Stampin’ Up!® Turtle Friends Birthday for the Paper Players PP542- Sketch Challenge

Today I have card for The Paper Players Challenge which is a sketch challenge.

Here is the card I came up with using the Turtle Friends stamp set by Stampin’ Up! This is such a cute set. My Mom loved turtles. She collected little turtle figurines. When she passed away, each of her 16 grandchildren were allowed to select one of the turtle figurines to take with them. This card is a tribute to her.

The paper on the lower third of the card is from the Whale of a Time Designer Series Paper. The turtle is stamped in Shaded Spruce ink onto Just Jade Card Stock (CS). The bird is stamped in Pacific Point ink onto Balmy Blue CS. The card base is Balmy Blue CS and is embossed with the new Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. The rhinestones are from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

Here is a peek at the inside. So adorable!

For more ideas from this sketch challenge visit The Paper Players to see how other crafters used the sketch for their cards.

Have a most wonderful day and take some time to craft.



Hello, my name is Theresa. I have 4 children and a wonderful husband of 30 years. I am a retired Family Physician. I love having time now to create and craft, so much so that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator more than 5 years and am having a blast! Not only do I get to craft, I meet new friends from all over the world! Crafting gives me something positive to do and to share with others. I love to have my monthly Zoom Card Making Classes so others can craft with me. I have so much fun creating the cards for others to make! My blog was initially geared toward the beginner stamper in order to help others get started stamping on their own at home. If you need information to get started, look for my first blogs. My more recent posts have been cards and projects for Blog Hops and challenges. Stop by to see my projects and those of folks from around the world! Add more creativity to your life today!
