I found another challenge site, Stamping 411 I like doing these because it pushes me to design something, rather than just looking through Stampin' Connection or Splitcoast Stampers and finding something I really like and CASE (copy and share everything) it. Anyway, this is the sketch for the sketch challenge #155 It has taken me all day to plan this sketch out, and I'm still not sure I'm all the happy with the final product. I feel like something is missing, but I'm not sure what. If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions I'd love it if you'd share them with me. As always all products are SU.
Stamps: Flower Fancy, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry, Pretty in Pink Textured, and Whisper White
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Black StazOn
Punches: Large Oval, Scallop Oval and Scallop Edge
Accessories: Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot Ribbon, Sponge Dauber (to sponge around the large oval with greeting stamped on it), Finial Press Embossing Folder (for the early espresso), Paper Snips to cut the flowers and leaves out after they were stamped), Dimensionals to make the greeting pop up and SNAIL (Simple Neat Adfordable In-Line) adhesive to put it all together
To do the flower in the front I did a technique that I got from the Stampin' Up website called Rock & Roll . It's really easy to do and gives the stamp a bit of a different look. Anyways, I hope you like the card. Feel free to contact me with questions, my email address is in my header.
