Hand Stamped Sentiments Sketch Challenge #25

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments – a sketch challenge.  Come play and post your interpretation of this sketch featured in the July issue of Success Magazine.  This magazine is put out every month exclusively for SU demonstrators to help us be better demos and to feature fabulous projects.  This is just one of the benefits of being a SU demo.

Sketch ChallengeI’ve been having a lot of fun with my Artistic Etchings, Chic Boutique and All a Flutter stamps.  Lately I have also been using vellum.  This paper is great because it adds a touch of elegance to any project.  I stamped with craft white and embossed in clear the butterflies on vellum and I also took a strip and ran it through the Big Shot with my Polka Dots folder.  I love that looks like lace.  The sentiment from Artistic Etchings and scroll frame are stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with black.  The black card base is smooched with silver.  Click to enlarge the photo so you can see the shimmery silver on black.

Mojo Monday #142 Contest

I ‘ve been meaning to play at Mojo Monday and I finally submitted.  It’s the first Monday of the month, so that means it’s CONTEST time!  The sketch for this week is so fun!  There are so many great entries.  Hop on over take a look and take the challenge.  Contest closes at 8PM MT on Sunday, June 13.

Mojo Monday week 42 sketchSince I had to make a thank you card I took the opportunity to play.  I have the All a Flutter stamp and smooch sprays I wanted to try out.

The card base is Basic Black and the the scalloped layer is More  Mustard CS, the Chocolate Chip layer is smooched with Log Cabin smooch.

I first smooched a piece of Whisper White CS with Silver and Log Cabin smooch. Whenever I smooch I use the handy Color Catcher to prevent spraying on my table and I use my heat tool to dry the spray on my project.   I then stamped the butterfly image with Black StazOn and heat embossed with clear embossing powder then colored the image with markers, Summer Sun, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa, then cut it out with paper snips.

I took a square piece of Whisper White and stamped with VersaMark the vines from Wings of Friendship on opposite corners then heat embossed with clear embossing powder then I sponged with More Mustard ink.  I did the direct pad to paper method for an intense color.

The small flowers are also from the Wings of Friendship set.  I smooched another piece of card just with the Silver smooch then stamped three flowers with Black StazOn then cut them out with paper snips.

I smooched two square pieces of Basic Black CS with Silver and Log Cabin smooch then ran them through my Big Shot using the Scribbles Swirls Sizzlits die.  The swirls were used to decorate the square and the small circles were used for the center of the small silver flowers.

The flowers with the sentiment were created with the Circle Scallop punch.  I punched a More Mustard and Basic Black circle scallop then cut to the center every two scallops then curled the petals to add dimension.  I smooched both flowers with Silver smooch.

I stamped the ‘Thank You’ sentiment from the Pedaling Past stamp set with Gold Encore ink then cut it out with paper snips and adhered to the scallop flowers with a dimensional.

I then used glue dots and dimensionals to adhere the images to the square.   The ribbon is a non-SU ribbon purchased from Michael’s.
