I love the sketch this week over on Create with Connie and Mary. I took a little liberty as mine isn't real Clean & Simple, but it isn't hard…so I think it still fits!
And here is my card…very appropriate the past few days as it has been GREAT kite flying weather! 60s and WINDY!
I started with a base card of Real Red. I have a layer of Bashful Blue that I stamped the clouds in Baseful Blue at the top. I cut a 2 1/2" Circle and cut off the bottom portion…I was going for a stylized "world" look. Then I ran it thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice folder for some texture. I wrapped the 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon around and tied a knot. I stamped the strings for the kites in Early Espresso, then stamped the different colors of kites on Whisper White and cut them out. They are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals. I punched two cupcake frosting punches of Whisper White for extra clouds. Finally, I stamped Celebrate You in Early Espresso on a scrap of Whisper White, then cut a pennant tail on it, tucked behind the "world". Hope you like it…I thought it was fun!
Make sure to check out what the rest of the Challenge Team did this week over on Create with Connie and Mary! Lots of variety using this sketch! Grab your stamps and play along! We love to see your work!
