CSS Alumni Sketch Blog Hop

It is time for another Stamp TV CSS Blog Hop. This is a sketch hop and a fantastic sketch it is. Thanks Melissa!I really wanted to make two cards with this sketch but time just got away from me. So here is the sketch and the card that I made with the sketch. 



You should have arrived from Melissa Schultz blog and you were undoubtedly blown away! If you want to start at the beginning  or get lost along the way, just head on over to the home page of StampTV.

The card was made using the new stamp set called, Dino-Mite designed by Theresa and sold by GinaK. Having 13 grandchildren there always seems to be a birthday around the corner. This set is perfect for the next grandson birthday. He will love it. I tried to make it boyish. I used Pure Luxury Moonlit Fog for the base and the embossed panel and the frame. The dino was stamped on some paper from Basic Grey called "lime Rickey". I also used it as a panel behind the brown print paper from the same paper pack. I embossed the grey panel after inking the Cuttlebug folder. I had those green buttons. I embossed the sentiment but was disappointed with the color of green. Doesn't match but I could not start over. Aaron won't mind or even notice though!


Now hop on over to visit Pam Imhol  for some more inspiration. Thanks for hopping along with us and for the kind comments you leave. It is good to be back!

Oh, don't forget to leave comments as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (February 1st), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!
