Stamping 411 Peaceful Season

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to another Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge.

Here is the sketchssc166

…and here is my interpretation of the sketch.

I’ve showcased the Peaceful Season for this card….I’m sort  of loving the simplicity of it and ease to work with it. Of course the Designer Series Paper make’s it super easy!!

Peaceful Season 002

I’ve actually got a lot more going on than meets the eye here. Like the Brayered Background on the Cherry Cobbler as see below….

Peaceful Season 003

I did this by Brayering ink onto the texture plate and then placing my card front on it and running it through the Big Shot.  Fun and easy and WOW Technique.

The first layer or scrap is 5 1/2” wide by just 1” or whatever you have handy…I only wanted it for the top Chocolate Chip Layer. Then I attached it to the Very Vanilla 1 3/4 “ x 5 1/2 “ and then the DSP 1 5/8” x 5 1/2”

I punched out some 1 1/4” circles and cut them in half for the bottom treatment. Then I placed my Ovals on top using two layers of dimentionals to pop it up even further. I could have used our pop up glued dots but that would have required me getting up and getting them….sometimes I’m so bad!! I added a Holly image that I cut out of the DSP and then a bit of ribbon and lace with a Vintage Brad Wrap….ooohhh I like that name…”Vintage Brad Wrap” I think I’ve got something there!!!

Anyway I hope you will check out what the other Operators are up to, they always have the best of the best to share. Thanks Selene for another wonderful Sketch….you’re the BEST!!!

Hope you can play along this week….

Thanks for stopping by and as always

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!
