TCP Tuesday 220 - Sketch Challenge!

Hello again!! Another week has flown by and it's Friday again.  This week's TCP Challenge at The Cat's Pajamas comes from our Hipster Hostess Amy Sheffer and it's a super cool sketch!  Honestly, it scared me a bit at first - lots of layers! Eeeeek!  Seriously, I've really gotten away from a ton of layers so now they're a bit intimidating. BUT, this is a challenge so I just went for it and I have to say now I love the sketch!

After seeing some of the fun and innovative cards Amy R's been making with The Mustache Set I wanted to try a funky mustache card.  Lots of pattern because, yes . . .lots of layers! *wink*

The paper pad is from LilyBee Designs, it's Buttercup. It has the most amazing patterns and colors and I think it works great for even a masculine card.

I used the Mustache CutUps dies to cut my big mustache (actually I cut 3, 1 from the patterned paper and 2 from thick cardstock, then I glued them all together so it seems thick like chipboard). The Circus Border CutUps die made a great decorative edge and I added some pewter brads to the point. I also used Aqua Seam Binding which matched perfectly!

Check out Alma's blog for the details of this week's challenge and how you can enter for a chance at this week's Cat Cash prize as well as this month's Swanky Stamper title!!  Then come chat with us in the TCP Forum at Splitcoaststampers.  Thanks for checking out my card today!



  1. Sweet! The mustache is so funny and perfect as a place for the sentiment

  2. Love what you did with this sketch, Julie! The mix of patterns is fantastic, and I love the two seam binding ties!
