Stamping 411 Sketch 246 ~ Creative Elements

Hi Everyone,
I’m excited about today’s sketch. It’s fun and easy and I’ve chosen one of my fav stamp sets.
Here is the sketch:
SSC_246 …and my interpretation.
sketch 246 and event pictures for Christina and me 012
I’ve used the Creative Elements Set which I so enjoy creating with. Sure makes it easy to creative something beautiful.
  • I stamped the flower three times and cut to three different sizes in Rose Red, then popped each layer up with dimensionals. then added one of our new Jumbo Pearls.
  • The black mat is cut to 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 then I added a piece as an afterthought using the Ribbon Border Punch at the bottom of it.
  • The Very Vanilla Image Piece is cut to 3 1/4 x 4 1/2 and stamped with the flourish and colored in with my Aqua Painter and Crayons. I love color layering like this. So fun!
  • I stamped the Thanks from Rue des Fleurs in Black Stazon as well.
  • My Black strip down the center of the card is actually black cardstock and cut to 1/2 x 5 1/2 .
  • I added the image layer with dimensionals and added the flower.
  • To finish it off I added tiny little pearls to the flourish where possible to give it that little extra touch.
  • I then attached my double bow done in Black Satin Ribbon to the top with glue dots.
  • My card base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and is Very Vanilla
I hope you like it. Please make sure to hop on over to Stampin 411 to see what the other talented Operators are up to an hopefully play along. We’d love to have you visit!!
