Tuesday Morning Sketches #245 - Sami Stamps!

Good morning! We have a fun new sketch for you to try this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches, and a brand-new sponsor - Sami Stamps! You can find Sami Stamps store HERE and her blog HERE.  The prize is a voucher for $12 which would equate to 3 digis of the winner's choice.  

I tried a new-to-me technique, inlaid die cutting, and made the eggy panel resting behind that sweet little chick (available here)

Supplies: Sami Stamps Easter Chick digi; Memory Box egg die; Wplus9 banner die' American Crafts cardstock & patterned paper; Bic Markers; Doodlebug flower stickers; Adirondack Citrus ink; classic small circle Nesties

I had some issues getting my coloured eggs to fit well in the spaces I'd cut, likely because I'd cut over the edges of the panel & so the white card stock piece became a little too flexible - I'm looking forward to trying this again. I sponged the edges of the Easter Chick panel with Citrus ink to give it a bit more pop.

Here's the sketch, designed by Melissa:




This sketch is open until next Sunday, April 20th  - be sure to hop around & see what the rest of the team created!



Because I used a whole whack of dies on my card, I'm also entering it in the April Challenge at Stamping Sensations: dies & punches! 

xoxo,
Jessi

I think it looks great, love the sketch and hope to try this one with an Easter card too. (don't hold me to it though)

A whole whack of dies.... is that an official unit of measurement? Like a murder of crows. It is cute card with a cute chickie. My friend in Michigan was joking that she wasn't dying Easter eggs this year because that would make them too easy to find amongst the snowbanks.

Careful -- inlaid die cuts can get a little addictive. A friend told me that. *koff* I think the background is perfect for this sweet card!

Wonderful Easter card! Cute little chick image! Love the inlaid die cut background, another technique to add to my ever growing "to try" list! Have a blessed and happy Easter!

Super cute! I want to try that technique, too. I just saw a video by Jennifer McGuire on it and it's cool looking. You did a great job with it!
