Stamping 411 Sketch Challenge

Good Morning Everyone and welcome to another Sketch Challenge from Stamping 411

I hope you will take the time to hop on over there and see the work of the other talented “Operators”…it’s a very fun place to be!!! Maybe even play along.

Her is my interpretation of the sketch:Stamping 411 Sketch 135 002 ssc135 Sketch 135

I’m showcasing some of our delightful Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper on the left side of the card…it is cut to 1 3/4 x 5 1/4 I then mounted it on a piece of Pumpkin Pie to tie it together. That piece is cut at a 1 7/8 x 5 1/4

I then wanted to use so saffron to really tie it together so did a mat cut at 4 x 5 1/4 and put the pumpkin piece on top. It looked a bit bland to me so I looked around my really messy work area and got out my template from my Mat pack and used the Circles as a template and made white circles with my Signo Gel Pen. Instant Designer Paper of my own!!

I then did my image with our Level 2 Hostess set in the New Occasions Mini and stamped in Basic Brown and colored with my Aqua Painter and Watercolor Wonder Crayons.  The image piece is cut at 2 1/8 x 2 3/8 and mounted on Pumpkin Pie cut at 2 1/4 x 2 1/2. I then had a strip I had been playing with using our new Pinking Hearts Border Punch and so not to waste I pieced it together around the edges of Pumpkin.

I almost forget the base of the card is white cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2

The final touch is a bow done with our new Satin Ribbon in white held together with a Rhinestone Brad.

I hope you enjoyed my share today and hope to see you back soon.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!
