Card Sketch Challenges

In Case of Zom-bees!

I have always been a little afraid of the dark. My grandparent’s house had a long hallway that stretched the length of the house and the light switches were at either end. At night, that hallway was pitch black. My grandfather would wait at the end of the hall until you were halfway, switch the light off and in a deep voice yell, “BOO!” Much screaming and running ensued and an occasional slip and fall (hard wood floors and socks!), which would lead to crying and a soothing dish of ice cream to the injured. The sad thing is, I did this to my own children AND now do it to my nieces and nephews! Please, they love it…

I’m still a little jumpy in the dark, but I love decorating for Halloween! I need to start prepping and planning my Halloween decor. I wanna do this in my backyard!


In the mean time, I made this instead.

Garden Shed digital elements printed on Club Scrap cardstock. Faber Castell gelato in Banana to color the bees and hive, Stickles for sparkle on the wings, and Vintage Photo Distress ink for the distressed edges.


I designed my card in Photoshop Elements (PSE) using Club Scrap’s (CS) Garden Shed digital kit and I used the card sketch from the CS September Card Sketch Challenge as inspiration.


This was so much easier than lining up a stamp image! Though, I did have to use a little geometry to line up the spades. I never thought I would use that again after high school!


I added one of the background images as the base and layered with my digital stamp image.


I created the sentiment layer using digital elements from the kit and the Jury Duty font that was also used in the kit design.


The color print cartridges needed replacing on my printer because the final result printed blue and purple tones, but I liked it!

In case of “zombees”…KEEP CALM and don’t get bitten!

  1. This made me laugh! I thought you had stamped it at first glance -it’s amazing what you can do digitally now isn’t it. And well done for resurrecting your geometry skills!
