Scrimpy's card sketch challenge.

Well hello Sunday and hello to our fantastic Sketch club blog post. I run this group through the week and ladies this week had to follow the above sketch provided by my fab Stampin' Up! team member Stacey Donaldson. I choose on victim .. sorry I mean one of my team members each week to help me out giving ladies inspiration and just encouraging crafter to get crafting. Then we can showcase their work here . I just love how these ladies create totally different cards from the same layout suggestion. It highlights just how amazingly creative we all are and how we all see different possibilities just in a basic car. So here is a selection of the weeks contributions. All of them fantastic and as I say each one unique .. We hope you enjoy them and can get some inspiration for our work ... follow the blog to keep checking in and saying hello ... lots to see so come join the fun .... x Amanda

As my fantastic team member Stacey Donaldson choose our sketch only seems fair we show her card first. And wow what a superb card . Using the In the Lines DSP from Stampin' Up! I love how she coloured just two panels it really makes her card pop.

Card by Carol Ann using the Hey chick stamp set by Stampin' Up!, awesome bold colours great fun.

Card created by Valerie litten, using Stitch edged framelits by Stampin' Up and pretty dusky pink with gold foil card. a really lovely interpretation of our sketch.

Card by the talented Karen McClure a stunning valentines theme. Karens natural ability shines through with this simple yet stunning design.

Card by Geraldine Reardon AKA little snippets. Fantastic retro style bold shapes and funky colours. A real eye popping card.

Card by Carol Bradshaw Stampin' Up! demonstrator using great techniques with shaving foam to create the background. How awesome I bet she got real messy making this card .

Card created by Danielle Rose Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Using the beautiful you set and soft pretty colours finished with a feminine bow to the bottom . Outstanding card.

This stunning card was made by the lovely Janet Stokes. I love how she inked the background to get the colour she needed. She has used Avant garden stamp by Stampin' Up! A very soft and pretty look.

Created by the very lovely Janice Thompson Stampin' Up ! demonstrator who I have had the pleasure of meeting several times now and she's quite crazy and has a great sense of fun. She has created a stunning design using the So in love and falling in love embossing folder.

Beautiful card created by Zena Lindsay, nice choice of matching floral papers. A very soft vintage feel to this card . Again another totally different interpretation on the sketch which really stands out.

Card created by Jean Schultz, what a fun card with these fantastic dinosaurs on perfect for any little boy / monster. Totally adorable! and very unique.

Card created by Carol Ann. She has made fantastic coloured bees from the detailed dragonfly thinlits from Stampin' Up! which really makes her design stand out .

Beautiful card by the lovely Elaine Spencer who I know is a Stampin' Up! enthusiast. Fantastic use of colours on this card. And what a pretty bow!

Outstanding card by Grace Carranza . Some really good layering on this card and the colour combo is super pretty giving a very crisp refreshing look.

Stunning red and white card by Carole England. I love how she used parts of the window box thinlits die from Stampin' Up! to create her squares so the red card shows through. Great use of the die. And wow another perfect bow! maybe she can give us some lessons ?

Great card from Steph Stoker Stampin' Up! demonstrator. another totally unique design. I adore the bold pink tones of this card so bright and sassy.

beautiful card by Debbie harper Stamping' Up! demonstrator. A really lovely creation using one image and cutting it up re arranging the pattern . A very clever idea.

Finally here is my own take on the sketch using Rich Razzleberry, just love the Stampin' Up! colour names.

Happy stamping xxxxx Amanda
