Two Different Cards- One Sketch from The Paper Players
I hope all of you are having a fabulous week so far!! I wanted to take a moment to stamp a few cards and decided to use the PP155 Sketch atThe Paper Players (love sketch challenges and definitely love The Paper Players! :-))
If you have not dropped by their site yet, I would encourage you to do so- they have a terrific Design Team and many other entries that showcase the versatility of the sketch!
One thing I love about stamping is that there are no mistakes per se- I usually keep previously stamped images and embossed pieces in case I can utilize them in the future and I was able to incorporate some of those pieces into the second card:-) Love it when that happens!!
Ink the chevron wood stamp from Truly Grateful (sneak peek of the new set from the upcoming Holiday Mini) using Crumb Cake Classic Ink and stamp onto two pieces of Whisper White cardstock. Ink the wheat image from the same set using Early Espresso Classic Ink and stamp over the wood grain image on one of the pieces and also stamp the acorn image- color using an AquaPainter™ with ink from Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink pads and use the Marina Mist Stampin’ Write marker to color the tie around the center.
Punch out the wheat image using the 2 ½” XL Circle Punch and layer onto additional 2 ½” Circles of Soft Suede, Whisper White and Early Espresso cardstock (each circle is cut in half horizontally and spread apart a bit before adhering to allow the edges to show behind the focal image).
Use a Decorative Label Punch to punch a piece of Early Espresso cardstock- cut in half vertically, adhere to the sides and add the Antique Brads to finish off the focal image.
Punch out the acorn image using the 1 ¼” Circle Punch and layer with two circles punched from Early Espresso cardstock using the same punch.
Ink the sentiment using Early Espresso Classic Ink and stamp over the second piece of stamped background created in the first step above. Trim the piece and punch the banner points using a 1” Square Punch- layer onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Whisper White using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and adhere to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.
Add the focal image along with the banner sentiment and acorn using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.

To create the second card:
Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Crumb Cake using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, sponge a bit of Early Espresso Classic Ink over the outside edges, trim and mount onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock.
Stamp the tractor image from Harvest Blessings using Early Espresso Classic Ink onto Whisper White cardstock and color using the AquaPainter™ with ink from the Cantaloupe Crisp, Calypso Coral and Gumball Green Classic Ink Pads.
Stamp the sentiment from Thoughts & Prayers onto Whisper White cardstock using Early Espresso Classic Ink and cut into a banner (use the 1” Square Punch to create banner points). Add slight distressing using the Color Spritzer Tool with an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker to the tractor image as well as the sentiment.
Cut the tractor image out using the Big Shot™ along with the Ovals Collection Framelits™ and also cut another oval from Early Espresso cardstock using the same size framelit™, cut the Early Espresso Oval in half horizontally to frame behind the tractor image oval and add to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Add the banner sentiment along with the Designer Brushed Bronze button tied with Hemp Twine to finish off the card.
