Since I had Stampin' Up!'s July Fourth set out on my desk already, I decided to use it again for the Stampin' Connection Sketch Challenge (SCCSC18) this week. Stampin' Connection is an online resource similar to Splitcoaststampers, but it is JUST for demos! LOTS of creative ideas there! This was a fun sketch…a square card!
I started with a base of Real Red cardstock and wrapped my Real Red Striped Ribbon across the bottom third of it. I cut a square of Brilliant Blue cardstock and stamped the small trio of stars randomly on it with Brilliant Blue Classic Ink. I then ran it thru the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Impressions Folder. It was layered on Whisper White. Then I inked the Happy 4th of July greeting with my Real Red and Brilliant Blue Stampin' Write Markers and stamped in the lower left corner of the Whisper White panel. I stamped the large star image in Real Red and Brilliant Blue, then punched with the Large Star Punch. I popped them up on the Whisper White with Stampin' Dimensionals and layered it on Brilliant Blue.
Finally, I used the Itty Bitty Round Punch and Bitty Round Buttons in the upper left corner of the card. Fun card and a fun sketch!
We are starting on our last week over on the Create with Connie and Mary subscribers site, but remember the site stays up long after the session is done, so you can refer back to all the projects. We have been featuring the Summer Mini stamp sets and products. There is a new project posted every day and several fabulous tutorials each and every week. You are welcome to use our ideas and projects in your classes and camps, we just ask that you do not submit our ideas to magazines, publications or contests, including Stampin' Up!'s challenges and So Shelli creative challenge. For more information and to see a few samples, check out our Preview Week projects at Create with Connie and Mary!
