it's Saturday! Time for another sketch challenge from Stamping 411. I must say, I love the sketches that Selene has been doing lately! If you attend my classes, you'll see some of these as the basis for future cards we will do! I'm combining this challenge with the Late Night Stampers challenge since the theme is masculine, I thought it fit that criteria.
I can't tell you the last time I used Stampin' Up!'s Lovely As A Tree set. I know it has been in my stamping arsenal since I first began because I made one of my first swap cards at Convention using it! It is just a timeless stamp set…good for every occasion!
I started with a base of More Mustard cardstock. I ran the Really Rust layer thru the Big Shot with the woodgrain texturz plate and then stamped "Thankful Thoughts of You" from Grateful Greetings in the lower right corner. I added a couple strips of designer paper from Autumn Meadows Designer Pack. Then I stamped the tree with Chocolate Chip ink on Vanilla Naturals cardtock and used my sponge daubers to add the Really Rust, More Mustard and Garden Green colors to the tree and grass area. I colored the trunk of the tree with Close to Cocoa Classic Ink and a Blender pen. This piece was layered onto Chocolate Chip cardstock and placed on the front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
Make sure to check out what the other Stamping 411 Operators did this week! I'm sure their cards will be awesome!
