Hi there, and happy Sunday!  Wait.. that means Monday is tomorrow.. well, I hope it’s a good week.

Today I’ve made another sketch card for Unscripted Sketches  sketch #51.

I’m loving the colours and, of course, the vintage book paper.. Don’t you love the little birdie too? Squishably cute, I think. Thank goodness for Verve Stamps!

I picked up this raspberry cardstock at a shop somewhere near Washington DC when I was there.  I’m going to be sad when it’s gone, as I don’t know if I can get it again.

Les instructions
  • Make a card from a 4 1/4” x 11” piece of raspberry cardstock, then cut a strip of patterned paper and punch out a scalloped piece to match (2 1/2”).
  • Tear a strip of vintage book paper, then cut a square (2” diag) from a blank spot in the book.
  • Make a flower from 5 punched book pieces, attach with a brad and crumple.
  • Stamp birdie in Black on white cardstock, and again on patterned paper.  Cut out wing and attach with pop dots.
  • Stamp sentiment (AMuse) in black.
  • Edge everything with Antique Linen distress ink (I love it!), and attach together.  Voilà!

And here’s the sketch



About Shauna

I fell in love with the art of rubber stamping when I was 12 years old. I blame my grandparents. I already had every crafty hobby imaginable when they bought me a few stamps, an ink pad, and some embossing powder. I was hooked. From that point on, no special occasion has gone unmarked by one of my hand-crafted creations. Scrapbooking came next, and though it isn't my first love, it's a close second.

  1. Shauna, this is too cute!!! I love the newsprint & the colors! I hoard/covet paper too… but I’m beginning to realize there is always more cool paper out there! I have so much that it would take me 5-10 years to use it all (wish I was Kidding…) Thanks so much for playing Unscripted!!!
