Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge


Wow…another week has flown by and it is time for the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge!  This week’s sketch was fun…I love the circle in the background!

I pulled out my Scallop Circle XL die and ran it thru the Big Shot with the new Autumn traditions Designer Paper.  This pattern reminds me of leaves falling off the tree!  I used a base of Always Artichoke and then layered on Elegant Eggplant.  The DSP is on top of it.  Then I stamped the pinecones from Autumn Days, using my Close to Cocoa and Always Artichoke markers, then stamping on Whisper White.  I layered it on Always Artichoke and then More Mustard cardstock.

Finally, I added the new Modern Tag to the front and attached it with two Antique Brass mini brads.  I like the way it overlaps the design element layers!  Fun!

I have a BUSY weekend trying to put all my last minute stuff together for Convention.  I still need to print off instructions, directions and info on the group swaps I’m doing!  I’m sure it will all get done, but I told my husband that he probably wouldn’t see much of me this weekend!  lol!

Have a great weekend!  Make sure to play along with the Stamping 411 sketch challenge and leave your submission on Mr. Linky!
