SIP Challenge 83 – A Sketch!

Home / Blog / SIP Challenge 83 – A Sketch!

Well, we definitely got that Nor’easter yesterday! Crazy winds and lots of rain last night. There were power lines down and all sorts of other storm related things happening. I was glad to be in the house, binge watching This is Us! Completely addicted to the show, I’m up to episode 9! The earlier part of yesterday at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store was busy. Renee had her Home Decor Class, lots of people coming in to paint their wood pieces. I managed to get a few things done and ran to the Post Office to mail out some craftyย goodness, always a highlight of the day! Today, more projects to do! Love my job! ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s Tuesday and that means that it’s time for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper challenge…

The first thing I did to create my card was to stamp the Concord & 9th Tree Ring Photopolymer Stamp in Hero Arts Soft Brown and the heart and love from the Concord & 9th Tree Hugs Photopolymer Stamp Set in Hero Arts Crimson Hybrid using my Mini MISTI onto Ivory 110lb, I triple stamped the tree ring and double stamped the heart and love. They are trimmed out with my Scissors and put aside. To my card base of Ivory 110lb I adhered a piece of Carta Bella Beach Day Surf Shop 12×12 Paper. Much the Renee’s delight I inked the edges with Soft Brown using my Mini Ink Blending Tool! (she likes to ink everything!) The paper is then adhered, a little askew, to the base. I used Fun Foam and E-Z Runner to adhered the tree ring and heart to the card. I slipped a piece of Chinese Red in between. It needed a little subtle sparkle so I added some Pretty Pink Posh Raspberry and Sand Sequins and the card is finished! We all know how I love a little woodgrain and that’s why I love that Paper and Tree Ring Stamp! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team card for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Sketch Challenge! Take a minute to stop by the BLOG and get inspired by the rest of the Team and add your card to the gallery! Thank you for stopping by! Have a nice Tuesday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Hi Justin! I binge watched “This Is US” yesterday, too! Great show! Miss Justin H. on Young and Restless though. (I admit, I still watch Y & R—I watched since the first episode! I love this card! That stamp set is so fun! Have a great day! Stay warm! XX

    1. Hello Claire! I couldn’t stop watching, it is an excellent show! I never watched Y&R, I didn’t know who he was until this show!
      Glad that you enjoyed the card! Love the stamp set!! You have a lovely day!! XO ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. We had that same weather here yesterday and are in for another overcast day and possibly more rain. Yesterday was miserable to be out. Great card, Justin. I love the wood circle with the heart, the strip of Chinese Red and, of course, the sequins! Have a great day! Sending warm hugs your way, my friend.

    1. It was a rough day yesterday for sure HJ! It’s supposed to stop raining soon here. I hope that it does!
      Glad that you like the card! I so love that Tree Ring Stamp and the pop of red is fun! Hope you enjoy your day! Big hugs back to you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you Brenda!! And I thank you for placing the order though the store!! So happy to offer the discounts! I can’t wait to get it in and send it out!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Gotta’ love that tree ring stamp! I too really love all the stamps depicting wood grains and I think they can be used for any holiday or occasion. Your Chinese red flag really brought everything together. Great job.

    We are getting the Nor’easter today. Right now it’s that heavy wet type snow that’s coming down. The winds don’t seem to have started yet but I’m sure they will get here. I haven’t seen This is Us yet as I’m not much of a TV watcher. Is it a comedy? Wishing you a warm, toasty Tuesday my friend. Love and hugs, XXOO ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes, Grace I love that Tree Rind Stamp and anything woodgrain! I think it works great with so many different things! Thank you!
      I hope that some of the storm has dissipated by the time you get it, it was seriously windy here! We had a lot of coastal flooding too. This is Us is amazing! The acting is superb and the store is great! It’s a drama. I don’t watch much TV but this is worth it! Hope you have a great day! Love and hugs to you! XOXO ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Thank goodness it’s rain and not snow or we would be digging out for days! I actually carved out some time to make a card to tuck into an 18 lb. box of things I was shipping to Melissa because they didn’t fit in my suitcase. I will post to Instagram once she gets it. It felt so good to get inky!

    love today’s card. It’s the perfect Valentine for a man or a woman!

    1. I know Linda! Snow would have been really bad! I look forward to seeing your card!! Love a little crafty time!
      Glad that you like the card! Yes, would work for just about anyone! ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. What an awesome Valentines card, it is so different. Love it. I forgot how nasty some of your storms can be. The beauty of living off the coast. Tke care

  6. Hi Justin! I’m back! I had my hip replacement Tuesday and I was sent home yesterday! I can’t believe it. For those of you who may need total hip replacement surgery, don’t freak out as I did. It is immensely easier now than before the surgery. I did my three little steps in physical therapy on Thursday and got discharged Friday. We are totally amazed.
    I love your tree ring card today, Justin. How simply perfect! Sequins look right at home on the woodgrain. Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Nancy B

    1. Hi Nancy!! Welcome back!! YAY! I’m so happy to hear that everything went so well! We always make more out of things than we have to! You’ll be back to your old self in no time!
      Glad that you like the card! You know I love some sequins, I think that they look good on most everything! LOL! Hugs to you my friend! ๐Ÿ™‚
