When I saw this technique called Thumping on Beate’s Blog I really wanted to try it, and then last week I saw she did the Gate Fold so I put the two of them together and came up with this card. “He He” do you like what I titled it, Garden Gate?
Stamp Set: Essence of Love Card Stock: Certainly Celery, Not Quite Navy, White, and Certainly Celery Prints DSP Ink: Wild Wasabi and Not Quite Navy Accessories: Ticket Punch, Circle Punch, Designer Label Punch, Large Oval Punch, Brads, Organdy Ribbon.
Wow I really used a lot of punches on this one, hope you all enjoy your Tuesday.
To create my card today, I used Jessica Rone’s sketch from Great Swaps Girls (GSGC02)
Now there is the Sketch and my Monday colors are Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Only Orange, and Bashful Blue (let’s see what I come up with).

Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoyed what I came up with.
I am busy preparing for my trip to Italy. I have been making cards and posting them early so you have something to look at while I’m gone (really I just don’t want you to forget me 🙂 ). I thought it might be fun to share with you some card sites/blogs that have sketch challenges each week so that you could check them out and play along. Having the sketch really makes it so easy to put a card together quickly. If you use a sketch I would love to see the card you made. Consider also posting your cards on a site like Splitcoaststampers. It is a great site for inspiration.
I haven’t been to this website for a while and I recently saw several cards on other blogs using their sketches so I decided to check it out again. I saw a couple of sketches I like but went with this one as there was something about the simplicity that appealed to me. I also immediately thought of the Embrace Life set and the Ginger Blossom DS paper which I hadn’t used in a while. Here is the sketch and what I created.
Stamps: Embrace Life, Noteworthy (retired) Paper: Cameo Coral, River Rock, Ruby Red, Very Vanilla, Ginger Blossom DS Ink: Basic Black, Ruby Red Accessories: Ruby Red brads, photo corner punch, dimensionals, sponge.
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
