Stamping 411 Sketch 174


Hi Everyone,

Welcome back! I have a fun, fast and fabulous card for you today. It’s time for the Stamping 411 sketch challenge again.

Here is the sketchSSC174

…..and her is my card…..I deviated a bit on the bottom….it was just screaming Ribbon to me so I did it.

sketch 174 002

This card is so easy and I think a WOW!! Cards don’t have to be difficult to be a WOW….let me tell you what I did.

Stamp Set is a Level 2 Hostess Set called Peaceful Season

Card Base is 4 1/4 x 11 in Very Vanilla

Black Mat is 3 –7/8 x 5 1/8 and DSP is 3-3/4 x 5

I sponged the edges of the DS with Black Stazon and adhered to the black Mat. I then cut a black mat 2-1/8 x 3- 1/8 and my image piece is 2 x 3

I stamped the image with Black Stazon to give it that rich black look. I then added the Peace on Earth image and mounted it with dimensionals onto the black mat. I felt it needed a little POP so I took my 2-Way Glue pen and ran it down the edges of the image piece and sprinkle on some Dazzling Diamonds. WOW!! It popped alright.

I made a bow and wrapped it around the matted DSP Piece and attached to the card front with dimensionals. Then I assembled…..I still felt it needed a little something….so I stamped the world and cut it out and attached to the center of the bow. Then I thought why not add the sparkle to the edges of the card……oh my…it’s so pretty in person. I actually had to go outside to capture some of the sparkle and still didn’t capture all of it.

So that’s it….an easy, fun and WOW card that took very little time. I hope you enjoyed your visit and will go over to Stamping 411 this week and play along.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day
