Another way to win!

>> Thursday, July 15, 2010


Just last month we had a "Stamp a Day Giveaway" and sent out 30 cling mounted stamps to 30 lucky winners. We were having so much fun we just couldn't stop and got to work planning new ways to win!

The first thing we came up with is a sketch challenge - Yeah!!!

This is the sketch I was given to work with ~

I've only done a couple of sketch challenges in the past , so it took us 2 tries to get it right :) I say "us" because I had help from my 2 nieces - Andi who's 13 and Krissy who's 12. As they say, a fun time was had by all!

This is the card we came up with (the second time :) ~

We stamped the Dog Angel using black dye ink and colored him with markers (we all colored one and then voted on which one we liked best. Andi was the unanimous winner). We added a little shimmer to his wings and halo, and then sponged on some light blue around the edges.

Here's where we changed things up a bit - instead of having this card open like a regular card we decided the layers of the sketch would unfold to reveal the inside message.

For the middle layer we stamped our Dog Paw Background with taupe dye ink around the edges of textured cream cs and added our Loss of Pet Sympathy Greeting to the center using blue dye ink

This layer unfolded to reveal our final message - our Pet Sympathy Greeting was stamped in the center, again using blue dye ink.

Easy Peasy as they say!!

Here's all you need to do to play along:

Create a card or other papercraft creation using the sketch above. DRS Designs stamps are not required, but if you do have some we would love to see you use them for the challenge. Click here to bring you to the original post so you can add your card to the InLinkz Box. You have until 11:59pm ET on July 26th, and then we'll pick 2 winners from all of the participants who can choose either the beach or golf stamp package (shown below) as their prize!


Thanks so much for stopping by! Good luck and remember to check back often for more stamp giveaways!!
