Thank you using Studio Sketches

I've been showing you cards made with my favourite hostess sets this week. These are sets that you earn for free when you host a qualifying party or place an order for £150 or more. You also get to choose one when you join my Stampers Six club (see details above). A free stamp set? Sounds great doesn't it? But that isn't all! You also get to choose free items from the catalogues!

Personally I think getting fabulous quality crafting supplies at a great price is incentive enough but I'm always game for a freebie! Here's a thank you card I made with one of the sets I earned:

I combined two stamps from the set to make the fruity image. I have to admit to being the world's worst colourer but I can just about get away with it... I think... No - please don't burst my happy bubble!

Here's how to make this card
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock 13.5 cm x 8 cm. Stamp the two fruity images in the top half of the card stock using Chocolate Chip ink.
  • Colour the resulting single image with markers and a blender pen.
  • Scallop the bottom of the card stock and fold it up so that the scallops touch the bottom of the coloured image. Give it a nice sharp crease with a bone folder and glue the fold closed.
  • Tear the top of the card stock being careful not to tear the picture.
  • Mount this onto striped designer paper and tie grosgrain ribbon round it in a flat knot. Stamp a sentiment across the dp and the torn card stock.
  • Matt onto Really Rust card stock and adhere to a Very Vanilla card base.

Stamps: Studio Sketches, Basic Phrases
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Card stock: Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Really Rust
Other: Markers, blender pen, So Saffron grosgrain ribbon, Sweet Pea designer paper

I dedicate my card today to all my blog readers. I love it that you come to visit, leave me comments and sometimes decide to follow my blog and I want you to know that each one of you is very much appreciated. 
I wish you a very happy weekend!


  1. Beautiful card Vicky. Your colours are perfect, I love the torn effect with just a peek at the patterned DP. I have to disagree about the colouring though. I am definately the worlds worst which is why I seldom do images.

  2. Gorgeous card, love that stamp set.

  3. I like how you tore the edge of the paper to reveal the stripe. Very nice still life image.


I love reading your comments. Thank you for taking the time to leave them! Vicky x
