Sketch Saturday Challenge #276

Happy Saturday!

There is a new sketch challenge at Sketch Saturday.  I made 3 cards today all using stamp of the month kits from Taylored Expressions - June, July and August.  They were piling up I admit it. 

The sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp and the prize is a $25 gift certificate to one lucky winner of the challenge.

Here is Sketch #276 (designed by Jen):
For my first card, I used Taylored Expressions: S'More Fun, which was the August stamp of the month.  Love this set.  The papers are We R Memory Keepers "Happy Campers".  The camper top is paper-pieced and I added some twine in-between the papers to hide the seam.  The birthday wishes sentiment was from a different TE set "Posh Posies".
My 2nd card uses Taylored Expressions: Cute Hoot, which was the July stamp of the month.  The papers are Basic Grey "Kneehighs".
For my 3rd card, I used a mirror image of the sketch.  The set is Taylored Expressions: "You make me Happy", which was the June stamp of the month.
The umbrella and boot are paper pieced with Simple Stories "Vintage Bliss" patterned papers.  I colored parts of the boot and the handle with R24 and R43 Copic marker.  I added some shadow to the umbrella with N1 marker. The pinking edges circle was done with a scalloped punch and I double punched it. 

All images are welcome at Sketch Saturday, so give our sketch a try and enter our challenge.  You can see more inspiration from the design team HERE.
