Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

Hi Everyone,

It’s that time again. Time to play along with the Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge.

Here is the sketch:

ssc158 (2)

…and my interpretation…..

  411 swap Cards 004  I selected the cute little Bouquet Bunch from our Summer Mini for this cute little card. I incorporated some of our new Cajun Craze cardstock which is so rich and yummy and paired it with Chocolate Chip and Old Olive. It’s a pretty combination and will be fun to work with in the Fall.

The card Base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded in half. Then I embossed a Old Olive mat by running it through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder (love, love, love that texture).

My little mats measure 2 1/3 x 3 1/4 for the chocolate chip, 2 1/8 x 3 1/8 for the Cajun Craze and the image piece is 2 x 3

I used a combination of colors using my Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen to achieve the colors of the pot. Let’s not forget my little Butterfly that is done in Chocolate Chip. My Ribbon was made with my 5/8” Chocolate Chip Grosgrain.

Well that’s it for today. I’m so happy you stopped by and hope to see you back soon.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!

Really like today's sketch and your card is just wonderful. I love that little image, it is just so cute and versatile. Your bow is fantastic, you must show us how you made it! Those colors that you chose really rock together. This will be one card that will probably get CASED, and probably by me, hee, hee. Great job.

Cyber hugs, Trish in Wisconsin
