Did you have a chance to go over and play the Stamping 411 guessing game in celebration of our One Year Anniversary of Stamping 411 Sketch Blog? It's been a fun year! Selene came up with the idea for us to post one of the other Design Operator's cards on our blog, and have the readers guess whose card it might be from the style. She'll be posting the Blog Candy Winners soon…so check it out!
I must have fooled a lot of people because guesses for me were way over the board, even from the Design Operators! I hope that means I have a very eclectic style! I think I confused everyone with Gretchen because she had posted the scallop envelope the week before…my card was already in the mail and I didn't know it! But now for the Big Reveal…here is MY actual card.
I started with a base of Bashful Blue cardstock and layered along the bottom the diagonal strip pattern from Travel Journal Designer Paper. The top Kraft layer, I stamped randomly with Night of Navy Classic Ink and the Sentimental Jouney Stamp Set. I also used Itty Bitty Backgrounds for some added speckles of Night of Navy ink. I wrapped two pieces of Night of Navy Grosgrain Ribbon around to the back to secure and hide the seam.
I ran the Scallop Envelope die thru the Big Shot with Night of Navy cardstock, then ran it thru again with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder to emboss it. I placed it on the front with a small Bashful Blue card inside that I stamped with Stampin' Up!'s Wonderful Favorites stamp set in Night of Navy Classic Ink. Finally, I stamped the compass from Sentimental Jouney in Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink and punched with the 1" circle punch. I added an Vintage mini brad in the center and adhered it to the envelope.
We sent our cards off to Selene to photograph…she did a mini swap and mailed them out randomly to the other Design Operators…I wonder who got mine?
I hope you have a wonderful day! My Stamp Clubs meet tonight…need to finish up getting ready for them and CLEAN my room! lol!
