Welcome to the newest two-week challenge for Make My Monday.  Our host for this challenge, Claudia, chose outdoor sports for the theme.   I used the sketch challenge for Try Stampin’ on Tuesday 564 and a card by Jay Soriano of Mitosu Crafts as my inspiration.  

Here’s my card:


Here’s the sketch banner from TSOT:

While I am sharing the latest challenge sketch from TSOT, I also need to say thank you, thank you, thank you!  My card for challenge TSOT 562 was chosen as one of the top 3!  Thank you to the design team at TSOT!  You can see that card here.

Here’s the inspiration card from Jay Soriano:


This card is so adorable and creative!  While Jay used just the Waves of Inspiration stamp set, I  used the retired DSP, but the idea totally came from here.  If you haven’t checked out the mitosucrafts.com website, I highly recommend that you do!  They are extremely talented artists!  


  • The Pacific Point base measures 5-1/2 by 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches to create a tent card.
  • The Waves DSP (designer series paper) measures 5-3/8 by 4-1/8 inches. I also trimmed a piece of the DSP to 6 inches by 2-3/8 inches for the envelope flap. Then, I punched a 1 inch circle of coordinating DSP for the envelope seal, which I ran through my create-a-sticker.
  • Next, I trimmed a piece of white cardstock to 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.
  • That’s it for measurements.

What I Did:

  • After rubbing my embossing buddy over a piece of Pacific Point cardstock, I stamped the wave on it using VersaMark.. Then, I covered it in white embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool.
  • Next, I used the wave die and cropped the stamped wave. Since the die doesn’t match up exactly with the stamp, the result is a mottled look of white and Pacific Point.
  • I wanted two-toned waves, so I used a piece of Coastal Cabana and ran it through using the bark embossing folder. Then, I cropped it using the waves die.
  • I adhered the Pacific Point wave to white cardstock. Then, I adhered the Coastal Cabana pieces using multipurpose liquid adhesive. When I finished with that, I fussy cut the wave and popped it up on dimensionals.
  • I stamped the penguin in black ink on white cardstock, then added a Pumpkin Pie beak and foot. Then, I fussy cut him out.
  • Next, I used the hippo dies to crop the goggles and breathing tube out of Pacific Point cardstock and silver foil. I was able to use what I trimmed to make the strap for the goggles.
  • The penguin is popped up on dimensionals. I also added a tiny sliver of a mini-dimensional to the top of the breathing tube.
  • I stamped the sentiment from the Happy & Heartfelt stamp set in black in on white cardstock, then cropped it using a waves die.
  • Next, I adhered it to Pacific Point cardstock and fussy cut the label, which is also popped up on dimensionals.
  • Finally, I stamped another sentiment from Happy & Heartfelt on the white cardstock and adhered it to the inside of the card.
  • With that, this coordinated card, envelope, and envelope seal set was complete.
