CPS Sponsor - Part 3

I can hardly believe that I am half way through my week of sponsoring the card sketch over at the Card Positioning Systems (CPS) blog. I have really enjoyed going to see everyone’s take on the sketch and I can’t wait to find out who will be the lucky winner of the stamp set, Life is Short. It’s got some really neat sayings that are perfect for both scrapbookers and cardmakers. If you haven't heard about my offer yet, you may pick out a free jar of Stickles with just a $30 order (and The Angel Company throws in a free stamp!) but you must email me with your order...

My take on the sketch today is a bit more true to form. Sewing machine stitching is so popular right now, and the Running Stitches from The Angel Company makes it quick. I don’t have to worry about hauling out my Husqvarna sewing machine that is currently wedged between the organ and a wall, covered by countless Lego boxes! The card itself is really easy. I wanted the beautiful papers from the Soar with It Collection to take the main stage and so I just embossed my elephant to give it a little “umph”. Did you know that we carry TRANSCENDENCE POWDER which allows you to emboss with Palette inks?


Card Materials:
Stamps:
Take Pride, Running Stitches
Papers: Hemingway Soar with it Collection and cardstock
Accessories: twine, embossing powder, Transcendence Powder

There is still time to upload a card for this week’s sketch! It’s really super easy.

1) Create your card using the sketch...
2) Upload your card to either your blog, SCS gallery or Flicker account.
3) Go to the CPS blog and under Sunday’s post, you’ll find MR LINKY where you type in your name and then paste in the URL of where your picture is!

Hope you’ll join us! And if you have a moment, please check out my last two posts as they contain more takes on this week's CPS sketch!
