Unscripted Sketches 155

Saturday, April 21, 2012

The mailman brought me a new, very cute stamp set today that I couldn't wait to ink up.  So, once supper was over I went up to my stamp room and searched around blogland for a sketch that seemed like a good fit for what I had in mind.  The latest Unscripted Sketch was just the ticket!

This is not the usual sort of stamp that I go for, but when I stumbled across it a while ago there was something about it that I thought was so much fun that I decided I had to have it!  There's actually a whole bunch of monsters in the stamp set that are just as adorable as this little guy.

Now, on to the cardstock and DSP for this one.  When Stampin' Up! first came out with In Colors so many years ago, I hoarded all of the colors.  {Surprise, Surprise}.  One of my favorites was Vintage Violet.  I still have one un-opened package of cardstock  as well as half of an another one.  I also have some DSP from Halloween Night, which includes this gorgeous Vintage Violet page that I used for the biggest layer on my card.  I covet this so closely that I can barely believe that I cut into it for this card!  But there's no point in keeping this stuff forever, so in an effort to really demonstrate my commitment to using up my stash I cut into another page from this same package:  the old olive paper with the funky circles.

Both papers seemed to fit this funny little fellow so I'm not at all upset about seeing my stash depleted!

Thanks for stopping by!
