This week over at The Paper Plunge, we are working with a sketch challenge!  One of our designers, Robbie, created a great sketch in 
My Digital Studio (MDS) for us to use!  These are my favorite challenges! I love taking a simple picture & "modifying" it! I love to see what everyone else does with it! You'll have to visit The Paper Plunge to see the sketch tho!!!

So here's my card:

I have been so excited to use a bunch of my new goodies from the new
Occasions Catalog that goes live on January 6!!! It. Is. Amazing!!!!!! The best one hands down!!! That also begins our Sale-a-Bration catalog!!! Can I just say FREE!!!!! Yup!! You can get FREE items!!!! 

But anyway, more about this week's card! All the components are from The Occasions Catalog except the card base & the Gold Ribbon (with of course the Mini Stapler to attach it!)

The stamp set is called Adventure Awaits!!! It's some really cool large sized images! I love it! Different than anything else we have really.

But the kicker is it's stamped on our new Chalkboard Paper with our new Yellow Citrus Colorbox Chalk Inkpad!!! Oh this is sooooo cool!!!! I think this will be one of my favorite new techniques! Can't wait to really explore that!!!

That really cool background is from the Adventure Bound DSP Stack!!! Yup!!! Photographic images! Wait till you see them all!!! Soon cool!!!!!!

I figured I'd try a bit of a "grunge" or "steampunk" style. I've been trying to get a grip on that for awhile! This is a very simple card of that style, but thought it kinda worked!!! lol

So go pop over to The Paper Plunge & see what all the other designers have in store for you!!!! I'm sure you'll enjoy! Try your hand at uploading your pic to the blog! Super easy to do! Just click on the Linkz link & it'll take you right there!!!!

Happy Stamping' 2015 to you all!!!


  1. Cool card, Joni. I was wondering what the background was. I didn't get that paper yet, but it's on my next order. Nice job. Love the chalk paper.
