Stamping 411 – On the Grow

Yes, I am loving this new stamp set in the Summer Mini, On the Grow!  I've used it again today for the Stamping 411 sketch challenge SSC201!  We are SO happy that you enjoyed our little "game" last week!  We had fun playing along ourselves!




And here is my card…I knew immediately that I would use Stampin' Up!'s On the Grow set and that the scooter would fit perfectly in the focal element spot!



I started with a base of Real Red cardstock.  I layered on Bashful Blue that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder.  I took my colors from the Celebrations Designer Paper…I love this polka dot pattern!  I  layered the DSP on Pacific Point cardstock.  I stamped the scooter in Black Stazon on Whisper White and used my Stampin' Write Markers in Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Pearl Pizzazz, Basic Black and Bashful Blue, plus used the AquaPainter to watercolor it.  I layered the Whisper White on more Pacific Point.  I wrapped two lengths of 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon around to the back and adhered.  I added an Old Olive button, tied with more 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon and adhered with Mini Glue Dots.


Finally, I stamped Celebrate from Fundamental Phrases in Black Stazon on Real Red and punched with the Curly Label Punch, cut it in half and placed it under the scooter focal piece.  I think it is a fun card!


Make sure to check out what the rest of the Stamping 411 Design Operators did this week!

This is too cool!  I LOVE what you did with the set and that it's NOT paired with pastel colored paper…It's nice to see this image paired up with a bright and happy paper!  Awesome!

The playfullness of the polka dot dsp ties in perfectly with the scooter.  It makes me want to hop on one and go exploring Paris.  It's a gorgeous card!
