Stamping with Friends and a Saturday Sketch Challenge

I love using card sketches (almost as much as I love CASEing the Catalog) for inspiration. I was invited to join in a Blog Hop with my Stamping With Friends group and this time our challenge was to use a specific sketch. So much fun! Here’s the sketch:

I decided to use the new Sweet Talk Suite from the J&J Mini Catalog. The DSP in this suite is, of course, gorgeously fun and easy to use. The stamp set is super cute. It actually surprised me. To be perfectly honestly, I was kinda like “meh” when I first saw it, and thought “I have enough hearts/v-day stamps.” But I love LOVE the dies in this suite. I bought the stamp set (because if you buy the dies, buy the set – and vice versa – ALWAYS…you’ll regret it otherwise). Anyway, using the set has me love it. It’s adorable, I really love the fonts, and the “shadowy” images made a great background too. Here’s my card:

And, I couldn’t stop there! I made a 2nd card using the same sketch:

This one uses other product in the Suite: the adorable little tag in the Sweet Heart Dies, the Gingham Embossing Folder, and the Real Red Faux Linen Ribbon.

Same sketch, same suite of products, completely different looks. See why I love sketches!?

Please take a few minutes and “hop along” in the Blog Hop so you can see even more different looks using the same exact sketch. My talented friends will not disappoint you! You can follow along by clicking on the links in the Roll Call below, or click the “next button” here:
