Challenge Card for CASE Study, CAS(E) This Sketch and StampNation

Do you ever find yourself in a stamping rut with no inspiration?  I’ve found myself there a few times lately!  One thing that helps me get out of it is participating in challenges.  And that is exactly what I did for today’s card!

I combined three challenges:  StampNation:  Getting Sentimental, CASE Study, and CAS(E) This Sketch.

The StampNation Challenge goes like this:

Use more than one stamp set to build your sentiment!

Pull out those sentiments and see how you can make them work together.  

StampNation Challenge

Maureen used “Thanks” stamps from three different sets to build a fun and unique sentiment.  I used three sets as well with different words to build the phrase on my card.  Thank you for the inspiration Maureen!  

The challenges at StampNation never close and with almost 100 challenges in all, you will never lack for inspiration!  More info on membership here!  

Ok, so to see how this card was made view the video and see a few of the struggles I had with this card to get it just right.

    This card is so cute! I thank you for the explanation on the vellum use too. I have some vellum, but just wasn’t sure how to use it. I love the glitter and button on the butterfly. Thx much for sharing. You are so creative and talented.
