Baroque Motif

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to my Blog and another Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge.

This was a very interesting challenge for me as I wanted to do something so different for me. I hope you enjoy it.

Here is the sketch:ssc122

…and my interpretation…..

Sketch 122

I wanted a really “Modern” Christmas Card for this Challenge. So here is what I did.

I cut my fold-over to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2

The Basic Gray Layer is stamped with the design from the Baroque Motif Set from Stampin’ Up!…sort of resembles a snowflake, right? It measure 2 1/2 x 5 1/2

The next layer is the Real Red Cardstock behind the paid I made and it measures 2 3/4 x 2 7/8

The Whisper White cardstock on top is cut at 2 5/8 x 2 3/4

To get pattern of the line I drew with my Basic Gray and on top drew with my Versamarker then heat set with clear embossing powder. So all of those lines are embossed with marker and Versamarker…cool, huh?

My image piece is cut at 2x2 and is stamped in Versamark first and then Basic Gray….so both inks have to be on the stamp before you stamp…..then pour on a little Clear Embossing Powder and Heat set. It’s so cool IRL!! I matted it onto a 2 1/8 x 2 1/8 piece of Real Red Cardstock after I added my Rhinestone Brad and popped up the image piece with dimensionals. I also did the same technique with the sentiment.

I hope you like it and also hope you’ll join at Stamping 411 for this weeks challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and as always….

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!

Hi Lee,

Very fun and modern card. When I saw it I thought it might even work for a Hanukkah card or a card for the High Holidays earlier in the year for my Jewish friends and family memebers. Especially if the red was switched for blue.

Thanks for sharing the inspiration once again. One of these days I'll get into the challenges myself.
