MFTWSC62-Emma and Her Backpack

Here is my entry for the Weekly Sketch Challenge over at My Favorite Things.    You can find all of the details here.  This weeks sketch is:

I made this card for my sister, Laura, who is also a teacher.  She is having surgery on Monday.  I'm going to bring it to her when I go visit.

I used the Emma and Her Backpack set for this card.  I colored Emma with Copics and then paper pieced her dress and backpack. Diamond Glaze was added to her shoes.   I wanted to add a pencil fence, but since I didn't have a fence die (and since I'm trying not to spend any extra money because I am planning on moving soon), I used my Stampin' Up Word Window Punch to make all of the little pencils.

Stamps:  My Favorite Things-Emma and Her Backpack
Ink:  Versafine, Memento, Tim Holtz
Paper:  Graphic 45-An ABC Primer
Misc:  Copics, Stampin' Up Word Window Punch, DMC Floss, heart punch Diamond Glaze, pop up dots

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. What a great card... I just love your pencil fence. My first inkling is to buy a new die and you've taught me to just look at my present tools. Tks for the inspiration... and for sharing your card for your sister. Hope everything comes out well for your sister and its nothing major.

  2. Yeah, I came here to look for the great pencil die too, lol. LOVE that you used your tools, I'm going to have to try this one out!

  3. A very clever idea about the pencil fence!TFS

  4. I luuuv your pencil fence! The cleverness of you ;) Your creations are always fantastic :) Hugs~
