Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge 170

Hi Everyone,

The sketch this week was fun to work with…I hope you will join in the fun over at Stamping 411

Here is the sketch:


…and my interpretation.


Sketch 170 006

The card base is Sahara Sand cut at 5 1/2” x 8 1/2”

The Deck the Halls DSP is cut at 2 1/4” x 5 1/2”

Sahara Sand top piece is 2 1/4 x 5 1/2 and run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

Cherry Cobble Mat is 2-3/8 x 3-3/8

Image piece is 2- 1/4 x 3 -1/4

I stamped the Bird from Cardinal Christmas on Very Vanilla Card Stock and colored with my Markers, Cherry Cobbler, Pumpkin Pie. Old Olive and Soft Suede. I wanted Mr. Cardinal to be deep and rich in color.

I used my light blue Water Color Pencil to draw an edge around the bird and then blend out with a blender pen to create a shadow of sorts. I then mounted the image onto the Cherry Cobbler Mat.

The extra piece of Embossed Sahara Sand was attached to the top of the card. I then made my ribbon treatment and attached it to the dsp with adhesive and attached it to the bottom of the card. Then added dimensionals to the image and popped it on. That’s it. Nice and easy.

I hope you will play along with us Operators this week. It will be fun seeing what everyone comes up with.

Hope you all have a….

Stampinglee Good Day!

This is three weeks in a row without using Whisper White as a base. Was there an alien abduction in FL? just kidding!!!

I SO love this, Lee! The richness of the cardinal is even more enhanced by the subtle blue glow!

Beautiful card!!!!!

Keep em all guessing GF! I think it's hysterical that everyone is pinning you to white! :D We all go through different stages.. Keep em guessing! The changes in my style almost always reflect changes in my life... I hope everything is uneventful soon. I think your cardinal is fantastic. Wonderful coloring. Beautiful job.
