Waltzingmouse September Pajama Party - Challenge 4. Bedtime Story Sketch.

I'm back again with my second post today for the Waltzingmouse September Pajama Party - check out the full details here .

Challenge 4 is the Bedtime Story Sketch as shown below.

I really liked this sketch and I needed a couple of new home cards, so I decided to make two versions of the same design in different colours. 

I had received a lovely parcel of new stamps and dies from Claire on Saturday and I couldn't wait to play, so I chose to use the Funky Flowers stamps and dies, together with the Gift Card It Stamp set and dies.

I started with two white 5"x 7" card blanks and matted one with Aqua Core'dinations card and the other with pink card. The two large white panels were then stamped with tiny flowers and leaves using Memento Pistachio dye ink. I added some of this ink to an acrylic block, misted it with water and used a small paintbrush to paint the leaves. I used the same technique to paint the flowers, using Teal Zeal and Angel Pink inks. 

The two centre panels were cut using the gift card die and stamped with the smaller leafy vine border. The tiny house (from Country Labels Four) was stamped with Desert Sand and Gray Flannel ink, which I also used for the sentiment. I added a band of ribbons to each card and mounted the centre panels with foam tape to add dimension. 

Finally I added flower and leaf embellishments, cut from felt with added tiny spotted buttons for the blue card and pink card stamped with flowers for the pink one. 

I am really pleased with how these turned out! Thanks for looking!


  1. Gorgeous Lynn, beautiful detailing and lots of little things for me to case! :) thank you so much for playing!

  2. Both cards are just super. I love the pretty flower backgrounds and the simple sentiment panel. Great work!

  3. Sorry I missed these during the PJ party Lynn! Two pretty versions in pink and blue!

  4. These are so adorable Lynn. What great backgrounds you have created with all the small flowers from the set. The floral background helps your focal image just pop from the rest of the card. Great job, and I'm so happy you could play along with the WMS Pajama Party!
