Stamping 411 Sketch 221

Hi Everyone,

It’s time for another Sketch Challenge from stamping 411. I hope you will take a bit of time and join in the fun. We’d love to see what you come up with.

Here is this weeks sketch 221


…and my interpretation.

This week I’m showcasing the Gently Falling Tow Step Stampin’ Set from Stampin’ Up!.

It’ really fun and so easy to use. I did the Baby Wipe Technique on this one to get some different shades that matched the gorgeous Spice Cake Designer Series Paper that goes along so well with it.

My Card Base is Early Espresso cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. The next layer is More Mustard (who knew it could be so pretty) cut to 4 x 5 1/4. Then a Vanilla Image piece cut to 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 and stamped randomly with different leaf outline images in Early Espresso. I then took a baby wipe and added some drops of re-inkers in Soft Suede, More Mustard and Pool Party. Then stamped the 2 step fill in part of the stamps onto the baby wipe to pick up the inside color of the leaves and stamped.

I then cut a piece of the DSP to 1 1/4 x 12 and pleated every 1/2 inch on my new Simply Scored and pleated my DSP and taped on. Final touches are a double bow done with my lace ribbon and one of the new HUGE Buttons for a striking touch. The Designer Buttons match this DSP perfectly and come in Spice Cake.  I chose to use the mustard one to make it pop! Did you know that the 1 1/4 circle punch fits exactly into the center of the button? It makes a nice landing place for a cute little image. I attached that with glue dots to secure.

Thanks for stopping in….hope you enjoyed my share and look forward to seeing you next time.
