Sketch 22 Challenge at STAMPlorations

Hi Everybody,

it’s time again for another sketch challenge at STAMPlorations and we are welcoming Leslie from The Crooked Stamper as our guest designer. As always the sketch on offer is very versatile and you can use any style of card or project as long as the sketch is recognizable. Here it is:


This challenge will run until 31st October and the winner will be announced 2nd November.

Here is my piece of inspiration for you:


Joyful Present 1

It is pretty straight forward …. emboss a piece of card using a suitable embossing folder, stamp the gift from STAMPlorations current STAMP CLUB set ‘Joyful’ onto your matching die cut – here is me hoping that Shery has already added them to the shop LOL, if not she’ll be doing that very soon-, colour the gift using Spectrum Noir Markers, stamp sentiment, attach your gift using foam dots and finish by adding a couple of gems.


Hope you enjoyed my little offering. If you feel inspired to enter our sketch challenge, pop over to the STAMPlorations Blog to enter and join the fun plus of course to see all the fab projects my teamies have created for your inspiration.

This is also where you can find out about the great prizes you can win in our challenges. We always have several of them on the go such as the ANYTHING GOES Challenge which is open to anyone using STAMPloratons Stamps, links to all our current challenges can be found at the top of our Home Page.

Enjoy the fun and Happy Crafting!!! 🙂

  1. Beautiful card, Monika!! Love that purple and pink pressie and the purple card base! The embossed background is so perfect with the image! And no, I haven’t added the cutting files to shop…I’m doing that this week, now that I’ve got a day or two to catch up with my little break from school schtuff. Hugs!
