Stamping 411 Sketch 201~Beyond the Garden

Hi Everyone,

I can’t wait to share a little Sneak Peak of what’s to come with some of the fabulous Designer Series Paper as a focal point on my challenge card this week.

sketch 201 006

This was a very fun sketch to work with. I just knew I wanted to cut into one of the sheets of the new DSP called Beyond the Garden coming up in the new Summer Mini. The card Base is Melon Mambo and cut at 4 1/4 x 11 and followed with a mat of Wild Wasabi cut to 4 x 5 1/4. The Beyond the Garden is cut to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 followed by a Wild Wasabi Mat 2 1/8 x 3 1/8 and a Whisper White Embossed piece that is 2 x 3. the Happy Mother’s Day is stamped in Melon Mambo on Whisper White 1 x 2 7/8 using the Stamp from the All Holidays Stamp Set. It is attached to a Wild Wasabi Mat cut to 1 1/8 x 3. I added 3 Rhinestones to add a bit of Sparkle to the card. The flower is actually one of the flowers cut from the DSP and colored in with a Aqua Painter and Melon Mambo re-inker. I then attached it with Dimensionals. The bow is done with my bow maker and I did a double loop bow to top it off.

This card to little to no time and was great fun to make. I think this DSP rather speaks for itself don’t you?

I hope that you will find the time to play along this week over at the Stamping 411 Blog.

Thanks for stopping in.

Bold papers can be so hard to work with. But, you've shown us exactly how to use it without the card looking busy. So incredibly stunning!

Lee, I always enjoy checking out your cards. You have such a wonderful clean appearance to your creations! I am wondering though, how do you make the double loop bows, I have not figured that one out yet?
