A sketch: A Drunken Stampers Challenge

Drunken Stampers has an awesome sketch this week, I know because I'm a team member and tried it out myself.

It's a layout that lends itself to several design options, including the one I chose, Asian inspired.

My Chinese character sort of means "happiness." Sort of because I tweaked the shape a bit to get the exact fit you see here.

This card also features a stamped and pearlized branch from a Cricut die-cut (woohoo to cutting whatever stamp shape I need, whenever I need it).

I used a Cuttlebug folder for the pressed embossing and designer paper from Die Cuts With a View. Also, the branch background is inked with Distress Ink Tie Dye.

Hope you like this, and that you'll find a minute to join the Drunken Stampers Challenge!


  1. CB you did a wonderful job with the sketch! I so wish I could cut any stamp I wanted whenever I wanted! Life would be almost perfect! lol

  2. This is beautiful, love the colours and design. I also wish I had a cut any stamp I wanted as well, how fab would that be.
