Hi Friends! It’s time again for another Paper Players blog challenge. This week, Laurie has a sketch challenge for us. Sketch challenges are always a great source of inspiration. They’re a fun way to spark your creativity. Use your favorite colors, add in some special patterned paper and create your original.
I don’t have anything like the What’s Cookin’ Bundle in my collection, so I made sure this was on the top of my Wish List. The images and sentiments are perfect for tagging baked goodies, designing recipe cards or creating a simple card to reach out to someone.
My card today is a simple So Saffron cardstock base. The black and white buffalo check patterned paper is a good neutral background for my cutting board, bowl, spatula and whisk. These are all die cut with the matching Cookin’ Dies. The stamped bowl would probably look good in red, too! I’m happy with the Bermuda Bay and So Saffron combination but it’s fun to imagine another color.
Below are the layer dimensions for today’s card. Feel free to use them for the sketch challenge.
- The card base is a standard A-2 Tent Fold card. 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.
- The Basic White large layer is 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.
- I cut the patterned paper layer 4″ x 5 1/4″.
- The smaller So Saffron layer is 2 3/4″ x 4 1/8″.
- The smaller Basic White layer is 2 5/8″ x 4″
Have fun with the sketch and link up with us over at the Paper Players. We always enjoy seeing your beautiful designs.
…the only limitation is your imagination!

I love the checks…and I love to cook so this card is really up my alley…so cute!
So cute and I love the colors! The black really sets off the Bermuda Bay and So Saffron! This sketch was made for the little cluster of kitchen items! Hope you have a great weekend!
Fun card Debbie! The colours are terrific together! I haven’t bought this stamp set yet, but I’m getting close 🙂 Thx for the inspiration!
Debbie, I am obsessed with this card. I love the bright pop of black and white gingham and those elements clustered together, with a little touch of black are fabulous. great take on the challenge
LOVE LOVE LOVE this card! I am trying to resist buying this set because I already have something similar, but it is so fun to see what you created with it, especially with that plaid background!! Awesome card!
Perfect paper choice, Debbie! It looks amazing with the So Saffron and Bermuda Bay. The dots and twine are just the right accents. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! Have a wonderful weekend!
This set was one of the first into my basket too Debbie and I still haven’t used it yet, so might have to CASE your card to put that right! Love the gingham border frame and pops of yellow – a great card!
Debbie, this is absolutely DARLING! Love the mix of colors with the buffalo check pattern. SO happy this bundle just arrived in my mailbox this week. Thanks for the awesome inspiration!
This is absolutely adorable.
