Sketch and Stash Challenge #2

Hi Everyone!

Can we firstly take this opportunity to thank everyone who took part in our first challenge! The response was overwhelming and it was such a pleasure to see all your new stash (and all that stash which you've finally got out and used!!)

For the first challenge we had a love themed prize, and the winner chosen at random is...

Emma from Crafty Emma

Congratulations Emma, please contact Becky with your address so we can get you your prize posted out!

For Challenge 2 we have a Guest Designer spot available for Challenge 3 and Challenge 4. If you would like to be considered please add GD to your comment. And don't worry about "not being good enough" that doesn't apply at Sketch and Stash!! The GD call will close at Midnight on Friday as this will give the Guest Designer a full week to create their card, but you can continue to enter the challenge for fun until our next challenge on 2nd Feb.

So onto this weeks challenge, here is the sketch for you to follow, use your new or never used (or neglected) stash on your cards and let us know what these items are, it's as simple as that!!

And here are the cards by the Design Team for a little bit of inspiration...


Becky has used a Dottie image from the Rock 'n' Roll Downloads available from Charmed Cards and Crafts which she won as Blog Candy from Dottie's World. Also used up are some neglected papers!!


Chrissie has used two of her unused Magnolia images on her card. She has combined the Magnolia Swing with Edwin with Glasses (love him!!) both available from Sir Stampalot.


Lisa has used her new Forever Friends papers from the Party Time pack, along with her super cute Penny Black 'Imagine' image which she has had for a while! Both items can be purchased from The Glitter Pot.

Thanks once again for visiting us and we look forward to seeing your creations!
If you don't have a blog you can email your entries to

Love the Sketch and Stash Team xx

Here is my BRAVO, Purrfect Birthday attempt at a chance for a DT spot. Thanks so much for the opportunity.

Wendy - Anntaurus said...

Here is my card for this one:-

I used some new Pearlised card.

Caryn said...

Hi, Here is my creation
I have tweaked the sketch ever so slightly - hope this is ok?

The stamps have been in my stash for over a year - never had any idea what to do with them but as this card evolved I knew they were just what I needed. I hate to use my ribbon too so this has also been sitting neatly curled up in a bag since I bought it about three mmonths ago!!

Oh, I would love you to consider me for the GD spots too.

Kym's Crafty Cards said...

Helloe everyone. What lovely cards have been made. I used some new heart brads and some velour ribbon but then used up some papers I'd had for some time.

My card can be found at:
