I am so glad you are here for the second post of the day! From now on, you can expect two posts from me every Wednesday. My Artisan Wednesday Wow post and my Freshly Made Sketches post. So Wednesday is REALLY going to be an awesome stamping day!! Today’s challenge from Freshly Made Sketches is from the lovely and awesome Rita Wright. I just know you are all going to have fun with it!!
I needed a birthday card this week and this sketch was so perfect to use! I thought that using my Hexagon Punch to create little windows for the aliens from Blast Off would be fun. Let’s face it, these little aliens are just so adorable! And perfect for a 7 yo little boy. I punched the hexagons and then stamped the aliens on separate paper so I could position them. I added the scallop for a little pop of extra color and the sentiment is from the same set. To make sure the hexagons lined up just right, I drew a light pencil line on the back of the card stock and used it as a guide for punching.
The team has created some awesome cards this week and I know you will appreciate them as much as I do. Now you may notice that this is challenge #99. Hmmm….what do you want to bet that we have some AWESOME stuff lined up for sketch #100 next week!! *smile* We can’t wait to see what you create for this week and then make sure you come back for the fun next week!
Thanks for stopping in for two posts today! I’ll be back on Friday night (Saturday for e-mail followers) with an extra Artisan treat! See you then!
