SSSC64 Sketch Challenge


Here's a sneak peak at one of the sets in the Stampin' Up! Summer Mini called Tropical Party!  I love this fun Coconut Drink image!  I used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC64, to line up my coconut drinks…we'll REALLY celebrate you after drinking these!  lol!


I started with a base card of Tempting Turquoise, cut into a 5 1/4 square card.  I added a layer of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and stamped the small flower from Stampin' Up!'s Tropical Party randomly across the top with Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink.  That piece is layered on Chocolate Chip cardstock.  I wrapped Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon around and tied with a knot.  I added a band of Tempting Turquoise Polka Dot from Island Oasis Designer Paper pack and a punched Scallop Edge from Old Olive Textured cardstock across the front.  Behind those layers, I added the stripe pattern from Island Oasis on the base card.    (The stripe is my FAVORITE!) 


Finally, I stamped the coconut drinks three times on Whisper White with Chocolate Chip Classic Ink, colored them with my Stampin' Write markers and cut them out.  I popped them up on the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added Celebrate You from Stampin' Up!'s A Little Birthday Cheer, stamped in Chocolate Chip Classic Ink on the bottom of the Pumpkin Pie cardstock layer.


Isn't this a FUN card?  I love that sketch and will be using it again I can tell!



Remember…it is Early Bird Registration time for Create with Connie and Mary!

So cute and refreshing.  Makes me want to sit out by my swimming pool and relax.
