Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Time for another Sketch Challenge from Stamping 411. I hope you will play along this week, it’s easy and fun. Hope to see you over there. If nothing else make sure to check out all the fabulous work by my fellow Operators and our Guests!!

Here is the Sketch:ssc157 (2)

….and my interpretation……

411 swap Cards 002   

I had decided to use some of our new Cardstock “ Cherry Cobbler”, it’s just a beautiful color and so rich. I paired it with Whisper White to get the clean crisp look I love.

The card base is cut at 4 1/4” x 11 and folded in half. I then cut the white mat to 3 7/8” x 5 1/8”

I made a bow with my Magic Bow Maker only this time I tried making a double bow and it worked!! I just wrapped it around twice and it’s a sweet little double Bow. I attacehed it to the back with Adhesive and then placed the white Dotted (ran through my Big Shot with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder) piece on my Cherry Cobbler. My image piece is 1 5/8 x 1 3/4 and popped up with dimensionals onto my dotted mat. I made the mat by stamping the polka dot stamp in the “For All You Do” Stamp Set 4 times and cut out to make the square and mounted onto the Cherry Cobble Mat which measures 2 3/4 x 2 7/8. I also popped that up with dimesnionals. It was still pretty stark so I added the little tiny slivers of Cherry Cobble to the corners to give it a little punch…I attached those with my Tombo Multi..(love that stuff).

It still needed just a little something so I made a little Friends tag with my Tiny Tags set and punch.

So there ya go….my little share for today. I hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by and as always…

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!
