SSS113 Sketch Challenge







Supplies:


Stamp Set: Birds and Roses by 'Sweet 'N Sassy'. Cardstock is Stampin Up! Sage Shadow, Very Vanilla and Creamy Caramel. The Designer Paper is Curio Carmella by Basicgrey. The ribbon is just a green grosgrain. The leaves are cut from a floral stem by Prima Marketing. Adhesives: Sticky Tape, Dimensionals and Dots by Stampin Up!. The Lace is Crochet Trim 'Victoria' (SU). Flowers are cut from the other side of the Designer Paper Curio Carmella. I used a 'Tim Holtz' Embossing folder (Music) just under the lace trim and below that is a border (Vanilla) cut with a Martha Stewart punch (Fan). I used the large Sizzix Scalloped Circle die for the shape of the card as well as Spellbinders Scalloped Edge and Circle. The Ink is SU Cameo Coral. This challenge is all about a round card! This is my entry for this challenge....believe me I am inspired by this website and I think you will be too. So many creative ideas on http://sweetstopsketches.blogspot.com/. Take time to look. Thanks for taking time to look at my card. Any questions please ask!

SSS112 Sketch Challenge









Supplies:Our Daily Bread Designs: 'Serve The Lord' Stamp Set। Crocheted Circle Die.Stampin' Up!: Chalk 'Pastels', Whisper White Cardstock, Vellum , and 'Dimensionals'। Ranger: 'Stickles' Glitter Glue Orange Peel, Baby Blue, Frosted Lace, Scattered Straw. Studio G Glitter Glue Yellow and Green. Stamp image on white cardstock. Run die with stamped image through die machine. I stamped my image two more times and layered one on another (so that is was three high). Use the chalks or water-color crayons to add color where desired. Then I randomly placed glitter-glue just where it was pleasing to my eye. On the stems, flowers, etc. A SU 'Build-a-brad' acrylic clear top exactly fit on top of the 'post-mark' part of the stamped image. The card base was embossed with a 'Tim Holtz' folder after spreading orange litter-glue randomly across the card. Also I used orange, blue and yellow stamp-pads across the middle of the front dragging color across card. The vellum I sponged orange around and used as a base for the yellow frame.The ribbon is 'Crushed Curry' Polka-dot by SU. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! Any questions please ask. I am happy to share!
