Timely Sketch Challenge

Time … well thats something that I dont have a lot of lately! DSC57

These past couple of weeks have been very busy for me and I’m grateful that after consulting my diary last night that I have a quiet week coming up. Maybe I’ll be able to find some time to do some Christmas Shopping or maybe I should just give everyone stamps??

Yesterday I attended Stampin’ Up! Regional Training in Sydney and I had the best time – I even managed to get all the make n takes made – the first time I’ve done this at a Stampin’ Up! event since joining. We used new stamps from the upcoming Summer Mini Catalogue and they are very cute to say the least and I’ll show you those projects during the next few days.

Here is this weeks sketch and here is my card …

DSC57I wanted to do a masculine card as I wanted a card to send my dad for his birthday.  Living over 1000 kilometres from my parents and sister make it hard to see them as often as I’d like so I like to make their cards a little more special.

I love the Sense of Time stamp set and havent used it as much as I’d like and I love collage stamping so I thought I’d combine the two for this Challenge. If you do like the Sense of Time stamp set then you’ll need to purchase it by the end of November as the Spring Mini Catalogue finishes  and this set will no longer be available after 30th November.

One of the requirements for this week’s sketch was to use window sheets but since we dont have them here in Australia I couldnt use them. Maybe we will get some in the Winter/Autumn Mini Catalogue due out in April 2010. I’ve seen lots of lovely things made with them and hope we get some too so we can play with them too!

This card has a few different techniques – Masking, Collage, Pastel (chalk) popping and sponging – all the things I love to do!

If you think you’d like a go at collage stamping then I would just love to show you how I do it so why not contact me for my Collage Class or Technique Class or I can come and do a demonstration for you and your friends. I guarantee you’ll all have a great time and enrich those friendships you already have.

  2. Wow! You’ve really created the perfect “mood” with this card! That sense of time stamp set is lovely! I’m so disappointed I haven’t added it to my collection and with only one day of the spring mini left it’s a bit too late for me!

  3. Leonie, this a beautiful card I think it works male and female. I love your soft colours, and your choice of stamps for the collage.

  4. I often admire your lovely creations but don’t often leave a comment – shame on me! This card is so beautifully put together with the collage technique, soft colours and contrasting bright background coloured cardstock. What colours were used? Love the way you photographed it too!

    Wow thanks Bronwyn for your lovely comments. The colours were Chocolate Chip, Bordering Blue and Really Rust for the cardstock. ~Leonie~
