Stamping 411 Sketch 187

Hi Everyone,

Back form Leadership and ready to get back into the swing of things…..starting with my Stamping 411 Card.

Here is the sketch:

SSC187

…and the cute little card I came up with.

The drinks look yummy don’t they? Cool fun and refreshing.

This stamp is in our Cheers to You Set and makes card making so simple …I’ve always enjoyed this set.

\Sketch 187 002  The card Base is White and is cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded in half. The dotted mat is run through the Big Shot with the embossing Folder and popped up with Dimensionals It measures 4 x 5 1/4 . The Pear Pizazz mat is 2 1/4 x 4 1/4, the Melon Mambo Mat is 2 1/8 x 4 1/4 and the image piece is 2 x 4.

I stamped the glasses on with Black Stazon and colored with my Watercolor Pencils and Blender Pen. Love the ease of coloring like that. Just run a line of color around the inside line of the image and pull in with your Blender Pen in a Circular motion. It’s so fun! You can add a bit more color in some areas for shading.

I topped it off with the fabulous Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding and made a double bow and a cute Melon Mambo Button with a bit of linen thread through it.  How fun!! I love pops of color on white…..so fun and striking. I hope you like it.

Well that’s it for today…..I hope you will visit the other Operators Blogs and certainly play along. We’d love to have you.

It's too cold here today for a frosty drink. When I woke up this morning it was -22. Yikes!

This card is wonderful! Just like you! It makes me want to hop on a plane and head to somewhere tropical!

Love it! Your coloring on the drinks make them absolutely "drink-able". Unfortunately it's only 8 a.m. so I guess I will just have to drool over your card!
