The challenge runs from August 15th to September 25th, so you have plenty of time to play along!! Did i mention there are prizes!! I hope to see your cards or projects!!

I played along with the sketch challenge, flipping it on over on its side. I started with a white card base and masked off the top part of the card. I stamped the sketchy hearts from the Surface - Tag Stamp Set with mint ink. I also used the tiny heart and raspberry jam, stamping it off first.

Next i masked off a small strip just above the hearts and painted on some gold smooch. While that dried i die cut 3 tags with the Surface - Tag Die - Starter Kit. I used the matching solid polka-dot stamp and inked up one tag with mint and the other in the raspberry jam. I left one tag white.

I also die cut the little tag attacher thingy (not sure what its called). I also painted it with the gold smooch. I stamped Friend from the Flower Circles Stamp Set with the raspberry jam ink, i stamped it again just off set with out re-inking to create a shadow.

I layered all the tags together, added the little tag attacher and tied some twine in knots. I also looped the twine through the attacher, i feathered the tags so you can see part of each tag. I added the tags to the card base with foam dots.

Fun sketch huh?! I hope you all will play along! Have a great day!!

  1. This is sooo sweet and pretty!!!

  2. Fabulous take on the sketch, Dana, combined with some cool showcases of Waffleflower products! I'm crushing over those tags! I must play, for two reasons: 1. you as inspiration and 2. I have a set of the bowties stamps/die. No excuses, right? Right!! Thinking cap on tightly!
    Happy Saturday!

  3. I really love the trio of tags and the patterns you picked, and the gold for the tag holder thing!

  4. Tag attacher thing is the official name, I'm fairly sure :P Love the hot pink and gold together - and that smidge of mint is perfect!
