Sketch and Stash Challenge 12

Hello and welcome to challenge 12 at Sketch and Stash. We had another fabulous response to our last sketch, we would like to thank you all for entering our challenge, your cards are amazing!
We also had a Guest Designer call and Becky chose Di, if you haven't checked out Di's work before you are in for a real treat, we can't wait for Di to join us for the next 2 challenges.

We also welcome Jill as a permanent member of the Design Team, we were so impressed by Jill's cards and dedication that we couldn't let her go!

This challenge we are so excited to have been sponsored by The Character Cafe and each of the Design Team has kindly been given a Character Cafe download to play with! The Character Cafe is a new stamp company specialising in digital stamps. They are an angel company offering a variety of designs with the cardmaker in mind. The owners, Kendra and Kelly provide a wide variety of unique characters with the intent of branching into rubber in the near future.

One lucky person who enters our challenge will be chosen at random and will win 3 downloads of their choice from The Character Cafe!

And here is the sketch we would like you to play with! As always please use your new, never used or neglected stash and let us know what it is! (The flowers are for sketch decorative purposes only, feel free to replace these with other embellishments if you wish!!)

We hope you'll be inspired by the Design Team cards and we hope you'll like the cards we've made with the Character Cafe downloads too!


Becky chose 'Rainy Day Sophie' as her download. She has also used her new Basic Gray Boxer papers and neglected script paper and swirl stamp.

Becky also made a card using her new Sugar Nellie stamp.


Cathy chose 'Brady and Stacey "Swingin" ' as her download. She also used her new Papermania large brads and flowers.

Cathy also made a card using her new Sugar Nellie stamp and her neglected Making Memories papers.


Chrissie chose 'Precious Emmy' as her download. She also used her new large and medium retro flowers punches from Hobby House.

Chrissie also made a card using her new card candy from Craftwork Cards which she got in a RAK.


Jill chose 'Syd Nutty' as her download. She also used her new Nitwit download papers and Prima leaves which have been in her stash for ages.

Jill also made a card using her neglected stash including her Bildmalarna stamp called 'Mimisa', Dream Street papers, and brad and crochet flowers from Poppicrafts.


Lisa also chose 'Syd Nutty' as her download. And used Daisy and Dandelion papers, Prima flowers and card candy from her stash.

Thanks so much for joining us again this fortnight, we can't wait to see what you all create!

Love the Sketch and Stash Team!!
