Stamping 411

Time again for another Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge!  It's an easy one for you this week!



I decided to use my Love & Care stamp set again today and made my own "designer paper" with the flowers and made the greeting from Word Play the focus of the card!



I started with a base of Poppy Parade cardstock and layered on the small dotted print from Sunny Garden DSP.  To coordinate with the DSP, I stamped the large flower from Love & Care with Peach Parfait on Whisper White and used the Poppy Parade Stampin' Write Marker to color in the center before I stamped it.  I did this several times randomly.  Then I went back and filled in with the small flower in Daffodil Delight, again using the Poppy Parade marker in the centers.  Finally, I added Pear Pizzazz leaves randomly around the flowers.  I layered the Whisper White on Pear Pizzazz and placed on the front of the card.


Next I stamped the greeting from Word Play, inked up with the Poppy Parade and Peach Parfait Stampin' Write Markers on Whisper White.  I used the large flower stamp again with Peach Parfait in two of the corners and rounded the top corners with the Corner Rounder punch.  I layered the Whisper White on Poppy Parade cardstock that I also rounded the corners.  It was placed on front with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Finally, I added White Bakers Twine to the center of the Designer Button and placed it with Mini Glue Dots in the corner of the greeting…happily landing in the center of the flower there!


Make sure to check out what the rest of the Stamping 411 Design Team did with this sketch…then come play along!

Connie–I remember meeting you at Leadership–think it might have been at the closing session, but I know we met. Love your card for the sketch–I just mounted mine last night.  I played along, but my projects got in AFTER the link closed–oh well. One of these days I'll get to it before!
Hope you are well, Nola
