OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch #9

If you are here to see my post for the Operation Write Home Spring Brake Bloghop, please scroll down one post below this.  Thanks for stopping by!


I was so excited when I received an e-mail from Karen Howard of the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps Blog asking me come up with a Sketch Challenge.  I already made these four cards to share my idea with you a few weeks ago.  I tried what I can add or make variations on this simple sketch.  I hope you will like them and play along with this sketch.

S&S Sketch #9

Card #1

* For this card, I used the digital image "Cupcake Monkey" from Dustin Pike. I colored it with Bic Mark.It markers.

Card #2

* For this card, I printed out the sentiment from my computer and used MS Lace Border Punch.

Card #3

* For this one, I used alphabet stickers.  By rubbing the sticky side of stickers with baby powder, I removed stickiness of stickers and attached them with pop dots.

Card #4

* For this card, I used the colored version of digital image "Rosy with flower" from Fred, She Said Digital Design. The sentiment is Hero Arts' rubber stamp.  By adding more layers or embellishments or changing the location of sentiment, you can see how the sketch can be turned out.

Now, I want to share one more of my budget tips with 3D Foam Squares. We all like to add dimension on our cards, don't we? Since I make many cards for our heroes, I had to find more use of this product. What I do is to cut a square into four quarters so that I can have four times more of them. I took a picture of the process to give you a quick reference.


  1. Seongsook, ALL of your cards are wonderful, but I just love the one with the puppy on it. You did such an amazing job of coloring the image! You must have been awfully busy last week with the blog hop and all. Thanks for sharing everything with us. Blessings, Louise

  4. I love this sketch and your cards! Great job! And great tip! I do that already - but I don't store them that way - I might be stealing that!

  5. Seongsook, Thanks for the wonderful sketch. It is quite simple and yet can be used for such elegance. I LOVE those two MS punches that you used - I have both as well and plan to use them today - making cards for Mother's Day for OWH. TFS

  6. Beautiful cards, Seongsook!!! Thanks for the awesome sketch challenge this week!
