Stamping 411 – Touch of Kindness

Here is another sketch challenge from Stamping 411 this week!  We hope you give it a try.  I must admit, I find the "trios" of images a little more challenging!  I'm sure I'll be slapping my head saying, why didn't I think of that! when I see what the Stamping 411 Operators did this week!



Here is my card using Stampin' Up!'s Touch of Kindness stamp set that is in the Summer Mini.  I love the darling little images, especially the cat!  I colored her to look like my little Bleach kitty!



This is nice and bright and SUMMERY looking, I think.  I started with a base of Rose Red cardstock.  I layered on Whisper White (which is almost completely covered except for the bottom, then added the polka dot and stripe patterns from the Simply Scrappin' Kit, Playful Polka Dots.  I LOVE that designer paper!  I had a ton of it left from a project, so am using it on my cards now!  I added a strip of Daffodil Delight cardstock that I punched with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch along the bottom.


I stamped the kitty with Black Stazon on Whisper White, then colored it with my AquaPainter and Basic Gray and Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Markers.  I used Daffodil Delight on the butterfly and Pumpkin Pie for her collar.  There is a tiny Rhinestone Jewel on her tag, but it is hard to see in this photo.  I stamped the scallop circle with Daffodil Delight in the corner so it looked like the sun and stamped hello in the center with Rose Red ink.  I used the fun Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch in Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie to make the flowers on each side of the stamped panel.  I added a Rose Red button in the center, tied with White Bakers Twine.


Very fun, isn't it?  Check out what the rest of the Stamping 411 Design Operators have done this week!  Then upload your creation following the sketch over there, too!  We love to see your designs!


Sharing creativity one stamped image at a time!
