Stamping 411 Sketch 177

Hi Everyone,

You guessed it….time for another sketch challenge from Stamping 411 I hope you will take some time for yourself and play along with us this week.

Here is the sketch……………..

SSC177

…and my interpretation…..

Come To Bethlehem and 411 Sketch and Box Template 004

Funny this whole card was geared around this little scrap of DSP sitting on my desk.  It’s one of the patterns in the Deck the Halls Designer Series Paper. the bottom images is from the stamp set Vintage Vogue and stamped in Early Espresso. I did color in a few of the images….

I embossed an extra piece of very vanilla with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder to attach to the card. I assembled the card and decided it needed a bit of Cajun Craze and to really mix it up add some of our Chantilly Lace Ribbon. Kind of funky and lots of different textures and patterns….

It reminded me of an old German Restaurant we used to go to years ago….all these colors and Chantilly Lace. Little bit of Nostalgia there….

The measurements for the card are:

Card Base in Early Espresso 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 , Cajun Craze Mat 4 x 5 1/4 , Vanilla Mat 3-7/8 x 5 1/8, Ealry Espresso strip 1 x 5 1/8, DSP 7/8 x 5 1/8, I added the testured piece to it and it is 2 1/2 x 3 7/8. The image piece is2 1/4 x 3 and the mat for that is 2 3/8 x 3 1/8.

I stamped the image in Early Espresso and colored with my Blender Pen and Watercolor Pencils. I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.
