CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge #269

This week's we have the last of Karen's challenges. I've really enjoyed them all this month and I hope you have too.

Being the 4th week of the month means it's time for a sketch challenge, so here goes.


I have had the Share What You Love products sitting on my craft table for the last few days, so decided that I could pair some of those for the challenge.

Lilypad Lake Make N Take

Friday night was team training for the Acorns, so everyone who could make it piled into my craft studio to learn more about what went on at OnStage and all the exciting news about the new Annual Catalogue, Colour Revamp, New Ink Pads etc. It's such an exciting time at Stampin' Up! at the moment.

I designed a relatively quick and easy Make N Take for everyone to make using the Lilypad Lake stamp set and also cardstock and inks in the new 2018-2020 In Colors. The Lilypad Lake stamp set and co-ordinating dies will be available as a bundle from 1 June as will all the new In Colors etc.

Hidden Letter Technique using the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set

My eldest niece was 21 at the beginning of the month and today we get to celebrate. She loves all things flamingo so when I saw the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set sitting on my shelf I knew I had found the ideal stamp to use on her card.

I wanted to try something a little different, and opted to use the Hidden Letter Technique. And, this is what I came up with when I combined the two.

There are four stamps that make up the flamingo so I decided to use my Stamparatus (available 1 June if you didn't get one in the pre-releases). The Stamparatus made is easy for me to not only stamp the image on the card but on the envelope too.
