SO, you are probably wondering what do you have to do!? You have to use Inkadinkado Stamps (newer...from this Spring-until now) as well as use one of our sketches that I will post here each Tuesday! You can enter as many times as you'd like! You are also free to post anywhere you'd like! We will post coordinating Keywords for the sketches if you are posting on Splitcoaststampers.com, so we will all be able to see your card(s)! You MUST however email every card to Lynda at lynda.benden@gmail.com She would really hate to miss any of your gorgeous cards and this will enable her to have all of them!

You will have until Wednesday, Sept. 30th at midnight (EST) to get your cards in to Lindsey. After that, the Design Team and Lindsey will need a few days to decide on the winners! Be sure to check the Design Team’s blog each week for LOTS of inspiration using the weekly sketch!!! We hope you will have time to play with us and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!!!!

Today is the day for the first sketch!!!

Here is what I came up with.

The colors were inspired by this palette I found on colourlovers.com this site is AMAZING and you should check it out for great color palette ideas!!

I stamped the Winter Birds image with White Craft ink, then went over it lightly with Rustic Red Shimmerz. I don't think you can see it in the picture but it is nice and glittery in person. The gorgeous snowflake paper is the new from the new line by Imaginisce called Snowy Jo, I used both sides for this.

Stamps: Winter Birds (Inkadinkado,) Three Step Holly & Mistletoe (Kitchen Sink Stamps, for the sentiment)
Paper: Snowy Jo (Imaginisce,) Basic Black, Ruby Red, Cranberry Crisp (SU)
Ink: White Craft, Ruby Red, Cranberry Crisp
Misc: Artful Collage Flowers (Prima,) Poinsetta Dew Drops, Sticky Pearls, Rustic Red Shimmerz
