Stamping 411 Sketch 220 ~Pines and Poinsettias

Hi Everyone,

Boy are you going to have fun doing this weeks Sketch Challenge #220. I found it easy and fun and quickly put together. Hope you do too.

Here is the sketch:

…and my card:

Sketch 200 and stocking card 004

Isn’t this pretty and clean and crisp? As you know it’s my favorite kind of card…so this one was easy peasy for me.

It features the Pines and Poinsettias Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up!….go this one FREE….love that.

I inked the pine cones with my Soft Suede marker and then did the leaves and vines in Always Artichoke Marker….finishing it off with the Cherry Cobbler Marker for the Holly Berries. You then huff on it….(heavy breathing) to re-moisten the ink and stamp. Like I said ….easy-peasy. I then punched it out with the 1 3/4” Circle punch and mounted that on a circle from the Circles Die. I mounted that on a rectangle of Whisper White measuring 2 3/8 x 3 3/8 and that is framed with Cherry Cobbler that is cut to 2 1/2 x 3 1/2.

I then ran a piece of Whisper White and ran it through the Big Shot using the new Stripe Embossing Folder. Love that thing it embosses beautifully and you can do so much with it. I added a 2x4 Piece of Frostwood Lodge DSP and used some of the new Quilted Satin Ribbon in Cherry Cobbler…so yummy! I added some pearls to finish off the sketch and voila’ Instant Card. I hope you like it.

Make sure to visit the Stampin 411 blog and if you can play along. It’s so much fun and there is so much to see.
