Stamping 411 Sketch #242 Party This Way!

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog and another fun week of sketches from Stamping 411.

Here is today's sketch…how fun is this???



…and my interpretation.


I decided to do something a bit different for me. Okay so it’s still white but look at all that color!!! We’ve got Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral and Wisteria Wonder!! Hole Moly can you stand it?

The card base is 4 1/4 x 11 and folded in half. The Wisteria Wonder Mat is cut to 4 x 5 1/4. The next mat is white and run through The Big Shot with the Stripes Embossing Folder…that’s the right side and it measures 2 x 4 3/4. The side with the words on it is cut to 2 1/2 x 4 3/4 and stamped randomly with the Happy Birthday Stamp from “Party this Way”. It’s one of the free sets for Sale-a-Bration.

I then stamped the balloons with all three colors and punched out with my 1 1/4” Square Punch and matted onto colored card stock of the same color punched with the Scalloped Square Punch. I added a bit of Wisteria Wonder Ruffled Ribbon to divide the two sides. 

My Party this Way arrow is colored with Markers and stamped on white and cut out. I then mounted it on Wisteria Wonder and cut again. It’s popped up with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed my share today and will take the time to see what the other Operators have done.

Have a great weekend.

I really like this card. Very different from what I am usually drawn too but I think I'm going to have to make this one. Thanks for sharing!
