When you play along with us, please remember to post your sample to your blog or gallery, and then include a link in the Mr. Linky form at the bottom of the post so we can all easily find each other. There is no time limit on our challenge, so please play along whenever you are able!! If you upload to SCS, please include “stampsandsmiles” in the keywords.

Stamps and Smiles stamps are not required for our challenges, grab some of your favorite stamps & supplies and have fun with our sketch each week!

Here is what I did:

I printed one of the images from the new digi release, on a piece of paper and trimmed it to fit a A2 card. (I actually printed it 2 times). One of them I ran through my Cuttlebug to get the impression on the whole thing. The other one, I just colored and cut out. I placed the cut-out image over the one I ran through the Cuttlebug, and now the background (with 2 birds) is embossed and the cut-out is not. This is a fun technique! give it a try!


  1. Your card is just beautiful! The embossed white backround, the extra birds, just stunning!


  2. Jennifer this is awesome! love all the birds and will try printing then embossing. So you emboss before coloring or after??
    i have soooo much to learn :0)

  3. Jennifer, I love how you added the extra birds to the image! She is so sweet!
