It is Sunday Sketch time, Alison Solven from Canada here today.
Each Sunday Patsy Waggoner from the US (my border buddy) and I take turns creating a card using one of our card sketches. Sketches can help get your creative juices flowing. I find that when I'm stuck and seem to have lost my stampin' mojo a sketch can give me the spark I need. They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way.
Today's card features the Press On Stamp Set from the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue. You can't have enough stamp sets that feature coffee and tea because they work for everyone you know and for every occasion!
You can create a card exactly using the sketch layout or change it up a bit. You can also turn the sketch so if it is a vertical sketch you might want to turn it to be horizontal which is what I did with my card today. Let your imagination run wild!
All Stampin’ Up!® products were used to create today's card.
