It is Sunday Sketch time, Alison Solven from Canada here today.
Each Sunday Patsy Waggoner from the US (my border buddy) and I take turns creating a card using one of our card sketches. Sketches can help get your creative juices flowing. I find that when I'm stuck and seem to have lost my stampin' mojo a sketch can give me the spark I need. They are open to interpretation, no real right or wrong way.
Today I'm featuring TWO adorable stamp sets – one is brand new from the January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue called Hey Birthday Chick. Do the little chickens look familiar? If so it's because they were first introduced to us in the 2017 Sale-a-bration catalogue with a set called Hey Chick. Both stamp sets along with coordinating dies will be available starting February 1st!
Hey Birthday Chick Bundle (158631)
Hey Chick Bundle (158627)
You can create a card using the sketch exactly as it's presented or switch it up – it's meant to be a starting point for your creativity.
All Stampin’ Up!® products were used to create today's card.
