Oh So Sweet

Good Morning Everyone,

Here’s a sweet little addition to the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge for the week. Doesn’t it look good enough to eat?

On a pedestal Sketch 105 image

For my rendition of this sketch I used one of our ne Stamp Sets called “On a Pedestal” . Along with that I just had to use some of our new In color Cardstock. It’s called Melon Mambo, isn’t it GORGEOUS??? anyway here is what I did:

I used my Polka Dot Background and stamped it onto the Melon Mambo using White Craft Ink. I then cut a two strips of Chocolate Chip at 1” x 4 1/4” and used my scallop border punch on it and dotted each scallop with my white gel pen.

Next I cut a piece of Whisper White 1 1/4” x 4 1/4” and stamped it side by side with the cute little sweet stamp that is in the set with Melon Mambo Ink. using a Stamp-a-ma-jig would come in handy for that.

To finish the card off I punched a scallop circle in Chocolate Chip using our scallop Circle Punch and and dotted the scallops to match the scalloped border, attached a 1 3/8 circle in white and then stamped my little ‘Truffle” on white and cutting it out. to color the Truffle I used my new Stampin’ Up! In color Melon Mambo Marker along with my Chocolate Chip Marker. (Once you apply the color with markers, make sure to huff on it to remoisten the ink before stamping). I then applied a bit of Crystal Effects to the top of the Truffle and Voila! Instant Cuteness!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’ll play along with this weeks challenge. All you have to do is go to www.stamping411.blogspot.com and submit your card. Good Luck!!

Now go out and have a Stampinglee Good Day!
