CCMC211 – Blue Ribbon

Yeah!  We're back after our break at the Stampin' Up! Convention!  Create with Connie and Mary has a FUN sketch challenge for you to try!  Pretty easy…so no excuses!  Get out those stamps and play along! 



I broke out my new Stampin' Up! Blue Ribbon stamp set.  I am using it for my Stamp Club project today, so since it was already out, I decided to use it for this sketch challenge, too. 



The base of my card is Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  I added the center panel of Whisper White and the Dotted Scallop Trim Border Punch of Daffodil Delight on each side.  I added a fun "flag" of the Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Pattern Designer Paper along the left edge.


I stamped the Blue Ribbon image in Daffodil Delight and punched the top with the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.  Then I cut out the bottom ribbon portion and adhered it under the scallop.  In the center, I stamped #1 in Rich Razzleberry and punched with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch, layered on the Silver Glimmer Paper for some extra sparkle.  In the center of the #1 is a Rhinestone Jewel, too.  All the layers are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, I inked up The Winner with Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight Stampin' Write Markers and stamped on the Whisper White panel.


Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary.  All our cards look so different, even using the same sketch!

I keep looking at this stamp in the catty waffling about whether I "need" it or not!  I think this card may have nudged me over to the "I must have it" side!  I love that bit of glimmer paper peeking out!

That color combo is so fresh and summery!  The little bit of glimmer paper adds a lotta party, too 🙂
