Try Stampin’ on Tuesday Sketch #77


I haven’t done a Try Stampin on Tuesday challenge for a while, and I liked this sketch, even though I turned it on its side:

I had some pretty MME papers on my desk from another project, so I kept right on using them!


I used some already-shabbied-up ribbon and I realize that the darker blue looks a little odd here….don’t know why the ink did that!  But it sort of matches!  I know the recipient will like it anyway!  I added a pretty butterfly accent along with some lace from my stash:


Both the frame and the butterfly are stamped with SU’s Four Frames; the sentiment is from PTI.  Feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions!

Anyone ever play with clothespins when they were a kid?  Dropping them into a soda bottle or a jar?


Of course, it was only a matter of minutes before the floor looked like this:


She was very good about picking them up, though!!!  Training her early!


  1. Great card! Love the colors and the crinkle ribbon. I probably wouldn't have noticed the darker blue if you hadn't called it out.

  2. LOVE your gorgeous vibrant colors and the patterns are amazing! LOVE it--thanks for joining us at TSOT! :)

  3. Love that sweet paper pattern and colors, LeAnne! And also the way you did the sentiment panel. I have that Four Frames stamp set and rarely pull it I'm missing it! :)

    I played with clothespins and an orange juice (glass) bottle when I was a kid. I thought it was SO fun!

  4. That was always the party game. Drop the close pin i the bottle. That came before we heard about spinning and tipping the bottle. LOL
    Your card is so pretty. i saw another card today with that adorable paper. Very very pretty!

  5. LeAnn - Wonderful vibrant summery card! The second pic of Cassidy looks like she's ready for a game of pick-up-sticks! Oops! dating myself.

  6. So pretty! Love the colorful paper, ribbon and butterfly! Great combination! :)

  7. VERY nice card! Love the DSP Love the brightness of it and Love how you turned the sketch! Love that you played along with us at Try Stampin On Tuesday!

  8. Absolutely drop dead gorgeous LeAnne, I am thinking that paper is from Lime Twist. Every detail of this card is amazing!

  9. LeAnne, this card is gorgeous! I love how you used the pattern papers and the sentiment is simply perfect!
    I love the hand dyed seam binding too. I think the variance in color helps give it that unique, funky look.
    Just wonderful! TFS

  10. Just GORGEOUS, LeAnne! I love your vertical take on the sketch and those fresh pretty colors are awesome:) Hope you have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

  11. Adorable card, so bright and cheery. I noticed the heart punched from the butterfly, very clever.
    I loved playing with clothespin, and still do. And, you still have a clothespin bag! Bet those are hard to find these days.

  12. So beautiful LeAnn!! Love you take on the sketch!! :) What a beautiful little girl too!!!

  13. Lil' one is getting SO BIG! I love your bow and bright colors LeAnne. ;)

  14. These really are pretty papers and I love the card you created with them. Cute idea to punch the little heart in the butterfly. Love that bow.
    Oh yes playing with clothespins....what fun......the simple things again right??

  15. Beautiful and cheery card! Love the paper and trims.

  16. I love how you turned the sketch! Great Card!

  17. WOW, this card is stunning! Love how you turned the sketch on it's side. Beautiful DSP and that scrunched up dyed Seam Binding is fabulous! You totally rocked the sketch with this beauty:)Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!
