Postage Due for Stamping and Blogging

Hi Everyone,

It’s time for another Sketch Challenge from Stamping and Blogging. I love the sketches that Sandi comes up with. Sometimes challenging for me but that’s alight. 90% of the time I’m amazed at the results, not just mine but everyone!! lol

Here is the sketch

SB 99 Apr 9

Anyway I do love how this one came out! I guess because it’s Black and Vanilla with a splash of color. Love that! Like y’all didn’t know that about me. hahaha

postage due

This card features the Postage Due Stamp Set….so easy to work with. I love that all of the above is in one set. Except for the little strip of dsp at the bottom.

I colored in the flower with my Perfect Plum Marker and  because the image has a lot of black in it it almost looks like it’s shaded but not. Love that I didn’t have to work hard at that effect.

Dimensions are:

  • Very Vanilla 4 1/4 x 11
  • Black Card Stock 4 x 5 1/4 for the mat
  • Vanilla Image piece 3 x 3 3/4
  • strip of DSP is 3/4 x 3 3/4
  • Scrap of Vanilla to stamp the stamps on


  • Stamp the image onto the 3 3/4 vanilla piece
  • Color in the flower with any color you desire
  • Attach the black mat to the card front
  • Stamp the stamps on the scrap of vanilla and punch out.
  • Add the stamp first to the black card mat
  • then the image
  • then the strip of dsp
Supplies needed to recreate this card:
