March 2022 KBH Theme: Sketch Challenge

Happy Sunday my crafty friends! I hope you're all having a fabulous day!  Today the Kre8tors are doing a Sketch Challenge Blog Hop.  A sketch is a basic layout for a card (or scrapbook page) that you can use exactly, or modify to be similar. 

Here's our sketch for this hop:

I love sketches because they give you a nice layout for a card, but you're able to use any theme and products you like.  It'll be fun to see how all of the designers interpret this one! Be sure to follow around to find out. 

For my sketch project, I'm tapping into some leftover supplies from my "Lots of Pun" Paper Pumpkin Kit! I didn't get to give this kit enough love before, so I'm going back to play with it more.  

Paper Pumpkin is an absolutely FANTASTIC monthly craft subscription that comes directly to your door each month. It includes all the supplies you need to create whatever that month's project is. It's awesome! 

The Lots of Pun kit had supplies to make 9 absolutely PUNNY cards! 

They were super adorable as is, but there were tons of supplies in this kit. That left lots of room for alternatives! Check out all the fabulous goodies!

I took the sketch challenge and used elements from the kit to make the egg-cellent card you see above! The only things I added was a little  Daffodil Delight for the card base and Scalloped Layering Circle, and a piece of Basic White cardstock for the inside and Layering Circle and the scraps for the sentiment and eggs. 

On a strip of Basic White Cardstock, I stamped three eggs in Early Espresso Ink. That's the color of ink spot that originally came in the kit.  Dark and Light Daffodil Delight Stampin' Blends were used to color the yolks. I fussy cut all three and used them for the front of the card. 

I have a pretty popular saying related to the inside of the card. "No naked insides, and no naked envelopes." SO, for the inside, I carried the little egg over and colored it the same as the outside ones. 

I also stamped the egg on the envelope to tie it all together. I really enjoy a good Pun, so I loved this kit! I can see me using this stamp set over and over again! But that's the terrific thing about Paper Pumpkin!

Well friends, It's time for me to say goodbye. I hope you enjoyed my little Alternative project! I enjoyed making it and I really enjoyed the sketch challenge!
