "sketch " for the week. So, maybe I was doing the fishy friends set with this week's sketch. I would maybe put a blue strip across the lower section of the card and then stamp a fish on 2 different pieces of cardstock, and then I would tuck them behind the strip like the sketch is laid out.

I hope this is helping clear this up for some people, sorry about the confusion! The goal is just to get out some stamps and play and maybe get out of the rut , like me, of putting my cards together in the same way so they look the same all of the time. No pressure, just play around with it and see how it goes. Its all about having fun with our stamps, which sometimes we forget to do.

marymoilanen 01-13-2005 02:59 PM

Wow, everybody's cards are really cool. I have some ideas and just need to get busy!

kmjenkyns 01-13-2005 03:52 PM

here's my first attempt. I'm not real happy with it, but it was fun playing. I'll have to try another one.

My second attempt will be here, eventually, it's still pending

luvtostampstampstamp 01-13-2005 06:43 PM

Here's my challenge attempt! I hope it downloaded alright...it seems to get stuck downloading and when I stop it and go look in my gallery, it's there. Don't know why it keeps getting stuck in the download process!


11Valerie11 01-13-2005 07:25 PM

I decided to do another submission to this challenge, I just wasn't real pleased with my first one, so using the same bg papers, but different sets and embellishments, I made this one and like it much better.



kmjenkyns 01-13-2005 08:44 PM

I also wasn't too happy with my first attempt. So went back to the tried and true purple and here is my second attempt. I like it a lot better.


shouldstampmore 01-13-2005 09:18 PM

AndreaSophie-Thanks for the sketch challenges-they motivate me!!! And I love seeing everyone's awesome work. :D

Crysta 01-13-2005 09:39 PM

I'm SOOO not happy with my creations for this challenge. This one really stumped me. Here are the two that I came up with so far. I'm going to try one more time.... they say that third time is a charm. We shall see. :)



addicted2stamps 01-14-2005 03:31 AM

Here's my contribution!!!
