Sketch Challenge

Here is the Sketch we were given this week by Makeesha on our demo group.


I’ve managed to make 2 cards with this sketch so far.

This first one is using the Eastern Blooms stamp set.

Eastern Blooms 2

Stamp sets: Eastern Blooms, Sincere Salutations, Sanded
Card: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Groovy Guava, Very Vanilla
Ink: Blue Bayou inkpad, Blue Bayou & Soft Sky Markers*
Accessories: Round Tab Punch, Scallop Circle Punch, District Ribbon Originals, Chunky Sprinkles, Mono Multi Purpose Adhesive, Paper Piercing Template & Tool (Tool Kit), Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the second card I just had to use Embrace Life stamp set.

Embrace Life 6

With this card I decided to scallop edge the bottom piece of layering. I also added a thin strip of dsp instead of ribbon on the second layer and I just left the flower on it’s own rather than layering it onto a circle. The flower has been stamped onto a piece of Ginger Blossom DSP using Ruby Red ink and a Very Vanilla 1/2 backed pearl added.

Stamp sets: Embrace Life, Curvy Verses
Card: Groovy Guava, Rose Red, Very Vanilla, Ginger Blossom DSP
Ink: Ruby Red
Accessories: Very Vanilla 1/2 backed pearl (Pretties Kit), Scallop Edge Punch, Paper Piercing template & tool (Tool Kit), Mini Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals.
