It's Saturday and time for another Stamping 411 sketch challenge! I always love to see what the other Operators create. I'm amazed at how different our cards normally are, even using the same sketch!
I'm desperately wanting SPRING to get here and warm weather to get rid of the snow, so I thought I'd help it along by posting a spring card! I always love seeing the tulips pop up thru the ground.
This set, Stampin' Up!'s Garden Whimsey, hasn't been used for a LONG time, so I thought I'd give it a little ink. I also have a package of bright Kaleidoscope Designer Paper that I wanted to use.
I started by using my Stampin' Write markers to ink up the tulips in Pixie Pink and Melon Mambo, the stems in Certainly Celery and Garden Green. They were stamped three times on Whisper White and layered onto Garden Green. I used the dotted background paper in Kaleidoscope to tie the two greens together. I used the Eyelet Border punch along the bottom of a strip of Whisper White, then wrapped the Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon around the top portion of it and adhered to the back. This all was placed on the Pixie Pink base card. The butterflies were done using the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and Pixie Pink cardstock. I used a sponge dauber to add the darker Melon Mambo color around the edges. For their bodies, I used the little sticky rhinestones in the Eggcellent Egg Kit (I am LOVING those rhinestones!) It really makes them sparkle!
I hope you take a minute to check out what the rest of the Design Operators on Stamping 411 did with this sketch! Then make your card creation, upload it to your gallery or blog, and add it to Mr. Linky over on the Stamping 411 blog.
Have a great weekend! I'm going to be sorting stuff to get ready to do my taxes next week. Yuk!!!
